Even though I rarely, if ever, buy Games on Demand all the talk about Online Passes being included reminded me of one weird example. Maybe this is what's confusing people, although it's probably obscure enough that it isn't.

I used to be really big into BFBC2 and considered buying the Games on Demand version also when it was on sale for 800 MSP a while back. I already had the VIP Pass from the retail version of the game but noticed this disclaimer on the description: "VIP Access is not included with Games on Demand purchase."

How stupid is that? I have to admit that did cloud my thinking a bit as to how Online Passes worked for digital retail titles. I'm glad to hear that it's the exception rather than the rule. Thanks, EA.

for those that dont know what i'm talking about, this is a list for people that would be up for CAG Scott Pilgrim online game/s when the add-on comes out this week.

I never had any problems with that cheev, but I heard about it and I never could find out the reason of what can possibly cause it.

Im one of the unfortunate victims of it. I spent a couple hours calling down the strikers with each characte with no dice. There is a workaround to get another shot at unlocking it, but that definitely takes way more time than it's worth just for 30 gamerscore.

Feel free to throw me on that list for some online SP dude.

If EA can squeeze whatever money is left out of KoA you best believe they will squeeze every last penny haha.


It's not about EA making money, it's what they're legally allowed to do. The game is officially out of print.

You can feel a little better in that you can play online w/o an online pass in that game, you just lose 1 pack of 4 maps and the ability to play all the modes on each map (some combinations are exclusive to the online pass.)

Yeah, so I looked this whole subject up and it seems a very few GoD titles do indeed not include online passes, but it's a very select few.

If you only count games that I haven't played, my 360 backlog is over 200 physical titles alone. If I got bored enough, I would compare my CAG collection list with my XBLA achievement list to get a more accurate number ...

I don't have PC games, Vita games, most PSP games, free PS+ games or any purchased PSN games on there yet. That's where it will start getting really ugly.

why do you keep buying games when you haven't played the ones you own?

Bought Mega man 9 and 10. I was ready to pay original price for them, so that little discount is still good. I'm a sucker for tough platformers. :)

Grabbed DeathSpank: ToV as well. Didn't know if was good idea to jump on that without having played first game, but don't feel like purchasing all of them and liked the trial version of ToV more.

My backlog is pretty much gone with 360 titles, but I know a lot of people who are in that situation with "classic" games like NES, SNES etc. It's why I only bought a 3DS and 360 this time around and why I only plan on buying just the next xbox come next generation.

I'm guilty of the same thing. :-( I guess backlogs like this happen because it's easy to drop $5-$15 on a video game to play "later", the hard part is finding the time "later" with work, family, responsibilities, etc.

We want to play the games, it's just tough finding the time to play them.

Has anyone played the KoA DLC that can recommend it one way or another? I'm playing that game now and pretty close to the end (85 hours in). It's been a fun game but I'm getting really burned out on fetch quests at this point and I'm looking forward to moving on to something else. But if the DLC isn't too long then it'd be nice to have played the complete version of the game. I don't know how long the DLC will still be available or if it will ever go on sale again so I feel like this is the time to get it or not. Then again, I only paid like $12 for the game itself so dropping another $10 for just the DLC doesn't seem super worth it unless its fun.

I grabbed both DLCs without ever playing the game because I've heard good things...$12 is a steal on the game! After buying the DLC, I've been looking around and can't seem to find it for lower than $25 (and that's used), 5 over my buying price. At least I can sit and wait because i have the DLC now...I really expected this to be around the $20-30 range by now for a new copy.

Agreed. They are really fun. Dead Kel was better for me personally but I enjoyed them both as well as the standard game.

Just got a message on my XBL account that I got a free month of Gold for the whole Cloud debacle. Funny thing is I didn't even know I was effected and just use it as a means to store random save files of games I enjoyed, but will probably not revisit. Also my saves are still on there looking fine and dandy.

i'm thinking i'd set different dates/times and let people from the list choose which group, hopefully it will work out and we'll get 4 people in each group at dates/times that work.

for those that don't know what i'm talking about, this is a list for people that would be up for CAG Scott Pilgrim online game/s when the add-on comes out this week.

I'm hoping that was a typo for your sake, but doubt it lol 3 digit backlog?! Holy smokes! I keep mine around 6-7 and freak out when it hits 10...I can't imagine having a backlog that huge.



I just KNEW this guy had to be a relatively fresh-face here on CAG, LOL.


My contribution to the actual backlog talk is that, of the games I hope to someday "play until its dead to me" I'm looking at somewhere around 50--give or take a dozen--and that's physical, current-gen only; when I think of my backlog, this is the brunt of what I consider to count. I probably have at least two dozen or so XBL/PSN/Indie titles that I consider "hoping to finish", but I rarely consider any of these for my official count. And I don't count any older gen games since we have no room in the current apartment to setup any of the old systems, otherwise I could possibly see my backlog just-barely hitting the triple digits.

From the people that have chimed-in so far, I feel somewhere in the middle, almost bordering on hoarding but not as bad as some. That's a pretty good feeling to walk away from this with I think. 8-)

Ugh, even with this sale, the SFxT DLC ends up costing $42, and that's not including any of the gems.. Just don't think it's in the budget this week since I have to buy my books for this semester. Do you think they'll put these DLCs on sale again? (Seeing as they've never put SFIV DLC on sale and the MvC3 stuff has only been on sale once, I'm guessing that's a no) I know Capcom isn't allowed to release another version of this game so a Super Street Fighter x Tekken is out of the question, I think.

That plus the outrage over the whole "everything's on the disk anyways" fiasco (as well as the ridiculous amount of money-milking DLC from this game) might be enough to drive me to pass and/or use less scrupulous methods.

Also, sign me up for that Scott Pilgrim Online Session, I have all of the other 15 achievements and all my characters (including Knives) at max stats/level/techniquest so I gotta do the same with Wallace.

I'm going to say no for 360 as Capcom rarely discounts anything but the downloadable fighters on 360. Discounts are more frequent for their fighting game costumes on PSN.
