Enemy Yours: Watch An Hour Of The XCOM Remake

I'm about to conduct another interview with Firaxis on the subject of their upcoming X-COM remake, and fortunately I go in armed with the knowledge lent me by watching around an hour of live-streamed footage. You can watch it too, because you are dear to me. It includes two missions of the game (one of which is a Terror Mission) and a wander around the base, narrated enthusiastically by three Firaxicons, and it's meant that all the various elements I've heard about the game, both changed and reverential, finally fell into place. I understand, now, how this thing works. And I think it looks really rather fine - whether or it not it's entirely X-COMmy, it is definitely a game I want inhabiting my hard drive. Here, take a look for yourself.

I especially liked the bagpipes.

Thanks to Kadayi for sending that my way. Now, I go to ask a man some questions.
