|Linux version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown spotted in Steam... (1)|
|Firaxis' XCOM: Enemy Unknown has had its cover blown by a nosy-parker who spotted the turn-based strategy lurking within the Steam database with penguins of a dubious nature. It's possible they're extra-terrestrial.

|"AI should be a lot better now," says XCOM creator, "... (0)|
|Julian Gollop, creator of the XCOM series, has said that "AI should be a lot better now," but that it hasn't really improved since the original XCOM's AI of a "few Kb" designed for 80386 PC. It hasn't leaped with hardware.
While XCOM: Enemy Unknown "does a good job" with its AI, it still "relies a lot on the player triggering stuff." It's behaviour-based and predictable patterns soon emerge.
