Season Pass. Yay or Nay?
How the fuck should we know? But as a general rule, DLC season passes are a poor investment unless you KNOW you want it all. For example, if you really like Halo, then sure, you probably want all the DLC maps. Otherwise, I find that I just choose the 1 or 2 pieces if DLC that actually seem appealing.
I'm going to wait until all three pieces are released, if all three are decent enough chunks of content then I'll probably get the season pass, otherwise I'll just individually download the ones I'm interested in.
If they turn out to be packs basically just expanding the gear and vigors available to you without anything great in terms of story I'll probably give the season a pass.
I liked the story and world so much that anything relating to it, I feel I would like to experience, so I bought the season pass after giving it much thought. I feel like I trust Irrational enough to give me some quality stuff.
The only other season passes I ever bought were for Battlefield 3 and L.A. Noire, and I felt like I got my money's worth.
. Not sure I would be happy to have filler DLC, the way ME3 did it put me off.
Think if they did release DLC for this game it would have to be prequel stuff. I'd be cool with playing the game with prequel stuff through the antagonists point of view. I know irrational didn't develop Bioshock 2 but that Minerva Den DLC was fantastic.
Season Passes are about as stupid as pre-orders imo. Unless something is in a limited supply there's just no point to them.
How so? If you mean pre-paying before knowing the quality of the content, then yes that would be stupid. But what does getting a discount for buying all at once have to do with unlimited supplies?

That was my first point.
My second point was that incredibly early pre-purchasing (of both, DLCs and full game releases) would only make sense from the customer's point of view if the product was in limited supply.

No just buy the DLC when it comes out that you want, why would you gamble on DLC for like 10% of the final price upfront?
I really would love the DLC to be something big, like you play as comstock creating Columbia and fighting off the Chinese, but I will only give them my money if it's worthwhile.
I have learned that DLC can be extremely hit or miss, so, I'll play it by ear.
OP said it best, Saints Row 3 burned me (still love that base game) so I'll wait and see. If we get another dlc like Minerva's Den then I'm on board.
I went ahead and caved and got the Season Pass because I read that it gives you 5 more infusions and Gold Guns, and I need those gold guns for my 1999 run. Only the most falsest of shepherds walk with gold guns.
I was kind of bummed that, although you get 5 more infusions, you have to pick them up at the Blue Ribbon almost at the beginning, and by the time I bought the Pass, I was already up to Finkton Docks. Maybe next time, on 1987 mode.
I will buy the season pass when there are two packs out and they seem worthwhile. I'm not going to buy content that hasn't even been announced beyond, "we'll make some things."
People here are down about season passes. I have no problem with them. It's a discount over the normal DLC price (or tends to be. if not, you're doing something really dumb by buying). The problem is buying it before you know what you're getting.
