Legends of the Wasteland is superb

I' m about 3 hours into the campaign, and I've been having a good time.  Fun combat, and interesting side things to keep me busy.
 
But then I booted up the co-op disc with my buddy and hot damn... I can't believe how intense it is (on nightmare, anyway).  Pretty much every battle requires constant communication, with some of the smartest AI I've encountered since Fear.  It obviously doesn't run as smoothly, but between the constant gunfire and couch swearing, I quickly stopped caring.  What I thought was an afterthought became an incredibly engaging part of the experience, with some cool little story added in to flesh out the world.
 
I'm kind of curious if the campaign gets this crazy later on, but for now I'm just crossing my fingers for more co-op via DLC.  Anyone else a huge fan of this?

yeah, there will be more DLC not only for MP but also SP. DLC is all counted for both. by the way, I just finished it by myself. no co-op. solo play. I was fine.

Any info on the DLC? What it is, when it's coming etc.

All I heard was that it will be based on player feedback.  So I guess this topic is my part in all this?

@MetalMoog: well, it's ID software. they actually care about customers like us. so DLC will be coming out sooner than we think. I am about 85% positive.

Didn't they say they'll add a standard death-match mode if most players wanted that?

I find Legends to be pretty weak on the whole. The scenarios range from pretty decent to pretty bad, with there being only 3, maybe 4 that I don't actively want to not play again. The time limited ones are especially unenjoyable to me as I don't think being rushed to accomplish an objective is a fun way to play this game. And the gameplay is so straightforward and the environments so small and tight that there's not much dynamism to any of it, so playing through even the scenarios I did like again doesn't have much appeal.

I don't really care for how item pickups are handled, either. Rationing out who gets what is not very fun in this game to me. It always feels more like you're choosing who isn't getting short-changed, as opposed to who is getting specialized equipment or better ammo to use.

I only liked 2 things about it.
 
1) They're seperated into pretty manageable bite size pieces so that you can get a quick co-op fix which is nice.
2) They all have some kind of backstory that ties into and helps flesh out the world. 
 
Other than that, i wouldn't say there's much special about it.
