Shen's Last Gift is XCOM 2's Last DLC (for now)

Ready for more XCOM 2 DLC? I wasn't, frankly speaking, because whenever a new pack drops I get an irresistible urge to start again fresh. At this rate, I'll never see plasma weapons! And yet, the packs keep coming, with the newest one,...

XCOM 2 patch brings balance and performance tweaks

I loved XCOM 2, but even its biggest fans could agree that it needed some serious patch-love. Bugs, hitches, and some nasty difficulty spikes all conspired to keep the game from becoming the instant classic it should have been. Thankfully, ...

XCOM 2 is a frustrating game, and not just due to the infamous difficulty the franchise is known for. It's frustrating because there is an absolutely fantastic game at its core, a total improvement on what was already one of the best turn-b...
