Modder brings the voice of Bob Ross to your XCOM 2 squad

'Today the paint salesman's in town ...'

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

XCOM 2 promised mods on launch day and three weeks later, modders are officially not effing around. The Bob Ross Voice Pack brings the mellifluous tones of the beloved public television painter to your squad.

Did your sniper miss? "We don't make mistakes, we have happy accidents," Bob reassures. Getting ready to line up a shot on a big-ass mech? "Let's build a happy little cloud." After blowing it to hell, "That's a fun cloud; you'll enjoy that."

I can't think of who would make me feel more safe and secure, while overthrowing an extraterrestrial occupation of Earth, than Bob Ross. Not even Arnold Schwarzenegger — who is in a separate voice pack released by the same modder, would make me feel this secure.

PC Gamer, from whence we spotted this marvel, notes that it has a custom Bob Ross character mod available to complete the scene.

Whether you're joking around in it or not, XCOM 2 is a great time. See our review for more; we scored it a 9.0.
