    Cool, was waiting for this. Guess it's only a matter of time before we see the wads appearing then.

    So, in this respect, Pay To Play officially means paying for downloadable content. Interesting. I guess I suppose that's what I thought it was. At this point I'm only going to nab LostWinds. I might pick up FFCC someday.

    I wonder if we're getting weekly updates like the VC has..

    Good thing the dollar is worthing shit! I'm getting Lost Winds when I get home today.

    Now.. that "Pop" game, I saw a trailer of it.. and it's the worst excuse for a game I've ever seen.. you just pop bubbles.. and that's it! How can someone charge 7 dollars for that!? [​IMG]

    How does the DLC work, would it work just like installing another WAD?

    I love microtransactions! It's like being eaten alive by a mosquito.

    And they're not even that "Micro" at all
    $8 for three fucking buldings?
    If you're crazy enough to buy all that shitty FFCC DLC, you end up paying almost $40 for a mini game that hardly competes with FFCC on the DS (from what I've heard and seen)

    If you buy everything, it comes to $31 right now. Plus Japan has even more DLC already out, so expect that soon. I half expect them to release this game at retail eventually because after all the DLC, it's almost the same price as a $50 game.

    I bet the dungeons/many other DLCs were already inside the game data, considering it's only one block (except for costumes, which are probably not because they are more than one block).

    That's why pirate! Is now good. [​IMG]

    The Titles are in the very first post. If you want to pirate, that should be enough to get the job done if they have been released already (may not be already).

    I had a few spare Wii points to blow that have been there since I bought a card for Sin and Punishment (Excellent game BTW) so I tossed some at Defend Your Castle just for the hell of it. Sure enough, besides the graphical change, it doesn't seem any different from the flash game as I remember it.

    And for the comment above, almost definitely. I fucking hate this tactic of selling "content". You've already bought it but you need to buy a key file of some sort (think XBL) that let's you actually access it.

    That's awful.. really.. I'm not buying an incomplete game [​IMG]


    I know it's kinda pointless saying this here but.. Buy the "indie" games on WiiWare like Lost Winds, if they're good of course.. show Nintendo that we want good and inovative games on the Wii. [​IMG]

    On the other hand.. pirate FFCC if you want.. Square already has plenty of money and is charging 15 bucks for an incomplete game ¬¬
    Same goes to Star Soldier R that is not out yet.. it's basically a 5 minute game from what I've heard [​IMG]
