Declassified Edit:

Seems completely competent, but nothing more than that. Maybe I'll pick it up when it is a bit cheaper.

Well played.

Indeed.

As for the game though, it is kinda rough in places. But the gameplay is great, and actually kinda hard when played on hard.

8/10 from me

That box art looks really weird. Most of it is redacted. Shouldn't you have it mostly be a picture, with a few black lines where certain words were redacted? It just looks like he's infected with symbiotes.

If it's half the game that XCOM: Enemy Unknown was, I'm in. If it's XCOM: Mass Effect, also pretty excited.

If it's not great, well, there are gonna be Steam sales eventually.

Oh Fuck.....I'm Nils....does this mean I am dead and don't even know it? My name is so rare to see it startled the shit out of me.

Crashing the operations interface is the most terrifying weapon in the Alien arsenal.

Plan 9 from XCOM

The PhysX particles effect really eats the framerate on my 580. Works fine with it off though. And I am pretty sure toggling that is what was asking them to restart the game in order for the change to take effect.

Kind of love the terrible lip-syncing and the way dudes stand there during dialogue - awful but also kind of hilarious/loveable. Also, I love dialogue wheels.

This Quicklook needed Agent Ryan Davis bradly?

This is the first I've seen of The Bureau and it looks very Mass Effect-ish and man I want NOTHING to do with this game.

There's a reason why engineers use shotguns:

  • Engineers are nerds
  • Nerds wear glasses
  • With bad eyesight comes bad aim
  • You don't have to aim with a shotgun

Boom!

*EDIT*

Q: @vinny at 23:10 "Does it seem like you are getting a damage boost for hitting them in the head?"

A: No, you want to hit them in the armpits to get the result you are looking for.

Love the visual look of the game but the actual gameplay looks rough as it's not turn based like the other X-com games.

Edited by HiCZoK

That is on 360 right ? Oh god... I am gaming on pc since 2013 started and have not touched my 360 since. Still keeping it for older exclusives I like... but man... that framerate !

edit: wait. They just said its pc

Posted by AlexanderSheen

We got it, the framerate is bad! Good Lord!

Edited by bunkerbuster05

I love everything about this game. It's so aesthetically pleasing, it's practically made for me. Shame it's not getting great reviews :/. I'll give it a rent.

Can I romance the old-timer?

Mass Effect without the RP? No thanks.

Boom!

You do have to aim a shotgun though. The real reason engineers use shotguns is because shotguns have a wide variety of ammunition that are used for a bunch of different things.

I was really interested in this game, too bad it didn't turn out as great as it could have. I still have a free copy of xcom i got with bioshock infinite I haven't played yet.

Edited by RonGalaxy

Those character models look really great... Except for the lip animation

Edited by xite

Depending on how well it's implemented and optimized, PhysX can have a huge impact on framerate, Brad. Seems like that could've been the issue and Jeff was probably right that you needed to restart.

Posted by Scampbell

Seems cool, though I still wish they had gone with X-Files semi horror angle.

For a game with a troubled development to say the least, it has turned out pretty great.

Edited by mlarrabee

Now if only it had Saints Row IV's "romance" mechanics.

"Hey, Old-timer, let's f***."

EDIT: @brad, that VO actor is Dave Fennoy, the man who did Gabriel Tosh as well as Lee Everett. (I'm very certain, anyway. It's not on his IMDB credits yet.)

Posted by StoffInator

This game reminds me of LA Noire and Resistance 2.

Edited by Zacagawea

I wish this had turned out good :(

Posted by MechaMarshmallow

That AI really looks like something special.

Edited by Dezztroy

I find it funny how space-travelling aliens are still using cannon-based AAA.

It's not the Physx, it's the Screen Space Reflections which are super taxing apparently. Lots of people online complaining that this one settings is bogging things down.

Edited by HMacyFan4eva

Man.

I really really loved XCom. I really really love hokey sci-fi government conspiracy X-Files/Men in Black stuff. And I especially love cheesy 50s/60s atomic age secret alien invasion Mars Attacks/Plan 9/Invaders from Mars/Destroy All Humans in middle America cold war paranoia stuff. All these elements on paper make this seem like it could be a perfect game for me.

Unfortunately it just looks super dull and awkward and boring. What a shame.

Also, Sputnik was 1957

@brad the frame rate could be because the game has it set to a frame limit of 60fps, but in the options menu you can change the fps limit. That won't fix the hitches that happen during saves though.

The performance sucks, but otherwise the game looked good. You know, if you don't send all three of your guys straight in front of a turret.

Posted by PhilipDuck

Game looks better than i thought, very similar to Mass Effect.. Also good thing Jeff and Vinny were there to teach Brad how to play video games.. :)

Posted by Sooty

Holy shit what a Mass Effect clone.

Posted by bhlaab

I have to warn you guys, I've heard this game has possibly the dumbest twist I've ever heard of near the end.

Edited by JoeBlank

Did anyone else think they got a Steam message at 2:23?

Brothers in XCOM: Road to Area 51

Edited by Rhaknar

im sure it wont matter for most people since the game will bomb badly, but what was causing the frame rate issues was Screen Space Reflections (which was the only thing brad didnt touch in options heh), aparently it just kills the frame rate for now until theres a patch or some new gfx drivers

Wanting nothing to do with a Mass Effect type game is crazy talk. That said, I heard this isn't a very good Mass Effect type game, so you're conclusion is still sound.

Edited by dr_mantas

This looks pretty good. Still think that it should stop completely or slow down WAY MORE when you're issuing commands. Mass Effect had it right.

Posted by ArtisanBreads

This is one Brad ass quick look that's for sure.

Price drop + 75% off, here I come...

I'll save my money for XCOM Enemy Within. :D

Posted by civid

Seems like a budget Mass Effect title, which is a shame, cause I was hoping for something a little more like the GRAW games or Rainbow Six: Vegas.

Edited by Archer88

I've never understood how someone could play a PC shooter, be it third person, first personal, tactical, whatever, and use a 360 controller instead of mouse and keyboard.

Posted by gamergutz

Looks like i wont be playing this until its free on PS+ (fingers crossed)
