Probably shouldn't have done 2 title updates from the MCC for this bean dive...
Congrats! Think this was worth the full price.... before they shut it all down? Any idea if local co-op worked on there too? I know it did for the base game.
The funny thing is you don't need to do it in co-op AT ALL for the DLC! You can do it completely solo.

The only thing you need to watch for is the mission specific achievements. I did everything on Realistic difficulty, and it honestly wasn't that bad. If you screw up,
you can die on purpose and try again. Like killing 12 guys (with the B button only!) in the Crypt without alerting anybody. Basically, they can't call reinforcements.
For some of the others you need to alert them on purpose, but it can wait till you sneak around the level shooting outs lights or turning them off.
I know you said you weren't into RTS' anymore but if you decide you want to mop up the online portion before the closure let me know.
I too need a partner, so if Abyssal is out, count me in Algur.

You guys should boost without me. I'm not interested
Wow 2022 is putting the nail in the coffin for 360 games, everything is going
This game does not provide a whole lot of options for stealth. I'm also not a fan of enemies just spawning in when you reach a certain point. Some levels feel really lazy
in their design and just slapped together. I really don't like how much lighting is in some areas and no option turn the lights off.

Yeah when I first played this & Blacklist it was a huge disappointment from the previous games that required full stealth :( Not a bad story, but the others were better.
This & Blacklist put too much combat into the mix where the games were always focused on stealth over fighting before :(
I do look forward to playing Double Agent but probably not right away. I'm going to burn myself out playing too much Splinter Cell games!
Yep I did the same. Last time I did the old ones I ran straight through the series back to back before playing Double Agent. Had fun but got burnt out on SC for a bit :P
I do look forward to picking up and playing the other Splinter Cell titles. I'm a bit late to the party playing the Splinter Cell games but that's typical for me.
Blacklist was the first game I played out of the series.

I have the old ones all on GameCube still and then Double Agent was the first on 360 for me. Love the originals! Michael Ironsides was much better as Sam :D
Oh wow, yeah, the OG Xbox had the best games. Pandora's Tomorrow was awesome. I'd love to experience them all again. Great memories.
Yeah, Pandora's Tomorrow or Chaos Theory were probably my favorites of the series. I still love the first one too though :D
Honestly they were all fun, although Conviction & Blacklist are low on my list. They are fun but don't play the same as the original games that relied more on stealth.
I am in the action, coop camp so Conviction is my favorite. I still need to do Double Agent if the server's are still up.
Luckily Double Agent can be done fully offline :D I need to go do that side of it still also someday. Conviction is on sale this week for anybody wanting it.
Soo... I found I do have Double Agent in my collection. I now just need to buy Conviction. Luckily, it's on sale this week. How is that for timing?
It's just too bad the DLC for Conviction isn't on sale but I guess it could be worse.
I haven't bought the DLC for Conviction still. Tried to do SC:C with nephew but he struggles at those sorts of games so never could finish & it won't work on my net :(
The bad news for conviction it looks like I can only play with the other Xbox 360 players due to compatibility issues. The Halo games had issues like that too.
You know, I didn't know that was a thing. I should ask this guy I played with what he was on because we couldn't connect & I thought it was my internet but maybe not?
Soo slight update I tried buying Splinter Cell: Conviction but it's still showing up as $19.99 on the 360. I have money on my account, but I want to avoid using a
credit card. I do not want to buy it off of Microsoft's website if that's what I would have to do.
I tried looking for you but the Marketplace site is giving RUntime Errors so maybe there's an issue with the 360 store? The X1 store shows $6 though.
If you like this, don't miss SC:Conviction. That one is even better, an absolute masterpiece!
I have that game on my to buy list!
Nice! I’m jealous
I'm pretty sure I hit this once before but starting a good number of games and not finishing them brought it down.
So they can repeat both 360 games, then why not just keep repeating games monthly instead of retiring it lol better than nothing
Exactly, not everybody has had Gold all this time. I've only had mine since about winter 2017/2018 and a few scattered months before that. :(
I wouldn't mind repeats better then losing it all together sure I missed some :)
Let me know if you need a co-op partner. I would like to get those done before the servers go off into the sunset.
I am playing with someone else BUT I don't mind helping you out. I'll be playing this game for a while anyway. Most of the online isn't too bad to get. The co-op bit
will probably take us a few tries to get through but it's not bad so far. The daily challenge isn't too bad from I've seen it's the weekly one you need to worry about
For example, is the weekly challenge a pain in the butt? When I did it wasn't bad. I have not looked at it since I got it though
We only need to do the co-op only missions but if want help with the others that's cool too
