So if it's the regular edition what's missing besides the DLC? There aren't any bugs or gameplay issues that patches haven't fixed are there?

Nope. Just DLC and "enhanced for Series X" graphics that haven't been released yet anyway.

I honestly can't remember other than it being a bit difficult and using shield a good bit.

That said, I didn't play it until after I had finished the game and both DLCs, so I had most things maxed out

Yeah, that sounds logical (having just seen the first two Star Trek reboots). I can’t crack it now and plan to do so after all is said and done. I’m down to like 800 source.
Thanks. I got close so many times too. Oh well. It will be my Killavolt.

So with Base game completed, 2 DLCs and 41 missions in total completed, it says I have no missions when I go into dossier. Fair to say, Iím completely done right? Foundation was good, that had an end, satisfying end, learned more. The AWE just seemed I had to kill Hartman and that was it. Got an achievement for that, but nothing really telling me I finished that DLC, like Foundation. I guess thatís that.

Now, to find my next, which will probably drive me insane enough and wonít wind up playing anything. I hate that!

I had that same issue after finishing this, I want more from this game world and I want it now.

So I'm going through a short one (Cold War) before dedicating to a longer title.

$19.99 on PSN. Same as it was/is on Xbox.
Not sure if the game is any good; nobody seems to know about it.

Oh ok, I checked Metacritic just to double-check and you are right, it looks to be a pretty meh game.

I'm the one who genuinely didn't care for the game. The gameplay itself was alright, though nothing remarkable, but it was the redundant setting, everything looking/feeling the same around each corner, that made me really tired of the game and finally put it down.

Yeah, I didn't love the office setting for a similar reason. The game really did shine every time you got out of it and I wish they had a few more parts similar to the ashtray maze. But it did ultimately work in the games favor by the end.

Still my 2nd favorite game so far that I played in 2020.

I think there enough locations that didn’t quite make it similar, you keep opening more and more of The Oldest House and it definitely keeps expanding, but the story, the increased powers, guns, bosses and enemies, kept me hooked until the end, plus the DLCs.
