    Terminator along with Star Wars were just some rad movies from the 80s that should never have gotten sequels.

    At least Back to the Future is unmolested.

    With Back to the Future——they can write the retcons right into the main narrative, and have their new characters deconstruct the Doc and Marty as reckless amateurs who [finally] get brought to 'justice'.

    I feel that many of these movies were never meant to be long running franchises; Alien, Predator, Terminator, Robocop.
    One or two movies were sufficient.

    Tie in media such as books, comics, and video games are okay, though I often feel the books and comics fell flat because the writers either did not really understood the source material that well, tried to mimic it too much such as the plot lines, or to often added new inventions of their own that felt unfitting.

    It will be interesting in what direction this DLC will go as it
    does not seem to be about the 124th finding and destroying the power core. Perhaps they reserve it for a sequel?

    Those Centurion HKs are a lot bigger than I thought they were, or they were really downsized in Terminator Dawn of Fate and some of the Terminator comics in which they appeared.

    It's out now! Can it be played separately or is it part of the main campaign? On Steam it says:

    So I guess that you have to start the game from the beginning to enjoy this?

    No, from what I heard is that like with the infiltrator mini DLC there is an option on the menu to directly start with this DLC once you have downloaded it.

    You are handed some upgrade points so that you can can assign some to skills and abilities and don't need to start from basics.

    Wait you have skills and abilities in this game like a RPG?

    Somewhat. It is more like a FPS with some stat elements attached to it so you can improve things like carrying ability, crafting of items, hacking and lock picking.
    And you need to improve your weapon handling skill in order to be able to use plasma weapons.

    It's like Fallout 4 but good.

    That's correct!

    Was there always an "Extreme" difficulty setting? I think I have to go with that one since I remember the game being easy. But I can't remember if I played the main campaign on Hard or Extreme.

    I think it was added later as a lot of people even found hard easy.
    Many felt that that was normal difficulty.
