Spoooooky. Might have to give this a try.
Hopefully this turns out good.
I will buy this.
So, UFO: Afterlight was on steam sale the other day, picked it up. It's a good holdover till this comes out if you like this kind of game, played 4 hours of it last night without realizing it. Character models look kinda similar too.
Just hope they release it soon =)
Know what they should talk about in the next promotional video, a release date. I am so down to play this!
The art and design of the the aliens are different. However its the gameplay that counts. Cant wait!
My most anticipated title of 2013. I'd buy a $150 collector's edition right now, if they let me into an early beta build :)
I was waiting for something to pop out behind him while he was talking.
Nice mouse cursor at the bottom of the screen.
Their UI dude/lady must have one hell of a task ahead of them. After playing a bit of Jagged Alliance: Back in Action for a bit, I remembered how I hate fighting with UI. It felt clunky and a bit dated to me.
"Let me hold in the mouse wheel to turn the camera, go to this screen to choose this weapon, now pause it with space bar, go to this screen to order these two to fire at the same time........execute........no, no, pause, grenade thrown! Pause, change stance to run, move..."
Leave it too complex and menu intensive, and they blow it. Oversimplify, and you nerf your own game. I'd like to see their UI people interviewed. Tough task that I'd like to know how they map to PS3 and 360 controllers. How bad will your menu screens interrupt gameplay, and does it look like I can concentrate on the strategy rather than the interface?
I don't even know anything about Persona 4 but this looks slick.
Twilight imperium on thier shelf! This is a good sign...
Man, it's gonna be interesting to see if this XCOM sells better or if the 2K Marin-developed FPS sells better. If 2K Marin's does better, it'll suck; stupid Xbox Live-meatheads only interested in shooters...
Oooooh, creepy music. I aproove. But from the screenshots released so far the game looks to have a bit of a cartoony artstyle, so not sure how they will manage to make aliens look creepy with that.
This is pretty much the winner here.
Pants officially shat.
I am far more interested in this game than the X-COM FPS that is coming out
This was a really poorly made video.
That being said, I'm quite excited about the game.
sat in on their demo at PAX last month, game seemed pretty cool. i never really got into the original but it seems Firaxis is building a legitimate game regardless of whether or not you have. they wouldn't reveal a whole lot of info on the game other than what was demoed but they did say there would be some rather difficult decisions to be made.
oh and i got a "vigilo confido" patch upon exiting :)
That mouse cursor at the end looks like a mistake.
Ooh... that piano... makes me feel like I've got sectoids standing behind me.
One of my most anticipated releases.
Teddy scared my cat.
Edit-WTF! How did ah end up here???
I have no idea what this game is
This looks like the best game ever.
mouse pointer on the screen at the end really freaked me out!
Missed opportunity to photoshop in a UFO over the studio.
I'm pretty sure I read that Oct 2 is the realease date, but I might be wrong. Anyway it is in the fall 2012, so you won't have to wait that long :)
That music. Ngh.
Really looking forward to this.
@SharkMan: ya i didnt notice that till you pointed it out. pretty weird
I fear this game will fall in the same trap as every other revival / re- imagination of old classics; being dumbed down and too easy. The original is one of my all-ttime favorites. DO NOT MESS THIS UP FIRAXIS!
