In my naivety, I'm hoping this is the start of an impending trend of free-for-everyone downloadable content and in turn, creating an overwhelming sense of friendliness and childlike wonder within all humankind and unifying the world in a peaceful harmony, revelling in our newly shared happiness and complete freedoms. The more rational, cynical and misanthropic side of me knows that free DLC comes around all too rarely, and that you Dragon Ball
fans had best grab the content while you can before they inevitably start charging $100 per character just moments before the doom-laden apocalypse kills us all.
What was I talking about? Oh yeah, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast
. Don't forget to check the marketplace every other Thursday for the content, starting tomorrow
today. Check below for a link to Warriors on Earth Pack on xbox.com, where the DLC is now available for download. Did I mention it's lack of price?
