Splosions: "From what I understand, a bunch of basement-dwelling emo kids are upset that the price of the new Halo Wars DLC is so high considering that it's a measly 2mb download. Apparently some people need a few things explained to them."
For reals! Since when did the actual size of a download affect its value?
Maybe you should read it before commenting. He's talking about how so many people are complaining that it's only 2MB and therefore isn't worth the price.
Yes, thanks that was the part I was referring to.
The Halo Wars DLC are just rules for the matches. This takes almost no time at all to create and shouldn't even cost money. That's like Capcom asking you to pay money for the Championship mode in Street Fighter 4. It's just ridiculous and this article is full of crap, probably some Microsoft employee thinking that calling people emo is gona make them think "OH NO WAIT IM NOT EMO IM GONA GO BUY THIS TURD DLC, I LOVED BEING ROBBED"
menoyou, I think the point is that simply complaining about it doesn't do any good if you still cough up the money and buy it anyways. Vote with your dollars and don't download the damn thing at all.
some people just like getting ripped off
im not buying this dlc content im saving for fallout 3 or the next gears 2
to shut up and buy what you like. If you like halo wars buy the DLC, if you think its a rip off shut the Fu#$ up. No one cares what you think. JUst dont buy it. Thats the point. the INTERNET needs less whiners. Most people who complain probably dont have the game anyways. I dont, but like most people I want to complain. So ill cry about whiny people on the internet instead of complaining about every piece of [email protected] tHE WHOLE POINT OF dlc IS TO sift through the crap and find something that ads value to the games that you like. Any moron knows that everyone doesnt like the same games and so they wont place the same value on DLC. In other words, just because I think halo wars is stupid and I never want to play it, doesnt mean that DLC is a rip off. It may add hours of enjoyment to someone who likes the game.
This guy needs to also stop b!tching. If people want to complain about something that they don't seem is right, let them.
Freedom of speech and all that, but I would prefer people stop b!tching about it. There's been several unnecessary stories the past few days about people complaining about Halo Wars. You don't like it don't buy it.
True that. But developers need to realize that some DLC shouldn't have a price to it. I mean ripping people off for additional costumes? Give me a break! Those kind of things need to be included in patches for "Free"
Yeah, totally. I mean, I'd be much more appreciative of free stuff, but some people don't seem to understand that no one is forcing people to get the DLC in the first place.
^^^^ Exactly right. A person is wholly responsibly for whether or not they download it. If they do, then moaning about the price (at least for them) is a hypocritical exercise. By buying it, regardless of HOW you feel about paying for it, you continue to feed the cycle. The fact is, if no one bought these various packs, skins, or whatever other pittance of DLC devs decide to charge $10 for, the publishers might actually be forced to release this stuff in its intended state--free. Or at the very least, have the DLC "unlocked" on the disc if its already on there.
Everyone complain that not all games made by Cookigaki, and Cookigaki agrees. Every game should have ninja and boobs.
LOL, ninja and boobs. I gotta agree with ya there.
You already bought a 360 so you're used to getting ripped off. You might as well suck it up and buy the Halo Wars DLC too.
MS want more $$$.
The price of DLC… Quit Yer B!tchin'=bend over shut up and take it!
The price of DLC is justifiable if the service your downloading through is free. On Xbox Live you have to pay $50 so you can chatterbox away with 8 of your buddies and get exclusive "demos" and "dlc" for games that assure you microsoft is just milking all they can to keep there gamers happy when the shovelware they spew is trash and overhyped halo map giving garbage On top of that you have to pay for things not even at a "gold" membership discount but at full price. Would it be that hard to at least give your gold members more incentive? Something that makes them feel like there saving more money this way like ANY other kind of subcriptions?? DLC is fine of the PsN for DLC ranges from 1080p Full games that outperform games being developed to this very day.
identical DLC on PSN is more expensive than on 360
If the download only consist of pure text coding (no images, object and what not) ... then 2MB IS A LOT from a programmers perspective. And yes it would be worth it depending on the value the coding brings. The code could use sources already available on disc such as maps and costumes or what ever. So don't go judging or calling a company a ripoff before you know exactly what was done to create the content.
... I havent bought ANY DLC and apart from maybe the GTA DLC, and some other content that IS worth the money, I really don't intend to... In fact, these DLC-scamming practices has just made me 'boycot' certain titles. I won't buy those games. I might mod my console and then play it, but I'll never buy those games from developers that try to scam me with that DLC BS.
The point is lost in an article when the writer has to resort to using vulgar language and personal attacks on the people complaining. Why is this nonsense published on N4G?
How is that bending over and taking it tramp? I'm not buying it, but i'm not going to b!tch about it, nor i'm i going to act like a tool the way you are...
im bichin about it not because its 2 mbs. but because we were completly ripedoff. how the hell do they release a rts with only 4 maps for 2v2?!!? 3 for 3v3 and 4 for 1v1.. its a damn rts!!! age of games had hundreds randomly generated maps. why not here?? not to mention the game only shipped with 2 modes!! versus and deathmatch. this crap was taken out on purpose to charge later
