Am I the only one looking forward to this game?

I saw this video a while back, but now seems like a good chance to share it with those who may not have:


Wish I paid more attention in German class to understand what they're saying, but it's also a pretty nice gameplay demonstration. Maybe I've missed some news on this one, but I didn't realize it had such a tasty menu of autopause options, which you can see in English at approximately 6:25. No "pause every turn," a la BG2, that I would like, but this menu coupled with manual pause should leave me in pretty decent shape.

I remember reading enemies would be visible across the entire map at all times, but proper line of sight seems to be in. Note the options to autopause when a player spots an enemy and when an enemy spots a player. In the outdoors, a couple of enemies do appear to pop into view due to line of sight. Also, at the end of the video, a player character goes down a ladder and runs into an enemy machine gunner, who destroys the player before he can scrabble back up the ladder.

Looked like some decent character stats, inventory and recruitment. Also saw overhead damage numbers. All of that and the strategic overview map all looked pretty reminiscent of JA2 to me, though it has been a while since I played it.
