ESH | Doing DLC Right

Ear­li­er this week, the fol­low-up DLC for Dead Space 3 was released.  In spite of fin­ish­ing the game, and thor­ough­ly enjoy­ing my expe­ri­ence, I am cur­rent­ly abstain­ing from down­load­ing this new con­tent.  My choice is not the result of the add-on look­ing unap­peal­ing, quite the con­trary, it has more to do with the con­tent with­in the pack.  There’s a dis­turb­ing trend amongst DLC that some games have been releas­ing where the add-on con­tains sto­ry beats with­in the main plot of the game.  While the argu­ment can be made that with­out the extra devel­op­ment time that DLC allows for, these extra bits wouldn’t even exist, if it comes out one month after release, then it was clear­ly planned from the begin­ning and should be a part of the main game.
