Cutter does have a point though. DLC is usually made regardless of backing. With KS its more of a leap of faith, backing is required before content is produced.(or not) Even if it turns out to be shitty content at least you can brag to your grandkids how you helped make that piece of shit. Of if its never released you can brag to your grandkids how you once beat up a person for not making a video game...

You don't think there's anything wrong with handing over money for stuff sight unseen?

These kickstarter things seem pretty popular around here.

While I think it is an awesome vehicle, same rules apply: "Buyer Beware."

So you really believe the DLC would never have been made had it not been funded by season pass? Or can you truly not see the difference?
I'm not talking about whether it would have been made or not, I meant paying upfront without knowing how the content would be. Not that there's anything wrong with that.. Tiny

No, you think, guys? You think that paying upfront for content when you have NO IDEA what it's going to be wasn't such a good idea? I'm truly shocked. SHOCKED, I SAY!
Like you have been doing on Kickstarter?

I don't regret buying the season pass at all. I enjoy the game and will probably spend more money on a cheap lunch today than I did for this DLC pack. That's not to say it's a good idea for everyone, but even if I did put any stock in reviewers anymore I'd still rather play it myself.

Wow, I didn't know you were so rich you drop over $30 a day just on lunch. Must be nice. Too bad most everyone else isn't in that boat.

I think he's talking the cost per DLC, not the cost of the entire season pass (which is $30), making the cost per DLC pack about 5 bucks.

Seeing as I got the game for near half off on GMG, I'm feeling the same way; while the gameplay is not as deep as Skyrim, I've wasted more money on poor $5 lunch decisions.

So it's basically a big arena with a few sidequests?

I guess after everyone complained about how shitty Moxxii's underdome was, Gearbox thought: "You know what? We should do it AGAIN!"

Edit: It's fun to start seeing people go "You know, maybe this season pass really wasn't such a good deal after all!"
