All my characters are back to level 1 and there was no hint at a Borderlands-style 360->X1 cloud transfer. I don't think the X1 games have access to the 360's cloud storage either for it to automatically find it there unless you're playing the BC version of a 360 game.

Sucks for those of us who didn't keep a relatively old console around though.

Looks like I won't be able to transfer my save.

I do agree with that. MS really needs to allow X1 games to access the old 360 cloud for these saves.

I noticed that when I check my Microsoft Account balance now it shows that the credits added from the reward site expires in a year.

Also noticed I have $3.48 that expires in a month Expiration is so freakin dumb.

This game doesn't use the Cloud save, but rather a special upload/download transfer in the same way that you can transfer a game save from the PS3 to the Vita.

I know. In other words a "Borderlands-style" transfer

Hence the need for MS to allow X1 games to access the regular 360 storage (read-only, fine) to make things easier for their customers.

You should be able to use the Backwards Compatibility version of the original 360 game to do the transfer too, once that is released. Apparently the original game saved to the gamertag:

Thanks, I didn't even know you could check that online. I agree, it's dumb as hell that stuff can even expire.

NewEgg is selling $100 Xbox credit for $85 with promo code EMCKKAT37

Not a huge deal, but 15% extra on future deals might be handy, especially with the year-end sale they do.

Pretty cool breakdown on the Games with Gold games for 2015. I've done a pretty shitty job about remembering to grab some of the 360 games recently.

Bringing back this thread for a short time announcement, but looks like Indie games are hitting the dust (the usual you will be able to download your old purchased games but everything else is being delisted). You can read more about it here.

It sucks that a lot of these games will sort of just "disappear" for newer gamers. Although there was a lot of crap, there were some good games in there. Also MS hasn't made any of the XBLIG backwards compatible on the XB1, so the only way to play any of them on console is with a 360.

Ironically, some of the better/more popular games are still available for purhcase/play on PC, since porting from XNA to PC was possible, and Windows can still run these older executables.

Going forward, it looks like developers may be able to move their older games from XNA to MonoGame for publishing on PS4 and XB1:

The XBLIG Bleed was recently ported to Xbox One and PS4.

There doesn't seem to be an exhaustive list of games that were released in the store, except for Microsoft's own store listing:

Agreed on all points, this weekend I'll take a look and grab what's left and post here any "must haves". There were some real gems in there and it's a shame that it's going to dust.

I think I bought a few of these over the years, but doesn't look like an area that will be missed much.

I found a site that specialized in XBLIG reviews that has a "leaderboard" of the top 40 games the site reviewed. The page also has a list of a few readers' top tens as well:

It looks like almost all of the highly rated ones are available on steam.

Yeah, although they can be more expensive. Dead Pixels is $1 on XBLIG, but $2.99 on Steam, although I imagine it goes on sale on Steam from time to time.

Re: The official Xbox Live Arcade/Indie Games/Game Room Thread of Space Bucks for Fun

Welp, last night I took a look at what I had, and what was on the indy list.

I can safely recommend the following four:

Bonded Realities
Breath of Death VII
Cthulhu Saves the World
Johnny Carnage

The first three fit into the 8/16 bit RPG (think the first couple of Final Fantasies) and Johnny is a pretty darn good shooter, in the vein of Contra.

I am looking at the following (and Steam isn't an option for me) after running through about the first 800-1000 titles (there are 3404 I believe):
DLC Quest $1.00
Hartacon Tactics $0.99
DLC Quest: Live Freeminum or Die $1.00
Unholy Heights $2.99 (combined an apartment simulation and tower defense, seemed delightful)
Penny Arcade's Rain-Slick 4 $4.99 (a little pricey, but seemed good)
Aphelion $2.99
Aphelion 2 $2.99 (both of these called back to my Phantasy Star days)
Evil Quest $1.00
Doom & Destiny $4.99 (has that 8/16 bit RPG vibe...but this one might miss the cut)
Penny Arcade's Rain Slick 3 $2.99
Arcade Craft $2.99 (I think we've talked about this one before in here, but it's where you run an arcade and it's pretty hard from what I remember)
Wizorb $1.00 (basically Arkanoid with a few cute twists).

Edit:
From that Top 40 list (thanks Jay!), I'll also take a look at:
Magicians & Looters $2.99 (Metroid-vania)
Shipwreck $2.99 (Zelda clone)

Obviously, I probably won't grab all of them...but just what i'm looking at (and I needed some place to write it down and I tend to lose paper ).

2nd EDIT:
My writeup on this (thanks again to Jay for the links):
