So this somehow happened

Kinda of went on a buying spree picking up a ton of games to play, so I have a few question about the DLC for some of the game I got. Namely Ausra's Warth, Enslaved and Mass Effect 3 (used collectors, came with everything but the codes). Which DLC is worth getting over the others? I may get two out of the three (nothing MP related)

I am thinking about picking up the extra characters for SFxT but still on the fence about that

Dude, great buys.

From what I've heard, the Asura's Wrath DLC is essential. Something about it actually being the end to the game. Also something about it being completely fucking bananas.

Based on the quick look, I'd say get the Enslaved DLC too. Looked pretty cool! I guess you could give it a look and see if it appeals to you.

Of course if you're really into Mass Effect go for those, but if you hadn't gotten the CE of 3, I would've said to get From Ashes. Since you did, there's not any I can recommend, having zero interest in any Mass Effect DLC.

Well, I have a pretty generic answer for you. Play the game and if you feel like you want to play more of it, buy the DLC. I haven't played through dlc for any of those games so can't recommend anything.

Pigsy's Perfect 10 was pretty good. But then I've heard it said that the Asura's Wrath dlc has the real ending of the game, which would seem to be a thing I'd want if I were to play that game. And the From Ashes dlc for Mass Effect did add quite an interesting element to Mass Effect 3...

Hmmm...

You can wait on Pigsy, as it's a stand alone thing. I'd say get either From Ashes or Asura's Wrath depending on which game you play first. I can't speak to the other ME3 dlc as I haven't played it. And who knows, maybe near the holidays the other stuff will go on sale and you can buy all of it?

Yeah, get Mass Effect 3's DLC and one of the other twos, but definitely From Ashes, it's great. Haven't played Asura's Wrath, Enslaved's DLC is good, but it doesn't tie into the storyline like ME3. That blends seamlessly into your playthrough, that's why I would get that for sure. Maybe pick up the other ME3 DLCs too, but I can't speak for them.

@TheHT: I picked up a used ME3 collector edition so the code was used

@pyromagnestir: I am going to be playing from the left starting from top to bottom, so hopefully there will be a sale during christmas

@G0DF4TH3R: Thats a good collection, Saints Row the Third was the best game from last year, but I think the Demon Souls servers have shut down though.

@Hizang: but I can still play the single player right? That is the only thing I care about

Posted by TheHT

@G0DF4TH3R: Then you should absolutely get From Ashes. The mission itself is OK, but the interactions with Javik throughout the game are well worth it.

@G0DF4TH3R: Yes you can, I never really cared for these games, but isn't online the whole point of what makes these games "fun"?

Talk about an overstatement. I've been playing it recently and I see nothing great about it.

@Baillie: Saints Row the Third is one of my favourite open world games, its humour is spot on and it's style is just fantastic. Its what I hoped GTAIV would be, but instead they took the more serious route.

@Hizang: I find the humour terrible and overly forced. I agree that GTAIV isn't the story direction I wanted, well maybe it was, but the characters involved do not help make it enjoyable. I also found the gameplay in IV much, much better than Saints Row.
