    I played the first one and the underwater one. Had a blast doing it. The alien research and base building was soooooo cool.

    Oh boy... I still play the first game to this date.

    I'm*definitively*keeping my eyes out for this one!

    Awesome! I remember playing the **** out of the first 3 games when I was a wee nipper.

    Wonder if you'll still be able to give yourself all the money by adding $$ to the beginning of the liglob.dat file?

    Really looking forward to this. The other X-Com remake doesn't convey much of the atmosphere of the original but this one seems to "get it."

    Extremely eager to give it a go. Original X-Com is still one of my all-time favourites, and along with Jagged Alliance series this is something that I've been longing to continue.

    My first reaction to there being a new X-Com was "F'king sweet!", then I saw the 50's sci-fi design and deflated. Nothing against 50's sci-fi but to me X-Com (or UFO as it was known here) is near future so I was pretty chuffed when I saw the other remake.

    I'm actually playing (again) the very original X-Com these days, it's so awesome.

    This guy is a bit over the top, but he shows some interesting screenshots etc:

    All these games are now on sale at Steam if people want to take a trip down nostalgia lane!

    And, wow, the guy from the clip ... forgot to take his mood stabilizers or summink?

    Fascinating. I wonder how close they will get to the original. Such a fine line in updating a game versus ruining the appeal.

    X-COM/UFO/etc is one of the best games of all time. Anyone else remember the dialogue-less intro and the music at the start? Damn that rocked.

    The best way I can respond to this is...



    I loved the original XCOM and hope this one lives up to the greatness of it.

    I think this might be the only non-Blizzard game I've ever pre-ordered.
