    Is Fez an easy Achievement completion? It looks fun to play but seems like there is too much collecting crap that might make it less enjoyable.

    Fez is rather easy to complete. Just don't get frustrated with the puzzles - look it up once you can't figure it out, and remember to think in 3D and not just what it appears to be. wink

    LOL Here we go.
    Should be 75 % off, considering the age of the game. Hopefully it will go GwG sometime, so we can reach an end to the endless hype it receives on these comment posts.

    My proudest completion, so many great secrets, so much challenge, but with enough random that you will eventually get past things you never thought possible, if you have the skill to ride a streak of good luck. I actually wore out a 360 controller mastering this game !
    Your financial solution

    Sore buns much? Hydro Thunder Hurricane has aged well and even the full price is absolutely worth it.
    There's no accounting for taste, it'd be best if everyone just respected that.

    But more importantly did anyone tell the rest of us that it is only free for 6 hours! Even a 7 day completion for that game would be some going, but with only 6 hours I wouldn't play it on your main account if I was you.

    If i change my xboxone region to Japan and download the free MAX game for Gold do i violate any xboxlive rule?
    Well if changing your account region to circumvent regional pricing (eg to get stuff for free from another region when it is not free in your region) is considered grey, then changing your Xbox One (or Windows 8 or Windows Phone) region is far less grey and many people do it, since you don't need a fake billing address. In this case Max has already been a GwG (which according to Microsoft you didn't even need to own an Xbox to get at the time), and since XB1 GwG stop working when you stop paying, I really don't think you should have a problem. But it's not what I think.
    He's not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the Underverse and returned with powers you can't imagine.

    It has been free to download and play for a week now, so six hours is not correct. I also included it would end today.

    Yeah, it's pretty obvious Holy is talking about the time you can spend in-game for free, NOT how long the game is available for free.

    I'm pretty sure you misread both of Holy's comments. RE: DA:I - Although it's free for a week you only get six hours of actual play time. RE: Max JP - He's saying that the fact Max was free previously in other regions and for those who don't even have an Xbox makes it harder for MS to argue that it's bad for him to switch regions to get the JP version now that one is free.

I started downloading it, but cancelled it because it took too long and wanted 4-6 days to play it, not 2. But if what he says is right, that 6 hours is the limit and you'll get kicked from the game, I had NO idea.

    I plan to buy the game eventually, no harm in trying and starting it now when I had the chance when I had the urge. Which was ruined by slow download.

    "but with 6 hours play" - had I known it was only 6 hours (which was probably roughly the same time the download would have been - I wouldnt even had tried.
