I'm definitely willing to support THQ and the developers under them since they have published/developed some pretty excellent games and THQ really isn't as bad as some other publishers. I don't preorder all that often but I really think THQ deserves the support.

It's creditors they need to convince wink.gif

But supporting preorder incentives like this are still wrong, no matter the ailing company responsible.

Why is it wrong?

It costs nothing extra and if it's anything like the ranger DLC for 2033, it will be eventually released as free (or extremely cheap) for PC gamers and cheap for consoles. It's not really essential to enjoy the game, either.. it just adds a hardcore element to it. I guess you could argue that's the problem, but the high probability that it will eventually be released for free kind of makes that point moot.

Because you use to get something tangible for preordering. Like my preorder collectors FarCry 2 (yes, I know I know) T-Shirt. That's more awesome than DLC that was going to be included anyway, and it's not a stupid thing to give away.

That was a collector's edition, though, right? And surely it cost more..

Meh.. I just don't see the problem. It's a non-exclusive free DLC that comes with all pre-orders. I was going to end up pre-ordering the game either way, so this is nice for me.

And only chumps pre-order.

Agreed on both points.

I will never (again*) pre-order a game unless it's in a tried and tested favorite series of mine. Or if it comes with a gold watch.

It cost £35 biggrin.gif

EDIT:

non-exclusive? That's actually a crapload better than I though to be honest.

Terrible. I also agree on the "only chumps pre-order" thing. Why would you ever need to pre-order? The only games I have ever pre-ordered were games I knew I was buying on release already, namely Torchlight 2 and King's Bounty: Warriors of the North, and I only did that so I wouldn't have to one extra minute when they were finally ready to play on Steam.

The problem is that at this point it is actually pre-order exclusive.

OH NO, HEAVEN FORBID THEY GIVE A FREE BONUS TO PEOPLE WHO PRE-ORDER, EVEN THOUGHT IT WAS A DLC IN THE FIRST GAME ANYWAY, HOW DARE THEY GIVE IT TO ME FOR FREE IF I PRE-ORDER! What? THQ is going broke? Trying to get pre-orders to show investors people are interested?

NO WAI, THEY'RE MILIKING OUR MONEZ CUZ $0.00 DAY-1 DLC!

I swear to god some people here don't read or think straight and are just bitter men reminiscing of days when "WE GOT EXPANSION PACKS, NOT DAY 1 DLC!" and you wonder why we don't get games or treated as well on PC -.-

Seems like an odd thing to give away as a pre-order bonus. Oh well.
I can't actually remember the Ranger modes being DLC in Metro 2033, but I bought it some time after release so I'm guessing steam automatically installed it.
