One thing that I realized about the trailer, the sniper rifle that the sharpshooter has is an "upgraded weapon type".  The style of it reminded me of a certain movie.  A very certain movie.  A movie, I might add, Jake Solomon has gone on record that he is planning to "steal a $*!&load of stuff from that movie".

Making me think, considering that XCOM is more a rebel force this time around, that anything they reverse-engineer isn't going to be nice and shiny like it was the first game.  Might look a lot more bare-bones, more like... a Neill Blomkamp movie.

I am suddenly even more excited now.

...

Oh, and by the way, it seems like there is already fanart of the Viper alien.  Naturally, because internet.  Roll Eyes

Battleborn Trailer - For Every Kind of Badass

Yes, that is an eagle man with a rocket launcher.  In case you didn't realize what the Peacekeepers were based after.

IGN Rewind Theater, featuring Jake Solomon (Creative Director) and Garth DeAngelis (Lead Producer)

Which confirms many of my reactions, including weapon upgrading and customization.  Also, those are magnetic rifles Advent are using, not lasers.  Good to know.

Woooo!  Is it churlish of me to want most of these features brought back to Enemy Unknown/Within?

Not at all.  Funny thing about these types of games, one always starts to wish that they could take the developed systems they come up with in the sequels, and port them back to the original setting that starts it all.

This time, though, they are fully supporting modders, most likely with a full program suite to make the workload easier.  Maybe someone will try to re-create EU's campaign using the new assets?

IGN: Welcoming Our New Alien Overlords

One of my favorite parts:

We can now swap genders and set nationalities to our liking – if you want an all-female, all-Portuguese team, you can do that. What’s more, we’ll be able to tweak the look of the right and left arms, torso, pants, and headgear individually, drawing from a larger selection of pieces designed to give this version of XCOM a more ragtag, scavenged look and feel.

Yep, no more rolling dice on who you get.  You fully control who your characters are.

Seems Bethesda may be teasing an announcement  tomorrow http://fallout.bethsoft.com/

Geez, isn't this the gaming geek week.

You know what's funny?  They announce XCOM 2 the DAY BEFORE Heroes of the Storm officially releases.  Now I'm all divided and stuff on what to be excited about.  Tongue
You can be excited about Heroes of the Storm now, and be excited for X-Com all fall.  Isn't Beyond Earth: Rising Tide going live in the fall too?

Sure is!  Between Aliens taking over Earth and Earth taking over Alien Worlds... mankind is going to have a very busy fall!

Oooooh, just had a thought: What if they are making this the canonical Great Mistake?  Mankind surrenders to the aliens, XCOM frees Earth, then the years leading up to colonization are the recovery years.  That's the one I'm gonna stick to, at least.

So.

XCOM 2.

Whew, you have no idea how happy I was hearing that news.  It somewhat helps that I suffered a really crappy session of HotS before I heard about it, so I was up for any good news.

So, now that I've finished my happy dancing, and had a chance to sleep things off, my reaction to the trailer:

So.. XCOM 2 is real.  Comes out in Nov-2015.  Aliens have subjugated the Earth and you're the rebels.  

...and suddenly all of Koala's players want to go back to Spycraft 2.0 one last time...  (Assuming Spycraft 3 arrives by the next time we have a Modern Urge.)

Wait, what?

*trailer*

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!?!?!!?!?

...

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
