    Now that I'm coming toward the end of my time with Dishonored, I'm definitely picking this up. Never played the original.

    Hopefully they will have patched out the numerous gamebreaking bugs before you play it.

    Call me lucky but I never encountered any. I thought the doors on the final mission were bugged but I was wrong.

    Still holding out hope for community/mod support to extend game life.

    Mod wise, check out http://xcom.nexusmods.com/

    I'm currently using http://xcom.nexusmods.com/mods/27/ which is fun, balances weapons among other things so there are trade offs between them instead of flat upgrades. Makes lasers worth taking potentially.

    Hahaha I might give it a crack. Read this bit:

    Human soldiers who panic won't try to kill your own soldiers anymore (the guy who thought this was a great idea deserves to be hit by a car, hanged on a tree and shot repeatedly)
    I just had a panic cascade, one guy took 2 damage, a Sgt sniper panicked sniped my heavy the rest of the squad freaked the **** out - was all caused by the invisible spawning bug as well

    As a big fan of Advance Wars and Fire Emblem on consoles and handhelds, I'm really looking forward to playing this and stepping across/up to turn-based rpgs that are normally found on PC.

    I am even tempted with starting with the 1994 original beforehand...

    Look like some solid changes in that mod there, once I'm finished with my new play through of Terror from the deep with the extender (http://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=TFTDextender) I'll certainly take a look at it.

    Played a couple of missions with the mod so far, quite liking it.

    it's actually kinda disappointing. If you have not played the original just get that and Terror from the deep, they are better games. This is like a watered down version of the original with better graphics and a multiplayer option. I must have clocked up hundreds of hours on the originals and I still replay them every now and then. Yet I could not bring myself to play through this more than once and the first time through wasn't that great either. For me it really just lacks options and diversity. They could have done so much more with this game all they have really done is water down the gameplay and upgraded the graphics. It's ok, but this IP deserved to be epic. It could/should have been the game of the decade but as it is in 6 months time if I get an urge to play xcom I will load up an old windows xp notebook and play TFTD before I play this.

    Agree with you 100% Vulturnus.

    The fact the missions night / day cycle isn't based on what it is currently on the global map is pretty ridiculous, and the random levels of the original were one of the awesome factors of replay-ability.

    As much as I like they're rebooting the franchise, I think they missed the overall quality mark.
