      I'm done with that game so hard. The DLC would have to be about a third of what it is to get me back into the game -- especially with all the huge games getting released in the next month.

        I'm also putting SoM on the back burner. There's just too much awesome coming out that I need to play first. I'll definitely give it a go again some time in December.

          I beat every mission in the game -- collectables, dagger/sword/bow, etc. The only thing keeping me from getting all the trophies are some weird things like "poison a chief at his own party", "kill a berserker who's on fire" and other random things that are tough to line up.

            Same here. I don't have 100% achievements but I did get 100% game completion and that's all I wanted. Loved every minute of this game.

        I got the game and season pass for $40 so I can't complain, but as much as I loved the game I don't think I could justify the cost of the DLC for what they're asking. Probably be a sweet deal on a complete edition next year.

          Won't do me any good seeing as I went digital. :/

        The DLC would have to be less than what it is to interest you?

          Either more content (another map to justify the $25) or cheaper.

      The beast hunting quest line was easily the best of all the story missions. More of that is a good thing.
