Wow, a free game! And it looks pretty good, too. The name sounds familiar. Is this a remake?

No..3 Microsoft interns made it.

The name "Aegis Wing" sounds similiar to the old genesis game "Zero Wing", which gave us the "All you base are belong to US!" lines.

But seeing as the game was made by 3 interns, I'd have to say it's not a remake.

Though the name does sound like it should'a been done before, no?

This MB tends to get on my nerves..and no, not because people don't always use the search function, or not because people ask questions that were asked days ago, or not because someone doesn't go back and read a thread that is 30 pages long...it is people like you who are nice enough to point out things like that.

Does it really bother you that much? By doing what you are doing, you are basically bumping a topic that has already been discussed; therefore, you are doing the opposite of what you want done, which is to see this thread sink to the bottom.

As a person who works 50+ hours a week, I would never go back and read a thread 30 pages long, nor would I search previous days threads to see if it had been mentioned.

Someone was trying to post something to help everyone out, get over that it has been covered. Also, if someone asks a question, aren't we all in this for the same goal in mind..to get videogames at a cheaper price?? Not to sit here and put up a hissy fit because someone overlooked something.

Sorry I had to vent but I have seen this far too many times by far too many regulars to let it go. Let's share the love people, and if something has already been covered, just let it go.

With that said..if it is in the wrong forum...FLAME THEM!!;) Kidding..

There's nothing wrong with linking to the original thread, but it shouldn't be done in an exasperated manner, IMHO.

and being as this IS a videogame deal (free game) and not everyone here visits the 360 section of the forum on a regular basis (and vice versa I'm sure) what's the big deal if it's posted here. I did not know about this until I saw this thread here, so thx much OP!

No need to be in the videogame forum. If they don't visit the 360 forum, or do not turn on their 360, its not our problem.

Right on. I had no idea about this, so I'm damn glad this thread popped up. I understand that there are general forum guidelines, but why jump on someone's ass for a repost?

What you fail to notice is that this EXACT SAME TOPIC has been posted 3 times already in this forum and has been moved or closed every single time. This topic is nearly word for word to the one in the 360 sub forum. Is it really too much to ask for ANYONE who is posting a thread to do a simple search BEFORE THEY POST?

I work 50+ hours a week myself. What's your point? Does that somehow entitle you, or anyone else to be lazy when it comes to searching before you do a post? In this case, if you search for AEGIS, it's the VERY FIRST POST that comes up. It's not all that hard or takes all that long to do.

Under your logic, why even have a search function? Why even have moderators for that matter? Let's just let everyone post every single topic they want to as many times as they want to.

I agree. I'll continue to call a duck a duck, and if a thread has already been posted or is old, I'll let it be known. And I expect others to do the same for any of my theads. Most posters are sensible enough to realize it's not a personal attack nor a comment on one's intelligence--it is just the quickest way of letting the poster know that the topic has been discussed and that we do not need a duplicate thread on the matter.

Edit: And I'm not commenting on the duplicative nature of this thread or the lack of it, just to be clear.

The Texas Hold 'Em game was available for free for the first 72 hours IIRC.

I didnt know about this either, thanks OP!
I have too many systems to troll each forum for every one, so I am glad this made the general deals section.
And for the record, I didnt know about Aegis Wing to even search for it... so again, THANKS for posting this for those of us who missed it however many times it was brought up in other areas of the site.
Kudos to OP, thankie.

okay jeez I assumed that nobody posted this yet and I no longer own a 360 and I rarely visit that board anyway, since this was pretty recent news I'd thought it be on the first page but it wasnt, my bad guys.

I have a question about this : If you "purchase" an item in the marketplace for free during a limited window and then you need to re-download it at a later date for one reason or another, are you able to do this without charge like you would for actually purchased items?
Basically I need to know if I can delete that HD South park that takes up over a gig of memory.

Yes, it was. This game actually sounds pretty interesting. Sure, it's another schmup, but the linking ships together so one guy can steer and the other shoots is unique, or at least I've never heard of a game that used that idea before. These days, you've got to have a gimmick for a shoot-em-up to get mass appeal. Like Ikaruga's polarity. Speaking of Ikaruga, where the hell is it? That was confirmed for XBLA ages ago.

Yes, you can re-download free marketplace content even after they start charging for it. Basically it just checks to see if your account has downloaded that content in the past and if it has you can re-download it for no charge. It doesn't bother to check whether or not you paid for the content or if it was free content at one point.

info with (some of?) the only pics on the internet. Looks crappy imo :p It was made by 3 interns over a 3 month internship....although they probably worked longer finishing it up. Oh well, I will play.
