Xbox 360, Xbox Live By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Xhawk27

    One thing about these Gold games is if you cancel your subscription later on you get to keep playing these games. Unlike some other service.

    • slasaru

      We AGREE in our clear and sober mind to have games rented! Because we have xbox live subscription at all times anyways

    • Lloytron

      Hooray! We get to keep games that nobody wants to play anyway. Whooo!

    • Limbonik

      Unless you delete them, even once. If you delete them from your Xbox 360 for ANY REASON AT ALL you can never download them again for free; unless it’s still w/i the same 2 week period said game is up for grabs.

      Unlike any purchases you make thru the Marketplace that you can download over and over again forever. I hate to say it because I’ve been a devoted Xbox/Microsoft fan and haven’t owned a PS2 or PS3 but the more I see of their Plus membership, the more my faith in Microsoft dies.

      • tabicat

        Limbonik: you are just plain wrong. Once a game is purchased, it can be downloaded again as many times as you like, forever. This is true even if the game is no longer available.

        • Limbonik

          If that’s the case it isn’t myself who is wrong, but MS.

          I contacted MS to see if this was in error and was told specifically by Support that I would have to purchase the game in order to redownload it once the 2 week period was passed.

          Trust me I wish it weren’t because I’d like to have my copy of Dead Rising 2 back.

      • baconcheeswhiz89

        you would go to your download history herp derp.

        • Limbonik

          Yes. I did. And when I clicked on it to re-download instead of “Download” I have “Purchase”. I contacted MS about it and their Support team told me that it was for the 2-week window only.

          Trust me I’m not an idiot and I’ve had an Xbox since the beginning. If it were possible I wouldn’t have posted differently.

      • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

        You are wrong.You can delete them at any time and always redownload them later.

        • Limbonik

          I’m not going to repeat myself again. I know what happened to me and I know what Support told me.

      • Nick Peck

        Wow, shows how much you know lol. Go on the website and click purchase history and re download it. Heck, you can even do that from the 360 itself. I can re download games I bought when the 360 came out 8 years ago….

      • E.Nich

        You are wrong. I purchased Crackdown for free when I was overseas through the marketplace, and once I returned home (more than 2 weeks later), I downloaded it without problems. BUT of course, you have to purchase it between the 2 weeks the game is free, you can’t expect to download it for free once that time has expired and there is another free game.

        • Limbonik

          I know all the particulars about the Gold offer. I made the statement based on what has actually happened to me so far and what MS’s Support team response to me was.

          • E.Nich

            Yeah, I know that maybe that’s your case. I’m also writing what it happened to me. For example, I deleted Defence Grid from my hdd because I bought another, two or three months after download it, and had no problems getting it again. In my download history, It shows as re-downloable all the games (though I saw a picture of the download history of a french guy where all the past GwG games showed as non-disposable).

    • Daniel Lorenz

      Thats really not much of a plus point when you dont want to play the games… rather have far cry 3, metal gear rising during my subscription than world of keflings forever…

      • Nick Peck

        Have you played keflings? Or are you assuming it’s a horrible game because it’s an arcade title? Does it really matter? It’s free, try it lol. I never played it and everyone I know loved it, so I’ll give it a shot.

        • martin_m95

          i tried the demo and it was horrible.

    • xbox_gamer

      Yes but once you get plus again you can redownload it or if you kept the games just start replaying again. after psn hack I sold my ps3. Months later when things cooled down bought another used my same game tag and redownloaded my plus stuff. And who cares if you can keep the game , It can’t transfer to xbox1. I have games now I bought on both systems and delete them. I have tons of plus games I don’t keep on my system like split second and shift 2 but can get them again if I want.

  • Krueger

    That’s not joke? apparently it’s time to sell my xbox 360.

  • Lloytron

    You guys don’t get it, this is about VALUE.

    PS+ is worth continuing the subscription as the offering is so fantastic, month on month.

    These free games? Not even going to bother downloading them. Which is the better value?

  • Muhammad Khalid

    Best free game they gave was crackdown 2.

    • slasaru

      It was Crackdown 1, not the second

      • evilfangs .

        Crackdown 1 was the only free game I enjoyed and played all the way till the end.

        • Michael Martin

          you’re all wrong… the best game they gave out was Defense Grid…. and just incase….. this is not sarcasm.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            no its just a lie.

    • E.Nich

      It was Dead Rising 2, by far.

      • Daniel Lorenz

        Agree, sadly I’d already played through it otherwise I would have been very happy!

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      the game was crackdown 1, its very old.
      oops someone beat me to it——-slasaru.

    • Nick Peck

      For me it was Assassins Creed 2, I fell in love with that game. I enjoyed DR2 and Crackdown as well.

    • EldritchWarlord

      I liked Magic 2013 the most.
      Admittedly I haven’t gotten to playing Crackdown or Dead Rising 2 yet.

      • Jessica-Star

        So far Defense Grid was my fav…so addictive and created a need to ace each level. Magic was fun to play a few rounds of though, and I find myself going back to it every once in a while.

  • Limbonik

    Unless you delete them from your HDD at any time once you download them.

    If you do, you will never be able to download them again for free; you’ll have to pay to get them back.

  • Korahn

    I think I got World of Keflings for free a few years ago. If Iron Brigade is the one I’m thinking of, I’ll be avoiding it as well. This’ll be the first month where I don’t grab either title. Even though i’ve deleted or not touched some of the others.

  • hoggys2much

    Are you lot seriously having a laugh? This Games for Gold is just a complete waste of space!

    All we have had so far is total garbage or really old games most people already have. Now we get World Of Keflings and another Arcade title no one has evger heard off.

    Keflings isn’t scraping the bottom of the barrel here. It is below the bottom of the barrel.

    Just what made you choose these wastes of space?

    G4G worst idea ever. It sucks beyond belief.

    MS you need to get a grip.

    • Getsuga_Tensho

      Keflings is a great game. Definitely up there with the most enjoyable XBLA games I’ve played.

      • Nick Peck

        It’s not a AAA game for free, so he’s upset lol. I love all of the games they have had so far since (except for Halo 3 because I already have it) I haven’t played or owned any of them. Works for people like me!

      • hoggys2much

        Thank you very much for the laugh I needed cheering up.

        I take it you are a sad casual gamer right?

        Keflings is beyond a joke. It is a garbage game for people who are garbage at gaming.

        Oh look lets all give everyone a garbage game where you build pathetic houses with pathetic elves for hours on end. Yawnarama city. I would much rather play a game about watching paint dry. I would much rather play Big Rigs Over The Road racing than this garbage.

        This really is scraping the bottom of the barrel time.

      • hoggys2much

        Ooh look lets all give everyone a garbage as heck game that uses these hideous monstrosities that were forced upon us and weren’t asked for and which have no way to turn them off in the disgusting Avatars.

        Avatars invented by MS as a way to cream money of idiots who have more money than braincells.

        I have done nothing with mine and never will. A couple of my games gave me free Avatar stuff and it was all deleted. Oh and I cheered loudly when my Avatar save file went corrupted.

        Keflings is just a complete slap in the face to everyone.

    • Some guy

      Iron Brigade (Trenched before) is a really good tower defense game.
      But yea, it’s not on the same level as Fable, Assassin’s creed and Halo.
      As a mecha game I would have loved an armored core game.
      Well anyway, I own most of the stuff they give as retail so i don’t have to download them.

  • DerpieDutch

    I would hire some gamers MS. It doesnt matter to me cause my Slap-in-the-Face with Gold is expired and my entire country is switching to PS. But still i wish you all the best. Xbox 360 was great.

    • Guest

      Funny seeing that most people upvoting you aren’t Dutch. The Dutch people I know are importing and still skipping PS4.

  • Guest

    778 comments and I just went through them and I do believe no one from MS has responded to all the negativity yet. I know there’s a lot of drama here but come on someone has to give a hoot about the fans. Just let us know why certain decisions are made about the Games with Gold and why. Is it because we’re not worthy of a half decent game? Is it because I didn’t spend enough on digital content last month? Is it because I don’t buy all the new titles when they’re released? There’s an obvious reason why such old and uninteresting games are being given. How about giving us an answer why. Vote this comment up if you’d like an answer and maybe if it gets enough hits someone might actual notice and give us an answer.

    • Daniel Lorenz

      I give it a vote up.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      they read them but they only look at numbers. there is not that many people that post to this blog to matter. that just seems to be the case because we have complained about the deal of the week for a year or 2 and nothing significant has been done about that either.

      • Guest

        Yep, it’s the same whiners over and over again.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          you really need to put some kind of name other than guest. people don’t take you seriously with no name.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    maybe microsoft doesn’t like people who play golf which is why they give them these games. sux to be a golfer.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          no offense. i think you accidentally posted your powerful statement twice. I was just saying that to let you know in case you weren’t aware. i really dug what you were saying and i feel the same way. so yeah, thumbs up from me!!!

    • Tigre Tornade

      They have no guts for this…

      • Nick Peck

        Because it’s a blog site about Xbox, not created by MS (just an employee). If you morons could possibly stop crying and hating about everything for 5 minutes and enjoy what you DO have and what is coming, things would be a lot more fun.

        • WARLORD

          Yeah well sometimes the grass is.. greener on the other side.

          • Tigre Tornade

            Obviously they don’t care about players, but only about the money… Let’s then give right, and spare our money with their games…

        • Death Dealer

          You’re right and I’ve mentioned it tons of times before, yet nobody seems to understand the concept of a personal blog.

          • Some guy

            Every website that reported that news is filled with the same kind of comments. Major being the PR guy of MS just tend to bring a lot of xbox gamers, so it’s to be expected.

          • Goingwithyouguy

            next time

          • Goingwithyouguy

            ok

  • Getsuga_Tensho

    Sadly I already own A World for Keflings and I don’t really have any interestin Iron Brigade. I’ll give the latter a shot at least though.

    As for A World for Keflings, I urge everyone to give this game a go. It’s a really under appreciated gem. I’ve got many single player and co-op hours out of this game. You can’t really fail the game and it’s not challenging but it’s relaxing, very fun and incredibly charming.

    It’s disappointing that there’s not at least one Games on Demand title but Iron Brigade was received well at release and A World of Keflings is a great game. The latter of which allows you to spend time making nice towns. That’s something and most definitely better than nothing.

    I do have to admit I am a little disappointed that there’s only one free game for me for another month though. Most of the time the Games with Gold program seems to be “Catchup with Gold” for newer members.

  • Nick Peck

    What’s wrong with mixing it up? There was never a stipulation of what types of games, just games. I swear, if I was to hand out $100 bills to you people, most of you would complain about it in one way or another….

    • Master Troll

      Your comparing a $100 bill to these two arcade games you must have a really low IQ

      • EldritchWarlord

        Well then imagine he’s handing out $20 bills and $10 bills most months, and there was that one month he handed out twice as many $20s. Now he’s only handing out $10s.
        Would the people complain? Yes they would, some would even say they prefer he handed out no money at all than “insult” them by only handing out $10s.
        How is that not a perfect analogy for these complaints?

        • Some guy

          Money don’t lose value with time, games do.
          You should use gifts.
          They used to give to give a nice watch and some chocolate but now they give plastic kid watch and smarties.
          Sure it’s free but you can’t do much with it.

        • Monstrous Tard

          Because these games aren’t worth the 10 bucks they are trying to get for them. I suppose them giving me Halo 3 would have cost me 15 bucks, hadn’t i got it free? No, you can buy it and the other retail games that were offered for about 3 bucks on Ebay.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      I wouldn’t and I would even ask for seconds.

  • Skrilla

    Drop the Kinect 2.0 and make a Xbox One without it for $300-350

    • Nick Peck

      They aren’t so stop thinking it. Move on already.

      • Some guy

        Lots of people are moving on, but we wish we didn’t have to.

      • Bk

        They ARE but not at luanch. Read a little more

        • EldritchWarlord

          You should substantiate that claim. I have only ever read that MS considers Kinect a vital part of the Xbox One.

  • Nick Peck

    If that means you won’t post here anymore,, see ya!

    • Tigre Tornade

      Don’t take your dreams for reality… As long as we’ll be free to say what’s wrong in this world, we’ll do it!!!
      Even if you don’t like it…

  • trickbfc1988

    I can understand microsoft wanting to give away lots of different variety of games but these two games will never be downloaded on my console its that simple.

  • Frederico Giuseppe

    I thought I read somewhere Alan Wake was on GWG for November?

    • EldritchWarlord

      You very well might have. It was just predictions though, and many people thought spooky games might be in because of Halloween.
      It doesn’t really make much sense, Halloween is in October after all.

  • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

    So, if it’s not new, it’s not good. If it’s not retail, it’s not good. Check.

    Iron Brigade is one of the best XBLA title in forever, and Keflings is great to relax to. And free. Both of them. These are not games you can just walk down to GameStop and buy for $3, and they’re free.

    But it’s clearly worth 800 comments.

    • Some guy

      They both were reduced to 5$ and both have a load of DLC.
      And even if they are good(Iron brigade is great), they aren’t retail game good.

      • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

        So XBLA games can’t be as good as something released to retail? And if you want value, these games don’t stay reduced. They’re $10 again, because digital pricing doesn’t follow usual pricing trends. The retail titles they’ve given us can be had for a few dollars at GameStop or Amazon. Halo 3? $1 at Amazon. Rainbow Six Vegas? A penny at Amazon.

        • Some guy

          XBLA games tend to have lower budget then AAA games, yes.
          As for pricing, XBLA packages that went retail are also really cheap. But since it’s games published by MS, made by MS studios and released on the MS marketplace, i’m pretty sure it doesn’t cost a thing to them outside bandwith.

          • EldritchWarlord

            Just consider this as them making up for offering two AAA games (along with the standalone expansion to one of them) in one month then.

          • Some guy

            I own Iron Brigade, I own 90% of the stuff they give because it’s almost only MS published games and I bought almost all of them.
            So it’s making up for offering nothing.

          • EldritchWarlord

            That’s not really Microsoft’s fault. Unless you’re proposing that they only offer the most obscure and low-selling titles.
            MS does actually own Defense Grid, Magic 2013, Dead Rising 2, Assassin’s Creed II, A World of Keflings, or Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes. So unless “almost all” now means “just over half” you’re wrong about that.

          • Some guy

            Well, you precisly named the games I didn’t have have outside DR 2 that i got as the first was exclusive.
            I don’t really care about not having games because I own too many, but I don’t really like getting games that have little value.

          • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

            So, we only quantify quality by how much it cost to make something? So Lone Ranger is the best movie ever?

            There are retail XBLA packages. I own them. Neither Iron Brigade nor World of Keflings are in any of them.

          • Some guy

            If I had to choose between Dead Rising and How To Survive, i’ll take Dead Rising. If I had to shoose between Blacksite and Perfect Dark Arcade, i’d take Perfect dark. If I had to choose between how to survive and blacksite, i’d take blacksite.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      your opinion counts as well just as everyone who is complaining. just remember that.

  • roozbeh, again

    First tiger woods stops making games, now these bad games.
    Sucks to be a golfer these days, ah well…
    FORE!

        You would think he wouldn’t have time to make a game with all them women and his golfing.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      LOL

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      • roozbeh, again

        I think I got it the first time.

  • EldritchWarlord

    Imagine what you’d be thinking if Microsoft never started Games with Gold at all.

    • Tigre Tornade

      We’ll be playing on PC… So what?
      I am very disapointed by the M$ policy which isn’t fair nor respectfull for the players…I mean: if you go for 10 years to the same garage, wouldn’t you quite angry if they give you a lame skateboard, as on the same time, another garage would give you a luxury car?
      Anwser me frankly, please…

      • EldritchWarlord

        What garage is giving away luxury cars? PS+?
        In November PS+ is adding the following games to Instant Game Collection: Binary Domain, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, Ibb and Obb.
        Decent games I’m sure, but nothing of such spectacularly higher quality than A World of Keflings and Iron Brigade as you seem to think. In fact going by Metacritic Binary Domain is the worst of the bunch and Iron Brigade is the best.
        Anyway, for your anger to be justified then your current anger at Microsoft must be at least a little lesser than the anger you had for them between June 2010 and June 2013. After all during that period the garage you were a long time customer of offered no skateboards or cars yet another one offered some. That seems like a far worse situation than one simply offering more cars and skateboards (a more realistic analogy for the comparison).
        Somehow I doubt you held such rage against Microsoft for three years while continuing to be a Gold subscriber. You must have realized that there is more to Xbox Live Gold than free stuff they didn’t give you. There in fact is still more to Xbox Live Gold than the free stuff they are giving you. How do you think Microsoft is paying for their huge server infrastructure that they’re freely providing to Xbox One developers? Does PS+ boast anything similar?

          Obviously, you’re not klever enought to understand an illustration with examples…

          • EldritchWarlord

            I think I’m more than clever enough to understand your vacuous analogy.
            Do you have any rational arguments to offer?

          • Tigre Tornade

            M$ is only interesseted in making money, and they give quite nothing to the gamer community, that ‘s the point where they are doing it wrong.
            And it’s a shame because they were, and maybe still are leaders in online gaming console, and in spite of the advises and the hopes of the gamers, they ‘re losing the original spirit of entertainement…

          • Tigre Tornade

            I think it’s one of the reason of these violent reactions from gamers… We had so high hopes in M$ and in the Xbox Live!, tha we are far much disapointed and our wrath explodes here by the way…

        • Monstrous Tard

          You lost me when you claimed A World of Keflings is better than Binary Domain and Dragons Dogma. You have to remember that these are Arcade titles and subject to a higher score due to them not costing as much as retail games. I pretty sure if they charged 60 bucks for The Maw, It would have a much lower score than a 7.5.

          • EldritchWarlord

            I did not claim A World of Keflings is better than Dragon’s Dogma.
            Furthermore if one simply looks at a more complete list of which games both services offer you would see that retail games account for about half the games on both IGC and GwG. It’s something most people in this thread are not seeing.

          • Xavier Lassiter

            “Decent games I’m sure, but nothing of such spectacularly higher quality than A World of Keflings and Iron Brigade”

            Yes you did claim it was better or was i reading that wrong?

          • Jessica-Star

            You were reading that incorrectly…the statement you just quoted says that the PS+ games listed are not that much better than the two being given to XBox live Gold members. He is admitting they may be better by some standards, but not much. He then mentions that Iron Brigade was reviewed higher overall, but that’s just one standard of comparison.

            In other words, he’s being very reasonable and fair and admitting your PS+ games may be better. He’s also saying that doesn’t seem to justify the outcry about free things.

          • Xavier Lassiter

            Ok just making sure but the reasons some people are getting mad about the free games is the select titles they pick and I’m going to come out and be honest some of them were horrible besides Dead Rising 2 which was great but there giving out games that some people really don’t care I really want to know why how they got to these two choice of game.

          • Lloytron

            Sure, IGC has had plenty of non retail titles. But in EU we have what, 2 or 3 retail PS3 titles every month which are usually recent. I gather its not quite as strong in the US.

            This month I got Metal Gear Rising, Remember Me and Strangers Wrath on Vita alongside other stuff. Last month, Far Cry 3, Dragons Dogma and so much more.

            How is kelflings and Iron Brigade in any way near the same league?

            I guess some folks are just happy with the crumbs from Microsofts table, no matter how stale.

  • Guest

    Keep at it whiners. You’re the 3% MS doesn’t give a rat’s *ss about.
    Iron Brigade is a good game and Keflings isn’t my type of game either, but still fun.
    If you’ve got the games already then you’re just SOL. But c’mon guys, let’s get it up to a 1000 posts, you’ll still be the insignificant and irrelevant minority yapping at MN who isn’t the right person to be nagging to about this. Byyyeee!

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    i know this might of been a suggestion from the past but microsoft should put up a poll with games each month(retail and arcade) and let the customers vote on which retail and arcade game the fans should get.

    • Tigre Tornade

      It should be a good idea, so M$ won’t do this…

    • Some guy

      Call Of Duty every months every years.
      No they should give a list from which we can pick the game we want.

  • Matrix_omega

    Iron Brigade/Trenched is a good game. Looking forward to this one.

    But M$ does deserve to get the feedback they are getting. It might sound like we are a bunch of greedy twats. But the fact of the matter is .. The competition is offering way better for the same price.

    Ive been saying for years M$ has to do better. Steam has taken way more my money then M$ has. There’s a reason for this. And I play just as many games on both systems.

  • Leonardo

    Its a Joke?

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      No its just for golfers. M$ doesn’t like golfers apparently.

  • BurntDave

    not to bash (there’s more than enough already) ..but i honestly don’t get it;
    are you guys that out-of-touch with the community or what?
    every month it’s way more negative comments than thank-you’s..for something free.
    which i’ll admit i almost feel bad for you guys for.. but at the same time; surely you know it’s coming with the choices you make (or don’t you?)

    actually quite fine with 2 arcade games, but there’s many others that would be much better appreciated..
    love to know why they make the choices they do.

  • Gunther Unbekannt

    There better be Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts down the line!

    • Disturbed_Court_Jester

      Some of the other regions were given that game a few months back.

    • MaximMillion

      Or Banjoo Kazooie 1 & 2

      • Gunther Unbekannt

        Great platformers without a doubt but I’ve already played those. Plus, I like building things therefore Nuts & Bolts seems right up my alley despite not really being a Banjo game.

  • ZAC

    I always like to check here to see if I’m missing out on something. Thanks for driving home the reason i canceled my xbox live. Sold my Wii U for a Vita. PS PLUS FOR THE WIN!

  • hoggys2much

    Am I alone in thinking that Nelson really is a complete waste of space and has been a total joke for 360.

    He needs to go now as he is so far out of touch with gamers it is laughable.

    We have already got rid of Mattrick now it is time him to go.

    Oh and I bet Larry The Lamb doesn’t read these comments either.

    • roozbeh, again

      You don’t visit this blog too often, do you?
      Making dumb comments about some guy you don’t know isn’t really smart.

      The tolerance that Larry Hyrb has towards you people is beyond me.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        I agree with you and at the same time understand what she is saying. Major IS the face of xbox for most gamers so when something is not right he gets the blame. it just comes with the territory unfortunately.

        • roozbeh, again

          I agree with that, but to say you want him fired is kinda crossing the line

          • hoggys2much

            Let me ask you, Did you want Mattrick fired after the disastrous Xbox One launch and all the garbage he wanted to do with it? I bet you did and if you did what difference is there between people wanting Mattrick fired and me wanting Hryb fired.

            Who the heck appointed this out of touch with reality to be the spokesperson for 360?

          • roozbeh, again

            Don Mattrick was an exec who destroyed the brand name. He was a greedy and dumb douche. He also destroyed MS’s image in the public eye for some time.

            Major Nelson (AKA Larry Hyrb) has been with xbox since 2003 so he has been here for a longer period than most think. He is much more in touch with gamers than you think. Just check the archives on the site, then tell me this man is equal to Don Mattrick. You probably couldn’t.

            Do some research before you mock the man on his own blog.

          • hoggys2much

            I see you are just a complete toady aren’t you. You think the sunshine’s out of Hyrb’s backside and that he can’t do anything wrong.

            WHAT!!!!

            Look around you man this blog is full of complaints about this months free games and where the heck is Larry The Lamb to answer them all? NOWHERE! Because like all employees of MS he doesn’t give a flying fig about us.

            Why the heck do you like this guy so much? The guy is like all MS employees a waste of space.

          • roozbeh, again

            The problem ain’t with him, it is with the guys that make the actual choices. He is just a messenger

            How can he answer? It isn’t like he makes these decisions. So he is kinda powerless in this entire regard. The most he can do is just pass this as feedback.

            I like the guy, I admit that. Why you ask?
            Because he seems to be Xbox’s last human personality. Beyond all the suits and shills. He also is much more in touch with the Xbox community than the other guys in the team.

          • hoggys2much

            Thank you for the laugh I needed it.

            You what? What kind of cloud cuckoo land are you living in? Larry The Lamb is so far out of touch with gamers and reality it is beyond laughable.

            Like I said he is just a clueless wonder and like all MS employees he doesn’t give a flying fig about the customers who pays his wages.

            Oh and he can so easily explain why this months games are total garbage. He is an MS employee and being as such should have all the insider knowledge and should know why this garbage was chosen. But is he here to explain that? No he isn’t because like I said he doesn’t give a fig about us and is totally clueless.

          • MaximMillion

            Try to be constructive with your criticism. Constructive criticism helps us learn. You’re coming off as a really nasty person right now, which actually helps nobody.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            oh yeah. i really like major nelson so no i don’t agree with firing him. i really think he is the only person to bring back the faith in xbox.

        • hoggys2much

          I would just like to point out that I am a man.

          I use Bayonetta as my Icon as that is my all time favourite game.

    • Monstrous Tard

      Whats wrong with Larry? I don’t believe he has a Say in this.

    • Lloytron

      Talk about shooting the messenger

    • evilfangs .

      Larry has nothing to do with the games we are given. He is just the messenger. So no need to be rude towards him. Larry to me seems like a decent guy.

  • CoMaestro

    I don’t really get your point here.. I said that PS+ people get free games because the instant games collection and discounts are basically the only thing they pay for (that and demo priority’s and automatic updates, but many wont buy it just because of those things), and with Gold you get online play, party chat, and of course a lot of other things but those two have got to be the main perks of gold.

    • Monstrous Tard

      Your the only fanboy i see for believing that conspiracy, I’ve never owned a PlayStation(yet) and have recently canceled my gold membership, after being a Gold member for 6 years and before you start claiming I’m a Sony fanboy trying to convert people to the other side, here is a link to my 80k gamer score account https://live xbox com/en-US/Profile?gamertag=BloodDripsDown I can even message you if you don’t believe it. I didn’t cancel it because of these games, but because I will get way more for my money going with the PS4, which is what a lot of people here are doing.

      • Dylan

        Yeah I’ve got 96K gamerscore and an original Xbox and I’m making the switch for next gen.
        I feel ya.

      • WARLORD

        Yeah, me too I have been with xbox from the beginning 36k gamer score. Would be a higher score but I had one account stolen… well two but back in the day all thy would do is lock the account for good.

      • Axl Jay

        45k+…

      • hoggys2much

        I have been gaming on 360 for over 5 years and have a GS of 42454.

        I seriously can’t believe you have never owned a PlayStation.

      • MelanysMusicBox

        4 months – 25k :) (I just own A LOT OF games… I kinda collect them)

      • Ivanx360xpira

        I was referring to that morons spamming and trolling DD…that WAS pathetic!
        Everybody has the right to speak or choose, but I think a little respect is good for everyone…

        • Monstrous Tard

          Ah, I took it you were referring to everyone making negative comments, my bad.

  • Ivanx360xpira

    fortunately those morons were moderated…

  • roozbeh, again

    Well that escalated quickly…

  • MelanysMusicBox

    You know what’d be fair? When Microsoft would let US to choose the games!

    Microsoft should give the gamers a choice between 10 games that fit their budget* and then we all vote which game we’d like to get for “Games With Gold”. I think this way everyone would be happy!

    * According to an earlier post the monthly budget for “Games With Gold” is $30 – $35, therefore they should offer a fair choice (between XBLA titles and GoD titles containing titles like “the Halo franchise”, “the Forza Motorsport franchise”", Gears Of War, Need For Speed, Crysis, Dead Space, Silent Hill, Devil May Cry, Street Fighter, Fallout, Oblivion, Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire… all these titles are great and cost between $15 and $20 which makes them match the “Games With Gold” requirements!

    • evilfangs .

      Sounds like a good idea, but Microsoft would never do this, it would cost them too much.

      • MelanysMusicBox

        Yes, I know they’d (probably) never to this, however, I don’t get why this would cost them (more).

        • evilfangs .

          I’m not exactly sure how Microsoft deals with the developers and publishers but if it’s they give money to them each time someone downloads one of these games then if we got to pick our games it would be more of us downloading that game and that would make Microsoft pay more to the publishers / developer.

          • Some guy

            Publisher for both of those games: Microsoft Studios
            Is that some cheap way for the CEO to give himself a truck load of money with the name of MS on it? Would explain a lot.

  • roozbeh, again

    Please for the love of Nintendo stop this.

  • evilfangs .

    Anyone else getting “Error establishing a database connection” on that link Larry just retweeted? I’d like to see the difference between digital and physical Ghosts.

          • slasaru

            Does not matter how many members in steam – most having an outdated pc weaker than xbox 360 and income not as big

        • paul rolland

          Might as well, Microsoft have spent the last 3 year trying to turn Live into Steam
