So it looks as if the only appreciable benefit of the 'Deluxe' edition (skins mean nothing to me) is the ability to swap out the soundtrack for the original?

Crumbs, Gem, I don't want to kill anyone's enthusiasm for any game! The game itself looks to be a great remake... it's more the style of PushSquare's reporting of the "Deluxe exclusive" stuff that grinded my gears :-) .

Not on you mate, but between Capcom and the press kissing their ass I'm no longer buying it. I'll stick with the original. :D

It’s up to you, of course, but you could just not buy the dlc...

It's not so much the dlc it's the whole industry wide attitude surrounding it, including the press that has made my decision. I used to think I was indifferent about the situation, but if I'm being honest with myself this increasing goal to cram MTs into any game, even unnecessarily, does grate somewhat.

Nope, sticking to my guns hereon in. If I get a whiff of a publisher gutting a game and forcing MTs, (particularly those that smack if a f2p mobile mechanic as with AC Odyssey), into a title when they're not needed then I won't buy it. Simple as that.

I’d love to join you on that pedestal, but I want to play the game too damned much. Besides, I’ve always enjoyed the feeling of superiority that I get from never purchasing anything using an MT, actively preferring purchasing games where content can be unlocked through repeat/ extended play.

Capcom are infamous for their rubbish costumes anyway, although the six(?) dlc characters in their new Marvel game grated a bit (not that I would have used them anyway)...

Also, have you got a good pc? Just pirate that gooseberry fool!

Yeah I've a reasonably good PC and a very fast internet connection. I could pirate it. That said, I could just buy a second hand copy on console at a later date. Refuse to buy it new though for reasons stated.

Well, you still won’t be able to get any of the download content, but at least you won’t be supporting the developer’s anti-consumer choices...

As the industry moves further and more aggressively into discovering news ways to attempt to fleece consumers we're well beyond the point of feeling sorry for the "poor old games publisher" to give a gooseberry fool about video game piracy.

I could buy it pre-owned and the publisher would still not see a penny of my money so what's the difference really.

I'm patiently counting down the days to this coming out. It looks so good, I need it in my life more than any other game right now.

Um, actually...more often than not pirated games do indeed include extra content like pre-order DLC and downloadables. In fact, with games like the Arkham series and their convoluted retailer specific Pre-order bonuses, pirating the game is the only way to get every piece of content. Which is ridiculous.

Or so I heard... :shifty:

I’ll just buy the standard edition. Don’t give an ass about skin DLCs.
