I'm looking forward to this re-make of a classic.

I am very much looking forward to it too.
Game Informer has some great info on it: Game Informer's February Cover Reveal - XCOM Enemy Unkown

Actually, watching those videos just inspired me to reinstall TFTD

I have been watching this very closely , I think it will be amazing espically since they had their developers play the first before and during the initial design work.

This is going to be an awesome game and the main reason is that all the development team were introduced to, and got hooked on, the original game and could not put it down. I was sitting in a hotel room tonight and played a bit of the original game before dinner, and now I'm going to hit it again. Five o'clock in the morning is going to come early... again. Can't wait for this game to show up!

Its why I downloaded the original on my PC via Steam to play. Amazing game, and the fact that he is making them play the original its even better.
