Nothing for me this week. My backlog appreciates this.

It's discontinued, not unobtainable. Which means it was available at one point but is no longer. From reading the solution it seems a patch broke one of the achievements.

They completed it before a patch that broke an achievement, making it now uncompletable. Hence Discontinued rather than Unobtainable.

MS should have a huge SPRING DLC sale, where only DLC is on sale!
That would be great! Now if only these weekly sales would contain something that interests me that I don't already own...

I wish DLC would get permanent price reductions more often. It's idiotic that a game like Fallout New Vegas is $14.99 but all of the DLC is still $10 each

C'mon harmonix sell the rivals by itself... What's the point of picking up the bundle if I can't do anything with the physical disc afterwards and pay $11 more dollars to have it digitally?

What's with these sales for Xbox 360 only being one game series?
They're probably going to be taken down from the store soon. Think of all the articles that have been out recently regarding delisted dlc and games. Sooner or later you'll understand that 360 marketplace won't be around for much longer.

This probably hasn't been mentioned before by anyone but I'd really like a big sale on DLC. smile

Always wanted to try Tropico. Which one should I get ? 3 or 4 as they're dirt cheap.
I played both on the PC, but 4 won my heart and most of my time. 3 was a casual distraction for me, a thing to fuck around on after work. 4 got me pretty hooked and I played it more seriously and obsessively. I'd say go with 4- everything's smoother and the UI is sooooo much better.

Hmm never played Tropico or any game similar to it, may pick up all three. 3000 gs for under $10 with an average of 20 hour completion times each seems like a good deal to me.

Yeah, 4 (with the DLC) is an excellent entry point to the series.

Most pain free way to get Saints Row (AU) when I'm in America?
Ive already got AU billing on my account so I cant remember how it got on there exactly but I think its from a GwG game I got from AU, it'll just ask for an address (I googled one) when you try to make a purchase and then last night I bought one of these $15 gift cards and added it at checkout. All done through the xbox website but it would work through the console too.

You will likely need to change your console's location to Australia in your settings to initiate the download after purchase but once its going you're free to swap back.

Wont be able to by many games with the left over $ but maybe some cheap DLC or a small game, I bought Snooker Nation Championship Achievements
Worked perfectly. Thanks.
