Nice! I never really got on with the whole "season pass" thing. You always run the risk of the DLC not being up to much. I know it might cost more in the long-run, but I prefer to pick and choose my DLC. Glad they went this way with ME:A.

Yeah, some games do it well. Bioshock Infinite had some great content (though it took ages to release).

Some games had hugely disappointing season passes, like Fallout 4. They marketed it as being as big as Fallout 3's DLC content, which it certainly wasn't. Far Harbour was the only good DLC there and it was not worth the cost of the season pass.

Far Harbor was good but i've not done Nuka World yet but for the price I paid for the season pass i'm not grumbling either sometimes its best to wait until you can get them at half the original price

Yeah, with season passes it is best to wait until some worthwhile DLC is released, otherwise you can pay too much and not get what you thought you paid for.

You could always wait for the DLC to come out before buying the season pass to see if it's worth it?
