Forums - Gaming Discussion - Xbox360 - Games with gold. Dead Island!!!!!

Tagged games:

You heard it right here ladies and gents, Games with gold has a game up now which isn't over 5 years old :D I was blown away when I seen it offered, I know it's not really the highest scoring game ever but it's almost definately the newest game given away with this program so far.

So log onto your xbox's sometime between now and the 16th and get the license for this game on your profile, the download is only 3.5gb but like always as long as you at least activate the license on your system you don't need to download the game right now if you have bandwidth/storage issues you can happily download this game whenever you want to play it.

European link but yeah if you go to your local Xbox site you can get it there (but have to add your CC details even tho it's free) but yeah the console is easier to get it directly added to your account as always.

is the game any good? is it a zombie game or more like a shooter?

The only game I was excited for that was free was Sleeping Dogs and I couldn't even download it!!

your sig suggests silver member? That would definately stop you getting games with gold stuff. My own gold sub runs out actually at the start of March... doubt I will be resubbing to it again until Ultra Street fighter 4 comes out since the only things I use live for is the free games each month (most of which I have already) and for Youtube/Netflix on the big screen (also have a ps3 which don't put these 2 behind a paywall)

No I'm a gold member. I've been one for 2 years now. I had a 14 day Gold trial code that I used, so my sig shows me as a Silver member right now.

Why couldn't you dl sleeping dogs?

What I do is, I start the DL, then stop it. This way I can grab them for free whenever I want but don't have to use the space.

It's not great but it's pretty fun if you play with friends. The game can get pretty difficult at times which is nice. It doesn't hold your hand.  The escort missions are terrible because the AI is so awful, and the game has you running through the same sewers many times which gets very reptitive. The story is completely forgettable. 



Had a bet with eFKac on whether or not Valve will be at Sony's E3: I lost.
