I used to try to keep as many games as possible installed for that reason but this is a better option to get notified when there are updates.
I don't know, I think it's not so bad. It's more or less like rewarding existing customers when some these days seem to be doing the opposite and screwing you out of deals on the DLC unless you buy it with the base or in a (Amazon) bundle.
OTOH there is the whole GFWL issue looming and whether the DLC is really worth it in the first place, which brings me to...
Is all the Resident Evil DLC for all the games really just multiplayer only or weapons? If so then I guess I'll pass. I was feeling like I needed a TL;DR For Dummies guide to tell me what DLC is what.
That's the problem I have with Steam and games that have a lot of DLC. I know Enhanced Steam has the (crowd sourced) categories but even then you have to go to each and every page which is tedious since they don't show up in list view.
I wish Zenimax (for Bethesda & Arkane) would do an ALL DLC Sale like this - you know, for DLC on Skyrim & Dishonored.
Also if the DLC had said 75% off Bethesda DLC Sale, so many people would be jumping for joy right now so I don't even wanna hear it =P
Bethesda, BioWare, and EA needs to take notes on how to do discount DLC and packs like this Capcom DLC sale.
BTW - why the hell isn't DLC for RE: Operation Raccoon City on sale?
