    High Moons DLC is ridiculously priced! 4 skins for £8, that's a f*cking ripoff!

    I play Starhawk & this is coming out on Tuesday FREE!
    Starhawk

    All high moon does is charge you ridiculously high prices for 4 skins...!

    The game was produced by the same people who drove the Guitar Hero franchise into the fricken ground, and are currently producing Skylanders. This isn't surprising in the slightest. Don't buy the DLC.

    At least they had the courtesy to only make new skins. Last game, you didn't buy the DLC, you were kicked from any map you didn't have.

    I'm interested. When was the last time you played it?

    Heh. Don't look at High Moon. Look at Activision. Those assholes like to milk our wallets. And to be honest, I don't even care. It's all about money for them anyway. What's another 30 bucks?

    Too expensive? Don't buy it. Supply and demand.

    Yesterday.

    I feel that the maps are too big and that I can't seem to get a match with more than six people in it.

    Oh look another "I'm going to whine about the price of the DLC as if anybody gives a flying fuck" thread. Look, if you don't want it, fine, don't whine about it! I on the other hand will be enjoying my Dinobots and Insecticons.

    $2.50 per Dinobot isn't that much.

    At least these Dinobots I can play with for hours without worrying about wrecking them. Plus they don't take up any shelf space.

    Best comment ever.

    Only reason I didn't get the DLC is because I (GASP!) don't really care about playing as the Dinobots.
    I think the Destructor Pack kind of kills what makes the Dino forms special and unique... now I see half a million of them in EVERY match. (Swoop especially!)
    Insecticons I can understand with them being in swarms but masses of Dinobots...? That's lame.

    The Swoops would be a flock, the others a herd. Seeing animals other than insects group together is really not that weird.

    And really how can you not appreciate the hilarity associated with seeing herds of robot dinosaurs blowing each other up?

    Ebay:
    They may not have set the price, but they sure is heck gave the price the limited content. I refuse to accept the belief that HMS had no idea about the price point for DLC--the final price didn't come out of left field. I think eBay sales from two years ago screwed many folks over. What really sucks is that a customization video shown prior to launch showed characters being customized that aren't part of the actual game but a DLC pack. Who would have thought that one would have to fork up $10 more to play as Wheeljack--wasn't there also an escalation video showing Wheeljack as part of an Autobot team battling waves of Decepticons?

    Had this DLC included a map pack or actual story content, I wouldn't think the asking price was so bad.

    It would likely have been Activision who said, "Here's the budget for DLC". The budget is what dictated what we got. So yes, it is Activision who decided what we got.

    I would KILL for a match where EVERYBODY is a Grimlock.

    All those Space T-rexes. It would be the greatest thing ever.
