    Tried this out a bit and to remind myself of what it was trying to be a throwback to, I decided to turn on Legendary Axe 1 and 2. I immediately regretted even trying Volgarr since those old retro games are so damn good and this was such a cheap imitation. I'll play it eventually but I'm not impressed. Pretty happy with the other free games, even if I own RF:G already. Might be able to boost it now with two copies.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    Regardless of whether or not I decide to play them, I will at least be downloading these games (and probably deleting them from my drive) solely for the purpose of having them in my history. That way, should I decide to go at them at some point, they will be waiting, still "free".

    That said, I've eyed VP in the past simply for ach's, and RF because I have friends who have recommended it, mainly for plot. Both of these have been on my possible play log for some time now, and now I can have the chance to play them without spending a cent. So, that works out well for me.

    I'l be picking up both 360 titles. Like many I'll delete them and just re download when I want to play (I have the old 360 with a 60gb hard drive which fills up far too quick). I do like the service - I've got around 20 games from it since it started, so not going to complain when there's games I don't like/want/already have ?

    I really don't understand why everyone cries over free games . . . If you don't like then get off your asses and spend some money.

    You don't actually have to fully download them to get the licenses, just start the download and cancel it.

    Can I switch my region to any region for Powerstar golf and my gold membership will let me get that with my GWG? I'm from the USA.

    Have any Australians successfully downloaded Powerstar Golf? My Xbox says I can only download Chariot. And if I go to Powerstar Golf in the Store, it says it is still like $26.

And if I go to Powerstar Golf in the Store, it says it is still like $26.I was wondering the same thing. The Xbox website seems to have finally updated to offer it as a Games with Gold deal - but then tries to charge you $27 for it if you click download.

    I guess try tomorrow?

    So far I have been supportive of gwg. But now its looking like an easy cop out for MS. Id@xbox is now the gwg. At first I thought they would mix it up, I realize we can't get a free retail game every month, even though ps gets several at a time. But I really don't care for the indie crap and now that's all gwg for x1 is. that's not why I pay for xbl but this is disappointing.
    The difference between me and you? You don't think there's a difference between me and you.
