100% percent in all missions sounds like a struggle, but the rest look relatively simple. Pretty happy with that base jumper addition.

Now here is the dilemma. after i finished the lost and damned i sold gta4. so do i buy a 2nd hand gta4 then buy gay Tony dlc for 1600 points? or just but the liberty city stories disc? i think its gonna have to be a 2nd hand gta then get the dlc.

I don't think I like the last two achievements so much... Sounds like the game is rating us on our performance now? Ah, at least it will be a fun time regardless, unlike terrible games that slap you in the face further by giving you a C rating after you finish one of it's crappy levels *glares at Sonic the Hedgehog*

@#21 Yes that was the point I was making brainbox! Acording to Wade anyone with a big gamerscore plays pirate games which is really stupid to link the two. I've been on Live for over 3 years and played around 230 games - either bought, rented or borrowed, so where do pirate games come into that?

@#29 I admit it's a stupid thing to say but some people do have more money than sense. I just don't see how you can say someone playing copied games and use their gamerscore as proof of this? I spend a lot of money on my gaming and wouldn't like anyone to accuse me of this because my scores over a cetain amount.

I wasn't saying that anyone with a score over a certain amount playes copied games. If I actually got 1000 on most of the games I played i'd be getting close to 100k. I was only accusing him based not just on his score but the kind of games and the fact he said he would get the disc but not play it.

If i'm wrong then i'm wrong and i'd only have to apologise to him, not you or anyone else since it wasnt a generalisation

You know people with high scores tend to rent games. There are things like gamefly you know. He could get the game sent to him and not play it. :

Anyway not a bad list this will go on my swapgame list (gamefly is not in UK). :)

I think the fact that he said he would get the disc would negate the theory of him being a "pirate"! I tried Ski Doo out from GameFly (so it is rentable), but it was glitched beyond belief and I gave up on it...kind of like another p.o.s. game on my card...warning, do not, under any circumstances, play BCFX!

100% on all missions could be tricky, so long as there is a simply replay option if you screw up i'll be happy.

Just let go of the pirated games topic already.. geez.. This is an achievements based website, users tend to have high scores. It's stupid if you accuse any person with a score over 100,000 of playing pirated games, seeing as you'd be talking to surely 60-70% of the community here.

Darn, I wish I had waited for the Epilogue. Don't get me wrong, I don't regret buying it but I do wish I had waited for a bargain price. The content just didn't feel right, I beat it though. Something just seemed like it was missing, not to mention it was a little too stressful to fully enjoy.

cool! another 250 possible gs. cant wait for this one. the chievo list is interesting. aparently your character gets to dance. the last two seem like they might have a wrong description tho. it could be that the 80 and 100 percent chievo are for mission progression. (as far as completing missions). or it could be that you have to repeat the missions to 100 percent complete them. as far as a grading system goes...that seems unlikely but could be what it is. i just hope this dlc is longer (and has a better ending) that the LaD. i will probly be playing this in november along with trying to get all the chievos while everyone else is playing MW2, AC2 and L4D2. :)

To the person talking about high gamerscore and pirated games. Have you heard of Gamefly dumbass?

And buying things you don't play. Hey I do it all the time. I bought Devil May Cry 4 & Lost Odyssey on first day of release and have yet to start DMC over a year later & only started LO not too long ago. Many other games I buy I don't end up starting until much later. It's just that things come up or other games come out that people want me to play with them and the older games get pushed aside until I am ready or have time for them.

On topic, these achievements look much harder than last DLC. Thank god they added the ability to replay any mission like a level select! Also after you beat every mission it gives you a stat screen with all sorts of stats from the mission. 100% each one will

So the things they added are parachutes, golf, fight clubs, dancing, rebranded the gang wars from TLAD to drug wars, a few more guns, and a handful of new vehicles?
Not worth 1600.

@68 you forgot to include the Single player campaign(i'd say at least 4 hours of gameplay) along with the things you mentioned, and probably some new MP modes. All this for 1600 pts? sounds good, but you can also go rent the disc version to if that still isn't cheap enough for you. I also think Rockstar hasn't shown or told us about everything new. At least get all the facts and info on something before you close your mind to it.

Good list and im really looking forward to the game. Getting the disk version which should clear some space on my hard drive.

Single player should be about 10 hours long on a speed run but never see the point in doing that on a game like this!
