Gucamelee is absolute garbage. Uninstalled after first achievement.

for clarification we are debating two different issues here...

1. XB1's GwG is sub par in comparison to other "free" games programs including the 360
So far they have started the program almost 6 months behind the competition, with mobile games and niche platformers
2. Guacamelee is a terrible game
I don't think it's a terrible game, I think it doesn't compare to the value of other "free" games program...Imagine if they gave away angry birds next month...some will be happy, some will be indifferent because it's free, some will feel slighted because better "free" titles are available for other systems...other systems are getting 3-pointers, and MS seems content with giving free throws
...I'm running out of ways to explain this simple concept

Followed by a ton of sites giving it 90/100 (9/10) scores.

Are all these sites Xbox One worshiping Xbots? They are spread out between PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, 360, Vita etc..


none of those links work...
but I find it highly disturbing that a 50mb 2D platformer is getting 9's and 10's...and the last Gears of War complete with MP got a 7.5...
LMAO really? I don't remember Guacamelee in the running for GOTY

I understand these sites are pro underdog...it really showed when they gave titanfall 9's and 10's...but we the people should protest. At the very least these scores need to be grouped with other mobile 50mb games...

it's just stupid to give a 3hr tidbit indie game the same score as a full fledged title like Dead Souls 2

How, exactly, does the Mb size of a game relate to how good it is, or whether it is good at all? That really doesn't make much sense. I can name 20 NES games, easily, that are better than Gears of War. Definitely some Game Boy and GBA games, too. Those are all under 50Mb.

"it's just stupid to give a 3hr tidbit indie game the same score as a full fledged title like Dead Souls 2"

So, you think Indie games should be judged on a different scale than retail games? Should they also have to use a separate public bathroom and water fountain? A game is a game.

I was just fixing to point that out, that the free games for xbone are nowhere near the quality of the 360. You get full fledged top tier games, whereas xbone gives you indie crap, except Spartan assault, which really isn't that great. They could easily port some 360 games to give to us.

We talking, GoW 3 or Judgment? Because 3 is one of the better games ever created.
