    The Adventures of Shuggy is greatly overlooked... check it out for sure. An indie developer friend of mine made it. Congrats to him for making XBLA.

    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 hate to sound like a jerk, but if you care about achievements, completion %, or just completing games overall, then DON'T buy any EA sports games.
    I'm gonna ninja you!!

    Wow, that's disgusting. I genuinely feel bad for you. For all the people saying he should learn his "EA lesson", well, it's not like the DLC came out a year ago is it? It's not like he put off doing the game until the day before servers are closed.

    In an ideal world EA would fuck off toast

    I just picked up "The Adventures of Shuggy" two months ago. I still have yet to play it.

    Ah, well, I only wasted about $5 by not waiting for a price reduction. Kicking myself over something like this is pointless.

    All this talk about Shuggy, after looking it up I'm tempted. For only 400 points it seems a steal!

    I said this because we were in the same boat with fifa 11, with server closing in a month.

    I wasn't blaming him.

    About time Shivering Isles went on sale, can pick that one up on disc with the full game for cheaper than it's price before this cut.

    That was FIFA 09 Ultimate Team we were rushing to beat with a month to spare. Come on, you gotta keep your specific reasons to hate EA straight! wink

    I've at least cleaned up almost everything else in FIFA 12 online, so it's really all about hoping they make another challenge sometime. I could see it happening when some of the World Cup qualifying matches occur.
    I miss the good old days of WW2 Call of Duty

    if you don't have shuggy, quit reading this and go buy it. 5 bucks is a steal.

    You're right, sorry, but EA is closing too many servers, it's hard to keep a track smile
