Look, we're not gonna tell you how to spend your hard-earned money. If you want to spend two actual dollars enabling your Killzone: Shadow Fall character to fart -- yes, that kind of fart -- and "plank" (this) on PlayStation 4, go for it. But allow us this moment of plea: please don't. Here's the description of what your $2 gets you:

"It's all fun and games until someone loses a game. (Or so they say). Show your fallen enemies, not everything need [sic] be taken seriously. This pack contains Fart, Planking and Comedy spotlight moves."

One part of us wants to know what "Comedy spotlight moves" could possibly be given that the highly comedic farting and planking verbs have already been used.

We're not gonna make the guilt plea ("there are children starving all over the world"), and we're not gonna appeal to your financial sense (it's just two bucks, right?). Your common sense, however, is fair game. The long and short is this: forking over any cash for this kind of junk DLC sends the wrong message to both the game's developer (Guerrilla Games) and its publisher (Sony). We're not saying it isn't funny -- it very well may be! -- but we are saying you shouldn't have to pay for it. It is indeed optional, yes, which is exactly why we suggest you optionally choose to skip this. Vote with your dollars, y'all! Or end up like the angry lady above.
