People were skeptical of Fallout 3 when it was in development but alas history was made. Hopefully we have the same kind of success story for Xcom

fallout was still an rpg at the end of the day.

This game is a shooter with nothing to do with xcom and slapped the name on a game of a different genre

This isnt xcom in ANY way

"but alas history was made"

You ARE aware Fallout 3 is considered by many as "Babby's first Fallout", "Worst Fallout ever" and "New Vegas is better, at least it is a REAL Fallout game", right?

Critical and economical success proved nothing but the first nickname right- most people who love Fallout 3 haven't even played other games in the franchise. It screwed with lore, presented some stupid setting, and changed Fallout from a Post Nuclear Role Playing Game that explored social recovery in a nuclear fallout with some intriguing, dark humor and brilliantly written dialogues, as well as incredible role-playing to "Press VATS to win" and "Storyline? Wuzzat? HAVE MORE BLAND SETTINGS!" and my favorite- "A LONE Wanderer with companions. Durr".

I really can't believe you're bringing up Fallout 3 as an example, you're just proving the naysayers' point further.

this isn't just a reboot, it's an entirely different game with the name XCOM

seriously fallout 3 is a poor example when it's not making the unanimity among fallout fans to begin with , and would be actually an argument against Xcom new version .

So what if fallout 3 sold ? No one is disputing that Xcom will probably sell way better as a fps , just that it is a cheap tactic and might not be worthy of the ip .

What I saw at E3 was great but I did worry about micro management in combat. We have a full write up on it here.
