So Firaxis Games, maker of amazing strategy games such as Alpha Centauri
an the Civilization
series, is making a reimagining of one of the greatest PC games ever made, the original XCOM
. And no this is not that other XCOM
game where they decided that the best way to pay homage to the classic is to turn it into a FPS, like every other ****ing game being made these days, this is a bona fide, tactical, turn-based, squad-based strategy game like the original. Anyway the first gameplay/developer commentary video is out:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... uHHmTSDCvA
Now whenever a beloved classic gets "reimagined" I get scared that too much will be changed, the game will not be able to live up to the lofty standard set by the original, or that they'll simply **** it up. After having watched the video I was blown away. I pretty much popped wood. Holy ****, it looks like Firaxis is doing everything right! This new game may actually live up to the glorious standard of the original and be a worthy reimagining. Good lord I hope this game winds up being as good as it looks and sounds.
