Yea, Burnout Revenge, LotR Battle For Middle Earth and Battlefield Modern Combat are 3 of the oldest EA games that still have servers active so I would not be surprised if those were next.

From what I can recall, Burnout is not very hard, but it is time consuming. there is an achievement where you need 5 or 6 people as well.

The leaderboards no longer update for LotR BFME so that makes some of the leaderboards specific achievements difficult to get unless you know someone who is ranked in the game. Other than that, the online are pretty easy and can be boosted with one other person.

The servers for Battlefield MC are a nightmare. There are always games being played, but for the most part it is just people griefing and team killing. Also certain users know how to crash servers so even if you do qualify to get achievements in the current game,the achievement will not pop until the next game is loading, so if the game crashes you do not get credit. Also party chat is hit or miss and will often kick you out of games so it makes it difficult to coordinate some of the achievements. Private chat does work though. Finally there is a 500 games played achievement which will take 40-50 hours even if you are doing 1v1 boosting. This one is not for the faint of heart.

Let's go Pens!

We need a list of XBOX titles that have free DLC like KOTOR so we can get it before it's too late .

So today is the last day to play original xbox games on live (or is it tommrow?) I read a article on vgchartz that if you play Halo 2 before the servers shutdown they will give u a treat in halo reach. Whatever that's supposed to mean.

I wouldn't be surprised if they went down for good around when they usually put up XBL marketplace content. I'd say if you want to play I would play today.

Any other info on what you get if you play Halo 2? I might have to play a couple games tonight for old time's sake.

Ha, I always envision some nightmare scenario where Rock Band suddenly has some secret contract expire and suddenly all DLC is no longer playable. Gamer apocalypse.

Need to get Yavin Station for KOTOR, Phantom Dust's DLC and maybe one last round of Crimson Skies in today. Sigh. Being able to have more than 100 friends is still a fucking shitty trade for shutting down all these games, so I hope they have more in mind for XBL than just that.

The vast majority of XBox 1 DLC has always been free. I believe some Project Gotham 2 content costs money and still does even now, but that's about it.

Yes, definitely. You never know. If you get the urge to play via XBConnect or something, you're going to want that DLC. It's not like they're worth anything sealed anyway.

---------

Just finished up a few minutes ago, played some Halo 2 for a while, then played some Crimson Skies. Had a pretty decent round after two or three matches, and then shut it down. In melodramatic terms, this is definitely the end of an era.

And holy crap is the XBox quiet compared to the 360.

Yea most is free but some games had paid DLC. They didn't drop the price on anything for the shutdown so if you really want something you have to ante up tonight.

From my standpoint I haven't seen any DLC on the OG xbox worth paying for.

If you are short of time its probably best to just get the single player stuff and the Halo 2 MP maps. The content for the 3 splinter cell games are good to pickup as well.

Check the other thread for a decent list of content. LINK

Its sad to see that you are being forced to buy and play Xbox 360 games online. No more simple Xbox 1 games online anymore, but of course most people left that console/the online of said console loooong ago.

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

Microsoft has two options with the money they are saving
1-Keep it as profit
2-Use it to give us more stuff

Which one do you think they will do?
Honestly, I really doubt they are gonna save THAT much money by taking all this down.

Yea, no more Tiger 07 or 08 in a few weeks. Here are the achievements that will not be obtainable after May 11th for the OP.

Tiger Woods 07
High Roller - 15 - Make 25 online wagers
Getting the Hang of it - 15 - Win 5 online matches
Play in 5 online Tournaments - 20 - This is already glitched and unachievable

Tiger Woods 08
Anchor Man - 10 - Create and Play a 4-player Online Match (you must host to get this)
Reality Star - 35 - Play and beat a challenge in each of the Free Style, Long Drive, 9 and 18 Hole Showdown channels
Zapper - 10 - Post in each of the Free Style, Long Drive, 9 and 18 Hole Showdown channels
EA SPORTS GamerNet 1000 - 35 - Obtain 1000 producer points on EA Sports GamerNet
EA SPORTS GamerNet 5000 - 75 - Obtain 5000 producer points on EA Sports GamerNet

Mosts of these are pretty easy, but the 5000 producer points will take a while. I actually have some clips up so if others could bring them up and fail them that would help out. I'd be happy to do the same for other perople's clips. Just let me know that you did. Note, you do not even have to play the challenges, just bring them up, once it loads hit 'X' to start the challenge, then hit start and quit out. Takes 10-20 seconds.

Is it dead yet or are they still refusing to tell people when it's ending? Seemed like a disrespectful way to have it go out since a number of people made the time to play on Wednesday night to see the end of Xbox Live only to be told that it's happening at some random time they won't reveal.

They took it down around 7pm EST last Thursday. They never gave an exact time, just a bunch of random tweets and posts from major nelson and the xbox live operations team saying they would "flip the switch" at some point.

Not sure why they didn't just announce the time to make it easy on everyone. Guess it doesn't matter now anyways.

Just a bump for any subscribers. Thanks to GLOCKGLOCK for pointing this one out. Info also in his awesome achievement thread. I'll be looking to boost this one even though the max attainable is 705 apparently. Had to post quick will add more later.

See post #94 for info.
