Is it just me or are more people a little pissed that so many games are getting GOTY re-launches with added content within 6 months to a year of release and thus fuckin' over those of us who bought early?


It's just you. Nobody is getting "f'ed over", the early adopters purchased at a higher price for the chance to play the game sooner. Purchase games at the price you feel is fair for the content available at the time of purchase. Games will always drop in price or release with more content included later. Most games are front loaded in sales, and once a game has been out for six months or a year, the publisher has to do something to get back into the minds of gamers. Companies are forced to drop the price or realease with more content if they still want to sell any copies.

Geez, I certainly hope there is one. I already 1000'ed the main game when it came out (rented it from GF). Would love to pick up the complete package at a good price.

Agreed.

Batman: AA was a good game, but truly overhyped. The amount of backtracking you had to do if you wanted to 100% everything(find all the hidden crap)was ridiculous, since you didn't get the tools to get into some of the areas those items were hidden in until VERY late in the game.

I hate backtracking in games, unless it serves a real purpose, like some sort of waypoint for a mission.

Disagreeing with this post x10. AA was fun to backtrack through and find all those riddles. My only complaint is how dead the place seems at the end of the game. I didn't really want to find anyone else, but it'd be nice to have staff in there cleaning up.

Maybe you should stay 1 gen behind or at the very least 3 years behind. That way you can always get games with a ton of content for 5-10 bucks.

Definitely. Maybe you have to be a fan of Batman, but I certainly enjoyed finding everything. I also agree that they should have done something to add a little life to the place at the end of the game.

That was an issue for me too, in that maybe you might find an occasional goon or two that you didn't fight in the initial runthrough, but those fights were few and far between after the end of the game.

Then again, if I didn't find the riddles/trophies/etc on the first run through I didn't feel compelled to go back through and find them after the game was done due to how dead the game world was. I'm not really someone who HAS to 100% a title. As long as I finish the game, it was fun and not glitchy, then I got my money's worth.

Actually I still find a ton of games for $5-10 that I've wanted to play, especially with the prices of games going down so fast nowadays, but it seems every damn game is getting a "GOTY" edition now which jacks the price back up there to MSRP or close.

At least when Sony dropped Little Big Planet to Greatest Hits, they dropped the GOTY to $30 too.

Guess I'll be waiting for this before I pick up Borderlands. My hard drive can't fit much more DLC.
