Seldom see a game with so much replay value even after so many years. Just listening the background music reminds me 'oh...those days with X-com'. Can't wait to feel the thrill again! O_o

If you recognise the reference embodied by my username, you'll understand why I'm excited for this game. ;)

Can't wait for this one to come out. Everything I've seen so far has been beautiful, but I'd love to see some extended gameplay videos. Watching these made me start playing the old X-COM again. So much nostalgia ^.^

 Get the PC version as long as you're sure your system will be able to run it. They've already stated on the forums the PC version will have a "better PC friendly UI" and a few other minor tweaks that will make it more likely to live up to the original.

 

Granted, I know they carried over the original X-Com to the Playstation and even some other devices, but they didn't have to change the game any to make that happen. Hopefully they don't dumb down our beloved X-Com for the "can I winz now?!?!?!" generation of gamers who don't know what real challenging game-play is all about.
