Seeing footage of XCOM: Enemy Unknown at this year’s PAX: East quickly reminded me how much I longed for the glory days of well executed turn based strategy. Not only did the XCOM look incredible, it also seemed to mysteriously capture the tone and pedigree of the original title. If you’re anything like myself and have been waiting for a proper release day for this long anticipated title, we’ve got great news, the wait is almost over! XCOM is set to invade North America on October 9th 2012 for both 360 and PC. (click for more info)
Kudos to to 1UP for nabbing the trailer for the much anticipated Modern Warfare 3. If you can’t wait for the NBA playoff game tonight, you can take a look at the new trailer HERE, or wait until we have the capacity to post it. I have to admit that I’m totally curious how Modern Warfare 3 (Infinity Ward) will fare with the bulk of its creative team now working for Respawn: Entertainment. The trailer makes the game look like a whole lot of fun, but has the franchise lost its “soul“? We will have to wait and see.
Who is the gravely Cobra Commander voice you’re hearing in this new trailer? “It doesn’t take the most powerful nations on Earth to create the next global conflict — just the will of a single man.” My money is Ghost, the hotshot operator from Soap’s old team who was burnt alive and left for dead. I’d be pretty pissed too.
