All DLC is on the disc, and there have been additions like replay theatre, and, most importantly, character and gameplay balancing tweaks.

I remember trying the first edition you sent me, and I got my ass kicked over-and-over again by the computer, usually in less than a minute. Didn't play again after that.

That I sent you? I thought you bought it yourself. And I know what you mean about the computer. You remember how back in the SF2 days people complained that the computer cheated? It was confirmed that the computer actually reads your button presses and counters before your inputs can be completed.

I bought it for online play anyway, and it's really good when I can find a match that doesn't stutter.

Here's me playing online. I'm Vega against a pretty good Chun-li.

Went to buy RE6, and the manager lady said they had a copy of the special edition that had been pre-ordered, but not picked up. Said I could have it for ten extra bucks, so I got it for the DLC. It had all three of the maps that were spread out across several stores in the US. Was also supposed to come with a messenger bag. They didn't give it to me, but I didn't care, because I would never use it.

Got home and the DLC redemption codes weren't in the box.

Went back and told her I didn't get the codes. She said, "You only get them if you pre-order." I said, "So I paid ten extra bucks for a cardboard slipcase then?" I got my codes.

Game isn't that great. Story sucks. Gameplay is fun, but in no way is it RE anymore. RE in name only.

One Halloween night, at a party held at an East Texas ranch house, a local seamstress named Chintana finds herself thrown into the role of chaperone for five rambunctious orphans. Not surprisingly, the children's energies prove barely containable, even with promises of cake and a storyteller.

The storyteller, however, is not what anyone expects.

Looming and cloaked in dark, he entertains the orphans with a tale twisted out of vengeance and violence. He does not come empty-handed, either. At their feet he sets a long, narrow box sealed with five latches.

"I am a bad man with a very black heart," he warns them. "And it was only that badness and blackness which forced me to seek out what I have carried now for many years and brought this night for you."

An unsettling thing to say to anyone, especially to children. But as Chintana soon discovers, this is just the beginning. Her concerns only mount as the storyteller offers more and more menacing details about what consequences lie hidden within that long, narrow box.

To make matters worse, the orphans, one by one, lean forward and lift the latches...

So it's a children's novel, or?

Nah. It's like if you sat some children and storyteller thing is more along the line of sitting five children down and telling them a story that you probably shouldn't tell a child.

It's like they never left:

Which is kind of surprising; you'd think that after an almost 20 year absence they'd update their sound a little. Still, a solid value.

Isn't that just a repacking with some new songs?

Any good? I know that as a whole the previous album did not deliver on the promise of the first few singles.
