XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of my favorite games of 2012, and a year later, I enjoyed its iOS port all the same. It was a wonderful way to play it on the go, and considering the fact that it was basically the full game, it wa...

I dream of XCOM. I have fever dreams where I debate using my assault soldier’s Run and Gun ability to flank an alien or play it safe and stay behind cover. I wish I was kidding or being hyperbolic, but I’m not....



In a little over a week, Firaxis's XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be hitting stores, and last week, we had a couple of the devs come by the office to play some multiplayer.

In the original X-COM titles, the loss of a squad member would always cut me up. Those wee, heavily armed men and women were under my care, and I'd be damned if I was going to let some alien scum end their lives. I'm glad to...



There is a reason why strategy and adventure games faded away in the late '90s. It's the same reason why publishers are bringing franchises back and hamfisting them into more popular genres. It's about money. We used to call ...

When XCOM: Enemy Unknown was revealed earlier this year, series fans seemed to get behind this re-imagining. Most of them, anyway. Change is scary -- I get it. Sure, there are some changes involved when updating a 20-year old title, and even more on top of that when you consider that the title is also coming to consoles. But as I saw in our first hands-on preview with the game, change can be good.



To go along with our first hands-on preview of XCOM: Enemy Unknown we have details on a launch preorder bonus and a special PC edition of the game.  When the game launches later this fall, a launch bonus will be availabl...
