Raptr Handing Out Free Copies

#1 Posted by Cincaid (3048 posts) -

I hope this doesn't count as advertisement for Raptr, but they're handing out thousands (?) of free copies of Joe Danger 2 for XBL later today (the page simply says available "soon" right now). They did a similar thing with the Minecraft XBL release (that's how I got my copy).

The catch? Well, you have to be a Raptr member, link your account to a Facebook account, and also have one out of a few selected games already played.

Here's the page with full details, and I thought I'd just get the word out there for those interested. Free games are always appreciated in my book.

Shit, it's not pulling my data correctly for X360 games. I have most of the games it's looking for but all are 'Unranked', and I need at least one to be at 'Experienced' rank.

@DarkFury: Have you got the desktop app for Raptr? Quite sure you need to have that for it to track most games correctly.

@Cincaid: It just updated and added my progress. Now to wait until the offer goes live. Thanks for the heads up!

@DarkFury: Did it just update your progress on its own after you waited a little while?

#6 Posted by DarkFury (442 posts) -

@bwheeeler: Yep. I signed up today and it picked up all my achievements, but not on a per-game basis for X360. After maybe an hour, it updated and I'm now 'Experience' in some of the eligible titles.

Good thing I'm Elite on 'Splosion Man! Now we play the waiting game.

Thanks for the heads up, redeemed! Usually Raptr is pretty great about spamming me with emails and letting me know when free stuff is available, but not this time...

Facebook account?

Fuck that. I deleted mine a while ago I'm not reactivating it just for a game

Look into this guys, I've never used Raptr before - after 15 minutes of noodling I got a free copy of Joe Danger 2. Thanks for the heads up duder!

Good looking out man, got mine just before they ran out.

Good that people got some copies, managed to get one myself!

"Due to interanal technical difficulties, Joe Danger 2 has been paused." That sounds reeeeeally dirty. I went home for lunch and came back to see they had started and stopped this... really hoping to get a code out of it.

Got myself one too. This is almost as good as the time they gave out codes for Minecraft on 360.

Apparently Ireland wasn't an eligible country for the Joe Danger 2 giveaway. Awesome. :(

#18 Posted by bwheeeler (744 posts) -

Well, I've played it a bit, and it's really a lot more like Joe Danger than I expected. That's not bad, necessarily, but it's a little underwhelming.

You know whats weird, raptr shows all the achievements I unlocked in Arkham City PC but on xbox.com it still shows them as locked, GFWL is so broken...
