Game isn't even out yet and we already have DLC annoucements.

 

I sure hope that rumor is true and this hits GamePass/

Well, the game's coming out a month from tomorrow. I doubt there's just going to chill and have everyone go home on vacation. And is hardly the first time a (fighting) game announces DLC before lunch.

 

I'm giving MK11 a pass because I'm pretty sure development on the main game is done or about to. But if we were 3, 4, 5 or 6 months from release, I wouldn't hesitate to call out NRS.

Yeah, I mean, it already has a season pass with it so obviously new fighters were going to happen.

 

I love that they brought Cary-Hiroyuki in for this. This is probably the best use of their new likeness stuff.

Did anyone else get a message from MS thanking them for being DMC fan and giving a code for the Monkey Business DLC for Devil May Cry 5?

Or just wait.  I'm sure it'll be like MK9 & 10 and the two Injustice game, where there will be a "komplete" edition with all the DLC down the road.

When the game was "free" on psn I thoroughly enjoyed that game and got the plat.Sadly I don have the SP for it on ps4 so I can't comment but if you enjoyed the base game then go for the dlc.

Any????? Step back 3? So people didn’t even play real games? It was three pointer after 3 pointer, unless there was a steal

yup. There was also a glitch if you paused the game when your guy was taking the ball out of bounds after a made basket that all the player would just stand around. So if someone was losing all they to do was pause and they could wait around for hours until you had to quit and get the lose. Good times.

I know announcing a dlc character before the game releases is kinda a bad look, but how else are they gonna get people to buy in to the character pass? Gotta advertise somehow of what's to come rather than consumers and a blind faith the pass will be good. At least the dlc isn't baked onto the disc like another dev does with their fighters(Capcom, wasn't it?)

Totally digging that Noob trailer. And the og movie actor's likeness and voice for MK11??? Awesome

Apparently there is an internal memo from GameStop stating Sony is pulling digital retail games from all retailers starting April 1, and PSN will be the only place digital games are sold afterward.

That would include retailers like Amazon, digital preorders via b2g1 sales, etc. I assume most digital sales are directly from PSN, XBL, etc, but it seems odd to limit the ways people can purchase content.

It's still shitty. If they're showing a character this early it is possible it's going to be ready for launch. I get that a game goes Gold early for it to have time to be printed to discs, but it just feels bad. I don't think companies need to be that desperate to sell a season pass. We're already spending $60 or more if we buy a game on day one.

 

Looking at two other examples, I think Soul Calibur did it badly. Everything dataminers have found about it point to Tira being base roster character that was ripped out to have a "bonus" for buying the Season Pass. Compare that to Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Basically if you played the game in the first three months after launch you got their first DLC for free. Their bonus was a just a costume. I'd be a lot happier if more games followed that example, especially when they already have a pre-order character like MK11 does.

 

To be fair to MK11, they didn't say Shang Tsung will be available on day one, but he's already modeled and voice so there is a good chance he will be. I think I'd feel a lot better about it if the teaser was along the lines of Negan's announcement for Tekken 7, which was a photo from the show with some voice acting. It still worked for building the hype(?) for the character and let us knew who was coming, but it was easy to see he wasn't ready to go. I guess my example there isn't the best comparison since Shang Tsung is an NPC in base MK11.

 

The Capcom thing you're referring to was ridiculously brazen, on Street Fighter x Tekken they held back 12 characters that were on disc to give the Vita version that was releasing later the advantage of having them first. Not to mention the inexplicably PS3 exclusive Pac-Man and Mega Man were on disc on the the 360 version. That whole thing was a clusterfuck that hasn't been matched, and seemed like it was the result of a Sony marketing deal. Capcom entirely moved away from that on-disc model after a few games got shit on for it.

 

Edit: one last thing, I think NetherRealm could have pushed up this announcement due to the full roster leak kind of taking the wind out of their sales, but WB likes to announce DLC early, and Injustice 2 did the same thing.

I guess it's time to finally play the first game, I hear the story itself is top-tier even if the game is flawed. I would say I'd like a port of 1 to consoles but looking at the reviews it's heavily suggested to play with a fan made mod that fixes a lot of issues and adds cut content.
 
 
Honestly I would like to see a new Duke. They've owned the rights for 9 years now and all we've gotten since Forever is a port of Duke 3D with some new levels and a paid DLC to an extremely overpriced port of Bulletstorm. I don't know if Gearbox could still make a good straight-forward FPS, but it's not like it would have the extreme baggage that Forever brought with it from 3D Realms. It's insane to me that Shadow Warrior is two games deep in a successful reboot before anything substantial could be done with Duke. At least Ion Maiden looks good I guess.


I loved Vampire The Masquerade. Yes the game was sort of broken but the story was great. If I remember right, there were a lot of fan made patches that helped fix the games problems. You should definitely play it.

Character passes are just a part of fighting games now.  Vote with your wallet by buying it or not.  At least with a NRS/WB game you know there will be a cheap complete edition once all the content is out (not to mention that they actually launch a product with tons of content/modes and a story with AAA production values).

There are times when I feel like I'm the only one who just waits for the "complete" edition on fighting games.  They can announce every character in the history of the franchise (and another slew of crossover characters) and I could care less.

Of course, I also only play fighting games for couch co-op, so there's no burning desire to get them early anyway.

I just switched over completely due to their anti consumer behavior on the ps store and I don’t regret it. I really like how Microsoft is innovating and would rather be on it.

It seems I got the Monkey DLC for DMC5. I haven't played the full game yet, just one of the demos and the 360 version of the Trilogy lately. My only other thing was buying 4 as a gift for someone a couple weeks ago. I looked it up and apparently it was a pre-order bonus for Amazon Japan.

I think this really depends how invested in the game or genre you are. If you want to be competitive or even just play a game online with the best player experience (a large playerbase that isn't just the hardcore who stick around for years), you pretty much have to get the base game early, like most other multiplayer games that only get support for a year or two. I'm willing to wait for a sale or price drop on fighters I'm not as invested in. Soul Calibur is my favorite so I was in day one. I thought Injustice 2 just looked great with a ton of features so I also was in on day one for about a month, then was able to trade it in for about what I paid and re-bought the complete edition later. I probably would have bought Street Fighter V on day one but that exclusivity deal saved me from that mistake.

 

I get waiting to get everything for casual play, but even the casual group I know that likes fighters will get something at launch because of the hype, which they did for Dragonball.

This is true. Remember when they announced the first 3 season pass characters, and then silhouetted the other 6 characters to make it "impossible" to know who was coming? I mean, kudos to those that predicted Black Manta.

I feel like they could do something similar with MK11, but they've had such a more unpredictable DLC list, it might be difficult.

Count me in as well. I'd rather just wait for the complete collection to come out. There are other games in the backlog that'll keep me busy.

98% of the time, I'm the one to wait for the complete/goty edition of games which have all the dlc. But for Mortal Kombat, that is a true day one purchase for me. Doesn't matter if Shao Kahn is locked behind a pre - order bonus, thats fine by me. I don't mind forking down money for a game I KNOW will have a great single player(I swear, NetherRealm makes the best looking games this gen), a robust Krypt to keep me playing to unlock extras like art, characters, stages, skins, etc, multiple daily, weekly and monthly online events, a massive character customization section(which doesn't have ability options tied to it), insane gore with brutal beatdowns & fatalities that are ever creative......so yeah. I could keep going on, but to me its worth $60 launch day.

Now Injustice 2? I knew it'd be great but waited to snatch up the complete edition with all dlc when it was just over $10 disc on Black Friday. That's my choice. I get other's opinions and if they wanna close their wallet to wait for the komplete game a year down the road, no prob. But I will gladly pay day one to support these devs and Ed Boon who've kept this franchise I love, alive and well 25+ years and counting

DLC "on disc" still seems to be prevalent on the One. Capcom may be (have been?) the worst offender, but it seems many companies still do it. On the 360, it was obvious what DLC was just a license key because they were all 56k in size IIRC. On the one, I have "downloaded" a lot of DLC from numerous games with identical file sizes,10.09mb or something like that, suggesting to me that I only downloaded the license to content already baked into the base game from the start. But man, fighters are the worst of them all. Just one reason I avoid them in general, other than I suck ass at any game that depends on me being able to combo attacks. The latter may be the main reason. :-

it’s hard to raise the price of games without pissing people off. But if you really like the game, it would make sense to get DLC. Hmm makes me wonder if the new system is 60 dollars is for most of game but to see full game the new bar is more money. Which is a change from the older way of DLC is extra- to DLC makes it complete. Seems like that when it’s the full roster of fighters

I think that's usually not because it's on disc, mostly for pre-order stuff, but for a lot of games everyone downloads the same data for total compatibility. This gets rid of shit like the million compatibility packs that Dead or Alive 5 hard.
