No, not really. You aren't obliged to buy everything, just the stuff you want.

Well, I dunno about you, but when I buy a game, I like to think that the price I paid is all, or at least almost all, I will need to spend on the game. Completing everything in games can be fun too assuming you don't pay 2x the amount in DLC.
Everyone gets their panties in a knot when Capcom locks content on a disk. They are bad for ripping off their fans. Those terrible people. How dare they release an expansion.
Assuming Hyperdimension Neptunia's DLC isn't buying a new game entirely, it's like spending $100 more for UMvC3... but you have to get the original game first on top of that.

Whether $100 of DLC is acceptable is entirely contextual

If it's $100 of s*** that's already on the disc/released day one/could've easily been on the disc otherwise, THAT'S unjustifiable.

If none of it was on the disc, it adds to the original game, and it's all optional (as in not required to fully complete the game or understand the story), then that's just fine.

"You don't have to buy it if you don't like it" does not excuse s*** business practices.

Of course it is. Why did I expect any different?

"The sad thing is there are people out there who would gladly spend money for that."

[EDIT] Clarification: It is sad that people would spend that much on so little.

Whats wrong with more costumes? It adds a little diversity to the game.

Although it's optional content, if I played and enjoyed HN from day one, then learned about its huge amount of DLC, I would have probably rather have waited for them to add the costumes to be actually in the game rather than pay $100. I mean, $100 is a lot for DLC.

Cheap, artificial, and completely aesthetic diversity. Doesn't do jack s*** regarding actual plot or gameplay, unless the cute outfits actually have special effects when equipped.

You're telling me you wouldn't pay money for cute girls to be even cuter?

Are you some kinda f*****, son? Because you'd have to suck dicks every day to not be willing to pay money for cute girls having cuter outfits, you know.

There's thousand of ways to see cute girls in cute outfits. I could easily do it without having to pay money. It's called being resourceful.

That's not the point.

If you're playing a video game and there's some cute girls, and you have the option to pay money to see the cute girls in even cuter outfits, you're a f***** if you don't take it.

So I'm a f***** for wasting money on something that doesn't enrich the gameplay or story.

Yeah, okay. You caught me.

No, you're a f***** for not wanting your cute girls to be even cuter.
