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


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And maybe kickstarter debacles, like the Yogcast thing, have taught people the legitimacy of risk. (0 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts And the article is from 2010, long before KickStarter and the indie movement really became a thing. I believe today is much better to self-publish if you're a small/medium size developer. (3 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: I thought the same thing about other industries, it's the same everywhere. But I didn't know about the developer/publisher royalties ratio being so out of balance. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The indie scene may not lead to success for all participants, but it's also more viable than ever.. so.. there's that. (18 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: I haven't read it yet.. but the quote seems like common sense at this point. Vidya games is a big business. You could say the same thing about many large industries, especially entertainment. (18 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Jin187: Yes.. assuming an imaginary release schedule is definitely logic. (23 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The article is long, but I really recommend everyone at least reads the "In retrospect do you believe that Outerlight should have self-published the game?" section, sheds light in the business side. (24 minutes ago)
