The new DLC is.
The game is still unoptimized garbage of course.
The new DLC is.

Seems strange they just released without announcing the date for it before hand
Don't tell me Shen's kid is a unit in this DLC.
Any new aliums?
that robot design
Reminds me of something…
Like alien hunters it looks like she is just a unit for one mission like Bradford was.
From the trailer it seems you just get an experimental MEC unit for your squad.
Yep, everyone called it. They didn't include mechs in vanilla 2 so they could sell it as dlc yet again.
the robotic units from the first game wore cooler
WHERE ARE MY FUCKING MECH SUITS YOU FUCKING NIGGERS?
So literally one experimental mec unit?
Why has the DLC for this been so shit?
instead of doing something like this again let's just make something that looks like Wall-E on steroids
Killing mechtoids with melee attacks was so satisfying in the first nuCOM.
Do you actually intend to sell anything here, or are you going to leave your incomplete post in shame?
shit on the game
I would post more, but I haven't played the game since February. Is that shilling too?
not Johnny Five
It doesn't matter if your post is negative or not, if you're giving market visibility to something Holla Forums would otherwise not be willing to discuss then you're effectively a shill.
I figured more of the board would get the reference. Short Circuit was definitely superior though.
If nobody was willing to discuss it, then this would be an empty thread.
I don't mind. I'm just here for the porn. Anyone stupid enough to buy games because of shills deserves the money loss anyway.
How did Shen design and create functioning MEC tech when humanity was zerg rushed before they could even design the grappling hook armor?
The aliens are already so underpowered. They rely entirely on numbers to be a challenge (which is against the game setting itself, BTW). A tank is OP. Xcom2 is so retarded and firaxis is so incompetent that i expect that mec to be able to use rounds too, and to 1shot gatekeepers. Nothing new i suppose, there isn't an enemy unit that doesn't die in one shot anyway.
I thought we were going to receive this back, guess we will have to deal with Wall E on steroids.
Fuck this shit.
There isn't an enemy that doesn't die in one shot
The game's shit but this is just blatantly false.
Calling someone a shill is effectively saying "don't talk about things I don't like."
which is against the game setting itself, BTW
How so? The aliens have superior tech and the ability to absorb casualties- they always outnumbered you in the first game. Even in UFO Defense, there are a number of times that the player will be outnumbered.
The game itself points out that the aliens are incapable of strategic thinking or tactical flexibility and rely on a psionic uplink so someone else can do the thinking for them.
The trailer says that you are going to an old advent research lab, did Shen get captured in the XCOM 2 timeline? I haven't played it in months.
So if someone regular on Holla Forums decides to make a thread about a game, he is shilling, because no one on Holla Forums (even himself) would talk about the game otherwise?
You logic is just amazing.
I thought Shen suicided instead of letting the aliens capture him?
Fuck off nigger, its time to get rid of your paranoic bullshit, hang yourself.
I'm watching someone playthrough this DLC, seems like you attack a facility and there's a crazy AI in the facility(that's jealous of Lily) that Shen had created back when first working on the Avenger but the AI was way more primitive back then and not full AI. I'm guessing it built robot servants, at least one of which you'll get as a character but I haven't finished the video yet.
Oh gee I dunno, maybe it's the fact that Firaxis has no idea how to make a good video game, let alone X-COM game. Was the first nuCOM not warning enough for you that you not only expect the sequel to be not be shit but it's "ripped out to be sold later" DLC to also not be complete shit?
You seem surprised that the same board that - for thread after thread - made excuses for XCOM being a "board game" of the original is surprised that not only was the second game unoptimized shit, but also had shit DLC
At least the first nu-com had a proper expansion pack. If this doesn't geat one, it's going from a mediocre game to a shit one.
I enjoyed both original X-COM and the new XCOM, especially with the Enemy Within stuff.
Why can't we all just talk about video games, nigga?
because when you buy and encourage you lower the bar.
This is why everything is going to shit, people except lower quality + more pricey, always thinking about how it used to be, then a new generation comes and THAT is their norm, then eventually it gets lowered for them, then THEIR next generation comes and it gets lowered even further.
75 years from now video games will probably ads on your phone you have to interact with in order to actually access your phone, on your U.S mandated Win 10 Phone with blutooth brainchip connectivity!™
What do you mean fam, standards are higher than ever. In fact, just look at the flash game scene to see how it's all progressing.
Visual novels about homosexuality
More Idle games
Clearly, the golden age is merely a myth by Nostalgic hipsters who won't grow up. Games were always this good and will be even better in the future.
Well I bought and encouraged what was in XCOM 1 because I enjoyed it and that for some reason possessed them to not give me what I bought and encouraged in XCOM 2. At this point I accept that voting with my wallet has become only a formality as suits will gamble on what they think will bring in MORE money rather than stick with what is currently paying their bills.
Anyway, you got some hot opinions there, pal.
mfw I didn't buy Xcom 2 because I knew it was going to be full of shit DLC
mfw i'm not even bothering to pirate until the GOTY edition comes out with all the DLC
Why are you telling me that you have shit taste?
Why can't we all just talk about video games, nigga?
We are talking about video games. I'm telling you that you have shit taste in them. Go play X-COM, 7.62 or JA2 and come back here and tell me that XCOM is a good game you unrepentant homosexual.
Superior in tech? Their plasma rifles have the damage output on xcom mag rifles. Where is the superior tech? In xcom 2 you play guerrilla warfare. You strike there where it hurts and it should be unexpected. Advent and aliens should be thougher and they shouldn't have more than two or three pods on the map, with reinforments coming later. I have few ideas about rebalancing the game, but i don't care enough to put them down. This game doesn't deserve to be modded out of its shittiness.
3 tiers of tech
Small squad size
No bullet simulation
Cover is a stat boost
Awful space crashes
Pod based spawning
Clearly more useful perks
So it's a mirror of the steam workshop?
Go play X-COM
he says to the guy who just said he likes X-COM
implying it is ever not worth replaying
especially if you have XCOM in your memory
You're trying to save face and it isn't working.
I'm on an anonymous image board. You really think I give half a shit about "saving face"?
mfw I didn't buy XCOM2 because it's priced 80 sheckels and now it has a measely -40% discount putting it at a normal priced game of 50 sheckels.
mfw I bought EW for 14
Apparently, since you seem to be trying to do it.
You could have bought Space Rangers 2 3 times for that money.
Greentext at me more, nigga. You ain't changing my opinions.
No I won't change your beliefs, you believe Nu-com to be good so you will convince yourself of it.
We are now consumers who worship what we consume, good job buddy.
What is it of this you wish to discuss, then, user?
Apparently you can build infinite number of these things in the proving grounds if you have the resources. These things seem overpowered as fuck, at rookie form you get access to heavy weapons(rocket launcher is default), the ability to hack, and a cooldown ability that lets you take three actions in that turn. So you can fire your rocket and shoot twice.
Upgrades you can get include armor, stronger heavy weapons, ability to destroy cover/walls just by walking through them, melee attacks that can be used when dashing like the ranger's, aoe grenades, ability to heal other robotic units, an ability that gives you a 1/3 chance at a free overwatch shot when you reveal a pod, an ability that makes all shots targeting soldiers reflect to the bot while also giving the bot temporary higher armor and defense, and an ability with no cooldown but that does a bit of damage to yourself that damages all enemies around you.
Really not seeing why someone wouldn't just make an army of these things when you get access to them.
I just enjoy seeing people shitposting about video games.
At least with MECs in Long War, they were a bit more specialised and every MEC type had a different role.
It sound like they didn't quite think things through with this DLC. Can a team of three of these beat an Alien King?
If they can get armor shredding abilities you can probably take a team of three with a frost grenade and kill a ruler
Probably, depends on actual damage output of their abilities like the melee and aoe burst. Thing that hurts them the most against alien rulers is that their ability that gives them their most offensive power by giving multiple actions in a turn would be useless. I'd bet they could at least chase it off and kill it later but less sure about killing it in the first encounter.
they have rockets so yeah, they have armor shredding.
DLC so shit they didn't even announce it before release
Released two months earlier than projected because the ideas behind it were so weak, or because they just couldn't be assed to finish making it
This was supposed to be "the big one", xcom 2's enemy within
The MECs we were looking forward to aren't sweet ass robot suits for your awesome soldiers, they're dumb ass robot suits for your retarded gremlins
Jinkies, gang, it looks like the monster was actually just a giant middle finger this whole time!
Firaxis comes out with a new Expansion pack for nu-Com 2
It's Blood and Gore DLC
And Anarchy's Children 2, now with Superhero costumes
mfw pirated this at launch because had a bad feeling about it
the launch torrent was so fucking broken that I assumed there had to be something wrong with the torrent itself, no possible way even a shitty company like Firaxis would have put out such a blatantly unfinished product
nope, even the retail goys were getting the redscreens and various performance errors all around
try to ignore it and enjoy the game
talking heads yelling at you nonstop, constantly dragging you out of the action
totally fucking retarded time limits on missions, garbage tech progression, overall bad game
i'm glad i got that gut feeling about this. i actually liked nucom 1 but goddamn this piece of garbage is total fucking shit
I'm glad I pirated it when it came out, too, because man was it such a massive step down. What the fuck happened?
he probably only played a couple missions where all the advent fuccbois are 3 hp
snake tits and autist hype.
Also them promising a PC exclusive when in reality the game was so fucked up PC was the probably only game they could get it relatively playable on.
More than likely the first game was just a fluke
I don´t care what everybody says. I had fun with IS-Com. Could use better optimization of course.
Johnny #5 in house!!!!!!!
Fuck you Firaxis
Wow the latest patch actually made the performance even fucking worse, holy shit, I averaged 45-50 FPS pre update with everything on minimal and with the Resolution at 1280x720, now I average 25
My guess is that he just saw a repeater compilation video and got the impression that its something that triggers often. Shit's unreliable and I don't even put it on my guns because I prefer things that are..
Fuck, forgot to remove flag.
DLC is released
one fucking MEC suit
breaks all the mods that made this game somewhat decent
Pretty much this. I mean, they namedropped cryo grenades at E3 as part of the base game, then they mysteriously disappeared and returned as a "special item" in the Alien Hunters DLC.
Firaxis jewing aside, the game will probably be pretty alright once we get the real expansion pack they are working on as we speak. It's already decent once you cobble together the right mix of mods, just missing some content and variety to flesh it out a bit more.
After looking at some gameplay you can make multiple MEC prototypes, but their skills are OP as fuck. One of the only things that can't do is pick up bodies and you can only repair one at a time.
the game will probably be pretty alright once we get the real expansion pack they are working on as we speak
Source on that? I thought this was the last DLC for this game.
I am too lazy to dig up the actual thread, but a while back there were entire new areas and models found in the modding SDK. I think they were added with Anarchy's Children. They are marked as "XPACK", whereas Shen's Gift stuff was marked as DLC90 (literally the 90 day DLC). It was either that or they would be working on the sequel. So it's pretty much 100% that as of the time of Anarchy's Children release they were working on the expansion at a production level.
So we got a meh cosmetics pack, a horrible bullshit pack and a new class. Gee I'm glad I didn't get the Reinforcement Pack.
Game's still fucked anyway from a design perspective.
The Reinforcement Pack costs like 1 dollars alone and it was and I think still is sold together with the game for 30 with no better deals on the market. My guess is you have already paid more for the base game alone.
The game was absolute garbage to begin with
