GamesBeat Metal Gear Rising and the DLC problem February 4, 2013 8:31 PM Ethan Clevenger This post has not been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff. Forgive me for beating a dead horse here, but Metal Gear Rising is showcasing a particularly awful kind of DLC. Not only is this DLC being pushed, with screenshots, a solid two weeks before release, but the DLC is VR missions – staples of the Metal Gear Solid series that have, until now, shipped on disc. Now it costs extra. At the same time, Ni No Kuni and Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale are both staging free DLC. So paint me befuddled. That’s all I have to say.
