Nice, I’ll be downloading them right away.
Thanks so much!
iStunt 2 is really really fun. Nice to see that it’s free!
iStunt 2 is really really fun, definitely pick it up!
Got them both on WP and my Windows 8 PC. now i will probably never play them.
Are these permanently free? Unfortunately I don’t have W8 at the moment so I can’t buy them.
Till April 17th. They’re all free on Windows Phone 8 too. iStunt2 is awesome.
Fragger is free, too.
No Fragger on Win8, only on Windows Phone…
It’s worth mentioning that these games (along with Fragger) are currently* free for Windows Phone as well.
*At least they were when I got them yesterday…assume it’s still going.
Available for OS X?
Thanks Major! I’m downloading them on my laptop right now.
Why won’t these work with Windows 7?
why not give xbox users free games like these? is it that hard to port the games over?
You want them to translate touch controls/keyboard to controller, improve the graphics and resolution and change all relevant coding just to then give it away for free? I can’t possibly imagine why they wouldn’t do that…
These games are like miniclips games not a big deal really
They’re also on Windows Phone 7/8 plus Fragger is free on those too.
Own them on the surface RT can be quite challenging at times
All 3 are free untill the 15/04/2013 on the WP and W8
You should have tried hard to make Games for Windows Live work and be more accepted, Microsoft. This new program doesn’t cut the mustard. And please don’t sunset the program and leave me with achievements I can never earn.
There is also the old Solitaire, Minesweeper and Mahjong. Along with one of my faves – Jetpack Joyride. All free and all give achievements.
you made a better pitch than Major did lol
What? Drivers aren’t MS’ responsibility, nor do they build firewirecards/controllers. Blame your firewirecard manufacterer… also, use a firewire to firewire cable. Skip usb in your case.
laptops stopped including fire-wire ports, that is why people have to use Firewire to USB cables. from what I have read on the internet, MS has chosen not to support firewire in Windows
If I download the games will be mine forever or until April 15?
