A Genuine Hankering For Downloadable Content
Let me be honest from the get-go and confess to something I never thought I’d say in my entire lifetime; I yearn to play downloadable content.
Not just any DLC, mind you, a certain essential post-launch complimenting story to my favourite game for the year. What was the game’s name again and what hatred do I hear in the distance from what is increasingly sounding like an angry mob?

It is no surprise to those who know me, but to enlighten everyone in the universe – I’m referring to BioShock Infinite’s Burial At Sea Episode One.
I’m guilty for being a fanboy, loving anything even remotely BioShock related and I am indeed a closeted fan of postage stamps and their smells, but before I describe my favourite glue smell, let’s get back to the DLC topic.
The main reason for me writing about this is because I’ve genuinely never thought I’d be looking forward to any downloadable content released or yet to be released in the foreseeable future. This is honestly a first for me and I’m feeling that of a craving hypocrite for saying this, because I’ve said to quite a few people that DLC is not necessary to enjoy the main game and while this is true in most cases – I never had the desperate urge to play something that is more than capable to compliment the existing story. I even went as far as to saying that BioShock Infinite’s story don’t need any extra elaboration and it is engraved in stone by the post-it note-loving beetle in my cranium – in other words, the story is perfect as it is with everything intertwined to create a narrative that is confusing at first yet wholly understandable if enough thought is put into it.
Yet, here I am to ramble about the thirst for DLC I currently possess and I admit to the hypocritical nature in my saying this. It is Rapture with Infinite’s gameplay – what is not to love?
I’ll leave you with Sander Cohen’s quote from the launch trailer: “Beauty and pain. They can be no more separated than birth and blood.” (A trailer I watched more than that of a sane mind.)
