    Default The most rubbish DLC on Xbox Live

    This thread is going to result in an argument about DLC. But, here it is anyway

    The most rubbish DLC on Xbox Live

    DLC: Horse Armor
    For: Oblivion
    Price: 200 MS Points

    DLC: LV. Up & 300,000 Gald
    For: Tales of Vesperia
    Price: 200 & 300 MS Points

    DLC: Time Is Money Pack
    For: Skate 2
    Price: 400 MS Points

    DLC: Weapons, Skins & Costumes
    For: Dead Space
    Price: 120 - 320 MS Points

    DLC: Darth Vader
    For: SoulCalibur IV
    Price: 400 MS Points

    DLC: Transformers Unlockables
    For: Tranformers: The Game
    Price: 500 MS Points

    DLC: The Rest of the game
    For: Beautiful Katamari
    Price: 200 MS Points apiece

    DLC: Extra Character Data
    For: Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad
    Price: 500 MS Points

    DLC: VR Levels
    For: Vampire Rain
    Price: Free
    My personally most hated DLC are ones like "Time is Money" in which you just pay to unlock crap already on the disc. Rumble Roses XX had this and it pisses me off to no end.

    Pretty much the reason why I didn't buy Beautiful Katamari was because I didn't feel like paying for the game and then paying again for the rest of the game. It's on the disc, but you have to pay to unlock it. Now that's fucked up.

    Can't knock any DLC that's free, though (such as with Vampire Rain). I don't care how lame it is, if it's free then there's no room to bitch.

    Street Fighter IV does the same thing. All of the costume packs are on the disc, most likely so you can use them online, but it's stupid not to just unlock them for everyone.

    What sucks is that I bought it and didn't realize this. I hate it. At least I bought it used for cheap, but still... being nickel and dimed fucking sucks.

    I agree. Stupid or not, who cares. No harm no foul.

    Too bad there is no such thing as refund in DLC. These sort of mods are what make PC games popular in the first place. Now developer trying to cash in on something that can be free.

    Hmm. Didnt know you could be Darth Vader now in the 360 version of Soul Caliber o_O

    But I'm not gonna lie, the costume packs are pretty lame in SFIV. Especially since all of them are stupid.

    I agree but for Soul Calibur 4 instead of SF4, although I did purchase the SC4 armor packs hoping there would be more sets in them...the Vader was sort of worth it, but I would have rather seen the SC3 missing stances like Tambourine, Greave Edge, etc. or like the Titan statue mode...they really dropped the ball on the content with 4.

    All of the extra packs for Soltrio Solitaire. hell, the entire game is an abomination in terms of cash-in-ability.

    Also have to agree with the Oblivion horse armor though considering I recently lost my horse after 85 hours of gameplay to a two ogre ambush it might have prevented me rather a lot of pissed-off-ness.

    Any DLC that allows you to bypass playing the game to 'get the good shit' is retarded in my book.
    RIP bargora, you will be greatly missed.That is how we do things on Giedion Prime.

    Onechanbara pack is nice if you are a fan of the game, as it gives you three more characters to play as and new costumes for the existing ones. It's also now the cost of a points card for the pack with everything, whereas if I am reading the Japanese page properly, it's 1900 points over there. Which makes me wonder if their cards are different amounts, or if they just really wanted to make you buy two cards to get the stuff.

    I'm amazed how expensive the Onechanbara stuff is. When they say extra character data, they just mean extra characters right? A full points card seems way too expensive.

    Katamari is the one of the worst.

    Ace Combat 6 is even worse. Different paints for the jets. I believe its over 200 bucks for all the different kinds of paints/planes that you can get.

    If you get everything, it's one new costume each for Aya, Saki, and Annna, and then also you get Reiko, Misery, and Himiko as playable characters. There is also another costume for Aya that's free. Here's the japanese page for the DLC: http://www.d3p.co.jp/one/puru/puru_index.html

    The "unlock all vehicles now" purchase for Burnout Paradise is BS and actually hurts the game. Half the fun of the game is wiping out enemy vehicles to put them into your collection. Getting rid of that element makes the game kind of dull after a while.
    Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes not divine, but demonic.

    First thing I thought of was Skate 2 and you put that in. There are some that are true cash ins that are good (rock band), but the stuff like unlocking everything in skate 2 is dumb.

    if you suck that bad, you won't get through most of the challenges in the game anyway, since they upped the difficulty of the game anyway

    DOAX2 and its "if you can't unlock what you want, just buy it" DLC. Not only is it an absurd idea, but it's broken down per character and would come out do many thousands upon thousands of points if purchased in its entirety. That should be on any such list of rubbish.
