[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!

Playthrough: Destiny's Mars has cars, but not a single hot dog in sight

I've come down with a bad case of Dumpster Mono, and Max Scoville is terrified of germs, so he made me stay home so he could play Destiny and call it 'work'. But, without my responsible guidance, he got tricked into playing ...more

Max and Bill must kill the Moon-Princes

Man, Destiny. I seriously can't remember the last game that I felt so ambivalent about, but was so completely hooked on. Here's me and Bill dicking around on the Moon and discussing our general thoughts on the game, and killing the Moon-Princes with a big dumb sword. Is it a "Let's Play?" I don't know. But we're enjoying ourselves, and maybe you'll enjoy watching our enjoyment.more
