Let me put it to you this way.

Say I buy the game new and download the "free content".

But I don't really get time to play the game until the fall (which happens with my backlog because of school).

Now I'm planning on going overseas to teach English this year. Say I take the game with me overseas, because PS3 games are region free and I get a PS3. I've now automatically excluded myself from that content unless I decide to wait and bring the code overseas. But if I ever come back to Canada and want to play the game, I've still excluded myself from the content, unless I buy another copy of the game.

That's just bullshit. There's no reason for that, except for greed. It's not rewarding anyone.

Just put in your PSN account and all your content is available to be redownloaded. I have done this several times when I lived in Japan and came back to the US.

And Dragon, that's the point. The second edition will be out LATER. This isn't a new practice. They sell Uncharted 2 now for a cheaper price than it launched it with ALL the DLC included. If you want to play it when it releases with the extra content, you buy it new or purchase a pass.

I try my best not to buy games used, specifically to support the developers and publishers in an industry where margins can be paper thin on games for the hardcore.  Sure, you have titles like Call of Duty or World of Warcraft, which make an obscene amount of money, but considering that this is a brand new IP from a combination of a new company and a developer that was about to cease to exist, I have no problem handing over my dollars.

This.

I cant believe how many of you are falling for this fake dlc pr spin move

I also cant believe how many of you are approving it.


Its really sleazy


Seriously, how dare they provide free content to people who buy the game new.

It isnt dlc. Its in game content that they cut, and said it was dlc in order to make there piracy prevention method noble.

It is DLC. It's content that would have been paid DLC, because it wasn't finished when the game was pressed to disc. Because EA uses Online Passes, they utilized that as a method to give the content FOR FREE to everyone who buys the game new (in other words, who actually gives their money to the developers and not to Gamestop vis-a-vis buying used). It's not a piracy prevention method, it's a used game sales deterrent for EA. Would you rather they not have this content at all? Or would you rather that instead of charging only those who buy used, they just charged everyone $10 for it?

And as Kyuu said, please edit your posts instead of double/tripling.

EDIT:

And for that matter, how is preventing piracy something that ISN'T noble? Stealing their game wouldn't exactly be a noble thing, either.

Once again, the conservative sandwich-heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor!

Did somebody mention Tales of the Abyss? Color Zoidberg intrigued.

Can't agree with worst OST ever. The soundtrack is actually full of really awesome music. And there are two Chocobo themes, and one of them isn't an abomination.

The other one is, though :)

Well, you've always left me smiling and satisfied.



I approve.

Gotta agree with John, here. It feels like a fusion of Darksiders and Fable.

I played Koudelka after beating Shadow Hearts 1 and 2. What did you think of it?

(If nothing else, it has awesome music.)

Just so everyone knows in advance, if Rob doesn't like it I'm probably going to destroy him utterly. So if the podcast suddenly drops off, you'll know why.

I was already pretty interested in this, but the demo totally sold me. Classic RE-style pacing with the controls and perspective of RE4? That's basically what it is, and it's awesome. Also, though I don't know how well it would stand up over time, I was cackling like an idiot with the gyro aiming. Great game, definitely going to pick it up. When does it come out, again?
1409  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast Thread on: January 14, 2012, 12:34:44 AM
It's available on Steam and Chrome Web Store too, don't forget!

So I take it you guys found FF's Tingle.

I hate tingle with the fire of a thousand dying stars.
