I always wanted to have options for the original weapons the soldiers use, f.ex two types of pistols: one scoped revolver that has high criticals and high damage, but a low clip, and one high capacity clipped pistol that is easy to hit with but does lower damage etc. etc.
Will there be any new weapons in this add-on?

When playing X-com, I always care very much for my soldiers- when/if they die, I take it very personally. Sometimes I even restart the game (always playing on "hardcore"/"ironman"). But I sometimes feel the customization-options were a -bit- limited. Most of the guys ended up looking pretty similiar. The Slingshot-expansion added some cool, new features, but still... I wish my russian guy actually sounded like a russian and my other guys talked with an accent.
Will there be any new customization-options for this expansion?

PUNCH ALIENS IN THE FACE!!!. *pukes*. Im really starting to believe that the vast majority of dev's have no fking creativity at all.

Anyways, 
So this content is $30, 1/2 the price of a AAA game, but ppl will get nothing much, its just some tweaks and most of that really nothing at all. Even with no support for modding, modders have already been touching on stuff this mega milking pack of content offers.

Enemy Within isn't worth more then $10. Thankfully i play it on PC and can get it on Steam sale.. eventually. Also I realized that console gamers can't mod.. or its just a super pain to do so, so now i know why and who would actually throw their money to these greed fk's 2K. I thought BL2 content was kind of a rip, but this crap and Civ dlc is a big winner.

I'm not much of a strategy game person. However, after seeing this gameplay I'm thinking of trying XCOM out. Thanks for the video.

Why does the intro song to this segment sound like the Firefly theme song?

Seems my question, at least what my jumbled mess of words meant, Got answered.

Hoping for base attacks, soldiers betraying you and overall damage to your abilities to respond to the Alien threat.

Does this continue the story where it left off in enemy unknown or is it like second wave where we must repeat the main story?

@moretomian24 I'm not a strategy game guy, either, but I picked up XCOM free through PS+ and got hooked. I'm not done with the game, though; thinking about waiting for Enemy Within to come out and play it through that way.
