    Does any of the Forza DLC add achievements? Looking at the page I would assume no....

    Any car packs to buy or avoid? I generally don't buy cars since there are already so many in game, but if there is an exceptional pack on sale I will.

    Joe Danger: Special EditionDANGER IS MY MIDDLE NAMEThe DANGER IS MY MIDDLE NAME achievement in Joe Danger: Special Edition worth 128 pointsSo dangerous they named him twice! Collect all stars in career mode.
    shock

    Though I'm not gonna worry about not being able to get 200/200, as long as the controls are smooth, the game is fun, and has enough replay value to keep me busy for a while.

    I knew if I waited I could get Joe Danger a little cheaper! Didn't even have to wait long.

    Joe Danger and Daytona are no-brainers for me.

    Already have Sega Rally, would be nice to see a bit of an online community to finally 100% it....

    How on earth could Alan Wake at £16 possibly be classed as a deal? I paid £8 over a year ago for it brand new still sealed. This is precisely why the GoD service for the 360 will never be a success. I assume it comes with The Writer DLC.
    That's a negative.
    ...the one thing I don't understand about GoD is that they NEVER come with DLC. Borderlands was more expensive than the GoY edition (which was out when GoD version was released), and even at launch, Fable was NOT the Lost Chapters version, which was also cheaper at retail. The only Digital GoD games I have are the one's I got for FREE (Halo Reach because of the disc format mixup, and Bioshock 2 as a prize or promotion or something). I like the concept, but the pricing, even on sale, is ridiculous. If you are going to charge more, include the DLC!!
    I have Monopoly (My ex-gf bought it, it's a bad game), Assassin's Creed, which was £20 and I only bought it because I brought home AC II and noticed it continued from AC I, which I never finished, and I couldn't be bothered to go back out to the shops, and Bully, which is actually cheaper on GoD than most shops.

    But no, overall, it's a very expensive service. I really hate not having the games on a disk format.

    Daytona takes ~20mins... considering Joe Danger for more of a challenge
    Life, it's funny that way.

    Maybe Daytona if it's an easy 200GS...
    It's one of the easiest XLBA completions on the system. It'll take you an hour.
    217 TA and the achievement with the highest ratio is 1.15. So yeah, you're not kidding.

    The Joe Danger price drop is probably due to the sequel coming out soon.
    Picked it up at that price, the game got high praise from critics.

    No splitscreen on Daytona is a deal breaker.

    Actually some do come with DLC. Alice: Madness Returns came with the original Game and the weapon pack, and Dragon Age 2 came with The Black Emporium. I've also heard that a few others do to.

    I have to agree with all you on the GoD prices they are way to high but with they way gas prices are going up they might end up being cheaper than driving to the store. LOL i kid they are to high even then
    It's all about the U
