Default XCOM 2!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!

2k announced XCOM 2 today! Story is 20 years after the XCOM game (the remade one not the 1980s one :P) And the aliens have dominated the earth. You lead a resistance against the alien people and free mankind from their grip. However this time, you're in a mobile base instead of a standard underground hidden one, to avoid alien detection.

They also brought in Cobramen in this.

Apparently the original Xcom creator had plans to do a remake but ditched them when 2K announced theirs, haha.

Should be a fun sequel.

I liked the remake, didn't enjoy quite as much as the originals, but even then I'll admit a lot of the changes were for the better (god, the micromanaging in the original.... urrrggghhh). Reminds me I still need to play the expansion for the remake.

Looking forward to this.

Play The Long War and you'll get a good idea of what a XCOM/UFO hybrid can be.

I'm so stoked about this. Sucks that apparently (spoiler) you lost the war anyways.

Jake Solomon back directing? HELL YES.

I really think they did a damn good job on the remake (2K).

Very hyped to play part 2.

I also believe 2k did a good job with the remake, the expansion for it was good also. I'll pick the second one up for sure.

But I haven't even finished Terror from the Deep yet! Seriously, I'm looking forward to this. The last game was fun and this will hopefully stay as good. 2K has impressed me in general with what they publish.
