    Go to \SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XComGame\Movies

    Rename or delete the files:

    • 1080_UE3TechLogo.bik
    • 1080_Logo_2KFiraxis.bik
    • ESRB.bik
    • Logo_2KFiraxis.bik
    • UE3TechLogo.bik
    • XCOMLogo.bik

    The game will now load straight into the main menu.

    -Updated with the 1080p videos thanks to kwyee.

    @kwyee: Sweet. Still playing Dishonored but I'll do this now to save myself time later.

    Dishonored also had a quick fix for the intro movies and now I can reload a save and be playing within 20 seconds which is fantastic. I have smart phone games that take longer to load than that.

    Wait so would this method work with ANY game or just this one specifically?

    @kishinfoulux: Yes with many games if you can find and rename the logo movies you'll load straight into the main menu. Movies are usually .bik files when it comes to games, if that helps you to locate them at all.
