Asking the people who actually played Dishonored...are the achievements hard to get? The DLC has some high ratios, wanted to buy the game at some point so debating to get the dlc now...


I'm not an achievement hunter at all. But I can tell you that I played through the game twice and have under 400 gamerscore on it I think. So you're not really going to get it without trying and just playing through.

I'm not sure what you meant, since you may or may not have left off the comma after the "No".
The 800 MSP code from Amazon is region Free. The 400 MSP code is not.


Hmm strange i bought a 400 MSP code from amazon.com last week and i could redeem him with no problems on my german account .



I bought 400msp from GS and Amazon on March 11th. Neither were region-free.

I do think that you can get 400msp codes for a couple of regions like US,JP,UK on amazon. But they do not work on every region. I learned this the hard way

They don't HAVE to have an April 1st sale. You're not entitled to that whatsoever.


Except that they do, so he is. Entitlement is a silly en vogue political word right not to encourage people to think they don't deserve to be treated a certain way. If the company we pay money to decides to promote something and it's a disappointment then we are allowed to express our disappointment.

Without that we'd not have a lot of things in retail and business that people encouraged to come about with their vocal and financial protest. You are not "entitled" to have a good experience with what you purchase or support with your money, it's a basic principle of commerce.

When you allow businesses to skate by and refer to others voicing their disapproval as acting entitled, you play right into the hands of businesses trying to give you the least they can for the highest price possible.

I assume you mean TA ratio? Keep in mind they did just do recalculation on DLC ratios over there. So almost all of them are a little inflated.

So the 800 MSP works 100% on my european xbl account? I may get one of those since they're ~8€ and on xbl i should pay 6€ for 500 msp :s

The Playstation sales have me spoiled because I always look at this Xbox sales as a joke. Midnight Club complete for $10 and the Dishonored DLC is a good price though.

Glad that I read OP because I thought the GOD of Midnight Club LA didn't come with the DLC and was about to buy some, eek.

(Fallout 3 DLC is a awesome price to but I imagine anyone who's really into the game probably already owns it)

Except... Tsel is saying, I believe, that MS didn't have to host a special 1-day sale just because it's April 1st to begin with. Prior to promoting that they were going to have a sale, what precedent is your money holding them to that they would need to have this sale in the first place exactly...? There isn't one.

And on the same note, if we didn't have the leaked sales page prior to this 1-day sale itself, MS would be more than keeping up their side of things by hosting a sale consisting of simply the aforementioned "horse armor" dlc, it would still have been a sale in some form.

In more-relevant news, this Kotaku article pretty much sold me on the Dunwall Trials dlc, even though I haven't touched my Black Friday Sale Dishonored yet.

I'd try the base game first, to see if the gameplay appeals to you. Personally, I found the game pretty dull and frustrating, but I know some people love it.

I have not tried it myself, but I know of at least half a dozen people on this board that bought 800 msp codes and had no issues using them on Hungarian accounts. I've yet to hear of a single person encountering any problems. Nothing is 100% guaranteed, but it seems very unlikely you'll have any issues.

Well said. Everyone has their own "entitlement threshold" as to when they think their getting their fair shake. In regards to video games, too far to one direction makes them look like white knights for their particular console of choice, and too far the other direction makes them look unreasonably difficult to please.

With the assassins creed season pass, is this a season pass that includes all dlc or just some of it?
Also, would you recommend someone that does not have the game and will probably not get and play it for a while yet to get, or should i wait for dlc to come cheaper?


It includes all of the DLC, but unless you're going to get the game in a month or two, I'd wait until this goes on sale again.

I'm waiting for GOTY version. Holding out faint, stupid hope for port to next gen consoles too.


Great Skyrim DLC sale but still not a bad idea at all to wait, for those who can. I mean, I bought the Collector's Edition Skyrim for Xbox 360, bought all the DLC thus far and will still get the GOTY too, when it inevitably comes out. I love the game that much.

Ha, I was so thinking the same thing for next gen. I would go crazy for ultra settings Skyrim on a console, perhaps they will get community mods to work on consoles somehow.

I'd try the base game first, to see if the gameplay appeals to you. Personally, I found the game pretty dull and frustrating, but I know some people love it.

Someone let me borrow the complete edition or whatever it's called. Couldn't finish it, I didn't like the era. It's a good game, just certainly some people like myself find it lacking.

It includes all of the DLC, but unless you're going to get the game in a month or two, I'd wait until this goes on sale again.


Plus there is the final episode for the G.Washington DLC coming out this month. But yeah, you could wait. For those who been waiting and own it or have the game for free like me find it hard to resist with good reason.

It's generally a rule of thumb to not worry about the billion separate pieces of pre-order DLC for the AC series because it will inevitably be released as part of a larger DLC at a later date: see Bonfire of the Vanities & Secret Locations for AC2, Lost Archive for AC: Revolutions & Hidden Secrets Pack for AC3.

I don't know if the WFC has an active multiplayer community still. Good question, I actually had a good time with the online demo. Someone please let us know.

If I'm correct in thinking WFC is the first Transformers game, it was dead pretty much a month after it launched. Sure, you can probably find a few people playing it, but don't expect to be able to jump into a game like you would Halo or COD. A shame too, because the multiplayer is actually pretty fun. I might be confusing WFC with FOC though, so forgive me if I'm wrong.
