XCOM Enemy Unknown
So I don't know if you peeps were aware but there is a game coming out called XCOM Enemy Unknown which is something that they have rebooted from the classic game which i loved back in the 90's playing even if i wasn't that great at it.
Just thought I would give you peeps a heads up Its coming out on October 12th. There is a Collectors edition (Artbook, sew on patch and some other stuff) aswell as a standard edition that comes with a preorder bonus.
As far as I am aware looks like Game will be selling the special edition as an exclusive.
I will be ordering the special edition i am so excited!!!
Just type in xcom in google and it will come up with the website, its an age restricted title so did not want to put a link up incase your at work etc but its the first hit.

I used to love Xcom - That game rocked -
Did did play terror from the deep- the underwater one?
I thought the third - the realtime xcom set in a city - apocalpyse ? I think it was called.

Just checked it out - looks awesome.
The gameplay on trailer 4 looks great as well - turn based with lots of cool camera angles .
Fingers crossed it will live up to the original!
So many developers have tried to remake and released bad glitchy titles.

There is another version, Xenonauts – Strategic Planetary Defence Simulator | Xenonauts – an indie spiritual successor to X-Com!
But I think this one is pretty much the same but slightly improved graphics and additions.
With the one your talking about though, 1 base only.. but does look really impressive, I will be getting it just not so sure about Xenonauts one - much more original though.

I remember watching a youtube commentary ages ago with the developer of xenonauts and got me excited because it was based off of X-COM, then some time later X-COM the FPS was being advertised and i was like uh.... (why would you do this to something i love!!!!) but afterwards they said there was 2 versions being created the latter being enemy unknown .

PC here, I find it much easier to play on a PC and switch to my other stuff without problem. Usually Window mode too
Just the normal version for me, probably wont get the Xenonauts one just yet and will see how this total full on remake is first.

Fantastic! I've been a big fan of UFO: Enemy Unknown (as it was known on the Amiga) for years!

I've had my Xbox copy of the new Xcom ordered for a while now and have been spreading the word around my friends.. if only so that I can try to kill them in multiplayer with Chysalids!.
Steam does a pretty good deal if you want to pick up the older games. I think it's £8.99 for Ufo: Enemy Unknown, Terror from the Deep, Apocalypse, Interceptor and Enforcer.
Ufo and TFTD both run via DosBox, which is installed and configured.
If you do look at running the old version of Ufo, I'd suggest looking at XcomUtil as well, which includes a fix for the Difficulty bug (i.e. when you load a saved game, the difficulty is set back to the lowest level)!

Just watched those videos on my 15 mins of lunch
Some pretty good touches they have done on the game, really will have to get it. Can really tell the difference between this version and Xenonauts. They seem to have added many different touches compared keeping it original like xeno. Still I might have to get both when i can.
