    I've had Overlord 2 in my backlog for years, but was never going to end up doing it is I had to do it on the 360. Guess I have no excuse now smile

    Surprised when I got the message that Overlord was backwards compatible. Unfortunately I never really enjoyed the game so I doubt I'll be going back to play it. I think it was the controls and pace of the game that kept me from getting too into it.

    Overlord Japan?
    I can't confirm 100 percent but I do recall someone commenting on my friend feed when I completed that they wished Overlord would become BC because they could then double stack with a PAL version due to Xbox One not being region locked.

    I personally do not dabble in games from any other country codes so I'm not positive on how that all works but it sounds to me like an overseas copy of Overlord should work just fine.
    That would have been me. lol

    In this case you need a Japanese account to get the DLC if you want to be able to complete it.

    I remember getting the first one when it came out. 2007 wtf!?
    I didn’t get very far, I sucked at it.
    It will be nice to go back to it and actually try and finish it.
    So many games from the early 360 days I just tried, got one achievement in then never played them again.
    They’re killing my average!

    How hard is it to get the DLC for Overlord JP?

    I played through a bit more than half of the first Overlord quite some time ago. Really need to mop that up sometime. The second game I’ve only done the multiplayer boost, so it remains one of the lowest completion games on my tag.

    They’re fun games with a ton of personality, but they’re definitely a bit odd, so they aren’t going to appeal to everyone.

    It is one of my favorite games of all time. I mean it competes with Pikmin from the Nintendo very well. In my opinion it is equal to or even better than Pikmin. In addition to your minions you can upgrade your Overlord in numerous ways that introduce a great deal of RPG elements into the game.

    Having that said, I guess Pikmin does not appeal to everyone either.

    To be honest, not easy. However, I plan to find out and maybe someone else here can explain it better. I have done plenty of foreign stacks but never one with DLC. You borrow or create a Japanese account which seems complicated. Another possible disadvantage is for some games you need to have that account signed to access the DLC.

    I have Overlord stuffed away with like 5 other 360 games that I haven't started and that I'd love to get rid of, but have no value to EB Games so they refused to take them roll

    Maybe I'll start it at some point now, or maybe it will now have enough value at EB Games that they'll take it from me laugh

    It's actually incredibly easy lol.

    Make a Japanese tag on the 360 and purchase the DLC. The hardest part is your prefer method of payment.

    It surprises me some are excited for this... I checked my game list to make sure I was remembering right, and ya I did play them both. half heartedly got about half the points on the first one then 10 big points on the second before I said to myself I would rather chew a pencil than play this anymore. the only other 360 game I remember disliking this much was beautiful katamari. Not judging those who like it at all, I get that tastes are varied.

    What do you mean? What's wrong with the 360?

    Not having that like! I was with you until the Katamari bashing, that game is a masterpiece!
