I have to agree with the advise itt to finish a vanilla run first. I did that on Rookie and had a blast, and have now started a normal run on the WotC. The macro game is pretty damn overwhelming for sure, and the options and choices, and threats to assess can feel very intimidating. I think I'll be ok because of things I learned playing the vanilla though, combat-wise for sure. But how to deal w/the Chosen and that Advent meter simultaneously is worrisome. Still such a good game and expansion. I love this game and I played XCOM EU and finished it but never felt this hooked.

Yeah I felt like the PvP was a tacked on mode, and sorta filler for when PvE gets stale in D1, and it seems much the same in D2. Strangely, this thread has left me with a strong hankerin' for some BTB.

If it's who I most align with and trust for judgments on games @ GB, it's easily Jeff. Of the games he has reviewed and I have played a lot of, I either agree with his scores and assessments or we're like one point off. There's an outlier in the books somewhere no doubt, but that's how I've felt about his reviews on games many, many times. As far as game genre preferences, it's either Jeff or Vinny I guess, but Vinny does like the weird and broken stuff way more than me, but that rpg love is strong.

My game works fine but I'm playing from disk. Apparently the crash 'bug' or whatever caused by the latest patch affects the digital version of XCOM 2. You are not alone, check the game feed, many people have angrily commented about this issue. MS and 2K know, it should get sorted soon. I hope soon cuz I'm about to finish the vanilla campaign and would love to play that sweet WotC DLC. It's also borked due to the last patch. Hang in there, the game's worth it...very impressed with it and like it quite a bit more than XCOM EU.

In my game(XBOX ONE)it says Lincoln Force has 4 members...wtf? Can't get the list of members to work either. Also, all the clan links in this thread are broken. I'd like to join an XBOX clan w/more members, or maybe this clan functionality isn't working yet. Any updated info would be much appreciated if anyone knows whatup.

It's all about Dan as usual. I doubt he even considered what he was doing until Vinny questioned him. And Dan's portrayal above is fucking classic, kudos op.

For such a huge game world, I think Destiny 2 looks phenomenal. Love the art, and the environmental touches and details are fantastic. I have some problems with other aspects of the game but the graphics are a significant strength ; it's a gorgeous game period. And I like that the gear starts off plain. Like most rpgs/arpgs btw, and that way you really can lust after those legendary and exotic pieces later on.

It's almost all about SC2 for me. I'm totally hooked on watching the world's best play in the various leagues, WCS, GSL, and Blizzcon every year. So damn entertaining, and amazing things happen constantly. That PUBG International was pretty fun to watch too...there'll be much more of that I'm guessing. All the main fps/tps stuff I find pretty boring and I can't stay engaged so I don't even bother anymore.

BTW: WCS finals today in Montreal: Neeb v True, and Elazer v Snute. Neeb could win 3 of the 4 tournaments today...something amazing there. Catch it on Twitch, should be good.

Absolutely. Now that they're going hard at a story, it seems really dumb, like your character is mute and can only shake his head. Should have been voiced. Such a silly design choice, like there's no way they didn't notice. Maybe they requested a voice actor and Acti said no, lol.

I just bought Xcom 2 for xbox one and it runs great, no bugs so far, 20 or so hrs. in, and I like it much more than Xcom EU, which I played to completion. Looking forward to the WotC DLC if they ever get it sorted for console(preloads caused the vanilla game to crash at title screen apparently). There's definitely a learning curve, but it's been a very pleasant surprise for me. Can barely pull it out of the box to install Destiny 2.
