    I'm gonna make my own XCOM with blackjack and hookers! And sell it to EGS for guaranteed profit in case it turns out bad!

    This latest build is starting to look quite different from the Firaxis X-com series.
    You aren't actually fighting off an alien invasion.

    Seems several asteroids have hit earth, and its been consumed by some organism that mutates stuffs.
    Overall, not bad. Do like you can zoom in and aim at body sections.

    So you’re not fighting off aliens, just space mutants which look like 90’s-era 40k Tyrannids.

    Huge distinction, that.

    Legally it is sufficient.

    I have played most backer versions, and from version 5 I put in a lot of time.
    Game is very good. I hope what we got was not the complete version, because I thought the research department was lacking stuff to research.
    Found few guns and armors to unlock.

    Combat is good, much better than the 2 actions per turn system we have seen in the firaxis games.
    AI could be more ruthless, they are not idle but could focus fire a bit more.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    I want to see a lot of reviews and videos of this before I buy it.

    If it was allowed I'd have called my firstborn son Xcom.
    Sooo... I doubt this will be for me if it diverges of the XCOM core I expect and love.

    It's a different type of alien invasion.
    Doubt we have gotten to see the end game beasties yet.
    But in the beginning at least, what you encounter is infected humans, thats turned into monsters/aliens.

    Oh my. This does not look good.

    Beaglerush plays or rather rants 4 solid hours about every aspect of PP he hates.
    Quite entertaining.
