September: Deal with the DLC
It’s easy for DLCs to get lost in the shuffle. DLCs don’t show up among your unplayed games here, you need to click on a game in your steam library to see what DLCs you own, and beating a DLC does not make your stats look better here on Backlog Assassins. And yet there’s some great DLC out there. So this month’s theme is dedicated to all the DLC that has been sitting unplayed and overlooked in our steam libraries.
To participate, reply to this post and tell us which DLC that fit the monthly theme you’re going to play. Small cosmetic DLCs don’t really count, but anything that adds story content or more gameplay (like an extra character for a rogue like) does. If in doubt, use your best judgement!
You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!
Name | Achievements obtained | Playtime | Status :-: | :-: | :-: | :-: | :-: name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished TOTAL: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished

Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.
I don’t have any unfinished games!
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.
I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.
I’ll do the DLCs for Little Nightmares, I played it before I had the season pass and wanted to go back. I think that will be all, the only others that come to mind right now are Talos Principle and The Witcher 3 but I doubt I’d have time for these.
|Little Nightmares The Depths DLC||3/3||1.4h||completed|
|Little Nightmares The Hideaway DLC||3/3||1.5h||completed|
|Little Nightmares The Residence DLC||3/3||1h||completed|
Interesting theme! I’ll have to search my library for any DLCs I might have skipped playing and come back to edit, I can’t think of any off the top of my head.
EDIT: Oh, wait, yes I can. I bought a DLC during the summer sale specifically to play with one of my friends. And then I never played it with her. So let’s do that this month. However I won’t be 100%ing the game because that would be an unenjoyable grind for me.
|Monster Prom Second Term||13/32||8.6 hrs||beaten|
|Borderlands 2 - Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt||1/3||4h||beaten|
|Borderlands 2 - Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage||1/3||4.5h||beaten|
|Borderlands 2 - Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary||3/6||3.5h||unfinished (BUT SO CLOSE T_T)|
|Invisible Inc. - Contingency plan||0/4||5h||beaten|
|TOTAL:||achievements obtained||playtime this month||3|
So sad I couldn’t finish the last Borderlands 2 DLC in time (we were SO CLOSE) but it was a nice theme :)
Thanks for hosting the theme this month! The theme picture looks really nice next to your avatar so it was meant to be. :)
If anyone needs some help with finding DLCs to play, then follow this link for DLC library filters: click. It doesn’t show all of them, but at least it’s something.
DLCs I should keep in mind:
- BioShock 2: Minerva’s Den (HLTB 5 hours)
- Prey - Mooncrash (HLTB 12 hours)
- Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide
[ - potentially Rocksmith DLCs ]
EDIT (30.9.): Okay, I blame AC Odyssey, but I only managed to finish a CIV V DLC (scenario) this month. :rip:
|Civilization V (Civ and Scenario Pack: Polynesia)||79 (+3)||78 hours (+3.1 hrs)||finished|
|TOTAL:||3 achievements obtained||3.1 hrs this month||1 DLC finished|
Good theme to finally play this masterpiece =)
|Life is Strange Episode 2||12/12||3.0 hours||completed|
|Life is Strange Episode 3||12/12||3.6 hours||completed|
|Life is Strange Episode 4||12/12||5.3 hours||completed|
|Life is Strange Episode 5||12/12||4.0 hours||completed|
|Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 2||11/11||4.6 hours||completed|
|Life is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 3||11/11||4.3 hours||completed|
A great theme and the perfect opportunity for me to play through the Fallout 4 season pass.
|Fallout 4 - Vault-Tec Workshop||3/3||3.5 hours||completed|
|Fallout 4 - Automatron||4/5||3.5 hours||beaten|
|Fallout 4 - Far Harbor||9/10||19 hours||beaten|
|Fallout 4 - Nuka-World||4/10||20 hours||beaten|
You’re making good progress! Far Harbor was by far the best of the DLCs, in my opinion
Just bought it a few weeks ago, so I’m going with Prey Mooncrash :)
|Prey - Mooncrash||10/10||35h||completed|
Hmm, I don’t have many games with DLC, and only a subset of those do I actually have the DLC, and only a subset of those have I not already played the DLC.
That said, here’s what’s left:
|The Witcher EE Director’s Cut DLC||no achievements||0h||DLC not started|
|To the Moon Sigmund Minisode 1 Free 2013 Holiday Special DLC||no achievements||0.7h||DLC finished|
|To the Moon Sigmund Minisode 2 Free 2014/2015 Holiday Special DLC||no achievements||1.0h||DLC finished|
|Deus Ex: Human Revolution: The Missing Link||0/10||0h||DLC not started|
|TOTAL:||Zero||1.7h||2 DLC finished|
Pretty interesting theme. :3 I just finished Hacknet DLC last month or it would’ve totally counted. x3
|Sigmund Minisode 1 [Free 2013 Holiday Special]||0/0||? hours||Completed|
|Sigmund Minisode 2 [Free 2014/15 Holiday Special]||0/0||? hours||Completed|

Ok, I’ll start in a soft way. I’ll try to complete this DLC for now: 12 is Better Than 6: The Apostles, an expansion of the main story. BTW, the base game was quite nice.
