XCOM: Enemy Within trailer shows the Exalt faction

I've put 30 hours into XCOM: Enemy Unknown and I still suck at it. I'm losing soldiers left, right, and center but maybe that's the game's appeal. Still, I'm hankering for new enemies to fight so the upcoming Enemy Within lo...

BioShock's Burial at Sea focuses on small scale, stealth

The intriguing BioShock Infinite DLC Burial at Sea features a return to BioShock 1's Rapture, prior to its downfall. Also, it's film noir as heck. Chinatown with splicers. I'm all about this; I'm always ringing the "more noir...

XCOM: Enemy Within is MEC-ing me crazy
by Dale North

Being at gamescom has its perks, especially when it comes to having the first opportunity to play a newly announced game. Or in this case, a new expansion so big that it's essentially a new game.

2K officially announced expansion XCOM: Enemy Within last week. Slated for release on November 12, this expansion brings all kinds of fun new bits to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, including body modification, big ol' MECs, enemy counterparts called Mectoids, new resources, new maps, and much more. 

As I'm sure you'll understand, I made it a priority to get my strategy loving self in front of a demo machine at the show.

Review: XCOM: Enemy Unknown (iOS) photo
Review: XCOM: Enemy Unknown (iOS)
by Chris Carter

I was pretty blown away by Firaxis Games' re-imagining of the X-COM universe last year in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. So blown away in fact that it was my second choice for Game of the Year -- and this is coming from a fan of the '90s series.

I loved the emotional thrill of deciding the fate of the world, and living with the sorrow of war, defeat, and death -- it comes naturally in Enemy Unknown, and is all the better for it. Pretty much all of that translates into iOS, surprisingly.
