    Doesn't Rare Replay have quite a few none attainable Achievements on it?
    No, they're all attainable. 107 people have completed it.
    Ah ok I just remember I was speaking to a few lads the other day and they was saying how some was none attainable, but they must of been confused with another game then :)
    There is a unobtainable in Rare replay as the game also gives you a number of 360 games and one of those is Viva piñata and in that game unless you have a "Xbox 360 live Cam" you cannot get one of the achievements.

    If I am wrong please explain why as I am not planning on starting that game unless I know I can get that achievement
    That doesn't make it "unobtainable"... It just means it requires a peripheral (and the copy of the game on the Xbox 360, which I bought in preparation of buying Rare Replay). Besides, Rare Replay is an independent game that only requires 75% of all the external Xbox 360 games to be completed. Therefore, Rare Replay does not even require this achievement. I completed Rare Replay 100% less the hardest PDZ and PD achievements simply because I don't want to get good at those two games (too many other games in the backlog for me to want to have those two bog me down). It's also worth noting that there are multiplayer achievements across the games that require help from specific people (viral achievements and the Famous Piñata achievement in VP TiP).

    With the vision camera, TiP only takes like 15 hours to complete vs the 50 hrs it might take otherwise since you can just scan in all the Piñatas you need.

    I got Rare Replay, The Final Station and the Halo Warthog for watching the E3 stream. No emails/codes - just the notifications in the top right of the Mixer website. Don't have an Xbox One yet but I've checked xbox.com and it says I now own the two games - although I can't find a link to check the Halo Warthog download - anyone got one?

    Since then I've been watching the daily streams but nothing else yet. Did anyone else receive a few bits right away and then another batch a few days later?

    Wondering if the other stuff I'm missing is going to be coming, or it that's my lot? Or if I need to start contacting Microsoft?

    Anyone heard anything?

    Rare Replay is a ton of fun, but be wary that it's a pretty lengthy completion. Plus, you'll have to spend at least a week boosting Perfect Dark Zero (yawn).
    I remember that most of those achievements is a grindfest.
    Not worth the time.

    Anyway. I owned Rare Replay on retail, but free version benefits me anyway.
    No need to insert disc anymore.

    BTW: All freebies including DLC was already on my account within 30 mins after show, and auto downloading.

    Does anyone know why there appear to be so many versions of some of the games that unlocked?

    Viva Pinata for example, has the version in Rare Replay, another version, and a third version with the "Rare Replay" heading on the title...
    In Rare Replay you see all 30 games but everything that's a N64 game or newer needs its own game you have to download to play it. So after you download the actual Rare Replay and you wanted to play Perfect Dark for example you would need to download Perfect Dark game. Then if you select Perfect Dark from the Rare Replay menu it kicks you out of Rare Replay and plays the Perfect Dark game. That's why you have two Perfect Darks, two Viva Pinata's and everything else.
    Hm... they made an extremely UNTIDY collection.

    I wish these games were sent as codes, rather than added to my account. I have no interest in any of the Rare Replay except the Viva Pinata games, which I already own, and no interest in No Time to Explain or The Final Station. Could have given it to someone that missed out.

    Already removed them all from my ready to install list and won`t be adding them to My Game Collection. Not hating on the freebies, just of no use to me.

    You win some, you lose some.
    How are you able to remove them from the "Ready To Install" List?

    Do you have to watch the whole thing? I could only "hear" the Xbox stream of it and then went to ign for the stream.
    You don't have to watch the whole thing. 5 Mins (maybe far less) is enough.

    My question is: can you get the freebies via watching these Daily Shows on Mixer.com on your PC (with Xbox account attached, of course)?

    Yeah how are people getting Rare Replay? I have watched parts of the streams for the last 3 days, & just watched it on my xbox one. I still don't see any of the games in my ready to install list.
    Same. Try going into the store and see if you "bought" them.

    As I say, I don't have an Xbox One yet either but what you say can't be right... if xbox.com doesn't say "You own this content", it won't be waiting in the ready to install/download queue section when we finally get the console.

    Good question but I suspect "yes".

    I watched the E3 show on Sunday on the website on PC and I got 3 out of 7 freebies so assume the daily shows are the same.

    Yes, i did exactly this. I watched the daily shows live on mixer.com on my laptop and got the games and DLC a few hours after the stream finished.

    With your Microsoft / Xbox Live account attached to your Mixer/Beam account, you can watch it via:

    - https://mixer.com/Xbox
    - Xbox One app (channel: Xbox)
    - iOS app (channel: Xbox)
    - Android app (channel: Xbox)

    They do not have an app for Windows or Windows Phone that I know of... yet.

    Strange, I didn't have my account linked when I watched the briefing on Mixer, and haven't caught any Daily Shows, but all the Rewards are in my Ready to Install. They were there before I linked my account aswell. Still, a nice reward for watching the Show!
    Do what you've always done. Get what you've always got.

    They all appeared in my ready to install list about an hour after I watched 5 mins of the stream on my Xbox One thru the mixer app. Watching it on your Xbox One seems to be the best way to unlock them the quickest.

    I've been catching a bit every day so far with a linked Mixer account and still haven't received anything yet.
