I have that issue (bought a copy just for the theme) and I didn't have to play any demos or do anything to install the theme and gamerpics.

Edit: Also, the Condemned, PGR4, and OXM Universe themes wouldn't have been premium since the NXE update wasn't released until November 19, 2008.


Any chance I could borrow that disc off you? I could offer you a Borderlands free-theme disc that we could either just keep, or trade back.

Geez, if they're going to start doing reruns, they could at least make it worthwhile by offering the Orange Box gamer pics again (if the alternative is not running any at all), and this time including all the ones they forgot but that the UK OXM managed to put out. Plus, there are the L4D2 gamer pics as well.

This is the last night for that 2 years for 1 deal at Amazon, and I'm *still* on the fence about ordering, just because I'm most interested in the exclusive gamerpics and themes, and it's starting to look like they might just drop it entirely. (Though digging through the OXM image urls when I was posting all those, it appears there are SSFIV gamer pics coming up next...if it doesn't end up being another UK OXM only thing.)


Yea, I can confirm that there is no bonus content on disc 110. There are 3 'classic' demos included though... :drool:

I did end up getting in on the B2G1 year subscription offer via amazon. My current subscription just ended this month too so it was timely. I am a bit worried that the days of getting some good stuff on the OXM discs is coming to an end. Not sure we are getting any exclusive first look demos or DLC any longer. I guess as long as they keep giving us premium themes and gamerpics that isn't a bad deal but we'll have to see if those keep coming.

I have a couple discs that show as unreadable in my 360. Wasn't there a trick to get these to work? Possibly putting the disc in boiling water for a few seconds or something? I thought someone posted that was a method that worked.

Issue 111's disc supposedly has some classic Street Fighter gamerpics. Haven't had a chance to get it in the 360 yet but I'll post if it has anything else.

They're actually Super Street Fighter IV pics-- T. Hawk, Dee Jay, Makoto, Ibuki, and Juri.

Finally got my first issue from the Amazon subscription (was starting to get nervous). Geez, I didn't realize these things were so thin...I think if I were paying more than $1 per issue or whatever, I'd feel a little ripped off.

It looks like #112's gamerpics are Dead Rising 2. I'll update the thread in a little while.

What pics are used in 112? I cancel my subscription and they send SSF4 pics and dead rising 2 pics.=/

Updated to show the pics. I hope these brightly-colored-backgrounds aren't a new continuing theme.

Looks like you can get some of these discs off Goozex but the range from 100-450 points it seems. Not worth it for free themes and gamer pics.

Lame. I thought that the premium themes would be a standard for the issues when they first started, those stopped, then we got pretty weak gamerpics and now those seemed to be stopping...sheesh!

Fuck...that's it. Once subscription is done, I'm out. Though I think I have 2 years left :wall:

Yea, nothing at all on the last two discs. Funny how this started shortly after amazon had that buy 2 years for the price of one deal on OXM and some other gaming mags. Oh well, I have about 18 more months left so hopefully things will pick up again before I have to make a renewal decision.

For anyone that cares, I hit up OXM via Twitter and asked if they were going to be bringing back the Premium Themes, and Gamperics, and I also asked about the possibility of avatar gear:

OXM: @LinkinPrime Don't worry! November issue has PvZ gamer pics and December will have...Halo: Reach gamer pics! (about 16 hours ago from HTC Peep in reply to LinkinPrime)

I never noticed this thread before. I usually just throw the demo disc away without even putting it in my 360. I need to remember to check this thread to see if there's anything cool on it.

Or, you know, the disc...

Nah, checking this thread would take 30 seconds less. :)

I never check the disc anymore, because there hasn't been anything on it I want in a long time. The premium themes they had last year were the last things I was interested in. So, I've just given up on the disc. Next time I renew my OXM sub, I probably won't do the disc.

December 2010 disc (#116) came in today. Has 5 gamerpics of Noble team from Halo Reach (no Noble Six). They aren't showing up correct from Xbox.com yet

Issue also had a nice Assassin's Creed advert that was made to like a brochure for "Rebuilding Trust With Your Friends After Plying Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Multiplayer"

My first issue was the Reach cover, second issue was Gears 3. Did they skip out on sending me an issue?

I want my damn PvZ pics :bomb:

It's weirding me out that this months avatars *still* are not showing up properly through Xbox.com (so I can't yet post them in the OP). Did the new Xbox.com redesign really break things this badly?
