Junkie Monkeys: A gamer by the name of William Colon is pretty pissed off about Evolve’s pricey DLC. Mr. Colon is so angry about the DLC controversy, that he decided to film himself breaking Evolve at his local GameStop.
Honestly, I will never buy evolve or any other game whos model is sell 1/4 at full price and sell dlc to squeeze as much money as possible from gamers. Sad thing is I won't have many games because this trend is becoming the new way of wallet rapeing gamers. Calcium did the on disc dlc thing....now many others like Destiny are doing this. Pay to win trends like thos that are in forza5 are also becoming common in games. We need to stand up with our wallets period. For the life of me I can't understand how ign gave this a 9/10.....just can't wrap my mind around it. Slowly but surely the gaming world as we know it is turning into a overpriced hell ....games are more and more incomplete...constant patches ....dlc are needed to fully enjoy the complete game. Where it should be, I bought the complete game and dlc has nothing to do with the core of the game. Dlc should only be content for thos who love the completed game so much that they want more. Not, here buy this piece of a game at full and tge buy the rest with a same day dlc. I say no to this....so should you. Supporting this will end gaming as we know it.
This is stupid. Buy their game, then break it in a video... That'll show em! I bet they definitely learned their lesson. Meanwhile, you spent 60 dollars, they made a sale, and you are left with... nothing but a stupid video that no one will care about 1 day from now. Please dont approve this trash. I'm not condoning the way the DLC is set up for Evolve, but this isn't the way to solve the problem or voice your displeasure.
They don't care. You just gave them $60. You should have went to games top and spent your $60 on something else, or even better, spend $204 on 3 or 4 other games.
Its not the fact that he paid for the game, ye they got the money, congratulations to them. This video would have already been posted to them hundreds of times, they have to notice it. If that's what it takes to have is voice heard by the developers then it's worth the $60 he donated to the cause. This is bad publicity whichever way you look at it, if enough people voice their outrage then TurtleRock, 2K, whoever will have to come in with the damage control. "Ooops we meant to say all the DLC is included in the purchase price, Our bad..." Well done, share this video by any means necessary.
I have always been anti-DLC so clearly I am not getting Evolve lol and game companies should not rely so much on DLC, they should rely on making a COMPLETE working game at launch for people to play and enjoy. DLC shouldn't even be involved. Edit: *sigh* I miss the previous generations PS2, PS1 etc and further back, when DLC did not exist
The dlc is fine, but make it f2p, or cheaper than $60.
What is actually unlocked during normal gameplay? Anything?
Before some of you start mouthing off about its just skins, they are just cosmetic and you dont have to buy em you are absolutely right. The problem is they released 44 dlc items on the 1st day worth more than double the price of the game!!! Also the season pass which is supposed to give you all of the dlc at a discount, doesnt even cover all of the dlc. Most of the skins should have been rewarded to players for completing certain tasks. Then if certain players want more than they can make and sell them post launch. Everyone is happy and you dont have to deal with the pr nightmare they are currently in. What a horrible start for gaming in 2015.
Well...least he did something new instead of joining the rest of us with moaning online haha
He gave them a sale, how is that better than moaning online? EDIT: @foxtrot, that makes more sense then. Misinterpreted your meaning, sorry. :)
Oh I didn't say it was better, I just said it was new
With that money I could have bought all DLC's stupid.
But.... you already gave them you're money...
This is actually kind of funny.....This is why I do gamefly unless there is a game I really really want. I'm tired of supporting these greedy companies. Can't wait for halo 5 but hell no I'm not buying it or any other 343 game after master chief collection!!!
What i find funny is people complaining about DLC for this game, have anyone looked at the DLC??? NO, all the DLC is SKINS!!!!! no gear no weapons, nothing but SKINS!!!! and people complaingin about SKINS!!!??? People need to read before folling the bandwagon about DLC.
Colon? You totally rectum! /s I understand the protest, but why give the developers/publishers another sale?
He's not just the Colon, he's the whole behind. He protests wasting money on dlc by wasting money on the game just to break it.
