    It's 7000 gamerscore, but 6-8 hours completion per game, and each game is essentially exactly the same. You might die of boredom before completion.

    Does anyone know what is this 'FlatWarriors' game? It's been ages it's free, but no achievement list here, nor gameplay footage on YouTube, a real ghost...
    As far as I can tell, it is a free indie game with no achievements. I picked it up a while back since it was free but deleted it since I have plenty of games that do have achievements to play.
    From what I remember, this game seems always free. I can see "$1.99=>Free' all the time. Took it a long time ago, but never played. I wanted to see some gameplay, but with no luck... Until now. I rechecked, and there are now plenty, but all in the last 12 months only, whereas the game is 3 years old now. But not my kind, I'll delete it and get 26,76 Mo back. headspin

    85% off Zombie Army Trilogy? Hell yeah.

    Another game I started on GP and never finished. For that price though, I will be sure to grab it. It will probably still be way deep in my backlog though, lol.

    Any international GWG updates?
    Red faction: Armageddon is free from the Japan store

    https://www.microsoft.com/ja-jp/p/red-faction-armageddon/bwb...
    I had a quick look and the usual method of changing your location doesn't show it's free even when i'm logged in.
    Anyone else have any luck getting this to work, and therefore have any idea what I am doing wrong.

    I've taken advantage of the free in another country thing before but nothing shows up here it still wants to charge ¥ 3,750 even on the Japanese site, & I tried the Xbox One store and the Xbox marketplace and they are the same.

    Anyone got any ideas about this. Or indeed anything else going free ?

    Can anyone confirm if Cities: Skyline - Mayor's Edition contains ALL DLC? The TA sales page (Cities: Skylines - Mayor's Edition) for it doesn't list all of the DLC in the "Included DLC" sidebar, but it says it includes both Season Passes.
    IIRC it contains all the dlc from both season passes, I think only some radio statios aren't included

    EDIT: just checked my acc, the Campus Expansion and the Sunset Harbor Expansion are sold separately
    Cool...thanks!
    I'd buy a complete edition of the game if they ever issue one. Paradox seems to have a business model of continually adding DLC to their strategy games. Good for them for continually supporting their games but they usually charge a hefty price for it and it's not clear when they are done adding more content.

    100% agree.

    The Mayor's Edition's description is completely misleading too as it presents it as though it contains everything (by using the word ALL).

    To make matters worse, the DLC that isn't included (in both cases) is really expensive. I'd have been pissed had I bought a complete edition that wasn't complete.

    Commonplace in the gaming industry. The only way it will end is if they get reported to the likes of the advertising standards agency

    It is not terrible. It is a first person, turret game where you shoot down waves of enemy bunnies. I would say 2 dollars would be worth it. There is an achievement that requires you to play daily challenges for about a month, so it will probably require a bit of a grind.

    The rest of the game though is pretty fun though.

    Can confirm that First Colony edition includes everything. Source: I bought it in April or March AND listed in the choose edition in the Store on Xbox.
