    Will clearing Halo 4's Spartan Ops count as DLC? It takes a couple hours to clear an episode and there are 10. They're also divided into Ep.1-5 and 6-10 with the last half being an entirely separate grouping of DLC. Should they count as 2 pieces of DLC?

    Beat Paper Mario: Sticker Saga (3DS), which I believe is 1 point :)

    omg I beat my review game which now means I can start participating in this! However, I doubt I'll get enough points to catch up to my opponent because of this! :(

    I'll be good with 2 pieces of DLC worth of points.

    There's still most of the week and I doubt I'm putting up more this round unless I get lucky with FTL. Maaayyybe I'll get Dust done next weekend but the weather's been perfect lately and I need to get out and golf. I bet you can give me a run for the money.

    I'm also going to try to finish up TWEWY iOS, Flow Free (I have four puzzle packs I haven't finished yet and want to finally stomp out), and StarCraft II (since the new expansion is out tomorrow). Might even see if I can sweep up one of those tonight.

    I'm also deciding what to play next on my 3DS. I have 999 from ages ago and NSMB2 from Christmas. Chris also snagged me a copy of Fire Emblem before the 1st so it's a squeaker!

    Edit: And thus, SC2 was wrapped up. Fuzzah, 1 point.

    I suppose the one up-side of being unable to sleep is you get more games finished. So I completed Flow Free last night, which is an iOS puzzle game; it has 2040 puzzles and I completed about a quarter of those this month. Not sure how you wanna score that, FB.

    Also rolled credits on New Super Mario Bros 2, which I hated and wouldn't have finished if it wasn't a Christmas gift, and I hate not finishing those XP On to 999, which I plan on restarting -- I wasn't very far and I don't remember what's going on.

    I've been putting a lot of consideration into this and since I didn't clarify that we began on the first of this month, I think I'm going to hold the contest out until the end of the first week in April. So the first set of cuts will be on the 24th, instead of the 18th. I wanted to give everybody more time to get in some games and not feel like they're going to lose because they didn't start exactly on the 1st. I hope you guys all agree with my decision!

    Thanks for making this awesome.

    Oh. And I finished Dishonored tonight for 1 point! I liked it. I'll post more thoughts tomorrow on the completed games thread.

    Also, Paws, I went with a half point on the Flow Free game. Hope that's ok.

    Took a bit of a detour today and beat 10000000 (PC). Took me a little over 5 hours total, so not sure if you want to count it as 1 point or just 1/2.

    I am finally on the board! I finished Assassin's Creed II [PS3] and both it's story based DLCs, Assassin's Creed II: Bonfire of the Vanities AND Assassin's Creed II: Battle of Forli. This nets me 2 points! <3

    I should be done with Red Dead Redemption by now, but trying to blitz through an open-world (Rockstar) game isn't my style. I probably should've tackled something else... instead I keep getting sucked into $100 poker games, hunting random wild beasts and completing outfits :)

    That's awesome. That was a fun game. Had just the right amount of content I feel like.

    Oh it's on like Donkey Kong, Hyphy! (jk!) But yes, this competitive part is totally adding the extra pressure I need to force myself to push through some of these games. Holy moley. XD

    I'm probably too late to join this...

    Goals for this month however:
    Alien Breed (Already finished) (downloadable, so definitely not a full point.)
    Bentley's Hackpack (Also downloadable)
    Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Will probably finish)
    Borderlands 2 (Yeah right... Like I'll finish that this month.)
    Ni No Kuni (Same thing, I'll likely not get it done)
    Etrian Odyssey 4 (Not likely.)
    Sly Cooper 3 (Maybe...)

    And there go the credits on Red Dead Redemption for 1 point. A lot to process on this one, but will post my thoughts in the Completed Games thread. May attempt the Undead DLC, but I want to look at how much of a time commitment it'll be and how well it was received.

    Undead Nightmare was quite possibly the best piece of DLC I've played (not counting Rock Band stuff). If you at all enjoyed the original game, you really should play it. It is pretty lengthy, and also pretty difficult at the beginning until you get a handle on the changed focus of the combat, but it is a great B-movie send-up of the characters.

    Three Sleeping Dogs DLC (Xbox 360) Completed:

    Nightmare in North Point
    Zodiac Tournament
    Year of the Snake

    This nets me another 1.5!

    How was Year of the Snake? Worth getting?

    Finally finished off Dragon Knights Glorious (1 point) last night. Man, what a lot of text to read through...

    Does Disgaea 3's side DLC count? Because I finished 2 of those this week. If so, that means I'm at 1.5 points.

    2 hours left to see if I finish Twilight Princess this week or next.

    Edit: Twilight Princess finished with 30 minutes to spare... 2.5?

    Now what am I going to beat...

    Year of the Snake was fabulous, insane, and just the right amount of content. Plus you can now stop people and go "HONG KONG POLICE. GIMMIE YOUR CAR" and not feel so bad about stealing them. :D The plot is excellent though.
