According to this, there is a true successor to X-Com being made by Firaxis! The same guys that made Civilization 5. I fucking love this news! Civilization 5 is a game I'm sunk over 400 hours into.
Anyway, X-Com was a truly awesome game. I spent many hours playing it as a kid and I believe its gameplay would hold up today. Hopefully Firaxis doesn't change too much and only adds to the original formula and, of course, updates the graphics.
Holy crap I'm excited! I hope this comes out soon, but I want Firaxis to get this perfect. I'm so tired of the garbage-quality of games these days. Maybe developers are learning that fans are good to them if they are good to the fans.
