[Blogger] Day One Disappointment: Where does DLC come from? - Page 3  

post #21 of 184
yeah, i dont pay for DLC either. its jsut stupid. if they want to do an expansion pack then thats fine but 15 bucks here and 10 there kills me. i wanted to play dragon age so bad but put it off. picked up the ultimate edition for 10 bucks a while back and had a great time with it. i personally dont mind waiting a year or 2 to save over 100 bucks.

I like how they charge more for games, the quality of most games have dropped significantly. Most game are so linear its only worth 1 play through or 2 tops and the multiplayer. Multiplayer used to be a simple small feature of the game, and extra selling point. These days, it is the game and a crappy single player is thrown in to call it an actual game...

People use emulators so often for a reason, games of old were fun and exciting, and could be played often, not a one use, one trick pony of today. Sure there are some great game out now, but the industry has pushed me away big time, I haven't bought a new PC game in over a year, haven't gotten a new console game in months, theres simply nothing worth putting my money on imo. I don't have money to throw at 2-3 games a month, 1-2 every half a year at $40-$60 a pop, so I aint throwing it away on a game I'll put in less than 20 hours on.

They simply want to make more and more money while doing nothing, thats all. They got spoiled by the old market where there was limited products and games to choose from, so you only had to be better than the other 10-20 games on the shelf at a local store, now theres hundreds and thousands of games, indie developers and such, theres choice. The industry doesn't know what to do, because now they suddenly have to compete on quality, rather than simply owning the industry, and they realize they aren't that good at what they do, so they try to cripple and monetize the heck out of everything, b4 it collapses in their faces.

We all know the future is moving toward direct to consumer selling, no/limited middle man. Large bloated distributing companies are a thing of the past, and will die off in years to come or be forced to downsize and get lean, and stop ripping off the consumers.

Lol seriously? Your comparing Hardware which was deemed non compliant to a release standard, as in not intended for use at all, to developed lock content which IS intended for use that you must pay for in addition to the original?

No no no...

It is more like buying an Intel 4 core CPU then being forced to by a "Processor enhancement card" which unlocks 50Mhz.

Somehow, it makes me feel that these damn pirates are not so wrong after all. There must be a limit to greed.

It's criminal if you ask me... It's already there weather you pay for it or not so why deny people the use of it.

Wrong. It would be like buying a car and having to pay for a sunroof.

You don't HAVE to buy DLC. Just like you don't HAVE to have a sunroof.

But I HAVE to have it on my computer (for patched hidden DLC).
So what do I do with that giant gaping hole in my car?

I recently worked on a project where my code was put into a final build and shipped, even though it didn't do anything yet - because another piece of code that is necessary for something to actually happen wasn't yet written.
But it was there. Should customers be upset that this feature wasn't in, even though it was supposedly ready? No -- because it wasn't. That said, BioWare could have just released it as a day 1 patch.

What rock have you been hiding under? It's not an incomplete section of the game, it's a fully functional area that you have to pay 10-15$ to access.

That's not the same as WoW having incomplete areas. It was on the disk, it should be part of the game.

hahaha yes, "choose your weapons wisely. no seriously you can only have four you have to pay more for any others."

Yeah and they'd make it seem like it added more depth to the game, you know, as if it was a tactical decision you have to make in the game. Oh my oh my, I wonder what FPS am I going to be playing 5 years from now :S I know I will be playing though... Gaming is a big part of my life and FPS games are a big part of my gaming. So yeah I will be playing even if all the FPS games suck then, hope something awesome is going to come out in the near future.

Wrong the sunroof wasn't there and then just locked out. The added cost is an option meaning you don't pay for it it's not there and no extra work has been done to put it there. My car came standard with a moon roof they didn't lock it then make me pay $500 for the key to use it.
