Any of these games have achievements? I thought M$ make the developers charge for the games/DLC if it has achievements.

Also good effort for putting this together :-).

The first 3 (Aegis Wing, Pinball, and Tinker) do have achievements. The rest don't.

Well, I'm assuming Pinball does. Not positive.

And I hate how Microsoft does that, I want free L4D dlc.

Look at the entire thread here.

The Lips Store is also a free download, btw.

Edit: You might also want to add Game Room since it is technically free and can net you around 100 GS for free.

Pinball FX 2 free?

Based on the description, it sounds like if you already own Pinball FX then you can get the second one free (and I'd imagine it'd cost for everyone else.)

The "Other" category isn't really Arcade games at all too.
Just sayin'. They're just easier ways of browsing available DLC content.

So, pretty much the only actual "free XBLA game" available is Aegis Wing, as Dash of Destruction was taken down a bit back, and Yaris before that.

EDIT:

I found this from Joystiq:

Quote:
It arrives as part of Microsoft's new Game Feast promotion, a Summer of Arcade-caliber lineup taking place during the holiday season. Instead of giving it the usual sequel treatment, Zen Studios is considering Pinball FX 2 as a platform -- like Hasbro Family Game Night, the "game" can be downloaded free of charge. It won't include any tables, but you'll be able to import all of your original Pinball FX content, free of charge, and add new tables via custom content packs.

Not really. Most new posts are just repeats of what someone else posted a page before or are somewhere along the lines of "cool, free stuff" or "thank you for the thread." I'll admit that I have seen 1 or 2 free things posted in that thread that I haven't seen in more up-to-date threads, but once or twice isn't very much

So it sounds like Pinball FX 2 will have achievements based on specific new tables, otherwise, people with the old Pinball FX tables would be able to snag them for free.

It's worth noting that Aegis Wing is not available in the UK - I don't know about the rest of them...

If you add pinball FX2 you could add Family game Night and Game room as well since they are basicly free but you have to purchase the playable content in it.
What about Hexic btw.? Is it downloadable from the marketplace?
And actually I think Halo Waypoint and Lips Musicstore and stuff are no games!

I wouldn't say FX2 is really free, what about this Tinker then are the achievements easy?

It does, and is on the marketplace finally.

Also, to answer your earlier question, Dash of Destruction and Harms Way are both free XBLA games that have really easy achievements.

They put Hexic HD in the marketplace.
After hearing too much complains of people accidentally deleting their copies of the thing.

Harms Way (which, by the way, should have an apostrophe. It hurts my OCD...) is still available and free, but Dash of Destruction is no longer available on the marketplace (at least not in the U.S.).

Dash of Destruction is no longer listed, however it is still on their server. So if you have previously downloaded it, you can go to you Download History and download it again. Same goes for Yaris. And since both are free, I believe there is no DRM on them like regular Arcade Games.

If you have a windows phone, there are a couple free games. Flowerz, and I believe if you're AT&T ilomilo is free as well (it may be sprint, I forget which....alls I know is I didn't get it free on Verizon).

Flowerz is crazy hard to 100% though

Doritos Crash Course is also free.
