this is why you were given map editors in all your other games. players could design their own maps and the mission of VIP escort, last man standing, capture the flag, dominate the map (points) and a few others. dlc like this is only worth at best 10% of the price of the original game. because it's already on the disc and just needs a bit of extra code and unlocking codes... i find it perfectly acceptable to hack that. if the parent companies want you to schill out the extra price of 90% to 100% of the game or they will ban you from the online servers for trying to use it......i'm all for people making private servers to screw over the greedy bastards.
i despise online gaming, it's who ever has the best connection or hacks wins unless they are seriously dumb or you have found the critical vulnerability to their hack (no aimbot lock if you don't jump or move type b.s.) and i simply can not tolerate being at the mercy of the company for when i am ALLOWED TO PLAY because they need to fix a hack or fix their equipment or they have pissed off anonymous and their service is being shelled off the face of the planet by script kiddies playng whack a mole with their servers.
if online is required i'm not buying it, if i get it as a present i'll try it right up to the point when i want to play it and the servers go down, then i give it away or throw it in the trash. all my online account info is fictitious anyways since some jerk can steal it, pose as me and get me in trouble for things they do and i go to jail for it, nope.... everything is fictitious so i can sleep at night even if there's a knock at the door and ninjas dressed in black.
"Already a couple of the faithful have sent in checks for a foundation memorial to the innocents who perished at the hands of the ninja at Waco ... I have been criticized by referring to our federal masked men as 'ninja' ... Let us reflect upon the fact that a man who covers his face shows reason to be ashamed of what he is doing. A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target. I see no reason to change that view."

Given this is the most expensive game every developed and considering the amount of time they had to work on this the release day game content over time spent on development didn't add up. For a lot of people it was clear that Bungie had deliberately cut of parts of the game to sell as future dlc.
Well, if people didnt rush day 1 to buy everything that comes out even thou there is a crisis out there, maybe devs would do it well. But right now they barely manage to keep up with so many ppl wanting to buy anything.
I wonder if someone could find out. Gamers might be one of the largest groups of consumers to buy a broken product as soon as its available. I'd expect this to be fully exploited until it changes (it won't). I also suspect gamers are the largest group of people to get all or most of their worldly news from youtubers (lol).
SOme of the dumbest comments I have ever heard. F-14 may be the stupidest person on earth, Clearly an angry un-educated American. Almost his/her entire comment is hypocritical, if they knew anything about game design or network scripting they would realize how ridiculous their opinion is. Online is the future, deal with it, you sound like a 70 year using computers for the first time. And the Waco reference, DA FUQ?! Masks have a function, not to look bad ass, let us not forget the forced marriage and child molestation by the Branch Davidian member Koresh. Who ever f-14 is, you are so confused I feel sorry for anyone who has to have a conversation with your illogical and completely uneducated perspectives. YIKES.
Shorter and shorter games with more and more "already installed" DLCs that costs more and gives less. Soon the "game" will be nothing more than a demo you pay 59.99 for and then pay at least the same for the "dlc's" to get what the game should have been from the beginning!
That is where the majority of the industry seems to be heading with less content and higher prices!
DLC = total rip off. Game industry suck these days. Remember when you buy a games, had 100 hours of playability and no updates or DLC.....
I liked borderland up until I found out they are DLC and extra nicer weapon in them... total letdown.
