Yeah, Paradox is their publisher, I'm not even slightly surprised. Throw the actually important stuff in the expansion packs, and throw the cosmetic nonsense in the DLC - that's the Paradox way.

Oh, dislike over at Paradox boards is called "Respectfully Disagree". That's uh... Sure. And yeah, Paradox and DLC - I'm more interested in what they'll have to offer in larger paid content packs with... Idunno, story. That can't be modded in.

I'll probably buy it just to support the game as I really liked Tyranny but I'll probably never even download it (Thanks GOG)

 

I still need to do a Scarlet Chorus run but I'm waiting for content DLC before reinstalling

A portrait pack when you can easily create or download much better ones?  I don't think I'd be interested even if it was free.

 

I've been enjoying the game for the week I've played it so far, but I'm not a fan of the portraits.  The quality is meh and IMO the cartoony aesthetic doesn't fit the game at all.  Maybe it's just me. 

 

Hopefully this is just a hold-over before the real DLC.

They did hint over at Paradox forums that something else is coming as well. Paradox usually releases a portrait pack before an actual content DLC.

I find it mildly annoying too, but they've been upfront about their motives several times - that they release non-critical cosmetic dlc, so they can keep a cashflow going, that allows them to make and keep fine-tuning their products. Which I can respect.

That's it? A portrait pack? Don't get me long, I LOVE portraits, but considering we're talking about Tyranny, a game synonymous with "unfinished", I can't help but feel those efforts could have been better directed elsewhere...

Inspired by the portrait pack DLC, I've decide to do a Tyranny let's play as Rita Repulsa (I was a 80s-90s kid).

So I take it this Horde - Disfavored choice is permanent regardless of how much favor you have with the faction you do not choose?

FYI, Tyranny is 33% off on ParadoxPlaza now and the coupon from the PoE2 campaign stacks with that: https://www.paradoxplaza.com/tyranny

 

Which means you can get it for as low as $15.

Which is quite an achievement, considering the maps are like 3 by 3 meters large.

This whole "Wimin are strong. Power to the matriarchy. Ain't we cool for making strong wimin in our game" is getting old.

Actually the next time I hear "Am not beastman! Am beastwoman! Rut-mate-kill-lol!" I might just end up uninstalling out of overexposure to badly written pseudo-feminism.
