    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.
    You forgot to mention half the achievements will probably glitch and you'll have to use the USB trick in the solutions to have a chance at getting it.

    It's also laggy as shit. It's not even worth the sale price. Avoid like fuck.

    Finally a price drop on shivering isles. Why have dlc for $30, when you can buy the game of the year edition for $20?
    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.
    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.
    A) Not everyone gets a windfall of cash daily like somebody I know.
    B) This game is 6 years old, the DLC should not be $15, let alone $30.

    Picked up the EURO DLC recently, and now I've got an additional two discontinued achievements on my card. It's still a bit too early to tell, but it looks like EA has stopped posting challenges for the EURO side of the game, so you can't get that achievement or the one for beating all game modes.
    I miss the good old days of WW2 Call of Duty

    I'm wondering why the Stranglehold DLC is still 1200 points and has never been on sale, as far as I know. It came out in 2007. The online has been dead for years and the DLC consists of online maps. I don't know why anyone would pay full price for it.

    Nothing really interesting in there :/ was hoping for some mass effect 2 DLC or something like that, always next time I guess.

    I'm considering Shuggy. However the local co-op puts me off.

    I think you should get it! People online are annoying anyways. :)

    Get one of the other 2354 Jakes to help you? Seriously, no friends or family will play with you? That's pretty sad. Get off TA and go meet some people.

    I am excited the Saints Row the Third DLC is half off until 8/19/12. I don't normally buy DLC but when I do, I get it on SALE! clap

    These are nice but if i ever get around to playing oblivion I will probably just get the GotY disc anyway.

    I bought The Adventures of Shuggy 2 months ago at full price and didn't regret. I really recommend this game at such low price.
