I got reminded of Full Spectrum Warrior with the cover stuff, so this looks right up my alley.

looks excellent, wish they'd port it to Vita but I will take the PC version :)

Damn...that main base representation is just amazing. Really looking forward to this. Some old-fashioned turn-based aliens-spanking experience. No hectic smash&blast running&gunning. :-)

So many interesting things and a nice minimalistic interface. This game just will keep my attention for some time.

Construction of the bases looks beautiful and entertaining. A good addition to the gameplay.

mm.. so less soldiers on the field now, only one base, no tu... i take it all the omg momment will be gone from this also, when your player setps foward into the fog, and that could be his last... looks great for consolised game, shame we can't get dev team to actually remake xcom properly instead of there reinvision.. there has only ever been 3 good version apoc, unknow, terror.... looking foward to at least trying it on pc though

thanks for uploading guys

    aphex187 Wow noway i'll be buying CoD Remaster anytime soon, just over 200 people were playing it on PC in the last 24 hours :/ Rest of the maps are coming including Winter crash :( (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (6 Hours ago)
