Need more review. I was hoping for Catan-with-Tanks.


I wouldn't go that far as it's pared down to one resource (money). The tutorial and campaign stage doesn't really do the game too much justice. Boils down to: Grab land, build tanks or a harvester, move tanks to gobble up land to pad your bankroll, let harvester strip mine the land, build a transport to move your tanks if there is a gap between your islands (or use it for a quick move) and kill the other people. Battle wise it plays out as a simple more units wins. But the coolest thing to me is building a harvester and moving it into the enemy's main hub and self destructing, wiping out a huge chunk of their land. Game is extremely fast paced (me and my friend can get through a match in about 15 minutes).

Wish the game was selling as it's definitely a game that will live and die with it's community. A few more units would also be nice but to do that would completely change the pace and style of the game

To clarify after reading the fine print, you have to purchase the 3 Block Party Titles and Game Room and be Gold as well. I'd assume it would work with a one month

I fixed it in the First Post but missed fixing it in my post, apologies for the confusion

No problem. I have a 1-month code, maybe I'll try using it before this and see if I can get an extra month.

Yes you can from your profile's download history. Unfortunately if you've downloaded hundred of things it takes some time finding what you're looking to re-download.

You can also go to the item listing if it's still in the marketplace and there should be a option to re-download it from there without costing you any MSP so long as you are using the same gamertag you purchased it under.

Big thanks to Reddjoey for maintaining this!

Quick question: Are there concise lists for older months? I see the "archived" February list, but further back?

(I've been offline since ~ mid to late Oct. and am just now getting a chance to catch up on DLC etc. Checked the Free Marketplace thread so I'm up to date on free shit, just wondering what arcade games and other DLC I've missed since then)

Yea, I saw that this morning when I DL'd everything. Are they really free once you get in the arcade or are you prompted to purchase them once you play them for the trial period? I started up the Game Room but the loading times were taking forever so I went back to bed.

Thanks. You might want to read through the old thread. (Link to Oct 09 posts) Darkwolfe stopped updating it, which is why I picked it up, but there are some helpful posts still in there. It's really only 3 pages, so it shouldn't take long.

Xboxindex.com (one source I use for this, which honestly, makes this thread asinine) can help you, but they haven't added search by release date yet.

Just FYI the game room downloads are not free games. You still have to purchase the full versions. They are similar to the XBLA demos.

Nice. Won't feel the same without the air blowing in your face like from the arcades, but I do remember talking with friends in the past about how awesome Hydro Thunder would be.

Now we just need word on those arcade titles that'll be on sale starting the 1st. :D

The only details I have seen are the ones I have listed. It appears that you have to purchase all 4 games, and be a valid Gold Member on the that date to be eligible to get the bonus 1 month.

I would suggest sending a tweet to @XboxSupport if you want a 100% answer.

Yes. You can still download them and play them in local multiplayer.

Going to Silver you are not able to: play online, get Deal Of The Week prices, Early access to most demos or certain content.

If you are deciding not to connect to LIVE because you are Silver, make sure your licenses are all for one Xbox. (It will unless you have switched HDD or had a replacement Xbox) otherwise arcade games will revert back to trial unless you are online.
