Fine, I'll roll over and take it too. Sucks is all.

Gears 3 is the free-to-play/micro-transactions business model, with a full retail buy-in price.

I'm angry, okay? Internet angry. Really really mad. I love Gears 3, I think it's insanely well polished in every way. Also Gears 2 MP was fantastically supported from broken to almost functional for over a year.

By now you should all be aware there's maps and a ton of characters on disc. (On top of this weapons skins business.) Most likely to end up as on-disc DLC, and from all corners of the internet it seems I can't find anyone as upset as me about it?

To me there's an element of trust that comes with DLC; that I paid for the very best complete product Epic could give me by the time they pressed a disc. Now it appears they held back and want to charge for work they've already done, and you and I already paid for?

Does that make you upset? Or are you kinda meh...

Correct. Best in a loooooong time (and it's always good).

I had a similar experience in ME2. 
 
Before you start the last mission I knew those ship upgrades were for something, but I neglected them the whole time. As the cut scene started playing and my crew died one after another I knew I screwed it up. When Tali got bit, I ran and turned off the console. 
 
But I didn't feel right about it. 
  
Later in that mission when Kelly died I was super upset about it as well, but instead of trying to right that wrong, I decided that I had to deal with it. That was a very real outcome that I could have avoided but screwed around too much before hand to do so. 
 
I learned to live with the outcome of my actions, because doing the wrong thing made me feel bad, but turning off the console to try and be 'perfect' felt worse.

Like him. Hope Jeff and Ryan agree to this 'agressive self-invite' strategy.

Speaks volumes about the market that this has the Prey name on it at all.
