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?

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.

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.
I ended up making Bill Paxton and The Hologram's as my team.

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.

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.

>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.

Gameplay looks interesting, gimmick of aliens being playable since its post-war SWAT stuff.

Characters look lame, squaddies are individuals instead of generics like in previous games and not allowed to die.

Seem somewhat insufferable.

The game itself is cheap though, if you buy it on steam its 50% off.

In a sense related to the Xcom franchise, Phoenix Point is finally coming to Steam now that Gollop has finished sucking Epic's cock for payment like a quite literal prostitute.

Is it somewhat less garbage now than it was at time of release? As they package it with dlc and promised bug fixes to try and erase their previous scummy tactics.
