I will be picking this up regardless, but it sure would be nice if they could add some new achievements...

It's awesome to see Cassandra back but damn that was hype when Haohmaru was revealed.

I don't like this multi season pass trend. I think most people who bought the first season pass assumed they would be getting all new future content. This is not cool. It further supports my decision not to pick up this game until there is a final version that includes everything.

As for the guest character, why go with Haohmaru? I mean he's cool and all, but Samurai are already well represented by Mitsurugi. roll

If they want to add an SNK character, then Mai Shiranui would certainly "round out" the cast nicely. See what I did there? laugh

I agree, and really wish I had waited now as well. They rarely even put the season passes on sale, and they're massively overpriced in the first place - $30 for 5-6 characters and a bit of customization content (which is probably just items from those characters) is downright ludicrous. I won't be supporting anything else from Bandai Namco in the future until it's a cheap complete edition. Boo Bandai, BOOOOO!
If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

That $30 only got you 3 new characters by the way (4 with the addition of Cassandra).
As far as supporting Bandai Namco, I picked up DBZ Fighterz over the weekend and I am already considering a complete boycott of that company. The online servers are atrocious. I was unable to get matched up for a casual, ranked, or an arena match. Hell, I can't even spectate a match. Seriously considering asking for a refund.

HaHaHa Unbelievable i thought a season pass lasted from beginning to end of a game . Now theres a season pass 2 and 3 ,no doubt each season costing more .Do 3 characters equate to a season pass. Im becoming jaded as i grow older

What a bunch of crybabies. Oh you want a company to keep working on a game months, or even years after launch. You want more characters, more stages, more levels more more more more. But you want it for free? Get out of here. The developers can't eat and pay their bills on your gratitude.

You don't want paid DLC? DON'T BUY IT. This is not a difficult concept.

Soulcalibur is a weapon-based fighting game. How would Mai get an even remotely decent movelist based on her throwing fans? ("Fans" as in the objects, not her admirers! laugh)

Just getting back into games...I bought one of those Tekken 7 editions a while ago with the season pass and i figured that edition had all the season pass content the game had but come to find out its a 2nd season pass? Considering that i am almost done with all achievements for this game i could care less about a few extra characters at this point. Unless these multiple season passes come with achievements I'm not biting. The landscape is definitely changing. I can understand the companies perspective on this matter tho.

People have every right to complain on a gaming website about what many perceive is a negative trend in gaming. If YOU don't like it, skip the comment. I thought we had a thing against calling people dumb shit like crybabies now. That said, I've decided I'm no longer buying games from companies that do this, especially at 30 bucks a pop. I bought the complete edition recently...not so complete now.

You mean Deluxe Edition? I don't see a complete edition for sale on the Xbox Store.

I think you're confused, or maybe not familiar with the concept. The whole object of a season pass is to PREPAY the developers for future content. That's why they offer it at launch and that's why people buy it.

If they had called it "Season 1" implying that there would be future content not included with (like Killer Instinct for example) I would've been ok with it. Calling it simply a season pass is pretty dishonest.

Also, calling those who are making a legitimate argument about this crybabies is pretty ignorant.

Which weapons did Heihachi and Devil Jin use as guest characters? Oh right, they didn't use any. Mai would be fine with her fans (both weapons and admirers laugh).
