The DLC Cup Runneth Over.

I was glancing thru some games today and looked at Killing Floor. I didn't realize but that game has *19* DLC's now.

But that pales by comparison to Borderlands 2, one of the true DLC Beasts on Steam. BL2 has topped off at a cool *46* DLC's. Anybody know of a game with more DLC's than BL2?

Mama Mia. Did you see this?

Add All DLC To Cart: $1,725.14

Good grief.

Single Player. Now this I'd like to see in MMO.

For that money you could build a seriously significant model layout...

Notice that the cost of the "Add All To Cart" is while those DLC's are all 40% off. XD

I think Borderlands 2 has handled their DLCs very well.

Yes, they have a lot of them. But none contain essential game components. They just add stuff to the already cohesive game.

New areas. New heads. Raising level caps.

That is actually how DLCs SHOULD be.

Compare it to, for instance, RTW2.

You spend $60 for the game, but you can only choose a couple of factions. Want to play as the Celts? That'll be $7.99. Want to play as the Greeks and you didn't preorder? $7.99.

Or compare it to how Paradox games work now.

You buy CK2. Oh, look, at the big map. But you can't do anything except play as a Western European unless you spend extra money. Everyone looks the same, unless you spend extra money. Want religion to work properly? Spend extra money.

RTW2 and Paradox games essentially function as a cell phone game. Here's a game. And here's the dozens of paywalls.

Borderlands does it right. None of the DLCs are bits of the actual game which they decided to charge you extra for.

Now, Rail Simulator...

The work they do on those expansions is incredible. You aren't intended to buy them all. Rather, you get just the sets you want. They're like when you bought third party airport packs for MS Flight Sim. Buy your locality, or a place you've always wanted to take a train through.

YOU aren't intended to buy them. It's for train fans.

I have the game, actually. A previous version was cheap in a sale and hey why not. It's pretty cool and you can spend lot of time with just the base game.

Borderlands 2:

locked characters, and skins/heads isn't cut content?, and they even dare to charge for cosmetic stuff, which should be free

the only ''good'' DLC's for borderlands 2, are the ones that adds story, and that's 10ish out of 46 total DLC's, the rest is cut content, and should be free imo

Rome 2/Paradox:

all the DLC's except 2, actually add quite alot of content, yes, some of them are reskins, with a new name, but still, they add flavour and a hell of alot more replayability

the blood & gore + Beasts of war DLC's should have been free/in the game from the start

oh and never played any of those deep Paradox games, but looking at the DLC's for them, 99 % of it is cosmetic...

Borderlands cosmetic stuff isn't relevant to the game. You can play everything in the game, and finish it, without any DLCs. Extra area DLCs aren't part of the story of the game.

You pay only for cosmetic **** that 99% of people don't give a **** about.

For Rome 2, you can't play the whole game without opening your wallet again and again. The point of the TW games isn't to be forced to play a Roman faction. It's to play who you want. Which you have to pay extra for. It's an incomplete game forcing you to pay for what is missing. Want to be Greek? Pay extra. Hell, I didn't play as a Roman on the original RTW until the EB mod was released. That's how deep that game was out of the box.

For Paradox games, you can't play the whole game without opening your wallet again and again. You can't play as a Republic without paying ten bucks. Can't be a pagan without paying ten bucks. Can't be Muslim without paying ten bucks. Can't actually have a functioning Christian religion without paying ten bucks. It's a game in beta phase, with expensive DLCs to make it playable.
