Wonder if this will suffer the same fate as Syndicate? Stubborn fans, the game was surprisingly good.

Prepares for the haters.

I liked the art style when it was revealed. It felt very colorful actually. I really hope they kept that art style.

Blame the haters as we all know they are the only reason that games fail.

It's never because a game is bad. It's always the haters' fault.

I'll pick it up if it includes a co-op mode.

Because facing something as terrifying as the Chryssalids alongside a few friends would be amazing.

4-8 player co-op, open ended maps with varied objectives and punishing difficulty, capturing the same tension as the strategy games, now that would be awesome.

Not a huge fan of the original design though. The 50s setting doesn't really scream "XCOM" to me. While I'm sure it could be a good game, I'd personally prefer that under a different name.

The only reason the Chryssalids were terrifying was because it was a turn based game. They won't be so interesting in real-time.

You know, whenever a poster uses the terms "b**** and whine" or "piss and moan" or something similar, I simply ignore the entire post.
