Nice, thought about trading it in, but I held onto it. Hopefully this is a plus.

That's very quick for a user based feedback update. Normally it takes months.

Or not at all.

I think you mean the DLC is coming to XBL, not XBLA.

They won't add achievements to costume packs. Getting 20G for putting on a jacket. Don't think so! :P

SCV was rather solid and fun! What sort of DLC is headed our way, is it -only- more character customization stuff? Be nice to see more character combat sets or maybe a story mode that isn't garbage.

Custom characters are worthless to me. Unless they bring back the alternate weapon styles from 3 there's just no point. That's the DLC I want. Why do I want to make some loser that has Mitsurugi's move set? If I want to use Mitsurugi, I'll use Mitsurugi.
