Announcing DLC before the game releases? Why are we okay with this?
I've only bought two season passes this whole gen. - L.A. Noire Season Pass ($9.99) - BioShock: Infinite Season Pass ($19.99). an i gotta say L.A. Noire was well worth it as for bioshock it has yet to be seen. but i can almost assure that it will be.
I did the LA Noire as well. Was a very interesting game. Got my 100%. As for DLC, no one says you "need" to buy it. It's there for those who want it. Some have a real passion for the games they play. That and many times the cost is so cheap. It's like the cost of a footlong Subway meal....wow. So never been a big deal for myself. Don't care? Don't buy, simple I say. Story needs to add: You pre order you get FREE DLC game play. Free download in game content add ons. With AC4 you get FREE exclusive 60 mins of game play for the PS3 and PS4. On top of the 100+ hours of game play in the game already. Why use AC4 as an example when COD and BF are bigger draws and both do it ALL THE TIME. With BF4 the X1 gets day one DLC and pre orders get day one DLC. What about Collectors Editions? Who hates on those? Just a bigger deal DLC with stuff. Buy a Season Pass and get it all at a huge discount. Every major game is doing this and has been. Again, don't care for it, don't buy it. It's there for those who want it. But I do like how he ends the story with " I still love DLC. " lol.
I only ever got the Borderlands 2 DLC. Definitely DID NOT regret it. Over 40 hours worth of amazing content I got from it. That being said I don't like all of this DLC before the game is out shit. It's not cool at all. As for Collector's Editions, this highly depends on the company. I mean I've gotten quite a few this gen. Skyrim, ZoE, MGS collection, Dark Souls, Diablo 3, SMT4. I loved all of them too. None of these had the dlc bullshit though, they all had artbooks, statues, documentaries etc. I think that stuff is cool.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI, Options, many people like the games to continue on. Rather then have Dev's say here's your game we are done with it and walk away. I pick and chose my DLC and Collectors Editions as well. I've done the Season Pass for BF3, which was a huge savings! I did BL2 as well, which give you the level upgrades and again more missions/worlds to play in. I got Skyrim for the PS3 right when it came out. I loved the game so much. I plated it in just 19 days. That's with having to replay a good deal of it over because of a glitch in a mission that forced me to replay back to that point to get my last trophy. This all long before the PS3 save file patch too. I loved it so much I went back out and bought this. http://i1199.photobucket.co... http://i1199.photobucket.co... http://i1199.photobucket.co... http://i1199.photobucket.co... The shame part as we all know. The DLC for this game took over a year to make it's way back to the PS3. By then I had long moved on. :(
