My only question is WHY are they insisting that they can improve upon the combat resource mechanics by throwing out time units? Every "spiritual successor" has been a let down because they threw out the old combat system.

Still it does look like it could be pretty good. It almost looks too cartoony, but I'm reserving judgment.

Could be good, could be shit.

I'm not gonna be Charlie Brown and try to kick the "oh they're remaking something cool so the remake will be cool too!" football.

We've only seen that turn into disappointment like 8,000 times before.

My biggest complaint is that there are classes for soldiers (sniper, assault, etc) that is not changeable and each has unique special abilities (some activated).

Still, Firaxis is a pretty good company.  I'd be hard pressed to recommend a better company to do the remake instead.

P.S.  We actually had a thread back in January, but it's in the achives: http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=1273834

Its legit, from what I have seen they are staying with the DOS gameplay with a little update here and there.

*typo, gameplay not graphics, duh

I like the base design thing.  I was worried they'd throw out all the strategic elements that made the first game such a classic.

I see that the game is going to be "ESRB Rated M for Mature: Blood and Gore, Strong Language, Violence."

Good sign, IMO.
