    XCom 2 sounds kinda boring. All the other Xcom games had a second title

    Alien Unknown, Terror of the Deep, Classified etc

    Well, I mean, yay, but this isn't super super exciting. The teaser seemed more Bioshock, but in the end, it is what it is.

    Is there anything 3rd party that's coming out really exclusive these days? This might end up being a timed exclusive.

    Wow, I'm super psyched for this already, been hoping for a sequel for a long time.

    Heck yeah - I loved XCOM. Even more than Xenonauts, which got a bit stale in the end (and the ending kinda sucked).

    There is quite a bit of exclusive PC games, it's just games you don't care about so you think they do not exist.

    The exclusivity most likely has to do with the mod support, perhaps they are making it a dominant part of the game and/or their business model. Otherwise it really doesn't make much sense why would it be PC exclusive.

    Nice. I quite enjoyed XCOM Enemy Unknown, and the older XCOM games were pretty good, too.

    Looks pretty good.

    But will I be able to buy it without Steam?
    Edit: Noticed the presence of the PC DVD ROM icon and absence of a Steam icon.

    Nice, I loved EU and EW along with the classics.

    I can't help but wonder, what the hell happened? I'm sure my 20 max level assaults, 10 max level snipers, and the fleets of death machines were more than adequate to keep the world safe. Apparently the aliens have good PR.

    It could go either way since Enemy Unknown released for the PC and consoles at the same time. Perhaps the game sold much better on the PC so they don't consider it worth porting over to consoles this time. Either way, I can't imagine playing a turn-based strategy like XCOM with a controller.
