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.
