Saints Row the third came with a couple of DLC packs that have been pre blocked by the GOG installer. They were the bloodsucker and the unlockables pack

At first they were blocked by a patched called “DLC blocker” now they are pre blocked but the GOG installer. I know this can be undone by editing the gog.ini file but I’d like to ask that you go back to using the patch instead. It might be unbalancing but it is the way the game is meant to be played.

I've sent this message to GOG support as well, but I'd also like to know what you guys think. I am one of those people who like the bloodsucker and unlockables pack. It's great for a second play through. Also the unlockables pack grants you everything so you don't have to worry about missing out on something because you made the wrong decision during a mission.
I'm happy with the choice to have them disabled by default. I'd even disable all DLCs except Gangstas in Space, The Trouble With Clones and Genkibowl VII for the first playthrough, because I think they seriously hurt the difficulty progression of the game.

During my first (and only) playthrough of the game, I've started the game without looking at the contents of all the DLC and ended up ignoring their contents afterwards because it was too late to disable them.

I think adding a program that enables/disables DLCs by modifying the ini file would be the best idea.

Yeah that is a good idea. Like a DLC.exe you click on it and tick what you want.

Sounds like extra work for GOG.
That does sound nice but really it's not hard editing the ini from disabled to enabled by just writing enabled for it,also does the ini file exist when you only install the original game without the patch?
Didn't know they already disabled the DLC in the original installer.
And what exactly do you miss out by making a different decision in missions,are there many such decisions?
Anyway i am playing this game for the first time and still haven't beaten it.

Perhaps but I don't think it's that big of a deal and you miss out on a bit actually. Weapons, abilities and some other stuff. There's a Wiki that tells you all about it and that alone is reason enough I think. The unlockable DLC I'm sure was supposed to be a new game + thing but was probably turned into DLC by THQ
DLCs will not be enabled on install to avoid spoiling game for new users. I'm fairly certain that editing two lines in .ini file is simple enough for anyone without the need for additional programs.
