Totally going to get it! Every problem I had with XCOM:EU (Which was far less then the Fans of the Original 90's game) is fixed! Sequential Overwatch instead of every Soldier triggering on the first grunt, Procedural Generation, Return of Training Roulette (Slightly Different Mechanics and different spot, a room instead of an option), FULL MOD SUPPORT, Endless Amounts of Customization, And a solution to "Scampering" in the form of concealment!

Check out Some info on it on the Steam Forums: ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/268500/discussions/0/537405286637410191/ )

Something super weak like a thin man killing you through 3 walls(without even breaking them) on ironman. Losing my best guy during a tough mission due to sheer RNG made me ragequit soo many times.

Definitely hope they make this a little better. I'll probably end up getting it at some point since I enjoyed the original.

XCOM EU had a lot of flaws, but I found it thoroughly addictive and replayable and the Long War mod only helped to make it even more fun to revisit. I got a lot of hours out of EU so I'll definitely be grabbing XCOM 2. Especially with them acknowledging Long War and modding in general this time around.

I still enjoy XCOM EU/EW but it gives me choppy and unstable framerates

I'm currently playing the 1st XCom. Its good (but damn those shot kills) really good. However games like this even when they are well done like XCom I just can't get into like a can with a JRPG. All the characters in western RPGs just seem to be nameless faceless individuals that I just can't bring myself to care about in the slightest.

I mean something similar like Fire Emblem or Valkyria Chronicles may have had a simplistic plot that I've pretty much seen before over and over again but it is a story and these characters have a soul that you just don't see in western RPGs. I don't want my favorite characters to die in XCom because its a powered up character. Meanwhile I don't want a certain character to die in Fire Emblem because I care about said character.

........or maybe I just have to try Mass Effect. Anyway I'll probably get XCom 2 when its cheap.

yeah the newer are more graphic does not allways mean better or this way "having many shaders is a good thing!" .. not really.
one of the reasons why people love pixel art from just the colors in Sonic, and many other titles.

Absolutely. One of my fave series ever.
I used to play part one on PS1 alot!
Part 2 (terror from the deep) also. Wasn't as good but still liked it. The first one was jus ta classic. man i put some hours into that game.

I didn't bother with an xcom game for a long time after that.
I really liked the new version of enemy unknown. Not as good as the original in some ways but really good.
Xenonautswas really really really good if any of you guys missed that one! its more like the old school xcom (like UFO defence).
Iam currently playing the bureau and whilst it took some adjusting (its knid of more like mass effect or gears of war than xcom) iam quite enjoying it.
Planning to pre order the new xcom.

if modding becomes little worth I would not buy it (or wouldn't want too, because how it are seems limited/little but good enough)

As I would love if the modding could create more tech levels + more rooms so I could have more to go on.
