RE: Mass Effect 3 Countdown.
Quote: Paying for cosmetic DLC is fine as it doesn't affect the gameplay, buying DLC where the game gets so unbalanced and therefore way too easy is something that already doesn't sit right with me, but this is just moneygrabbing for the sake of moneygrabbing.

This is a general statement about the status of DLC's at the moment, I am not saying this DLC is that. I did not say this DLC will alter the balance of the game but there are definitely DLC's out there that do. Even worse, you buy DLC for one game and it creates a bonus in another game. However, this is a trend, one that EA has tried before in the past and had to recant, and that you fall for this and are willing to pay more for less content doesn't mean others should follow suit.

It is important to distinguish between From Ashes and the business model represented by Mass Effect 2's early DLC. Cerberus Network content like extra party member Zaeed Massani was freely available to those who had purchased the game new, smartly helping to protect against second-hand sales losses. On the other hand, From Ashes will not be provided to all paying customers; accessing this day-1 content will require separate purchase for $10 or acquisition of the Collector's or Digital Deluxe Edition. The Protheon companion was present in the leaked script back in November, which suggests that it was always planned as part of the main game.

Quote:The people who will be supposedly 'boycotting' this are fools. If they want to miss out on one of the greatest gaming experiences going then they can be my guest, but frankly the reasons they are doing so are stupid. I'd gladly pay twice as much for this game than half the other crap on the gaming market today regardless.

That basically means thet you will allow companies like Bioware and specially EA to screw you over by selling you a glorified demo of the game and bleeding you dry for unlockable content. If that is the way you want to go that is fine by me, but I am not one of those people.
