XCOM Enemy Unknown

G4's stalwart game previewer Miguel Concepcion has his boots on the ground at Gamescom 2012, and hasw brought back a preview of upcoming RTS XCOM: Enemy Unknown. The game is meant to appeal to fans of the original XCOM series, as well as bring new converts to the XCOM fold.

Here's a little bit of our XCOM: Enemy Unknown preview:
