I've seen a ton of threads recently saying that XCOM looks bad, that it doesn't seem a lot like the original, the blobs are stupid, etc.
Now, I agree that 2K has made several bad decisions recently, but XCOM looks perfectly fine to me.
I never played the original games. I also believe that no man has the right to drastically alter another man's creativity or ideas without their consent. HOWEVER, 2K has the rights to make XCOM any way they please because they have creative liscence and they have the rights TO REMAKE THE ORIGINAL XCOM.
Sure, it may look nothing like the original, but they're trying to create a new story out of something old. They're trying to bring the game back to life with new characters, a new plot, and some badass aliens. And it seems to me like they're doing a good job. Also, none of you guys should be saying that XCOM looks cheap, stupid, or horrible just from the trailer. There's a ton of stuff that hasn't been revealed yet.
While we're talking about 2K's creativity and stuff, I'd like to bring up the blobs. A lot of you are complaining that they have no personality. This is true. It is PRECISELY for that reason that they are scary and creepy. A mindless, formless, black death that just grabs you by surprise and kills you. You don't know why it's doing it, you only know it's trying to kill you. That is what scares me the most: A mindless animal set loose, killing anything in sight. Wouldn't that scare you, too?
Another thing: the weapons. Some people are saying that they don't make any sense or aren't creative. Keep in mind that this takes place in the 1950's, when nothing REALLY made any sense at all... people only cared about what it does and what it looks like. (Ask anybody who lived in that time period, and they'll tell you it's true. )
Well, I just ran out of creative juices, so I'll continue my anti-XCOM hater thread later. But read over what i posted, and tell me something: Do you still hate XCOM?
