I'm getting a bit deflated reading about some of the changes coming to it (mainly, it seems, to cater for console users) which is a sad thing. But who knows, maybe it can live up to the hype and hope of many.
Not as I read them. They are modern day lessons learned, how you play today changes. I love XCOM but you also have to not forget all its flaws. Play it again now and you will see them again. Trimming a lot of that stuff out should be better for it.
Making it also playable on a console is also a given really. They sell the most, if your a company only doing PC is a bit daft in this day an age if you want to make money.
