Well that's just it, PC wasn't even going to get Dead Space 2 until the community demanded it. EA wasn't interested in a PC port so it's lucky the PC even has it right now.
And if you didn't have a console - I'd understand. But you do have a PS3 and probably access to PSN. What does it take to download a demo and try it out?

Make your decision to purchase the game based on its completeness without any DLC included. Then don't buy it if significant parts of the storyline or critical features have been left out.
And the game is complete, and then some, without these two campaign missions. Especially with the fact that these campaign missions are supposed to cover a story arch that even Dead Space fans didn't know existed till now.
I can see how a team meeting with Visceral went.
"Hey guys, we're gonna port our Wii game to the PS3."
"But the Wii game sold only like 5 copies!"
"Damn - what are we gonna do?"
"How about he package it with Dead Space 2 in order to push limited edition sales?"
"Great idea! So now more fans will more or less be forced to know of it's existance!"
"But.... that also means the really bad and questionable ending will need to be fixed..... or we're going to loose credibility"
"Then - we'll fix it in Dead Space 2!"
"How the hell do we fit it into the game when it has nothing to do with it?"
It makes sense. The people who don't know or care about Extraction won't need to buy it.
I rather pay for DLC that I can play and helps the story rather than listen to audio logs or read passages. It's also not like this is some kind of "side quest" like alot of DLC has to do with. This is main story related, but as far as Dead Space 2 goes it doesn't fit.

At that point who is to say that the plot holes were because of DLC or just bad storytelling if no one buys the DLC.
The thing is here the DLC has to do with a seperate game that has nothing to do with Dead Space 2's story. It was meh story telling with Extraction's ending that left a hole open but how else are they to fix it? It's not like they can do another comic book or animated movie considering they have like 10 of them.Edited by OmegaNemesis28 - 1/26/11 at 10:12am
