XCOM- Enemy Unknown Remake

My prayers have finally been answered, and I received news today that the greatest game ever, UFO: Enemy Unknown (otherwise and more commonly known as XCOM) is being remade with modern graphics.

Awesome, saw this new on my RSS the other day but was too busy to read up on it and completely forgot until now.

I hope it stays TRUE to the original gameplay and not like Apocalypse was.

Yes we live in a fast paced world but turn based is not as big a turn off as the marketing people would believe. The games name and legacy itself is a massive selling point and the reason why so many kicked up a fuss about the FPS being done.

Don't get optimistic. It'll probably be shit.

I mean, they've already managed to fuck up the universe with the shitfest that is the FPS bullshit they've made. Don't give any devs touching the XCOM universe (or similar games) any credit whatsoever until it's been released and proven to be better than UFO: Afterbirth and it's ever-worse sequels.

At least Syndicate actually looks like it takes place in the same universe.

I have high hopes for this. It's been advertised as being more or less identical to the original, with modern graphics. So the gameplay will be a touch different to work around having a 3d environment (so probably no distinct "squares" the way the original and TFTD had), but beyond that, it should be the classic turn-based goodness we all love.

I'm just glad that somebody finally went "Derp, we could make a lot of money remaking the exceptional classics. Somebody find out what we need to do to get the license for XCOM." Honestly, I thought the series started to go bad after TFTD-- I didn't even really care for Apocalypse, although it had its moments I suppose. It didn't feel like a full-on war the way the first two did. Interceptor, Enforcer (god, what a mess that was...), and the whole UFO series were utter crap, to boot... I tried playing UFO: Extraterrestrials and was like "What the fuck is this shit?"
