I am giddy with excitement!  Now I just pray it will not be like D&D - Eye of the Beholder.  I was all pschyed for a real D&D game and got ....well crap.

This game has me feeling the same way about a real Xcom type game (probably Xcome lite I know)


Oh and the important thing from teh article

Also coming to the GBA in June that may should be of interest is Riviera.  I don't know too much about it but Atlus is the publisher, it has gorgeous graphics, and I *think* its a strat RPG.

Which, if you don't know, is the company founded by the original creators of X-Com!

Wow, thanks for the news!  Codo is currently working on Laser Squad Nemesis, but it had been a while since the last update.  It seems that this is what they were working on.

Looks like since they don't have the X-com license anymore, they're reviving all their old games.

Oh yeah...

(From the website):

    * Four Play Modes: Campaign, Skirmish, Multiplayer Hotseat (1 for Game Boy Advance) and Multiplayer Link Mode.
    * Turn-Based Strategy with a Twist: Destructible maps and gas canisters, use the environment to your advantage with true line of site (in 8 directions)
    * Turn-Based Combat System: Players controls individual soldiers in a turn-based combat system. A replay option lets players review what happened during their opponent’s turn.
    * RPG Elements: Experience true character interaction and development. Equip characters with different types of weapons and equipment, including grenades, sniper rifles, missile launchers and laser rifles.
    * Stealth Skills: Players hide and dodge at the end of a turn in preparation for an enemy attack.


Equippable characters? Character Development? Destructable maps?

OH HELL YEAH!!!

Sweet. Hope it turns out good. These type of games are one of my favs on the GBA.

Ive been wanting one that wasnt fantasy based and either sci fi or real world. Still would like a more real world Jagged Alliance turn based strat.
