    I’m cringing a little bit thinking about all the games sites that are gonna run with “Oktoberfest: X-Com YadaYada”.

    But still… It is gonna be the Oktoberfest of games.

    Wtf, Firaxis and 2K RUINING the XCOM franchise. XCOM should be an FPS not this strategy bullshit. At least don’t put the XCOM name on it if it’s not an FPS!!!

    Added the trailer in. It’s still processing, so don’t shout at me immediately if it’s not there right away.

    Actually “XCOM: UFO Defense” is the title of the very first game in the franchise on some markets, and that was a strategy game.

    That’s weird. The other name was “UFO: Enemy Unknown”. Anyone noticed the pattern?

    If this game is half as good as X-COM: UFO Defense it might just be my GOTY, I have my doubts tho.
