Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Is this what the aliens do for fun? At least they're not playing XCOM: ENEMY UNKNOWN

so I made a thing and thought I'd share it if anyone else wants it

it's a DefaultNameList.ini with hopefully all of the forumers who have posted in this thread since release (in theory, I made the list by hand so I might have missed someone). Nationalities assigned randomly.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/19998065/SE - DefaultNameList.ini <- there if you want it

to use it, go to <Steam Directory>\steamapps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XComGame\Config\ (or the non-steam equivalent I guess) rename the existing DefaultNameList to something like DefaultNameListOriginal and save this to the folder as DefaultNameList.ini

If you do not want to replace files, just place the file in \Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\Config

If you want to be added to the list, send me a message or something.

    I still want Alpha Centauri (and yes I know it'll never happen, but I can dream damnit), but this could be really awesome (or really bad like their Railroad Tycoon remake :().

    This sounds rad. I'm interested in the shooter too but if this has turn-based combat (it probably won't!) I'm slobbering all over this game.

    "XCOM's leader needs a worldwide perspective where threats are identified, populations reassured, and national leaders mollified - but a tactical mind is just as critical considering every shot XCOM's soldiers fire on the battlefield is under the player's turn-based control."

    It will.
    Firaxis' XCOM has destructible tactical environments, and fuses a real-time strategic view with turn-based combat.

    Seeing as how the article says that "but a tactical mind is just as critical considering every shot XCOM's soldiers fire on the battlefield is under the player's turn-based control," I'm pretty sure it will be.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what 2K Marin is doing with their FPS version as well, mind. It seems like it will be a good shooter even if it doesn't turn out to be a "proper" X-Com game. But this, this is what I want.

    Me too.
    I'm still excited about it, but I'm a bit worried that it won't become financially successful.
    That said, it'll be great to have two new takes on it- in the event that one of them doesn't pan out.

    To be fair, Xenonauts seems like it will release a lot sooner than Firaxis' XCOM, hopefully people will buy it to have something to play while waiting for the big budget game.

    Also it will probably get steam sale and indie bundle boosts. Xenonauts has been gettng good advance buzz, so it should hopefully do alright.

    Yes. YES! YESSSSSS

    I've dreamt of this day for years. As much as I love the original, a proper update (graphical, physics, but retaining base building, research and the tactical combat) makes my pants tight.

    I'm tempted to get this, but if my performance in the original is anything to go by everybody will always die or go mad on the first mission, so it might be kind of a waste of money.
