Alrighty, I created this thread to simply see what your viewpoints on DLC is. Meaning, do you think they are priced right? Is the content good enough? The Hours that it takes to beat is good? Anything. For me, I can't say much on DLC meaning that I've never really bought DLC but have gotten some from a friend every now and then. But, I've been seeing some DLC that's been being released and it kind of bothers me due to the fact of how overpriced they are and how long they take to come out. Example, take Mass Effect 3's From Ashes DLC, a VERY important character in the game that is pretty much story essential but is taken out of the game and released for $9.99 on Day One unless you bought the N7 Edition. That's fcuking bullshit due to the fact that he's critical in the game. And for DAY ONE?!?! C'MON! They are literally saying, “Here's the game $59.99 (sorry I'm using the dollar sign, in America…) plus, get the rest of the game for $9.99!” I know Day One DLC willl not end but I'm kind of saying that if you're going to do it, do it right. Such as maybe saying, “Oh guys, sorry we are releasing DLC on Day One, we'll make it free () for the inconvience since we could not fit it all on the disc.” Besides that, I think story type DLC should be lowered in price or made to be longer as I heard the Harley Quinn DLC was 2 hrs for $9.99?!?! I know we have expansions and stuff but still, 2 hours?!? This is kind of getting to long but I would love to hear what you guys think of DLC in general, hopefully you can understand my viewpoint on it… if not oh wellJune 2, 2012 at 7:35 pm #71893gr8jrfanMember
Dude, I had bought the N7 edition, and Javik wasn't included! Basically all it was was some artwork, a steelbook, some good in game guns and an N7 hoodie for Shepard. I don't mind DLC generally. These days campaign length is pretty nill so I'll gladly shell out a small fraction of what I bought it for for more content. What pisses me off is obviously the way Bioware did ME3 (I put TWENTY more dollars down for useless shit, the least you could give me is the full game) theway Capcom do it, taking content off the disc, to sell it later for DLC, and then again in their” Super Hyper Mega Ultimate editions”. It's instances like that that make me glad I stick to MK. And I think the worst of anyone is without a doubt Activision. They charge $15 for MAPS, some from past games, when they could offer them for free or much cheaper. It's like “What? You still want more of my money? These maps are from COD 4!! Why would I pay twice? And these new maps suck anyways!” I do think some people have done it really well. LA Noire offered the Rockstar Pass, which made all the DLC worth the price. Rock Band released (or releases, not sure if they still do) new songs every week for low prices, assuring that you'd play the game for a long time with that service. Battlefield 3, while still selling maps, I think do it really well. You get more guns, trophies, assignments, and thoroughly replayable maps, that DONT suck like COD. I like DLC, but only if the devlopers goal with it is making more content, not pinching more from my wallet.June 2, 2012 at 8:14 pm #71895emdeepeeMember
For me its all about value for money and unfortunately most DLC is far from that, hence the reason I recently bought the platinum version of Mafia 2.
Although I bought all the Burnout Paradise DLC it was a bit hit (Big Surf Island) and miss (Legendary cars). Same with Resi 5, in retrospect the Versus mode was a complete waste of my time and money, but I managed to pick up the two expansions with discount and they were okayish.
I'd love to pick up some of the car packs for NFS: Hot Pursuit (to get a few extra trophies) but paying what I would consider over inflated prices for what is essentially re-skinned cars does annoy me, same with all the extra characters for games such as Uncharted etc…..
As for Harley Quinn, well as much as enjoyed spending an extra 2 hours in Arkham City I think that £6.49 was a little over priced for what was far from essential (the trophy whore in me couldn't help myself though).
Its a shame that more companies don't offer discounts on DLC thats over 2 years old as those who desperately want it will buy it at release, whereas tight b@st@rds such as myself are happy to purchase a little further down the line.June 2, 2012 at 8:42 pm #71897jenkem_addict88Member

Definitely. Capcom and their greedy ass tricks for DLC is terrible and people still buy them!!!! I might finally give in to buying some DLC soon for Dragon Age: Origins as that game has fair prices, nice trophies, and a good length to each.
