The headshot reticule lets Lara utilize her weapons more accurately. When used with the pistol silencer, it makes for a deadly combination (single player upgrade).

get your reticules for a dollar!



also.. that pistol silencer the description mentions?

Pretty sure the blood DLC for Shogun 2 is still my most reviled piece of DLC.

You can unlock the headshot indicator in the game, but it seems to let you buy it after that, anyway. Weird.

im not necesarelly complaining about the price or the practice, and I think that "skins" are kinda common by this point

the hilarious part im refering to here is asking you for a couple bucks to add a reticule and a silencer

I was going to post this. Crusader Kings II also has some out there ones (new logos for dynasties, more accurate faces for Mongol characters, in game music etc) but its balanced with awesome, game changing DLC as well. You've got to strike a balance.

Shogun: Total War 2 is a turn based/Real time strategy game where massive armies of Samurai kill each other but the game shipped with no blood or limb severing even though most of your guys are using swords. For a dollar fifty you can download this blood pack which will now make your soldiers bleed and sometimes sever a limb, or have their own severed, in bloody detail.

The Total War: SHOGUN 2 Blood Pack features new visual effects during real time battles:

Decapitation and limb severing
Blood effects on unit models, equipment and ground
Blood-squirt from projectile and weapon impact
New sounds for dismemberment and spurting blood
Blood-spatter effect on camera
The Blood Pack visual effects can be turned on and off from the game Options menu.

I don't want to spoil or affect the psychology of any German here but it is a pack of blood. The one content always filtered off on games released in Germany.

Pretty sure you get those in the game. The DLC probably just let's you get them earlier. Unlocking in game abilities early is nothing new. See: EA.

Obviously.
Also the pre-orderers it seems. I'm pretty sure I could equip my pistol with a silencer and not having to pay an extra buck for that.


It's kinda creepy to see just how right DLC Quest is when it comes to...well, DLC.
In two years we will buy $5 for being able to go left.

You want a few fps more? Buy our FPS optimization DLC for just $9.99. no refunds. FPS optimization requires latest Nvidia GPU.

Hey Square - you should have made the game HARDER so that this DLC actually would make sense.

Heh. I'm deep into Mechwarrior online right now.

And admittedly that's a F2P game for a niche genre, so the numbers aren't apples to apples; but in that game you're been charged $3-$6 for each paint COLOUR. Then if you like a particular pattern, you can either pay 80c for a one off use of that camo (i.e. you'll lose it when you change it), or you can pay around $5-$7 for a camo that you can use permanently for all mechs of that type.

... I've spent a bit too much on paint jobs in this game. The only other game I've spent this much on paint on is Warhammer 40k! The upside is, you don't have to actually paint the mechs yourself in this game.

Oh... and Hero mechs (exclusive mechs with a money earning bonus) go from $10 to a new record of about $35... per Mech variant! (they're multiple variants for one type).

Most of the time they come with a BGM, different quotes, victory poses. (i.e. Hatsune Miku, Classic Tales of Characters, school, etc.)

Is the Shogun 2 pack hated because the gore is seen as unnecessary/stupid, or because Sega is "charging for a graphical effect"?

Because Sega actually jumped through some massive hoops with the ESRB to ship that. DLC is not supposed to change the base game's rating (in this case, a T), I'm pretty sure this was the first case of rating-changing DLC being allowed by the ESRB.

I just find it funny because it's a graphical effect that usually shipped with a game or not. I don't actually hate it, I own all the Shogun 2 DLC. I know, part of the problem.

I think the Shogun 2 blood DLC is fine because of 2 things

1) No blood allowed in Germany
2) Without it the game is rated T

So I think that having the blood and gore not part of the base game made the worldwide release easier and allowed the game to have a lower age rating. It perhaps could have been free I suppose.
