Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) and Monolith Productions today revealed the Season Pass for upcoming action game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, showcasing exclusive content that will be available at participating retailers.
So my two most anticipated games get a season pass , this and the evil within , its a shame that 60$ isnt enough anymore .
yeah it sucks i know, but on the bright side it shows devs have confidence in their game. so at the very least the game we get for the initial $60 is more likely to be good
Battlefield. That is all.
Sorry, but why does Guerilla Games have some sort of mojo that allows them to release map packs and DLC for free? http://www.killzone.com/en_...
It's sh*t like this that gets people to go the route of piracy. They can't even wait 'til release anymore, they have to start showing out early.
Also, what makes it worse is: You just know that if this was back in the day of no hdd's in consoles(back when they actually cared about putting out a fully fleshed out product) they'd have jammed all these day 1 $$$DLCs$$$ into the disc. Like games like Soul Calibur back on the Dreamcast, with all the ridiculous amount of extra content jammed in there. If that were to come out now by Namco, over 50% of that content would be day-1 & post-release $$$DLC$$$ content. Then they'd just lie like Crapcom does and say it was on a separate DLC budget, yeah, right. Like there's anyway to prove that, and even if there was, you don't do that. If it's done in time to go on the disc, you put it on the disc, especially when we're getting way less content than we use to get for $60, dirtbags.
so pretty much if we want the "full game". its gonna cost more. cause you know $60 is "cheap"....
Accounting for inflation, $60 today is as cheap as video games have ever been. I can't really blame them for trying to get more money when development costs are higher, but the retail price of games hasn't changed, except to reflect the devaluing of the Dollar.
season pass...for a lotr game? dafuq?
i have never bought any season pass except for bf4 which was like a ticket to hell bought straight from satan himself. so i will keep my hands away from that type of crap for the rest of my life. if i want dlc which i am mostly not except for mp games that get repetitive over time i can buy one pack at a time. also this season pass for Shadow of mordor looks like it is really loose and not connected to the main story.
I completely agree with you. I did this for Black Ops II and (yes, I play Battlefield also) I felt rewarded by the content and map packs. HOWEVER, there were still DLC packs that were not available to me. That is certainly a WTF moment. I basically had paid twice for one game and weapon skins and the like were all additional. I didn't buy the BF4 season pass because the game was broken at launch. I was planning on it, but I played last night (probably for the last time) and saw teammates rubberbanding, I rubberbanded and it cost me two kills and the result was that I went suicide because of the RPG I had fired at the two guys standing side by side.
It's sad too, my friend got me into Battlefield around Bad Company 2, and I bought it on PS3. A main incentive was the fact that all map packs were free, as long as you had a non-used version and had your code. Otherwise, it cost only like $10 to unlock everything. Then, soon as I get into BF, BF3 comes out trying to mimic COD. They brought the Premium, started charging for map packs, and brought them out back to back. So sad, I stopped playing BF right away after that. The whole reason to keep competitive mp map packs free in shooters is to not split up the community. So, when the 3rd or 4th map pack comes out you can still find matches in all modes after 11pm-12am+. Which is what happens to me in COD always, cuz I refuse to give them any more money for their crappily optimized games, then suddenly I can't get in Kill Confirmed matches late night. Punished for not paying a WOW style subscription for some simple FPS matches.
Nope, sorry. Names of DLC just wont cut it. I need to know, length of each of these DLC's as well. and what they are specifically. I'm tired of dishing out extra money for a fuqing fetch quest you finish in 5 minutes. Stop milking my money bitches and stop being coy!
Definitely looks to be the best LOTR game but Dragon Age & Lords of the Fallen for this year and the it's on to Batman, Bloodborne, & Witcher 3 next year... Possibly pick it up after I beat all those ( if I can ever beat them lol ( so many hours are gonna be lost )
I will never buy a season pass unless it's a ticket to sports games.
Pay for DLC that we have no details on, ahead of time, with a game we're already paying $60 for? I'm IN!!!! /s
I'm so tired of getting nickle and dimed by these game companies. Especially for content that should already be in the game. They will find any way they can to get more money out of us. The problem is there are those that are willing to pay so not only will it not change but things will get worse. I have nothing negative to say about anyone who chooses to buy these season passes or any additional content for a game because we all have a right to do what we want but for me its just wrong. Bad thing is I can't say I've never done it myself because there are franchises that I love so much that I want to experience as much of their worlds as possible. Thats the lure of it. Game companies know that we get vested in their worlds and characters. Or even in the competition of something like cod or battlefield. Whatever your niche is they use it against you cause they know the lure of experiencing one more story, or getting a couple of new maps and guns, maybe even a couple of new tracks and cars to race on, whatever it is you want they're gonna feed it to you a little at a time and charge you for it. Who sets these prices anyway? It might be different if the stuff was cheaper but games like cod and battlefield want basically the price of another game. Just aint right.
It's so easy.. If you intend to pick up all add on content and DLC for a game, then get a season pass because it's economically worth it. If you want and play all the expansions for Battlefield, then you most likely got a season pass.. If you don't, then don't buy it.. It's VERY simple..
I'll just watch it uploaded by someone falling for the scam. It's unfortunate, but i'm not gonna support a pass to the unknown.
