Op Ed

GameTopius - Did Consoles Ruin DLC?
For some reason, one of the most disdained new features of this console generation has been downloadable content. We don't like paying a few dollars for horse armor updates or some new cars and being nickled and dimed for costumes that are already on the game disc. We look at patches as little more than an excuse for developers to ship a half-finished game and have us beta test it.

It shouldn't have been this way.

the best example of ideal DLC was total annihilation, a new unit a week. It did not cost ANY microsoft points, playstation dollars or whateverthehell You want to call it.
Something substantial is fine for a few bucks, and I'm thinking expansion pack substantial, personally I like having the CD/DVD around, and am finding the disappearing discs distressing, but if I'm forced to buy a damn microsoft point card to get the other fallout packs, I will.

The bottom line, is paid DLC should be balanced with free DLC like we used to have, fallout expansion? sure, horse armour? not really.
