Yes, someone out there actually learned you can earn more money by not C&D'ing every third party project that pops up. Which is hilarious coming from GW.

They realize the ripoff franchise that has stolen their PC light for years is completely dead now and are swooping in for the purge.

Whoops, correction, Total War: Warhammer was just released this year, May of 2016, not 2015. The game itself looks interesting, but holy crap what are they even thinking with their DLC? "Blood for the Blood God" is $3 and, get this, adds blood sprites to the game. ... ... ...

Relic had a lasting impression.

TW:W's developer is Creative Assembly and its publisher is Sega. What do you mean about Relic Entertainment? Did they do something similar?

Relic used to develop warhammer fantasy and 40k before the company was sold to sega or something of that nature

They've had blood DLC since Shogun 2, you're about 5 years late.

Relic is notorious for their asinine DLC in Dawn of War.

Relic was under THQ, then THQ went out of business and Sega picked up the studio. Relic is the developer of Dawn of War 3, so as far as 40k goes they're still in the game.

Well shit, that just makes it all the worse. It's not a one-time mistake, like Horse Armor, but a part of their continued goddamn market strategy. I feel queasy.

I'm only aware of expansions like Soulstorm, Dark Crusade, and Winter Assault that added new races and campaigns. For DoW 2 it was Chaos Rising and Retribution, again adding new races and such.

Looking at the Retirbution page in Steam, I see there's $85 of DLC, most of which is Last Stand digital item bullshit, some Last Stand commanders (heroes for a side mode), and a couple skin packs. Oh, and what do we have here, "Ridiculously Bloody Blood Pack". ... ... ... Yeah, it's a $2 increase to the size of blood splats. *facepalm* The fact that this is a thing is making me very sad today.

Welcome to America, where everything is "art" so tumblr will justify us selling skins and blood and we just package up our middleware for their mindless consumption.

CoH2 is also DLC hell and P2W.

It's kind of a smart business move when looked at in isolation. They were originally worried about the M ESRB rating hurting sales of Shogun 2 so they released the blood pack DLC since it won't impact that rating as long as it's behind a paywall. At least the blood pack DLCs are generally well done as opposed to the DoW2 one.

At this rate, they are going to release the good-game-DLC soon. Definitely going to drop 5$ for that.

Nah, that's broken up behind three pre-release "love story" DLC at $60 a pop.
