    It's been long enough (how time flies) so I definitely want to play through it again.
    So, where do I sign?

    Good post, for anyone in the UK here is the link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/p/Bastion/BVVP3LXMLP85

    for anywhere else just change gb to your country (just like I did with the one the poster helpfully provided :) )
    Just an FYI - if you remove the en-gb entirely it will default to your account settings so you don't have to have "regional" links, one link is good for all.

    ie: https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/Bastion/BVVP3LXMLP85
    Life, it's funny that way.

    Damn, I completed this on the 360, but since I bought it using a friends tag, I didn't officially own it (it was tied to the xbox, not my account), so I can't get it for free.
    Ohhhh well, it was a nice game, but i'd only replay it for the easy achievements anyway

    Never even noticed this game on 360. Good chance it will be a GwG on Xb1 though. It fits the profile. Sometime next year I bet it will be. :)

    Things like this are why I use TA. There are so many short term specials out there, I could never keep track of them all.

    Are there any improvements or extra content? Or is it just an HD port?
    ^ this

    I downloaded a copy but doubt I will replay it unless there are some substantial changes to the game.
    It includes the Stranger's dream (the wave based hold out thing, but telling some backstory on the narrator) and Score attack mode. Both of which are I believe new compared to the 360 version, where they were PC DLC only I believe. So nothing major but it looks better than I remember it so they may have updated the visuals.

    I could have sworn I owned this on the 360, but it's not showing up free for me. I must be mistaken. Haven't played it, but I own a lot of games I haven't played yet. Large backlog.

    Edit: Yup, verified that I don't own it. Purchased it for 360 and was able to download both! LOL

    I've played and finished this on the 360, yet don't own it apparently. I don't have other people putting licenses onto my console, so I don't know how it happened...I thought I was getting a free game cry
