Dark Xionei Why? Because they developed a character class to sell as DLC? Just be glad they aren't going the f2p route and giving out the disc but making you pay for each character, each gun, each quest pack or quest, and access to certain areas in the game.

I think it is completely reasonable for a developer to take and develop DLC while developing the game, then release it a month afterwards when finished polishing it and charge 10 bucks. Hell, making it a pre-order bonus is just great strategy. Anyone who can and is serious about buying the game will and should pre-order simply because it is easier to pay the game off over time then the bulk all at once. It's the way I was and am able to get all of these collector editions I currently am buying this holiday season, but hey the bonus of getting this DLC character for free is a great perk.

$10 is pretty ridiculous for any character whether it be an RPG, Fighting game, or shooter. Of course that remains my opinion, but regardless of how they do things I'll still be purchasing it.

See, I think it all depends on how deep the character is. If it is just a reskin 10 bucks is outrageous, but since the character will have it's own skills, progression, equipment, and will basically be an entirely new way to play the game I think it is reasonable enough. Hell, if they can charge 15 bucks for reskinned maps from old games and such then an entirely new character for 10 bucks sounds ok with me. I see where you are coming from though.

The new character has been announced for a while now, so anyone who complains about paying extra for her should just have pre-ordered. Im so pumped for this game, pre-ordered the day it was available.

Capcom would develop the character during main development of the game and lock it on disc that way their team can focus on upcoming dlc.

Gearbox didn't start seriously working on the mechromancer until after the game went gold and all was done with borderlands + it's free for those who pre-order at any store. The price may be a bit high (no way I would pay for it, but I pre-ordered so) that I think is just overpriced but so far Gearbox hasn't been doing any capcom like activities yet. You can tell by the happy and satisfied fans.

EA did not give From Ashes for free with preorder.

Gearbox gave it away to preorders, this was to stimulate preorders. If your gona bitch, just preorder the damn game, that way you do not have to pay 10 bucks.

To all who are complaining about the price for the dlc mechromancer character.. There is still time to preorder the game and get her for FREE. If you dont think you want to get the game yet then wait one year for the GOTY edition. DLC are inevitable for companies to continue earning profit to create bigger and better games so if you have a problem with that then quit gaming.

I AM SO XITED for the game to come out because I pre ordered and I get all the bonuses like the golden key (I wish I knew what it did) and the golden guns ( I want to know if there worth more and have more power, fire rate, ect.) but most of all I'm looking forward to the mech class, it looks totally badass comPared to the rest of the classes.

But I really think about when play ing these kinds of games is the story line for example bioshock and portal 1-2 are great games when the first borderlands really had no story but I pre ordered it because I herd that this would have a very deap one so I'm keeping my fingers crossed
