    I wonder if Firaxis is going to really show us the wonderful achievements of days to come - I'm thinking of things such as multi-floored buildings...

    It's no secret that Apocalypse is Jake Solomon's favorite.

    Logical. It would give them the perfect excuse to drop all this turn based nonsense and deliver a proper visceral experience.

    It is not Xcom without turn based. And the other non turn based xcom game did a lot worse.

    I would absolutely love a sort of Apocalypse reimagining with XCOMs engine. I'm joining the hype train

    Eh, I kinda wish they wouldn't go with grimdark '90s Megacity 1 stuff. I remember reading the plots for TftD and Apoc and being bummed out.

    X-Com has a corny optimistic Independence Day human assabiyah angle where all the old petty interests are put aside for the commonwealth, government is organized for human power and benefit. You have no narrative or gameplay concern with media or perception - there's no postmodern angle. Going from that to playing terrorists in They Live! world kinda ehhhhhhh

    Come on, you know that deep down you want a spiritual successor to x-com: enforcer just as much as the rest of us do. ;)

    Remember guise, this is Firaxis, where the viral campaign turns out to be more exciting than the actual game.

    Considering Firaxis started streaming Xcom weekly a while back, it is not at all hard to believe they intend to announce a sequel soonish.

    lets hope after the mediocre sales of XCOM on peasant consoles, they will make this PC exclusive, but those execs are not the brightest bunch i have seen... Still, there is hope i guess. Please make a better strategic layer this time and dont dumb the game further.

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
