Nerd Reactor asks why we still have to pay for Mortal Kombat X DLC characters if they're free.
It's more along the lines of F2P DLC. Sure, you can use them if you don't buy them, but not in versus matches and only when their particular towers roll around from time to time. They could have just locked the DLC character towers completely. At least they're letting us play them even if we don't have the characters.
The more important question is, why are you guys bothered at all about piddly things such as paying for extra characters. When you are happy paying for ridiculous things as paying to going online? Imo complaining about paying for extra characters, skins, maps, weapons etc is a right console gamers shouldnt have after all the other stuff they already happily pay for lol. You brought this upon yourself now deal with it.
You are really a loser,do you think every people that owns a console pays for Dlc,i sure dont an never will and i game for more than two decades!
Don't mind him, he has silicon loyalty. I'm told it has an effect on neural processing.
rofl aren't PC players the ones who accepted monthly subscription fees for online games, way before consoles? Yeah ok decrypt.
@HammadTheBeast For specific games, such as, MMORPG. However, the rest do not charge mostly subscriptions and are not required to pay another charge to access online on top of ones internet bill.
I just wish free unlockables have not gone the way of the dinosaurs. I hope console gamers don't just complain about bu actually do something about it.
@Hammad It wasnt PC gamers that started the silly trend of buying DLCs such as Maps, weapons, skins etc. Thats a trend started by console gamers. PC gamers had all of that for free via mods. Sure the trend started by consolers spilled over to PC gaming, since many games now dont come with Mod support. None of this would have happened if Console gamers asked for mods to begin with.
Funny how the only reason why dlc started was because of pc(which was free) then it slowly made its way to console and that's when Microsoft ruin gaming with dlc.
The same reason why people Donate to Streamers on Twitch when they can just watch for free.... Answer: Morons
Some people don't have a problem paying for entertainment. Without those "morons" there would be very little "free" content for you to watch.
im one of those morons who donates. im just an average joe making my 9-5 but i feel that the streamers appreciate it as they devote their time and energy to provide a free service. Guess im just stupid
When people have jobs and earn their own money, paying around $5 or enough for a cup of coffee at Starbucks to support someone who is giving basically free entertainment isn't a whole lot at all.
Mortal Kombat X-MEH! I'll wait a few months for the Ultimate MKX Edition
You mean a year.
7 months at most, like Injustice.
I couldn't wait a whole for the ultimate edition. I'd be super salty watching those ppl play on twitch. It would be a whole year not getting good.
Seems like you can only play as a DLC person if a certain tower shows up. You can't play as them whenever you want. That's why you have to pay. It's like in KI.... you can play as Jago free..... when they decide to make him free for a week.
That is EXACTLY what it is...You don't get to just use them whenever you want, its ONLY IF the character shows up in certain towers....Your not going online with them, your not playing arcade mode with them....Its ooh it shows up in a challenge tower, so you actually get to use that character for that purpose.... Funny though as much as people cried about Capcom charging $2.50 each for 12 characters in SFxTk, Netherrealm seems to be getting a free pass for MKX characters being around $7+ each ANNNNND if you can use them in challenge towers clearly that DLC is ON THE DISC.
Why are we paying for games if they put out free demos? If they can put out demos than surely they just put it ALL out for free?!?!?!! /s.
I wish they'd add Beatrix Kiddo from Kill Bill, she would be bad ass!!!
I guess the author would prefer they pull a Destiny and lock the tower mode completely anytime a DLC character's tower rolls around?
Well it goes along with just proving how brain dead some people seem to be when it comes to IF some games do something it's the end of the world but if others do its OK..... Capcom offered 12 extra characters for $2.50 each in SFxTk alot of those assets were on the disc and people melted down and had temper tantrums like a retarded 5 year old.... YET MKX CLEARLY has ALL of the DLC characters assets on the disc since you can use them in the challenge towers AND they are a little over $7.00 per character....IF the DLC wasn't on disc the DLC characters wouldn't even show up in the challenge tower....... Yet there seem to be ZERO people complaining about paying $7.00 to unlock content on the disc
Proof that no matter what you do, gamers all always bitch and whine. I think Netherrealm have handled the DLC very well and have have been transparent with everything. In today's age, you can't realistically expect for more.
It just doesn't make sense to make people pay for something that is ready at launch and even worse, it comes in the disc! they let you play with them ffs!! But make you pay if you want to use them pvp. That's all wrong in my eyes.
Where in the hell are you hearing theyre on the disc?
@fireseed Where's your common sense? If you can play with them, they ARE already in the disc. You are paying to UNLOCK them to play pvp.
is not ready at launch, you have to download a patch. i mean, the game is finished months before release. they have to ship all of those retail copies way before the launch date. After that, content that is made is considered as dlc, since they think they achieved their goals with the game before that. tanya, jason, predator and tremor are not ready yet.
Great business strategy if you ask me. Keep in mind "gamers" that not only do the developers want to make a great game and give you a great "game experience" they also want to make money! After all it's their business to do so.I for one do not buy every DLC, but if I feel like a certain DLC will make my game experience better then I will purchase it. It's called an option. Sure it's annoying that everything cost money, but if you don't want the option, or have the money you don't need to purchase it. Guess what, you still have the content you want or can afford. I don't get why so many gamers rant so much about what other gamers want to do with their own money. If you can't get the DLC, can't afford it, or don't want it, that's nice, don't buy it. Let the people that do want it enjoy it, and you go enjoy what you want.. Which is why one gamer has such, and another gamer has his or her own and such. Gamers are lucky we still have options. At least companies don't say "Hey guess what, this game now cost 129.99. One Price! Also when we release it, it will be half way done, but rest assured we will give you DLC every month to make it better until the game is done!" Wonder where all the broke or whiney gamers will be then. Stop crying and game more.
Sooo...they have the characters in the game but it's locked behind a paywall, peeking its face out for us to try? That's bull. Reminds me of SFxT's on disc DLC. F*** developers today.
From what I understand, the DLC characters are playable in the challenge towers ONLY If you want to use them in story mode/online, you pay for the actual character. The challenge towers act like demos
Again People Jumping the gun. Evolve makes all future maps FREE but charges for monsters, but all anyone looked at was charging for monsters. People make me reeeeeeeal tired sometimes.
The more important question is, why are we even discussing DLC characters when the game has yet to release?
The real question should be - why you need to pay for a character that is already there, that was created during the time the game itself was. They specifically cut it from the game to sell it separately, this is why i will not buy this game and will wait for a complete edition, for 30 bucks tops.
Well dlc is a product of gamestop destroying the industry. These companies main income is via dlc. Something that cost us usually $25-30 an that is pure profit,it cant be traded in and resold. Dlc is a product of developers struggling with how to bring in more income and yes digital only would of helped them a lot but obviously the world wasnt ready for that,they'd much rather watch all the studios suffer massive lay offs or rely on a company to money hat them into making it a timed exclusive. Funny how we never see the big picture. It will always be about money but we want our cake and eat it too (buy a game $60 trading it in for $20,having it sold for $54.99) it's the "oh well" attitude that has got us here. Most dont really care about how it effects others,you care about getting that $20 and putting it down on the next game or getting 50% extra store credit towards something else a full blown $35 credit,congrats now with that youll need to trade in another really new game or shell out another $30 which to you seems like a deal,but then you do it all over again 4 months later. Kill gamestop give up $39 games that are only online,$49 with season pass. $49 for new games $59 with a season pass. Sadly we are screwed,gamestop will die off soon anyways and i dont expect to see lower prices unless people make it clear they want to be compromised for the savings in shipping,packaging and no resale value,is knocking $10 off asking so much? One can dream...
They should add Freddy Krueger as future DLC so I can do Freddy vs Jason!
