Glad I refrained from buying Dishonored in that marketplace sale! Was debating it but glad it will be free. Crimson Dragon is OK, Strike Suit boring, & Motocross is fun

That stinks, where a the new gold free games!
And it looks like next month we'll get 2 new games on xbox one, too. Both CD and SSZ are free until August 31, according to the announcement.
I mean next next month* (September)
Dishonored is a poor choice for a GWG.. nothing against the game but if the DLC isn't on sale, they'll be scamming players that wish to purchase the full experience.
$5, $10, $10 for the 3 dlc, Dishonored Game of the Year edition is $20 on Amazon and comes with all that + the Arsenal DLC (with no achievements)
^ poor choice for customer but good choice for MS lol, those greedy bastards
It also opens up the idea that Fallout 3 and Borderlands may be free some day in the future. Great games but very limited value to most people
Crimson Dragon is a pretty good free game. It was pretty good once I understood the game. Agreed, Strike Suit is a sleeper... Literally.
Really happy about strike suit. I always buy games on sale, so I love it when a game goes free before it goes on sale!
Good games this month. Motocross Madness has very annoying collectibles though. Never heard of Dishonored but will try it out.
^never heard of dishonored? Do you use the Internet once a year?
Awww. At least I don't have Dishonored.
Lol I literally JUST bought strike suit zero like 2 or 3 days ago. I should be like the internet and be all "WAAAAAA! It's free now! I should get a refund this is BS!
Internet will always be internet :)
Is it true gwg will stop on december?
it wont stop unless playstation is stoping
I was debating whether or not to buy crimson dragon & strike suit zero I'm so glad I didn't buy them
This game reminds me so much of Zelda and DAMN thats awesome!
Fantastic game. Recently played through it again on the JP version. Have fun!

Agreed! Darksiders 2 is also great. Really hope we get more of these one day
I love how large some of the puzzles were.
Yeah got the sequel on sale as well
Look up the elevator glitch now and avoid it. I'm not sure if they patched it since I played the game, but it's a game breaker if they haven't fixed it.
^ Thankks for heads up

From 200 to 400 to 1000. Also, for retail, it will be cool to see when Halo: The Master Chief Collection comes out with 4000G!
Ya BC a guy on twitters say that I'm gonna believe you lol.
He is a trustworthy source dude. He is right 95% of the time when it comes to XBLA news / info.
Or maybe 99.9999% :P
Ya IDC its the whole said she bs. Unless MS comes out and says that twitter and Facebook speculation don't mean dick lol.
Great. The devaluation of gamerscore on the Xbone wasn't enough. Now we have stackable hour long games like sixty minute completion.
Sorry, meant to say stackable 1000g games. I had no problems doing lococycle twice for 1400G and will do valiant hearts and contrast for 1400G. 2000G is just too much!
So then xblas shouldnt be classed as such anymore. only reason they were classed like that was because of lower gs.
I was under the impression the Masterchief collection was XB1 only
I wish GS would be more based on game length (1-100 hours) and replay-ability (Multiplayer, mode variations, etc.).
Policy changed back in April. Titles entering certification after April should have 1000G.
Not sure how I feel about this.
@shadow ok wheres the proof plz.
Yoda - I don't need proof. If you knew me, you'd accept it.
Dang K4rn4ge, what would your gamerscore be if all arcade games were 1000 from the start?
as for devaluation of gs, 200gs for some arcade games is much longer than 1000 in avatar, the argument is void right there. easy/fast 1000s have always existed
@shadow idc I want proof and that's not an unwarranted thing to ask. I'm not trying to being an asshole to you but come on dude, would you believe me if I said..
@Bond, they are going to be changing things around on TA - I can't discuss further since its a private thread I was invited to by TA staff but changes are a' comin
MS/developers are milking people on xbla purchases at $15 to $20 a pop lol.
I dont give a shit about what TA thinks. They go against MS all the damn time thinking they own xbl. Im talking about the system
Devaluation of gamerscore?? Lmao please do explain to me. I was unaware of any inherent value. I thought they were just arbitrary numbers that were fun to collect.
@dejected Thats an interesting thought lol.
The system is very stable. Arcade games out in droves as easy 200/400 pointers . There's the occasional quick 1000g game every 2-3 months.
With arcade games on both the 360 and the One having 1000g we're gonna have a new quick game an average of every week or two.
Especially when you factor in we're gonna have 1000g in two versions of the same 5 hour game.
I still don't see the "value" in gamerscore existing, let alone decreasing. Why do I care if someone wants to play the same shitty 5 hour game twice?
ok.... xbla are all easy 200/400 pointers. keep dreaming
They will be more gamerscore rich than me? Sounds terrible. If only my gamerscore was worth more!!!
Everyone on this site sees some value in the system. I'm sure there is some change to the system that would devalue the reason you value it.
I don't think that all arcade games are easy. I do believe that quick arcade games come out at a greater frequency that quick retail.
Nah, I don't really care. I just like to play games and I think of achievements merely as proof that I completed whatever pointless task I felt like completing.
I could care less about the gamerscore values of each game. I just care about the satisfaction of a completion.
What about arcade games like perfect dark? Easily longer, more involved, and more difficult than many retail games and only worth 200 Gs.
All I said is I believe there are more easy arcade games released than retail. I never denied there were hard arcade games.
No, you are saying that games like perfect dark don't deserve to have 1000 points because a high percentage of arcade games are easy.
Yoda - You're asking for documentation that any developer that wants to keep his job wouldn't reveal. Sorry man.
Imagine if they went back and converted all xbla games to 1000 GS retro. I'd go from 100k to over 300k gamerscore. That would be crazy!
and I believe there are a ton more shovelware easy retail games than arcade games. cuz really.. Wall-E needed a Korean version
As for 1000g arcade games.... well.. I'd love to see more arcade games come out period. The well seems rather dry on the 360 side
^ I completely agree on easy games. Way more easy retail than xbla. Most xbla games seemed to take longer than your average retail.
@shadow they'd loose a job for confirming a policy exists as showing proof of it. ok..
Agreed on retails being easier. Sort the all games page on Ta by lowest ratio and just look at all those retail games ;)
According to the quick and easy arcade list on x360a there are 138 under 5 hour games including delisted ones. That's not including windows 8 and windows phone
Which would bring that number up to 250-300. On the flip side there are 52 under 5 hour retail. With 13 requiring a foreign box.
According to who? I could complete geometry wars right now in under 5 hours. Can you?
Ratio != length or difficulty. Sensible World of Soccer, Shrek and Roll, Zeit2, Spyglass board games and about 30 others took me under 5 hours and have. 1.5 or higher
Ratio. I could give you the full list but don't want to spam his feed.
I know a person that it took days to beat zeit2. It is based on skill level.
No I couldn't. Both threads are very generous with there times for newbies. They removed Crazy Taxi which was a joke for being too hard.
It's hard to argue that a 70 game difference can be attributed to difficulty. I don't get the argument here though.
I agree arcade games can be harder than retail. Many are. I just believe due to the nature of arcade games being bite sized downloadable the achievements list tend to be
Im done here. This argument is going to go around in so many circles then just fizzle out when everyone is bored....
For games that are supposed to be $40-$60 on release, I'd certainly hope that it would give more than 5 hours of content. Doesn't seem right to compare them at equal hrs
I agree bond. I think we are all agreeing here, but arguing the things we are agreeing on. I don't get it...
All I can say is that I'm really looking forward to more 1000G XBLA releases (not on the One)! I think it's about time we get more GS reward for our efforts.
Yeah, I am already bored. Some people just need to be unhappy about something all the time. I am going to go play some games and have some fun.
the main difference between retail & arcade is the size of the game arcade's are usually 3gigs & under retail 5gigs & up
You'd be surprised how many retail games are under 2 gigs.
I would argue that arcade games are likely quicker to complete due to the fact that only have 12 achievements instead of 50...
^ They used to have only 12 but many arcades now have around 20-30+ achievements. Also, less achs doesnt necessarily mean shorter/quicker, they just reward you less often
^That is all definitely true. Just on average, it is easier to get 12 things than 50 things. And number of achievements only recently increased when the gamerscore did.
Hopefully that ends up meaning that arcade games can start to have 50 achievements too if they become worth 1000gs.
Regardless of how much they should be worth, I like a little consistancy in my list. And not being able to see which ones are arcades is not okay for me.
what about wp & win8 will those stay at 200G
Can always count on K4's feed for some entertainment. Anyway, as someone who doesn't care much about standard gamerscore, I'm a bit sad that 200g and 400g games will be
Fading away. While due to the over saturation of DLC some games are going to ridiculous levels. Wish it could go back to the old days of 1,000g/200g; 1250g/250g with DLC.
