Retail & GFWL DLC Roundup: May 1st, 2012

Retail & GFWL DLC Roundup: May 1st, 2012

The Police look for a weapons stash on Mt. Eddie

Written by punkyliar on 01 May 12 at 21:23

This week sees DLC releases for 14 Xbox 360 retail games and I cover the DLC for one GFWL game that was released too late to make last week's roundup. None of the games add extra achievements to their list and four games currently have region exclusive DLC. I apologise for what is possibly a completely mangled translation of the Japanese text for Japanese-exclusive games, but as the site doesn’t recognise Japanese characters, this is the best that I can do. Here is this week’s list:

In addition a new playable class is also unlocked, the ‘Ninja’ is offered for both teams; this unique playable character type is perfect for surprise attacks and adapting combat style to the situation. Finally this unique pre-order pack also contains two exclusive multiplayer weapon types the ‘Hoga Type 69’ Sniper Rifle for long range annihilation of enemies and the ‘Yamato-0’ Handgun, for more up close and personal work.Eschatos (Japan only - released on April 25th)

If only the Mt Eddie in SSX was the Eddie character from Iron Maiden's albums. Then I'd be highly interested in the sheer oddity of it all.

Some Publishers are going crazy right now with thier
"One-Weapon-DLCs" for a fortune! (if you would buy them all)

And whats that?: "Armored Core V Complete Parts Pack" – 2720 MSP, so is this some kind
of Extra-parts or just the parts that are already in it and you can unlock them all with that DLC?

Its looking over-priced to me, even if i like Armored Core Games!

Hahaha I know people on here get too defensive of achievements or claim they only want to play for fun and their favorite games aren't being played right. This IS TA so that will be factored into a lot of purchases by many members however some won't. It really depends on person or game or both.

For me it depends on the game. If I love the game all DLC is welcome. If I like it DLC with achievements only. If I hate it Deal of the week only or a really good boosting session with said DLC achievements haha
