DLC resolves Asura’s Wrath ending, Mass Effect 3 next
News of downloadable content to give Asura’s Wrath an ending fans will appreciate could assist those who found it to be a bit flat, which is a feeling also associated with some Mass Effect 3 fans. Hopefully the arrival of DLC will satisfy issues on both fronts even if there are many that are quite content with what is available.
The announcement of DLC for Asura’s Wrath has not come as a bolt from the blue for Cheat Code Central, as they are not overly impressed with the ending on offer and the recent release of the DLC trailer involves a schedule for five separate releases. Issues with developers releasing incomplete titles to meet deadlines have been causing a bit of a problem lately, and this has given cause to question games like Asura’s Wrath price when additional content is required to get the full experience.
Asura’s Wrath is a game that is all about story and what is being offered as DLC should have been there in the first place, the ending is not seen as an expansion or extra content and those who shell out for a game should not be left wanting. The opinion here is that this may seem like an experiment in producing and marketing extra content but it also seems like an ill-informed idea that is starting a terrible trend, and people who invest in titles including Asura’s Wrath are unlikely to be happy about an incomplete story that involves more money being parted.
In addition to the news on Asura’s Wrath, last month we looked into a feeling of anger from the Hindu community about what is viewed as this game trivializing their faith and all it stands for. Opinions on this amount to a feeling that the content involved could affect the understanding of Hinduism, especially among the younger more impressionable generation. A call to get the facts right with help from Hindu scholars was documented, as the game’s manufactured interpretation of highly revered symbols and concepts is upsetting to those who follow the religion.
A few weeks later, we also wrote about the concerns over the Mass Effect 3 DLC ending and how this issue seems to be escalating, and those who are not happy with the outcome will have to pay an extra $10 to get the ending that should be there already. The trouble is the developers know that there is a vast majority of people out there who will pay out for this experience, and this is exploiting loyal fans. Gamers should not have to pay for DLC to get the ending they deserve and we hope Bioware might give it away.
Do you think this is starting to be a common occurrence these days? Will you be obtaining DLC to resolve the ending of Asura’s Wrath?
