Tales of Bearsworth Manor Additional Content

Posted by Corbie Dillard

A rundown of the downloadable content and what it will cost you

Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Chaotic Conflicts and Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Puzzling Pages have only just hit the WiiWare service in North America and we've already received the list of all additional content that will be made available for both titles in the coming weeks.

You can take a look at the listing below for a price list of the content you can expect available soon for each title. It's a rather lengthy list of content, but we can't help but think that the Titanic Troll might just be worth the extra 2 bucks.

And SQUARE ENIX's strategy of providing consumers with a ridiculous amount of questionable DLC continues.

$41 of downloadable content. Couple that with the $10 price tag and you have a $51 downloadable game. That is just ridiculous! Who needs that much DLC?

So Chaos Conflicts has 2000 points worth of DLC and Puzzling Pages has 2100 points worth of DLC. If you want to get the full experience from both games then you would have to spend 6100 points. No thanks.:P

Trust me, you don't need this DLC to enjoy and get all your money's worth out of the Chaotic Conflicts. Most of this stuff would be more for people who absolutely loved the game and still wanted more. I like the idea of making this stuff available to those who want it. Now when they start cutting into the actual game, then I'll have a problem with it. :)

Fair enough Corbie. Your review of Chaos Conflicts made it sound like a worthy investment. If Puzzling Pages turns out to be good then I may reconsider giving these games a try but I'm still not sold on the DLC. I think Square Enix are just being greedybears.;)

Well if you buy both games and just the chapter packs, that's 4100 Wii points however, if you buy all the units packs as well that's another 2000 Wii points.

I thought FInal Fantasy 4 The After Years dlc was a fine deal but i find this kinda overboard in my opinion, I mean why sell all of these units separately like that or sell units at all for that matter. They should have just kept to the chapter packs if anything at all.

61 bucks for the full thing.

I wonder how this is not a retail game, yet I can see the logic in wanting to let people choose what they want to include in their game, and simply not pay for the things they don't care about, but that's a pretty big leap away of what I'm guessing is going on here.

I hope its not as bad as My Life As A Darklord where you ansoluetely needed the DLC to beat the game.

Yer Corbie I don't get the complaints about the DLC either, apart from the fact that they don't dare try to pull it on PSN and XBL, as most of it is purely optional, cosmetic changes and even without DLC their games have been some of the most content packed, and longest, games on Wiiware.

Yeah. Why is having a lot of DLC a bad thing? Nobody is going to download everything and they are not expected to. Having the wide range of variety to choose the downloads that are right for you is a good thing IMO. However, its when companies start making their games harder intentionally just so people will have to resort to DLC to see more of it that I disagree with. I think the later stages of MLaaD crossed this line. Even with a bunch of DLC, I still had a hard time.

I like how one comment says 41 and another says 61. I got 51, so someone's math is wrong. I'm too lazy to double-check though.

@Objection_Blaster:
CHAOTIC CONFLICTS with all DLC is 3000 pts and PUZZLING PAGES with all DLC is 3100 pts... so it's a total of 6100 pts.

@BassX0:
You say no-one's going to download every DLC?
I'm only downloading complete games (and series), so it's either everything or nothing for me!

I bought the following "Pay&Play"-games with all DLC: My Life as a King (3900pts), My Life as a Darklord (6700pts), LONPOS (3500pts), Bubble Bobble Plus! (1200pts), Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (1100pts), My Zoo (900pts).

I bought all Tales of Monkey Island chapters (5000pts), all BIT.TRIP games (2600pts), all Art Style games (3000pts), all Phoenix Wright games (3100pts), etc. etc.

@NL: I'm a completionist, and coverage of DLC is a huge factor in my buying decision so it's great to see NL doing coverage on DLC software. I hope this is the beginning of consistent Pay&Play coverage and continues to be a standard on NL.

@Caliki: I didn't need the DLC to finish My Life as a Darklord. I got Palom and the extra chapters and that worked out just fine.

Having extra levels as DLC is always great. The extra units depend on how much it changes the game. Let's wait for a review of each DLC item and see how things work out in the end, ok?

I'd like to say instead that nobody should download everything. Downloading all content for The After Years and Tales of Monkey Island is fine but you don't need all the DLC in the MLAA...and Bearsworth games. I suspect that if you were to download it all, it would pretty much remove all challenge from the games which would make them pointless to play. But, it's your money.
