BioShock DLC Frustration
I've had this game since launch day back in 2007. Played, and beaten it, many times. Tonight I decided to come back to BioShock, grab the last 3 achievements, and then wrap this game up for good. Sadly, one of the options needed for the Brass Balls achievement, Disable Vita-Chambers, isn't an option in the menu anymore.

After some digging I found a post illuminating the problem. According to 2K Jake on the 2K forums, "This issue seems to be related to downloading the DLC to multiple XBox 360s with the same XBox Live Gold account."

The suggested approach is to:
-Remove the game, if installed, from HDD.
-Delete the Genetic Improvements DLC.
-Clear the system cache.
-Create a new silver account.
-Download the DLC with the new account.
-Load the game and grab the title update.

Once all of that is completed, I should be able to have a fully functional copy of the game again. Not sure if you all recall, but starting a new silver account isn't as easy as just clicking through the menu. You have to provide a valid email address and jump through all the hoops of signing up. So instead of being 2 hours into getting the Brass Balls achievement, I'm sitting here bitching about the situation while the game re-installs on my HDD.

Thanks 2K...
