My father who is absolutely nuts with Xcom as am I . He found this video on Game informer the first news post it seems on Firaxis and XCOM.
The video is three of the main people on the project telling us why they wanted to do and what they are doing. Watch the video and you will see these guys are on the ball.
Here is some Screenshots of the remake. If they keep the core of the game just like they said and it looks like this with improvements then I think its going to be good.
Of course I say this. The only other person who has gave me such confidence was Peter Molynoux.....and we all know what that leads to.
