Wait sm4sh DLC is great now? if so, then SF5 DLC deserves a fckin gold medal 

Smash 4 DLC completely puts Street Fighter V to shame just for who we got and how the full game was actually content complete.

and USF4 balance makes sm4sh look like an amateurish fighting game. What's the point of shifting the topic here?

Because you compared one of the most barebones fighting games with it actually having 2 fucking season passes vs one of the most content complete packages of the entire generation and actually insisted the former had better DLC.



The only thing that upsets me about this is that fans are greedy as fuck and don't want to support the developers who gave us a massive world with enough content to go past the asking $60 price. Now they are giving us even more content to justify the size of their game and the work that went into that game.

That being said I am disappointed that it's an all or nothing deal. I really want to buy the story package with the extra dungeon but I don't care about the shirt, harder difficulty, or the extra challenge shrines. That being said everything for $20 is a steal considering the final package being story content and dungeon is often priced at $15-20 in most games anyways. So we're actually getting A LOT of value for $20 in terms of DLC price. This is a very, very good deal and a very low price point. I don't think people are looking at the value of what we are getting, how long this game has been in development, how expensive the game probably is, nor the level of quality this game will most likely be upon launch. Some games are worth far more than the $60 price point. It's simply that simple. There are actually a few companies that do DLC a premium prices not to rip people off, but because their development cost is higher than the MSRP of the game. This also protects the staff working at the company so they aren't let go. While it's quite obvious Nintendo has more than enough money in the bank that this isn't the case, some 3rd part developers are not as fortunate if they want to live up to the quality they are known for.

The way I view DLC in the board view of things. It's an opportunity to TIP the developers for their hard work and potentially fantastic content. It's not a mentality that is often viewed by many gamers, but it's one that I feel that should be shared. You often tip for good service, so why not tip for a fantastic product that thousands of man hours went into to provide you a form of entertainment?

Easy Street Fighter V should of come outthis year with all season 1 characters and premium stages on the disc and actually be content complete. If you launch barebones at full 60 dollars and have the fucking balls to sale 2 season passes then you dersved to fail just like Street Fighter V did sales wise. 

The fact they actually keep releasing paid DLC when they still don't have an arcade mode shows how awful that game's business model truly is.

Like I said I'm a bit conflicted about this.

I'm not a fan of it, but DLC isn't inherently bad. I'm okay with it if they're a meaningful expansion to the base game, meaning extra (story- or level-)content that is not and would not have been in the game. That's why the holiday pack seems fine to me; it adds a new storyline and a new dungeon. I don't believe the train of thought that these would be taken from a finished game only to be sold back to the player later. I think the game as it is will be the completed game regardless of whether there would be DLC at all. There isn't really any reason to think otherwise when the game seems huge and rich with content. In fact, since it seems like a real expansion to the game, the €$20 asking price could be worth it for this content pack alone.

Those bonus-items like the shirt are obviously throwaway and nobody will care, but those aren't exactly necessary to enjoy the game anyway. The first DLC pack that releases in the summer though, that one's shady. I assume the Cave of Trails is just a Cave of Ordeals/Savage Labyrinth type thing, which most modern Zelda games have included from the start, so that probably should have just been in the game. Then there's the "Extra Map Feature" and the "New Hard Mode". At a glance those should also be things that should be in the game from the start, but the problem is we don't know what they are really. If that hard mode is like a Master Quest, re-arranging dungeons and enemies then that would be great, but if it is the regular Hero Mode that's been in Zelda games for a while now, and that Map Feature is something as standard as fast-travel, then that would be a douchebaggery move. And Nintendo would definitely deserve to be called out for leaving basic gameplay elements out to ask money for them later.

Anyway my principles are in a twist with this, because I already know there's no way I'll leave a brand-new Zelda dungeon and storyline unplayed.

Imo it's the exact opposite. There's a shit ton of games that isn't worth 60 $, yet the publishers ALWAYS ask for that price, just because gamers are stupid enough to pay it. I don't think there is any game that is worth more than 60 bucks. Especially not Zelda that will sell huge quantities anyway, they will get their money back just because of the amount of copies being sold. For the same reason GTA 5 is also not worth more than 60 $. The content in this game is friggin' insane, yet when selling more than 70 million units, you don't need a high price tag to get your money back and loads and loads of cash on top. Plus, in that game, DLC is free.

While I am very certain Zelda is worth 60 $, I won't pay any more than that for the complete package. I once spent 130 € on a single game, which was Battlefield 4 with the Premium shit. It wasn't worth its money. I had a shitload of fun with it, but it still wasn't worth 130 €. I'm never gonna make that mistake again. I could have waited and get the complete package for 20 € just a year later. ´That's what I'm doing these days with every game that comes with DLC. Zelda is no exception.

I've never seen such an evenly spread poll over so many options.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Nothing, because the game itself is massive and full of content. The DLC is there as an option if you want to expand the game that little bit longer. Same with Smash on Wii U. I bought only a couple of bits of DLC for that, but the game Itself was stuffed with content you could easily get by without purchasing any of the DLC. For me DLC is only an issue when the main game is light on content and its blatant its been butchered down as a means to get people to buy the extras.



I'm fine with this. I think BOTW will be more than value for my money and could be one of the greatest games of all time. £18 for dlc is not that bad and a new story I'm kinda excited. Could you imagine if after completing ocarina of time Nintendo said they would add more content for £18, every one would have gone crazy for it.
