    XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Anyone playing it right now?

    I just noticed this on PS+ on Monday when I was renewing my PS+ Subscription w/ a PS+ 1yr card from BestBuy that I got for $39.99 ($10 of for Game Club Reward Members.)

    Anyway I remember playing XCOM:UFO Defense in Grad. School many many moons ago. I was addicted to it. But I figured it may not be as fun in the modern day.

    There are a few modifications but so far the game is along the same mechanics, but it's not bad. I'm enjoying going back to a Turn Based game for a bit.

    Just started playing it last night, and I couldn't put it down, well until the wife asked me if I was ever going to go to bed and I realized I had been playing for a solid 7hrs and it was pretty late.

    So, anyone else playing this now?

    Skip to 3:09 and bask in the glory of the best soundtrack to go with XCOM. Oh, and I was saying Eat This! when I was shot gunning them as well, cause I'm The Boss like that.

    I've been playing it during the last week right up to when I got The Last of Us which is consuming my time at the moment.

    I like what they've done, it's definitely challenging (and just a tad cheaty at times ) but it's certainly a good fun.

    Is Xcom still free for PS+ members? since i have started playing my PS3 again i'm thinking about renewing my subscription, since i will be getting a PS4 on release day anyway.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Yeah The Last of Us has been consuming most of my gaming time so I haven't had a chance to really dive into my PS+ games.

    When it came out, I couldn't put it down. Then I decided to try out a trainer, and it was never the same since (on PC).

    Starting to get back into it though (started a new game) for both Steam and PS3 versions.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.
