Are you implying we have to buy every bit of DLC?

How can you not see what you're buying? Not sure what the point of that sentence was.

Don't care about sandwichs or Iphones, only the Smash DLC.

"Oh gods, I'm gonna go bankrupt because this smash dlc is $3 more expensive than some guy on the internets thinks it should be!" Uhhhhhhh no, lol.


Yeah because i dont have to buy these expensive stuff its not expensive? How much nonsense is that argumentation?

 

Nothing is expensive because you dont have to buy it. wtf.


Don't know don't care as that's not my argument, just you trying to put words in my mouth.

Bottomline, if a $3 difference is seriously keeping you from buying a character, you weren't really interested in that character anyway.

I's definitely more expensive than I was expecting. Then again, I didn't expect there to be this much DLC at all.

Its a 3€ difference per character. We dont know how many will follow.

At the moment you will get like ~8% addiotional contennt (compared to the game without dlcs) and have to pay ~half the games price. This is out of any proportions.

Also its kind of pay to win. Im glad i suck pretty much at smash and i will never buy those dlcs to support them, but think about it. If your playing semi professional, alot online on high rank, you need to know how each character do play to counter him. So this is even kind of pay to win. Without buying the new fighters you will have a huge disadvantage fightem them, because you will have alot more issues to learn how they do play. This is just ridicoulus. This dlcs have a worse price/content relation then most things ea have done the past years.

And dont tell me its so hard to make those fighters. Ever looked at what the witcher 3 team will offer you for a 20€ season pass? THAT is hard to make. THAT is worth the price. Smash is a rip off.

Nintendo do know that many people love smash that they dont care for that "some euros". Alot people just got a wii u to play this game. So rip them off, nothing ill support, even as a nintendo fan.

Well this has nothing to do with what I said, just more arbitrary rules (price based on porportion as if all $60 games offered the same value as one another), misconceptions (you do not need to play as a character to learn how to play against them) and stating opinion as fact (perceived value is relative here). But fine, if supporting a game that's already given me hundreds of hours of enjoyment by buying more content for even more hours of fun, then sure, I'll gladly get ripped off!

if it sells this content on a 400% price increase then yes. How do you learn to play against the new fighters without having them available offline ? please explain.

By playing against them, duh.

so you have to play online against them and will loose in first time. You have no influence in how often you can play against them. The first fights youl will probl. have no idea how they will perform/what they can do. You cant test anything. you will loose ranks and get looses everytime new dlcs arrive because you have to play instant online against them

You cant even be sure if you really know how the charactr plays, maybe your opponents dont use all abilities or play the fighter wrong

seems pretty much pay2win for me



DLC in general has been ridiculous, but people have been clamoring for Nintendo to jump on the bandwagon. Be careful what you ask for xD.

In regards to the pay to win argument....what are you talking about. I don't have the characters and can play against them just fine online.....I don't understand your argument there.



$5 is pretty normal for a DLC fighting game character. Ryu may be a dolar too high, but then again he is a crossover chaarcter, and that comes with liscensing fees and stuff like that, so it's understandable.

Their DLC pricing for Smash seems in line with the norm. (Which may not be a good thing.) Though the Mii fighter costumes seemed a bit steep in comparison.

Though I'm more impressed by how low they kept the price of the tracks in the MK8 DLC.

How do you know how to counter them? Im alot better vs fighters i played on myself because i know what they can do/will do in which situation.
