Episode 4 – X-ComMay 11, 2012
Hey there Blockers!
Welcome to episode 4. This time we’re looking at our first turn-based strategy game series, X-Com.
To start, the news: Two Kickstarter projects that have come out since the last show. The first one belongs to Jane Jensen, of Gabriel Knight fame. The second is huge news for me as it’s being put on by the creators of Space Quest! Check it out, it’s looking pretty cool. I update everyone on the DOS gaming box project and finally we listen to a voicemail about last show’s topic, SimCity.
Then, the main topic: 1994’s X-Com: UFO Defense (a.k.a. UFO: Enemy Unknown). We cover all the usual suspects for this unique game, story, gameplay, graphics/sound, development story and some opinions about the first game and the series in general.
Hope you all enjoy!
Next week, a much-demanded topic: Space Quest!
