2400 MS points came through courtesy of Now TV. Shame that sale had finished.

Hey guys, not sure if this is exactly the right place but I need a little help / advice. I was round my girlfriends for Easter holidays and she had downloaded The Walking Dead Episode 1 for free in the Easter sale. I played it. Loved it. Decided to get the other four episodes which were all on sale. Knowing though, that since I would be using her console for the next week or so, if I bought them now they would download to her machine, I went on my laptop and bought them through xbox.com. I also made sure that I got Episode 1 as I had read that Episode 2-5 were just DLC and needed the first episode to play. I removed them from my download queue, where it confirmed I could still download them at any time and enjoyed the Easter Holidays. yesterday, I came back, added the 5 episodes to my download queue on my laptop and switched my own 360 on. What set alarm bells going straight away was when Episode 1 had finished it said "The Walking Dead - Trial Game Downloaded". This threw me, as I had bought (albeit for free) the full game and then the rest of the episodes. I couldn't check it until this morning when the rest had finished and guess what? It don't work. I go to the title screen and it says "Play" - which then shows me all the episodes but I can only select Episode 1. That then jumps to a point further in the game than the start which I assume is just a trial taster. And underneath Play it says "Unlock Episode 1" - I click on that and it takes me to the screen to buy Episode 1 for 400msp. Now some friends have said that it's because I haven't played episode 1 yet on this console. This doesn't seem to ring true though as I have my game save on my pen drive with my account and I've even copied it to the HDD to see if that makes a difference. Plus, why would it ask me to Unlock Episode 1, or jump to a random point in that game rather than the start of the episode? I know it's only 400msp, but it's a piss take that I got this whilst it was free but because I coudn't download it til after the sale had finished I now have to pay if I want to play the episodes I've already bought? Any advice or tips on how to fix this or where to complain to?

Yeah, like you say it's probably because it's switched back from free to 400msp in the meantime.

Obviously if you purchased it free at one time or another you should still be able to download it (for free) at a later date. Probably some loophole in the code with free content not activating on the account properly until downloaded, could be anything, but it sounds bugged.

Try going here: http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/contact-us

Select the type of problem and then choose to chat with Microsoft support, you might have to wait a bit but they've managed to help me once or twice in the past, worth a shot.

Thanks mate. Yeah, I'm in the support chat with them now. They were trying to say that only the trail was free but I've just proven them wrong with a screenshot from the website sale and now they're ignoring me and just repeatedly saying : "Jan: I have not heard from you for a while. Do you still need assistance? " Fuckers.

"Since I haven't heard from you in a while, I'm going to close this chat session. If you still need help, please contact Xbox Support again. Thank you for contacting Xbox Customer Support and have a wonderful day!"

Bastards!

Yeah they're not exactly great, I had a password reset problem once upon a time and I must have had to explain it 23 times before they finally caught on to what I was saying.

I'm also not convinced English isn't their first language in most cases, making it doubly frustrating.

Yeah, its little telltale signs like using the wrong tense or the exact same phrasing. The second agent seemed a lot nicer but was still bloody useless. They're insisiting I only have the trial game on my account and need to pay for episode 1 to play the others. Even though I proved that it was the full game that was free at the time. This guy said that he also got them all in the sale and enjoys them "very muchly". Good to know. First of all, after I proved to him it was the full game he wanted to run troubleshooting on my console to see if the download had been corrupted. I pointed out that since it says on their system that I only have the trial game on my account, then the problem can't be local. I asked if it could be amended on my account remotely now I've proven that I should have the full game and then I could try re-downloading it. He said it was a possibility then asked me to wait. came back and said the problem is more "severe than we expected" (what the fluke does that mean???) and that he needed to pass it onto Tier 3 who would contact me within 72 hours...

Depends what you're after with a bundle to be honest, most of them seem to come with Kinect these days, which is a little frustrating, not to mention expensive.

Also depends how much storage you're after, the 4GB model is only £129.99 at Amazon, but that's no good if you want to start downloading DLC or XBLA games.

I had a hunt around and these were the best deals for the money I saw.

Pre-owned 360 S 250GB from GAME at £110: Clicky!
New 360 S 250GB from SimplyGames for £179.99: Clicky!
New 360 S 250GB with Forza 4 & Skyrim from GAME at £189.99: Clicky!

I'd go pre-owned at this stage personally, just over £100 for a 250GB slim model is none too shabby really.

So one of this months 'Free for Gold' games has been announced. Arcade title Defence Grid Awakening.

I'm pretty appalled to be honest, at E3 they name checked Fable, Halo and Assassins Creed. The first offering is this?!

Not really a PS Plus rival is it?

I thought it was H3 and AC2 this month?

Edit: Just checked, they're due "in the coming months".

Woo. Hoo.

Yeah, they put up AC2 and H3 when it was announced and it seems a lot of people assumed they would be first, even though that was never stated. I think MS should have stated that the promo included Arcade as well as GoD, but handling public expectation certainly hasn't been their strong point lately! Personally, I'll take whatever's offered rather than complain about what's not.

However, if you read some of the comments on various blogs you'd get the impression that Sony give away every game for free, at launch, and MS are evil for not doing the same...

What's more worrying is that if they were name checking Halo and Assassins Creed is it likely that they'll be the best of the bunch?

But, just to be fair, we've never really had anything free for being gold members before so something is better than nothing right?

It's free, they didn't have to do it, so I'll be downloading whatever comes up.

It doesnt rival PS Plus by any stretch but I will say this that Defence Grid is one of the best XBLA titles Ive played. I really enjoyed it but I think its just going to get a beating and not be given a fair chance because people wanted to be playing retail release games.

To be fair Fable 3 was their first offering not this, but Defense Grid is meant to be awesome.

They definitely oversold it by name dropping three retail titles.

My concern, is as Chief says they've name dropped those two as highlights so I presume they are going to be the best on offer?

The last paragraph of this article suggests Defense Grid may have been a change of plan...
