The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
For everybody out there it has been a while since you all txt on this comment thingy but it is confirm they are changing it to a third person shooter so cod people srry even tho it really wasn't IMO every game is differ but yea they have changed it so c u later ;-)
August 20th is a good day.
So Far August 20th has some wesome releasing titles such as the new Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Saints Row 4 and the new FPS XCOM: Declassified. I am looking forward to this and can't wait for it to release, I have been seeing comparisons to COD but in no way this looks like COD. Neither does it have zombies! This game is about your elite squad defending the Earth from Alien invasions not zombies people we have enough good zombie games like: Dead Island, Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil and many more, XCOM Enemy Unknown is persoanlly an awesome game I just think an FPS turn could make a good impact on the XCOM games.
WORLD WAR III
This game looks very dangerous, making it seem as if it is War of the Worlds combined with a related Left 4 Dead. To me it looks very cool but we will just have to see what this game has to offer. I consider trying it before I buy it.
Will the real X-Com please stand up?
This may have the same name, but it is not the traditional X-Com we all know and love. Check out FIRAXIS and their upcoming title X-Com Enemy Unknown.... it stays true to the X-Com lineage. That being said, this "X-Com" game still looks like fun; I will give it a try.
There are 2 games called xcom
For some reason 2 different companies are both making new games called XCOM. This is the FPS version of the game which looks semi interesting but they are indeed remaking the original TURN BASED Strategy version as well. Go to gameinformer.com The strategy version is the February 2012 cover story, it also has a fall 2012 release date and i expect that us real XCOM fans wil much prefer a modernized reimagining of the original game, which will be called XCOM: Enemy Unknown, not just XCOM which is the FPS.
This game may look good but the gameplay just doesn't work. They use Mass Effect style gameplay but in first-person so its harder to aim your actual skills. Its also a squad based shooter which again doesn't work well in first person. From what I've seen of the gameplay the "aliens" are interesting to look at, but there is little variety all you fight are leeches that infect humans, shapeshifting cyborgs that use guns for some reason, and shape-shifting satellites that fire surprisingly small but destructive lasers. Chances are the only people who are going to buy this game, are people who have no idea that XCOM is actually a series of RPG's on the PC, now being turned into an FPS.
Its gonna be good
This looks good. Its being made by 2k, who generally make good games. The trailer potrayed it as kind of creepy, but in the zombies kind-of-way, where it freaks you out, but then you shoot the zombie and everything's okay. The xcom series has responded well with critics and audiences. Let's hope 2k can carry on this tradition.
