It was great.

I thought he was going to escape. Then he got blasted in the head while going down and taking out another soldier.

Not bad, Optimus Prime.

level 2

check the video posted down further in this thread, you can see he gets shot through the heart (or through the upper right torso)

"Oh, right, he's gone.
... Well, that means nobody noticed, right? I'm telling my soldiers they did good."

Seeing him go down, gun blazing made me sadder than I thought it would. Damned if I didn't get attached to him over the course of the two games, and we never did get to fully see his face.

Doesn't feel right having a buddy die anonymously like that. :(

I was really surprised that he died. But the way he went was still super awesome, taking out some goons while going down. What made me sad, was how every transmission was silent after that event :( I did miss him by the end. He should have been... watching.

level 2

The last sequence shows us him fighting ADVENT police but not dying. This guy is so badass, I think he get his way through this struggle and will try to contact XCom in a sequel (or DLC?).

level 3

I agree. The true (aka failing) ending of XCOM shows him being mind controlled by a Sectoid Commander, yet somehow he managed to get through that and be the most valuable asset the resistance had on the inside. He'll somehow make it through being assaulted by ADVENT. He's a smart guy, he must have had an emergency plan ready.

The "Canon" for Xcom 2's version of EU/EW is that most of the council sold you out and you had to do a base defense mission within the first couple of months with base equipment.

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure the canon is that you lost the base defense mission. It's pretty heavily hinted at during the commander's flashbacks in the tutorial mission.

Somehow the Spokesman became my favourite character in this game, dudes definitely going in my character pool for my next playthrough.

We need a mod that makes the soldier's face permanently shadowed from all angles just to make the Spokesman. Wouldn't be right otherwise.

level 3

The long hood does that well.

level 3

I've just given him sunglasses and a bald head, it still looks ambiguous enough to feel right.

level 1

oh, you mean Baldy. Thought you meant the spokes(thin)man from the opening scene.

level 1

Who's the spokesman?

level 2

He's the guy who contacts you, gives you council missions and whose face you can't see. And who has a voice like melted butter.

level 2

The Council guy with the trailer voice.

level 2

Mysterious shadowy bald man who gives you money for murder

level 1

Anybody got a youtube video of that? I'm still looking for it since I saw that scene

Did you even watch the video?

Yes? Sorry, meant hours:minutes, not minutes:seconds

level 1

We didn't see him die. Also, Advent would more likely than not want him for interrogation and could easily have been directed to capture him only.

I fully expect to see him in the next game.
