A downloadable add-on just released for "Firestorm", published by Pipedream Games, comes with a surprise. The video game is reported to "still be in production". In order to access the DLC, gamers have to own the actual game.
"I downloaded this thing, gripes gamer BadS35, "but since the game hasn't even come out, I couldn't play it!"
Haskell Wexler, head of Pipedream, remains unfazed by the critical response. "Doesn't it get you excited to actually play the game when it comes out?" asks Mr. Wexler to gamers. "I believe this move increases the anticipation for 'Firestorm'."
BadS35 posed this question to Mr. Wexler - "What if it sucks?"
In related news, the sequel to Bioshock Infinite, due 2012, is in development.
