Defense Grid 2 was okay for a free game and since my expectations were so low it definitely exceeded them.. Some of the achievements are irritating. There's no incentive to play harder modes and 130/1000 achievement points require tedious grinding. All of the game variations (grinder, no red towers, focal point, frozen core, etc.) all play out the exact same way. They threw in 2 multiplayer achievements (worth 20/1000), which are hard to get because nobody plays the multiplayer. Not to mention the multiplayer seemed kinda dumb...so I played once, got both achievements and have no desire to try again.

@livedreamplay: Yes you're right. I'm sorry I thought it was this month because you could still download until yesterday.

@Arvidst: Yeah now they extend in to the next month. I always get them in the first day they pop up so I tend to forget.

@skyhighgam3r: "puzzle-garbage covered in lame crap like unicorns." that actually is a massive critical success. But don't let this stop you from judging the book by the cover, Mr. Adult.

Already had Peggle, Games with Gold isn't so good this month. Can't wait to see what will be available next month!

@GH05T-666: hopefully next month is better for both xbox and playstation. I'm hoping with it being E3 month they'll bring out some big games and a few surprises.

I love Peggle. Haven't tried Costume Quest 2, mediocre reviews, but my opinion is all that matters. ;)
