I’m pretty excited about the new X-Com game X-Com: Enemy Unknown, and the laudatory quotes and facts in this trailer certainly indicate that it’s going to be a great time…but is it a turn-based strategy game? I mean, I think it is. If it’s an X-Com game, it damn well should be. But this trailer sure doesn’t look like it. The game in this video looks like a shooter, and while I love me a good shooter, that’s never been what X-Com is about. Either way, I’ll definitely be looking into this game, but the genre that it fits into will puzzle me until I see more.
X-Com: Enemy Unknown comes out today! October 9, 2012.
