    UFO Alien Invasion is doing really well, although there's still no destructible environment, except glass windows.

    I loaded an old save, I have a secondary base in Asia with an interceptor, and it's out of Stingray missiles. There's only the interceptor with cannon rounds and Stingray missiles as stock in the whole base. However, no matter what, the stingray missiles won't get rearmed in my interceptor, and when I try to select armament for my interceptor they don't even appear.

    Could I just have hit a bug? If so, what version should I pick to nix as many of those annoying bugs as possible?

    I'm afraid that "an old save" just won't do it for a game constantly in development.

    The latest. Duh.
    The project also has neat bugtracker, so you might wanna post your problems there.

    So it's a Mass Effect clone now? Actually that one screenshot there reminds me of Ghostbusters.

    Hmm.

    I definitely don't get any "general XCOM prequel vibe" from this one.

    They could have saved themselves a lot of trouble by not making the retarded decision to drop the XCOM brand on it.
    Might even have turned out decent enough (unless it ended up as yet another cover-based console popamole shooter).

    I started a new game with 2.4 recently, last version I played before was 2.2.
    Tried one of the latest dev builds (2.5), but due to crashes/bugs I went back to 2.4.
    My biggest complaints so far are relatively slow research and high frequency of missions (esp. compared to research speed).
    Also Aliens tend to get an awful lot of reaction fire. Even when I want to shoot them, they often get to shoot at me first.
    Maps are probably a bit small, OTOH, given the large number of missions, that's maybe a good thing.
    That stuff aside it's not too bad. Quite playable and has some fun moments.
    Could still use polish in terms of balance and documentation.

    The Dwarf Fortress of xcom games? Has anybody played this? It looks so good that I may end up creaming my panties.

    My 6 year old son loves this game. I showed it to him last year and now he keeps busting my balls to keep playing while he watches.
    "Cuando vas a jugar el juego de los extraterrestres?? Yadda yadda over and over". And then you people say there's no hope.

    Yeah, are you sure you're not just training him to like cinematic absence of gameplay?

    Edit: why did my lack of portrait necessitate a change from the question-mark default pic to the codex troll pic? I deliberately left the portrait blank because I was a fan of the comic book character 'The Question'.

    It's not the Dwarf Fortress of XCom games until it attempts to simulate the separate random genetic evolution of the alien species played out over 50,000 years prior to the game start. Plus it would need lava.

    He does, but only the missions and only those during daylight. He can barely read spanish let alone english so he can't play the base strategy stuff, and is scared of night missions, even with flares.
    Before I get psi skills, and we had to fight for real ( without disarming them first i mean), he does better than me sometimes, which is a little embarrasing.

    Of course, you're right. It would all just be too awesome and bring about the destruction of civilization.

    The latest mod has lava and a dwarf named Urist McScorch who uses a magma cannon of his own design, if that counts for anything.

    I also posted this in the Squad level tactical thread but OpenXcom has just released version 0.9 which is supposedly fully playable. It's an engine for UFO: Enemy Unknown (X-Com: UFO Defense in USA)
