Dead Rising 2 Costume DLC

If you were unable to preorder Dead Rising 2 and get the sweet packs, you're in
luck, Capcom has announced that the costumes will be DLC for 1.99 each. (or
160 Microsoft Points)

Each of the four packs have different effects:
Psychopath Pack (Oct. 12) — Bonus when using iconic horror movie weapons
(chainsaws, cleavers, axes)

Soldier of Fortune Pack (Oct. 19) — Doubles ammo, increases shooting and
headshot accuracy; special bullet spray attack when using automatics.

Sports Pack (Oct. 26) — Golf balls, basketballs, etc. bounce more before
stopping. Chuck will also “earn more from gambling, gain more health while eating
and drinking and not get sick from drinking too much.” So, essentially, he’s your
fun uncle.

Ninja Pack (Nov. 2) — Stealth mode requires zombies be closer to detect
presence. Throwing items do more damage and are tossed faster; bonuses with
sword weapon.

Re: Dead Rising 2 Costume DLC

So if you preorder it's free but if you wait you have to pay? Honestly that annoys the hell out of me. They're literally removing content and hanging it over peoples heads. I think it's shameless money grabbing. Anything that is available for preorder is stuff that should be included with full retail purchase. Waiting a while and giving it free is ok but to charge is just wrong.

Re: Dead Rising 2 Costume DLC

Actually, the idea was if you preordered it at certain locations, you'd get certain packs, such as
Gamestop for the Ninja Pack and Best Buy for the Sportfan pack.

Now the DLC is to give everyone a piece of the preorder content.
But that doesn't justify anything, it's way too expensive for costumes.
(Which I'm going to buy anyway...)

Re: Dead Rising 2 Costume DLC

Oh I know what the idea is behind this. It's all about money at the expense of the gamers. There's no other explanation.

A good example of what to do, Dragon Age had DLC that came with purchase. Used purchasers had to buy the DLC. I think that's fine, still annoying but fine. They also sweetened it by giving you free armor for ME2 with the retail purchase. I guess the difference is one company cares about their reputation(Bioware) and the other just wants to cash in as much as possible while the hype is still hot.

Re: Dead Rising 2 Costume DLC

$1.99 for a minor cosmetic change to the game?
Isn't this already on the disk anyway?
Damn DLC is just some dumbass money grabbing scheme.

Of course I'd expect dumbass money grabbing from Capcom:
With their six versions of SFII that hardly vary from one another
Three slightly different versions of SFIII
Two slightly different versions of SFIV
Over 9,000 collections including all the different versions of SFII.

The comments aren't directed at you, just at things you happen to like, I try not to be rude about it, but you do have to admit, Capcom has done quite a bit of money grabbing, what with all those SFIIs out there.

Isn't Bioware another notorious producer of DLC? It's all crap because if you pay $50-$60 for a game you should get the entire game. Whether it be clothes, missions, vehicles, armor, a lounge, etc...

DLC means either the game wasn't finished when they sent it to retail or they're intentionally holding content back.

Re: Dead Rising 2 Costume DLC

Generally speaking, they are just holding content back to get more money. This is why my opinion on DLC is wholly negative.

Not always. Bioware has some minor things that could've probably shipped but they also release actual content expansions months later. I believe the one for Dragon Age was actually really big but I haven't tried it yet. The problem is when they release obvious stuff like with Dead Rising or when they released Darth Vader as a DLC but he was already on the SC4 disc. I guess the same happened for the PS3 players and Yoda though. It's all pretty shameful really but some good comes out of it.
