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.


The DLC is pretty good. I'd definitely recommend both of them for $5 if you like the game.


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


Just beware on Dead Kel that once you start it, you can't leave the island it takes place on until you beat the DLC main campaign as you're stranded on the island.

I guess that takes me out of it too. $5 is as much as I paid for the base game. I bit too pricey for me, especially given that the SP stuff seems to go on sale frequently enough I think I can get this on the cheap within the year.

On the subject of backlogs: I am truly confident that I will pass away before I even bother trying every game I own, given that I've piled on deal after deal since this site cursed my existence in 2004. :lol: Though the game spending has slowed down over the last 12-15 months, to the potential dismay of whoever inherits my mess.

I was holding out hope the MM9/10 discounts would either be "corrected" or bitched about enough to force another cut; looks like I'm SOL.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

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-)


i would say more than 10 in the backlog is hoarding, unless you were given a lot of games for christmas

Xbox live reward for February is confirmed as what was said before

"Earn 200 in February, get 200 Microsoft Points when you rent or buy five HD Movies, seven HD TV Shows, or one TV Season Pass on Xbox Video!"

No more waiting for a good reward, guess its time to get me a thong of virtue.

On a side note, is ReddJoey OK? Just saw that it said remember him on the main post?

I don't remember the full details, but supposedly he was visiting a local zoo, a gorilla escaped and just started going ape shit on everything. Caught up in the incident, Joey got in the gorilla's way and practically got mauled. It was pretty gruesome.

So I bought Shank and after hearing all these great things about it I was really excited to play it, but I must say I'm pretty disappointed with it. It's not a bad game. It's just pretty repetitive, the enemys and combat never really change throughout the entire game, and the game itself is very short (easily beat it in 2.5 hours). Definitely wish I would have put the 400msp towards Deathspank instead.

So I think it's safe to say that new 400 price of the SP DLC will most likely kill our chances of having some CAG online matches. :p

How often does Shank and Deathspank go on sale? My points are limited at the moment and I don't want to kick myself for spending them too early if something better ( or an Xbox exclusive) is coming soon.

over 200? how does this happen?

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


Mental illness! Also, when did my wife join CAG? :D

My gaming appetite is bigger than my gaming stomach. Between keeping up with gaming news and this site, I will eventually get any game I think I would enjoy once it gets cheap enough, regardless of the backlog problem. I am under the delusion that I'll have time to play these some day. Despite being in the office for ~50 hours a week. And despite having a wife, 18 month old son and 2 cats that all crave my attention (and get it before I play video games). And despite being a homeowner with all the problems and projects that entails ('homo' for short).

It doesn't help that the games I do get around to playing tend to be timesinks. I've put over 200 hours into the Mass Effect series. I've prioritized multi-player games too. I try to get to those while they still have active communities.

Disappointed in 400 pts for Scott Pilgrim online, considering I don't know if any of my friends will pay for that and/or keep playing.

I tried the demo for Shank when it first came out and was underwhelmed. I'm pleased to hear the Shank 2 is a big improvement, and I'll try both demos again now that they're only 400 pts.

Besides, Klei did such an amazing job with Mark of the Ninja, I wouldn't mind throwing them more money.

I just got kind of a weird acceptance into the Battleblock Theater beta. Says I can invite up to 2 friends to also join in with me in the beta. My guess is that this is just to try and increase the amount of people they get in the beta, since registrations for it are still open. Anyone else get something like this?


I got the email too. My 2nd friend registered today so I need to send off the email with their info to Behemoth to get them in.

On the subject of backlogs mine is definitely in the triple digits. My Steam account alone has over 200 games and I haven't touched most of them. Since it's digital I try not to count it against me or my XBLA (about 230) or PSN (less than 20) collections. I've actually been avoiding Steam for the most part because of that. I usually buy older games on there though.

I've got a bookshelf full of 360 games. I've played a good deal of them and own a bunch of franchises like Rock Band, Guitar Hero (won a bunch on Twitter), Mass Effect, Bioshock, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, etc.

I don't plan on joining the next generation of consoles for a few years if possible so that's how I'm planning on mopping up these games. All this talk convinced me to pass on KoA lol. I remember I don't want to dedicate another 100+ hours on a new RPG that will never get a sequel.

After hitting 100K GS last month I decided to work on the backlog. Right now I'm playing Dead Island GOTY editions and Top Spin 2 haha. The only new game I plan on buying this year so far is Bioshock Infinite. Most other new games I can wait to hit < $20 later. I think part of the problem is this is the first console cycle I've followed since the beginning and had money to buy games for. For perspective I usually keep all my money for bills/food and the rest is for savings/games/movies/books/entertainment. If I go out it's usually for dinner and a movie occasionally. I don't have children and don't really waste money beyond home entertainment. Basically, I work and game or watch movies. I'm not a TV show addict like the average person so I have time to play.

I know the name of the website but c'mon. It's only $5. If the dlc were to go on sale a couple of months down the road it will most likely cost 240 or $3. Is a $2 savings that big of a deal for this game. I can understand if you have other games to play, but if you really enjoyed this one why not get it day 1, I know I will. Between Dead Space 3, the new black ops 2 zombie map, and this I'll be busy playing those 3 things next week.

Secondly, really tempted to get the Dragon Age 2 DLC. It's been in my backlog for a while and I'm kinda in the mood for it. Is it worth spending 15 bucks since I only paid like 9 for the actual game? @_@

Legacy & Mark were better than most of the quests in the game so I would say yes. Just be at least in Chapter 2 before you start them though.

Legacy is a completely new outdoor/indoor/underground area where you discover why a group of Carta dwarves has been out for you & your family's blood, literally.

The events of the past that started this go back to what your father did for the Grey Wardens just before your birth. Contains new weapons and even a secret boss.
