Here's the draft for 2.0. Sorry this took so long. Let me know if there's anything I can change. Oh, and I ran out of characters, so they may have to check regions on the official website.

Q. Where can I find out what games will be free, and when?
A. Major Nelson will normally fill us on on when and what: http://majornelson.com
Pretty much every major gaming news site posts them as soon as they're revealed, too.

Q. Is this for new or old XBL members?
A. Any Xbox Live Gold subscriber has access to these games.

Q. Can I use 48 hour/14 day trials?
A. No. These do not make you a Gold member. But you can get one month of Gold, take off auto renew, and take advantage of these perks.

Q. Is the program available in my region?
A. Depends. Games vary between regions, so check if your region is supported @ Xbox.com.

Q. Once I put this in my purchase history, is it mine forever?
A. Yes. You don't even need to download the entire game. You can stop it as soon as it is in active downloads and retrieve it at any time. Even if you don't have enough hard drive space, add it to your downloads so you can download it at a later time.

Q. If I was not able to download a game while it was free, can I still get it after the end date?
A. No. Unfortunately, the stop date is the stop date.

Q. After I download this game, can I play it offline?
A. Yes.

Q. If I stop paying for Gold, do I keep my game?
A. Yes.

Q. Will the program extend onto the Xbox One?
A. Yes. Sometime in 2014.

Q. How long will the program run?
A. There are no plans to stop the Games With Gold program.

Looks great SunDevil! The bolded questions really help to find what you're looking for.

A couple adjustments I would make:
1. Q. Where can I find out what games will be free, and when?
Add that Major Nelson generally reveals the next free games on the last business day of the month

2. Q. Once I put this in my purchase history, is it mine forever?
Clarify that you don't even have to start the download. All you need to do is "Confirm Purchase" either on your dashboard or xbox.com

Other than that, everything looks perfect. Thanks for doing this!

Spartacus Legends was available before June 2013, has always been a F2P (with Gold) game, and had absolutely nothing to do with the GwG program.

Because there was no valid reason to make a 2.0. Some ocd'er wanted a "cleaner" topic and suggested a new one, one or two people agreed with him/her, and the TC, for whatever reason, didn't realize any new topic will be cluttered in the exact same way as this one. Hopefully TC will close the 2.0 topic and continue here instead of making a mess of new topics every time someone wants one. It's not like it's difficult to go to the end of a topic and look upwards for the most recent info. Some people...

That "OCDer" was me, and no, I don't have any mental disorders. Your overreaction to the perceived problem, however, might indicate a case of manic-depressive disorder, also known as bipolar disorder.

The new topic added valuable information and made the post easier to read. I'm not sure how the new topic is "cluttered" as you describe it. And one updated topic is hardly a "mess of new topics."

Anyway, I've never even seen you before on this board, so who are you to come in here and tell us what the board does and doesn't need?
