    "You get what was advertised" is a bit dubious. There are always some parts of the games left a surprise, and I'd bet most people expect at least a little more than what they are literally told as a result. And what counts as advertising? The packaging? Media adverts? Official sites/blogs/twitters/etc.? Interviews?
    Hell, this Day 1 DLC came out of nowhere. Not advertised at all until the day of.

    In general, I don't let others speak for me, but my thoughts on Day 1 DLC is perfectly summed up with this video here. It focuses on Mass Effect 3 but I feel it applies to FoC as well.

    Day 1 DLC can either be good or bad...and it really depends on the context and what is being released. However, Fall of Cybertron's Day 1 DLC reeks of a pure money grab. The download was 10kb, which means it was just an unlock code to unlock the stuff that's already on the disk.

    I mean...I bit 'cuz I wanted the Perceptor parts...but fuck, these kind of money grabs are just disgusting.

    I fucking hate this.

    Why High Moon? Why did you go all Capcom on our asses? DLC for WFC was at least reasonable. But this? No way in fucking hell.

    Please do.

    But yeah I have a feeling that all the dlc, at least character wise, is arlready done and on the disc like in WFC. :/

    I think my stance on this issue pretty clear by now, but I do have to say that, in their defense, those might be incomplete or placeholder files. If the DLC packs for those skins is like the one for Havoc is where you only download a tiny unlock file, then you'll have proof and that will just be even more disgusting.

    Well some people have reported Grimlocks running around in multiplayer and his multiplayer config file is right there in the image, so at least the Dinobots are all there. We'll have to wait for the actual date itself though to know for sure on the others, but the likely case is that it is.

    Plus Hound's file is similar in size to everyone else's models, so I imagine that something significant is there.

    Well no fucking shit they are already on the disk

    IMO I know i'm getting overcharged but I don't really care, I'm not going to go poor from buying $10 DLCs. yes they are ripping us off. Bitching to eachother about it isn't going to change their minds one bit, the games already been made. People didn't go crazy over this stuff with WFC. Yes, WFC was a better deal for the money. THERE WAS STILL ON DISK DLC. People who complained, look where that got them. no where.

    And not complaining will anyone anywhere right? I'm sorry I don't take kindly to all the bullshit happening in one of my favorite hobbies. Hell even with the WFC locked characters you got a few maps to go with it, and yes I still very much complained to high hell about that. One person is all it takes to get the ball rolling, and causing PR shitstorms is one of the only ways to get publishers to listen. You know why?


    Because people go "LOL ITS A RIPPOFF GRR I HATE THEM WHO CARES NOT GONNA STOP THEM HERES MY MONEY ANYWAY" and toss money at them.


    So thanks for continuing to be part of the problem.

    Something exists there. If I could figure out model extracting I would want to see what exactly this is. Probably one for robot mode Jazz interacts with, but vehicle mode seems suspicious.

    Anyone noticed that there's no Barricade either...? Wasn't he supposed to be "Roadside"?

    If you knew what R-Tyme's mission statement was you'd want very much for us to succeed based on your complaints here. But that's another conversation. This one I'm done with.
