    Finished downloading it the other day, a quick half hour "kick the tires" session escalated pretty quickly, 4 hours later I put the controller down.

    A wonderful sense of progression in it.

    I loved Crackdown, then a certain 7yr old somehow delted/overwrote my saved progress :(

    Got stuck in to Crackdown over the long weekend, was playing for about 4 hours before I thought to myself... "How come I haven't got any achievements yet?"

    Completed it 5 years ago and forgot about it :o

    Been co-opping with a friend on psychotic. Hilarious. Had a moment after killing the Volk boss to pick up his body, shout in triumph and hurl the corpse into the ocean. Was very 90's action movie :D

    They're up now. I've added them to my ever growing queue of games.

    6 Agility Orbs left to find in Crackdown and it's driving me mental. Especially as now in real life I keep looking at buildings and trying to plan the easiest way to the top.

    Enjoyed playing through this again though I must say, is crackdown 2 worth a go?

    It's not as good but still a lot of fun

    If I add these to my download queue will I be able to play them in a month or 2? Hard drive is full and I don't have much time at the moment, so I won't be able to properly download these for a few weeks.

    Once you "purchase" them, you own them forever, meaning that you can download them at any time in the future.

    I've been adding them to my console on Xbox.com, and only downloading what I want to download.

    Hadn't realised that, thought I could only download them in the two week window.

    When I first played Dead Rising many years ago, it was fun - tried DR2 you can get since last weekend, it was just... I dunno, boring? :|


  • Registered Users Posts: 884 ✭✭✭ Doodlebug


    Definitely more arcade-y than I'm used to for this type of game (having played Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare recently), but still fun!

    Mind you, I hadn't played DR2 when first released.

    Does anyone know what the next games will be? I just bought Skyrim there yesterday and absolutely love it so it's going to take something special to get my attention away from that.

    Ya I think Skyrim IS the next free game! :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 412 ✭✭ Iano_128


    I'm reading Halo 3 will probably be one of them, another game I'd have no interest in but will probably download anyway :)

    Yeah, Halo 3 released September 2007 - so I'd say they might do it next month to mark the anniversary.

    I'm finding Dead Rising to be incredibly boring.

    Go find this guy
    Come back to safe house
    go find this guy
    Come back to safe house
    go get zombrex
    come back to safe house

    The "cases" give a little variation but still a bit tedious.

    It's marmite. Really don't know why they never allowed an open world option from the start

    No confirmation or announcement on sundays free game yet. Most places speculating its L4D and Borderlands 1 others saying it's gears of war.

    I hope not on all 3!!!! I have them already :(

    The format it's followed so far seems to be a old lesser/obsurce game (Defense Grid, Crackdown) on the 1st and then a bigger title on the 16th (Fable III, AC, Dead Rising 2). The three you've named would (to me at least) be 'big' games. I'd happily take any of those you mention but I'm preparing myself for some XBLA I've never heard of, just in case.

    Well, at least it'll be free. It certainly ties in with the whole "first game in a month being obscure" theory.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,233 ✭✭✭ Meesared


    Dont know if I would call Crackdown obscure in any sense. 1.5 Million copies sold apparantly.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,640 ✭✭✭ Pushtrak


    So, that magic game, and Rainbow Six Vegas.

    Godammit, was really hoping for halo 3 this month.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 9,113 Mod ✭✭✭✭ CatInABox


    Magic: the gathering and Rainbow 6: Vegas

    Don't have either! Excellent.

    EDIT: I'm getting slow in my old age, didn't see the above posts :(

    Zero interest in Magic the Gathering, but very happy with Rainbow 6.
