    So does anyone actually buy those DOA costumes? Because they seem to release a lot of them on a regular basis...

    Uh, can someone tell me what's up with the already expired challenge for Sleeping Dogs?
    Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Challenges

    The game just came out, usually even the shortest challenges are available for a week. Does anyone have some clarification that they can offer?

    $25 for TWD? I would bite if it included season 2 or if they had an upgrade promotion. I'll wait for a sale.

They should have bundled both seasons and maybe even The Wolf Among Us too. $50 or $60 for a compilation would have been reasonably priced. And no upgrade promotion is a major oversight.

    Unfortunately, because TWD is popular and a critical darling, Telltale can charge full price* for the re-release of a two year old game and people will buy it (and for the easy 1000 GS).

    *the same price it was two years ago

    SE seems to have a problem implementing their challenges properly. Tomb Raider DE had issues with it's challenge as well.

    I'm sorry but didn't Alien Isolation come out like two weeks ago?!, and they couldn't of included this new shit with the core game? The absolute money hungry greed that is dlc is astounding. Not surprised because it must be working. I don't know who the dipshits are out there, forking out their money at this content, that without a doubt was finished and ready to go when the game was released. Yeah I know its only $4 so I don't need any "chillax bro" rebuttals. It just irks me that we as a community tolerate taking it in our collective asses. This shit should've been released with the launch of the game period, double stamped , no erasies.

    Again, TA forgets to update the article with free costume DLC (limited time - two weeks only) for D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die. Three packs came out this week:

    Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Themed Clothes
    Super Time Force Themed Clothes
    Beard Set 1

    Reason #1 that challenges are not ready for prime time


    When the developer messes up a challenge (cause they don't test them, just like they don't test achievements) By the time you realize and patch it (or not), its too late to earn it... cry

This shit should've been released with the launch of the game period, double stamped , no erasies.Well, when Legend of Zelda came out in 1986 it was $60 (I know, cause I bought it on release day /old ), when Alien Isolation came out in 2014, it was also $60 here, but this little known financial thing called Inflation happened in the years between these two mainstream releases. But it seems gamers won't pay $100 for a video game (see the sales of Phantasy Star 4), and I don't blame them, but as a result, the developer and publisher want to get to that $100 price point anyway, and that is why we have the hated DLC. Probably this would have been part of the game, totally not worth the price, but at least I still get the base games cheap, although I usually have to go without the completions, unless a GOTY version comes out. cry

    Yes, they are already unlockable. The achievements have been on xbox.com and TA for a day now (even a couple completions already). Feel free to start it!
