This video offers a look at a PAX Prime panel conducted by Firaxis to discuss XCOM: Enemy Unknown, their upcoming continuation of the classic XCOM series. The clip is humbly titled "A Thousand Stupid Ideas on the Road to Glory," as word is: "The four leads from Firaxis Games give attendees insight into the development process including some of the terrible ideas they thought of and ideas that stuck with moderator Geoff Keighley. Also featured in the panel are never-before-seen videos from very early versions of the game that you won't find anywhere else."

That camera man was terrible. They'd be showing something on the big screen and it would take the camera guy about a minute before realizing that he should actually look at it. Or he'd be looking at it, then go back to looking at the speakers as they're pointing out specific things on the big screen.

I assume every studio goes through a similar iteration process, but it was cool to see some of the earlier versions. Also interesting to hear about Sid Meyer stepping in a little bit. That must be great to have Sid Meyer as a resource, even to just bounce ideas off of, etc.
Looking forward to this greatly, now who has a 20-50% off code for Greenmangaming, Steam, Gamersgate, or Direct2Drive?
GMG has a 25% off code that's still working. However, it doesn't work on the North American SKU of XCOM. It does work on the European SKU, for some reason. That said, there is (or was, at least) a trade-in deal where you could save $10 on the NA version. If you own Greed on GMG, you can trade it in and get $7 off the $45 regular price. If you don't already own Greed, you can pick it up for $2 and then trade it in for a total savings of $10. I'm not sure if this trade-in deal is still valid but it worked for me 4 days ago.
