Don't get premature with Fallout 4 DLC. That's like milking the cow before it’s even born!
Wish these companies that allow you to pre-order season passes before launch would at least give us details of what they are offering. In this case even Bethesda doesn't even know what they want to do so why would I buy it?? Show us why we should spend some cash so early. Im just going to wait until all of the content that is included in the season pass is detailed before I think about dropping another $30. Still pumped up for the game, Nov 10th cant come fast enough.
Well that is your choice Chris. And I wouldn't blame you for being skeptical about unannounced DLC. However, this is Bethesda. And of the games that I have brought with DLC, I have never been disappointed by it(except horse armour). Will I be one of those people who blindly pays for season pass before its detailed??? Do fish live in water? Hell yeah.
When did they say they don't know what they are doing?
It was in the press release when then announced the season pass.
Not like the season pass will increase in price later. If you feel scared about the DLC, then wait to buy it. It's not like they have a track record of terrible DLC, everything they expand the game on has been great. If you don't agree, you have to agree that SOME of it was worth it...and $30 bucks for 3-4 expansions is a great deal. Time Spent vs Money Spent..........this game has that in droves.
Everybody does it, I just don't like it when people's hypocrisy shines and they get mad at like Ubisoft or EA, but not at a studio they like.
It should, but this is Bethesda and their fanbase is as rabid as ever. Just look at how hyped they were at E3 when Todd Howard showed off features that has existed in games for a long time. Other games got flak for showing off DLC too early or before release but Bethsoft can apparently do no wrong. They'll just release pointless, generic and uninspired DLC like Dawnguard and Heathfire but the fans will be happy because more content regardless of the quality or price is always good.
if this was ea or capcom you wouldn't hear the end of it....
Congratulations Sully, your the one of the ten people that dislike Fallout. Your officially a hipster. I'm sure we'll get DLC more like Point Lookout and The Pitt. I also never heard Todd say that they were reinventing the wheel. Fallout is gonna be great, you must be a Tomb Raider fan :)
Nice assumption there, it seems you didn't even check my profile page to see what my favorite games were before you typed a stupid comment. I don't dislike any video game except the Crysis series because they are trash. I don't like the Dude Raider reboot because it is an inferior version of Uncharted and I have yet to play the past Tomb Raider games except the demos.
*cough cough* Assasins Creed Syndicate *cough cough*
*cough cough* Star Wars Battlefront - Pre-Order to get access to 2 free maps, 2 weeks after release! *cough cough*
How about you all just stop complaining. Most dlc released is entirely optional and if the released dlc is integral to the main game, DONT BUY IT. And move on
You cant tell entitled gamers to not speak with their wallet. How dare you tell consumers not to consume. The ADHD nature of this industry is too great to have self-control. Stop telling them to act like adults!!!!
Sooo... more Fallout is BAD Fallout? That's sure news to me. Here I thought that Bethesda is the one game company whose DLC equals or surpasses the main game and is always worth it. Shows how much I know. /sarcasm
Hey Patrick(author of this article) get a new job, cause this one ain't working for ya. You decided to use Fallout as an example, then continued to say how Fallout wasn't the problem, but it was the idea behind paying for DLC before its out in general. So why have Fallout as your target? Wouldn't be for hits would it!?!? Also, many developers announce DLC before the game releases now, Bethesda did nothing out of the norm, and I would expect a "Fallout 4 has gone gold" story with in a week or two, so it's highly unlikely the game is unfinished like you said. You used Fallout as probably the worst example to push your agenda about DLC, and had maybe one solid point (that's getting burned by other devs in the past) but OF COURSE DLC is to further monetize a game, that's the whole point. They are a business. Getting new and prolonged life from a product that took 3, 4, sometimes 5 or more years to make. You should also have listed a game that is KNOWN to have cut content. Completely done and playable content, for the sake of DLC months later. That was your second example of why DLC is "bad" and I want to know a real, concrete example. Don't give me Destiny with its half finished assets and areas which were explained. Any one with even a sense of development understood why that content was found. I'll be waiting Patrick, for your next sensationalist article, so I can rip it apart.
Well Im not so much pissed but Im considering passing on it when the game releases. I have never been a Fallout fan but Im slowly warming to it so Im definitely going to pick it at some point, just maybe not when it releases. I can wait. I just want the complete package, also considering that my consoles HDD is filling up faster than last gen, it would be painfull to revisit the game and having to redownload all the DLC afterwards if I ever removed them due to space related reasons. Besides theres so many games out there/coming out that its possible I simply dont have enough time for Fallout 4 (currently not being a fan and such).
Don't pre order games, except for Fallout 4. Don't buy season passes, except for Fallout 4. Hypocrisy at its best.
Isn't this game going to be something like 400 hours? Who needs DLC?
Apparently thats not enough. Once they hear DLC....now that 400 hours is clearly too short and the "real" "full" um "complete" game is really with the DLC. Most gamers on here have the glass half empty syndrome. It doesn't matter how much more you give, they will cry the second they can't get something for free then whine it was "cut" to be DLC, disregarding the base game is larger then any of the previous games. Its not about them getting more content...its about them not getting left out of content due to it being paid. They love whining about DLC because they don't want to have to pay...yet don't need to ,cry that its cut...disregards they don't own the IP nor studio sooooo can't really do anything legally about that, crys about it being less of a game, yet by default its actually longer, larger then the last. Oh...its half a game now that they know DLC exist, if they never knew this...they would merely praise the developers. They are only mad at knowing it exist, never mind what the end product is for them, they are just mad at what they are NOT getting for free, not what they are getting day 1 as the base game.
