[Every Friday (or whenever), Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]

With the release of another high-profile game in Aliens: Colonial Marines comes the announcement of another season pass

Originally seen as good-natured offerings -- granting players a discount on downloadable content -- season passes have started to feel "less like good will, and more like outright exploitation." 

The season pass is ushering in a new form of transaction where the consumer pays for, often times, unannounced content that has no definite foreshadowing of being worthwhile or not. In today's market it's not uncommon for the downloadable content of a AAA game to be less than stellar, but you still own it whether you like it or not. 

So, what's your take on season passes? Have you ever bought one? Ever been burned by one? Do you wait for a game with downloadable content to hopefully release an "All in One" edition? Drop a comment!

What's Up: Guardians of the Galaxy, gettin' zen with Sentris, and our dumb PAX panel

I forgot that I saw Guardians of the Galaxy last week, because it was good, but not as good as everyone's been saying. I also got real mellow playing the music puzzle game Sentris, and I want you to come to our stupid panel at PAX.more
