Well War of the Chosen is really more like Xcom 3 than an expansion, so if you get Xcom 2, you might want to play through vanilla first.

I am sometimes fine with DLCs, but sometimes I just want that complete experiance from the start

It's not about complete experience per se, with War of the Chosen, it's about getting a very different one. While getting the full experience seems to be a good choice, I'd recommend playing vanilla (perhaps with the couple of DLC released for it) and only when you're done with that giving War of the Chosen a shot.

At any rate, waiting and buying a fully patched version of a game cheaper is always a good choice, unless you want to support a dev/game.

Edit: Hurlshot'd.

Not gonna lie, Rage 2 looks like Fallout that Bethesda always wanted to be

 

Not sure about that, two very different types of games. Still though, I wonder what this means for Fallout. My thought is they are rebuilding their production pipeline for TES around new tech, maybe even id's tech, and hopefully Fallout will be hibernating alongside it.

Looks freakin' awesome!

 

Looks like MadMax on crack and steroids, I like the vibe of the trailer, but I am little bit affraid of the Open World design...

 

I am maybe to old, but I really prefer small scale levels, with unending action, like Doom 4, Hard Reset or Quake 2, than wast openness, where you have to search for an action for half an hour or more... I would love to see a proper balance between these two factors. I really am unable to imagine quality open world, without checkbox design, with uninterupted flow of shooting mayhem... But I hope that id and Avalanche, can raise the bar of the genre with this game higher than Ubisoft ever could.

Heck yeah. I loved the first RAGE, so I'm very happy that there making a second one. This makes me

 

want to revisit RAGE 1 and do a new playthrough, since it's been a few years since I played this last.

Well that trailer looks completely different to what Rage was, so I wouldn't expect there to be much connection, except for a couple weapons and enemy types maybe. It's probably going to be like old Prey and new Prey, or old Return to Castle Wolfenstein and the new ones, etc. I'm pretty sure this is going to be a Mad Max, Borderlands and Fallout mix, set in the Rage universe.

Does remind me of Borderlands, but must just be the way the trailer's presented more than anything else.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, though. The new Prey was an amazing game.

I doubt RAGE 2 will have random loot, to me it looks more like a marriage between the original RAGE and DOOM 4. The game does look like RAGE 1 in some ways: the buggy is still there, same goes for the the Wingstick and Mutant Bash TV. Gameplay is very similar to DOOM 4 though.

 

I am also one of the dudes who happened to enjoy the original RAGE a whole lot. One of these days I might replay it because I never got to play The Scortchers dlc.

Not saying it's a bad thing, just saying that it doesn't look like Rage to me... at all. :>

Spiced with a little bit of Bulletstorm.

Didn't most of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. team end up elsewhere by now. So it's basically a game using the name but made by different people? Or am I getting that wrong? Not sure if I should be excited or scared right now, so I'll just go for both. :aiee:

I just don't get the attraction of the wastelander/punk aesthetic. Never will. A generic form of ugly.

Rage, Brink, Bulletstorm, Borderlands, Mad Max, Fortnight, Sunset Overdrive

 

It's certainly not uncovered ground. Execution is really what I think will make this game.

The whole studio was basically shut down for a few years so it would be pretty much a new team unless some return. Having said that, the people who left largely seemed to be obsessed with turning Stalker into a MP game except the Metro guys who left earliest, and Sergei G himself seems to have a decent idea of what made Stalker memorable.

 

They have done Cossacks 3 since re-opening which seems a poor fit for Stalker, but then again they'd only (?) done Cossacks1/2 prior to StalkerSoC as well and that didn't do it much harm, ultimately.

I believe most of the team either went to join the Metro guys at 4A (which then moved to Malta.) Or went to Vostok to work on Survivarium. A few people went on to make some indie puzzle game that was sort of pitched like a Myst, I totally forget the name and don't know if it ever came out.

It was called Cradle, and it did manage to come out. And in spite of my distaste for most games of that form, I quite enjoyed it and highly recommend it to everyone here.
