    Wow...so many links!
    Job & A Social Life, achievements most gamers refuse to earn...therefore, their ratios are high.

    Idiot developers who release DLC without achievements. Alien Isolation and the Crew are a prime example!

    wes coasn said:Anybody recomend Watch Dogs and Far Cry 4 season passes? Just for the achievements...Watch_Dogs - no. The Season Pass is currently a tiny bit cheaper than the Bad Blood DLC pack (£11.99 alone) plus you get some achievement-less extras. I need to purchase the DLC or S-Pass myself too at some point but I think I may just wait patiently and see if they at least push the pass or pack by itself to 50% discount.... one day.

    Unless I've missed it in the past, I've yet to see the DLC pack itself go on sale. I'm not too interested in the extras that come with it.

    I've never considered buying a dlc that does not include achievements or make achievements more obtainable, so I believe he has a point

    Think I will have to get that Shadow of Mordor Season Pass, and maybe a cheap-o XBLA game just to round it out. Will wait on the weekend sales before making any purchases though.

    Wake up bro, for some people achievements and the challenge that comes with unlocking them is the fun.

    Personally I'm glad not all DLC ever has achievements (yet). If I see a DLC with achievements, I'm pretty much screwed since I know at some point I'm going to buy it no matter how much I hate the game (Example : Cod Ghosts, though I bought the Season Pass when it was at least half off). I've gotten better about waiting for sales if its a game I don't actually like, but if you're a completionist, DLC can just force you to put more hours into a game you already know you dislike.

    I have nothing against buying achievement-less DLC, it's just my enjoyment of the game is more of a factor in this case.

    If you are paying $10-$20 for a DLC, Achievements should be included without thought. Ive seen games you would never think go over the 1000GS come and spit out a $10 DLC with cheevos, but when you spend good money for a DLC which is supporting the company they should support you with Achievements. Achievements not only add a challenge but give the game more reason to play. Im looking at you DESTINY! Spend $40 on 2 DLCs and get little story, 1 strike, 1 raid, and 0 extra Achievements. I dont understand the logic! Heres a company that has always put DLC Cheevs with thought and most of them were quite fun to earn. Destinys Achievements had little to no thought involved. I mean how hard is it to add Achievements Halo MCC has already added what? An extra hundo? Yeah shouldnt be an issue for any company!

    Anyone know if picking up the season pass for Watchdogs or Farcry 4 on 360 gives you it on XB1 too?
    Or is there a date to do it by, like there was with Destiny?
    Or only way is to buy both if want to double up?

    Otherwise ill think ill skip, till they go alot cheaper.
    Went got ShadowOfMordor pass, hopefully wont be disappointed
