X-Com: Enemy Unknown

Not actual real life games, but things that could one day become games.

X-Com: Enemy Unknown

Not so much a co-op game but does have skirmish style 1v1 multi-player. Looks like it's going to be a very well done update of the original. I'll be picking this up for sure. Who else is down for some X-Com goodness?

oh my yes

They certainly made positive changes to the tactical without changing the flavor. I'm not sure how I feel about the strategic changes yet. I'll know when I get it though.

Seriously all I've done now for the last 3 days is watch videos of this game. October 9th can't come soon enough. Will be getting the PC version myself if I had a 360 this might have been my 1st ever double purchase.

I picked this up a couple weeks a go and started playing it. I am just plugging through normal mode right now but it has been a fun game so far. I definately like it better than the second XCOM game.
