I can't wait for this to come out.

Wait, this is a $60 product? I always thought this was a downloadable $20 thing...I don't know whether or not I'll get it then but cool trailer nonetheless.

Great trailer and ugh I'm totally going to buy this aren't I? Really, really interested to see how this turns out.

I have not been this excited for a game in years. Even the CGI trailers are turning me on.

But it is totally a game-ass game with a single player campaign and multiplayer , and also this is filling that void Valkyria Chronicles left so I'm very excited for it.

I'm just into strategy games all that much and I'm not super into taking $60 gambles.

I can see that I'm doing the same thing with Persona 4 Arena.

He totally sounded like Peter Cullen to me also lol I'm pretty sure it isn't him though.

I want play game.

Marriage made in heaven this. Xcom and Firaxis. Can you even imagine??

Let's hear it for a turn-based resurgence!

Posted by Slate

Ah. the good old times sitting behind my PC moving sprites with time-units around a map and nearly shitting myself because of an alien running up to one of my men are back...good times.......good times....

All of the want

Posted by SortedeVaras

Should have got Optimus Prime voice for VO guy but otherwise looks sick.

Posted by Viking_Funeral

Hyped!

Posted by HmmJustABox

Looks great.

Day 1 purchase.

Posted by crusader8463

I'm so in love with this game that I'm tempted to buy a physical copy for a change just so I can pet it to sleep at night when it finally comes out. There you go Firaxis. Box quote for ya!

I went to Cracked once, and every time I see Independence Day referenced I seethe inside because I know there was a deleted scene that explains it.

Damn! I need a new PC! D:

Don't get me wrong I'm excited for this game, but did any of you actually watch the trailer? It was kind of terrible.

Posted by MeatSim

Still totally on board for this game.

It was very cheesy sure but that style totally fits with the game.

Posted by vinsanityv22

You can experiment with that silly XCOM FPS all you want 2K, so long as you bring us the real thing. Which, thankfully, this is:)

I wish all companies revived dormant properties as smartly as this. They're totally taking a page from Capcom's Bionic Commando book - do a completely new one if you want, but also do one that's respectful of the old style so you keep everyone happy. It's not hard. And yet you still have people like EA who shit all over their classic properties constantly, like with Syndicate and Ultima and Command & Conquer. *sigh* Some people just will not learn...

To bad Jeff Goldblum really is not around for this.

Posted by GERALTITUDE

Awesome. Most anticipated game of the year for me.

@lowestformofwit: This is an old "wet" dream, coming true!

I was going to say, getting a strong Peter Cullen vibe off that dude.

Posted by lunalicrichard

I look at these video's and i like the whole vibe of the game , but i freakin' hate turn based shit . It's so 1642 .....

Posted by Ninja_Welshman

Pre-ordered and ready!!

Posted by HalfDane1975

I would really like to have a version of XCOM for the ipad. But this game is going to rock on my PC !

Same here. I can't wait for this, but the trailer sucked. I'm usually stoked after watching a trailer for a long-awaited game, but this one kinda made me cringe.
Edited by Avskum

I can't wait for this, from all that I've read this sounds really promising. I think Firaxis might just be the ones that finally make a worthy follow up to the original Xcom.

Freedom is the right of all sentient life...the freedom to DIE, MOTHERFUCKING ALIEN INVADERS!!!

That was the first Alex tag line I've ever enjoyed, but only because I'm a sucker for Independence Day and Jeff Goldblum's ongoing fantastical genius.

Trailer: "Our operatives represent the best our nations have to offer."

Gameplay: "Vaguely threatening raccoon spotted!" "Rookie has panicked!"
