    Some of you may have known that a week or two ago Microsoft promised a free arcade game as an apology for Live's recent problems. They gave us "Undertow"

    Kind of sucks for anyone who already has the game. But for the people who dont have it, it should do. The good news is that I hear its actually a good game, so enjoy! Before to download it next Wednesday. Thats the 23rd of this month.

    I would have preferred them just to credit us with 800 microsoft points instead of picking what game they give us. Meh, I'll download it since it'll be free, but I don't think it's a game I'll like too much.

    If I were MS and I was running a company I wouldnt give us 800 MS points either. They know that doing that will mess up their sales. So they gave us a game thats not selling well and only for 3 days.

    I just dont like the fact that they are "apologizing" yet they still haven't fixed the problem.

    If they gave everyone 800 ms points it would just make LIVE even more laggy. This way a ton of people will be playing it so it might become a pretty decent game

    Supposed to be pretty decent with a 79/100 at metacritic. Most of the reviews were pretty good. Apparently its a shooter, it could be fun. Hell is free so i dont care. I would have been happy if they simply fixed Live :/ I want to play some CoD
