    I guess getting an Xbox (2001) game is just gonna be a monthly thing until they run out, huh? Well at least there's only 41 that can be given out and I own like 10 of them from GWG already.
    yea but that means there are 31 months of this left.... I don't want to wait 2.5 years for them to run out of original Xbox titles... LOL
    I wouldn't mind seeing Ninja Gaiden Black, Jade Empire or KOTOR 1 and 2 being given away with Games with Gold. I was hoping this would happen actually.

    I never had a OG Xbox so I don't mind getting these games.
    I have the same sentiment on those OG Xbox games. I missed that generation completely so it is nice that I can access them with GWG and BC.

    Xbox plans to add to the BC list on the Xbox Series consoles so expect that OG Xbox list to grow.

    Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy was a great game...but I can't imagine it holds up well. I've been tempted to get in on the Switch because the graphics have been improved somewhat...

    Solid games, but I already have Costume Quest and Slayaway Camp. Maid of Sker I guess has potential, so good month over all (for people who don't have most of these games).
    At some point they'll run of OG Xbox games and actually have to put two 360 games out there. Hopefully that happens before they kill off the GWG program.
    This space for rent.

    It's not 2250 if the DLC for CQ doesn't come for free.

    On a different note, looks like a proper GWG month in my books.

    To be honest I'm happy we get OG Xbox games. When I was young I only had a few games for my Xbox but read about a lot of other games I wanted to play. I know these games don't cost much now but I rather get these than some no name indies I never play. BC is a great thing, hopefully MS continues to expand the OG library.

    I'm excited for the people who haven't played Costume Quest! Suuuch a fun little game. Filled with charm and I love Halloween, so I fell in love with it. laugh Wish the DLC would go on sale... Might just grab it full price for Halloween.

    Has anyone noticed we don't own a licence to Armed And Dangerous? Usually the OG Xbox and 360 games we get to keep outright as if we bought them, unlike the Xbox One games that only allow you to play while you have an active Gold account.

    Armed And Dangerous is an OG Xbox game but the stores says you can only play as long as you have a Gold membership.
    You need to claim the game from the old store if you want ownership.

    Thanks, I just popped the old Xbox 360 console on and bought it from the Marketplace. So I guess there are two workarounds. Kinda annoying but at least there's a way to still claim ownership of it.
    Is this the case for every OG Xbox game? If so I've been doing it wrong,
    No, just since the new store was released (I'm in Alpha preview and don't know if the store is widely available yet). All my previous OG Xbox GwG show up as owned.

    Maid of Sker came out in July 2020 and its a good horror game.

    No! No! God no! Please not through the website! It is the most painful thing to do! It never works properly!

    Maid of Sker and Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut look pretty good and not too long either.

    I know the Xbox Originals aren't popular around here, but I'm so excited to see Sphinx! I thought Armed and Dangerous was the dose of nostalgia I needed, but Sphinx has such a close place in my heart; not sure how well it'll hold up, but maybe that long-awaited sequel will be on the cards sometime soon (I've been watching closely since the remaster on PC). Now I just need Brute Force and Stubbs the Zombie!

    The DLC was on sale November 2018. I bought both the main game and DLC then. I've seen the base game on sale a few times since but don't think I've seen the DLC on sale since then. I'm starting the game finally this coming month and looking forward to it. Don't know why I put it off so long!
