    So basically the best thing is a song from The Smashing Pumpkins? Oookay. God Naruto is lame. So bad.


    wink

    Think I'll wait for a review of Enter the Dominatrix. And I'm done with season passes. Burned too many times.

    Pretty sure the gta download is twice that size, especially with the updates.
    Look at me so I can finish!

    Yeah, if you read the description, it says the total download is around 16gb.

    After the initial 7.63gb download, it downloads the rest when you first start the game.

    'Content Roundup' is a very fitting name. Out of curiosity, why do you list the DLC that doesn't have any Achievements attached to it?

    Probably because people want to know about it and the site might as well keep those clicks here instead of making thrm go elsewhere for the info.

    I prefer "all in one place" like this.

    As for DLC without achievements, some of us do like knowing what is out there - achievements or not.

    A little disheartening to see the same thing happening with Rocksmith Exports that has happened to all the past Rock Band exports. I assume it's due to liscening issues (expirations) over the years. I would've picked up 1979 instead of Cherub Rock, but oh well.

    And $109 for GTA V in Australia, my gosh.

    that is a lot of money for a game that still has problems online & in story mode.

    A good example why download games will never replace buying physical copies until the game developer stops over changing for there download games on games on demand. They complain about loosing money because of the second hand market in games & yet there happy stealing money from us gamers by over charging for there games when they already save money by not making the game cases, disc's manual's & covers.

    So SRIV continues with the 100G-DLCs? Meh. I hoped they're stepping up to 250g or at least 200g this time.

    What's the point of having Games on Demand when the prices are significantly more expensive that physical copies?!


    I get that retailers don't like it - but it offends me that they think they can even offer it for that price.

    Isn't the GoD version of GTA V likely to have the same problems that are caused by installing the play disc?

    Exactly - I came to this site for everything achievement-based, but the news is always current and completely comprehensive, so its often my first port of call on that front. Also, I love that such dedication and love goes into this site from so many people. I care about achievements, but not only about achievements. My most-played game is the long-ago-completed Borderlands 2, so I'm happy TA still posts about the achievement-less Bloody Harvest update and all the heads/skins info, for example.

    One thing related to the deals - I considered getting NFS The Run for £9.99 (I still fondly remember the Great American Cross Country Road Race on the Commodore 64, so I'm happy to look past the middling reviews), but just to compare prices I looked at physical copies, and instead wound up buying a pre-owned copy from the Blockbuster Marketplace for £3.50 and free delivery.

    Short story - the 'deals' are still rubbish, and not really deals at all.

    This is one of TA's best features. I don't see a meticulous round up like this anywhere else.

    Good show.
