    Wow, that was relatively fast. Nice bit of a DLC. Might have to pick the game up again.

    This makes sense. Right now it's either open ended on endless mode (with an exponential difficulty curve), or five-six missions on the regular campaign mode. There should be something in between and also a rebalancing of the final stage to account for the additional prep.

    Guess it's too late for some feedback.

    Could a codexer post the above in their steam or official forums?

    Going to give it a few runs this weekend and see how it is. Excited - this was one of the true :incline: games recently, and not just a clone of some older game either.

    Excellent news for all the angry cunts not demeaning themselves with the new Fallout.

    Anyone got a more detailed changelist? I admit, it took me by surprise a bit. Sadly, work's a bitch, so I won't be able to take it for a spin it in the next few days.

    Since Crooked Bee put a god damn JRPG on the front page, can we get this on there too? It has stats, ergo its an RPG.

    Haven't played the game yet, should I try it without the DLC first or get it right away?

    Haven't played the DLC, but I don't see why not. The major thing it does is add more mid-game - you're not going to miss anything by skipping it.

    Think of it like NOTR for Gothic 2. No real reason to play 'vanilla.' The DLC 'enhances' the base game.

    Except that's not true at all, Gothic 2 is better without the expansion.

    The pacing of the normal game is made tedious by the additional 48 hours (though it does make endless more fun) and the new second level counter measure turns maps into total rng fests. The fact that all guards suddenly change patrols so soon means you can't really plan and you need to pray. The new chars are kinda cool though.

    Honestly, I was hoping they would make a new mode rather than expand the original one. It was so tightly designed which meant it could easily be broken by new changes.

    Picked this up last weekend (w/ DLC), figured it'd be a good time to try it out. Playing on experienced (because I need to git masochistic gud first). How long is the campaign, by the way? I'm at around 30 ingame hours remaining from the main mission, and with the level 3 shield missions the enemies are becoming a lot more numerous + annoying...

    I went with Internationale and Derek to start, their abilities (ranged hacking, teleport) looked WAY better than the others. Recruited Xu and Nika so far, but the team weaponry situation is kinda sad. I have the shocker Internationale started with and managed to find a thermal shocker thing in a fabricator, but Derek's used up his dart gun's entire ammo stock (2, lol) in the first two runs, so those two tazers are all I got. At least Xu can use that EMP thing against robots and Derek can teleport plus beat some people up, but Nika only seems to be good for pinning enemies down. Internationale is a clear MVP -- ranged hacking combined with a +1 KO aug I picked up in some mission is pretty crazy. Monst3r seems to be selling mostly useless shit (if he's selling anything at all), so I've just been dumping my credits into stat upgrades, mainly speed... I may or may not have screwed up there.

    Don't suppose there's a way to reliably get more weapons / ammo (400 per charge pack seems crazy)?
