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.

Finally getting around to cataloging all the intergalactic-level augments I want to use for post-game Tyrant killing in XCX. The grind feels more substantial than Monster Hunter but then again there are no four-story-high monsters in MH.

So due to things at my job picking up and bunch of real life stuff, I don't think I'll be able to give my Waifu Wars blog the love and attention it needs. Still, I don't think I need to remind you guys who best waifu is, but just in case you forgot.

For the next Assassin's Creed, they should completely overhaul the gameplay and base it on the latest Splinter Cells. Stealth, climbing and action would all be massively improved that way.

When does Undertale get "Interesting"? Played for 2-3 hours, having fun, but failing to see what it does that's so utterly amazing.
