I'm like YEAH!!   BRING IT ON ALIEN SCUM!!!!!!!

Yeah, it is funny.  I still remember the initial news a while back that, "Hey, there's a new X-Com game coming out!"  And then that excitement was washed away when details of the X-Com FPS were coming out.  I guess there was enough Nerd Rage coming from us old X-Com fans that the Powers That Be in gaming decided to take a gamble and do a proper, bonafide X-Com sequel.  With Firaxis, no less, a company that built its reputation on strategy games, especially Turn Based ones.

You see, internet flaming does work sometimes!

Oh, and I'm still waiting on that Alpha Centauri sequel out of Sid Meier.

When I first found out about a new X-Com coming out I told my buddy. Once I found out it was FPS I sent them a nice letter. Here is a part of it.

" If I knew I would get away with it, I would drive to your studio with a gas truck ,soak your studio down with gas and light the place up. What your doing to X-com is a disgrace and I'm cartain gamers all over the U.S. feel the same way I do."

 I know it don't do much good but it made me feel better anyway.

I knew about this but dind't think to link it. I've seen the videos but I am a bit sceptical for the time being. They had the change to make it better but from what I've seen they didn't.

 

IN a remake I am looking for full use of modern tech like 3D maps you can pan arround in, shinny 3D graphics ect....

I got that vibe from checking a few gameplay vids, though I also thought it looked a little better than the other 2? Although your idea above for the remake is cool step-forward (as is the other poster's petrol-fantasy!! lol).

Also following an iOS game Star Command who originally were including TBC xcom inspired combat but will aim to make it their first expansion (assuming 1.0 goes well) called "Away Teams". Could work great with the vision they're bringing to it even for an iOS then later android/pc game ^_^

 

What games influence you guys?
We love X-Com. We really think its the greatest game ever made on any console. Period. We're also big Civilization fans, Team Fortress 2 (look for clan deadbaby), Tie Fighter, The Sims (dollhouse for men), Game Dev Story and a lot of other titles. We try and balance instant gratification with deep, "just one more turn" type game play.

I think you could make an awesome FPS game out of the X-COM franchise. Take one of the old games, such as Enemy Unknown, and turn it into a tactical multiplayer coop shooter where you really have to work together with your team to win. Players can form their own agencies (clans) which can capture resources from the aliens, build bases and research alien technology. Add RPG elements to each agent (player) as they complete missions. Individual agents can either join agencies or work freelance to fill in empty spots on agency missions.

I actually think Syndicate is one of the best games ever made.

The new Syndicate is a slap in the face to the original.

I remember seeing and getting the first Xcom,not sure what I was really in store for, but hey it was one of the latest Pc games at the time, little did I know what a treat I was in for. I spent hours on that game. An age of true developer creativity and talent in immservie gameplay with the hardware they had to work with at the time.    The original syndicate was another.

Similar deal Syndicate FPS & Xcom FPS... 

Some awesome blogs/reading by the creator(s) of Syndicate on the FPS release and the making of the original: Just wish I could have played Syndicate multiplayer back then..

Not a huge fan of Apocalypse. I prefer Terror from the Deep because even on Beginner setting it separates men from the boys ;]

I'm a huge fan of XCOM Apocalypse. It's sad when you dig around and read old interviews to see what could have been but was cut in order to get the game shipped. Most people know about the multiple pseudo-random alien dimensions which would have been fun (and made capturing the queen and getting Alien Gas much more useful) but there was also at some point a scenario generator and multiplayer using a hotseat turn based system or a real time LAN .. it's a real shame none of that made it into the final game.  :(

I just couldn't get into Apocalypse. I tried several times, but I could simply never get past the goofy graphics. Loved EU and TFTD though. The new XCOM is also great.
 
EDIT: Oh and I just realised this thread is a huge necro.

Goofy how so? The style was certainly different from the previous games, but I liked the almost SVGA like (remember when games used to boast about being SVGA?!?) polish applied to the characters and environments.

I think the key thing for me was to treat Apoc as almost a completely different game and ignore the 'XCOM' part for a while. I don't know about others, but I pretty much played exclusively in realtime rather than turnbased to - it was crazy just how different Apocalypse was depending on which mode you played.

Goofy in the sense that the aliens looked like muppets rather than aliens. The game really suffered from the lack of any art direction.

I don't know, I didn't notice that personally. I liked the variation in the aliens visually, I think there were some interesting ideas. Anthropods were ok, poppers were fun (if not freaking scary), megaspawns, micronoids, spitters etc etc. The psimorphs were a little silly though. I wasn't too fond of the UFO insides as some of the 'features' were somewhat bland but I thought the variation between buildings, alien dimension structures etc was really good
