BioShock DLC: Is it worth it?

Videogamer writes:

"If Big Daddys, Little Sisters and the phrase "Would you kindly" means nothing to you, then shame on you. But if they revive memories of one of the greatest first-person shooters ever made, then read on.

But the big question is, does all this new, free stuff justify you dusting off the game box and entering Rapture once more? To find out."

NO XBL dlc will EVER be worth it until they get rid of the BS DRM that prevents you from accessing it if you lose your broadband connection.

I want to be able to play content I paid for unconditionally! Otherwise I'm only LEASING it and should be charged accordingly.

i did not even no that was the case.

so if i download tracks for forza, i won't be able to access them unless i am online?

the only content i have downloaded is maps for cod 3 but they are multiplayer only so i would not have noticed

You're a genius. Because this content has a DRM, it being free still isn't a value. You are classic!

Silver Bull3t3547d ago

I never said it wasn't a value numbnuts.

My point is that ANY content, be it purchased or free, should be playable offline regardless of hardware configuration. If I have dlc on my hdd, I should be able to disconnect it from my 360 and slap it on any other 360 and still have access to that content right off the bat.

"I should be able to disconnect it from my 360 and slap it on any other 360 and still have access to that content right off the bat"

YES. YES, you should.

this quote look familiar?

"NO XBL dlc will EVER be worth it.."

By using all caps for "ever" you kind of establish that you mean "ever". Now let the grown ups talk.

when you start attacking peoples writing styles, you look beaten.

not attacking you, i`m just sayin........

Silver Bull3t3547d ago

Not worth my time or effort. Kinda like replying to your posts :P

I think anybody with a clue knows what I mean about it not being worth it,... loading up my hdd with all this groovy content that I will no longer be able to unconditionally use if my console bricks, why bother? Especially if it's content I paid for...

I know your having a hard time wraping your peanut brain around this... sorry I can't help.

buh-bye :)

the Bioshock DLC is free, so what is your beef Silver? I have never had to be online to access DLC. It stores to the games profile on your hard drive. Of course if it is a multiplayer map you can't access it unless you are on multiplayer for the most part. There is DRM because its copyrighted. Once you download it, thats the only way to keep other people from bootlegging stuff from one hard drive to another. Why would you need to put your hard drive on somebody elses 360. Do they not have a hard drive?

@ Bumnut
Forza DLC will still be availabe to you when you aren't online

No. The first poster isn't giving you any details. That is ONLY the case IF you've changed 360s. If you're playing on the 360 you downloaded the content to, then you don't need to be connected to the internet to access it.

Silver Bull3t3547d ago (Edited 3547d ago )

And that is any better how? My launch console that I took extremely good care of just rrod on me 2 weeks ago. So I'm still screwed that I can no longer access dlc w/out being connected, since the replacement console isn't the native dl console.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3547d ago

man.

(no sarcasm)

A hell of ALOT of people HAVE.

vgn243547d ago

I can't argue that point. I just like to inform people of details. The first poster spreads ignorance by not giving the full details. I prefer to give detailed explanations so people walk away knowing what and "why".

As for your point, ya, I got nothing cause you're right, lol. So many people have had to replace their systems, it ain't funny. I just wanted to make sure that poster knew why.

Rhezin3547d ago

meh they said new PLASMIDS! there is only one new plasmid. the rest are tonics wtf? Ill still be DLing it tho, but damn that sucks.

gamesblow3547d ago

I don't like how you can't access live arcade without being online... that blows major sack! PsN has the advantage here, I suppose... even tho none of their content is as good as double Dragon for xbox live. "shakes fist"

I really want Doble Dragon for the PSN, man. :-(

Anego Montoya FTMFW3547d ago

for the NES. i was just playing it the other day.

that game is tough.

v1c1ous3547d ago

you can play arcade games offline. it just won't chart your scores online since, of course, your not online.

i mean unless you got a new xbox and are going through that whole "only xbox it was purchased on can play connected" issue.
