Had it been called something that didn’t have “Edition” in the title (since all other games doing this use “Deluxe Edition” “Explorer’s Edition” etc. to show that you’re buying a version that has DLC included in the purchase price), I’d have opted to buy the DLC separately. As-is, now I’d have to spend an extra $40, making the game’s total $100, $20 of which I have zero interest in using. So because of their marketing, they lost an extra $20 sale. Just one guy, who cares, I get it. But for a man with 3 kids who rarely buys new games, that ■■■■■■ me right off. I could’ve used that money to buy some of the DLC, or even another game. Now it’s just gone. Not amused, not gonna be ok with it, and while sure it’s my fault for not specifically examining the content of the Barbarian Edition, it’s pretty awful that I’m considered at fault for not assuming the devs are using the same friggin’ naming method that everyone else does regarding their content. That tells me the devs aren’t trustworthy, and need to be scrutinized before every purchase. When your customers say that about you, something is wrong.
So again, whatever. I’ll eat the cost, since I have no other option. But I’ll be damned if I ever buy anything from these devs again. And for you saying that it’s all old DLC… yea, I wouldn’t know. I heard the game was awful when it came out so I haven’t even looked at it until last month when I bought it.
