Want to skip the intro videos?
../steam/steamapps/common/XCom-enemy-Unknown/XComGame/Movies

Delete/rename the following:
1080_ESRB.bik
1080_Logo_2KFiraxis.bik
1080_LogoLegal_PcConsole_*.bik
1080_UE3TechLogo.bik
UE3TechLogo.bik
E3_shield.bik
ESRB.bik
Logo_2kFiraxis.bik
LogoLegal_PCConsole_*.bik

I typically just change the file extension, and it lets me get right into the main menu. No fuss.

Thank you. I can't freaking stand unskippable logos and cutscenes.

Worth a shot, those scenes can be quite cumbersome

Or you can download XCOM Toolboks, which lets you skip the intro movies and the annoying revealed alien cutscenes, among many other things.

Thanks, good tip.

There's a much better way, in that it won't be undone whenever the game needs to update (and won't cause Steam to redownload those files, if you are bandwidth constrained):

Go to My Documents -> My Games -> XCOM - Enemy Unknown -> XComGame -> Config
Open the file XComEngine.ini
Search for and delete the 4 entries that contain "StartupMovies" and save the file.

I'm glad I did a search before posting this myself.
Straight into menu, only had to rename:
Logo_2KFiraxis
LogoLegal_PCConsole_INT
UE3TechLogo

I like your method better though, morbo. Will make for a cleaner uninstall.

You can also right click the game, properties, launch options and set

-nostartupmovies

No more of those

Wow that's actually the cleanest and best way to do it I think! Thanks!
