Depending on what you count as a free game, maybe 1 vs. 100 and Karaoke.

I wouldn't count 1 vs. 100 since you couldn't own it. It only existed as long as Microsoft allowed it to run.

The short answer is no.

We get comments like this a lot ("wasn't this game free?"); I'm beginning to wonder if there is some joke I'm just not in on o_O

While I'm at it, games that have been free at some point: Texas Hold 'Em, Undertow, Totemball, Carcassonne, Yaris, the three Doritos games (Dash of Destruction, Harm's Way, Crash Course), Haunt, Wreckateer, Walking Dead Ep 1. I don't think I'm forgetting anything? Other than games that have been free in non-U.S. regions such as Daggerdale.


Mixed it up with underTOW my bad..but there were other free games Fable 2 and WCR were free for a short time period (at least got WCR GoD for free around year ago since they made a mistake...) there was also a free worms game on some meory units back then..and of course hexic HD is free...

I use the WYSIWYG option in Firefox. Had never clicked that toggle to switch to BBcode.


No WYSIWYG option in IEv9 or FFv18 here ... just a plain old edit box with a draggable lower-right corner, and that's it. That probably explains how each line is getting a preceding space at char #1 as well. Hmmm ...

I think you have your Message Editor Interface set to basic (the adjustable text box). It's under the Edit Options on the User CP. Mine's set to enhanced, which has the WYSIWYG option.

It does look like CAG provides a check spelling button for IE users. I have a FF extension that switches my user agent string, and when I set it to a version of IE, I get the check spelling button, but it disappears if I switch back to Firefox and reload the posting page.

Yep, I've fired up IE8, IE9, and the newest versions of Chrome and Firefox and I still don't see a WYSIWYG option.

Ooh, a Bloomy response. I'll look into all that jazz...

Edit: Wow, even as much as I love digging through user options, I may not have ever noticed that if you hadn't brought that to my attention, Bloomy. Thanks. I have... the pooowwwweerrrrrr!

Game Room is in that weird territory as well. You can get some achievements without buying anything anyway.

Also a lot of kinect apps/games as well. Intel Discovered is a straight-up game that is free, and there are a lot of things that come up under Fun Labs that are or have been free.

You're welcome. Cornelius has the same version of Firefox I have, so I figured it was in the site settings somewhere, especially since he wasn't seeing it in both browsers while I was in FF and IE8.

I wanted to buy the Enter the Dragon DLC. Not sure if I will get any of these, is nightmare fun?


Nightmare is fun-ish. The story is fun enough to play-through, finished it in about 3 hours--it's stand-alone so nothing carries over but they give you most of the combos from the main game unlocks. I was thrown that the only way to play it is from the main screen BEFORE you see the regular menu but after the logo (trust me, it's a little weird).

can someone tell mewhich sleeping dog dlc to get if i cant get them all?


Do you want more story (Nightmare in North Point DLC), versus do you want starter-gear (Dragon Master DLC) and a handful of exclusive infinite tasks that are fun... but only help you grind stats/unlocks easier? The answer lies within you.

Damn, even more I let slip! But at least I managed to remember about a dozen in 90 seconds or so. I need to see how dumb/easy that Intel game is.

For the Dragon Master DLC, I notice you say "infinite tasks". Do said tasks give you triad experience for doing them? Maxed out the cop stats in the story, but at 85% complete, I'm not going to unlock all the triad moves before game completion.

Yes, specifically the "Triad Highway" and "Death by 1,000 Cuts" missions from the Triad Enforcer pack (in the Dragon Master Pack) are repeatable for triad experience.

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 17 January 2013 - 04:53 AM

I play it because of the friggin Famestar crap that I am a slave to right now. :wall:
The game is pretty barebone and doesn't offer a lot of variety. Kinect Mechanics work pretty well if you have room (it detects the position of your feet to decide the direction to hit the ball in). It's a pretty decent distraction for a couple of hours but you definitely won't be playing it for long....unless you're me. You may not regret picking it up for 400 msp if you have points to burn. If not I think it's more like a 200 msp game.
Multi player is pretty fun if you have a friend. Online is completely dead though. I've NEVER been able to find a truly random match online. EVER. Every week I have to schedule some matches with friends to get through the weekly challenges. Having said that, you definitely need to pick it up so I have more people to ask to play when I am in a bind. 8-)

I was already leaning on the fence towards this game, and you totally pushed me over into buying it. Will be the first thing I purchase on Tuesday.....Then the Max Payne 3 season pass(knew it was worth waiting for as it would go on sale eventually. hey it's a season pass)

Debating which Sleeping Dogs dlc to pick up considering I don't have the game yet, but eventually will. Gonna get the one with chievos at least

Major Nelson removed next week's supposed Rockstar sale from his blog post. I hope the sale still happens, because I really want the Max Payne 3 season pass.

Coincidentally (?), it was announced today that the final DLC for the season pass is also coming next week for 800 points. Could that be the reason? Maybe they realize that nobody will pay 800 for it when they could get the season pass on sale for 1,200?

Wow, I've never registered for a forum account than I just did @ the Behemoth. :lol:

BTW, just in case anyone missed the news, the "Dreamcast Collection" is currently @ Walmart for $9.06+tax with free "ship to store":
http://www.walmart.c...ox-360/15739631

Word to the wise ... if you're reading this thread, you're more on top of the Xbox Marketplace's happenings than Xbox's own Marketing. As before, yes, this is a fact.

Regarding "Max Payne 3" ... I'd safely assume there'll be a cash-grab (aka "Season Pass" on sale) on this title, plus "Borderlands 2", plus "NBA 2K12" before May if you missed anything recent. After May, when "GTA V" hits, nobody will play ANYTHING ELSE, nor will anyone spend any money on any other 2K titles if they're not playing that particular game. They also know that any other 2K doesn't stand a chance within 2 months before or after "GTA V", which is why "Bioshock Infinite" HAD to ship no later than late-March, despite how much spit & polish they're adding to give it the best shot at "Game of the Year 2013".

It's with this realization between 2K & Xbox that they now have their sale/release calendars in order, and will either do it next week (assuming nobody actually read Major Nelson's site yesterday), or they're re-organizing their promos, or some other publisher is stepping in next week ... or some combination of all 3. In any case, you know you saw it, it will eventually happen, but now there's finally market intelligence that's cognizant of the next 4 months until "GTA V".

^^^I saw you at the top of the Famestar leaderboard, but never realized that you were on CAG. I too was enslaved by Famestar for many weeks, peaking at #4 at my best point. Thank goodness I was able to break free and stop caring. Keeping my Famestar spot took up all my free time and I couldn't play anything else. I was really close to you, but knowing I'd never catch up contributed to me giving up, so I owe you a bit of thanks for that. Sucks that FS isn't displayed anywhere for everyone to see aside from the in-game LB.

I did have some fun with the Home Run Stars demo, so would pick it up for 400. Feels a lot like a flashier version of Kinect Sports baseball.

HMXHenry offered an explanation on the Rockband.com forums:

We've heard back from Microsoft confirming that the Scratch & Match promo was only partially propped. Blitz has 2 components, the game and the soundtrack, and the sale offer ID only points to the game part. We actually ran into the same problem just before Blitz launch, and they fixed it then, so they should be able to fix it now.

There may be a slight delay, but they're aware of the issue and they know that they've fixed it previously, which is all good news. I'll post when I know more.


Exciting new development! It turns out Microsoft propped an entirely unique version of Blitz (same game but with different back end data) and they're unable to link this listing with the soundtrack.

They should be pulling RB Blitz from the Scratch & Match promo shortly, and we've been told Microsoft will be contacting all affected users with replacement codes for Blitz.
