That is a video version of the IGN link with two of the people who are on the team talking to someone. IGN just basically wrote it all down.


thanks for the link

Too bad the game is shallow and casual.

PC gaming is now shallow and casual, didn't you know?

Apparently. Skyrim and Xcom are just sooo deep and complex.

Skyrim is an ocean that is as deep as a wading pool.

Looks nice, I might pick it up during a sale. I've got 20 hours into the base game, played up to the end and just never did the final mission. But, hey, a year away from a game is a great way to help enjoy it again.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Wonder what Jake Soloman is up to. He was pretty much the face of the EU development team

This. What a slap in the face to the originals.

Blaming it on making it adaptable for consoles is no excuse, either. X-Com: UFO Defense was on PS1 and, aside from the atrocious load times, played just as well as it did on PC. The Geoscape could be a bit clunkier without a mouse, but it was perfectly playable. You could even get a mouse peripheral if you wanted to, but it was hardly a necessity.

The PS1 version even one upped the PC in some ways as it had the benefit of superior ambiance/music and cutscenes as well.

While the load times were indeed god awful, these additions helped make it a worthy port.


TFTD was released on PS1, too. As far as I know it was only released in England and is rare as hell.

It's not as complex or as balanced as the older games but it's fun. And that's why we play games, right?

I wouldn't even call the old games balanced. (Hi blaster launcher and manufacture abuse.) However, they did have depth and atmosphere. Personally I felt that's where the fun was.
