"Just Okay Games" Class Stream - MehXCOM
In this class stream with Mike Birkhead, we play The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, widely known as "the XCOM that everyone hated." Both of us went in with the hypothesis that the game was not really as bad as everyone said, but rather fell victim to the trap of unmet and unexceeded expectations, which we discuss at length.

We press the stream audience to think about solutions to design problems we stumble into, and have many discussions about ammo systems, camera tricks, polish, and comparable games that suffer from perhaps lower-than-deserved scores.
