Unfortunately I am away over the weekend but maybe Sunday Night I can play the game. Every review so far is at least a 9 out of 10. One reviewer even said that the game is so good that we would play it forever.
post #4 of 108
Is it really going to be 45gb just to install Xcom 2? Or is that an estimation? I'm hoping it'll be around 15 or 20gb at least. I can't spare 45gb man, but I wanna play Xcom 2 so badly as well.

I think its 22ish but you need 45 to unpack it.

Xcom 2 can go up to 75 if you want the game assets to play around with if you want to try your hand at modding.

Definitely. I want to preorder it so badly.

I'm almost finished with the first one, I'm on what I'm pretty sure is the last mission.

OCN is dissapointing me a lot lately. Its like people dont care about games but hardware and totally forget that hardware is there to play the games redface.gif

I started the thread few days ago and was suprised that there was no thread to begin with until now.

This is Xcom 2.

Yeah... XCOM: Enemy Unknown with Enemy Within seems like a perfect turn-based strategy game but this seems way better. The best just got better, it seems. I preordered it last month, just got my code now. OCN actually has more casual gamers than some would expect (despite their admirable hardware enthusiasm), if you look at the most talked about games most are quite casual.

If it isn't BF4, TW3, CoD, or some absurdly dumbed down game nobody on OCN cares. I can't f'n wait for XCOM 2. I'm all in!
