    Thanks for the update Major.

    Everyone should check out the free copy of Tinker that is available now for download as Major suggested. If you experience any issues downloading it though, please ensure you are on the use Microsoft Points tab instead of credit card before purchasing.

    Enjoy!

    Nice! However, Games for Windows – LIVE for DiRT 2 I keep having problems earning achievements in it. I earn an achievement but it does not show up in my list? I can keep earning it but still not showing for days.😦

    Back on topic…it’s good to have a free game and with achievements.😀

    Do these games suffer from the dreaded limited number of installations that plagues all Games for Windows games?

    Make sure you are connected to Live. I had that problem with Batman: Arkham Asylum and just now with Tinker. Xbox.com wasn’t showing I got any Tinker achievements. I went back into Tinker, hit the “home” button and there was a button to connect to Live. So, I wasn’t logged in for the achievements to register with Xbox Live. I connected and now my achievements show up on Xbox.com.

    why do I get logged out of my xbox live when trying to use the pc ver at the same time? That is a joke… they are 2 different mediums why are you only able to use one at a time? Steam FTW…

    rogXue: Microsoft probably don’t want multiple people using the same account to get achievements.

    Hey Major, you linked to a press release about this GFWL on Demand thing. In there it said World of Goo would be available at launch. I’m assuming it launched today, but I don’t see World of Goo.

    Also wondering what happened to the GFWL versions of World of Goo and OSMOS that the press release last week said would be available today. http://www.microsoft.com/games/en-US/community/newsarticles/pages/gamesondemandcomingsoon.aspx

    This game is awesome. Um… how do I do S1L7 without getting trapped by the ice blocks? I use the magnet and laser them but can’t see how to clear a path to the exit.

    I can’t seem to download Tinker. I get the following message on confirming the download on the screen that shows how many MS Points are left. This is the message.

    “Sorry
    An error has occurred during the transaction. Please try again later.”

    Any ideas?
