I'm not as excited for this game myself, but it looks like Overwatch Beta has re-opened. Have at it!
On a side note, you can mod a ton with just doing the right INI edits for the config files. Some notables:
-Increase squad size to 8 after upgrades (or more)
-Increase enemy pod sizes by 1 (although I pilfered from a different mod for that - not sure how it will look late game)
-Change loot drops
-Alter enemy behavior
There's a lot more and mods are coming out really quickly. Great time to be playing!
Responded in discord, but here's how it works:
The class assignment is only in effect if they aren't promoted from being a rookie from a mission. So if you get them as a reward from a mission or pick them up later in the game, they will show up as that class. If you get them on the first mission, then the game will select one of the classes at random (though it always fills out the first 4).
You can also have them retrain in the advanced warfare center if it's really bothering you. I didn't use it for that, but I believe you can either retrain the full tree or switch to another class if you so desire.
As for the attitude/hair, I'm not sure, as it has also happened to me, but my bet is that it's a bug. It's an easy fix (attitude not until they hit sergeant, but w/e). Beat it on commander last night!
Jag - everything.
You can hold on the DLC, it's just for 3 and they'll probably be $10 individually. You just need the one version of the game.
Having just played the tutorial, it feels like a waaaaaaaaaaaay better xcom than the 2012 edition.
Commanders, Xcom 2 is now released in Australia (and you can VPN in as many did with Fallout 4). Otherwise, it's out at 9 pm PST / 12 pm EST US time. It's looking like most people think it's a top game of the year candidate for 2016 already!
Good luck, fellow Commanders.
I've done a good amount of shopping at ikea. As a for instance, we still have several lamps and my computer desk is from there.
I've found it to be a mixed bag. I think, a while ago, it was cheap quality stuff - now, it's diminished in terms of quality. As Maligner said, if it's that far away it's likely not worth it and you should probably be looking in-town (or nearby, like an hour or less) for stuff. You can also order a lot online, which may or may not work for you. Ikea stuff is not long term either, in my opinion - unless you spend on it, in which case, you aren't really getting the value aspect.
I think the best is to start planning what you need and then compare that with your budget. Do you have a TV? You'll need something to hold it. Need couches? Having been younger and having to do more with less, I had a hodge-podge of furniture from different places. The places to spurge would be where you spend the most time - if you only watch TV sometimes, I'd go for less on the entertainment center/couch, and more for the bed and computer desk/chair to make sure you're comfortable and supporting your body well.
There's also things that I would consider extraneous (end tables, coffee table, and so on) that could wait until later to purchase to allow you to spend more on your current items. Obviously, that's more utilitarian than aesthetic. You should also review and budget for things you will be bringing with you and how long until they need replacing (if you have a computer desk, is it rickety or will it be good for a while, things like that) and weigh the impact to your other items if you were to replace them. Unless you immediately plan on having people over, you can take time and accrue items over a few weeks/months rather than rush and furnish it immediately.

Just to be clear: this was written by a Reddit user, not CIG.
Good thing the "San Francisco" 49ers don't actually play in San Fran, but in Santa Clara.
While the stadium itself is in Santa Clara (42 miles away, and trust me, it feels much further), Super Bowl City is at the end of Market street. They have security checkpoints and its already exacerbating the terrible commute situation. I absolutely want no part of this nonsense. The city itself (the municipal entity) is not going to see any benefit from a financial perspective either - it sounds like the Olympics where the host city gets left holding the bill.
Vanguard time, gents and ladies.
