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 I just went with the dealwithit route. There is now a fix for both FC3 and Blood Dragon. Blood Dragon shipped broken and difficult to fix too :( (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: I finished FC3 before there was a fix. I just had to take it slow and not make too many twitchy movements. It is only really obvious when you make broader/quicker movements. (1 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: You are right about more game breaking and Ubisoft's PC ports are very, very crappy. How hard is to bypass acceleration input and use raw input? (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And this isn't just a multiplayer or FPS issue, either. If you can't detect 1:1 mouse input in your PC game, you are doing it wrong. (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: Not only should we be able to use what we want, but controllers specifically designed for FPS players should not suck in your FPS game. As if supporting raw input were hard :| (3 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Ubisoft's PC ports have been terrible for a long time. (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: We should be able to play with what we feel more comfortable with. Someone did win one of EVO's fighting tournaments with a DualShock instead of an Arcade FightStick. (5 minutes ago)
