I just watched the video Deep Dive of this new X-COM game and I simply had to post on your forums and express my excitement for this new game. If you developers are even bothering to read stuff like this (and I know most don't), I hope at least my enthusiasm will come across at a glance. I just have to say I feel Firaxis is on the right track with this one. You guys and gals appear to have a good understanding of everything that made the original X-COM great. I know it's too early to tell, but this "re-imagining" is doing it all right so far. The game mechanics, the look, the atmosphere and the visuals all feel like X-COM should. Perhaps even better! I feel all the core elements are there but now with new technology and innovative features that make this game shine. Of all the X-COM games that have come and gone (official and otherwise) this looks like the first attempt that is getting it far more right than wrong.
Me and my friends were cautiously discussing this title for the last few months, but sicne the gameplay video we are now all cautiously optimistic (we are in the era of anti-hype and disillusionment, so take that as high praise). I hope for all the best with this new title and look forward to geeking out a bit about it on your forums.
