via Major Nelson- Undertow is now available, free of charge, until Sunday January 27th at 11:59 PST.
I could download it now...but its 5h30 in the morning ...sadly Undertow will have to wait till tomorrow :)
They picked the WORSE game possible at the freeby?!
Jason actually m8 I think undertow is new and I heard pretty good.
ive been playing round with it, its pretty for an arcade game, but kinda boreing, oh well something for nothing i guess
This is good move fro MS to ads XBLA
shall get when i finnish work.
I am not impressed with it at all.. i think it would of been better if MS gave everyone 800 points so we could choose which game we actually wanted.. oh well, cant have everything!
Bah. I dont like this game. I was hoping they gave pac man CE. Always want the game but im a cheapass mf.
I might have got a game picture icon and some themes, but I guess you can't complain about getting a game for free. I just don't see me really playing that game.
-so for me it will be as if they did nothing. oh well, you win some you lose some.
Never had any of the other alleged issues, but live kept on crapping out while I was trying to download this game. Worked eventually; likely the download servers are slammed (or my crappy Irish ISP)...
Free stuff = good!
picked just one and the same game. Many people have 3 or more accounts and would be downloading 3 different games if they had give away 800 points.
I think that would be part of the problem of giving away points.
I guess they had to negotiate a sum to pay the devs of this game in order to make it free for a while - they will be losing money by giving it away so will need to be re-embersed. If you could use points for any game then that would make it much more complicated by having to deal with all the companies that develop for XBLA.
I was actually surprised by how much I liked the single player so I was looking forward to playing it on Live. but my brain simply can't process everything that going on screen in large matches. Does anyone else get this?
so how about those whose XBOXs are in texas right now getting serviced? i guess we won't get jack $hit.
Just played undertow for an hour, conclusion is - boring, repetitive but pretty game. Not satisfied.
I'll download this as soon as I get home from school.
I'm actually kinda pissed right now. This game is the worse game i've ever played. Wow i cant believe i wasted time on this game. Do yourself a favor and dont download it. I'm about to write to microsoft and give them an earful about this crappy game. Just freaking wow, are they serious with this crap of a game. I played it for 20 minutes and i was so upset with it that i deleted that crap. Honestly, i dont think anyone is gonna enjoy that crap of a game.
