Why X-COM Matters (To Me)

Oof, tough day. I totally get why people are upset, but once again it's worth waiting for a few more details before you decide the new XCOM is the end of all that is sacred. Maybe it will be, maybe it won't, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with a little honest hope. Today does, however, spell the end of a decade-long dream that someone would…

Enemy Known: XCOM’s Baaaaaaaaaack

Yeah, you heard me. X-COM, the game to end all games, is finally getting its long-rumoured remake/sequel. [Boom. Internet explodes.] Wahoo, basically. Yes, it is indeed a first-person shooter - it is extraordinarily sad to wave away X-COM's traditional genre, but c'mon, did you really think a AAA title in 2010 (or 11, or whenever it ends up being released) was going to be a…

Knights Of Cydonia: X-COM Gallery

Not at all inspired by John's visual homage to Day of the Tentacle, I find myself compelled to present this large roster of attractive images from a game I'm rather taken with. UFO: Enemy Unknown, also known as X-COM: UFO Defense, is an exciting new science-fiction tactical action game from British developers Mythos, due for release in October 1994. You'll need to make sure your…

All Of X-Com For Cheap

Just a quickie to mention this latest offer over on Steam: All of the Steam X-Com catalogue for $4.99 in the US, and £2.99 in the UK. It's reportedly only on sale for this weekend, although that's not made clear on the Steam site, and I suspect that's a pack that we might see cheap again in the future. That's some classic gaming for very…

All The X-COMs Are On Steam. Yes, Even Enforcer.

Hooray for olden games! The entire X-COM collection is now on Valve's digidownloadwebtertainment store. Terror From The Deep's been there for yonks, but we finally get the first game, Enemy Unknown/UFO Defence. Which is possibly my most beloved game of all time, and I proudly take personal responsibility for getting it into the top 10 of PC Gamer UK's Top 100 list for the last…

X-Comeback

I had it in my head that this had been properly confirmed ayyyyyyyyyges back, but apparently it's still stranded in rumourland. Furthermore, it's a rumour that seemingly had yet to reach everyone's ears, as evidenced by the internets suddenly talking about Bioshock creators Irrational 2k Boston reportedly working on a new X-COM game as though it's some sort of 'news.' Still, might as well give…

X-Complimentary

Ask me what my favourite game of all time is, and I'll probably say Planescape if I want to seem arch, TF2 if I want to seem contemporary, Peggle if I want to seem kooky, maybe Dungeon Keeper or AvP if I want to succumb to nostalgia. If I'm feeling balanced and honest though, there's a very strong chance I'd say UFO: Enemy Unknown, the…

Space Oddities

Spent last week reviewing UFO: Extraterrestrials for Eurogamer. Ended up being very mildly warm towards it, which was more than I was expecting. Because it's taking from such a well-conceived source - UFO: Enemy Unknown or X-COM: UFO Defence, depending on whether you're in Europe or the US*, it ends up often being highly entertaining because it's such a determined plagiarist. And God knows, everyone…
