I haven't paid that much attention to this game up to this point but this may have sold me. Plus the game comes out on my birthday so that can be my excuse to pick it up.

Posted by Bandit_Fox

Already pre-ordered it, and now I'm even more pumped up. I didn't realize that the game is over after 30 turns (Never played the original - was that in there?). I'm thinking this adds to the replay value a lot, in as much as it will make the completionist in me keep replaying to see everything in there.

Excited!

@FierceDeity: Well i thought it was awesome.

I watched the Quick L00k and played the dem0, l0ved it! :)

God, I hate reading the comments nowadays. People are so damn negative over every single game.

@rpmacedo: This bugs me too. They have mentioned in the past that for multiplatform games they tend to Quick Look the 360 version because it's easier to capture, but they often forget to mention when something is on the PS3. You see it a lot in XBLA Quick Looks as well.

I'm always a little nervous with Quick Look EX's but these guys were pretty cool.

Just pre-ordered it on Steam.......

This is the best game I played at Gamescom this year...

I like that I can just pause the video, hit command f, and find existing comments that echo my sentiments. "Hey, this guy sounds kind of like Dave. Yep, other folks noticed that too." "Hey, broken guys. Reminds me of Game Room. Yep, other people noticed."

Wow! havent paid much attention to this game but this just sold me

So I downloaded the XCOM demo on Steam, to find out what all the fuss is about.

The mouse controls are for the most part fine, except for the weird jitteriness - I suppose due to the grids on the ground. Also, the roofs on all buildings are somehow appearing and dissapearing randomly. That can probably be fixed.

Also, zooming by holding the middle muse button is kind of weird. I would do that a lot more, seemingly, than change floors, so maybe those controlls should be switched.

Maybe it's signs that this was developed primarily for controllers, I have no idea.

Otherwise, the game seems interesting.

@gladspooky: You think Firaxis don't know what a mouse is?

Uh.

What?

From this game? No, they don't. And yeah, I know they made the latest Civilization. Don't really care.

Stay classy, PC Master Race.

Yeah, I'm a snob because I like my mouse to act like a mouse. Sorry. I'm gonna go play text adventures with my X360 controller, now. It's the only way that feels natural for me.

They made EVERY Civ you dolt. Shut the fuck up.

Every single person on the staff was around in 1991? There's not some guy with the name "Firaxis" who personally makes all the games, you know? Or maybe you don't...

Please, tell me why Giantbomb, more often Ryan then everyone, always don't mention games that coming to PlayStation too? Is not the first game or the first time. This is one of big fails of this site and I can not understand why.

what are you talking about

Posted by dropabombonit

This game looks awesome but I will had to wait until Christmas to play it. My masters course is taking up all my time, only get a couple of free days

Edited by caseyg

Kind of buggy...and they should have swapped out Dave Snider for Navarro.

@Hansolol: I agree for the most part, though if it's with guys from say Harmonix or Double Fine then I think they're alright since those are so casual.

I was already more or less sold on this game a long while back. But the QL and the demo helped cement that decision. Fond memories of so many things going badly for the squad in the original.

It's a shame that ryan can't call them on their bullshit. Blatent bugs all over that demo.

Obviously he can't say anything because firaxis simply won't come back. ever. word would spread and then nobody would come in for ex's.

It's a shame, but necessary.

Even with bugs this looks pretty good.

Its not out, still two weeks for bug fixing.

These Firaxis seem really laid back. Or jetlagged. Or they got into the cube divider liquor.

"Both, control-wise, are very elegant and intuitive to use..." "It was fairly straight-forward to map onto the controller..." "I'm a mouse-and-keyboard guy..."

I really don't know how they can peddle this horseshit. It's a console game badly ported to PCs.

Have you played the demo pal? The UI is so easy to use a braindead aadvark could use it whilst drowning.

If you plug in a controller, sure.

No with a mouse.

I'm pretty sure the people who made this game have no idea what a mouse is.

Ryan talks about that console/PC gap as something the finally just recently arrived for this generation - is he batshit insane?

He means that as time goes on and new consoles don't arise, the disparity between PC quality and console quality becomes greater and greater (Sleeping Dogs is a good and recent example). Of course PC is always ahead of the game, but the further things go on and we're stuck with the technical limitations of 6-7 year old consoles, the advancements of PC stuff begins to stand out way than it did say 3 years ago or whatever.

Damn, totally forgot this is coming out relatively soon! Guild Wars 2 has made September fly right on by. Can't wait for this.

Posted by bobo6463

The game looks pretty awesome. Look forward to playing it when it comes out.

I wonder if this game is supposed to be taking place in the Sims world. During the base management part of the video, it looks like the currency they're using seems to be Simoleans (that crazy looking S symbol).

Posted by nate6858

This looks great, definitely going to pick it up. I've been itching for a good turn based strategy game.

Posted by lowestformofwit

I cannot wait. So glad they did this, screw the FPS version.
