    So there are no new achievements for Dead Island? Wack. I'll take a pass then.

    So excited for the Dead Island DLC, however, I don't see a rush for it since I'm buying new games and getting Bastion (finally). I'll get it as soon as I can, though. Hopefully as a Deal of the Week.

    I thought the Ryder White DLC would have achievements.

    I also thought the Cain Velasquez Workout Pack for UFC Personal Trainer would as well especially as the free DLC came with an achievement it seems odd that the one you have to pay for doesn't.

    Heh. Not that I have WWE '12 to find out or anything, but I wonder if the Brodus Clay available is the highly entertaining FUNKAAAAAAAASAURUSSSSSS that made his debut a month ago, or Alberto Del Rio's generic bodyguard #33736/protege from NXT. I'm going to assume the latter, but it would be awesome if it were indeed the Funkasaurus.

    I find the lack of achievements disturbing.

    Dissapointed that there was no achievements for the Dead Island DLC, I bought it anyway though as I liked the game and it does offer more to the story and more in-game items. I'm sure it will be worth my points

    What an utterly stupid design decision by the Dead Island developers to release campaing DLC without achievements. It's a cash cow for them and sells it whether it's good or not. I love the game but I would like a reward for having spent my time on it. I won't be buying this until very cheap, which for me is a shame :(

    Dead Island DLC should have had achievements, what a shame.

    What, if anything, has Square-Enix said about the possibility of all these pre-order DLC being released later? I didn't have the time or money right now to pre-order FFXIII-2, but I'd like to get it later when I clear up some time and have some funds, but it'd be a real bummer to miss out on some DLC.

    They had achievements for the MULTIPLAYER Bloodbath Arena DLC but none for the campaign Ryder White DLC. I hate you, Techland. I hate you all.
  • Posted on 31 January 12 at 23:23
    ... OH NOES NO ACHIEVEMENTS!!!!!

    Funny that a great many people would complain that there ARE achievements for it.....

    I may or may not get it but it having achievements won't be a dealbreaker for me. But again, that's just me.

    I have to admit that while I'm not OUTRAGED that there are no achievements for the Dead Island DLC, I do find it strange that there aren't any - especially considering how that would have most likely tipped the scales towards more purchases. I was on the fence about this DLC (not a huge fan of the game) but was considering it due to having more achievements to go for...but now that there are none, I guess I've saved myself 800msp.
