Anyone mind if all the Bureau stuff is moved to The Bureau: XCOM Declassified?

Under "Development Gag" for Enemy Unknown, just what am I supposed to see in the negative space?

It's the missing hyphen. The game is titled X-COM, not XCOM.

Regarding the Thin Men...

'They are also the remakes version of the original's Snakemen, and indeed possess snakelike aspects.'

Has the bolded part actually been stated somewhere? If yes, where?

It's all but directly stated. The thin man autopsy (viewable in some preview videos) notes that they have venom sacs, their bones are all segmented like vertebrae, and that they were clearly engineered into a humanoid shape from "some other lifeform." It's either a massive easter egg for fans of the series, or a hint at an unrevealed enemy/DLC/sequel bait.

Maybe we should break the X-COM page into at least a couple more, seeing as how it currently encompasses no less than seven games?

I propose a page for the original trilogy (since the first two are essentially the same game and the third builds off the first), a page for Enforcer and Interceptor (spinoffs from the same era released shortly after each other), a page for the FPS (in case it ever comes out it's going to be very different from the rest), and a page for the reboot/make (since it seems to be reworking/reexamining all the tropes and elements of the first game, if not trilogy).

I would support that. Also, suggest it be titled Franchise.X Com for ease of linking, custom titled to X-COM.

"That being said, the fandom's response to the reboot was heavy enough that Firaxis Games (a subsidiary of 2K and the developers of the Civilization series) has announced X-COM: Enemy Unknown"

Is this an accurate statement, given that Enemy Unknown was undoubtedly already in production when the shooter was announced?

It should be noted that recent changes in language in 2K Marin interviews (It's now an "Origin Story") may imply that their shooter has recently been re-tooled into a prequel to the original X-Com (which would induce Fridge Logic) or XCOM: Enemy Unknown (which might be more acceptable).

They've been saying that XCOM is an origin story for at least a couple years now. THIS IS NOT A NEW DEVELOPMENT!

Think we could do something about all the bitching and nerd-rage in the reboot section?

One liveblog is still in the main namespace. Any way of recovering it?
