Even though Crackdown is a great game, this months games disappoint me. PSN gives away fairly new and good games. Glad I am switching over to PS next gen and don't pay for gold lmao

Wow, what next, Space Invaders and Pong perhaps? Why the ancient games that no-one cares for anymore.They are literally giving us all the oldest games that people aren't buying anymore... :dunce:

Space invaders has a higher value then Crackdown at this point

Game my son my copy of crackdown and was looking to buy it again so we can co-op, so I'm actually pretty happy, plus he loves zombies (as do I) so we can slay them together in DR:2, not bad for free downloads...

Awesome!  Despite how bad DR2 was compared to DR1, and how DR: OTR is better than DR2, I still enjoyed DR2.  And Crackdown 1 was awesome, Crackdown 2 was horrible.  Wish I didn't sell Crackdown 1.  Well, at least I get it again for free, and I still have the "Keys to the City" content.  


Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

I stand corrected.

Not bad.  I own both Crackdown and Case Zero.  So, just DR2 for me.

Great games for those who don't already own them. Definitely worth giving a try.

I'll download Crackdown despite having beat it many years ago and despite the fact that I'll never play it again.

Damn, wish the dates were reversed. Hate Crackdown, didn't like DR1 or Case Zero/West all that much but willing to give DR2 a shot.

Personally, I liked Case Zero a lot. I found the Dead Rising gameplay formula works better on a smaller scale.

I'm quite happy with the Games for Gold program so far, I'm getting experience in a group of games I hadn't gotten to play before!  AC2 is fun so far, can't wait to get into the meat and potatoes of it.  I have heard good things about Crackdown and I enjoyed the first Dead Rising (on Wii granted...) so hopefully these will be very fun!  Not to mention it keeps me from spending $$ on games for a while while we have crappy sales!

Does it work the same way as PS+? If you let your gold subscription lapse, do the games go away?

On Capcom's blog they mentioned Dead Rising 2 is only available as long as you have Gold. Most likely a mistake but then again this is Capcom...

 

Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero will be the two Games with Gold titles for August on XBLA. What does this mean? Well, quite simply from August the 16th if you are have a Gold subscription for Xbox Live you can download both titles for FREE during August and keep them as long as you have a valid Gold membership. Please note that as the Dead Rising titles are not available in Germany, they will be replaced by Lost Planet 2

 

Happy Zombie chopping

What are the odds? The game is ancient and you just happen to buy it now. That sucks.

Anyone know what the JP games for Gold are for next month?  I know they got different ones not ACII and not Fable 3 so just curious if they are getting something different on this again.

One nice thing about this for Crackdown 2....I can FINALLY install the game. Thanks to the old Halo 3 beta being on the disc with Crackdown, you couldn't install it.

Downloading now!  The only problem is that I still have a retail copy(still sealed I think) and the TIV is shit and a turd everywhere.

 

On the DR thing, I liked DR1 and OTR better than DR2(have it for PC) just because of the photography aspects.  Then again, I'm a photographer.


Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

"bought" it for nothing.  I beat it years ago but I'm compelled to "buy" it so that I'll own it forever and so that the developers will get paid by MS.

What are you even talking about? Crackdown, DR2 (plus Case Zero) and AC2 are all great games. Plus Halo 3 is coming as well. Really don't understand that comment.

Great Games I bought Years ago and Still Own!  

 

Its like they went through their statistics and found the games that everyone already has and decided to give those away for free.  At least they could throw a bone and give away something came out within the last 2 years.

Never played Crackdown but I have played 2 and kind of liked it. From what I am reading I should love the first one if I liked the second one.

ps plus gets games that came out last year, were over here stuck with 5-6 year old games.

On the bright side, the games that are free here are free for keep. That probably a double edge sword as companies ain't likely to put up a free to own copy of say Mass Effect 3 on this next month when compared to putting it up for free on Plus knowing it at least goes away if that expires. 

 

This is nearly as good as PS+, but at least it trying. And owning a version of Crackdown that I can install makes me very happy.
