Cool. I am very much looking forward to this game.
EDIT: Yes, I already have this quest.
@Nicholas: I saw what you did there.
Great interview Ryan & looking forward to this game so much.
I cannot wait to play this.
This game is one of the best things I've heard about from E3, and the Firaxis dudes + Mikey from Gearbox were great on the Bombcast.
Dammit, this game looks awesome!
SO HYPED ABOUT THIS
THAT I HAVE TO WRITE IN CAPITALS
of all the games in the near future this is probably the one im most excited about.
Now you have to train your guys how to replace broken windows.
I just noticed that the thumbnail for this interview is almost a mirror image of the thumbnail for Alex's SimCity interview.
Awesome. I liked X-Com a lot, but the complexity could be a tad overwhelming at times. And it was god damn hard, coming from someone that loves a challenge.
Firaxis is full of smart dudes so this could really be something special.
awesome interview. looking forward to playing the shit out of this game.
I bet in the final game they'll open windows if not actively engaged in combat.
Pumped for this game. PUMPED
It looks very cool. I'd like to see Firaxis do a game based on Gantz in the same fashion. Overcoming the odds against crazy aliens is one of my favorite sci-fi tropes.
I literally had no interest in this until I listened to the E3 Bombcast and watched these videos. Very excited now.
Easily the game I am most looking forward to this year.
When I first heard about this, I thought it was a fever dream. Firaxis and X-COM, never in my wildest dreams. Listening to Jake on the Bombcast about issues with the end game of the OG X-COM makes me super excited.
The interviews are a lot nicer this year since everyone ends with a handshake. Last year the endings were always slightly awkward looking.
This is the game i'm most looking forward to this year. Haven't played and X-com game since Terror From The Deep.
XCOM and Dishonoured out on the same day?! Stoked.
This game looks dope and I'm not even a strategy fan
Interview of the show. You killed it Ryan. Job well done.
I've never played an X-COM game, so I really don't know what to think about this, but I always want to support it because of how much I like Firaxis and how kind they've been about letting me tour their offices (where, coincidentally, I got to see X-COM being tested when it was only just a rumor).
Cool stuff and great people. Definitely going to support this game.
I am excited to the maximum extreme about this game.
Game of the year, boys.
God I want this so bad.
I am so excited about this game and I am very pleased to see the cinematic "action" camera. It makes the flow of battle feel more consistent and interesting - something that I've often felt turn based strategy games should do. In many action games you can miss a lot of stuff because it's all happening at once/pretty fast, but in a turn based game you SHOULD take the time to show things. Nothing else is going on so why the hell not? Make combat look visceral and exciting! You have all the time in the world to show them doing cool stuff so you might as well do it! Making an option to turn it off is the best idea as well, because there are certainly people who don't want it due to time/interest.
Even my wife wants to play this game! We are so excited for it.
I really like Firaxis. They do games right. Giving people the option to play how they want and letting people play with all the complexity in tact or get some help playing the game. Sounds like this will continue and I'm excited to see this game.
This is the game i'm most looking forward to this year.
We love YOUR stuff too!
Firaxis is among my fav studios and X-COM is one of my fav franchises. Cant wait for this!
Never played the original X-COM, but I'm pretty excited for this for some reason, seems cool! Maybe Ryan's enthusiasm for the game has transferred to me. Hopefully the console version plays well, I had no qualms with Civ Rev.
I'm so glad they're making a new X-Com that caters to the old X-Com fans.
Everything I see of this indicates they really get it, are very into what they're doing and are going to ship an extraordinary game. Fingers crossed. Then again, Firaxis' track record is pretty fucking amazing in my book so I'm not too worried of course. Now the game's called keeping the hype in check and patiently wait for october.
I totally saw Vinny/Drew zoom in when they meant to zoom out!
New equipment strikes again! :p
Totally solid interview. I envy Ryan's technique on this.
great interview, great looking game = day one purchase
October can't come soon enough. Looks great.
This & Dishonored are going to make October awesome!
Can't wait for this game. The cinematics to fill in the gaps of action for a turnbased game sounds inspired. Though really, for me, it will be the ant farm that will take the bulk of my time.
At the very top of the list of things that will eat up more of my time than is reasonable...
This guy has some DEADPAN delivery. He caught me off guard with both of his joke-lies.
