Because this content must be seen by other players. It's in-game abilities and characters and such, not a new land to walk to. Is this stuff that difficult to read about before the feigned indignation comes in?
Rolleyes Or you know, they could do like Chaos Rising and make a patch that allows players without the extra content to play against people with the extra content.

This is no different than if Quake 5 was released and the Rocket Launcher was an "on-disc" DLC that had to be bought for $5.

I still sometimes randomly say to people "Oh...hello, Gordon.", or "Hey Dr. Freeman." Funmny thing is that more people than you'd believe pick up on it - at least in geek circles.
By Pick Up On It, do you mean they stand there mute and unresponsive?

The problem is, they're out of ideas. Prince of Persia did the platforming and puzzles better. Uncharted did the other stuff better. They have nothing left except the brand name.

The lighter is pointless, but the thumb looks artificial, with a robotic joint.

See http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2010/03/02/portal-theres-something-going-on/

Looks like hidden audio files that can be played from radios in game, as well as hidden images in sound files.

If that's all you do in ME2's combat sequences, try cranking up the difficulty. At one notch above normal, not only is nearly every battle a real challenge, but enemies will move up and flank, and they're a serious enough threat to force you to move. Even early on, I found myself tactically repositioning my squaddies around corners and such to cover my retreats and advances, just so I wouldn't get slaughtered. It really makes the game a lot better, when you're not nigh invincible and you've actually gotta consider how you play, rather than hiding in one spot or just unloading and counting on superior firepower.
Hahahaha. Oh, I almost thought you were serious. Even at Insanity, the only difference is that enemies tend to have 3 health bars- health/armor/shield, instead of just the basic health. No flanking done, everything is the same, but you take a ton more damage.

What's with your age check, Blue? It won't accept that I was born on 11 11 1900! You can't prove I'm not 109 years old!

Bloom Box - a truly unfortunate name. Steven Spielberg would like to have a word with you, Mr. Bloom.

At the very least, the latest patch has made it play far far smoother on Dual Core processors (as opposed to only smooth on Quad Cores).

Fixed Spitter bug where spit could emit from a location several inches from the head, causing the spit to unexpectedly strike nearby objects and fall

Finally!

They also announced they're doing free DLC like Mass Effect 2 for new copies of the game which was part of what convinced me to preorder. I'm glad they aren't going to try nickle and diming consumers like they did with BF: Heroes.

Did they? Aren't the preorder bonuses just some normal unlocks unlocked at the beginning?

The 3d games were much harder to control, and it really hurt the gameplay. Plus it was just gdamn ugly.
