So to play the full game we must pay 135$ eh? I will wait for the Goty Edition thank you. The Witcher 3 will keep me occupied till then, hell i havent finished Bloodborne yet so i can wait.
That's the current gaming world I'm afraid, it's a good call to wait for an inevitable GOTY... if you've got other games to finish off and are in no rush.
Thats a shame really. You know what really piss me off, is that season passes/dlc prices rarely goes down. I remember seeing in Mass Effect 2 costing 10$ and the full story dlc costing 25$. That outrageous.
And then you got real idiots of society saying things like "oh it's optional, no one's forcing you to get it bro", "oh get a job bro", "oh developers gotta pay their bills bro"...
So stating the obvious makes them idiots then? It's not idiocy to state that you really aren't forced to get these DLC unless you feel like you are entitled to it simply because they said it exist than the real idiots of society are the people who think that
Stating the obvious doesn't make them idiots, defending these practices makes them idiots. Everyone knows it's a choice (even though that line is quickly fading with cut content), but not letting fellow gamers criticize something for the benefits of gamers as a whole, is idiocy.
Mega excited for this...just not enough to fork out that much money. Back to the old routine of waiting until its old and dirt cheap, or a game of the year type edition
GOTY Edition saving the day once again.
I am disappoint.
$40? ._. Geez, love this series & I love Rocksteady but I can't imagine content that could justify paying $40 for. If that's the case, these DLC packages better be huge & I'm not talking extra skins or whatever.
Exaclty. It is such a slap in the face especially when devs like CDPR are giving cosmetic DLC away for free.
I had hope season passes would become more valuable when dbz and driveclub season passes wee well worth the price but this....yeaaa i was wrong
I'll get the main game but I'm not paying that price for a season pass, going to wait for as massive price drop before even considering to get that.
"Racetracks" Crap. I can see most of the Riddler's challenges being racetrack related.
Um did anyone else notice part of the season pass content includes "additional super-villains invading Gotham City" what does that mean? Does it mean story DLC like Harley Quinn's Revenge & Cold, Cold Heart or are they throwing in more villains in side missions for the main game? Like WTF does it mean?
It's awesome regardless.
Yea. A season pass is nice in concept because it guarantees you everything they'll release. But unless they tell me Exactly everything they plan on releasing so I know what I'm getting, I feel very skeptical and unsureabout making the plunge.
Exactly this. What am I paying for? It may be good enought to warrant the cash up front, but first you have to be up front with me and tell me what my money buys me.
Even if they list something for the pass they can can still pull it later. Bungie did it when they pulled the raid from the second season pass release. The replacement is some hoard mode arena. So unless all dlc releases, only then will you be aware of what you get with the pass.
More villains isn't awesome?! Someone explain how that isn't awesome.
WTF, guess im waiting a year for this and MKX inevitable GOTY edition. Thanks WB, keep being classy.
So, that explains the delay (they just needed to hack the game to pieces so they could sell it to you bit by bit over the following 6 mo. or so after the game drops). These recent business practices at least make my wallet happy (as it gets to hold on to more of my money). I wish I was just being sarcastic, but unfortunately that seems to be the way things are now, oh well.
Piss off WB.. just piss off. Was seriously going to pick this up and shelf it when I grab my Witcher copy. Now, like everyone else I'll be waiting for a GoTY edition. Still working on Bloodborne which I absolutely love and then Witcher. Games not lacking.
What I recommend to fellow gamers is to wait until the actual game drops to $20, then get the game and the DLC, and you won't pay more than the typical $60 for the full game. If anything, developers are hurting themselves because the majority of gamers won't dish out that kind of money for a game. Especially casual gamers who only play when they have time to. I wonder if these high priced season passes will hurt video games long term...
Season passes are only a gamble until all content releases and you literally see what you will get.
I think the bigger concern is not that the content is a gamble, but rather a complete game is chopped up, so that the content can later be sold as dlc for more money. But as brokenbracket already said, it might just be better for us consumers to wait, if we are to pay for dlc to get a complete product, and buy the core game on the cheap.
Both points are reasons enough to not purchase season passes, even with loyalty it is still a blind purchase. Recently Bungie proved that the content listed (House of Wolves raid) is not set in stone for season passes. So far there is nothing positive about buying passes that outweigh the negative.
