    There is a Free Game when you follow the links for the promotion on their website. It just isn't as advertised.

    I guess we will just have to wait and see what games we are offered as alternatives when the actual games aren't available here. I actually prefer Joy Ride Turbo to Defense Grid: The Awakening so that's alright but I'm sure most people will disagree. Eh, I take it you would prefer Defense Grid: The Awakening, steaksauce?

    I can understand why Defense Grid disappointed people - they were expecting some AAA titles. But let's not allow this to undermine what a great game Defense Grid is! It's one of my favourite tower defense games

    Pfftt, don't say that! We can't even play it!

    Thanks for finding out about the SA XBox Live situation though.

    Actually I would prefer neither of these. From what I understood the games on offer were going to be full retail titles. They've gone and watered this down to arcade titles and that's what really get's to me.

    Fair enough. I also thought it was going to be big titles. In fact, I renewed my Live Gold just because of the free games.

    It kinda feels like we've been hustled by Microsoft. You have my condolances, if I upgraded to gold especially to get free games I wuld be very disappointed.
    Luckily I've had gold for the past few years for the multiplayer aspects. I simply wont entertain them by downloading anything sub-what-I-expected.
    MajorNelson took quite a beating on his page over this as well so people all over are not very impressed at the moment.
