None, absolutly NONE of this should have been paid for content, all of it should be unlocks that you earn in-game.

EDIT@ 3600 MSP is obscene, just throwing that out there....

Totally not worth it.

One Paul Barnett declared 775 million dollars to be an illegal amount of money. I did not know Whiskey Media had so much money.

You know what's really sad? The horse armor was actually cooler than this stuff.

This is true, but at least the game isn't devoid of skins that are not behind the pay wall. There are still other unlockables. Say no to bad DLC guys, and avoid paying for this trash.

What the what?

This.. just hurts... Somewhere a kid is dying of hunger because rubbish DLC is EVIL!

I'd like to add, as someone who has some knowledge of modeling/texturing, the non animated floral pattern shotgun would take about 10 minutes doing.. It's absolutely unbelievable that they sell that piece of shit. The rainbow pattern one would take longer, depending on if they had that crazy animated rainbow texture lying around (I'm almost certain they did.. cause why would they bother doing that from scratch...). These textures all kinda look like something they did to check for stretching in the UV Maps... (when you unwrap the mesh (wireframe) of a model for texturing purposes, sometimes you fudge it up and certain areas get larger or smaller than they should actually be, and that creates deformities in how the texture bitmap covers the model. Often times people apply a checkerboard pattern to a model to see if it distributes evenly. This could also be done with the beautiful floral tapestry.. And it kinda feels like that's exactly what they did..)

Horse armor was actual DOWNLOADABLE content.

To me this looks like someone at Microsoft played lil ol' Team Fortress 2 and had the amazing idea to make Gears 3 the testing ground for the in-game item store. (Except in TF2 you can get the item you want without spending a penny)

Morons will probably buy these, other publishers see this, now every game with MP has a totally innocent in-game real money item store.

Thanks for doing this. We all now know just how dumb and worthless these skins are.

Posted by 2HeadedNinja

Even though I know better I hope nobody buys this stuff.

Yup, I'm watching it now and this shit is really ridiculous. There will never be enough Gears fanboyism, and I already have a lot of it, in me to justify paying for that stuff. At least this stuff isn't detracting much from the actual game. I'm going to wait a bit for more info on the season pass stuff.

Use your words Jeff!
 
Lol man that's a lot of money, but I know Jeff is the guy to do it and show us. Look at game room...

Posted by gaggle64

This would stop if we stopped paying for it folks. I know that's obvious but it's worth repeating.

Posted by Teizen

$1.00 would make more sense.

Posted by spiceninja

For the low low price of "too fucking much" you can make your weapons look like cheap squirt guns!

Posted by marbleCmoney

I don't really get the outrage about this stuff. It doesn't really affect the game at all. It's arguably overpricing weapon textures, but if you think they're dumb, or that they're too expensive you don't have to buy them.

I'm not trying to defend this DLC here, but it's not really the same as horse armor. At least here you're playing with other people and your skins can give you a unique look in multiplayer matches if you care about that kind of stuff.

Also, it's pretty clear that everyone isn't cool with it.

Does the rainbow gun shoots rainbows?

Posted by NinjaCommando

MIDNIGHT RELEASE!!!

Posted by cap123

I kind of feel sick that even jeff spent money on this. The bad guys are winning.

Posted by mekklesak

With this new in-game pay model will Jeff and the crew have enough reserves from their company credit card to answer every paid DLC question down the road? Or will it all be just, diminishing returns? 

Posted by RobotHamster

As an artists who makes art for games as a living, the majority of those skins probably take no more than 5 minutes each, the animated ones a little bit more.

Its just crazy how much they're charging for this stuff and thats its already on the disk, but people will buy it and we'll see more unfortunately.

Posted by PatPandaHat

So, this is how Jeff is getting rid of the Game Room purchasing shakes.

Wow 240 MSP. What a ripoff.

Posted by Kucheeky

This should be free.

@thatdutchguy89: How many more moves?

Posted by itswrong2bfrench

These skins look like texture bugs.

Posted by jorbear

Sorry Jeff, but I'm so gonna do this.

Jeff, you only added fuel to th--

God damn it.

Posted by Sarumarine

I am okay with Giant Bomb spending money for educational or information purposes. They should call this segment: "Don't Be Crazy"

Posted by jotadex

r you kidding me???

Posted by shatteringlast

The end was hilarious. The rest however, makes me sad.... :(

Posted by Metal_Mills

Jeff, you're just fueling the fire. :(

Posted by MiniPato

lol, their reaction to the rainbow skin was hilarious.

Posted by RampageAssassin

This is really dirty and Epic should be ashamed for themselves. Don't sell it just let us unlock it somehow !

Posted by Deric

Cliff said that money goes towards paying for the servers, which is great. Ill most likely buy a couple packs. The Team Metals one looks quite nice. To anyone who pays more than half the price of the full game for skins, get help.
