Can I officially say I'm now pissed off at the situation with this DLC for the XBox. Promised at launch, delayed, delayed again, and now delayed with an undisclosed date. It's no way to manage your business, and a poor way to treat customers.

Well, in all honesty they are having technical problems with the DLC not working right, and trying to fix that while putting up with Microsoft's approval process (which has always been shit, pretty much).

I'm rather unhappy by it, too... But when the DLC isn't working, the DLC isn't working. I'm more than willing to not give them grief about it seeing as they're also annoyed by the problems they are having with it, as well.

When they eventually get it up there, i'm sure I'll get it, though.

Except that i'll have to pay for my pre-order dlc again because I completely lost the code and accidentally threw out my receipt with that printed on it.

Well they might be annoyed, and they might be having problems, but the point is that if you bring a product to the marketplace, that product needs to deliver. This DLC was originally supposed to be present from day 1, on release. That means all testing should have been completed at the same time as for the original game.

The Microsoft approval process is a different thing (though arguably that should also have ben factored into the build). However, there shouldn't still issues at their end with it this late in the game. Either a major problem has been unearthed which they didn't anticipate - which smacks of incompetence - or else they knew it was never going to be ready on time - which smacks of dishonesty with their customers. Either way its not a good reflection.

What's more, as All Stars is really a game with a limited life, the presence of DLC is very important in keeping it alive, so it should have been a priority.

It will be sorted in the end, and I'm not going crazy over it, but I do think its pretty poor.

Well, if your unhappy with their problems, they're giving a free bonus by way of apology.


.................R-Truth for free.

Yes.....I saw that....

At least if he is a stand alone DLC I have the option of not bothering to download him. However, I'm happy its now been sorted and I'm looking forward to playing as the five new characters we have got. Hoping Dusty's bionic elbow is suitably OTT.

I seriously hope that I can pay for the Dibiase's and that it's not just "no preorder, no download", because I have to buy them, now.

I lost my code, and I'm certain I accidentally threw it in the trash while cleaning my house.

If you can't buy them now, I'm sure you will be able to shortly.

Pity about the number of CAW slots. I've run out and haven't done half the people I wanted to do. Made Jim Ross for a Cole/Ross match and with Andre's moveset and Big Show or Edge's finisher, the guy is unstoppable.

Just downloaded the Dibiase DLC. They are fantastic!!!

Dibiase Jr has a fantastic million dollar dream Russian leg sweep into a camel clutch variation, and Sr's Million Dollar fist drop is a thing of beauty.

Both have terrific movesets and very nice combos.

Sad

They aren't even offering the Dibiase downloads to anyone who didn't pre-order...

Or, for people like me who DID pre-order but lost the code. That SUCKS. Sad


.....And I remember how immensely long it took for them to offer Bret Hart on Svr11 to everyone. This sucks. Looks like i'll be wating at least several months LONGER for that.

I'm sure you will be able to get hold of a code somewhere. Someone will be selling theirs on Ebay for a couple of dollars.

I attempted to call Gamestop for a replacement. The guy, after hearing my story, was happy to help...

Except that when he tried printing a new receipt to get a new code, it wasn't coming up anymore, and new prints have been discontinued.

SO CLOSE. AARGH.

As for ebay, there's no way I can even think of to avoid being lied to by someone who doesn't have any code to give.

Honky, Dusty, and Cody are all good. I like Dusty's model. But can't get the hang of all their combos yet. Loving Dibiase Jrs move set though.

I noticed something about Honky Tonk Man's finisher.

Uh.. it seems.. different.. than the Shake Rattle and Roll in the old video THQ put out way back.

During one part, for me, in his finisher, when he swivels his hips, they cut to an odd angle of the logo on his attire.

I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the rumor I'd been reading in places a few weeks ago that Xbox 360 originally rejected the DLC and delayed it because they had an "issue" of it, and thus was why Microsoft made them resubmit.

Because if so, that strikes me as totally stupid, yet it's something MS has done before. Not allowed a game that the PSN did allow due to MS's not approving the "appropriateness" of it's content.

And if that's the case, then why in the fuck does their Marketplace DX glowsticks have the crotch chop? I dunno anymore, lol.
