Status: Completed Dead Money and unlocked all 5 achievements Achievements: 51 of 75 Gamerscore: 1035/1655 Of the two bits of Fallout New Vegas DLC I have played so far, Dead Money had to be the dullest and most pointless of them both.

Torchlight

Status: Can you really ever finish Torchlight? Achievements: 12 of 12 Gamerscore: 200/200 DLC Purchased: None The Xbox Deal of the Week is always hit or miss for me.
