DTOID Extra: XCOM Enemy Unknown at E3 2012

1:45 PM on 06.28.2012 // Max Scoville



I realize that E3 was almost a month ago, but we're still cutting together the videos we shot for The Destructoid Show. This one (which, ironically enough, was the first video I did from the show floor) features me and that lovable scamp Anthony Carboni chatting about XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

"Turn-based" and "strategy" are two terms that usually make me zone out and start staring out the window out of boredom, but I'm really curious about XCOM. I think it's the action figure/playset aesthetic that the game's got going on. It seems more like playing G.I. Joes in my backyard than getting stuck in a seven-hour game of RISK.

Brett put up his preview of it a few weeks back, and you should go check that out too.
