I'm 34 years old, and damned it, I want my freaking half-undressed anime chick.

In for 12 to afford a dozen roses for my body pillow Kimiko.

The last "free" game Microsoft gave out was Yaris, and that was a paid promotion from Toyota, and was voted one of the worst arcade games ever.

MS has had more recent free games come out than that: Dash of Destruction, Doritos Crash Course, and Harms Way.

Yes, I forgot about that. Still, is it really something of value that anyone wants? It's like a bank giving out a toaster for being a loyal customer: it's something, but is it really useful or something you'd want?

And all the apologists, who try to twist it around and ask, "why do you keep giving them money?":

Because they have the only online system that isn't a mess, (PSN), or a joke, (Wii). I can log on with one unified account, and just play my games. That part is what keeps me on their console.

Also, everyone else I know and play games with exclusively play on the Xbox 360. I'm not being the only one left out.

My gripe is about their crappy idea of what a reward or what a sale is. My complaints are justified. And believe me, if Steam ever came out with a console, especially if I got to keep my existing library of games, I'd switch in a heartbeat.

I just wish Microsoft would step it up.

And for those very reasons Microsoft does not need to step it up. Right now they are the dominant force in online gaming and don't need to offer rewards to promote loyalty. Should they lose market share you might see them offer more.

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't trying to defend or justify MS' sales / rewards. Between a decent XBL experience and large subscriber base (i.e. hostage count), MS doesn't need to offer more in the way of sales, rewards or price cuts. Until MS' competition improves, we're going to be stuck with what we have.

Multi-character:

  • Marvel: Avengers Chronicles table for Pinball FX2 (Iron Man, Captain America)
  • Marvel Pinball table for Pinball FX 2 (Iron Man, Spider-Man)
  • Value Pack DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (Spider-Man's Evil Twin, etc)
  • Costume Pack DLC for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ... also works in UMvC3! (Iron Man, Captain America)


Decided that Zen Studios could use my money more than Warner Bros. (for Arkham City DLC), and it's almost a sure bet that Arkham's DLC will be on sale within a few months. :-)

nfl blitz for 1200 MSP isnt bad I suppose. Its been out for awhile so any minute now it could go on sale. Hopefully nba jam goes back on sale for 800 MSP. I could use that as a basketball filler until Live 13 releases.

Onechanbara, greatest sport of all time.

Seriously though, undecided. I'll take advantage, but a matter of deciding if I want to buy a game and pinball as a filler or just buy all pinball. At least I have a month to decide.

I got this link to work a couple of days ago, but now it just gives me an error. Maybe someone realized that many of these items on the list weren't really the sports-related content they had in mind.

On another note, my superhero points from last month are now pending.

@NintendoCleveland: Yeah seems Xbox Rewards support kept deleting from posts, because it was inaccurate. They better have meant they need to ADD the recently approved content, not REMOVE the not-so-sportlike items I made several purchaes based on that official list.

@Gabrius: Yes, a CAG asked in the rewards suppor tforum and it was confirmed. Will post link if I come across it today.
