    Five weeks. More than 25,000 gamerscore.

    Popularity is not a measure of quality, but a measure of how idiotic that thing's following is.

    I won't be missing any pool parties, also seeing as I'm in Australia we'll probably be getting 5 of those 25. It's kinda disappointing because there are often a few gems in these indie games.

    I dont understand. What happens after those dates? Is there a rebate or something if you buy them all like usual?

    this makes no sense to me why are they doing this if MS don't care about ID@xbox after all if they did they would add a tab to the store so you can find them maybe MS should do before adding any ID@xbox games I olny know of ID games 3 are mentioned here the other one is pier soalar.

    This one of many things that tick me off with MS and xbox one also why are they no trials for these ID games I am not paying for a game I might liike because the developers won't put out a trial

    Remember Rare replay is 10,000 GS alone.

    These are 18 of the titles I could make out:
    Mega Baseball
    Submerged
    Squid Hero
    King's Quest
    Blues and Bullets
    Rare Replay
    Penarium
    Don't Starve (Finally!!!!)
    Commander Cherry
    Q.U.B.E
    Bridge Constructor
    Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
    Extreme Exorcism
    Swindle
    Whispering Willows
    Octodad
    Toy Soldiers
    World of Tanks

    So excited for don't starve, binding of isaac, rare replay, and the exorcism one. Who said XBOX isn't devoted to indies?

    Lovably is not what I define Goat Simulator. Absurd, yes.
    I hate EA with a passion. I also hate unobtainable achievements, they should always be automatically unlocked if game servers go down.

    QUBE and Binding of Isaac were released last week, so are probably not a part of Summer Spotlight. However, Magic Origins is, and is supposedly due out on Friday.

    Octodad, The Bridge, Rare Replays, and more games to get. After getting all of these games, my wallet will empty than my head. But great to see all these games come out.

    EnjoyableCoffee said:Lovably is not what I define Goat Simulator. Absurd, yes.In my review, I actually echoed this sentiment, but it is a favorite among many. It was a top-selling game for a few weeks after it hit Xbox One.

    Spotlight on Winter if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, and considering probably less than half will make it to Australia, you will indeed need a spotlight to find them.

    Huh?! Are you upset that Microsoft is offering a tonne of games? I guarantee you will be able to find these titles in the online store...in fact, you can find many things in there.

    Glad I didn't buy Bridge Constructor on Steam smile. When I have a choice, I prefer playing on console.

    Their isn't a tab because their was on the 360 and it was ignored by most. Their are quite a few games in the program that you probably know of but just don't know that they were apart of it. Half the games with gold come from the program.
