    I would if it was the original Dead Rising!

    ... it'll be nice if we had a 'Rare' month in which Viva Pińata and Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts was available. I bet that may well happen although they shall throw in Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo: Elements of Power instead.

    Well I'm enjoying Crackdown as much as the first time.The only real issue I have is that you have to download the titles in a limited window, why not forever, go to GOD pick Halo 3 and download, no fee.

    Don't believe you at all. There are far too many decent games to be playing without wasting time on old and mediocre games because you got them for free! But maybe you play more that I do.
    I know where your coming from with this.

    I didnt download Fable 3 and wont bother with Crackdown either - Ill never get round to playing it. Dont even get enough time to play the games I want to play!

    DR2 though Im a bit more keen on so will give that a bash.
    And, christ alive, other people will play them!

    My gf for one was very pleased with Fable III.

    @DUFFMAN5 You only have to 'purchase' them in the window. You can download them whenever you like.

    Hi mate
    I know, but I still think they could have just made it "free" all the time for Gold

    Yeh but then someone could get a 1 month subscription and download Ł150 worth of free games all at once, then bugger off for his Ł5 or whatever. (With games with gold you keep the games forever unlike ps+).

    Of course, there's only been a few games on it so far, but this could easily happen 6-12 months down the line.

    But they dont want someone getting all the games on a month's gold membership do they?

    Edit: Beaten to it.

    It's an incentive to maintain a gold sub, if they were free all the time people would just buy a month of live at the end of the year and download everything.

    Edit. Beaten to it as well.

    you don't have to actually download them to benefit from the offer.

    Queueing them on the site, then immediately deleting it from the queue works fine, and it then shows as 'purchased' for ever.

    I've done that with Fable on the off chance I might want to play it, but doubt I ever will...

    I had totally forgotten just how much fun Crackdown was. I remembered i loved it, but Orb hunting is still as addictive as ever, and oh boy, the sound they make is still almost Pavlovian in the response I feel. :)

    Downloading the keys to the city dlc again, since my save worked, so I have fairly high powers after reaching the end of the game, but no-one to biff the heads of.

    I think it might be a late night tonight.

    I would enjoy Crackdown but the shooting mechanics are awful, like PS2 era GTA games

    They get better as you level up. Still not perfect but enjoyable enough IMO.

    I thought I should change the thread title really.
  • Deleted user 28 August 2013 14:33:37
    It really is quite poo. So close to buying it so many times and now that I have it I'm so glad I didn't fork out any beans for it.

    *shrug* I really liked it, basically fixed all the things that annoyed me about the first game (overly strict time limits, survivors being absolutely useless at defending themselves) and added in fun combo weapons. It was good enough for me to enjoy it again when Off The Record came out as well.

    I imagine it's turd in single player, but a great laugh in mp. Any news on September's game?

    Nothing yet.

    DR2 is OK from what Ive played just starts slow. Does the psychopaths timer only start counting down once you meet them?

    I like the dead rising games although it can a bit unfair when you run in to psychopath with cheap attacks

    If the next game was good, MS would have announced it already

    They're going to post every Gold subscriber a scratched-up beyond use copy of that demo disc that came with the PS1 that had the interactive T-Rex on it.

    For a game that cost me fuck all, I think Dead Rising 2 is pretty good. I feel sorry for the saps who went out and bought it though, especially if they bought it full price. My only complaint is the loading times and the fact Chuck can be a bit clunky and slow.
  • Deleted user 29 August 2013 10:10:51
    Stingray was way better than the T-Rex!

    Yeah, it does load every three seconds...

    And for the next game, didn't they originally announce Halo 3? That hasn't been done yet, right?
    It'll be that or Bully (seeing it was on sale)...

    Major Nelson said he'll announce the month's two free games on the last day of the previous month - so September's games should be announced on Saturday.

    Unless it's "working day" in which case I guess it'll be tomorrow?!

    Found a rumour that says Magic 2013 will be our next freebie.
