AC Revelations free GwG
AC Unity $2.50 CD Keys

It's simply not worth buying Ubisoft games at this point. They all end up free.

Yup i've had the "Don't buy Ubisoft games new" rule for a while and I almost own all of em either free or from ridiculously cheap clearance sales

I'm always tempted but haven't succumbed yet.

Wait AC1 was $2.50 during the BC sale? I thought it was $5. I would have bought at $2.50

Already have AC3, but it being backwards-compatible now might get me to get around to playing The Tyranny of King Washington. I've had Rogue sitting waiting for a while but I felt like I ought to get around to finishing off the various shorter releases (Washington, Freedom's Cry, maybe Liberation HD)

Starting the 16th of June, Zoo Tycoon will be available in Japan. Non JP people can get it by switching store region at the bottom of the website.

This is a new game for other regions (in other words not max TCOB again lol) so it's basically a 5th free game.

Speaking of, whenever I follow Microsoft Store links I get served pages for the Korean store (ever since I redeemed Banner Saga 2 on it). Anyone know how to fix that? I've tried everything I can think of.

Clearing cookies often solves site-specific issues. For example, I've had GoG.com stop responding to clicks on links, both times this was solved by deleting cookies.
No idea why or how it solves things though...

Wait what? What's the deal with this then, you have to change everything to JP and keep it like that if you want to play Zoo Tycoon? I think I'd probably rather stick with Watchdogs..

No, you can change your region to Japan, start the download for Zoo Tycoon and the then change back to your region. Once the game has downloaded you can play it as you'd play any other game on your console.

Nope just change to Japan on the website or console, "buy", then change your region back. But it's not available until the 16th

I or someone else will post a guide/link on how to once it goes free. I was just posting it to say there's technically another gwg

Speedrunners is a blast. Wasn't expecting anything but ended up having a lot of fun playing with my brother.

It's like a mario kart platformer. You need to jump, wall jump, hookshot and slide across levels while throwing items at your enemies to get into first spot so you don't get eliminated.

If you have someone to play with I highly recommend checking it out.

Potential bonus GwG to be announced at E3?

Can't be Phantom Dust as that is 12.49. I know it says up to but they typically round up to the nearest pound not an extra 1.51 on.

Anyone else having trouble getting the Phantom Dust DLC? I can't buy it, it says it's not available on the console, or part of a pack on the website, but clicking on the link does nothing.

I'm installing the game, maybe it has to be done inside the game itself?

They still count it as a game. Go look at any of their sales where they advertise X amount of games on sale. It includes microtransactions/consumables. But it's not Phantom Dust anyways I'm pretty sure

Hells yeah that worked for me.
Played WatchDogs already on PC so i wasnt feeling it.

But Zoo Tycoon give me that shit!!!!!

P.S and Slightly off topic

My account is a UK account, my Xbox region is UK, but i since moved from the UK
Got Gears 4 from Amazon.co.uk but the codes for Gears of War and Gears of War 3 dont work.

Everyone said just change region on Xbox and it should work....but that shit dont work and i dont know if its because AmazonUK gears4 is from another region...all the printing says Ireland but i dont know the code for website Ireland.
