And it's happening to me pre-emptively now. I was steadily heading toward 1000 Gamerscore in Mirror's Edge
, and then the DLC was released adding 250 points, and through its Achievements, actually makes some of the non-DLC parts of the game more
difficult. Knowing that I have to pay another ten bucks, and
that I will have to redo some parts that I've already written off, just to attain 100% completion has discouraged me from even finishing the last of the original set of Achievements.
It comes up with Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
, too. All I had left to earn were a handful of online Achievements, and now news has come out that I'll be barred from my precious 100% unless I want to drop another ten dollars. And similar to Mirror's Edge
, this news has discouraged me from playing any further.
You might say that this issue is all in my head. Certainly, with Halo 3
, I know that I completed what the original game asked of me. But when a source as official as MyGamerCard.net tells me with a neat little progress bar at just over half finished, after all the effort I put in, that I am nowhere near being finished, I can't help but feel a little miffed. What do you think? Do you like when DLC adds Achievements, or are you like me, hopelessly feeling stripped of accolade whenever it occurs?
