It only gets better like thats possible
I'm kind of excited but I'm gonna be one of those people and say I wish it was more xD this game is so good and addicting!
That Slingshot pack sounds awesome.
Firaxis has never been very good at making DLC. The only reason I have the Civ 5 DLC is a steam sale and it all cost me maybe three dollars.
Wow alrdy that was fast :P
Awesome! Any XCOM content is welcomed by me!
Dangit! China just left my xcom project!!!
LMAO i never realized that the ability to customize my soldiers was dlc. Good thing I preordered
This is what DLC should not be! This should have been with the original game, but whoever is in charge wants to nickle and dime you with new maps and another character. I paid 60 dollars for this game. They have enough of my money. I hate this kind of DLC.
Hmmm, I bought this day one and the downloadable content it came with didnt give me anything.
this is cool but what i really want is a port to my ipad. the game would work perfect with a touch screen.
I didn't pre-order xcom and I got the elite solder pack. Hmm
