Re: Phoenix Point - From X-COM creator
I was going to complain that instead of doing yet another X-Com he should go further back and update Chaos and Lords of Chaos. And then I googled and realised that he had.

See you all next month!

EDIT: Nevermind, it's only available on Steam.

Re: Phoenix Point - From X-COM creator
XCOM with a real geoscape sounds really attractive, XCOM with old XCOM combat would be incredibly bad. I hope he has the perceptiveness to learn from what Firaxis got right.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Re: Phoenix Point - From X-COM creator
I am most interested in two features that are teased:

a) Having non-alien factions in the mix which have a standing based on your actions and alligances.

b) The AI elvoving its troop roster depending on mission performance of its units.

Esspecially the last bit is going to be interesting as to how it is facilitated because adaptable AIs can lead to quite the difficulty spike if they pull out their "rock" after having played several rounds just "paper".

Also, behemoths sound fun...

Eurogamer ran an preview with exactly that question in mind, from what they said it follows that the combat will be closer to the Firaxis-version but with a few changes (e.g. two actions but your movement speed depends on your weapon)

"When you work with water, you have to know and respect it. When you labour to subdue it, you have to understand that one day it may rise up and turn all your labours into nothing. For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

"As you sought to steal a kingdom for yourself, so must you do again, a thousand times over. For a theft, a true theft, must be practiced to be earned." - The terms of Nysa's curse, Pathfinder: Kingmaker

"...because they are not Dragons."

Re: Phoenix Point - From X-COM creator
Huh so it's X-Com/The Mist/UFO-Aftermath. I could tell immediately from one look at the Geoscape that they've taken huge inspiration from the UFO series.
