    It's that moving between the lights bit in gears 1 I remember most about the trilogy. IMO the sequels didn't shake it up enough.

    I played through all three fairly recently, and Gears 1 was certainly the most memorable in single player, and is probably the best paced of the three as well (albeit chapter 4 seemed a bit of a slog)

    The MP was already pretty dead by the time I first played it in around 2009, but I guess there'll be an influx of new people around next month for a few weeks at least. Having said that, from the little I played it was always much weaker than the Gears 2 MP (my favourite version) anyway

    A reminder that the new freebie, Shoot Many Robots is now up.

    Doubt I'll even bother queueing this one up then deleting it straight away...

    They really should give MVC2 and 3 away for free seen as they are getting removed from the store soon. I doubt capcom would let them though. Capcocks.

    But they're being removed due to Capcom losing the Marvel license (which, due to relatively low sales, they have no wish to renew). I don't see why they'd then give them away for that.

    It'd be nice to at least see them do a "best of the early generation" XBLA series - Geometry Wars, Braid, that sort of thing. I mean, it aids rediscovering good older XBLA games.

    I dunno about that, I spent way more time playing Gears #1 Multiplayer than Gears #2.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    You'd think they'd learn from the backlash over the 20p birthday present.

    I swear to god Microsoft, when you do this, you make me hate you even more than if I got NOTHING.

    Actually like most others I have "purchased", marked for download, cancelled, deleted (otherwise it reserves the full space even if you cancel), then never looked back for every single fucking "free" game so far. So in real terms, I have got nothing. Except disappointment. And a little unnecessary effort every 15 days.

    Why would they do something like that, that would be treating their customers with something other than utter contempt. There's still pennies to be milked from those good older games.

    Throw more mediocre shit that came out in 2006 on the Games for Gold!
    I'd argue that's exactly what they've been doing for the most part.

    Gears 1 / Halo 3 / AC2 / Dead Rising 2 / Crackdown / Fable 3 are the sorts of releases you'd expect from 'Best of early generation', to which everyone on games forums loudly screams 'but I've already got it' only with more swearing

    Magic 2013 / Iron Brigade / Clash of Heroes / Defense Grid are highly regared niche XBLA titles and everyone screams 'What is this shit, never heard of it'

    Perhaps you could reverse this system and instead give away Braid / GW2 / Peggle as 'best of early generation' and Nier / Singularity / Enslaved as niche retail games, but I'm not sure that would be any better regarded really?

    The problem isn't that the games they are offering are 'mediocre shit' (the current title from 2012 is probably the only one matching that description), it's that the PSN offering is obviously so far superior that even the most ludicrous of fanboys have stopped trying to claim otherwise, and by making this offer, MS have constructed themselves another PR disaster, when they'd actually have been better off not setting themselves up in a competition they were only ever going to lose in the first place.

    Tested out Shoot many robots and even for free its SHIT. Maybe not on this forum but there was people saying "FFS its just like metal slug, everyone liked that buy it!!!" Its like metal slug but the opposite of the great gameplay of M.S. SMR is just throws loads of enemies and they take quite a few hits and you get swamped

    Also it feels like you need to pay for micro-transactions for a better experience and to get the better weapons and equipment

    Japan is getting Just Cause 2 next. Hoping that's a worldwide offer.

    Just Cause 2 is a lot of fun. Worth full price and possibly the best free game yet if it is the one they choose for the EU.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    japan tends to get different games for some unknown reason, eg they got Halo wars instead of halo 3 iirc (HW is better game) Wouldn't mind Just cause 2 but knowing MS it will be perfect dark zero

    Deleted that fucking shit "shoot shitty robots" the final straw: there was a weapon and armour I needed to do some better damage and better defence and it was locked behind a micro-transactions because they game wouldn't let me have it yet. despite having a higher level than the gun/armour. Fuck the developers and publishers for making such a shitty game with gross M.T.

    It's a fallacy that all Games with Gold titles are that old anyway.

    Despite the nickname Games with 'Old?

    Well, at least Deal of the Weak is 100% accurate.

    Sleeping Dogs for free, huh? I think I might take MS up on that offer. I liked the demo but all the talk from players about bugs forever put me off buying the game at full price.

    Guardian of Light I've already got, someone at Eidos gave me a redeem code for it when it was originally released (the joys of being a TRF member \o/).

    Nice! I had SD but I sold it a while ago. Didn't have time to play it then. This is a really solid offering. Maybe they actually will put some effort to program in 2014 :)
