First gold game I got was GOL thanks Xbox for the repeat, I guess that’s what happens when you run out of 360 titles to give away

Are you kidding me with the repeats? They still have plenty left on 360:

AC: Rogue, Brotherhood and Liberation that were never GWG, FC 3 and 4, Watch dogs 360, Dead Island Riptide, Disney games, EA games, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Lego games, etc

That is just off the top of my head.....
And many of those you listed are not BC yet, so would not be eligible for a GwG yet. Still there are a lot of games they could have offered in place of a repeated one, even a few you mentioned.
I don’t think you understand how this works. The games that are chosen for GWG are made back compat, it’s not a requirement the other way around
I understand perfectly how it works. I also know that no more BC games are being released at this time of year due to the holiday break given to MS employees hence my statement. If not already BC then they won't make the list for January games, common sense there bub.

Seems I know more regarding the situation than you do.
I mean honestly, and I'm sure many here would agree, I think I'd rather them make exceptions to the "must be BC" rule than make exceptions to the "no repeats" rule.

But still not really complaining, because Celeste is worth it enough for me (as I own all the others).
Fear is the mindkiller.

How crazy is the FC2 completion? Is it an easy boost? Just curious what I am getting into. Thanks.

Very much looking forward to Celeste.

Also excited for the ratio bump for Far Cry 2. That game is super grindy (both SP and MP); I assume most people won't complete it...

Yikes. None of these look particularly good to me. Celeste looks like yet another retro platformer, I'm terrible at driving games, and GOL is utter garbage for a SECOND TIME. It started fun, but then the controls were awful and the time trials so infuriating. It kept the timer going while forcing you to watch preset cut scenes and actions. It was a proud and relieving moment to delete that heinous game from my harddrive. Far Cry looks the least annoying...but thats not saying much.

They've far from run out, they haven't even given every first party game yet.
My favourite colour is red

Servers are very unreliable now, which is the biggest problem. If you can double box, then it's quite easy (After you've got the 16 player achievement and a couple of 3 player boosts). If you're looking to do it with someone else, it would be a royal pain.
No God, know fear. Know God, no fear.

Other regions have gotten regions when whatever it is hasn't been available there, usually in Asia.

But I'm getting Celeste, so I don't care about a double on GoL.

Is Lara Croft the first time they've repeated a GWG title in Europe/North America?

Someone did a nice write up breaking it down earlier in the thread, but the short answer is yes.

Either Lollipop Chainsaw is getting a re-make or I'm never going to see this game on the One.

The new Xbox is coming out in less than 2 years. Do you really think that they were going to keep pumping out 360 games forever? For me, I'm never starting a new 360 game again.

Great month!

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is not available in Brazil though. If they can't license it this time again they will give another game. Underworld probably.

Is the Tomb Raider game split screen co-op or is it online/system link only? Ugh, and it is better than that Underworld one? I didn't like that one :(
It's a twin stick shooter with some platforming.
Well, actually a platformer with some twin stick shooting haha
You will love it! wink It's a great game.
The coop is on the same screen, with 2 diferent characters. You also can download more characters for free or purchase others.
