Regarding the tangential X-Com bitching, the catch there is that all of those games have been shit since Terror from the Deep. Even TftD wasn't super awesome so the original is really the only purely excellent game in the whole series! Enforcer and Interceptor were already shooters and not so great. Maybe the new game will at least be better than those. Anyway, there have been a ton of X-Com tact-strat clones so go get your fix there if the DOS games aren't doing it for you anymore.

The hell? Apocalypse was awesome, and very innovative for its time. Seeing a popper turn the corner and hoping that your squaddie can shoot it with opportunity fire before fucks up half of your squad was every bit as intense as catching a glimpse of a chrysalid in the dark. And while Interceptor was a flight sim, it retained the setting, aliens, research and basebuilding aspects of traditional X-COM gameplay.

Enforcer, on the other hand, was an abomination.

Yeah, except they're all made by small shitty european developers, aren't turn based, and suck.
