I can barely keep up with the video games that I already own, but I’m eager to try out the remake of X-Com. The original 1994 version X-Com was a turn-based strategy game where you, the player, would command an elite squad of soldiers against invading aliens in missions around the world. I sucked magnificently at the game and my poor soldiers would typically die horrible deaths before killing a single extraterrestrial, but the concept was compelling. The updated version has a more cinematic look and a cleaner interface. I may still suck at it, but X-Com will likely be my timesink for this fall.
