On reflection of my initial comment, I was only trying to be light hearted.

Yes, but if it really would be TFTD remake, wouldn't you jump for joy then?

DISCLAIMER : I'M CURRENTLY USING SUBJECTIVE MATTER AND IS OPINIONATED

Correct me if I'm wrong, (I'm not) but is there any animal class besides mammals that have tits (and by "tits" I mean milk producing organs)? Reptiles, Fish and Amphibians lay eggs. So snakes with mammalian breast is kind of a foolish unless the "Viper" is an alien human hybrid as well.

Would you "jump for joy" if they remade TFTD? Uh yeah dude, with the technology we have today in games an underwater variant would be awesome. The physics alone would be incredible. Besides, when are you going to see Tasoths, Lobstermen, Tentaculats and Deep Ones again? TFTD wasn't just a clone of the first game, it had it's own perks. The majority of aliens alone were inspired by HP Lovecraft, a storyline that was plausible and if it wasn't for TFTD I wouldn't even be here typing. It was the first X-COM game I played and the reason I feel in love with the series.

Bar none, Apocalypse was IMO the best of the series. I remember sitting down as a kid reading Computer Gaming World magazine and staring down at the pictures and was awed by how cool the armor looked, the fact I got to defend against aliens trying to control an entire city. The one photo that I remember the most is a group of 4 X-COM agents being blown up by a popper. I seem to be speaking for myself and a little bit for NKF but the fact is, yeah dude we don't mind if the reboot changes things here and there and stays true to the series. Then again, what if Firaxis decided to say "Hey guys, screw TBS, let's make a reboot of X-COM Enforcer." Would you be so quick to complain about changing directions if they made the series into a FPS?

They've made FPS XCOM called The Bureau and I enjoyed it. There was X-COM Alliance which was FPS. Sadly it didn't made it. So no, I wouldn't complain about FPS. And I liked Enforcer too.

The Bureau was a colossal failure, check Steam and Meta Critic for example. If you enjoyed it, good shit. Since Alliance was an abortion you can't use that as a tax deduction and Enforcer was created by Microprose but at that point it was owned by Hasbro. Meaning, none of the people involved made the original or even had anything to do with the company that made the classics. So let me get this straight, you make several statements saying that NKF would just be happy with a remake of TFTD, and that I do what I do...which is voice my constructive opinion and observations. Yet you have the audacity to deflect my comments while posting;

At least you can say, that each X-COM game is unique and played differently. What would be the point of having exactly same game over and over. You could argue that EU and TFTD are pretty much the same, but still you play TFTD and EU a bit differently.

It looks like I'm the only one who is open minded about how they've changed the story and everything. Does every reboot must follow the original? Stop living in the past.


At this point I'm just Posted Image maybe...just maybe after enough times of bashing my skull into a brick wall, I'll use your logic.

Well, I don't like to judge aliens by Earthly standards. Snake with tits.. Niiice. ;) Anyway, if I would mind anything, it would be that aliens look so Earthly.

I guess whatever path the evolution on a distant planet takes, there would be similarities to life on Earth at least as far as the visuals go, but XCOM could take aliens further into alien. The originals were pretty bad as far as having a vision (imagination) of life on other planets goes. IMO. XCOM did go a bit further, but there is plenty left to go.

On another front, I liked Apoc the most, too. But mostly because the ability to play in RT, which enabled the player to play out a battle much, MUCH faster.

Well, it was said that some of the fetures were exaggerated for the purpose of the demo, this one was one of them. Such a "sorry, it happens all at once and you are unable to do anything" thing is definitely annoying. I blame the aliens.

This kind of mods is definitely to be expected, though I'm sure copying from Aftermath is not. But this is a simple one. Modders always do things I never expected and to the extent that seems reserved for professionals. Well, some of them are professionals. Modders that we're lucky enough to come around SC are some of the most dedicated. Things that Okim, Tycho and Blunterll (sorry if I missed someone) are doing are incredible and demanded an enormous amount of work and time. We should really get them into XCOM2. With these, "native", guys even Aftermath skins are not excluded. :D

Hobbes, I forgot about you, I apologize.

I'm glad an individual like Joe can be known so well to be on a semi-equal footing as large review sites. He is the only one who was very upfront with the shortcomings of games, otherwise incredibly uniformly praised.
