Who wants some games? Please take these off my hands.

I don't mean to sound insensitive, but that is - and has been from the beginning - Microsoft's policy. They offer those promotions to entice people to sign up for a full price recurring membership, which they can't do with a gift card or prepaid card. Also, I understand that you were upset, but I find myself sypathetic to the customer service agent in this case. It's clear to me that I don't have the patience for that type of work.
I find myself in a giving mood today for a whole bunch of reasons. So here, have some games! These all end at 7pm EST on Friday 11/15.
@mattadord: In fact, only one SEC favorite (according to the Vegas oddsmakers) wasn't upset today.
The unfortunate thing is that even after tonight's game, if Alabama and Oregon both win out and don't have any too-close-for-comfort games against bad teams, I don't see Florida State making the title game. Based on what's happened to this point, they'd be as deserving as anyone. They certainly have the best win of anyone so far (even though I'd have pulled the starters a little sooner, myself).
Is there any kind of scoring on a per mission basis (a la Ballad of Gay Tony) vice the standard binary mission completion status?
I've been to a few for games. I got GTA IV, one of the Call of Duty games, a Halo game (Reach, maybe?), and LA Noire all at midnight of their respective launch days. I think my days of midnight launches are over, though, now that I work full time. Unless things start coming out on weekends, I am quite satisfied to come home on Tuesday (or Friday in the case of the new consoles) and have my new release waiting for me at the mail box.
I had to consciously stop myself from doing this exact thing while taking tests in math and engineering classes back during college. I find that talking through a problem out loud helps me make sure that all of the relevant details are considered.
