      haha ya, seeing the Fast and Furious pack is free is the only pleasant thing for wallets at this point.

      And season passes are looking to be the way forward these days with most games set for a lot of DLC or episodes.

        I agree. I go the seasons pass for Game of Thrones, Tales From the Borderlands and Life is Strange.

        You could say I am an adventure nut.
