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)
The Nintendo 3DS may not be selling all that well… yet. These new Resident Evil: Revelation screens and trailer prove that there is a whole lot of horsepower under the hood of that little dust collecting Nintendo machine. The Nintendo 3DS is sadly underrepresented in the “new” software department, unless of course you love playing Pilot Wings for hours on end. I for one am elated to see such an amazing looking title from Capcom on the 3DS (heck it may even motivate me enough to buy one of the little-guys). Capcom gave us a whole bunch of goodies to share with you all today, the best of which is a pretty spectacular trailer currently being shown at Gamescom. It appears as though the narrative will be split between Chris and Jill, each acting with new B.S.A.A. partners. We’re really loving the arctic environments and fuzzy winter clothing! Enjoy!
