The year was 1994 and I was sitting at my computer covered in Dorito crumbs and shattered dreams. After hours of playing XCOM, my entire squad of super soldiers had met their end due to a simple mis-click. Since death in XCOM was permanent, it was time to reload and try again… and again. XCOM: UFO Defense was one of my favorite strategy titles of all time, despite it’s brutal difficulty. For nearly twenty years I’ve been waiting for a proper sequel, and I’m very happy to say that XCOM: Enemy Unknown is that title.

Waaaitt – Hodup, did you say bonus playable character?
I sure did, by simply preordering the game you get access to “The Exiled Prince: Sebastian”. I for one have loved all of Bioware’s DLC characters: Shale, Kasumi and Zaeed. And truth be told, I went to the store today and pre-ordered two copies. One copy for myself, and one for Dragon Age addicted wife Christinabot.

Do you guys like the marketing strategy of “giving away” free content to people that pre-order? Or do you feel it’s an underhanded way of punishing people that don’t pre-order? – Thanks to Derek for the heads up.
