Diary of the Volunteer (XCOM: Enemy Within)

This diary was found in the Volunteer’s room during the collection of his possessions to send home to his family – those who survived, that is. It includes daily entries from the day the alien attacks began up to the day of the final operation against the alien mothership. Most of the entries are ommitted; however, those which divulge the important aspects of the Volunteer’s character are replicated here. Perhaps this will provide some insight into the mind of the [...]

[News] XCOM: Enemy Unknown Announced For iOS

At the tail end of 2012, the game EVERYBODY at Twinfinite HQ was playing was XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Hell, my man Muaz Zekeria kept a log of his playthrough with all of us as his team. While it was released on PS3, 360, and (its proper place…let’s be honest) PC, it didn’t get any love in the handheld realm. Well, hang on to your ray guns because this game is coming out on iOS! At this point Firaxis hasn’t released [...]

[Featurama] Twinfinite Staff Finishes XCOM

If you’ve been following my playthrough of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, you’ll know that I drafted my Twinfinite coworkers to fight the alien menace. So far, we’ve done a pretty good job of handling anything they’ve thrown at us with minimal casualties. The losses we did have, for the most part, were unavoidable and were the fault of the soldiers refusing to follow orders and generally being useless buffoons. Hit the jump for the final few missions and what happens to us [...]

[Featurama] Twinfinite Staff Enrolls In XCOM

If you haven’t played XCOM: Enemy Unknown yet, you really should. The strategy and RPG elements are great to play around with. The best thing about XCOM though, is being able to name soldiers after people you know. In this case, I named my entire army after my coworkers here at Twinfinite. This will be updated every couple of days as I progress through the game. Hit the jump to see which of the staff dies and which ones you [...]

[Review] XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Normally with reviews I start out with an opening paragraph kind of leading into my review of the game. Usually I end that paragraph with a cheeky line that basically reads: “so does the game live up to the hype?” Well, I’m not going to do that with XCOM. Not because I couldn’t think of a clever intro paragraph, but because I’m going to give you the TL:DR version of the review right now: go buy XCOM: Enemy Unknown because [...]
