    That's assuming you're one of those people that think you have to play all DLC in order to 100% a game. If you're a realist and only count what you actually own, then yes, you can still 100% MUA.smile
    It's not that we count it that way it;s that Microsoft do so no matter what an individual thinks whenever anyone looks at their live profile we can still see that they didn't actually complete something.
    Exactly. If there's DLC and there's achievements attached, it's not complete until those achievements are earned. If my 360voice signature on x360a doesn't include a game in the 100% club, then it's not complete.

    you have remembered the point of playing games is to enjoy them, rather than to 'complete' them, haven't you?

    Everyone has their own reason to play games. Some games I play for fun. Some games I play to 100%. Like the Gears series. I'll NEVER 100% them, but I still play for fun : p

    Seriously, this!
    Does anybody know a solution?
    My locale is set to UK (although I live in the Netherlands), and the game is in French!
    I can get it to Dutch by setting it to the Netherlands, but that might be even worse than French...
    Why are you living in Holland?

    SEGA tennis is great fun, some achievements you can't get anymore online.
    Are the servers down or does no one play it anymore?
    You can still earn all achievements. Just make a session.

    How is Alone in the Dark? Is it a good survival-horror game? Is it good for achievements?

    The achievements are all easy enough and most of the miscellaneous ones can be picked up early on. I wouldn't call it a good game though and the general view is that its shite. Though you should note that im not a survival horror fan anyhoo.

    Is there any reason why they changed the price for SEGA Superstars Tennis from 400 MSP to 640 MSP (4,99 to 7,99 ) here in Germany?

    Already have Prince of persia.
    I've picked Conan and Dark Void, and thinking about to get Alone in the Dark and Blazing angels before the end of sales.

    PDZ and GRAW are getting bought today, I may be the happiest person in the world right now. I probably made the biggest mistake of my gaming life I just bought Bomberman Act Zero.

    Its good for 420 Points, but far away from Alone in the Dark IV (PS1&2).
    Achievements are easy and fair to get, only part that sucks is the
    Car driving to the CentralPark! wink

    Can anyone help? I have a US xbox but live in the UK (also own a PAL box) I downloaded Tornado outbreak as we can't get it in the UK and it downloaded fine.

    The problem is now that I want to also DL Dark Void, Blazing Angels and Kameo as it is cheaper to get them on my US box.

    When I go to buy them it says not available in my region. Any tips?

    As ROBomination said, we all have our reasons. I know the point of playing games is to enjoy them...but I also enjoy going after all the achievements and I enjoy making a game 100% complete as proof that I was willing to do those challenges and overcome them. Metal Gear Solid HD being 1000'd means I went and completed every one of those VR missions in addition to playing through the game on all difficulty settings for the dog tags. It's more proof than gamerscore for me...however I took advantage of this sale to bump my gamerscore up just a bit since it's been trailing behind =P

    In addition, I like completing games I love on my tag. Like the Resident Evil series or Dead Rising series, having all of the complete feels great.

    Oh god. 100% on either Dead Rising seems like so much work to me. I want to, but I may never.

    They still seem to be reduced. Anyone know if this is not just a display error or they are staying reduced?

    So yeah I tried buying a game, apparently they are still on sale, at least in the UK. Just paid £3.99 for Open Season.
