Downloadable Content (DLC) good bads, share your experiences and anecdotes

Post by 00f on Sat Dec 06, 2014 9:04 am

i just wanna make a tread out there about this, remember how games before didn't have any of this after market crap and the game were "fully" loaded with the content? 
and that now SOME -not every- companies make you pay for stuff already in the game or some 10kb files lol

yea, i have a few gripes, i do like DLC cause it adds stuff i want, OBVIOUSLY, but this viscous circle has got to a point where it's safe to say that it has backfired on all gamers.

now, im not for removing dlc, we'll never go back or anything, but we should be smart enough when it comes to spending expensive amounts on actually very little content that's being milked and re milked over and over 

Horse costumes? anyone?  (*cough*dynastywarriors*cough*)


i just bought a japanese PSN YEN card to redeem today (so i can dl some japanese game DLC...go figure) and i spent 10euro for 1000yen, but when i redeemed the code i got 3000 yen ...i was like booyah!  XD (kinda feel bad for the seller though,he sent me a the code after i paid him on ebay)
and i bought that Strike rouge Ootori DLC unit for Full Boost ... it's good and all, but after spending around 2000yen for  4 units(not just in one day)
...i realize that's half of what i spent for the whole game that comes with over 90 units "by default" ... and that all these DLC units will be added in the next installment of ExtremeVs ANYWAY! 
                                     

i can't help to think: what a waist ... even if i get free yen, it's still feels like a rip off 


any thoughts on this?

I agree, and theres alot of FB DLC that SHOULDNT be DLC.


Like Operators + HUDs.


Why charge for those? do they make battles easier? No. Do they add new Units? No.


All they do is change the appearance of the HUD and give u a different voice/cut-in image.


Seriously, Bandai's just getting greedy now. I can see paying for new Units but everything else should be stock in game.


Honestly, if they don't GIVE us the HUDs + Operators etc in Maxi-Boost, then ima be very dissapoint.


And yes, i care about HUDs. HUDS can make the battle alot cooler + more intense (Aesthetically speaking)


But DLC in general is good, but i think all minor DLC (like Item Packs, Costume Packs, etc) shud be free or maybe 99c.


But Massive Expansion packs shud still cost money, but maybe a bit less then they are. Some Expansion packs are like 20$.

i don't bother with dlc unless they are in a fancy bundle like dragon age origin did with the ultimate edition.  

as for small dlc they should be collected into 1 big expansion instead of separated into pieces.

you can thank call of duty, they started this whole DLC business, no they didn't really, but still. They're one of the biggest franchise that has done DLC. i mean they have a freaking season pass so you can get the DLC "earlier" and "a lot cheaper", its just a huge business now a days. They don't care about the game, they care more about the money because almost every single new game that comes out is always broken. There's a huge bug in the game that shouldn't be there (assassins creed unity for example). The only franchise that did DLC right is Rockstar with GTAV. every single DLC that came out was free.

wow...yep, proves our point awright, dis industry is broken nuff said.

free dlc is good, big and consistent Expension pack that offer significant additions are fine as well...but content stripped away and sold back in small portions is not fine. and so is after market small ass additions that's obviously greedy. luring gamers into micro transactions to dull down the pain of beefier transaction and make us forget how much we're spending trying to get the "full experience" of the game we like...

devs are innocent, mostly. i blame the higher ups and the shitty editors who's jobs are to make more money from their employee's salaries and the customer's wallets



off topic:  ACE:R  is bleh, a big deception if you ask me, i just tried it and the controls are awful, just reenforce what i think of Banpresto: they can't make a good game. 
Gundam UC for ps3 made by the same Devs but under Bandai is sooo much better, a gem in my book.

it won't change unless there is some big situation/event that happens to force change in it.

i also forgot to mention battlefield, thats another one thats really bad. once the DLC's come out for it, you literally need to them to play them game or its pointless.

you know i told ya guys about the 3000Yen PSN  money i got (instead of 1000yen that i paid for) ?

well... he wrote back and figured there was a mistake, i replied lol 


i know he's japanese so i like replying him in his native language, i said:

unfortunately i redeemed the code long ago ...

i thought it was weird but it's not like there could be a mistake.
i thought i was receiving a present from the Very kind Kesuke-san !
...you fucked up huh?

Sorry

you are still a very[...]



LOL, it's HIS fault, i didn't do anything, i paid for a code and got another one, i'm the VICTIM! XD
(won't complain this time around though)



more seriously, ...i know he's japanese and all, a very pro seller, BUT, should i trust him with my next purchase? if i buy a 3000yen PSN card , will he give me a 1000yen card instead? making himself justice or something? 


i think i might go to another seller from now on XD, i'm scared he'll want to take back from his loss...


i decided to do what was right and pay him back to cover his losses (not profits ), money doesn't come free, im don't want him to ruin his day over this, it's just fair.





edit:
he wrote back!



lolol.
はい!完全に私のミスです。
なので、追加のお金いりません。
クリスマスプレゼントと思ってください^^
今後ともよろしくね^^

regards,
keisuke
i love this guy, he said that he doesn't need the money it's on him, i can take this as my xmas present!!  OMG    EPIC!!!!!! i get to keep my seller and the money
