To be honest, I'm surprised it took over a decade of MCU snoozefests for Mahvel games to start popping up left and right in any and every genre.

You know, I'm pretty ok with this roster. Can't please everyone with only 12/13 heroes out of all the Marvel characters, but I mean I got Blade, Wolverine and Ghost Rider and Dr. Strange so I'd be down to play this.

I can see it, War of the Chosen was going in that direction with crazier powers and stuff. Actual super humans isn't a huge leap and could work well.

I'd much rather have X-Com 3 tho

I guess I'd have just preferred a roster more used to dealing with the supernatural side of things... hopefully Moon Knight is just unannounced rather than a huge missed opportunity

I dunno if you've played Chimera Squad, but I assume its using that as pretty much a template

I read that this has been in development for years and was originally Marvel X-Com but then they threw it all out and changed it to this.

Looks like it could be fun. Idk, I haven't played an X-Com game in 20 years because while I like strategy games the setting hasn't really interested me. Otoh I like Marvel so I'll at least try this one.

I like that it's going for something different than just being a straight XCOM clone, but the create a character and taking Iron Man on a date in the park stuff is not the tactical game inspiration I wanted.  :lol

Good lord that game looks like total shit. Well I guess you found a way to piss off both MCU and XCom fans at the same time there Solomon

And I had slay the spire on day 1 before it was even finished, so they can miss with that “bububububu deck builders uguuuu~!” shit.

Hope it bombs. I wouldnt pay anything for that and I own fucking bad rats.

We are all going to be dead from Covid beta-alpha-gamma-kintaro and climate change by the time they finally get around to xcom3.

It depressingly sounds like a game designed by algorithm around the most popular non-anime steam tags

Something about the card aesthetic (cheap mobile take) and visuals don't give a positive impression. Character designs really wouldn't look out off place in Square Enix's Avengers, bland and boring.

I'm sure Firaxis have put some substance into this, but there's just no style.

(Where is XCOM 3?)

Firaxis makes good strategy games.
Super-Hero based strategy games are fun.
I'm looking forward to this.

Full disclosure, my friend is working on it, so please be nice.
