2KGames released an XCOM: Enemy Unknown developer's diary to link released pictures into video. See the flow of combat and hear new info from people who know best.

Also, please check out the GameTrailers Interview as this has a LOT more footage, including a UFO!

Now it's 2013?  Used to be 2012, slipping already.   Damn.  

This looks like the coolest game EVER.

Wait wait wait, the diary says 2012. As long as Firaxis or 2K states 12 it stays that way.

EDIT: I love the hidden hyphen. And its abuse in all the names etc.

I just pee'd a little. In excitement of course.

I've got to say I love the glam cam - how many times have we all thought it would make an awesome movie? Well now it sort of is :blush:

It would be immense if you could then save an entire mission and watch it back in real-time (like replays in StarCraft II) and share the video with friends, but I think they would probably have already thought of that one so I'd be surprised if it wasn't a feature already.
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.

Have you guys seen GameTrailers' own inteview? It's another video that has some of the same footage, but also a good deal of new material. Including the appearance of the Berserker, a melee-only alien that seems to be a cousin of the Mutons.

Just watching that now Shadowblade - noticed that this bit must be from the intro as you can see from the words at the bottom-left of the screen :blush:

AND FAR MORE IMPORTANTLY THERE'S A UFO:

He's an imposter - a Muton in disguise! :)

One thing I've never done...( knock on wood ) is count the proverbial chickens before they hatch. Hey! If they don't make the Fall or 3rd quarter deadline, so be it. If they continue to fine-tune this game into something well beyond into the first or second part of 2013, we'll all love and appreciate the reasons for which they did. I think this game is going to be special. :blush:

The glam-cam headshot at 3:05 officially started my crush on this game. Time will tell...
