XCOM: Enemy Unknown Panel Video

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."

I have been seeing quite a few comments pooh-poohing Xenonauts and similar Xcom clones for being so similar as to be unnecessary. Maybe I'm weird but the idea of paying a game exactly like the original Xcom but with better graphics and an improved UI is exactly what I have been wanting since forever. I preordered Xenonauts to help the devs and if I could choose whuch game I could have right this second between it and Firaxis' reimagining I'd choose Xenonauts. I'll undoubtedly be getting both, but as it stands right now I am more excited about Xenonauts.

I didnt mean to come off sounding like i was bashing Xenonauts. More that i'm just excited that the official remake is coming along so well that i dont think i'll be paying much attention to Xenonauts and others of the like. Thats not to say that i'm not happy that Xenonauts is being made, i'll probably buy it at some point. I'm also happy that there's always that fallback incase all the indications that the Xcom remake is not up to snuff. You can never have enough tactical TBS games, that i am certain of.
