    Finally a price drop on shivering isles. Why have dlc for $30, when you can buy the game of the year edition for $20?

    Ahh that's good news. I was always annoyed because the prices wouldn't drop online but they did in the shops.

    I've heard good things about The Adventures of Shuggy. Picking it up straight away.

    Wish that the shiver isles price had dropped earlier!

    Nice I think i will download the trial of Xotic know, I was looking for a 400 point game, and hopefully this will tick the box :)

    Defenders of Ardania is one of the most bland, boring Tower Defense titles I've played (and I completed Crystal Defenders...). There's just something off about it that makes the whole package seem....strange. I don't know how to really put it, but the game is simply dull despite all the activity taking place.

    Why still have DLC at the same price point as the GOTY Edition? I guess it could be good for the really late adopters or those who bought the double pack with Fallout 3.

    I've been waiting for a DotW for Shuggy for a long time. I guess it wasn't coming, this is good too.

    What's Xotic, I've never seen it before.

    Edit: Oh, that one. Only 99 people played it, that's not a lot.

    The Adventures of Shuggy is fantastic - I'd highly recommend it!

    Or... it could be a tax on convenience. If I am playing a game, and want DLC, do I want to stop playing, get dressed appropriately to go out to a store, find my keys, start the car, drive to GameStop, buy the DLC or whatever is cheaper, bullshit around with my friends there for 30 or more minutes, probably in the process buying 2 - 4 other games that I don't need OR do I just want to save myself the trouble and pay an extra $10 online? I usually choose option 2 unless I REALLY need to go out to a store that day.

    Didn't realise the Shivering Isles DLC was still 2400 points when I picked up the GotY edition back in March for around £8. Really should go back to Oblivion at some point.
    Feel free to PM me about the GTA IV walkthrough, or any problems you're having with the game.

    Shivering Isles should have been reduced a long time ago... you can buy the GotY edition for under $20 so there is no reason to keep the price inflated.
    Ha ha, Charade you are!

    Nothing for me here. I got Iron brigade for 600 MSP during the Microsoft Publisher Sale and rented out the Oblivion GOTY Edition to get Shivering Isles for free. laugh

    I couldn't justify getting the Euro 2012 DLC, they were charging a crazy price for it in my opinion. Maybe I'll get it now, so I can finally complete it.

    I understand convenience, but paying 100% extra is a bit much, especially since buying the disc gives you a permanent transferable license that can be used multiple times, as long as there's a working Xbox 360 in the world, regardless of server shutdowns. And all you had to do was visit a store that sells games sometime in the past 5-6 years.
