I might go post a thread in the Tech Centre part of the forum, if anyone wants more info to try and help me out. It looks like the controller recognises it but just won't connect.
Mine works fine on windows 7, make sure your adapater is fully updated, it won't update everything automatically you have to search for drivers sometimes.

EDIT: Nevermind, got it working with some proper f***ing drivers from MS rather than the BS it comes with on-disc thanks to a helpful review on Amazon.

Huh, I came here to thank you for pointing out Battlestations Pacific, but it turns out I already have it Past Steam sales have added so much filler to my library that I never noticed it. I almost bought the game on GMG a few weeks back for the Genre tournament too, glad I opted out of it at the time.

I'm considering Section 8 just because that's stupid cheap, but I remember not caring for the demo back in the day and there's little to be done without multiplayer which I imagine is completely dead. Fuel is also up for consideration due to price alone. The rest will need a daily deal for consideration.

Grabbed Dark Souls for $7.49 (daily deal). At this point the only games I really want on a Daily Deal are Street Fighter x Tekken, Lost Planet 2, and Bulletstorm.

The servers for Section 8 are down so you can't even play multiplayer but I'm thinking of picking it up for the single player...

Just a heads-up; it seems that DiRT 2 has two unobtainable achievements since the "Dirtnet" servers were shut down. These are: "Tourney" and "Ain't Afraid of No Ghost"

It's still actually a pretty decent game though, almost 4 years on; even with the other drivers' voices.

Blacklight Tango Down - £0.75 (guessing $0.99)

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/Pr...5-d80458410a6d

I know it was this price awhile ago when Microsoft had a sale on a few GFWL games.

12 achievements, all online, are there enough people playing it to be able to get them all? It looks like a bare minimum of 100 games on Insane to be able to get enough XP.

Doesn't look much like the original Red Faction!
Has a hefty TA score of over 4k; might be tricky getting this to 1,000GS

Do people play multiplayer anymore or would boosting be the only way to complete the whole game?

Bioshock 2 GFWL - £3.49 from Greenman Gaming.

Also Bioshock 1 GFW - £2.49 from the same place but no achievements obviously.


Don't think these are the cheapest they have been but good prices nonetheless.

Are you sure about Dark Void? I was under the impression that the only version of Dark Void with GFWL achievements was the one on the GFWL Marketplace, bought any other way I thought had no achievements.

Cheers, I know the disc version wasn't GFWL and heard it never got patched to add it. I was under the impression that the Steam version didn't either but could be wrong.

You were spot on, the Steam version is not GFWL.

Shame, as that would have been an easy 955GS for the price of half a pint!
