Weak DLC so far?

#1 Posted by Phoenix778m (263 posts) -

Is it just me or does the DLC seem weak? I would rather have more up front then just; outfit + gun, outfit + gun. Just wondering if anyone else is feel'n me.

I think the mission dlcs ain't out yet? the descriptions of season pass says there's gonna be 3 mission dlcs

I dunno, the guns you get seem pretty godamn awesome. A godamn Shark that comes out of the ground? Come one, you can't say that's not awesome.

Mission Dlcs are not out yet.

I wish they were included in the Season Pass. 40 weeks of $2 weapon+car packs are gonna get expensive after a while.

I can wait for a big Weapons Pack in the future.

Chum gun does nothing for me. There's enough in the game to keep me satisfied for now. I haven't seen anything that catches my eye yet. I will definitely get down on the mission packs considering my love of porn stars.

It certainly hasn't been something I want to pony up for, but it seems alright for what it is

Seeing how the names of the mission dlc's could be very much like things from the main game and the fact that SR2's mission dlc's sucked ass, I am not expecting good value from new content.

I really hope there's a free pack of outfits from the last game. Where's my hotdog suit? >:(

The Outfit/Weapon packs don't even really look appealing, I don't think I'd use them even if they were already in the game.

The Shark Gun has some merit in that it's unique, but the Z-Style and Explosive Combat Trailers looked so boring.

I'd pay 10 bucks for a pack of like 30 more articles of clothing.

You know the DLC is weak when they try to sell you cheat codes.....
 
when you know the codes will eventually be all over the net for free.....
 
 for a game that, when your maxed out, pretty much has you playing as if you had cheat codes
 
>_>
 
I did buy the shark gun just for the "lulz" as they say. It's cool but i irritates me that it takes so long for the shark to come out. Not to mention that there are some enemies (brutes aside) and some indoor environments that don't react well or at all to the gun

Armed and Dangerous already did it!

I didn't mean first ever, but Unique to the game. The Z-Style pack adds a silly suit and a new skin for the Shotgun you already get in game. Explosive Warfare pack adds a Grenade Launcher, which you get as an attachment to the Rifle. The Shark gun doesn't have an equivalent in the game already.

Give me the Decker/Morningstar/Luchador clothing options. Specifically the Deckers though.

Shark gun is AWESOME. The grenade thing and the shutgun meh though. I haven't seen if anything is out after that. Shark gun is a must buy. Others are not good dlc

I wouldn't mind having more of the melee weapons seen in the main story of the game (ie. shark, blow up doll) but checked a few places online to get an idea when the mission dlc is coming & it's going to be a little while though tempted to get the season pack then not worry so much about having enough for getting them when they do come out.

I'd be into a big pack of more clothes and customization options, but none of the stuff that's out now really seems necessary.

@Subjugation: Bit of a spoiler, but during an assasination mission you get access to decker clothing wich you can then use whenever you want from there on.

If it's one thing that Volition is not known for, it's spectacular DLC packs. Red Faction Guerrilla had a really good map pack for the multiplayer side of the game, but the Demons of the Badlands DLC was incredibly short and kind of underwhelming for the most part. Hopefully, they learned some lessons with previous experiences and deliver the goods whole-hog on Saints Row: The Third. Even if they don't, the main game is enough to make me smile.

While naturally no one can judge thus far since there's been no substantial DLC, I'm personally a lil peeved that they're releasing all of these smaller items that aren't apart of the Season Pass... I mean the whole point of a Season Pass is usually to pay for all DLC in advance for a discount.

The whole Season Pass concept has been a great method for essentially allowing the more dedicated fans to be rewarded and pay for all the DLC, which they may of purchased anyway, for a discount price. I've thought of it as a great way forward for DLC in general, but skimming off some of the extras as THQ have done is taking a step backwards and is frankly kinda revolting.

@Abyssfull: It's for this reason that i find the concept of Season passes in general to be complete bullshit. They never really explicitly state what your getting and still seem to release DLC that some how falls outside of the season pass. 
 
The way gears 3 handled all the weapon skins was fuckin ridiculous. All of that shit should have been free to people who invested in the season pass.

Give it time, it’s not like they stuck it on the disk or anything. *cough* Gears.

#25 Posted by Kandycane2029 (511 posts) -

Haven't checked out any of the DLC yet. I wanted to get the Season Pass or whatever it's called, but I decided to hold off until mission DLC is available after I hit 100% game progress and achievements pretty fast.

#26 Posted by charlie_victor_bravo (1066 posts) -

Wohoo! Warrior pack is out with 3 new costumes! Wait, 4 new costumes (wasn't space helmet thing already there)? AND ALL OF THEM LOOK LIKE CRAP!

Seriously, these should come with mission DLC's or with season pass, not as separate "on disc DLC".

Yeah season pass stuff starts in January. Never been one to spend cash on weapons and clothing DLC for games but...it's a SHARK.....it's a GUN........totally worth it.
