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


What's up?

    MrWhite After just viewing the trailer, yeah, I see what Melmoth was on about. Stick a pair of red dungarees and a cap on her, and a mustache. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Irony is they are basing the film off of a reboot where you don't actually raid many tombs. The female rambo shooty shooty run and jump shit translates well, though. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Melmoth: Well, that's practically what Lara is now from the recent games. Anyway, most common traits of reboots in Hollywood boils down everything you knew about the original into a simplified trope (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog i just think it's an awful idea to base a movie on a game that had a terrible story, a terrible script and characters devoid of personality...including the protagonist. why would someone do that. lol (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but at least she isn't doing that super exaggerated breathy "acting" luddington does in the games (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the woman just looks so wooden as well. which is probably why she did well playing a robot in ex machina lol. (1 Hour ago)
