Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC provides fun and problems
When a game is released we expect it to be in a finished form (meaning the ending is already developed) apart from new content to help the game along and earn some extra money for those behind the scenes. This might not be the case for Final Fantasy XIII-2, as the DLC could not only offer more in the way of gameplay etc but also the ending of the game as well.
As you would imagine users have been taking to forums to express the fun they believe they will have with the downloadable content, along with the problems as well. Before we get into this we thought you might need reminding that the first DLC (see screenshots) for FFXIII-2 is ready for download, which sees an epic battle with Lightning and Master Sergeant Amodar.
If you manage to beat the two of them in the first Coliseum pack then you acquire them as allies and they will then be added to your roster, we would like to know if you have beaten them yet becasue we have had reports from a few of our readers that they were too easy?
Speaking of issues it seems as though some gamers who downloaded the new DLC for Final Fantasy XIII-2 (read reviews here) have been experiencing some problems, but most of them ethical because Lighting appeared in the trailers and on the cover, so have an issue with buying the DLC for her. It’s little things like this that seem to be happening more frequently and could only get worse in the future.
Let’s say for a moment that a DLC will determine the ending of Final Fantasy XIII-2 how long will it be before fans of the franchise start to complain, as having to pay to complete a game could leave a bad taste in their mouths – well most of them anyway?
While we may have different views on this we cannot ignore a point made, which suggests there have been many games that do not end properly and leave you with a cliffhanger, such as Mass Effect 2 and there were not many complaints then – well there were on the game when compared to the first ME title.
All the big titles like Call of Duty etc rely on DLCs to give you a more complete story, so while some gamers are unhappy with having to pay more they will keep doing so in order to get the most from whatever game they have chosen to buy in to. There has been an argument that it would be far better to have a third installment of Final Fantasy XIII to complete the story, but surly going down the DLC route is a far cheaper option?
There will be more arguments suggesting XIII-3 would be wanted while other gamers believe that pushing the series to a third title might me going a step too far, where do you stand on this or would you rather sit on the fence?
