Leave my name out of this!I think I understand what you’re trying to say about expectations, but I just don’t feel that way. It’s irrelevant to me whether you consider NFP to be like an expansion or standalone DLC or something else. My point was that all of the content up to then, regardless of whether it was an expansion or not, was more polished and coherent.
Was it perfect? No. The game has always had a problem with some of the little things, like inconsistent language describing abilities, but it was never this messy feeling, and the increasing messiness of the game’s official content is simply disappointing to me whether you call it DLC, a mod, or a marshmallow.
But I agree. I don't mind the bugginess to some extent, but I was hoping we were getting at least a new patch, the fact that the game version hasn't changed since the Negotiators is a really bad look for Firaxis because it does feel, utterly, like a cash grab for those who buy it. And a kind of "meh" middle finger for loyal fans.
I appreciate the new art, and new gameplay style, but the fact that fundemental bugs, particularly those in NFP, are still there, is bit jarring and disappointing.
