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)
Apparently it is video day here at NAHQ and I’m sharing yet another new video game trailer posted today, by Bioware this time. If you don’t want ANY spoilers (a-la Scott) then I recommend not watching this at all, otherwise enjoy this little segment of gorgeous combat footage. Although there are some weird cutaways that make me wonder about how much of “in game” this actually is.
