Oh Daaaaaaaaamn, XCOM Trailer

Here’s what strikes me most about this new XCOM trailer: the game looks wacky. On purpose. It looks to go with an almost Telltale-like, or Double Fine-like, aesthetic (but not sense of humor). Or maybe I’m totally getting the wrong idea from this trailer. That is possible, since I’m sort of a dumbass. In fact, I’m starting to think I am totally reading this wrong, probably because I’ve already watched about 7,000 other game trailers this week and everything is kinda running together in my mind. Thankfully, you don’t have to take my word for anything; you can watch the trailer for yourself!

Meh. They shouldn’t be (ab)using the X-Com name for this title. Shameless marketing at its *cough* best *cough*.

I just peed myself a little, I absolutely love the older x-com games, if they can keep all the aspects of the original game in this one but adding a new flare with fps gameplay then I’m definitely down.
