Thin Men are Modded Vipers. Well that explains a few things. But makes for more questions.

Only thing I've done is mess with the hex edit for a few supplies so I don't get stuck just because the game rolled against me.

I've just been spending a massive amount of time planning out what recruits I'm going to make when we finally get the game.
I've got Dutch's team from Predator lined up, the cast from resident evil, an ex-member of EXALT wearing their bandana that's been shown as an option along with other originals etc etc.

Anyone else been doing that?

I'm going to spend an ungodly amount of time making everyone from Miles O'Brien to Artorias to the entire cast of World Trigger.

The fact they've expanded the scale of customization so much as well as letting you save them to your "Character Pool" and even share the characters with others is a pretty nice addition to the sequel.

Create a team of Dwarfs. Either it will be impossible to headshot them or the game will fling them off into space trying to connect with their hitbox

Goddamn I've played this game so hard last night I fucked up my eyes! Worth it, but I'm still a little lost when it comes to running a resistance movement, worried I might end up screwing myself over when the aliens really start ramping up their own stuff.

Steam controller paying for itself on this one.


Load time on missions is chunky, no controller support, otherwise it's great.

Enforcer was a fun arcadey game, they need to bring that bot back and weld it into the modern canon, have him solo the entire next alien invasion!

Or y'know someone goes and mods Enforcers into Xcom2, that would work as well.

I've got no problem with it. Yeah, some of the pieces are kinda stupid-looking, but it also plugged a lot of empty spaces in terms of cosplay-character creation. The added hair options alone were a godsend.

No it didn't. The only DLC available on day one was the resistance pack, which was a pre-order bonus (and frankly, kind of nothing). Anarchy's Children didn't come out until mid-March, a month and a half later.

Is Xcom 2 going to get anymore expansions?

>Soldiers are shown socializing with one another on the Avenger. However, this isn't just window dressing; the game actually tracks the relationships between each soldier, based on factors like how many missions they've been on together, who has healed who, shooting enemies flanking them, and carrying unconscious soldiers out of battle. It then matches those soldiers up while on the Avenger. So when you see soldiers laughing and talking in the bar or exercising together in the guerilla warfare school, it's because those soldiers have actually become Fire-Forged Friends in battle.

Is this actually a thing? Read it off of Tvtropes.
If its actually a feature built into the system that is actually pretty damn awesome, its such a hidden thing that nearly everyone is going to overlook but they did it anyway.
