The Zoo Tycoon link seems to be down.

And when I search for it in the store and click the link it disconnects too.

Odd. Usually Microsoft doesn't seem to care if people change their region to get other games, maybe now they do?

Edit: It works on my laptop.

To be honest I'm way more interested in Zoo Tycoon than any of the other GwG games this month lol.

So thank you Japan!

I got Kalimba for free once by changing region and didn't get banned, so hopefully this works out.

Haha same here.

This was initially a terrible month for me. Already played Watch Dogs when it came out and hated it. Already had Dragon Age from EA Access. Don't care for Assassins Creed.

Zoo Tycoon, however, I had considered buying when I got my Xbox One, but forgot all about it. Started it last night and it seems pretty good. Way higher quality than you would probably expect.

It's worth getting DA:O even with EA Access because you keep the game forever on GWG as it's a 360 game

Also repoting for new page

Watch Dogs (XB1):

Dragon Age Origins (XB1&360):
https://marketplace.xbox.com/Product...5-d802454108c0

Zoo Tycoon (XB1 - make sure you are on the Japan store and the original price is scored out. On the confirmation screen it will say 0):

I wonder if I will still like it

When a game goes BC, does all of its DLC/expansions?

Yeah if you own them.
Go to 'manage game' to install them.

In my experience yes, whenever I've purchased a BC game all of the DLC has been made available to purchase also, but it's my experience not necessarily the rule unless someone says otherwise

Is Da:O better than Inquisition? Because I didn't like that game at all.

Thanks guys, I'll have to put some time into it then :).

I fought my way through the hinterlands and ultimately I night have been close to the end of Inquisition ( maybe ) but I just didn't enjoy my time with it.

Yup Origins is the peak Bioware formula. Each race and class origin story adds a nice sense of flavour for lore. You can pursue any questline and area at will, whereas Inquisition locks you with the Power grind.

Best party and writing in the series too. Although Varric is the best individual across the series in my opinion.

Grow Up is the sequel, Grow Home was never released on XB1 for some reason

That list makes sense. Whenever they announce games late it's always a pretty bad month

Should hopefully find out tomorrow the new additions to the game pass aswell

Oh my mistake! Not too shabby a month after all then.

Will be interesting to try Kane and Lynch, wonder if it's at all self-aware or it's as ridiculous as it seems on the surface.

Yikes. I know the quality of GWG is often totally subjective, but this seems like a really weak month. I wonder if the existence of Game Pass is going to have an impact on the quality of GWG going forward.

Do not own one game of it. Always wanted to try Grow Up. And my gf just started enjoying LEGO Star Wars, maybe we'll enjoy Pirates of the Caribbean as well.

Jesus, I literally almost picked up Kane and Lynch 2 today for 2 euros. I beat it on PS3 but I wanted the conveniece of the XOne since I love it so much.
Spent the money instead on Stranglehold, any chance of that one becoming BC anytime soon?
