Yeah the whole DLC thing is a joke.
I played several games that make you pay to unlock things that are already on the disc. I try to figure out why I'm only getting 100 kilobyte download and sure enough it was already on the disc on several games I played.
Why should we have to pay for something on a disc we already payed for?
I haven't run into these issues yet on GTA V that everyone else has, although I really thought they could fix the pop up issues which are borderline ridiculous if they aren't fully ridiculous.
The problem is there are 25,5 million or so that don't post on these forums and they just brush us all off on this site.
To me it seems totally in line with 2K Games and how they run their operations.
I was a video game champion for NHL 2K9 in Canada here. They flew me to the all-star game and provided a nice hotel but they didn't cover any of my food. Of course they didn't tell me this till I was just about to leave to Montreal on a plane from Vancouver.
Then when I got to Montreal I found out that the guy I was playing had a press pass for his entire family and himself and could walk around no problem. I ran around and around montreal, no representatitive would meet me and it was almost as if they were trying to shut me out of the game all together. I was arguing with security guards and everything (this is the same company that owns Rockstar now and 2kSports). Finally I got in and won the game, yet my mom who was there they were unable to let her in while the guy I played had full press passes and his entire family there while my brother and sister had to wait out in the cold montreal winter and were unable to see my game after driving out from near Toronto.
Then I find out the guy I played had won some Nintendo Wii tournament and they had changed our game so that we would play at the side of the building when we were supposed to play at center ice. He then got to play his Wii on Center Ice. I couldn't believe the guy I beat was standing at center ice when I was the champion. I never really filed lawsuit but I was told I could have because they didn't honor the grand prize which was to "play the final game at center ice".
So in summery
They gave only one person press passes and his family and not me the winner
They didn't provide food for the weekend or cover hotel food or anything like that, not even a complimentary breakfast
2K representatives were either really dumb or they were trying to keep me from getting to the event.
And there was a lot more to that story if I can even remember it all. It was like on bad thing after the other, 2K guys were not very helpful and I actually was arguing with them about why they were putting so much energy into a system like the Nintendo Wii and sure enough NHL 2K is now a dead series if they had only listened to me years ago and fixed all the glitches, which are also now prevelant in GTA V and seems to be a 2k/Rockstar trend)
It was a good event I'm glad I won in all that but they really were brutal to deal with and I literally almost missed my game saying that they would have to just hand him the championship if I didn't show up when they didn't give me any press passes so security would let me in.
