just started this on xbox recently. Really enjoying it. Confused on a few things, anyone know what happens when the aliens bar thing fills up when you are looking at the map?

Performance on consoles was shit, I can't imagine it'll be better here. Great game though. and the expansion really does add a ton.

I played XCOM a ton on iPad, and really wish the sequel came out too. Well, this is cool - hopefully it has cross save support.

Played the original on the Vita, so I'm definitely down for the sequel on Switch.

These turn based games having shitty frame rates really doesn't make a lot of difference to the experience, while portability is a huge plus point.

a cave outside of Whoville.
I'm curious about general performance, too. I wonder if this will rival the Vita port or Enemy Unknown. That game took minutes to load and the framerate dropped to the teens all the time.

I need to give this franchise another chance.
Got frustrated in the original on some fairly early mission where they introduced some new aliens that spotted you from like the other side of the map, had a massive movement range and were hard to kill. Tried it a few times and couldn't figure out how to beat them and then just moved on to something else.

I always wanted to play it on consoles but I was too afraid of the state of the game.
People always talk about crashes, losing progress.

If you are interested in aliens, enjoy turn-based tactical strategy gameplay and a challenging difficulty, XCOM is a great series to get into. I think it's best played on the PC but hopefully it runs well enough on the Switch.

This is going to be interesting, base PS4 and XONE are struggling to run this game in decent fps, especially with the War of the Chosen expansion (fyi I've finished the base campaign multiple times and WotC once). Not to mention you get 3-4 minute loading times later in the campaign.

Hmm , the PC version is rough in places and I have quite a powerful machine, Console may be worse but I'm kinda looking forward to the switch version to see how ti runs
