News Comments > XCOM: Enemy Unknown Video Diary

I've pretty much lost intereest in this game now. All I want is X-Com updated for today's computer. Removing things they find "tedious", multi-platform release, limited squad size, adding features that give the game a more action-oriented feel to appeal more to the ADD console kiddies...

All I want is an updated X-Com. I don't care how little it costs you to do it, I'll pay full price for the thing. I don't want you REIMAGINING the game like some other developers have tried. I don't trust that the changes and "improvements" you will make won't change the game into something decidedly unX-Com. I don't care if you were fans of the original. Those jackholes who reimagined it as a FPS also claimed to be fans of the original. I don't trust you to not f*ck up the interface in consideration of consoles.

Aww, f*ck it. I'll just fire up the original again. Maybe someone will update Incubation someday.

"Very early on in the process we had some people who argued that we should not make the game isometric, that it would be better technology, more modern, if we made a third or first-person game," said Wilson.

You gotta be shitting me.

HL2 and that series in general (and I know I'm going to get jumped on for this) is one of the most overrated titles ever imo. Portal sucked, Counterstrike sucks, L4D sucks. Much like Blizzard, Valve is right up there in regards to most overrated developers in the industry.

...It's a digital distro system, just like D2D, or Origin, or Impulse etc. That's all it is.

Yeah, ok.

Sooo... when is Half-Life 3 coming out? Personally, I don't care how cool it is to work there. Valve, in my world, is the company who has yet to finish Half-Life. How about hiring some peeps who want to work on that?

If people didn't want to play it then it wouldn't have been pirated like crazy.

You can say people didn't want to pay for it, but undoubtedly if piracy was not an option then sales would have been better. While we can debate all day what portion of pirates would otherwise buy a game (low), I don't think anyone would argue none would.
If a game is pirated a million times I think it's safe to say that's 100,000 lost sales. Bulletstorm was pirated more than a million times.

Where do you get THOSE numbers? I don't think it's even close to 10%. And I think the vast majority of those who did pirate it didn't play it for long, and were thankful they didn't waste $40. Companies who rely on day one sales for games they know are crap are just as dishonest as pirates. They want as many people buying their non-refundable game before word gets out how fucking bad it is. It was a shitty console port, period.

Make good PC games, sell lots of PC games. Make shitty, consolized PC games, sell few PC games.

please employ some artists this time round - No.1 reason i'm not playing minecraft is that it feels like i'm getting poked in the eyes with lego blocks, cause the pixels are that freakin' huge.
Some people just don't get it. Amazing to me that people bitch about the "graphics" in frickin' Minecraft.

I never played this back in the day but I hope this will be an HD update to the older game, that would be fun to play it and see what all the fuss was about.

@Tumbler, here is your chance to check it out for almost no cost....
Not a bad deal for 6 classic games

Great link! Thanks! I already own them all, but... I don't know... 5 bucks for 6 great games! Couldn't resist.

LOL! Yet ANOTHER PC game that is a definitive NO BUY simply because of the ridiculous and completely unnecessary requirement of online-only. Fuck you (again), EA! Actually, all EA games are a no-buy nowadays. When the FUCK did Sim City become a fucking multiplayer game!?! To answer ASeven.. apparently there ISN'T a game publishers won't fucking ruin.

Ubisoft just gets funnier and funnier with every release. Why do you even bother, Ubisoft? Every "PC game" you release is a bigger joke than the previous one. Well, it makes ME laugh, anyway.

I avoid third-person shooters like the plague. I've skipped over some popular titles for this singular reason. It's first-person or bust godamnit!

Same here. Looks like a cool story/world, but console shooters are simply shitty PC shooters. I've got a gaming mouse and 104 keys. Third-person, over-the-shoulder, sticky cover-system... ugh. Not for me, anyway.
