Modernized Guile hair!
@michael the creator it's totally worth getting however you can
YESYESYESYES! I don't know how long I've played, I just know XCOM owns my Saturdays. Three maps can't hurt, although I'm mildly worried about receiving this mission in every playthrough... Kind of wrecks the procedural nature of Council missions and most in general, but I guess I didn't mind some story (I LOVED the debate from the doctors about if the war has forced man to evolve beyond his natural ability, and if we're essentially creating a future of warmongers with purely offensive tech. That was the hardest I ever thought about improving the capabilities of my soldiers.) and this Zhang character seems like he could be intriguing... But once again, I don't know. I prefer projecting myself (and my friends) onto my soldiers and watch them develop rather than utilizing a BA I have no connection to... I leave my fate in your loving arms, Firaxis. Please keep the DLC coming.
This will likely be my next game purchase, especially if the DLC adds more maps (since it seems the map repetition was mentioned in most reviews). Still, Borderlands 2 has so much content. Might not have time until summer....
This is one game I wish had a Season Pass.
This sounds like a lot. Can't wait to get my hands on it!
This is great! I've been playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown nonstop.
i love the game but what an uninspired waste of money this dlc is.
I already got the soldier pack, but what is the price for the first Slingshot pack?
