I would hold out onto calling the DLCs overpriced until I play it. Through my experiences, I'd say the DLCs would be extremely small scaled and definitely not as people expect, but I always hold my hopes for surprises.
I love the idea of having custom robot companions and giving them voices, but I'd love even more if they come up with some mind blowing ideas and new robots (or makeshift robots,custom robots/etc).

I'm glad they finally said roughly when they're releasing the creation kit but this also makes me really mad. We've waited now nearly 4 months and we're going to wait nearly 6 months before getting it. Thats messed up on so many levels.

It's tricky; it almost seems like they're going back to the Oblivion style of DLC, very small addons that don't really add much, along with one or two 'big' ones - I'll be intrigued to see what it brings to the table that modders can't.
The new 'expansion' pack DLC however, I'm always excited about! Hoping it'll be like Point Lookout in tone.
While I do like the announcements for the DLC, the Mechanist one I'm definitely a bit worried about. Like the others have said, they have the bar set pretty high just from mods (Robot Home Defense, for example, is superbly done).
I trust Bethesda to make a high quality product, but I'm hoping for something that will set it apart from just any regular mod with some extra gloss on.

personally I think the DLC are great love the stuff I see there a lot of +. no matter how bad this DLC will be its still give a new options and that's will make creating mods a lot easier and about the prices well you still have a time too buy a season pass cuz on march 1 its will cost 50 bucks I think don't really remember so that's mean that going to be a lot of DLC's for the game more then Skyrim's 100%
The build a robot one and the actual gameplay story one (forgot name...something with Docks i believe) are the only one's that have my interests. If Wasteland Workshop adds more items to settlements it might be frowned upon because there's already 3 giant mods adding tons of stuff from the game....The Beta Bethesda released a few days ago included some signs being added for settlements.....probably a hint?
Since Oblivion, with Shivering Isles, Bethesda has always been pretty solid about delivering DLC at the stated price.
This is the first time I've actually bought a season pass because of their reputation.
For the benefit of the doubt though, I wonder how much of it will turn out to be cut content? Take for example the combat zone, cut dialogue points to it being much more interactive than a quick encounter with raiders. Then there is the harpoon gun, washed up sea creatures, and what appears to be a work-in-progress underwater zone. I would be a bit disappointed if one of the paid DLCs is only a completion of what was likely a goal upon release.
Overall though the new trailer looks great for the automotran, so I'm going to be optimistic. =)
