    As most of you may know. High Moon has released the Dinobot DLC pack today.

    So it appears that many of you aren't to happy with what's being offered based on the price.

    "4 Dinobots for $10"

    No extra maps.
    No new Escalation updates.
    No broad ability to change the Dinobot color schemes.

    Just 4 new characters... (3 if you've already got Swoop)

    So lets put it to a vote.
    (Sorry for the spelling errors in the poll guys, I'm fully aware so please don't give me too much hell. I'll learn LOL!)

    It'd be interesting if there was a poll since one wasn't done already. Otherwise it's not needed.

    This needs no more debate whatsoever and will horribly fail and spiral into heated arguing about whether it's fair or not, and Disk-Locked-Content being okay or not.

    I doubt anyone will vote that they don't want to buy FOC because of a supposedly unfairly priced DLC.

    I think this discussion could be very productive.

    We could just use the poll to do the talking. And once its done, I'll email the results to HM's dev department since they claim that they're always looking for feedback.

    I’m torn because I’d really like to get all the DLC. I think having more parts for customization is a good thing because then I can make my character more like I want it. I originally didn’t think I would care much but after messing around with the character creator and getting all my classes looking awesome it makes me want more. I just don’t think I can get past the price tag at the moment. For a total of $30 (half the price of the full game!) I would expect the value of half a game. I’m getting models (some of which I may end up not ever using!) for a total of 12 characters (already have Swoop, and the GI pack). That's $2.50 per character. What do those characters add to the game? Not a lot really, in my opinion. It’s mainly cosmetic. Will I miss out by not getting the DLC? Yeah, but only a little. I won't be able to look like that Space T-rex guy that I just blasted with my non-dino Transformer. It’s cool, but is it $30 worth of cool? I’m inclined to say not even close. $15? That’s more like it!

    Here’s hoping for a half price sale before the online community dies! :) 

    Some maps, escalation levels, or campaign missions would surely add to the value of those packs. The WFC DLC was a better value.

    I'd prefer that, seeing how the DLC is live thread turned out. :p

    Why not?

    This could tip the scale with people who are on the fence about buying this game.

    On any payday that 60 bucks could go to a million other things....so the question they might be asking is why pay $70 with underwhelming DLC?

    Voted.... but i'm not getting into a discussion about it, no-one is holding a gun to people's heads making them spend money on these packs, its upto the individual.

    Personally I don't love what I'm getting for the price but I still bought it and don't regret it.

    It's simple really. If I like the dlc, which I do, I buy it. If you really like something, then it's worth the money. There's obviously an upper limit though. >_>

    Some people are born to barter. It's not that we all hate the game, I love the campaign. Its just that some of us expect more bag for our buck DLC wise!

    High Moon can only play the take it or leave it role for so long.

    Come late November when all the other big games come out, this game will barely be much of memory if HM doesn't get it together.

    Plus if our combined input gets HM to budge on content and price that could benefit you in the future as well.

    *See response above.*

    Im a sucker for this type of thing. The only thing I hate is the fact we dont have any dinobot colours, which sucks.

    yup... i feel that i got all my money's worth with WFC as i enjoyed the game thoroughly and was really addicted to it... FOC is like, whatever.... i remember with WFC i got hooked priming my characters. this time, i don't even bother maxing them all out and my infiltrator is still at level 6.. there's simply no point.

    Yes we do. All those silver/color choices that were added are dinobot colors.

    There's no broad scope at coloring them. What if I wanted to make a Decepticon with Overkill's color scheme?

    Just like the Universe 2.0 figure.

    Those first 2 FoC DLCs are wrong. So much wrong.
    I bought the first one. But I very regret later.
    10 dollars for already on disc content? Only 4 or 5 skins/models? Just playing exactly same? No new abilities? Not really new besides look? No new maps? No new games modes? Nothing....
    No... I will pass this second DLC. And this kind of politics isnt the way to make High Moon bigger. It is wrong. Using Transformers fanbase to make very stupid profit on content we already pay for.
    Very sad. They surpassed Capcom on DLC politics.
