    I don't know any of you guys remember the old X-COM series. That was my best game, ever.

    Anyway, apparently, a true successor has arisen and it's called UFO:extraterrestrials. It's out next month (or so they say). Can't wait to get my hands on it.

    I've played X-Com games since the early days
    there are some non canon games of the same lineage, UFO:Afterlight being the latest, pretty nice, a bit cartoony, but the same sort of gameplay and its very enjoyable

    this one looks very interesting
    I remember the last real X-Com game I played, it was probably X-Com Apocolypse, that was about 10 years ago! :)

    That's right, Phoenix. The original franchise goes way, way back. I loved them all, enemy unknown, terror from the deep, apocalyse.

    The developers of the new version are Chaos Concept and their official boards are over here:

    Everybody's pretty excited.

    EDIT: Loved Altar's UFO: Aftermath, Aftershock and Afterlight. But X-COM will always be my one true love.
