I am a grumpy individual so plenty of things tend to irritate me, but do you know what really grinds my gears? Retail specific DLC. You know, the kind where Space Marine 5768 gets a rockin’ pair of pink sunglasses if you pre-order at EB. Or Beefcake McJuicyfruit gets a spiffy loincloth EXCLUSIVELY WHEN YOU PRE-ORDER AT JB HI-FI. Urgh.
But despite the fact that Konami US are playing billy suggers with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance — making the Grey Fox DLC exclusive to those that pre-order at Gamestop — in Australia everyone gets to partake in the DLC, regardless of where they pre-order from. Phew.
It’s almost insanity, however, that this is newsworthy, but in this day and age it sorta is! For Metal Gear fans, playing as Grey Fox is a huge incentive, so I’m actually truly surprised that fact hasn’t been exploited at retail — but I’m also very happy.
