Maybe that Last Remnant downloadable content will be free in the not so distant future. Square Enix recently put up two pieces of free Infinite Undiscovery DLC on the Xbox Live Marketplace. You can download “A voucher” and “B voucher” to get access to synthesis items not commonly found in stores. Granted these are only virtual items, but other publishers are charging for comparable downloadable content. On the other hand there is no sign of the status boosting DLC Square Enix offered as a pre-order bonus for Infinite Undiscovery when it came out in September.
I think Sega and Microsoft presented the best RPG DLC offers so far by providing players extra stories and dungeons to explore with Valkyria Chronicles and Blue Dragon respectively. The random dungeon creator was a leap in the right direction since it extended the game. Most RPG DLC just shaves the difficulty by giving players superior weapons, skills or even selling levels.
