Shoutout to never having to buy a Val Helsing game
I know, right? All three games and Deathtrap have been free. Awesome.
Almost right, the 2nd one hasn't been offered as a GWG title yet.
Which makes me think where is everyone getting this free helsing 2

Wish I'd redeemed the other Van Helsing games when they were free.

Any other games in other regions free?

I'll have to see about getting the previous two Van Helsing games in the series before playing the third one, nice to have another Tomb Raider to play. Got all of the DLC for it years ago when I bought the Tomb Raider trilogy pack on the 360.

I'll not bother with Army Of Two later in the month since it's pretty much a dead game from what I've learned of it. Zombi I'm not exactly interested in but I guess I'll pick it up and give it a try once it's up later in the month.
I play video games, therefore I am

How is this tomb raider game? Only played the newer ones
Underworld is a very good game, but it's the end of a trilogy that consists of Legend and Anniversary. Some of the things they talk about are explained if you're just playing Underworld, but some of the more important bits of the story are not. I would honestly recommend all three.

As it appears, The Maw is free in Japan on the Xbox 360.

Van Helsing 3 seems great at first play, but I'm super confused why they start you out with only abilities mapped (no basic attack), at least as the constructor class. When I run out of mana, I can't do a thing. That's extremely odd to me.

Love when you buy a game during a sale and then it becomes the next GwG...

Tomb Raider: Underworld (JP) is not available digitally, so Japan get The Maw instead.

It has been on sale before, I picked them both up when they were 50% off.

You can get 20% off buying from Canada or Australia.

does anyone know why the picture states '4150' gamerscore? Where does the 150 come from?
Whoever puts together the GwG marketing doesn't realize Army of Two has unobtainable achievements and delisted DLC. They think you can get the full 1000 from the base game and 150 from the free DLC.
Might be hard to believe but not everyone at MS cares about achievements.

That is still a clear oversight though.
Thats like a restaurant advertising a meal + desert, but they don't offer desert anymore. Reason? Not everyone at the restaurant cares about desert.

Sad, but true.

I like your example. A group of us went out for lunch recently that was being advertised as two mains + one starter to share for $25, but when we got there they said we had to pay for the starter. So we had lunch but didn't get the starter, and at the end told them they have just lost regular business from a good size group. All because the advertiser didn't understand what the restaurant was actually offering, and the restaurant not being prepared to honour the advertisers mistake.

If Xbox take enough reputational damage though easily avoidable mistakes (claiming there is free DLC, when said DLC has been delisted), there is always somewhere else people will go.

If they don't care they shouldn't put them in their GwG advertisements.
