Oblivion's horse armour will go down in history as one of the worst pieces of DLC to ever be released. ;-)

95% of dlc is overpriced and is sometimes even found on the disc, which isn't even "downloadable". For the most part it's a racket. My hat's off to the Witcher devs for offering so mch for free.

Yeah, CD Projekt Red are setting a good example for other devs to follow!

I say unlocks and New Game+ for single player and fighting games while expansions for multiplayer heavy titles.

My friend and I laughed the other day as we read issues of Tips and Tricks reminiscing of how times changed.
