The Men Who Stare at Mutons: XCOM The Bureau gets some DLC

I finally hit level 50.
It took me awhile. Borderlands 2 came out four months ago (a lengthy stint, in this now-obsessed industry) and I have apparently played it for 86 hours, which – depressingly – may well be more time than I’ve spent savouring chocolate in my entire life.
