SnipeySnake commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

@IxC For me, DLC is acceptable when I'm 100% satisfied with the game and I can't feel like there's anything missing. It's a lot easier to find that something is missing in a sequel of a well established franchise. For Mario Kart 8, one aspect I was disappointed in and felt was a rush job was the battle mode. All other entries in the series had battle mode specific stages so you can definitely tell they rushed it. If Nintendo started making these battle stages as DLC and made you pay for it, then I'd be ticked off.

Then there's the character selection which was (in my opinion) very lacking. The Koopalings and Metallic characters felt like they wasted character slots and they could've used those slots for a much better variety of characters. But in this case, I didn't expect Link or Animal Crossing to be in Mario Kart in the first place so it's acceptable. I also don't care about costumes for characters I never use like Mario and Peach. But if they start making you pay for characters that were originally in the previous mario kart games, then I would be disappointed in Nintendo.

So what I'm saying right now is Mario Kart 8 isn't a complete game to me but the DLC they're releasing is more optional than necessary so there's nothing wrong with it.
