  • Guys help I think I am addicted to a game.

    I just can't stop playing X-Com UFO Defense. I don't think I have played anything other then X-Com for the past week.

    Around last Saturday I decided to actually learn the game and it's just a UFO nut's dream.

    My only real complaint is that they should have used modern day (game takes place in 1999) weapons to add to the atmosphere. Maybe it's just me but having the Interceptor be a F-15 would have been nice.

    Comon Take Two hurry up and re-release the rest of the games.

    For those that don't know you can play X-Com UFO Defense on Gametap. Membership is 99 cents for the first month and 10 dollars for the rest or you can get the 59.99 pack. The sequel X-Com Terror From the Deep is available on Steam for 5 dollars I think.

    You have discovered one of the best games ever created. God help you.

    I only played it briefly myself. But I remember wanting to play it very badly after only a couple of hours of play time.

    I really liked Gametap and I am thinking about getting a new subscription.

        X-Com UFO Defense almost led me to ruin one semester of college. That game was absolutely the best sci-fi RPG I have ever played. I loved it. Game Tap you say? I may have to play it again.

          Unfortunately no. Their 99cent for the first month is their "free trial".

                  X-Com UFO Defense eh? Ah, the memories. A game that sytle had never been done better since.

                    People are still trying to turn a profit off this game?

                    This is abandonware as far as I'm concerned...

                      Um, that was rather Duh. You consider it abandonware even though you have people right here wanting to pay to play it, and someone has a distribution license to let them. You're saying just because it's old, it should be free?

                      We better let the record companies know that Elvis music should be free too then, I guess.

                        XCOM (and a few other classic games) was available for free on a PC-Gamer disc a few years ago. Might go looking for one of those..

                          Take Two currently has the X-Com license. There is a rumor going around that Kevin Levine (BioShock guy) is working on a new X-Com title.

                          Just because of how hard the game is I really don't have much hope for a new X-Com game. I mean I can imagine it being fun but matching the first game sounds very unlikely.

                            I hope it is like X-COM Enforcer. That was a decent shooter. Most levels were 5-15 minutes long.

                              I am expecting it to be a strategy game. He claims to have a ton of respect for X-Com so I think he would want to do a strategy game first.
