I bought Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 on discount around the new year for the PS3. I started playing a few weeks ago and checked for DLC cause I thought OK, I'll pony up some cash to unlock a few characters....nothing. Then I did some searches and found some interesting news (see below). I also saw the usual ad from Gamestop about new exclusive characters for pre-order customers for Bioshock 2. (see below)

I then sent the following email to my buddy.
As far as I'm concerened, I feel like I just got screwed. So guess what, no Call of Duties and no Activision games for me forever. I can handle not playing COD, I got a million other games. Kind of a tough choice but screw them, I'm done. Activision can drop dead.

I saw this ad from Gamestop. Luckily its multiplayer but thats besides the point. This is absolute f~king bullshit. I should not be forced to buy it from a certain retailer because of these pre-nups they do with the publisher. This has really got to stop.

"Reserve to Unlock Exclusive Multiplayer Characters

When you pre-order any edition of Bioshock 2, you can receive a code to unlock Blanche the actress and Zigo the fisherman in multiplayer mode, while supplies last. Before you decide which edition to reserve, make sure you check out the Bioshock 2 Limited Edition. It includes a 180-gram vinyl LP with the BioShock orchestral score (good luck finding a turntable to play it on), an audio CD with the BioShock 2 orchestral score (don't put this one on your turntable), three vintage Rapture advertisement posters, and a hardcover BioShock 2 art book.

Set about 10 years after the events of the critically acclaimed Bioshock, the sequel will return you to the undersea city of Rapture, this time as the original Big Daddy. This one is going to rock your diving boots off.

Available February 9 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC: Reserve now!"


So remember that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Juggernaut character for pre-orders last year? Well.....not only can you not get that character anymore but they also removed all DLC from the PSN store (NOT Microsoft) for that game without even a reason why. So if you downloaded DLC a few months ago or pre-ordered it, your lucky to have what you have. All the rest of us are forever screwed.
