Should I buy the season pass?

#1 Edited by Cubidog1 (246 posts) -

I've heard the dlc are a couple hours long, which would be dissapointing. But i love Saints Row. I am about half way through Saints Row The Third. Hopefully the last one will be super good. Tell me how long it would be to beat the previous two dlc's and if I should buy the season pass.

I've heard Genki Bowl VII is short (and bland) and Gangstas in Space is also only about an hour or so long.

So... only if you really, really like this game and really, really are desperate for more.

I wouldn't say so. I think it's best you just wait for it to go on sale because A) They're both only like an hour each and B) Genki Bowl VII is a load of garbage considering the price. Gangstas in Space I don't think is all that good either, though a lot of people may disagree. But Genki Bowl at the very least is not worth investing towards the Pass for and is unanimously disliked, and you also don't even get any of the added clothing/weapons/vehicle skins shit by purchasing the pass either.

Frankly I'd say it's worth skipping the pass and maybe just get Gangstas in Space and the Trouble with Clones DLC. I can't be bothered doing the math, but maybe you'll actually save some money that way? Plus it's hard to say at this point just how good the Clones DLC will be (though given the trend, that'll also probably only be like an hour long), but if you hold off the Pass then you might at least get some time to think it over and decide which of the two you'll want to get, because no matter what you decide with Gangstas in Space and Clones, Genki Bowl is best skipped over all the same.

@Cubidog1 I REALLY liked saints row the third. both DLCs are really short. I think combined I must of spent about 6-7 hours playing the DLC (including achievement hunting)

I mean Microsoft themselves assign gamers points depending on how much depth there is to the content and both packs combined are 200g

Now I've had the season pass since I finished sr3 and after playing both I would say if you TRULY want more saints row go and get it. But if money is tight you would be best to hold of until there is a sale on this stuff because like crack every bit you get leaves you wanting more even though at the time everything is great

You save a dollar by getting the season pass instead of buying them separately which is shitty savings. You do get that Nyteblade stuff, but imho that stuff isn't really that good. I'm waiting for it to go on sale. In the meantime, I can work on the saints book stuff or play it through again if I need a fix.

Honestly, the one thats been somewhat worth it has been Gangstas in Space (out of the pricey DLC anyway) and the only thing I actually enjoyed out of all the DLC is the Shark Shotgun. But even then, Gangstas in Space was still not worth a purchase IMO.

No way, man. The DLC has been butt so far.

If you go to the THQ website, you can get the season pass for half off, assuming you're playing on PC.

The coupon code is "GameShadow50", just use it at the end of transaction and you get all the DLC for $10. If it's not worth 20 bucks, it's definitely worth 10.

If the Season Pass included all of the DLC I might recommend it. As it is? Not even slightly worth it.

Thank you! I've been on and off about getting this because of the questionable value, but I just managed to pick it up for AU$9.50 on the UK THQ store.

I'd say no. I bought it and have been very disappointed. Wait to see if the final Clones dlc is a game-changer first, which I doubt it will be.

Thanks everybody. I think I won't buy it. Maybe I'll buy the last one if its good.
