For anyone thinking about selling the game now is a very good time. I just got back from a local game store with $30 store credit for it.

The guy behind the desk said they got a lot of them coming in for trades but since they're still selling strongly they can offer good money for used copies.

Thanks for the tip. $30 is good money at this point.

Are there any more cases planned or is this it? If not I'm about 1 click away from giving it to Amazon for 25 bucks.

They should make one more homicide case, make it like a quadruple homicide or something like that. I know Homicide has the most cases in the story but no dlc based on the homicide desk! But that's just something I would like to see haha.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but all these DLC cases were just cases that were cut from the main game. So to all these people saying "These cases are too short and not epic enough!" Of course they aren't epic. They were cases cut from the main game and later released as DLC. There isn't anything that was supposed to be special about them, other than they didn't make the cut into the main game.

They probably didn't do any homicide DLC because all of the homicide cases are tied together and come together with the final homicide case, which works really well when playing through the homicide cases. It was pretty clear that someone else was committing the murders, at least to me. Having a random DLC case in between would just make it confusing and it'd be out of place.

They made a statement as wide open as the universe is big, they didn't confirm anything so ummmmmm no we don't know for a fact that there is more DLC.

It could be a standalone retail release for all we know. If they even bother going through with it.

Not great DLC, i don't know if you can buy this case as an individual purchase but 1 would be steep.

Yeah Reefer Madness did feel 'blink and you'll miss it' short, I too felt that Nicholson Electroplating would have been a far greater finale to the hopefully first batch of DLC.

Obviously as people know these are leftovers from the original game packaged as DLC, but would love to see some DLC made for an add-on release not just reworked original content that was missed.

Would love to see a GTA IV 'Ballad of Gay Tony' style stand-alone disc package of cases, or Red Dead 'Undead Nightmare Collection' style release.

Really? How exactly do we "obviously" know this?

The fact that the burglary and fraud desks were cut is something that we know.

So please, share with us how we know for a fact that the four DLC were cut from the game.

I thought they were leftovers to be honest, as it does seem they were cut, just like scenes are in movies. It certainly leans toward them being cut rather than being made as intentional DLC.

A separate desk, different character, different plot - would of been a good direction to go in. They could of used one of the other cops quite easily, and if that plot inter-twined with Phelps's investigations, then that could of been real intrigue.

No, we got leftovers.

I was disappointed a little with Reefer Madness as well, it was way too short and the achievements were so easy to get! Where's the toughness of "Bulletproof Windshield", which took me like 20 tries to get?

I thought Nicholson Electroplating was so much better...the huge explosion, that was awesome.

Is anyone still getting $30? I bought it new for only $40, so netting only $10 to play this game would be a huge bargain.

As it stands the game generally follows a one desk per disc rule with a little overlap here and there. An add-on content pack would work well if the Burglary and Bunco desks would fit on one dvd per desk. Hopefully they'll follow GTA IV and RDR and release DLC and disc sets for these desks.

It wouldn't be anywhere near that big, the size of the game comes from the city itself, as thats on disc already then they wouldn't include it, the size of a whole new desk with say 4-5 cases would be roughly the size of 5 DLC releases.

This DLC was really disappointing. I thought it was short and the story wasn't really that engaging to me. The best DLC in my opinion was "The Naked City." That one felt like a good, substantial case. This felt like a brief, filler case.
