If you are a regular viewer of the Fraxial Show you should know by now that I have really been enjoying XCOM: Enemy Unknown. The core mechanics in this tactical turn-based strategy game are executed so well that my entire focus was locked in for the past few weeks. Having finally completed this fantastic game, I share with you what makes XCOM one of the best games of 2012.
On this episode of the Fraxial Show we continue some XCOM gameplay coverage with a quick multiplayer match. We also discussed the weekly game releases which include Doom 3 BFG and Serious Sam 3: BFE among others

After spending the last few weeks on Borderlands 2, we finally changed things up with some gameplay footage of the new XCOM game. Unfortunately due to ‘poor’ internet conditions, Mike was not able to pre-load the game in time which means the multiplayer will wait until next week.
We also discussed about S.P.A.Z. (Space pirates and zombies) which was one of two new games Mike played over the weekend. As for the news, we covered the recent updates to both Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Borderlands 2 along with the release of Logitechs new G710+ Mechanical Keyboard.
