$20 Season Pass confirmed for XCOM 2

Since XCOM 2 is a AAA game that exists, it is getting a Season Pass. This one, though, is a lot easy to swallow than the vast majority of publisher's "Mystery Passes" that I loathe so much. 2K Games is calling it the "Reinforcement Pac...   read

XCOM 2 Dark Events offer 'dramatic gameplay changes'

One of my favorite things about XCOM: Enemy Unknown was that it lets you fail, so I kind of love that XCOM 2's canon centers around the Commander having failed in the first go and now needing to oust our alien overloads off of Earth. Firaxi...   read
