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  

Have fun!

FAQ

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.

Nothing.

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 own the Season Pass containing Burial at Sea Part 1+2, Clash of the Clouds DLC’s for this game.

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.

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.

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:

You’re making good progress! Far Harbor was by far the best of the DLCs, in my opinion

Lengray

Thanks. It’s good to play F4 after beating the main quest last year. And I just docked into Far Harbor today ;)

Lengray

I’ve beaten all the DLCs and I agree Far Harbor is the best one. You can read my review on the main page if you’re interested.

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:

Ohh, thanks for reminding me of those 2 To the Moon Minisodes. I totally forgot about them. :o

I just finished them. Worth playing when you have 30-40 minutes or so free.

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.
