    Re: Happy birthday Xbox live -Bag yourself a free game

    Hello there again, first post on here for a long time.

    Anyone else been having REALLY bad issues with Live over the last 72 hours?
    I can't get to my friends list most of the time without it hanging, COD4 online doesn't work, Halo 3 online only works about 1 in 5 times.
    All my friends are also experiencing the same thing so tis not hardware realted, I'm finding it hard to find much info about it all though, or when its going to be sorted out.

    Just looked and the full version of Carcassone is indeed listed as free while the other arcade games (the ones I checked) are not . Upon initial reading of the story I tried to download Worms but it was requesting payment. I then saw your post, checked it out and the outcome is as per the info in my first sentence. Disappointing to say the least.

    Sorry Dorza, I hate being the bearer of bad news. Various sites were reporting differently on this one, some were saying any free arcade game, others were saying Carcassonne for free.

    I've just had a look myself and Carcassonne is indeed free, no other arcade games are. Oh well, at least it makes the choice easier eh? I'll go for....Carcassonne I think.

    Oh well looks like I shall be downloading Carcassonne tonight then - would have been better if you could choose from any game however I can understand why they have restricted it to one specific game.
