Nope, they couldn't possibly do that [/sarcasm]
not to deter from the Day 1 DLC banter, but... So??
if anything, games SHOULD be considerably harder than they are now... they certainly used to be.
some people want to play a game and feel like they are the ultimate badass, some people want to be challenged... the point is, everyone plays for their own reasons. I do not care if somebody wants to buy every single bell and whistle the developers throw out there, on Day 1, thats for them. I want to play the game as it was originally intended, regardless of how hard they TRY to make it, in an effort to make me buy something... lets face it, games are MEANT to be completed, these days...
if they want to make the game more difficult, more power to them, that just makes my experience that much better... i draw the line at being required to purchase storyline elements that would not allow me to complete the game, otherwise... i dont see that happening here.
