Sims 4 Getting expensive with DLC’s

Maybe its just me and maybe this has been happening for years in games but I am starting to think that DLC’s are becoming expensive.
If you follow the channel you will know that I been a huge fan of sims 4 coming to console and whilst I am enjoying the game I have seen the latest game pack surfaced and this has got me thinking that the overall game is starting to get a little expensive to keep up with all the expansion packs. Maybe I have been living under a rock and not paying too much attention but I am literally blown away by how much I may end up possibly paying to have the full experience of Sims 4 after all the DLC has been released.

Sims 4 Getting expensive with DLC’s

The latest game pack Dine out surfaced on the 9th of January and is available for 17.99 or 16.99 if you have EA access and whilst that might not be breaking the bank for some when you consider that the first DLC bundle which consists of City Living, Vintage Glamour Stuff and Vampires cost £45 or £40 with EA Access that is close to £60 and then when you add the base game then you looking at £100 so far for the full experience of the sims.

Now I know what some hardcore fans will say that this has always been the case with PC version and some will say that this is what you should expect from a EA game but I am not gonna lie it has taken me by surprise that I have nearly spent over £100 on Sims 4 especially considering that I got the deluxe version on launch. Obviously I didn’t expect the DLC’s to be free but I thought that we may get a season pass or something for maybe £45 with all DLC and in my eyes £90 for the overall experience could be easily justifiable maybe thats me asking to much and being greedy but I feel by releasing the packs in drips and you keep buying I think it will hurt if EA brings out a complete version of Sims 4 for £45 with all DLC included. Whilst I am not completely sure what expansions will be 100% coming to consoles There is still Get to Work, Get Together and Cats and Dogs all possible to move to console plus not to mention the garage of Stuff packs and game packs which are currently available on the PC version so after every DLC and even the game packs and stuff packs are released god knows how much it will all rack up to.

As I am a fan of the Sims 4 n console and currently enjoying my experience this will have to be a expense that I will have to take on the chin even though it is leaving a bitter taste.

Anyway peeps what do you make of the price for the DLC’s for Sims 4 console version do you think its worth it that you might have to spend close to £100 at this present moment to experience the DLC’s that are currently available. As I said I know that this is the case for PC version and I know that all games nowadays come with DLC’s that will rack up the price for the full experience but I rarely but DLC for game and usually if I do it will have a season pass that will be around £35 so most games that I tend to play or get DLC for will rarely exceed £100 but hey maybe I need to invest more into my games additional content.

Top 5 Must Buy Games March 2019

2019 has already had some awesome released, but even more, great games are on the way. Here are just a few of the games due out in the coming months that need to be on your radar.

Yoshi’s Crafted World

Top 5 Must Buy Games March 2019

Yoshi’s Wooly World was a fantastic game and this follow up looks to be taking things to the next level. The Yoshi series has always been about having fun and fun is what Yoshi’s Crafted World looks like. Hopefully, it will have as many collectibles as Wooly World did as I loved collecting all the different yarn Yoshi’s.

UPPERS

Top 5 Must Buy Games March 2019

There are not enough beat em up style games in the style of things like Final Fight or even a Power Stone. UPPERS though is a game that is bringing the beat em up back. Full of kick-butt action, crazy combos and a ton of attitude! UPPERS is one of the more underrated games that is due out this year. Make sure you take a closer look at this one.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

Top 5 Must Buy Games March 2019

Full disclosure here I am not the biggest fan of The Division, but I know that a lot of people are super stoked for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. This is If you loved the open world RPG style action of the first game, you are no doubt going to be all in with the sequel.

Devil May Cry 5

Top 5 Must Buy Games March 2019

I thought that DMC was a great game…. Not joking I really did, but I did want something that would follow on from the excellent Devil May Cry 4. That is what Capcom is doing with Devil May Cry 5. The action looks slick and insane and that is exactly what you need in a Devil May Cry game.

Dead or Alive 6

Top 5 Must Buy Games March 2019

The Dead or Alive series is pretty awesome and while the fighting game genre is getting pretty overcrowded these days. Dead or Alive 6 is doing more than enough to make it stand out from the crowd. Dead or Alive 6 features a whole new game engine. This makes the game smoother, faster…… and bouncier than ever before. Seriously this game is just pure eye candy! The way the fighters display damage as the fight goes on is really cool. You cannot go wrong with the Dead or Alive series and this game looks to breathe some new life into the franchise.

Nintendo Directs Big Games!

Nintendo Directs Big Games!

February 13th was the first “real” Nintendo Direct in what felt like ages. There were some great games shown and today I want to talk about a few that really caught my attention.

The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening

Nintendo Directs Big Games!

There was a rumor that a new 2D Zelda game was going to be shown at this Nintendo Direct and the one that was shown did not disappoint. This is a remake of the GameBoy game, Link’s Awakening which was the follow on from Link to the Past. The game looks like a million bucks and Link has a real chibi look to him. The gameplay looks to keep the classic overhead Zelda style and that is awesome!

Super Mario Maker 2

Nintendo Directs Big Games!

While it was not the 3D Super Mario Maker that I was hopeful for, Super Mario Maker 2 looks to be a lot of fun. There are loads more things that you can use this time around such as slopes, new enemies, power-ups and so on. They have also included a bunch of stuff from Mario 3D World so it will be interesting to see how that translates into a 2D Mario game. What is crazy is that Super Mario Maker 2 is coming in June!

Astral Chain

Nintendo Directs Big Games!

Of all the games that were shown at this Nintendo Direct, it was Astral Chain that really blew me away. This is an action packed 3rd person action hack and slash game from the people at Platinum Games. It looks fantastic and like it is going to be a whole lot of fun. It features mechs, monsters, a robot dog, crazy fast combat and just a whole lot of over the top action that makes it look like one of the most interesting Switch games for 2019.

Crackdown 3 Is Not The Great Exclusive We Hoped For

Crackdown 3 Is Not The Great Exclusive We Hoped For

Crackdown 3 was supposed to be the first huge Xbox One exclusive of the year. It was the game that was going to show Xbox One fans that Xbox still has some awesome exclusive games just like the other two consoles do.

Crackdown 3 Is Not The Great Exclusive We Hoped For

In all honesty, a lot of people were very excited for Crackdown 3 and with good reason too. The trailers showcased a game that looked like it was a ton of fun and it even had Terry Crews in the trailer so that was awesome.

Now that the game is released though, many major gaming sites are not all that impressed. Over at both GameSpot and IGN, Crackdown 3 has been given the middle of the road average 5 out of 10 score. Both sites call the game underwhelming, rather boring and not all that great!

Crackdown 3 Is Not The Great Exclusive We Hoped For

On Metacritic, you can see that the game (as I write this) is sitting at a rating of 60 from game review scores and at a 4.0 from player review scores. Clearly, Crackdown 3 is a game that is disappointing a lot of people out there. It is kind of like what happened with Sea of Thieves. It was billed at this huge exclusive game that was going to be awesome, but then when it was released it was very underwhelming.

Crackdown 3 Is Not The Great Exclusive We Hoped For

Perhaps it can be turned around and have more fun elements put into it like was done with Sea of Thieves. The problem with that is while for Sea of Thieves players that has been great many people simply lost interest in the game and I have a feeling that Crackdown 3 could end up being the same.

This console generation Sony has been nailing it with the exclusives and of course, so have Nintendo. You have to wonder why Microsoft has found it so hard to compete in this regard?
