Jesus, Marvel! Think you have enough costume packs for download? How about you get on making real super hero/villain outfits in the Avatar Marketplace instead of T-shirts and accessories. I want to BE Captain America, not were a T-shirt of his costume.

How on earth did paying so much to unlock in-game items early become such a bloody cash cow? I just can't believe that many people are willing to pay for stuff you unlock by playing the game shock

Season Pass will give you the additional DLC when it's released. There is no DLC released yet (story related that is). When the first comes out, that's when you'll download something rather large.... that is... if it's not locked on the disc.. What you downloaded today was just something that says "You have the season pass!".

Damn, that is a lot of time saver packs. Has laziness gotten that bad these days that three separate games in one week are releasing them? If you're paying to unlock content that you can unlock by actually playing the game, you're doing it wrong.
Posted on 31 October 12 at 08:10
This list of DLC just broke the games industry.

1200 points for time saving unlocks???

1500 points for a costume pack?
