    Already have the Scrabble. Cheers to no achievements being affected on Tetris (WP). Death to EA!!!!!!!!!!

    I think if EA close down servers affecting games with online achievements, they should make all their games pop the online achievements or have offline alternatives, such as what they did with ME3, for example:
    Mass Effect 3Peak ConditionThe Peak Condition achievement in Mass Effect 3 worth 37 pointsReach level 20 in multiplayer or level 60 in single-player.


    The only exception to this is Defender:
    Mass Effect 3DefenderThe Defender achievement in Mass Effect 3 worth 40 pointsAttain the highest level of readiness in each theater of war.


    I would hate to pick up ME3 after the servers close and not be able to 100% complete this gem. I am working through the ME3 MP ASAP because although it will be one of their all time greats, I do not trust EA to keep servers open too long.

    Some reason burnout revenge is back online. I was doing single player and clicked on clips by accident, it works again. I tried online and 2 ppl were online and we did a couple races.

    Someone commented on that during a session I was in earlier. Kind of odd

    I thought I had one to spare, but when I went to get it to send the code, I couldn't find it cry

    As much as I'd love to get this achievement, it's not possible for myself anyway, I live in Australia... Gah.

    If EA ever accidentally reactivated all their servers, I might possibly drop everything to run out and get a used copy of FIFA 09 to get that real world winner achievement. Oh that would be the day.

    Someone keep us updated with Burnout

    EA should not be allowed to have online achievements on their games.
    Yes, I know I am.
