FYI. IGN gave the Arkham City DLC a 9 but said it adds about 2 hours of gameplay. So you need to decide if $10 is worth 2 more hours of Batman. I sold my copy in anticipation of getting the GOTY since I did not have any of the DLC yet. 2 hours is pretty thin but I am sure I will try it on several difficulties. Link to article but warning there are spoilers to the end of the main game if you have not played.

69 degrees and gorgeous!

Also, that Batman DLC doesn't interact with your save file at all. You just launch it from the menu. (This is good news to me, because I bought, beat, and sold on 360 then rebought on PS3 but haven't played it yet.)

Yeah, it's been raining for us for like the last 24 hours. Thankfully the worst that has happened is we lost signal for TV, no power outage.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Yep, you can. ;)

I just finished Batman dlc and thought it's nothing special and the ending was terrible. :/

Also it's as short as Cotwoman pack.

A superhero that has the power of a cot is even lamer than Aquaman.
But it would still make for a better movie than Catwoman.

Peggle is amazing, buy it people if you don't already have it or Peggle Nights.

Why PopCap hasn't done a sequel to this thing is beyond me. I have this game on so many systems and phones it's not even funny.

Thanks for posting. Pretty much echoes the IGN review, except you turned their 6 paragraphs into 2 sentences. Nice.

And with that, I think I'm gonna wait on the Arkham City DLC. I think it will get a sale fairly quickly, DLC always does.

I'll be that guy (and I'm not trolling at all). But what is so special about Peggle? I honestly do not get it at all. Barely made it through the game, and have no desire to ever check it out again. So I really don't understand what others see in it?

Also, it appears Raskulls and Joe Danger were the PlayXBLA codes for the week, so lots of those floating around the trading thread. I absolutely loved Raskulls, so I'd recommend that to anyone!!!

Have all the games for popcap already... get astropop if you havent already!! PvZ also for those who been living under a rock.


agreed. PvZ is truly awesome and worth the money. It's also a different feeling experience than the PC version as you don't have to frantically click on sun. and don't forget the co-op and versus modes (though i wish they included online play!).


0:48 wave 33 start. 5:57 wave 35 start. 10:41 wave 37 start.

ahhh... good memories...

I agree. It's really overrated.

Completed the Batman DLC already...100%...what a letdown. Did nothing new from the main game(s) and it was WAY to short and easy.

Edit: No hard mode? No Robin in the city. No twists or surprises in the story :(

I also just beat the dlc and I have to say it was great. More batman AC is by far no where near a bad thing. The only letdown was the ending. I hoped for more, and possibly a spoiler for the next game, but alas there wasn't. Overall the dlc imo is a 8.8 out of 10

Peggle is amazing. I refuse to accept dissent.

Most versions of Peggle offer Peggle Nights as DLC. But originally, it was a stand-alone sequel to Peggle. It's more Peggle.

there's an error in the OP. Feeding Frenzy is 200 (normally 400). Feeding Frenzy 2 is 400 (normally 800).

I briefly skimmed the last dozen or so posts, but didn't see it mentioned, will the Peggle Nights DLC work with Peggle from the retail PvZ disc? My apologies if it was already asked.

Don't forget: many of these Popcap games are available on disc in one form or another.

Popcap arcade vol 1&2 aren't cheap anymore, they've gone into the rare OOP category. The easiest to get a hold of at the moment is Plants Vs. Zombies which also includes Peggle and Zuma. PvZ disc + buying the Peggle Nights expansion = best deal. With this sale, though, 1,000 for Peggle+PvZ is probably better than having to run it from a disc the entire time.

Feeding Frenzy 2 adds 2-4 player multiplayer. That's the real reason to buy it. One caveat: Lives are shared between both players in co-op. Slightly annoying but still tolerable when my son uses up all of our lives every level so I have to beat it without ever dying.


Holy mother fucking shit! I had no idea those disks were starting to be considered rare! I may have to sell them, especially if the price goes up more! Are any of the other compilation disks rare? I have almost all of them!
