If I was only going to get one of the FF XIII-2 dlc packs, which one is the best of the group?

My gut instinct is to buy the Lightning dlc pack since she's the star of the next game, unless folks here tell me differently?


The most essential DLC for the game is the Requiem of the Goddess Lightning DLC. It contains more of and ending to the game/fills in some blanks. Plus the Commando Lighting party member you get from this DLC just destroys everything. Especially if you infuse her with the right monsters. I am not sure if you can accidentally play this before you beat the game, but it shouldn't be played until after.

Snow is a great Sentinel to have on your team and it also has another capture-able monster. But it is pretty short.

The Sahz DLC is pretty dumb. Just some gambling texas hold em stuff and once you beat that he joins your party. Only get this if you really want him as your Synergist.

Lightning & Amodar is just a battle, but works because you can actually use them for most of the game before its beaten. Lightning is the first or second best Ravager in the game depending on what you're looking for. I kind of preferred to have humans in my party as I got tired of the monsters but I ended up with Cloudburst as my main Ravager because his Feral Link is awesome.

I'd say if you plan to get all the achievements and do all the post game content Requiem Lightning and Snow made some of the harder battles a lot easier. Although be prepared to do a little farming to get all the stuff to level them up, but it wasn't too bad imo.

If you want to play the game and just be done with it I'd at least get the Requiem DLC. It's cheap enough and adds some more ending. But be prepared for the repetitive nature of that DLC.

I just updated the op with more details on the Dance Central 2 DLC sale. I added in references to Dance Packs where applicable so it should be more helpful to determine which songs can be bought in which dance pack.

I spent wayyyyyyyy too much on RB DLC and kind of don't want to buy anymore points but I can't pass on those Pinball tables.

I'm tempted to buy some DC tracks but my wallet is hurting so much. I think I have all the tracks from DC1 and haven't really played the game much so I might pass or pick and choose a few.

Also, I bit on Crysis for 1200 MSP before so I could be upset but in rare form I played it immediately. It's a fairly easy 1000 GS. Since I got Crysis 2 for sale for $10 I don't feel bad and plan on playing that before Crysis 3 releases.

For once I want Microsoft to stop with the sales. I need to recover before their holiday sales.

I just checked out the Dance Central packs and it looks like Marathon Pack 01 and 02 should cover Dance Pack 01 to 07 which were released before Dance Central 2. You'll have to buy Dance Pack 08 to 11 to be caught up before DC3 releases. I haven't looked at the individual artist packs but it looks like the songs are NOT included in other packs.

Anyone think FFXIII-2 will get a "Complete" edition with all that DLC? or should I just buy the Story DLC and the lightning battle now? Would maybe get the Ezio costume as well.

Awwww Fuck, and just when I've been OCD'ing on the edits for 3 hours while you injected your content. I wish wiki's on this had "slightly" better source control to let you "lock" a post for 30 min. :-(

OK, found your excellent edits in the history, and merged them back into my exhaustive content edit. :)

I just checked out the Dance Central packs and it looks like Marathon Pack 01 and 02 should cover Dance Pack 01 to 07 which were released before Dance Central 2. You'll have to buy Dance Pack 08 to 11 to be caught up before DC3 releases. I haven't looked at the individual artist packs but it looks like the songs are NOT included in other packs.


Digging back through ancient history, here's where Vamn resolved the "Marathon Pack" duplicity conundrum ...

OK, Marathon 1 contains all of Packs 1-4 EXCEPT "We Run This"-Missy Elliott (from Dance Pack 1), "Temperature"-Sean Paul (from Dance Pack 3), and "Le Freak"-Chic (from Dance Pack 4) ... It also contains "I Gotta Feeling"-The Black Eyed Peas which is not in any of the Track Packs.


The short answer is that Marathon Packs 1 & 2 will cover Dance Packs 1 - 7, and all those are DC1-compatible. If you get MP1 & MP2, you'll only miss 3 songs, but MP2 also contains an extra single. And yes, Dance Packs 8 - 11 are DC2/DC3-only.

And with that, I'll retire for the night by saying ...

Well you already said it...it is random lol and I'm pretty sure those should be the 400 MSP promo points but something went wrong (wish I would have 1600 msp added like some others lol)

Did they ever respond that you didn't get your 240 Points? And did you really spend 1600 MSP or more? Some guys just did 800 and it showed up as pending...guess those guys didn't get their points maybe?)

I got 110msp, I think the 100 is for Rewards Surveys, but the 10msp, I can't account for, the ESPN app I had over 10hrs, so am guessing that will be deposited next month since there is at least another full saturday of NCAA football they can count.

Hmm in this case it maybe 300 from 400 points from rewards I got today they just haven't switched from pending to awarded...meh...

Sooooo I'm still waiting for the 400 MSP SoA Promo Points lol (and 100 MSP next month from rewards)

I just bought Crysis for $10.

It's too bad this is download only. I don't have the 4 gigs for this game. I just deleted a bunch of other stuff and typed what I deleted into an excel spreadsheet.

I hate to rehash the whole Crysis conversation that took place in this thread when the game first hit the marketplace, but as someone who didn't finish Crysis 2 because he lost interest, is the first game going to be worth my time and money? I also have a backlog of 4-5 other shooters (in first and third person) vying for my attention.

I played about 50% of the way through the game yesterday and if you lost interest in number 2 you probably will lose interest in 1 also. Most of the game seems to boil down to die over and over and over again if you try to fight head on or become extremely bored going into stealth, sprinting to next rock, go prone to recharge, rinse and repeat over and over again.

My 2 cents. Extremely repetitive game play and extremely repetitive environments=bored since 5 minutes after I started playing.

It's hard to not recommend a full retail $10 game but having actually played some of it now, I wouldn't buy it again.

Thanks, and yes it's been very tedious. I mean, it's just $3, but I'd still like it since it's rightfully owed to me.

I'm also still missing the 240 for the August promo...

Well that's one opinion. I beat the game on PC when it came out years ago and loved it. I'm too lazy to pc game these days so I am hankering to play through this. In my mind Crysis' game model was somewhat of a grown up Halo puzzle combat. Sure the stealth wasn't that great and the shooting not as tight but I appreciated the more mature feel to everything.

About the only thing I can see holding this game back is the checkpointing. The controller scheme helps you swap abilities much more quickly than in the PC version if it's anything like how it was handled in Crysis 2

I kind of doubt it. Squenix hasn't really done that with anything else, though only western developed games they published really have had DLC so far. Just buy what you want now.

I might have bought a costume if this sale was a couple weeks ago but I've since 100%ed the main game so I'm not going to bother. Glad Serah at least has that one free outfit or I would have bought one full price since her default is terrible. For this sale I only bought the Lightning story DLC as everything else is pointless with a completed game.

You'll have to buy Dance Pack 08 to 11 to be caught up before DC3 releases. I haven't looked at the individual artist packs but it looks like the songs are NOT included in other packs.

You also have to get LMFAO - "Party Rock Anthem" if you want to get all the songs since that isn't in any pack. And if you're getting only the Marathon Packs those are missing Sean Paul - "Temperature", Missy Elliot - "We Run This" and Chic - "Le Freak" in terms of DC1 DLC.
