I'm sure the devs will make sure to give the enemies their own abilities too.

Finished Enemy Within last night. Was expecting the final mission to be harder, but it was still satisfying.

So is Xcom 2 still labeled PC exclusive or confirmed multiplatform yet?

Pretty sure it's PC only and don't think that'll ever change. Guess they figured they pissed-off too many console players on EU/EW that releasing it on PS3 or XBOX would be pointless. Doesn't matter to me if they did release it on console because there's no way I'd ever give Firaxis my money again after the way they screwed console players in both EU and EW.

If you have to ask then I guess it means that you've never visited the official website for 2k games called the 2k forums. It's the official forum site for all the XCOM games and all other games published/made by 2k. I started posting on that particular forum since the first month that Enemy Unkown came out and since day one players from all 3 game platforms but especially console players (including me) were complaining about bugs that made the games nearly unplayable.



They released several patches but some of patches made game even worse because they brought bugs of their own. They finally fixed most of them from EU except MP mode was still a pain in the *** to play and leaderboards were still broken. Which is still the case in EW. Enemy Within, although a much more fun game, imo (which is saying a lot considering how much fun EU was), STILL has game-breaking bugs in both SP and MP mode which will never be fixed. The biggest issue with EW is the base defense mission going dark and crashing the game/system practically every single time if you play the PSN downloaded version. At least, that's what nearly all the console players posting on 2k forums were complaining about. I had to buy the disc after buying the PSN download to continue my games when base defense mission comes up. So I was really pissed about that but the game is so much fun and addictive that I had to.




Another major bug is the game loops indefinitely in the skyranger loading screen a lot of times when you do the Exalt base assault. Usually, I just use same workaround that I use for base defense mission. It works but it's annoying as Hell and time-consuming having to switch back and forth between the DL version and the disc.


Additionally, there's a very irritating bug in EW that was never fixed which happens a lot of times when a unit in cover suppresses an enemy. The suppressing unit will step out of his/her cover and lose the defense of it. It happens a lot in mp mode as well.




Just about every single time I have a supply barge mission the game crashes either during or after mission when skyranger is returning to base. It happens a lot on terror missions too. Honestly, I spend about as much time cussing when I play EW as I do having fun (which is a lot in SP).



I love mp mode too when it's bug free but that was rarely the case in either EU or EW. Things like flying units going invisible and staying that way even when they attack thereby being immune to being killed/destroyed was one of the things that pissed me off most about mp mode. Then there was also the fact that flying units for the client didn't work right about half the time. There were a few MP games I had in which my units would just spontaneously die for no reason when I was moving them on the first turn of match thereby giving me a HUGE disadvantage. I didn't lose very often in MP mode but the few times I did lose bugs usually played a major part in contributing to it.



These all are just a small amount of the number of complaints made by console players on the 2k forums. If you don't believe me you can check out the forums yourself. I was banned there permanently (again, lol) about a year ago after I cussed out one of the mods in a PM but it didn't really matter as I had already gotten everything I needed out of forum anyway and had gotten tired of arguing with morons who thought that shotguns/supports/heavies/SHIVs were crap or that "damn good ground" was better than "gunslinger". But, I did host a few XCOM tourneys in the MP forum before I was banned.
