>Game cost $60

So why are people complaining? The Price per track value went down.
>>
>>260051578
Oh and BTW, Both packs add a total of 2gb worth of data. So no this ain't on disc DLC

>>260051578
Source on the price? I can't tell what site that is.
>>
Because 2 characters is not "50%" of the game. I spent sixty 4 bucks for the game, I'm not spending more just to have another 2 characters. It's literally tf2-tier, purely cosmetic
>>
Honestly the only thing bad about this is Cat Peach and Tanooki Mario. Costumes for characters already in game feels like a cheap cop-out.

You're buying the DLC for the entire Mario Kart worth of tracks, not for the dumb characters they threw in on top of them.

Characters/Karts are only a bonus

>>260052959
Ok, i'll admit I thought it was only 2 characters, but still, IMO, Dec should be free since I already gave Nintendo some hadd earned shekels, they shouldn't want more because they made more tracks, we already gave them money.

Yeah, pretty much. All the did is change which direction you're driving in by changing what way the track turns. Pretty basic.

I've only seen this kind of thing happen in one other game, and it was Sony Smash. Online random matches were able to select the dlc stages even if you didn't have them. It's when you wanted to do inhouses do some rounds with a few buddies in the same room that you were required to own the stages.

Remember when MKDS added 16 extra tracks, a mission mode and bossfights? Remember how it didn't use this as a justification to jack up the price?

Now MKU adds 16 tracks (after removing boss fights, missions and battle courses) and suddenly that makes the game worth $77
>>
>>260056671
You gotta understand the jewish mindset. All downloadable content, even after the game has been out for a while, is retroactively known as a fact to be content cut from the main game just so they can sell it to you for more than the base price.

This content is an integral part of the main experience and they're only making it separately so they can charge you for it. DLC is always bad no matter how much it adds, because adding more content obviously means they took that content out from that completed full game before they released it, every time.

No you idiots. Read what I'm posting.

I don't mean "it" as in DLC itself but instead when you draw the line. You make excuses, "this is worth it" "this isn't" I mean fuck even looking at horse armor, it was garbage but some of the other oblivion DLC wasn't.

The point is so long as you consume it expect more. Good? bad? that's unclear, probably examples of both are on their way

Both from Nintendo, the company many swore just a bit ago and even supported by some simply because of the lack of DLC. Now they got it and some will say its okay others wont

Again, the real issue is why get upset? If someone doesn't like it that's just as fine as you lot enjoying it

Why the fuck aren't the mario kart, party, and sports games just Nintendo themed instead of just Mario? I kind of get before Galaxy, but now the Mario games are so varied that the spin-offs seem unnecessary when we get Mario in different flavors like 2 or 3 times a year.

Yeah but "DLC is DLC" according to /v/, and it's all bad no matter what.
There can be GOOD DLC. Every company releases good DLC from time to time.

People are giving Nintendo shit for something that the rest of the industry has been doing for an entire generation.
This whole "It's only okay when Nintendo does it" is retarded. Nintendo is capable of making both good and bad DLC, just like everyone else.

For a Mario Kart game, which typically ships with 32 tracks, 12 bucks for 16 more tracks is a fucking great deal.

I am completely fine with and proof that Nintendo knows what the fuck they're doing.

Mario Kart 8 has the same amount of tracks as most previous Mario Kart games, as well as about the same amount of racers. Sure, the Battle Mode is gone, but still, I'd say Mario Kart 8 was a finished product.

Now, this DLC is literally what it is: downloadable content. You get more of the game if you enjoyed the core experience, which was not ruined at all by the way.

This is an expansion pack that adds as many tracks as Mario 64 did, only for 12 dollars.

For the first time ever, I get to add new tracks to a Mario Kart game without having to wait an entire generation for the next Mario Kart title.

There was a time when DLC was actually something that was actually meant to enhance the value of the game which you purchased. It's only been since the last generation or so did companies decide to cut games into pieces and call it "DLC."

These days, ANYTHING that has any sort of DLC is vilified on /v/. So much so that a lot of people have forgotten that there was actually a meaningful purpose for it a long time ago, and it involved extending the life of a game and enhancing it's value.

Nintendo is doing this right. Nintendo is a company that doesn't follow trends. That's why people both love and hate the company.

It came with the Orange Box and I've gotten endless free content ever since.
But apparently TF2 does dlc wrong and Nintendo does it "right"

Wait is that real? I thought it was gonna be like $20 for both DLC. Damn $12 for what is basically an actual expansion seems like a steal. Thanks Nintendo!

They do it from selling keys for crap that you're supposed to be able to unlock. Also, they take maps and item models from fans and sell them back. Incremental updates and DLC are not the same thing.

By attaching a price to it, they're set to get it finished at a specific time. When it's free, they get it done whenever they feel like it.

The amount of work it takes between the two is worlds apart. Your argument is still nonsense because they already had the other tracks done.

To my knowledge, they've never done anything like this before and I think Nintendo of all people are huge fucking faggots for charging for the DLC. Considering how MK8 is so short, this shit should be free bonus content. Nintendo should be like Valve and give us shit all gameplay bonus content for free.

This is how the idea for DLC was originally conceived. You take a game that is already completed and out on the market, and if people want additional content, you create some extras and allow those who want it to purchase it. It was only in the seventh gen when publishers started doing pre-order DLC, disc-locked content, and developing DLC alongside the main game that it got the stigma it now has. This is DLC done right people.

But you know the extra maps will be about as good as the ones already in MK8, for a fraction of the price per map.

If you thought MK8 was good fun for your buck, Nintendo must really drop the ball in the simple task of doing more what they already did for the DLC to be worse.
>>
>>260054462

Given how fast we see CoD/Forza/etc releases, it would have been a new $60 game.

The fact that we live in a world where $12 for some extra tracks is a good deal really pisses me off. Specially because if this was PC in the glory days, everyone would be playing tracks they made and shared.

You don't need to pay more. You got what you paid for. Nintendo doesn't have a gun to your head saying 'buy this pack'.

Fucking retards like you people shouldn't be breathing my oxygen.

Don't care what you faggots say or think, $12 for all the stuff they're giving. Seems like a good deal to me.

Im buying it once it becomes available on the e-shop.

are you fucking kidding me? what the fuck do you think these dlcs are? they're EXPANDING the content of the game. you got a full game's worth of characters, kart parts and tracks already. now, 6 months after, there are more tracks, characters and kart parts to EXTEND THE LIFE OF THE GAME. you're bitch about what it's supposed to be, when it already fits the description. i swear to god, some of you people try way too hard to complain about everything. fuck off.

How do I even get the mercedes DLC. I'll wait to buy this stuff till later but I know the Mercedes stuff and patch comes tomorrow is it an auto gift or do I have to redeem something somewhere

I'll buy this.

I'd also buy $5 DLC to remove babies from the game.

To force the devs to actually make the content instead of sitting around drinking since people have already payed for it.

lol do you guys remember when Nintendo said they'd never do DLC
>>
>>260083414
I'd pay NOT to see that happen.
>>
>>260087204
No?

This really shouldn't come off as news considering that NSMB2 and NSMBU did it.
>>
>>260087204

I believe they stated they wouldnt do it the way most companies do, which is blatantly sell an unfinished game for full price and sell the remaining for ridiculous amounts.
>>
>>260051578
I don't want the characters. Since there's no cheaper option to take the tracks without the characters, I just won't get the DLC.

They said they would never have DLC in mind while making a game or cutting content for the DLC.
>>
>>260068648
well idiots will be mad. Ignoring Smash Falcon. Ignoring that design of that "kart" is based on SNES F-Zero. (Did you see wheels? cause I didn't)
Yeah, get more mad. Punch someone cause of your own stupidity. It'll help you, for sure.
>>
>>260088617
>reasonable price
A pack ditching the characters, reskins, and karts with just the tracks for $6 would be welcome. But I don't want to pay extra for content I don't want, period.

Fug, that hits the right spots.

No they said they will never make on disk DLC or DLC that adds no value
>>
>>260051578

With everything that comes with it though, wouldn't it be considered an expansion pack?
>>
>>260088970
By that logic you shouldn't have bought the base game either since it forced you to get a bunch of characters and karts in addition to the tracks instead of giving you the option to buy a cheaper version with only Baby Daisy I know you main her, faggot in it.
>>
>>260089140
Don't worry. I don't feel as though I'll be missing much.
>>
>>260068648
A Mute City track isn't good enough for you?
>>
>>260089521
I did say 'pay extra'. I accept what's in the base game for what it is. But additional DLC packs of assorted content where you're forced to pay for things you don't want just don't seem like a good deal to me. I'd actually like to try the new tracks, but I can do without if it means forced bundles.

And no, the baby characters are awful.
>>
>>260089678
>16 tracks doesn't worth 12$.
Well, I don't know anon. Let's forget about karts and characters.
If they are worse than original MK8 ones - maybe price doesn't worth it. If they are on level of the MK8 tracks - hell yeah worth it. Cheaper than 1$ per track. Seems alright to me.
Even without considering constant bonuses via Deluxe promo.
But just wait till footage of tracks is there.
>>
>>260090651
>But just wait till footage of tracks is there.

Well, OK. Yeah, I can give it that much. Maybe I'll be surprised. Fingers crossed.
>>
>>260090454
It's literally an expansion pack for the game, it makes sense that it adds a little of everything the base game has. Hell, they're even releasing a pack of karts for free, so you know they're not adding to the price for that.

You must have some serious autism to take issue with this one very specific thing. I'm surprised your not throwing a fit about not being able to buy each track individually.
>>
>>260090928
I really looking forward to how authors of MK8 soundtrack will handle Mute Town music.
>>
>>260057495
Planned =/ Finished and cut for the sake of making it DLC

as a note the cup icons aren't even the same as the 'beta icons'. It's a Triforce, Animal Crossing Leaf, Yoshi Egg and Cat Bell.
>>
>>260090651
From what we can assume, it's half new tracks and half retro.

The Zelda and Animal Crossing cups will be nintendo themed tracks like Zelda's Lost Woods, F-Zero, Excite Bike and Animal Crossing.

The Egg and Cat Bell cups will probably be retro cups. We can confirm that there are retro tracks as you can see Wario's Gold Mine.
>>
wait a second

mario kart is getting DLC?
The game will get MORE tracks and characters and won't be the same shit for years and years?

fucking awesome, why didn't they do this before
>>
>>260091623
That makes sense.
And considering how good retro tracks were remade, I think we are in for a ride.
