The Daily Hotness: X-Com is all shooty again (yay?!)

11:59 PM on 04.26.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Originally meant to be the flagship reboot with a side meal RTS, its fair to say the tables have turned on the once-FPS X-COM. The Bureau: X-COM Declassified is finally going to see the light of day at least, now as a tactical third-person shooter. August 20, 2013 is the date, so I'll start taking bets now on it getting delayed.  In all seriousness though, I'm actually looking forward to it. As what feels like one of the few people who really enjoyed Bioshock 2, I'm interested to see where 2K Marin is taking this one.

Today, Chris gets a look at the Rayman Challenges app on Wii U, Iwata speaks on the Wii U's earlier faults, and Valve provides incentives for CS: GO map makers. Microsoft is rumored to be giving publishers the option to have console DRM, Resident Evil: Revelations is going to be bringing out a demo soon, and defunct THQ still has its creditors after it.

So Macy's parade had that performance from "The Wiz" which made me realize I'd much rather have seen "The Wizard" where everyone is dancing around wearing power gloves. Come on Nintendo, THE TIME IS NOW!

Happy #Darksiders2 day-I mean Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

Happy Thanksgiving all! Load up on carbs and then get back to playing Fallout 4.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future
