Burial at Sea DLC worth it for...$20?

I didn't buy either episode because the price seemed high given that I heard it was short (same goes for The Last of Us DLC, which I may never find on sale tbh). Is it worth it at this price? I liked Infinite if that matters, but I hear this game takes place in Rapture.

Edit: Wait, the season pass is $19.99 and includes both of these. All these months later and that's still the best value. I remember now that I was hoping for a sale on THAT.

Has that season pass been on sale at any point >_>?

It does take place in rapture. I got the season pass for like 10 bucks on sale at some point. Wait till the summer sale and see if it goes on sale

$10? Was that from Steam? Either way, that settles this matter. Maybe I'll just go ahead and buy Day Z.

I don't think I paid $20 for the whole game.
You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

I got the season pass for $5 during the Winter sale on Steam. I've only played through Episode 1 and it's... not good. (And I generally enjoyed Infinite.) Can't say whether the second episode is better or not.

Second episode is a pretty big departure from Bioshock Infinite. While it takes place in rapture, it has a heavy emphasis on stealth, your only two weapons being a revolver and a crossbow with multiple times of arrows. You get powers that help your stay out of sight, and you'll generally stay in the shadows.

I quite enjoyed both DLC stories, they're fairly short, but solid.

Episode 1 is OK but overall pretty disappointing while episode 2 is pretty good. They're definitely worth buying if you want more Bioshock but at this point I would pay $10 or less.

Episode 1 is trash. Episode 2 is ok but is even more predictable than the main game seeing how it takes place hours before the events of Bioshock 1..
