Buy Bastion, From Dust, etc. = Get The Maw for Free!

#1 Posted by Luke (1609 posts) -

If you're planning on buying From Dust next week, or still haven't picked-up Bastion yet, you may want to do those things through the Microsoft Store.  They will give you The Maw for free!   
 
Here are the links:  

 It also shouldn't mess-you-up, if you're trying to get Crimson Alliance, by purchases all 5 Summer of Arcade Games!  It mentions it in the fine print at the bottom of each page.   
 
That could potentially be 7 games for the price of 5!  Cheers!

I thought they already gave everyone The Maw for free via email? I got it, and I usually never get stuff like that.

@Luke: What's lame is that you don't get to use Microsoft Points. Thanks for posting here, though I already saw it elsewhere. 
 
I like seeing game deals on Giant Bomb, too, once in a while.

I got the Maw free a while ago, but thanks.

Hey cool, so I just look up The Maw and download it free now? I'll go try it out.

So hey, what happens if I bought Bastion before this was even announced? I got it yesterday and saw nothing about The Maw, and now when I look up The Maw, it's still $10.

Am I the only person who bought The Maw.

Nope.  There are at least two of us.  Got it back when it first came out.

Yeah, it wasn't a deal until 1 day after Bastion was released, I believe.  Also, you have to buy it through the Microsoft Store, which believe it or not, is not actually the same thing as Microsoft's XBOX Marketplace.  
 
I guess hopefully, you'll be interested in From Dust and get this deal anyway.  I know I'd be kinda miffed too, if I wasn't going to buy From Dust myself.  
 
Does that make sense?

@Luke: Well, I'm just hoping From Dust turns out to be really good.

Hmmm, buy the only two games I want from summer of arcade and get a 3rd game free?

Sounds good to me.

#12 Posted by Chris2KLee (2329 posts) -

Hmm, seems like a good deal. Still need to get Bastion.

Too bad I already bought Bastion.

Nah. I bought it for PC and XBLA.

Well this seems to be a needlessly awkward implementation.

I bought it too. feel like a fool now if everyones getting it for free.

Any way to buy from the MS store with our MS Space dollars? I already bought a $50 card to pick up Bastion/From Dust and would hate to go spend another $15 but I'd really like The Maw (yes of course, I could buy it and the 3 chapters with the left over points, may end up doing that)

Wish I would have known. Would have bought Bastion there instead. :/

I don't.  Bought it two years ago and loved it.  I have no problem with them offering it as part of some deal to people that may not have ever played it any other way.    Now if I had just bought it last week or something, then I might would be kinda annoyed.

It looks like this is US only. The billing address requires a state and zip code and the offer isn't available on the Canadian version of the store.

#21 Posted by JasonLeeson (201 posts) -

Yes FYI:
 
Offer only valid on the U.S. Microsoft Store website; not valid on previous orders or at Microsoft Store retail locations. U.S. residents only.
 
Bummer.

Good thing I read the fine print and didn't get this, I'm in Canada!

#23 Posted by JasonLeeson (201 posts) -

Here in Europe, we pay for our Maw.

#25 Posted by PoToSkull (104 posts) -

Has anyone been able to get this deal today?  Seems like microsoft took the linked pages down after the early release fiasco and I can't seem to get a page with the deal.
