Happy X-Day Everyone! It’s March 1, 2015: the beginning of the alien invasion in XCOM: Enemy Unknown!
I thought I’d celebrate by sharing some of my favorite XCOM art.
Piero Macgowan has a bunch on his blog, but I’d like to share a few of my favorites, as well. I absolutely love the alien battleship. The mission where you land on an intact ship and battle over China is my favorite mission in the entire game.
A touching memorial for Colonel Rose McLeod, by Rob Chandler. Like I said, you get pretty attached to your soldiers. I would love it if the game had memorials like this. It would be the final punch to the gut after your mistakes get your soldiers killed.
This one is from Steam, from a Holiday Sale. Isn’t it just adorable? Aww, Sectoids have never been so cute! I would totally buy this if it existed. I really wish there were more tangible XCOM goodies to buy. The entire game has a very action figure and board game feel, and it’s a shame that I can’t have a MEC sitting on my desk, ready to railgun away any Thin Men that show up at work.
