    Nice to see someone finally decided to make a season pass cost THE SAME PRICE AS THE GAME! Pass, and pass. What's next, a season pass that is MORE than the game??
    Well Forza Horizon's season pass cost almost as much as the game (in fact it probably is more by now). And all you get is shitty cars that are all virtually the same lol
    No comment on horizon...been torched for expressing my opinion on that overpriced pass already!

    Quite a few games have had season passes priced "close" to the retail price of the game ($50 pass, $60 game), but most of those, barring sales, saved you a little bit of money and actually had content...an xbla game with a season pass that cost the same price as the game, especially in a game with very little "content" (its an arena battle mp game) is absurd.

    I guess the general rule is if you are a big enough fan, you will buy the passes at launch regardless of the price. My take on them is that they eventually go on sale, and a lot of time it's actually cheaper out of pocket for me to simply buy the content as it comes out, since you can use msp sales, trade credit, xbl rewards, and bing rewards to offset the cost.

    Pricing like this (and dogfight 1942) make the decision to not purchase until its on sale very easy.
    Killer Punks...all that needs to be said.

    It's actually not as bad as it appears to be at first glance. Looks like the Season Pass will not only grant access to Survival Mode, but instant access to 12 more Guardians. Those same Guardians might be purchasable using the in-game currency once they're released, or just playable thanks to the "Free Guardian Rotation" they have for each week.

    Turns out, the game is EVEN MORE like League of Legends then I was expecting, which blunts the Season Pass quite a bit.

    Didn't they say revert would only work in the new levels
    They did, but then they changed their mind about 2 weeks ago.

    Still got Tony Hawk sitting on my wish list - hoping it might be amongst the Christmas/New Year sales :)
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    I'd almost be willing to bet that the score based achievements from the core game will block the achievement if you revert in the combos for it.

    Now that would be worth seeing people get mad over! lol

    I wish, but I doubt it. It'd be way too easy to accidentally hit the revert button. That'd make it even harder lol.

    how does no revert fare against revert online? Or is it a dlc enabled option in multilayer
    I'll just put this right here.

    You can't join both need the pack. I got 1,4 million point combo with steve cab. I haven't even upped all the stats. The revert works best in pools.

    Of course combos need a revert and manual to be complete.

    Yes indeed. It works in normal halfpipes 90% of the time it's all about the quick timing of the manual.
