  1. That sound you just heard is thousands of Japanese fans crying out in anguish as we get what could be the best version of I-II yet.

    • Well…The fact that it is a Steam game and not a traditional program install does detract from the value.

      And yes, I have not be amused that I need Steam to play XCOM.
