I am very excited for this game, I have 490 hours on the previous XCOM.  So I'm imagining spending a lot of time with this new one on Steam! 

Anyone else looking forward to it?

I doubt I will be getting it. I was disappointed with the last one.

Bummer, but what disappointed you about it?  The lack of depth compared to the previous versions?
I really enjoyed it, especially once Long War mod came out and added so much to the game and upped the difficulty a lot.

Well, it's been quite a while... but if I recall I didn't like how you were just expected to lose soldiers. I prefer more of RPG style where you build up a team and then are able to actually keep them alive throughout the campaign. The missions got very tedious after a while if I remember correctly, with not enough variety. Oh, and I thought the combat had many instances that felt cheap where you didn't really have options to avoid triggering certain events from killing people.

I don't know... these are just my personal gripes. A lot of people loved it, and I think most would say it was a very good game.

I agree with everything you said, those things all happen and are good points. I think I just got used to the idea of not being too attached to any one soldier. :)

I'll definitely update this after I've played the new one more.

My soldiers weren't killed off TOO often and you always had the choice to try and re-do the mission if you lost someone you really wanted to keep.  Loved XCom: Enemy Unknown so I will be picking this up for sure.

Rieryn,

I will take you on in multiplayer.  I will have no idea what Im doing but it should be fun.

Sounds good Kanzig, I never played the XCOM EU multiplayer, so it is new to me too! :)
