    Anyone else ever play the original X-Com UFO Defense/Enemy Unknown? I love that game, and just got my dosbox together last week and am playing it now.

    Anyway, there's supposedly a (sort of) remake of the original game coming out in the next few weeks called UFO - Extraterrestrials. Anyone else following this release?

    How cool, I havn't heard about it...

    Love the original tho! [​IMG]

    EDIT:

    Okay looks somewhat like the other UFO-games... (as in, aftermath, afterburn (or whatever it is called))
    I want a X-com-ier one!

    After following this game for a while though, it looks like this one may hold fairly true to the original gameplay.

    oh okay!
    That's one thing the other's lacked... the research parts, and all.... I really liked researching all the things, and build a base....

    not just wait for ages for one autopsy, or so... damn... this makes me want to download x-com again! [​IMG]

    abandonwares yay!

    researching and stealing alien technology was most of the fun i thought. damn i was such a big xcom geek, getting 3 other of my friends hooked on it.

    gonna look into it, thanks
