Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces and XCOM, the planet's last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda below and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to rise from the ashes, expose the insidious truth behind the occupation, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

Given the recent interest in this game, figured I'd post the release date Wink

 

MARQAEDIT: Changed date to Feb 5th.

Console GamingNintendoWii U

The long await sequel to Super Smash Bros lands on the Wii U, and just in time for the holidays!  I realize I might be the only one of our members who owns a Wii U, but I'm super excited to play it.  Anyone else have the system, and considering picking up this game?

Online multiplayer support should also be much better in theory, now that the old Nintendo WiFi connection from the DS/Wii days has been shutdown, and the current "Nintendo Network" seems to working much better.

Super Smash Bros returns - and for the first time on the Nintendo 3DS!  For those of us who have this system, it should support online multiplayer support, and could be a huge blast to play!

Anyone besides myself excited to see this series hit the portable console and the fun it could potentially bring?
