What if they are e.g. new weapons or vehicles? Useless or not?
Just watching e.g. the list of over 20 separate DLCs for Borderlands 2 makes me feel "Ok, I'll wait for GOTY edition then". I shouldn't be obliged to wade through over 20 different DLC descriptions and try to make up my mind which of them I "really need" and which are completely "useless". At least for me if it not so simple to tell what the DLC means for the base game, from a vague one line description.
To give an example, would the double-barrel shotgun in Doom 2 have been completely useless, if it had been sold as a separate micro-DLC? I bet the game can be completed even without it, so does that mean double-barrel shotgun is completely useless in Doom 2 and no one should buy such DLC?
I even find the idea quite contradictory that they would make so much DLC that is completely useless and irrelevant. If they are so useless, why do they feel people would want to buy them anyway?
Dude, it's pretty obvious which DLC is the story based DLC. Also, if you're really that lazy, you can always buy the season pass, then you get all the stuff you wanted anyway without waiting for GOTY.
Many like cosmetic stuff, there's dozens of pieces of costmetic stuff already in game for each class, but some fans want more. And you know what? That's fine with me, they're funding Gearboxes next, good title, voluntarily, and they feel like they're getting something good out of it.
If you can't spend 2 minutes either looking up DLC, actually reading the descriptions, or you know, just ask people who the game (here or elsewhere)... well fuck, that's longer than it took you to park and walk into the store to buy the game, guess you didn't want the game that badly anyway.
There's legitimate issues with some DLC, whining about "oh noes the list is too long" is not only curmudgeon but actually just makes legitimate complaints blend into the general "gamer whining" and get ignored. orcishgamer:
So should I put that down on the "Roman5 was wrong and now is trying to distract people by bitching about EA" list?
Jesus dude, the reviews are coming in, Dead Space 3 is turning out good (for the definition of "good" that made fans of the previous two happy). When do you ever STFU and realize everything new isn't complete crap? Aren't you like in your early 20s or some shit? You act like a grumpy 60 year old wishing for some glory days of gaming which, having lived through them, I can assure you never fucking existed.
I never commented on the quality of the game, who knows, maybe Dead Space 3 will turn out to be an actual good game? I certainly hope so
What I was commenting on was the absolutely disgusting approach to DLC in this game, EA's attitude and the general way of how this release is being handled, aka EA telling us: "This game must sell 5 million or you can fuck off"
Of course, it's not as bad as when Bioware took out crucial story parts out of ME3 and then EA sold it as day 1 DLC separately but it's still rather revolting and there are legitimate reasons for people to be upset here
