    The demo is out, it seems.
    At first I thought you meant "demo", but there's the button on the steam page. You're my fave for today!

    Edit: When I try to download it says error, no subscription. Perhaps the button is up before the demo?

    Edit 2: Confirmed that it's due today, but not working yet.

    I pre-ordered, and I'm certainly revved up for it. We're currently 47% of the way to unlocking a free copy of Civ 5. The fate of the world is in your hands!

    Well, now I have no excuse to not try it.

    One good thing about Steam is they can have these free trial periods. It's better than a demo.


    The first too missions really stand out, and you'll be hooked.

    Any game that starts with the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey (crank it!) is an automatic win. :)
    I wanted to like it. The variety of the missions I can't fault. I just don't see it as having replayability for me. I feel I've been through this before with the gta games and more recently sleeping dogs. Maybe at some time in the future with a deep sale, maybe.

    I'm on a very slow network right now so I can't watch the Steam videos at the moment, but I have to say that the batch of screenshots there are quite disheartening - I'm not getting a classic Xcom vibe at all. Hopefully it's just a case of the screens being picked more for their visual punch than their representation of the actual gameplay.
    Prez:
    Check out that hour long gameplay video they released recently. (skip around if you dont want to watch the whole thing). I was pleasantly surprised by how fun it looks. While it does change the formula a bit, I think they've captured a lot of what made xcom good stuff.

    Xenonauts looks like a more faithful remake, but this one looks like it will be more fun IMHO.

    Good video. Looks like I'm sold on pre-ordering
