    Same old comments section as every month, someone doesn't like the games and gets jumped all over by a bunch of self righteous dicks who think they're better than them because free automatically means you have no right to an opinion on the games in their eyes.

    Games we likely don't own, but that's because they aren't very great games...

    As an Overlord fan, the second one sucks balls.

    Sensible World of Soccer for me. Memories come back as I played this on the Amiga PC of a childhood friend. Ahh, the 90's :D. I have to do the online achievements fast but should be no problem I guess. Whole game is an easy completion.

    The online is basically dead and overall the game is quite difficult...check out the solutions for some of the championships as the better you do the harder the AI is...you can dumb the AI down to 0 for the single races but once you start a championship the AI is a minimum of 50

    So it hasn't been letting me install Overlord 2. Anyone else?

    I've bought games since it went games with gold, and eveyrthing else is working, but regardless of payment method, or place I try to download it, I get a message saying it can't complete the purchase.

    I've tried downloading from here, xbox.com, on my One X, and they all fail.

    Yeah, I've been playing it multiplayer is trash and doesnt work. Everybody has to ready up to start a race and sometimes it doesn't start. Best bet is to have a boosting friend. Very rarely do races work with more than 3 or 4 people. They need to fix it.

    I downloaded Overlord 2 just fine the night it became available (from 360). I can't get the online to work though. Tried with somebody a couple times and most of the time it will freeze the entire console to the point it needs to be rebooted, sometimes it would be just the game but usually the entire console. Once or twice it just failed to hold the connection though. Tried again last night finally and exact same problems still so we both gave up after it froze both our consoles :( I'll just be doing the offline achievements and not bother with the 5 online ones I guess anymore.

    Editing to add a note! Be careful playing this game and pay attention to when achievements should unlock. I should have unlocked the gnome one earlier. The quest marked completed but the achievement never came up and I figured I'd have to redo it on my 2nd playthrough. I continued on and came to where a story achievement should have came up and it never did either. Going into a teleport I went back to forge a weapon and that didn't either. Shutting the game down and restarting it fixed the problem but over an hour of progress was lost. Just a heads up for anybody else playing, keep an eye on achievements in case yours glitches as well :( Keep multiple saves just in case. I'm glad I was...
