1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    So yesterday I was browsing through all the demos on my console and I happened to find Doom, I played through it and then accidently hit the button to buy the whole game. When I did this I noticed that it was free to download, so I tried to download it with no success, so then I went to the game marketplace and searched for it, but only Doom 2 was available. So does anybody know why the first Doom is missing from the arcade now?

    Not really, you more so beat someone to the punch of SPAM.

    Do it again and you've earned yourself an infraction. I would link to the rules, but I think you know that doesn't belong in said thread.

    That happens sometimes. I know that both Hexic and Dash of Destruction are both gone as well.

    You could aways try and get the collectors Doom 3 on Xbox, the CE has the entire trilogy.

    All of Midway's games are gone as well. Off the top of my head they had Joust, Smash TV and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 up. Though, for those games, that was because Midway went bankrupt and was subsequently purchased by Warner Bros.

    I hear you can still re-download the games if you purchased them prior to delisting, or get them on a new account if you have an old, valid download voucher, otherwise they're no longer available. Microsoft was supposed to give advance warning when something was being taken down, but I don't believe they've ever actually said anything about any of them.
