XCOM FPS (The Bureau) about to be re-revealed, teasers sent out

#4
Even with the name change I expect disappointment. This game went through some major trouble...

It also didn't look great before.

Hopefully all these delays & shifts have resulted in a Sleeping Dogs-type miracle.

Mostly likely though, it'll be a decent tactical shooter with a unique visual flair.

I sorta remember rumours that this changed from an FPS to a squad-based TPS like SOCOM, I think? That would be preferable to an FPS, at least.

It'll definitely be interesting to finally see what's become of it.

I thought it looked awesome. Running a 60's style secret hideouts with scientists smoking and experimenting on weird tech seemed so cool. Combat also seemed fine. We got the real XCOM, so why hate on this?

The whole black goo thing looked dumb. Nt scary at all just dumb and kind of funny. If this teaser suggests they are still in then I don't know what they are doing...

The hate came before the real XCOM was announced. Given that the real XCOM came out and was awesome I think people would be up for the original game that was announced IMO. I am.

Called it. I'm curious to know if they fundamantaly changed the game for a reboot or if they just bothered slapping another name on it to keep Xcom ragefans away. I think it's a good move, Xcom did not need a shooter branch yet this game might have interesting things of his own.

Pretty much my thoughts on this game. Last year's Xcom was excellent and I like the themes of this shooter.

Still without luck

My thoughts exactly. The thing I'm wondering is how much they'll change because that 2011 demo was XCOM, just an fps. Board of global panic, squad of different agents, aliens. The style and look of everything was the interesting part of it for me. I just wonder if they'll keep it the same in terms of gameplay and label it something new, or rip out the xcomyness and make it too different. Hope it's the former.

I saw a theater demo of this game at E3 2011 and it was the third most promising thing I saw at E3 that year, right behind Bioshock Infinite and Prey 2.

I was honestly disappointed with the generic modern-day setting of last year's X-COM, because I was so into the old-school FBI feel of the first person shooter. I'm glad to see this is gonna finally come out. Hope it's decent.

I guess the biggest question on my mind right now is...

Is this going to be better than XCom: Enforcer?

I don't think "bad" was a descriptive enough term for that game. I considered it the "freebie" when I bought the entire X-Com pack on Steam back in the day... and still felt ripped off.

I expect the final product will be OK but rushed, and in the end we'll find out that this version of the game was only developed for a year or two at most.

As long as they keep the 60s setting I'm still interested. But I wonder if they just turn the game into third-person view or if there's been a lot more change.

I understand it's heavily stylized...but what the hell is "rebel girl" supposed to be?
A fine example of awful character design.

Like what you should put up on a projector in art schools and say "Now, students, this is what you don't do. Now that is out of the way, let's talk about what you should do.".

Hopefully this will be good.

I remember when the game first came out and it looked like bioshock lol. I really didn't have a problem with that...atleast we knew what we was going to get at that time.
