That Other XCOM Game Snuck Into E3

That Other XCOM Game Snuck Into E3

The folks over at Twitch have been streaming live gameplay demos from E3 all week. I know this, becuase every now and then over the course of the past few days I’d completely cut-off contact with my coworkers to enjoy a particularly compelling segment, like this one for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.

I’ve been intrigued ever since Evan spent 30 minutes with the game a while back. I love the original XCOM, but I am no tactical commander — I’m want to be in the line of fire. I also want to be in the 1960s. This is perfect.

Hit up Twitch for lots more live gameplay demos direct from E3 2013.

  • I love the original XCOM, but I am no tactical commander — I’m want to be in the line of fire. I also want to be in the 1960s. This is perfect.
    No-one who truly loves the original game could support this travesty of a non-canon rip off!

  • I actually find this kinda depressing, I really liked the look of what we saw two or three years ago, with the sentient goop and the black monolith and the like, and now it just looks like a more tactically focused Mass Effect.

    (I mean, it still looks fun, just… disappointingly bland.)

    Edit: I’d be so very happy if they proved me wrong and made something fantastic! I want more tactical games everywhere!
