at first i know that not all things i will mention you’re responding for, or is your concern, but i think you should knew it. It sounded in the description of the Forums like you’re interested in the opinions, and experience of your follow Gamers and customers. And i hope i’m understandable, english isn’t my mother language and it is now several years ago i had this in School.
I’m a pc gamer and also a collector. I love to buy Special and collectors Edition, i think everybody needs some Hobbys. (Hence a lot of CE’s aren’t worth the money or are in a bad Quality, nonetheless as a collector your are willing to buy it.) Also i Support the initiative to buy local. (Especially not supporting some online stores that well known for bad work conditions, exploiting affiliates aso.) So it is a shame that there is something going on on the market, that you get everywhere different preorder bonuses. Especially when “the best ones” are at the stores you will not supporting. I don’t like this trend and i think there are many like me, sharing the same opionion out there.
Also there is some bad habit evolving with dlc’s. Mostly pushed by a Publisher who elected the worst Company several years in a row. ( with ruining and out bleeding some very good and popular franchises) But it is not only this Publisher, today are most of the great ones doing such things and forcing the developers to produce such stuff, some are better, some are worse, but it is a negative trend.
And i fear this Game is going in such direction, which it truly not deserves.
This Game is great, it Rocks, really! It was one of the 2 most anticipated Games in the last years for me. I Already loved Left 4 Dead (i posses both games), and when i heared from Evolve (which was Long before all my friends does) i was already in love and wanted that game and was eager to Play it. And soon it was listed in my local store i preorderd it last year. (I also have an Arrangement with the store here, the owner knows me and that im always wants the ce’s sometimes the Special Editions are later announced as the normal ones, so he does upgrade my order to the Ce’s. when he hears about it.)
And now with this Monster Race pack and the dlc’s i’m Feeling punished.
I was one of the first who believed in the game and got faith in it.
It’s no matter of the cost. But that i got less Content than other People that decided for the game one week before release is a shame.
Also that i got no possibility to upgrade to this pack, and i must buy the stuff individually with financial loss.
Also i got problems with my my2k account AND the Smartphone game. (Data erased account with was active seemes to be from one day to another inactice and i can’t logg in) Im in contact with the 2k Support and we’re conferecing now for over a week, and im not really Close to a solution.
(Had to go, will write more later)
What i wanted to say is, this game is great, really and it surpassed my expectations, but a lot of the circumstances around the game are a shame and reasons for a lot of ppl to avoid it, and that game will not getting the Attention that it deserves, what makes me sad.
With Kind regards
