I am curious. The only one I recongize from the old boards is SAS, but perhaps there are some lurkers around here...

Btw, I dont know much about multiplayer, but it will be fun to play you guys!
Let's go

UFO Defense is the one of very few games that are permanently on my boards list. The only other one I will probably never remove is Civ V, but I'm hoping EU is good enough for me to want to frequent the boards until the end of time.
If you can read this, you are literate.

UFO defense and TFTD. UFO defense was quite easy, but oh boy... TFTD is a nightmare. I curse you lobstermen!

Vet from the boards? I don't think I ever went on the xcom boards here.

I have played the original religiously though and then moved onto the lovely UFO:ET, a very good homage imo.

When I was playing TFTD a lot, the internet was barely functional, let alone popular. : /

Yup, been playing X-COM since it came out in the 90's, and still playing it to this day.

I personally perfer TFTD though, since the maps are larger, its much harder and requires a more diverse team setup than UFO Defense.

ie: You can't just rush Heavy Plasmas and win the game.

Used to save-scum a lot, but I only play it in Iron Man mode now.
Actually, since Wedge Antilles > Carriers, and Carriers = Instant win, then it should be Wedge Antilles > Instant win. He's just that good XD -PsionicDude

I only got into X-Com in the steam era. Still one of my favourite games now - steam says I've played it for 131 hours. I must like it.
Going to Saskatoon to catch an all ages Ahnabith Gish show for 15 Canadian dollars. Maybe I'll get a wrist band so I can drink a refreshing Molson's - Orca

Well, back when I played X-COM I don't remember if I even came to these boards (or if they existed). Maybe I was, but that was some 20 years ago.
I'm glad your opinion differs from mine. What a boring place this world would be if it didn't.
