He he he, great mix! Fireaxis should invest some money into the movies! Turn-based combat, naturally. ;)

The magic was broken to me the moment I recognize Charlene Therazone (whatever she's called) and the brain realizes that is just a mix of games/movies footage, but a good one.

I want a movie that tries to copy X-Com UFO style turn-based missions, would be the funniest thing ever watching actors trying to figure that out :P

The XCOM Facebook page posted a German fan film parody of the new XCOM, which is quite a laugh.

Oh my word, I could only pick out a few words of what they were saying, but that was AMAZING - well worth watching that Facebook vid.

The fake movie trailer was also good. The only question is, without turn-based missions is it really X-COM or just another action movie with aliens? I agree it would be funny to make the missions turn-based so you get the amusement of being able to stroll through a group of aliens on your turn to flank them and then shoot one in the spine.

My top-ranking sniper would be good with her "In the Zone" capability, dropping aliens like flies :)
I want to see the inside of the UFO in my avatar.

That mini panzer with a driver. That would've been so much better than the SHIV. Honestly!

NKF, narrow minded fuddy duddy who refuses to let go of the past and will not accept anything newer than 1979.

Actually, that is one of my biggest gripes with SHIVs: soldiers can't get XP. At least in the original, your squad wasn't limited to 4-6 units, so tanks weren't as limiting.

I don't build SHIVs for the same reason.

A SHIV should, IMO, be an additional unit - this would make researching it etc. much more worthwhile.
