I was going to go for europe, more countries covered at once and the research bonus. Gonna go Classic / Ironman my first playthrough...things gonna get dicey!

I was thinking the same thing, except I'll be starting on Normal Ironman. I want to play at least 1 game to get a feel for the mechanics before I dive into Classic.

I'm going with Classic (dunno about Ironman) because the gameplay is a little different between normal and classic and I don't want to get used to the normal stuff. The three main changes I know of are:

1) Some aliens have more health, which changes things up because of what is required to kill them. For example, Thin Men have 4 health instead of 3, meaning a basic grenade can't kill them on classic.

2) Your base starts with less stuff on classic.

3) There's a limit on the number of aliens that will engage you on normal, potentially resulting in enemies retreating from combat if there are too many other aliens around.

Also, as far as Dishonored goes, I know nothing about that game. There have been all kinds of previews and gameplay videos and interviews about XCOM, but almost nothing about Dishonored.
