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

About the game

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (1 Hour ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Speaking of lootboxes.. OW League is on (London Spitfire vs. LA Valiant) [url] (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Their pay-DLC model produces more content than free-DLC models ever will.. and quality content. I just hate how they pay-gate weapons. That's pay to win. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wonder if the next Battlefield game will have premium/expansions. I have a feeling it won't. Mixed feelings on that generally. (3 Hours ago)
