may want to note only some levels are free for Cut The Rope. Unless they changed that.

Nice topic though. Few I missed.

Ya, I think Samurai vs Zombies maybe released recently, as I hadn't noticed until I made this thread. And thanks for mentioning Shuffle Party, I had saw the ad, but didn't notice it was an "Xbox" game.

Nice thread! I amazingly have them all that are currently free, but didnt know about only a few levels are free on Cut the Rope so it's great to have it pointed out. Also love the "Previously Free" section to see what I missed out on. Good job!

So let me get this straight. They have begun calling games for Windows 8 tablets and computers "Xbox" games? Something doesn't seem right here.

It's their new branding. Pretty shit IMO.

It's an easy way for them to make money off all the people who care about having big achievement scores as the Xbox moniker means it has achievements that tie to your Xbox account.

Thanks, glad this thread wasn't a waste/bad idea!

Do it! I was very skeptical about Windows 8, but that Media Center fiasco made me jump on it faster, and I've never looked back. It was a huge improvement and I've really gotten accustomed to the new changed...albeit somethings are pretty annoying, overall its an improvement.

Makes me long for GFWL, lol

I find it ironic you say this, as the main point of this thread is pointing out the free games...:lol:

Thanks for compiling the list - I have all of the current ones, but missed out on the previously free ones.

Also, I think Pinball FX2 comes w/1 free table doesn't it? I truthfully haven't checked it out yet, but I thought that is what I read.

There is also a link the the OP

I thought so too, will check and update OP info

EDIT: It comes with Mars by default included with it

EDIT 2: Just because I can, I added the only web based game with achievements...hey, it runs on Windows 8 :lol:

Doritos Crash Course Go is technically free for now anyways. Download the trial and its the full game with achievements and all.

Verified, updated OP with the information;...wonder if any other games have this workaround?

there was similar thing with Rocket Riot, but they probably fixed it. I wonder for how long we will be able to get achievements in trial version. I don't want to start the game and later won't be able to finish it without buying
