X-COM: UFO Defense
is now a freebie on GameTap
. This is a good way to give the game a try if you've been sleeping on it for the past 15 years or so, but act fast since the offer ends February 5th.
I actually signed on tonight fo rno other reason than topost that it may not be news but X:EU is on game tap...
so it's hardly news, and it's nolonger free ( it's part of the bundle of games you can play if you are a member.
Some news, I knew irt wouldn't be , so much as - I'd like to htink maybe more people wil be exposed to the game - many newer gamers, of course, missed it - and despite the graphics being, uh, dated -I htink the gameplay (especially of Apoc, which broke me of my turn-based only snobbery) isstill unequalled.
Here's to keeping our fingers crossed that renewed interest in the game - or, interest by a new generation, will lead to sufficient demand for a sequel.
And then we can cross our fingers that they don't murder the franchise by turning into an RTS, or another FPS.
