Hey guys Morty here,

When i go on xbox live i sometimes go onto the marketplace and look for free stuff mostly themes and gamer pics. But there has been some really awsome ones iv seen like game add ons which usually cost you.

The best one iv had is the dope bag add on for Kane&Lynch. Which gave you an extra 250 i think which i got all of them hours after downloading so it was a great package and i had great fun playing them! Unfortunately i lost my copy of kane & lynch :( sad times... But if you have the game and havnt got this download i would defenetely recommend!

But whats your best FREE download youve had? Awsome gamer pics? Cool add ons? or maybe a trialer for your fav game?! Respond with your best free download youve ever had from the marketplace! :)

Hands down, I have to say Still Alive for Rock Band.

Dog Of Thunder
08-07-2008, 02:25 AM
The Halo Heroic Map Pack. If I knew Rat's Nest was so much fun, I'd have bought the map pack!

I also love the movie themes they have and I tend to update my dashboard every two weeks or so. :-)

Rainbow Six Vegas Red and Black Map Packs,

Those were so fun and boy did i love them. Had some great times with my clan SWT even though the loading screens were long enough to make a sandwich and take a shower.

Other greats were the Nike picture pack, COD4 prestige picture pack, and Gears of war 2 theme.

08-07-2008, 05:41 AM
I've paid for most of my stuff from the Marketplace, and I'm definitely not a fan of dumb promotional crap like Doritos avatars or upcoming movie themes. All in all I'd have to go with Aegis Wing for XBLA.

Crackdown's "Keys to the City" comes in a close second.

DJbruce
08-07-2008, 09:29 AM
I'm not sure. Halo 3 maps or the Crackdown cheat mode.

Bioshock's new achievement & plasmid were pretty cool
Conquest mode in Bad Company wuz a nice addition
Also, the free maps in Gears & Halo were great & real addictive

DevilGuy
08-08-2008, 01:08 AM
I'm sure this has been said but probably Cold Storage. They released a new map for free for Halo 3. I was so happy about it. :)

Aegis Wing
Totemball
Yaris

My favorite free download would be the COD4 theme.

Tym
08-08-2008, 03:35 AM
I'm gonna go with the Battlefield: Bad Company demo. I played the crap outta that, bought the full game and it STILL hasn't gotten old. I mean, I'm not clocking 10 hours a day or anything but it's been a while.

I think more shooters should test their multiplayer like that. Genius move.

RuggersAssassin
08-08-2008, 04:01 AM
Probably the conquest mode for BF:BC. It's not my favorite but it was free so I can't argue.

Ubidan
08-08-2008, 04:33 AM
Probably the Heroic Map Pack and Cold Storage for Halo 3.

Aegis Wing for games, it really is fun to play.

Thunderbolton

I'd say the Cold Storage map was one of my favourites.

Oh and the Dark Knight theme and gamerpics, went and got a US account so i could get these :)

I am sure she was.


But I thought that I should have been given points for playing Yaris. That was one of the worst games I have ever played.

kentarulez

EvilestBean
08-10-2008, 07:39 PM
I would have to go with Conquest mode for Battlefield and the batman theme lol. I might go and download the free Halo 3 map pack because im thinking of going back on Halo 3 online mode.

The free $50,000 you can download for The Godfather was awesome. Gave me instant access to the most expensive outfit in the game.

Groundogg
08-10-2008, 10:08 PM
Yaris was bad, Totemball almost killed me. I would say Aegis Wing, which is still free if you have a US account. Great game. Undertow was good, but I wouldn't have bought it.

Semp Pi
08-10-2008, 10:10 PM
I'm partial to my gamer picture, which came in a free pack way back when to promote season 3 of BSG I think.

The pack had most of the major characters from the show (Athena/Boomer, Number 6, Gaius Baltar, Roslin, Starbuck, and both Adamas). "oVo Pandora oVo" uses the Number 6 picture from the pack.

I've had a few people ask me about the pack, and I can't seem to find it anywhere on live. I did a reverse lookup through MGC and it came back that the pack is still there, but costs money now. I still haven't been able to find it.

DJbruce
08-10-2008, 10:10 PM
Actully my best free download was the 10 free Arcade games I got from Microsoft as part as a promotion that happend last year.

Hmm, well I'd have to say, since most of my downloads aren't free :P the best ones are the Guitar Hero 3 songs, like the boss battles, the 4th of july song, We Three Kings, the Halo music, etc.

FoxRacing1234
08-13-2008, 07:51 AM
Carcassone by far

mjc0961
08-13-2008, 01:12 PM
The only free download I've had that wasn't a game demo was Undertow, and I hate that game. So I'd throw the Heavy Weapon demo out there, because it let you play for a decent length of the game before making you buy, which gave me enough time to decide I liked it and then I bought it. But it occurs to me that I didn't actually download that demo. It was already on the hard drive when I got the 360. >_>

Would certainly have to be undertow for me. Played that game so much, and had so much fun with it. There's been other good free content I've gotten off of live, but being a full Live arcade game, that would have to be the best.

Steve50013
10-14-2008, 02:26 AM
Undertow for sure :)

Plus alot of other stuff I downloaded making the free download list ;)

I would have gladly paid 800 points for it, but this game is one of XBLA's best.

10-14-2008, 03:59 AM
When Undertow first came out it was free, and I love that game. Somebody else probably already said that. I didn't read the whole thread.

Also the Dark Knight picture pack, because Dark Knight was awesome. And I dunno if this counts, but my 360 came preloaded with an episode of the Andy Milonakis show. Hm.

I know Aegis Wing is not available in the Uk here ( ;_ ; ) but where did people get Totemball and Carcassone for free?

Technicly my best free download was either Dash of Destruction (it wasn't un-fun) or the Kane and Lynch expansion.

Although personally, I managed to pick up both XBLA compilation discs for 9 and got a free LIVE month (worth 4.50) with them, so i'd say I 'paid' for a live month and Pac Man Championship edition, and then got Texas Hold'em, Wik: Fable of Souls, Outpost Kaloki X, Bejeweled 2, Hardwood Backgammon, Boom Boom Rocket, Luxor 2, and Feeding Frenzy for free.(also comes with Geometry Wars 2 and Uno, but I had those already)

Technicly not free but hell of a bargain.

It was a straight up Doritos advert, even the thought of them asking for money for it offends.

It was the winner of some doritos game design competition or something, and it's just a 20 minute advert that gives you 200g for watching it :)
