Proper DLC would be a BRAND NEW WORLD and it would come out YEARS after the game did. Not a month or two. DLC coming out a month or two after the full game is just telling us the game was shipped incomplete.
What is awful are these new levels. It is like Nintendo took a page from the Mega Man 9 design course. This is not the levels people want. What people want is NEW CONTENT, not levels that a kid can hack in a rom. NEW CONTENT means new environments. It means a new world. Like if the DLC was a ‘Card World’ or ‘Haunted World’ or ‘Factory World’, people would get very excited. Instead, it is this crap.
“But Malstrom, but Mastrom,” sneers a reader. “I declare no one can say anything about the DLC because Super Mario Brothers 4 Advance had the E-Card reader. Where were you then?”
People were against the E-Card reader levels too, dumbass. Why do you think the E-reader sold like shit? But the significant difference is that NSMB 2 was not a port of a home console game released a decade ago. It’s only been a month or two and now here is the DLC. And it is crappy DLC! It is as if someone did a rom hack. The is blatant ‘take as much money as we can’ behavior. If I wanted that experience, I’d just purchase a console from Nintendo’s competitors.
I do not recognize this company anymore.
