Listification: Top 5 Worst DLC

Listification: Top 5 Worst DLC

Hate it or love it, downloadable content is here to stay. People get more content, studios and developers get more money so they can turn around and make more content. Thus the multi-billion dollar gaming industry cycle continues. But sometimes we have to draw a line in the sand and say “No more shitty DLC that robs us of our hard earned dollars and rewards our loyalty and love of gaming with a Cleveland steamer to the chest.”  Our battle cry needs some work, but in the mean time let’s look at the worst DLC ever offered to gamers.

1) Everything – Typing of the Undead: Overkill

DLC01001

No extra levels are included in this DLC. No new weapons or characters. What do you get in the 5 packs of DLC for 15 dollars? Words. This DLC adds new words for you to type as you play through this modification/reboot/re-imagining of the 1998 rail gun shooter, House of the Dead II. Save 15 dollars and just make up your own words to type. You may not make it very far in the game but with 15 extra dollars you will make it unbelievably far at Taco Bell.

No want spurting. No spurting.

No want spurting. No spurting.

2) Horse Armor – Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

DLC01003

This is the grand daddy of all useless DLC, adding cosmetic only armor for your four-legged companion. This threw gamers in an uproar, because cash grabs like these had yet to become commonplace. Like nipples on a man, this armor does nothing to help protect from enemy attacks. Also like male nipples, I wouldn’t pay 3 dollars to use them.

I'd pay much more.

I’d pay much more.

3) Ultimate Fellowship Pack – South Park: The Stick of Truth

DLC01005

An overlooked gem of 2014, South Park and the Stick of Truth made up for the horrendous games that came before, making Matt Parker and Trey Stone famous in the video game world. Unfortunately, someone along the way told them that costumes make great DLC. In this pack are four costumes that, unlike the horse armor above, at least buff your stats. At least for the 20 minutes it take you to reach around level 3 in the game and find costumes that are better. 3 bucks for for 20 minutes.

"3 bucks for 20 minutes", said Cartman.

“3 bucks for 20 minutes”, said Cartman.

4) Blunt Force Pack – Call of Duty: Ghosts

DLC01007

Horrible pun aside, this is the best idea Activision has ever had. This pack seems to be made for those 12-15 year old kids that want to show off to their friends that they are edgy. Not to mention, what goes better with Mountain Dew and Doritos than ripping a fat blunt while murdering strangers across the internet?

The eyes of a stoned cold killer.

The eyes of a stoned cold killer.

5) Nintendo Amiibo

DLC01009

For the uninitiated into the cult, amiibos are small toys of quintessential classic Nintendo characters including Mario, Luigi, Peach, and the Wii Fit Trainer. These are 15 dollar Pokemon that you don’t even have to go into the wild to get…unless you get them from Walmart. The problem is that the consumer doesn’t know what content the character unlocks until they buy the toy, an amiibo enabled game, and try it.

Nothing says cult like a golden idol.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Transportable Media Player. Not a website browser. Not a recreation machine. Possibly within just the foreseeable future it will do even superior within people areas, still for currently it can be a Great direction towards arrange and hear in the direction of your audio and movies, and is with out peer in just that regard.

    This is turning out to be a little bit excess subjective, but I a lot want the Zune Marketplace. The interface is vibrant, consists of extra aptitude, and some cool attributes which includes ‘Mixview’ that let oneself instantly watch related albums, audio, or other users related towards what you are listening in direction of. Clicking upon just one of these will center upon that product, and yet another preset of “neighbors” will occur into belief, allowing yourself towards navigate in the vicinity of researching by means of equivalent artists, music, or consumers. Speaking of end users, the Zune “Social” is as well superb enjoyment, allowing by yourself find some others with shared preferences and becoming friends with them. Oneself then can listen towards a playlist developed centered on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening towards, which is also interesting. Those people fearful with privacy will be relieved to recognize on your own can keep away from the community from watching your person listening behavior if by yourself as a result acquire.

    Zune and iPod: Highest people today review the Zune towards the Touch, nevertheless when observing how slim and surprisingly low and mild it is, I consider it in direction of be a in its place distinctive hybrid that brings together characteristics of both of those the Contact and the Nano. It is really amazingly colorful and gorgeous OLED screen is marginally more compact than the contact screen, but the player by itself feels relatively a bit scaled-down and lighter. It weighs over 2/3 as much, and is noticeably scaled-down in width and height, When getting accurately a hair thicker.
