1 Free Live Game Per Account... - Nov 14, 2007 10:09
To celebrate Xbox Live' s 5th Birthday

Oh, and if you' re one of the nutters who signed up way back in 2002, you get 1000 Live points hand-delivered on a silicon turkey-tray by a Microsoft employee in assless chaps.


...



Okay, I was just kidding.

It' s only 500 points.

Edit: The free game is Carcassone.

I guess I will finally get Geometry Wars. I bought Bomberman Live and have barely played it, making me wish I chose Geometry Wars over it.

Sadly you dont get to choose, its Carcasonne or however you spell it.
I dont want to celebrate, I want to sell you hate.

If you don' t get a choice why not just send codes to the people instead of saying 500 points as if you can choose what you want, And btw is the game any good?

Everyone gets the game, only 2002 members get the 500 points. And to clarify again, everyone gets Carcasonne(Korea gets Geometry Wars 2 instead), only members since 2002 get the 500 points.

I downloaded the demo of Carcassonne, it was ok, no great technological breakthrough but an interesting diversion. I' m happy to get it free, it would have been nice to have a bit of a choice, but hey MS are giving away free stuff, I' m not going to complain.

Whcih game will ytou guys choose?

I think I will take like Doom (can be played co-op) or perhaps...Marathon?
Even if you break 2 legs from a crab it still runs!
What you gotta do is find its weak spot and do massive damage at it.

Carcassonne won game of the year for board games a few years back... it' s a great game but not one that I would have chosen for myself for XBLA.

The way I read it, was that it is a free XBL game from the current catalogue, as Sonic was mentioned if I can find the article I will update this post.

Ah here it is

http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2007/11/14/microsoft_xbox_live_fifth_anniversary/

As you see it mentions a few names, so maybe it is not restricted to just the one title

Well too bad that site fails and so do you. ITS ***ING CARCASSONNE, the official release says Carcassonne, I dont care what some no name garbage British site says that cant even quote the press release.

Hey it' s not fault they employee ass clowns for writers, they are normally spot on with their reporting. I have flayed my skin, by ways of an apology

Actually, Ive never heard of it. I didnt pay much attention to who posted it, had I realised it were you and not one of our ahem" new" members, I wouldnt have been such an ass about it. Hell, even Quez thought you got to choose, and he has inside connections, being Bill Gates' nephew and all

To get your 500points you have to register on a site and they email you a code. Link on www.xbox-scene.com in the article.
