    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!

    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.
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.

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