More footage from XCOM…and this is still firmly in the “gotta play” category.
Oh, yes, I do have Dark Souls…which I am about to play right now. I’ve also had a retail version of Madden 13 for a few days and will offer up some thoughts later as today is embargo lifting day.

Does anyone else think the voice over guy sounds very much like the guy who voiced Admiral Hackett in the Mass Effect series?
It certainly sounds like he’s trying to sound like Admiral Hackett. Isn’t Admiral Hackett voiced by Lance Henriksen?
I never noticed, but yeah, I checked IMDB and that’s him (in Mass; no idea about XCOM).
Comes out same day as Dishonored… damn, this pre-holiday season is gonna be packed full, to say the least.
Yeah, no kidding. Was debating Guild Wars 2, but I think I’ll have to save my money for this one. $45 for digital preorder on Amazon at the moment.
Same price in stores I buy from, which is to say – usual price for retail copies. Hmm, it’s gonna be tough – already paid for Guild Wars 2, ordered Gravity Rush for Vita by accident, and still want XCOM, Dishonored, Hitman, Burnout Parad…NFS Most Wanted, AssCreed 3 (eyeing that Freedom Edition with Connor figurine), AssCreed 3 Vita, Persona 4 Golden, *maybe* even P4Arena (thanks for that review Barnes :P). It seems something will have to wait for some sales…
Edit: for a second I thought it should be cheaper for retail than digital, but no such luck.
(Editing comments would be more than welcome btw)
It actually sounds more like Peter Cullen who voices Optimus Prime.
Haha, yeah! I knew the voice, but couldn’t place it. Not sure if it’s really Optimus, but sure reminds me of him.
Really looking forward to this game – have been for 20 years or so. I hope it’s as good as I want it to be. The small squad size bothers me.
How did I not know about this? Firaxis doing X-Com? So, so, so very happy.
It actually is Peter Cullen 😀
Hah! Now that you mention it, it does totally sound like Optimus Prime.
