Do they just want to make players wait for no reason whatsoever.

It brings novelty constantly and every time there's a new event quest you're assured to find many rooms where people are farming it.

It's called marketing and drawing the game out, also not to mention having all the good weapons in easy DLC fights, off the start give extras to new players. This way, it draws it out a bit, and gives people a reason to come back and play and keeeeep playing this game.

So yeah no reason then, great move capcom you just removed a good deal of content to people without online access and even if that is just one person its still a pretty horrible idea.

They get the same play time so it really does not matter.

The way you complain about it you'd think you were paying for it.

I personally don't mind episodic release. It keeps the game fresh.
I'm not Superman, that's for sure. And I'm not Batman or Spiderman or Aquaman or a wolfman or a merman. I'm not brahman or common or ramen, either.

They use assets that are already on disk by creating new code and releasing it. The games been out just over a month, so what we receive now is content already released in other regions. There won't be a time where we get content first unless its US exclusive.

They create the new code in Japan, release it there first, then localize it for other regions.

It doesn't take that long to download them. If you have the 3DS version, you can just find a hotspot and download them.

I'm just happy it's all free.

There are 37 Event quests VS 327 Village & Port quests. “good deal of content” LOL
Come one, please. We are in 2013. Of course there are people who can't access the Internet with their console but does that even represent say 10% of buyers?
