XCOM EU: Welcome to the base

A bit late but here is the latest dev diary of XCOM: Enemy Unknown where Firaxis talks about the base, the place where the player will be elaborating offensive and defensive plans against the invading enemies. The game will be out on October 9th (12th in Europe).

Can't wait to customize my base. Should be one of the best turn based strategy games to come out in a long time.

I was a little worried about this game, if they will not destroy the original idea and gameplay of the first games, but it looks better and better.

About the game

    GriftGFX Which adds a bit of a tactical RPG flair to it. The only JRPGs I like at all are tactics games like FFT and Tactics Ogre. (7 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @asdfg: In Divinity, you're given a certain number of AP (action points) to spend each turn, so beyond your combat options you also need to worry about party placement and monster movement. (8 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @asdfg: Nah, a lot of JRPGs don't even factor placement into it.. and just give you a contextual menu to pick from a limited number of options. (8 minutes ago)

    rayy @asdfg: well yeah maybe the difference are only aesthetics. I dont know I just feel they are not the same as western rpgs. Maybe is just the hair and beards :P (28 minutes ago)
