My first copy was a pirated one that a friend gave me about 7 years ago. I have since bought copies at Babbages and other stores, as well as a few copies off ebay and other online sites.

I was passing through a store and checking out the soitware available. I saw Xcom and as I really like science fiction I thought that I'd try it. Its has now become the game that I play the most.

I really don't know how I got it, but my faintest memory of our first pc tell me the game was on it. However, I haven't got a clue on how it got there.... Nevermind, it was the best thing on the d***ed thing, so I was very happy! But this is why I voted 'other'.....
By the way, the game was cracked...... B)

I forget how I got it, but I have the box and manual still. Lost the disks at some point. I guess it might have been a present or something. Now I have to download a copy to play, but I did own it before.

TftD I bought myself, some time later.

Stroke of luck in my case :P


When I was a kid I wanted Doom oh-so-badly. Since my gaming habits were controlled by my parents at the time, that was a no-go. Violence in games begetting violence in real life and whatnot. So I browsed through the shop, found this little game called UFO:Enemy Unknown. It looked nice, so I thought what the heck. MY dad thought it was okay. Big mistake :)

Haven't stopped killing aliens since. :D



Oh, and I got Doom later anyway.

My X-com story.
i first saw x-com in 1994. a friend had borrowed it from one of his friends. years later i bought a 3 in 1 pack and X-com 3 was part of that pack.
I loved it and made it my mission to find all x-com games.
i now leagly own X-com 3 and 4.
My X-com 1 cd exploded in the drive (cheap peice of crap) so i just downloaded a replacement and the manual.
i could never find X-com 2 in sotres where i live so i doenloaded it.

I LOVE X-COM :wub:

I would watch my Dad for hours kill alien after alien on his computer in my parents bedroom. After listening to my parents fight millions of times, going to bed late to see my pops in one more terror mission, and putting off homework to watch something that was like a movie to me, I became hooked on X-COM UFO (but it only took about an hour of WATCHING the game to get me hooked for life).

Back in high school I had a small network of gaming friends and we would always circulate the good games we came across. (I miss the post-copy protection days) Among the many good games this resulted in the biggest gem was the original X-Com. I was hooked after the first mission and kep backup copies of the Zip files on 2 sets of disks and my hard drive to never risk losing the game.

Later when Xcom2 was released i rushed to stores to get a copy. One of my biggest gaming regrets is not having yet beaten part 2 (friggin tech tree) I eventually bought a full copy of part 1 so that i would have Cd backups of both games. Sadly i heard horrid things about apocalypse so to not ruin my feelings of the Xcom universe i have passed it over and stayed with the originals.

I'm HIGHLY looking forward to playing Xenocide. I've been hoping someone would take the reins and revive this classic in a modern setting for too many years. :master:

My best friend was into downloading games from pirate bulletain boards. He always had the latest games and I would watch him play for hours. He gave me a copy of it, and what do you know?, it was buggy. My dad liked it too, so he went out and bought it, thinking that would fix the bugs. He's a silly man :hammer:

I never bought TFTD, but played it at my friends house. I bought X-Com:Apoc and didn't really like it. I still have X-Com DOS CD, X-Com on Playstation and X-Com Apoc but I can't play any of them. :stupid:

I just went to a site that deals with old games that are now in the public domain. And these games (XCOM 1 & 2) are public domain now! >8-)

So I just tried them... and played a great deal!!!! (until I was too upfed with the bugs, that is.)

I guess anyone wanting these games can just go to http://www.abandonware-france.org/
then click "strategie" and UFO...
(Anyone knowing an English equivalent of this great site?)

Play a lot! And enjoy real life too.

i once tried the playstation version, but i couldn't find the game anywhere. A few years ago, I bought a big pile of old (and even some quite new ones) games really really cheap ($50 for about....50 games...X-com for $1?). Xcom: EU included.

I've got Apoc and Interceptor on Bornholm, a small island i visited once. About....$10-15 each. Why the heck they were germen only, is beyond my understanding.

I hope this story amuzes you all.

Winning a Magic: the Gathering tournament in 1995, won me the game. I remember I thought: WHAT a crappy game, just look at that simple cover! Im NEVER going to play this, what a STUPID prize. Those graphics will suck. One of the guys who bought the prize tried to convince me but i couldnt be swayed, and just didnt believe him. I almost traded it for 3 Magic cards, but something in me said: 'Well, I actually dont know the value yet. Let me wait and see, although that could take a while.'
After getting an old Pentium 1 in my room in 1999, i decided to give that old CD-rom Dos version a go in Windows 95, friendly to DOS games btw.

Because I didnt expect much I had little patience with the game. I didnt understand what was going on or what the game wanted me to do. I had just the CD and nothing else. No description, no manual printed out (it was/is an original CD). It was one of my first game CD's (if not THE first), and I used to install games using floppy disks (copied, of course). Games like Dune 2 and Civilization 1. They didnt have manuals either. Settlers. Battle Isle 2. Great games. From the pre-copy-protection era where you could easily hack and crack games... Things havent changed much since then :D

In the game, years went by, countries didnt leave (beginner), (because) sometimes i could get an UFO to crash land and go to the crash sites. But I couldnt down the large UFO's, and didnt switch to Avalanche missiles, i found them expensive and they blew up the small ones.
I didnt research, because I didnt know how to, though i tried - i thought that researchers would do that themselves if i just paid them: Like in other games, like Civ. So I started projects but they took years to complete (no allocated men). I guessed that was normal and realistic even.
I didnt manufacture, because why manufacture stuff you can buy, right? - I even selled my engineers and was disappointed that they didnt net any money.
"well at least i wont be paying their salary anymore, i guess that's a plus..."

Monthly scores were low, but I didnt have any comparison: I thought I was doing pretty well.

Most crash sites had a 1 level UFO, so I thought ALL ufo's had 1 level. They never got names because i never got HWD. Sometimes I would get a two-level UFO, imagine my surprise! I never heard of reaction fire, but I did use the buttons 'reserve for ...shot' and was not so bad tactically using human tech.When I found Heavy Plasma guns during tactic but the things didnt work. I was surprised I could see them in my inventory at all. And that I could sell them all, which i did. Each month, before the end. Guess when I checked the progress or new possible projects on research? Yep...

Every month I would get a terror site and that would be the 'action' I thought, in the game. Judged by that standard, if there was no terror site: BORING month. (and a negative score, i knew i missed it).

I tried to read UFOpaedia but all it told about was human tech. I didnt look on the CD-rom for a manual, again why would I? Acrobat what?

It was just a nameless, unknown Earth in DOS graphics that you could play with.
But "was I having fun?" I asked myself at one point. And the answer surprised me, it was yes.

Even just spinning Earth around gave a nice feeling, and I would show my friends:
"Here, look..."
"haha, cool"
...(pause)...
"so what's the purpose of the game?"
*shrugs* "No idea. I think the game is trying to be realistic and make you paranoia, typical American thing 'y see. You can crash those UFO things and once a month you get a terror site. Research actually takes a lot of time, but its 2004 in the game now and it doesnt change much... so.. luckily you can speed up time"
"... boring game huh? Expensive?"
"no, for free"
"ah."

And there had to be more if I couldnt get those large UFO's to crash land and the game allowed for more weapons to appear in my inventory, even though i couldnt use them. Still, 5 years for a motion scanner? You could fool me every time:

"sorry sir Commander, these things just take time. We're sure you understand..."
"Yeah Im a nice guy, you guys take your time. Progress is low but you'll get it one day im sure"
"yes sir! *cough* sucker *cough*"
"oh that's a nasty cough you have there, shouldnt you take a holiday?
etc.

So I did one of my first searches on the internet. It was www.excite.com back then. I found an 67 page long FAQ and some smaller ones (2 or 3 page max). I copied some tables from the long one and read the smaller ones.... remember my patience for the game was still low.

... plasma?... blaster what?.... AVENGER.. huh? and what are all these base facilities?
I can capture aliens? I need to research them? But that's not how Civ works... perhaps i forgot something. I get no progress.. oh i have to allocate ahh right...

I made my own strategies based on the tables and got further into the game on beginner. And the rest, they say, is history. ^_^

Macbeth. No, not the Shakespeare one.

In my youth there was this game magazine Gameshow, and there was a great writer there, nicknamed Macbeth, and usually he liked the games that I did.

He was mentioning UFO from time to time and comparing other games to it. When Terror From the Deep showed up, I just had to buy it.
Passenger ship terror site, first turn, I open the door of my Triton, there is a Tasoth up on the next floor (his back is facing the screen so I don't know what weapon he has).

One of my guys fire at him, hit, he reaction fires with Thermal Shock Launcher. The whole crew stunned. Mission over.

My mom and dad bought X-com when it first came (wow) and they beat it in about a week (wow, for me anyway) and then they let my uncle try it. Then he was on vacation in the UK sometime and got Enemy Unknown and he gave the CD to us in exchange for the floppies. And one time I was visiting and he gave the floppies to me.


Sometimes I'll play 1.00 from the floppies that were saved on a zip

My Highschool friends introduced my to it back in '93 (*GASP* already ten years ago!! :blink: )
I've been hooked ever since, but I did love the improvement of TFD, some minor flaws corrected, better graphics... If only you could get past the complete RIDICULE of throwing grenades underwater, or the simple fact that it's a lot harder to walk underwater that to simply float around... :hammer:

I've not seen it's like since the DOS days are long gone, until I discovered the excitment that bubbled around it in the last few years... I would have bought the original if only it was still possible to find one somewhere :crying:

But then I found where to DOWNLOAD IT!!!! :happybanana:

(...)
Sadly i  heard horrid things about apocalypse so to not ruin my feelings of the Xcom universe i have passed it over and stayed with the originals.

I'm HIGHLY looking forward to playing Xenocide.  I've been hoping someone would take the reins and revive this classic in a modern setting for too many years.  :master:

"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another which states that this has already happened.
