This is absolutely correct, though I think there was confusion at the time it was announced, so they may simply have mis-remembered the information.SilverUchiha said:While I don't disagree that Catwoman thing was stupid, I want to point out an inaccuracy with the information.
The Catwoman content in Batman: Arkham City was no pre-order exclusive (if I recall correctly). It was content only available to NEW copies of the game, and not used. You could pay for that content separately if you bought used, but unless the prices of the game was low enough for you to break even, you were getting ripped off. Again, I could possibly be wrong, but I thought that was the original issue at hand and that it wasn't just pre-order specific.
I hate season passes and dlc most of the time, but I am currently playing the bl2 dlc (have beat torgue and capt. scarlett) and love it. I don't really see what your problem with it was.ObsidianJones said:I know this whole thing is about pre-order bonuses, but I'm now considering a Season Pass to be a Pre-order 'bonus'. It's basically saying hey, we gutted this game, but if you sign up now, you can get the rest for a cheaper deal! Here's the one part about season passes I really dislike, and it somewhat takes both sides of the argument.
Sometimes, it just becomes about beating a dead horse with a stick.
Borderlands 2. A Game that I loved. A game that I have two hundred hours logged. I played the ever loving stuff out of that game. I dug it. It was for me. Then low and behold, a season pass? Sure! Give me all you got!
Then the season pass content was a bit... lackluster. A lot of it felt sparse and underpopulated compared to the main game. Captain Scarlet and her Pirate Booty felt a bit hallow. It took an obviously enjoyable game and, in my point of view, slowly made it lifeless. Because 'Hey, sexual innuendo' and 'hey... not really new guns, but new skins and the damage is amped up!' really doesn't capture the need of 'I want to fucking save these people from this asshole' drive I had in the main campaign.
-sidebar. If any game needed a mortality system, it was Borderlands 2. I hate Handsome Jack with a passion. I realize I'm probably literally the only person who does. I think a lot of people would have ended up wanting to join Handsome Jack because he was 'funny'. It already was an open world game, why not let the player choose sides?
Closer to the mark would be Asura's Wrath, aka the game that the never told anyone was going to be the first entry in a series, and that's just me being generous and assuming Capcom did what they did because lack luster sales stopped that from branching out instead of purposefully selling me a $60 game with an unlockable a cliffhanger I had to shell out for DLC later to get a resolution to.Groverfield said:What about the whole Capcom "We already have the better version of the game we're releasing made, but you have to buy the inferior version and wait till we sell enough copies of the inferior game before we release the better version." or "there wasn't enough twitter hype about a game that we hardly even announced that we were considering, so we're not gonna make it. What about Sega of America's "We're going to localize PSO2 to the US, it should take us a month or two longer than expected. Full english translation and servers ready for a year, let's not say anything and shut down the servers to its predecessors."
Yes, I know that has nothing to do with preordering. It's still crap.
I would have been truly surprised if this thread didn't have someone willing to make a Destiny pun in it.lastjustice said:I don't want the code. It is not my "Destiny" to beta test it heh. Yeah this week's video reminded me of this.... http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=331
I was thinking to myself playing Soul Calibur 5. Like I remember when I just had go thru all different modes and fight a ton of stuff to unlock any extra characters and extra outfits and weapons. Now....go buy any special outfits from the online store. I liked it better when playing the game was it's own reward. Not having my credit card be the skeleton key to cool stuff.
