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.

I have no qualms with that as long as it doesn't weaken the skill and strategy elements involved in the game to make it easy for a wider audience.

Yeah it does, nice to see you can build your base I was starting to think that it was fixed and you couldn't change it in anyway.

I really want to believe this is going to be good, but I'm unconvinced. Every attempt to remake/improve so far has been sh*t.

Yup, been playing it a bit on and off, Borderlands 2 is taking a bit of time up or I'd be playing it all the time.

Its quite good though, the missions are great but I think its laking a little bit on the geoscape side of things could do with more UFO's to shoot down, but its no biggy.

There's a few games at the moment I've been thinking of buying based on impressive reviews/youtube plays but I know for a fact I simply don't have time to play them - sadly this is one of them!
