DLC Sucks balls!!!
Over the last couple years an ugly monster called DLC and in game purchases have become a bigger and bigger issue among gamers.what started off as spending a few bucks on weapon camos and frivolous cosmetic upgrades has turned into pure and utter evil capitalist BULLSHIT by forcing gamers to fork over insane amounts of cash just to experience the full content of the game a lot of the times forcing them to purchase an unproven game months before release just to get their hands on "pre order bonuses" it sucks. For example i am a die hard fighting game fan so when MKX was announced i was too stoked for words every bit of gameplay and fatality trailers shown i drooled over and the rumors going around on who the guest characters were kept the hype alive so when i finally got my grubby paws on that game i was lost in a world of Kombat that i couldn't get enough of that is until the dreaded Kombat pack. After a week of playing MK relentlessly the itch for more skins and characters consumed me and i contemplated the idea of forking over the 30$ for the kombat pack so i could get Jason on release and of course motherfuckin predator!! So i bought it under the impression i just locked in every skin and character upon release....i was wrong, The first thing i noticed was no goro even though i spent 95$ in total at this point since i didn't pre order i still have to purchase goro for 5 bucks which is crazy and to top it all of there are skin packs that aren't included in Kombat pack so you still have to purchase MORE to get all the content i would have to spend 105$ as of now to get all MKX has offer that is just fucking nuts. I love the game i play it every day and the DLC issue aside its a great value base game wise but the DLC choices by either Netherrealm or WB games leaves a bad taste in my mouth and it makes the future of gaming look very grim for the average income gamer. On the reverse side of that coin are games like The Witcher 3 which offers hundreds and hundreds of hours of content in just the base game alone requiring no purchases to enjoy the game in its entirety as well as an expansion pass that only adds to your adventures months down the road and is in no way vital to your playthrough which is the way it should be i have no problem with offering gamers DLC to add to there games and fun but i do have a problem with constantly being harassed about season passes and pre order bonuses shits wack and needs to stop but i have sinking suspicion it aint goin nowhere anytime soon LAAAAAAAAAAAAAME
