Posted by lockwoodx

Looks amazing. Mass effect what?

THANKS FOR THE SPOILER ALEX GOD

Posted by Christoffer

Great a follow up to some of the most nerve wracking games I've ever played. This should be fun.

Posted by Boiglenoight

Any reservations I had about a remake are gone. This looks very, very good.

Posted by Artigkar

Looks pretty much what I wanted out of a new xcom game.

Posted by Euey

WANT!!!

Posted by Artisan88

Thank you Firaxis (preemptively) !!!!

Posted by 2HeadedNinja

ok, sold ... take my moneys ... all of them!

Posted by Dredlockz

MY WHOLE BODY IS READY

Posted by GTCknight

So GI.JOE (with aliens) the videogame. That doesn't sound horrible to me.

Note: I have not played the first X-COM. However, if they keep up what their doing with this one. I might go buy and play both of them.

Time units are too complicated for players?! Wow, that is pretty harsh insult right there.

Posted by dyong

I am satisfied that this is being made.

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

This looks fantastic. I legitimately can't wait

Ant farm? awesome!

This x1000

Please don't mess up the soundtrack.  The original was just creepy and really created that tense atmosphere.

Posted by mariussmit

Awesome. I'm so glad this game is happening.

Posted by myslead

this looks sooo good

Jagged Alliance reboot should have been like that goddammit.

Posted by Morka

Only bad thing i can say is that there is not enough dubstep.

Posted by LordLOC

Gotta admit, this looks awesome. I was a bit skeptical about it (not that I didn't think Firaxis couldn't make a good XCOM game) but now I'm sold.

Only bad thing - seeing them use a controller made me a bit sad :( but hey, easy to control is ok also right?

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Ok. Done. Sold. You have my money Firaxis.

Posted by mrDennis

Goosebumps :D

Posted by Doskias

I have no prior experience with XCOM, but I want this game.

Posted by JakeLogan

I am so hard for this

Posted by Tesla

Yessssss this looks fantastic!

Posted by Nelander

Shut up and take my money!

Posted by Dredlockz

@charlie_victor_bravo:

As someone who just went back to play the original X-COM again, in anticipation, I can tell you that time units are a pain.

Posted by Progman9000

Done. Sold. Take my money.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

I KEEP THROWING MONEY AT THE SCREEN BUT NOTHING'S HAPPENING!!!!

Posted by Incapability

This looks fantastic. If we can have Alpha Centauri II next, that would be perfect. I do wonder how fast the novelty value of the cinematic camera wears off, though. Hopefully it won't be all cinematic action all the time.

Posted by Alphazero

Firaxis was a great choice.

Posted by MeatSim

I like everything I have seen of it so far.

Posted by OrgunUK

Take my money!

What?! Are you a potato? Time units in X-COM are easy if you can count properly.

Posted by EastboundSpider

Not super exited about the smaller squads, but, if the rest is good then i'm okay with it!

Posted by Nerolus

Never been so interested in this game before. Awesome.

Might even go play the old ones.

Posted by Marz

crap, day 1 purchase for me.

The point is that they found a way to eliminate the need for all that counting without crippling the tactical aspects of the game. They simplified that which was needlessly complex, and added depth by adding new tactical mechanics such as the cover system. If your only counter-argument is some sort of weird time unit snobbism, well...

Posted by NicksCorner

Looks good, but I hope the controls havent been dumbed down too much. And that kill shot feature could get old fast.

But great to see that X-COM stil lives!

Posted by Beomoose

As someone who missed the original X-COMs (don't hate, I was poor), the combat and light "rpg elements" in this bring to mind Valkyria Chronicles. With a (very) little Sim Tower in the base building.

Looks cool, do want.

Posted by Dylabaloo

Looks sweet, wonder what systems it's coming out for.

Posted by charlie_victor_bravo

@S0ndor:

-Here is 10 dollars, go by what you need.

-But I do not know how to count, mommy.

-OK, you can buy 3 candy items. You can count to 3, can you?

I am really having hard time believing that people have trouble with handling limited set of units.

The point is simplicity and ease, not whether a person is able to count. The developers changed it because they felt it was easier this way. But you are obviously more interested in being an Internet dick and troll, than actually trying to understand the reasoning behind the change.

I'm done here. This is Giantbomb, not freaking 4chan.

Posted by wardcleaver

Looks cool. However, that generic alien design is kinda a letdown.

Posted by Efesell

Yes how much

Posted by niamahai

its gonna be a XBLA title.

Seriously, the pics don't do it justice. The realtime observation of my army dudes and dynamic zoom almost makes this worthwhile to purchase by itself for me, especially as I build it up an customize.

Edited by vinsanityv22

This game looks so much better, and more fun, than 2K Marin's game. It's going to be REAL interesting to see if this, or XCOM, sells better, and across which platforms. I bet PC and PS3 players (who turned Valkyria Chronicles into a hit) will buy more of this one, but the Xbox Live headset wearing meathead crowd will no doubt embrace the shooter game more.
