About: The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (x)

From YouTuber: ComboBreakah. This game already looks better than that debacle Enemy Unknown. Stay away from that game.

I'm pretty hype for this. I don't have it yet, waiting for that price to drop. Don't be a Jimmy! This game was shown to me at E3 like 4 years ago. It looks kinda the same. I think it's mostly the same crew that started it back in the day. I remember the guy comparing it to Final Fantasy Tactics, so I'm eager to see how much of it is still like that. Way better than Enemy Unknown. Relive some of my most ridiculous moments in that game here.

Thanks for watching.

Check out ComboBrekah's YouTube channel.

GoukiJones, BatRastered, Choke, and FnJimmy talk about the upcoming unveiling of the next Xbox console in May, XCOM FPS becoming The Bureau, Nintendo opting out of the E3 press conferences, and more.

Could the XCOM FPS Game be Canceled?

By: Cinderkin Apr 15, 2013 | 3 Comments

In an interesting turn of events the upcoming first person shooter XCOM has gone missing. Read on to see what we mean.

The delayed first person shooter XCOM from 2K Marin has a few weird things going on. If you were to visit the games website you will be greeted with a 404 error, indicating that the server is live but the content that the URL should be connecting with isn’t there.

It could possibly be just a slight error from the 2K Games side and that there isn't anything going on with the site or the game, but this seems unlikely as the XCOM: Enemy Unknown website is still up and running just fine.  What is also interesting is that on the official 2K games YouTube channel all videos and trailers of the game have been removed.

Announced in 2010 XCOM wasn't well received by fans of the series due to it going to an FPS style from the traditional RTS. It has since then suffered several delays and was recently rumored to be a downloadable third person shooter.

What is going to happen to XCOM? Will it get renamed or canceled all together? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

Shocking! XCOM delayed a whole year

By: BatRastered Jan 15, 2012 | 3 Comments

XCOM was supposed to be released March 6th, now it's delayed... all the way to 2013.

This is a weird one. We first saw XCOM at E3 2010. GoukiJones saw it again at E3 2011 and reported it was basically a different game. Then, last week, 2K comes out with the news that they're making another XCOM game (Enemy Unknown) which is more like the series' original roots as a strategy game.

Now comes the shocking news that XCOM, scheduled for release on March 6th (less than two months away) will be pushed back a whole year to 2013. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if XCOM gets cancelled. WTF is going on here, 2K?

XCOM Behind Closed Doors [E3 2011 Exclusive]

By: goukijones Jun 11, 2011 | 4 Comments

Exclusive Pictures from behind closed doors. Gouki.com got the world famous treatment from 2K Games at E3 2011 and one of the games I saw demod live right in my face was XCOM. Completely different from last year. This is my new Brink!

I certainly had the privilege to see XCOM in the 2K booth this year at E3. Last year XCOM was a FPS action game, that looked like it didn't have much to offer. This year, what I saw was a completely different game. My session was hosted by a developer or producer of the game, I can't remember his name, I nubbed it up and didn't write it down or get a card from him. He reminded of Kramer, from Seinfeld. He was great. I understand that knowing his name would have helped out a lot more with this next quote.

"The game is now a lot more like Final Fantasy Tactics" He explained in reference to the party system.

I spoke to -again I can't find his name, I apologize- He told me the game may even let you send out your party to do side missions and they will level up and bring back stuff like in Final Fantasy Tactics. My mind was blown. 

During the actual playable demo, that a developer was playing behind him on the Xbox 360. They showed a lot combat and explained how the looting of the aliens worked. XCOM is squad based now and very strategic, this aspect shown, reminded me of Mass Effect. You could hack alien tech and use it against them. Some alien tech completely blew buildings apart while playing. If you don't use alien tech right away in combat, you can take it back to the lab for more long term benefits. These were all very cool ideas that I was hearing. The game now has a release date of March 6th 2012, so this is the new official GoukiJones hype game. Don't worry XCOM will not be another Brink.  

These are my actual notes while I watched the live demo:

  • Different demo from last year
  • RPG agent elements added
  • Similar to FFTactics party
  • Team setup and choose the mission
  • Aliens look way cooler. Humanoid 
  • Squad controls
  • Capture enemies and use the powers now or later
  • Xbox Demo
  • All Aliens can be tech
  • Complete 180    

This is your base, where you suit your guys up and level up their gear.

Gouki.com saw XCOM first hand last year at E3 2010. They game appears to have a major makeover, but it is still just another FPS. Will XCOM show something new off this year. Either way the E3 2011 hype machine rolls on.

XCOM secret kitchen preview at E3 2010

By: goukijones Jun 22, 2010 | 4 Comments

In a secret kitchen hidden inside the Los Angeles convention center we watch a demo of XCOM with studio director Martin Slater.

Xcom is a classic computer game, that what I think most of the Jimmys that made the original Bioshock are trying to remake. So for me, this is a no-brainer. I loved the first Bioshock, I think it is one of the best games of all time. So we sit down right in the front of the room and take a swig from my soda bottle, Jimmy! Wink wink. Martin Slater was standing up front, BatRastered and I quickly introduced ourselves and exchanged business cards. Martin was totally laid back and knew a lot about the preview we were watching, he guided us through.

I have seen this video before, or clips of it or something. It’s not bad. The graphics seem very rough and you can tell it’s an early build. The setting is like Bioshock on land, during the day. The game is very ominous with various things scurrying about trying to give you a scare. Black blobs of static electricity to be honest. The action scene takes place inside a house where the black static blobs are attacking a family and you need to go in and kill everything. When it’s time to leave a giant alien rectangular cube appears and turns into a donut looking object.*see video* At this point the donut looking object begins blasting away and sucking up debris all around you. The demo ends with you escaping.

I want to play this game, there is no doubt. I think it’s going to be very deep. The world map was shown for a few moments during the demo and you could clearly see that your options for different things to do at this point across the United States.
