JUST finished the game. Very nice, I enjoyed it greatly. My boy Marco the squad leader and sniper took the final shot for me too :D

What's the file extensions/name of the Xcom save games ?
I had an unfortunate situation where I had the RTM version on my laptop and then I got the cheap upgrade+free refund from acer so I did a full factory reset and did did the upgrade to final. and expected my Norton 360 backup to have actually... you know, backed up my files. but apparently it was very selective on what file it backed up.

if I have the extensions I can see if there's still a chance to recover them, though I suspect it's way to late now with all the stuff installed. and then I'll probably not end up playing again for a long time as I hate replaying games, I'm not much for that anymore.

The new expansion pack, can you continue after your saved game or do you have you have to start a new game?

The expansion, XCOM: ENEMY WITHIN, is coming out in a few days. Is anyone excited / buying it?

 

I think I'll give it a try.

I vaguely knew about it from a friend, but I only just read the review on Polygon. Sounds like it could be great fun, but I need to check my funds before taking the plunge.

I've just installed the expansion and completed the first mission so here's my verdict.

 

Casual gamers will be extremely disappointed because it's not a continuation of the story; it's a mod. Even the intro graphics are the same. It is basically the same game with a new twist to it. The tech tree is the same with a new added branch.

 

The download file is more than seven gigs. I've noticed some changes to the graphics, like the textures look more brushed up and I'm enjoying the new maps! If you are a hardcore XCOM player, this is your early XMAS present :)

Let us know how much content is involved.  They only packaged it with the full game for consoles (I have it on PS3) and if it's a really nice expansion (ala Shivering Isles or Thrones of Bhall), I'll do it.

I don't know how to measure it but this expansion basically adds new maps, units, talents, and probably buildings and items/weapons. And it adds a new tactical element where your loot depends on how fast you complete your missions. This game now favours a more aggressive play-style.
