    Further regarding Bioware's choice in DLC squad-mate voice acting. (I know this was from a page back, but it struck me as poignant):
    Spoiler:

    I'm reserving my judgement for when I play the game, because alot of things in Mass Effect (everything?) is pretty silly/ridiculous/strange when taken out of context of the game.

    Remember that,
    Spoiler:

    I realize that but I think Bioware is just going for an impression rather than some hard factual link.

    It sounds like he's just complaining about the day 1 DLC, which we all know is ridiculous.

    We're not allowed to be upset about day 1 DLC? It's not going to affect my purchase, but you'd be an idiot to not think it's a bad route to go down'

    Let me ask you a question: Who has the superior product, someone who pays $60 for ME3 or someone who pirates it for free (for the single player)

    This is going backwards in terms of creating a money making product. Piracy is so easy on all 3 consoles and PC that doing shit like this definitely costs you sales, and not the people who are posting about boycotting it on facebook, but the legions who don't say anything but just chose to torrent it when they read about cut content for seperate sale

    No, we're absolutely allowed to be upset about Day 1 DLC. Day 1 DLC is what I was calling ridiculous.

    Day 1 stuff is sold on Day 1 because it's not ready when the game goes gold. you can do a lot in those weeks between finishing the game and the release date.

    Thing is...most of those legions who pirate it were going to do it anyway. They just use Day 1 DLC as an excuse to why they did it.

    I don't like day 1 DLC, but I don't think it somehow justifies pirating.

    That being said. I would rather leave that conversation alone because you start getting into pretty murky territory I'd rather not enter.

    I do think boycotting is a bit far, though. $10 is a fair price for what sounds like a good amount of content. I just don't want it to become a habit

    Pretty much

    the only day 1dlc I really don't care for is the stuff locked on the disc like gears 3

    but whatever I just didn't buy it because i thought it was silly, I would suggest the people complaining over this do the same instead of bitching to the internet constantly

    Yeah. I do have a problem with that too. I was fine with it when you got the guy for "free" when you bought a new copy but making people buy a copy then pay 10 bucks for it is a bit much to me.

    Like I was going to get the Collector's Edition regardless, that's why I'm somewhat whatever, but it isn't something I want to see become commonplace.

    Why? People are more than willing to pay for it. If people stopped paying for it, companies would stop providing it.

    In this case I feel the boycotters are misaimed. They should be telling people to buy the game and deliberately not buy the DLC if they want to be taken seriously and affect change. Otherwise they aren't even customers so who gives a damn what they think?

    I stopped 12 minutes in, I totally get where he's coming from, corporate greed is an issue.
    I'm pretty sure we just had a debate about price<-->product and greed.

    If people really cared they'd find out where Mr. Kotick lives and do horrible things to him instead of preaching from the safety of their armchairs.

    I have no problem with day 1 DLC. We already know the DLC wasn't done when they finished the 'base game,' if they're taking the time and effort to make more mass effect before release day then I'm not going to be angry about it.

    Stuff that is deliberately kept out of the game despite being complete in order to sell as DLC is objectively skeezy and stupid. Stuff like this, a collector's edition bonus that is being sold so people can get the bonus if they want is fine. If you don't want it, don't buy it.

    i've never had any problem with online pass/day 1 dlc type stuff

    preorder stuff can be kind of annoying but when all is said and done is rarely anything to get mad about

    i have a couple less guns coming to me in ME3 thanks to the origin and gamestop stuff

    kind of sucks

    but i think i'll live

    Well. I don't know. I mean the DLC squadmate was announced a while ago. Remember, it was originally listed on the CE edition before they took it off.

    I mean I know some stuff really isn't finished on time, but "eh..." I don't know in this situation. Maybe they shelved it to the last minute, maybe they didn't.

    Well, having watched most of the video, Halibut is not a knee jerk reaction kind of guy and he does raise some good points. ME3 is most certainly the most exploited* game in the series.

    But it is. You said yourself its free with the CE.

    It's not unusual for CEs of games to get exclusive content that never gets a wide release. At least everyone will get to see this if they choose to.

    If they had given it for free to everyone, it would have greatly diminished the value of the CE as it is one of the perks.

    Again, there is no foul here.

    This stuff runs on a schedule. Shadow Broker was also planned way in advance of its release. Remember the hidden audio files found in vanilla ME2 that hinted at it? But it was not anywhere close to ready for January and they had other DLC to finish first. ME3's Shadow Broker-like DLC is also planned and is probably being worked on right now.

  • DragkoniasDragkonias Registered User regular
    Yeah. But like I'm saying they could have just did what they did with ME3 and DA2 and gave it "free" to people who bought new and people who bought used had to buy it straight out.

    So yeah, while I'm not exactly torn up about it. I see why some have a problem with it.

    In this case, though, it's an entire squadmate. And not just any squadmate,

    I feel like either this is important enough to the story that it should be on the disk, or it's so insignificant that it shouldn't even be in the game at all, and in either case, making it Day 1 DLC is a bad move.

    Its not going to be a major part of the game though if Shale, Zaeed and Sebastian are anything to go by. None of them did much beyond adding a little more flavor and interest to the world, and their personal missions were all fairly bland and sup-par considering others that were in the base game. None of them were breakout characters either like Mordin was for ME2. Like, I would be pissed if I didn't get Mordin but I was fairly indifferent about Zaeed. Same with Varric and Sebastian, or most people and Shale.

    Hell, it'll probably be subpar mechanically based on those three in comparison to the rest of your squad. For some reason the DLC characters have a tendency to suck in actual combat.

    Yeah, and Halibut was talking about how he'd have no problem with ME3 mirroring Shale or Zaeed in regards to the new DLC character. His point was this was developed content, pre launch, with a pretty damn important story character that you have to pay extra to get. I understand why he's upset, I really do.

    There's a middle ground between crucial to the story and insignificant. None of the squadmates are really crucial to the story, but they make solid contributions. The plot isn't going to fall apart without the Day 1 squadmate, he's just going to add more flavor to it.

    She wasn't day 1 DLC, Zaeed was.

    He kinda sucked. I stand by my assertion that Day 1ers tend to be relatively uninteresting (which is usually why they were cut in the first place) and also suck in combat.

    This. Also, it's an incentive to buy the game New, and as it's been discussed before: Devs and Publishers don't make money off of Used games.
    That would be true if the Day 1 DLC came with any new copy. It only comes in the CE / DDE. The Cerberus News Network thing from ME2 was an anti-used sales device, like I imagine MP to be in ME3.

    So what, we miss out on a "Normandy Crash Site" type of deal? Whatever. DLC isn't the most important factor in the world, and people will still buy the DLC if they don't get it with the CE/DDE copy anyway. Bottom line: WHO FUCKING CARES?

    ... Apart from a bunch of incompetents from youtube who are trying to "bring down the corrupt system!"

    Funny, I used to be like that once, but then I grew the fuck up.

    Did this guy kill your dog or something?

    I mean, it's cool to think the guy's an idiot. But this looks more like hatred.
