    Not even Crackdown 2? They keep giving us games I've already owned!

    And the free game is not Spartacus Legends! :p

    Edit - I may have jumped the gun on that one. Apparently it's already free? Sorry about that. I've never heard of the game before.

    Dead Rising would be awesome. Crackdown not so much.

    The only spanner in the works of the crackdown rumour is; Wasn't it one of about 2 games in total that didn't mesh so well with being installed to the HDD?
  • Deleted user 30 July 2013 15:45:45
    Ah OK if that happens that wouldnt be bad at all - Crackdown I will probably pass on but DR2 is something I want to play.

    @mikew1985

    Not sure about Crackdown, but Halo 3 supposedly had an issue and it's not stopping them from giving us that.

    @mikew1985

    Halo 3 also loads incredibly slow from HDD so crackdown might be possible.

    Halo 3 doesn't work well on a HD but that's coming.

    Edit yeah what they said

    @mikew1985 If memory serves, it couldn't be installed originally, but that was fixed in a patch when it became available on the marketplace.

    Yeah, I've been playing Crackdown and it installs fine after they patched it.

    Halo 3 does install as well but loads are longer but we are talking 9 secs or so difference and only affects level loads, not instant loads when you die or reload a checkpoint.

    Bungie have a nice long article about it

    I miss reading Bungie Halo news.

    Eurogamer have a comparison

    Halo 3 will probably come in October and we'll keep getting crap xbla or kinect tosh until then.

    If you want to do something badly then that's the Microsoft approach:-)

    You could buy halo 3 for about 30p on eBay.

    Well, the Crackdown and Dead Rising 2 rumours turned out to be true, which is disappointing because who the hell doesn't have the original Crackdown by now? They couldn't at least give us the sequel?!?

    Looking forward to DR2, so not all bad.

    I'm pleased about this, because I've been meaning to replay Crackdown, but there's no chance in Hell I'd walk across to the other side of my house to get the disc.

    Yeah, I lent my copy of Crackdown to a family member a while back and it's been so long that I doubt I'll be getting it back. I probably would have traded it in if I had anyway.

    I DL'd AC2 even though I played that to death as well. Doesn't hurt to have them, I guess.

    I sold crackdown for some crack ages ago so I'm quite chuffed.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

  • Deleted user 31 July 2013 17:08:41
    You also get DR2: Case Zero - Im guessing that is DLC of some sort???

    It was a XBLA style game set before DR2. Short but fun but I don't see why MS don't just release the free games together for the whole month.

    And hell seeing as they are old why not Put both Crackdowns and all DR content?

    Might be worth making a German account if you have a free 24-48 pass going[I guess they would work??] as they are getting Shadowrun and Lost Planet 2 instead due to the DR games being banned in Germany.

    24-48 hour trials don't make you "Gold", they just let you play online for that period. You shouldn't have access to Gold offers like Deal of the Weak... unless this free games thing is an exception?

    Also: that's shitty Shadowrun MP-only FPS, not this year's new RPG release, in case anyone gets excited and buys a month of Gold for it. :D

    I'd quite like Lost Planet 2, but despite being single-player in theory I've been assured that it really does need co-op partners to be a decent game, and I doubt my usual co-op buddies would be up for the hassle of making a German account and buying Gold for it.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Germany might get some other decent stuff further down the line! :)

    Quick question chaps. Any idea why on the games for gold tab it has ACII and not Crackdown yet?
    Also it wants me to pay 12 for the privilege of owning ACII. I am a gold member of course.

    I guess the UI hasn't been updated yet? Same thing often happens with DOTW and so on.

    Yeah it takes a little while to update.

    But go to GoD and look for Crackdown and its already up as free.

    Cheers chaps, that doesn't explain why MS want to charge me for ACII though, it is on the tab stating "games for gold"...

    Oh well, my daughter is on it at the mo, I will check again later.

    She is watching Grizzly Tales via Youtube, she loves watching it on the 360 for some strange reason.
