And then nobody liked "The Bureau". =( --Xuncu 15:53, 24 November 2013 (EST)

Huh? Wrong info page there methinks. On a different note, I don't remember if this was the case, but was the entire article paraphrased from one of Byron's old articles on XCommand? If so, it might be best to clarify that. I was thinking of putting the lot in a ref-block and noting the source would be appropriate. -NKF 00:39, 25 November 2013 (EST)
Actually I'll go ahead and do that. Can't hurt. -NKF
Yeh, a lot of old pages could use a touch up (The page for Genisis, for example: the outgoing links lead to broken pages). Anyways, I was jsut pointing out that, at least to casual observation (or a board of Execs), Alliance sounds... well, exactly like The Bureau: a 3D, squad-based shooter with over half a dozen levels where you play the squad leader (and when you command your squadmates, the camera focus on them specifically). You also go to the alien homeworld, and salvage/recover weaponry and equipment on the fly. "That's XCOM, baby!" --Xuncu 04:18, 25 November 2013 (EST)

Some Youtube videos: damn, it looked creepy.
