    Why is the price in USD and not Bioware points where to buy $9.99 worth of Bioware points you need to buy at least 6000 Bioware points at $80?

    2-3 hours of content for $10 seems pretty bad. I realise it's probably more "cinematic" than some other DLC, but it's pretty obvious that they want more money for less gameplay. Story sounds completely derp too, lol reapers with human emotions. Unless there's some sort of Awesome(TM) new feature, I'll be staying far away from this if I can.

    It's for the greater good, think of the children (BioWare's children).

    BioWare manages to make playing 2 hours of a game more expensive than watching a 2 hours movie...

    In before Michael Bay directing DLCs.

    Tell that to movie theatres.


    "BioWare manages to make playing 2 hours of a game more expensive than watching a 2 hours movie..."

    Unless you only go to theatre on days/times with specials (I never go to the theatre myself), you ar elucky to get into a 1.5 hour movie for only $10 nowadays. And, it's 2-3 hjours which means 1-5 hours depending whose playing.

    R00fles!

    At least the movie actors have better animations.

    ...Unless it's Kristen Stewart.

    Movies are lightyears ahead of bioshit "games". No need to occasionally press some stupid button to continue the animaton, it just plays by itself the whole time!! So you have both your hands free for popcorn. And writing is generally much better even if it's super shit movie.
    Looks like eaware isn't there with technology yet.

    Enter regional pricing. A 9.99 $ DLC costs 9.99€ here, whereas a movie ticket for a summer blockbuster can go for anywhere from 5-8 €, with 8 usually being bullshit gimmick movies also known as 3D. The new Batman movie, that opened on 27.07 here costs 6.50€ now for example. And that movie is almost 3 hours. With a client card you can go as low as 4 € for a new movie.

    Remember when Half Life was released back in the 90's, it was praised for having all storytelling occur in game play so as to never break the flow with cut scenes?

    Do we really need to have the same discussion about how overpriced DLC is every other week when another is released? How about just ignoring this crap?

    Had they not spent all that fucking worthless development/cost on Multi-player turning it into Mass Call Of Duty Effect, this shit would have already been in the game.

    Good riddance BioWare. :salute:

    hoping for :incline:, that is BTE amusement and schadenfreude
    that of course would depend, as it can get relatively expensive as well
