Note: I've made this post wiki editable, in case anyone wants to pretty it up or in the event this is the start of repeatable sales of some kind (similar to XBL DotW). If people care, or there gets to be more sales, I'll make sure to clean this up and make some kinda of clear organization or something. Unless someone else feel like doing it, as this is wiki editable of course!

The Windows Store is abysmal, I feel sorry for anyone trying to sell their creation, when it comes to retail functionality MS fails everytime. They just expect everyone to be masters of search, or browse through long lists, partial lists, or lists they think encompass what you're looking for. I used to think iTunes was the king of crappy UI's and the Windows 8 was born.

I would buy a few in preparating for a Windows 8 PC... Unfortunately it doesn't allow this lowly 7 user to do so.

would be nice if they had some sort of cross buy thing (ie. you get a Win8/360 version when you buy the other), so that those of use without windows 8 could get in on the sales.

Along with those deal posted it looks like iStunt 2, Gravity Guy and Monster Island are FREE right now. Not sure how long so if you are interested I would install them soon.

4 Elements II for Win 8 is actually quite good if you like casual games. Some hidden object mixed with match 3 and this version has some bonus levels and Xbox Live Achievements.

The first 4 Elements is on Steam but the second one they didn't let in for some reason so it had to go to Greenlight. The Greenlight crowd is extremely anti-casual games so the chances of it getting in are near nil.

If you have Windows 8 this as probably as low as you'll get it for.

Otherwise you might be able to catch a sale on it on Big Fish but you'd need the monthly membership for that.

updated with additional limited time offer/ad from the Windows 8 Store...ya, they are free games, but I'd rather just add them to this thread then make a new one in the free stuff section...

EDIT: well actually I'll go ahead and make a free Windows 8 store thread, since the store is awful to navigate and find such things

I'm just new to Win8 and its app store. I am logged into my laptop as a local account. I downloaded 3 free games and am wondering how it works.

Do I need to be logged in under a @live account and then it will always have these free games associated to that account. So if I use reinstall or buy new laptop I can use the same @live account and will be able to redownload all purchases?

Since I just did these free ones under a local, I assume it's not associated to anything so I lose them in future reinstalls then.

Any links to explain all this? I want to watch for free games like I do on the iOS forum and have them in my iTunes for future devices.

Thanks everyone for any help

Yes, log in using a Live account. You'll then be able to enter the store on any of your computers, right click then select "Your Apps". There, you will be able to redownload anything you have purchased (including these free apps). It's basically the Xbox DRM. If you're signed in, you can access any apps you've bought on any computer. Also, the computer you originally bought the apps on allows other Live accounts to use them too.

deals are dead, updating, but free stuff still active

EDIT: Looks like Royal Envoy is still on sale...

EDIT: Added Gunpowder...just like Gunstringer or Royal Envoy, I'm not sure if this actually is on sale or is just a price drop in the disguise of a sale...

Added, but I think its a price drop rather than a sale price, just because of how its worded in the Description and how it was $3.99 at one point in the past...  If you have a source saying its a sale, let me know.

Maybe someone here can help me out. I have a Surface RT. I downloaded Spartan Assault and I'm using a wired Xbox controller. I changed the settings in options to recognize the controller input and I can go through menus just fine, but whenever a mission starts, it won't recongize my controller anymore to do anything.

As a heads up the 12 days of Christmas start the 9th at the MS Store. Headliner for that day is a $99 Dell Venue Pro 8.

A good deal for a Windows tablet.

Ya, as I started looking into Red Stripe deals the horror of what must be done to maintain this thread set in....

 

EDIT: Whats worse is there is like no obvious to find tracker for the Red Stripe deals for Windows 8...

Apparently Bejeweled Live is now $1.99, supposedly only for Windows 8.1.  Could someone with Windows 8 only please confirm this?  Not sure if this is a sale price on its own or if the Red Stripe deals were just late to updating sale price (has happened before with Windows Phone Red Stripe sales), but whatever the case may be, its cheaper right now!

Just a warning, apparently Rayman is near impossible to get all achievements without a touchscreen (or even with).

EDIT: And no problem, expect weekly updates around Thursday, as they've added weekly deals now to Windows 8. And don't forget about my free apps thread (link in OP).

Based on how they handle episodes in W8, I would assume its just Episode 1...
