Pretty sweet black screen we got here.

Info from the website:

The year is 1962, JFK is President and the Cold War has the nation gripped by fear - but a far more powerful and insidious enemy than communism is threatening America. Known only to a select few, a top-secret government unit called The Bureau begins investigating and concealing a series of mysterious attacks by an otherworldly enemy. As special agent William Carter, players call the shots, pull the trigger and lead their squad in a gripping third-person tactical shooter set within a high-stakes, covert war to protect humanity. The Bureau's mission is clear - survive, adapt and overcome the enemy threat. The Bureau has been erasing the truth for decades. The time will come for the truth to be revealed.

Well, Bioshock 2 was at least decent, so i guess I´ll keep my plasma rifle charged for this one.

Honestly I was excited for this XCOM because the idea of playing an old style G-Man defending the US of A from ET appealed to me a lot.

I love the 60's!

To be honest, I'm not sure I am excited about this. Bioshock 2 was lackluster compared to 1 (not bad, just lackluster) and I just always get a bad feeling when the announcement video is all live action.

Obviously nothing from the actual game here, but I'm definitely into the tone! I hope the game has this same sort of G-man clandestine feel to it.

im still playing the shit out of XCOM so i might give this a look when it comes around, the change of setting might be nice,

I like this era of Americana and I love X-Com, I can only logically assume game of the year.

Very classy that they changed the name. Not allot of publishers are going that route. But the only gameplay footage I've seen was shooting some black goop. I'll be looking forward for more in depth gameplay.

Aliens vs. Bike: whoever wins... well, actually, we probably only have to worry about the aliens.

Well after numerous delays and whatnot, I am intrigued. I feel like I need to know if this is any good just out of curiosity if anything. Hmm, August is pretty soonish...I suppose we'll see gameplay videos soon enough.

I liked the 50's G-Men vibe from the initial trailer. Hope that is still intact in this current build of the game.

Wait, this game still exists? What are they thinking?

@glasswall52: Redacted, top secret. You don't have necessary clearance.

I remember when the Idea of whole missions being about "just running" sounded unique, that was years ago. This thing is along time coming. Hope it holds up.

Well, does this mean Patsy Cline's music will be in this game? Because the last two Fallout games dropped the ball. I don't really like this version but screw it.

This looks kinda neat

I'm on board for this one, I think. BioShock 2 was far better than it gets credit for.
