The topic is my problem. I have both Games and can't get the DLC over the marketplace, I think it's because they are banned in Germany. Does anybody know how to "fix this problem"? Search function didn't help.
Thanks in advance!

If (didn't test it) MS points can be used in all of europe (meaning German ones can be used on, say, UK accounts) you could just create an account that has an address somewhere in France, the Netherlands, or anywhere else in europe, load some points to that account and download the DLC from there.
I'd prefer a Dutch account since games there are usually in English while France sometimes gets proper translations (thus the games may be in French).

You need to have an E-Mail that is registered to the US or some country with DLC. I recommend USA because not only do they have GoW and Ao2 but they have a bunch of free stuff and free XBLA titles.

I don't know if this will work. I have an US-Account and I tried to download some free stuff and then a message appeared, saying something like: "you are not able to download this from your region".

Are you sure? I had no problem getting all the content I tried to get via my US account. Although, to be fair, my internet provider makes me look Swedish to the internet, despite being in Germany (long story).

Yes, a costume from Dead Rising for example.

Creating an account in another region is not enough. You need to use a vpn-connection to be able to download from other marketplaces. I don't know how to do it exactly but you should be able find a tutorial in no time

Because here in Germany you will be treated like a child even if your an adult when it comes to games or movies

Actually, it is being rated slightly above what would be AO in the states. However, publishers do not publish titles rated as such.

The rating means that you cannot advertise the game (or movie, or comic book) and cannot put it up for sale anywhere were minors could see it. These are effectively the same restrictions that apply to porn. Publishers won't publish a game under these circumstances, just as is the case in the US with AO rated games (remember Manhunt 2?).
