Almost never, as I remember... we had the Xmas pack on original RS, Cherub Rock for RS 2014 pre purchases, and now Jimi's pack for PS4 and Xbone... any other?

I don't know if it counts, but there was that Karawan song that you got for exchanging Uplay points after buyin gRS 2014. Other than that, and the Xmas pack, nothing.

Not complaining. Actually I am very glad that Dan does those giveaways with the puzzels and raffles... people get mad at me that I am "lucky" on the raffles and quick on the puzzles, but I do think that after spending well over a thousand dollars in RS games, RS cables, and RS DLC, I am entitled to win a few DLCs here and there :p. Tomorrow is the big raffle day and I am crossing my fingers again.

I've actually gotten quite a few, usually as some kind of pre-order or other kind of promotional bonus

Hendrix "The Wind cries Mary" for PS3 (EU) - but that was accidentally and removed the next day ;)

That is really about it, or very similar stuff, like when games have promotional give aways.

However, instead of free DLC, Steam does have quite a few really good sales. Still the Rocksmith songs are seldom more than 25% off. It seems I remember maybe once a long, long time ago it seems they had a 50% off sale, and I grabbed a lot of stuff during that sale.

Lots of stuff at 50% right now.

In the early to mid-nineties, pretty much all DLC was free, then consoles got internet connections, smartphones got powerful enough to run games, and now some $70 AAA releases include micro-transactions. That being said, I would have paid for Rocksmith DLC back then.

I will have to take a look and pick up some new songs if this is so!

Yeah, but just older DLC, only ones that I have. Now that I have 500+ songs, I guess I will not keep buying everything that comes out. It used to make sense when there was 100 - 200 songs, in order to have a diversified list to practice. Now I will only buy it if I know it, like it, and want to play it. Or if I like it and it is at a huge discount.

Pretty often in the case of Team Fortress 2. :)

Isn't that a free game anyways?
