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

I'm tempted to pre-order it but I'm going to need to be swayed. I'll have to check out YouTube and search for these gameplay videos. Knowing my luck nin will pop up and somehow persuade me
