I'm not going to try and say the bad outweighs the good, but for people who really love Far Cry, this juicy tidbit of info may just inspire them to consider that season pass down the line. I'm still going to pre-order, cant imagine wasting one more day before I get my hands on this destined to be masterpiece.

Announcing it before the game is released a huge, huge no though as it gives the consumer the impression that it's ME3 day 1 DLC all over again (cut content to make DLC rather than plans to make DLC, I think their pr needs to come up with a better way of communicating this).

I've never really hated DLC much, since even without it, the games are usually pretty complete (haven't played one yet that really felt it NEEDED the dlc).

That being said, though, am I the only one disappointed with how Far Cry 4 looks? I was watching gamescom footage of upcoming games recently, and the list of PHENOMENAL-looking games is huge. Hellraid, Dying Light, Dead Island 2, and quite a few console games look fantastic.

Far Cry 4, though, just looked like a slightly re-skinned version of FC3. I hate using this phrase, but it really did look like an FC3 expansion pack.

As much as I loved Far Cry 3... I may have to wait for a sale to pick up Far Cry 4. This DLC crap is getting out of hand.
post #25 of 158
Sick of season passes!!!!!!!! I purchased the destiny one ive got nothing out of it and im sick of playing destiny now, so it was a waste to get the season pass!!!!

STOP DOING THIS !!!!! NO DLC, NO SEASON PASSES

Ubisoft's new motto: we'll fling poo and see if someone eats it then wonder why people will one day realize what it tastes like and stop eating it.

The twist is that people will still end up eating it anyways. I know I gave a lot of excuses in the FF13 thread for SE's bad port but this is inexcusable.

The only season pass I ever bought was for Borderlands 2, which was worth it at the time because I got the base game on sale for 40 and the season pass for 15, so it ended up less than full retail anyway. Gearbox does DLC right, IMO. Their add on campaigns are pretty solid.

Paying for an additional multiplayer mode and single, small missions is just ridiculous though.

Between this and all their other statements recently, Ubisoft is digging themselves a mass grave.

Pretty much the same for me. I have drastically cut back on purchasing any type of Triple A games from any company over the past 4-5 years. I refuse to pay for an incomplete product to only have the rest of it purposely withheld from the final product only to be sold to me for more money upon release. These type of games are the ones I wait to go on extreme discount, are given away for free, or find a way to borrow it. Gaming today is a joke with all the cut backs of quality, resolution, frame rate, content and stupidly overpriced games. only game I bought this year was Guild Wars 2 and really only looking forward to Witcher 3 and GTA5 next year.

There's a difference between a $15 port of a 5 year old game that was never meant to run on pc and day 1 DLC though (assumed day 1 DLC, which should be the issue here, not DLC in general).

I'd spend $50 for a non-pirated version.

$90? Nope.
