    Meh, USA only and to redeem I would need to set up VPN to be able to download it, too much trouble roll

    Im pretty sure DLC codes are universal, also he will msg you the code so I don't think it matters where you live

    EDIT: That link is for the DLC All Fronts ONLY...so not sure what you mean by new copy

    Is Dead Island Riptide likely to become a Games with Gold title?

    I typed before seeing the link was DLC only... but as far as I am concerned, MS blocks the region and IP address so I would need to do the hard way (VPN, 2nd account) cry

    The seller says he'll only send to USA, so...

You might say its predecessor being one is an indicator but it wouldn't be a sure one. Regardless, it's up to you what's more of a issue for you: spend a few dollars then it goes free or sit it out and it never goes free.

    Bought SR IV, Gat Out of Hell, Metro 2033 Redux, Metro Last Light Redux, The Escapists and the DLC bundle for it.

    Soooo IMO easily the best DwG week since the big Christmas sale.

    Ill only be getting the Borderlands Pre Sequel Season Pass, bit of incentive to go back on the X360. Really tempted for the SR bundle, just dont know if I'll get time to play it and if it'll hold my interest. Played a fair bit of 1 & 2, 3rd I played for just a few hours

    What about these Dead Islands though? i've heard mixed things about them, are they all cell-shaded?
    Really good games, need some coop buddies though... Also alot of people complain about glitches but I never had any... Not cell shaded and a steal for 3 bucks
    Slight correction: Only Escape Dead Island is cell-shaded. A spin-off with overall bad reviews.

    Also keep in mind that you can only play Dead Island (1) coop via system link (if you wanna play couch coop; not sure if it had online coop). I can't say anything about the quality of the games, though because I refused to play when I realized it had no splitscreen.
    Right, escape dead island is cell shaded and looks terrible, dead island 1 is online coop fyi
    Aye, we left you. You're fat, and slow, and we didn't want to die.

    Anyone have any thoughts on Evolve? Not really worried about completing it, more looking for a fun co-op game thats still active.

    No one mentioned the Evolve season passes (possibly not surprising!).

    Has anyone bought them? Are they worth it?

    Screw it, picked up the Metro Redux bundle. Got both games free on 360 but have been informed that Redux is not just a graphical upgrade, so for £6 it's not really a difficult decision to make. Now I just need to work through my backlog to get to them....
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    They might make it GwG again, for example Metro 2033 has been GwG twice now, and there are some games that have been GwG as many as 6 times already!

    That all changed with the region free Xbox One and BC. If you own it, you can download it. For example I downloaded the NTSC version of Witcher 2 to my Xbox One, and I am in a PAL region.

    Promised myself I wouldn't buy myself any games until the backlog went down...

    Anyway, Escapists + DLC purchased!

    Dead Island was GwG, not Dead Island Riptide.
