Hi Zuners,

Yes, I am just as excited about Zune Games as you are. However, I'd like to make a request. Please try to link the games to the originally submitted forum threads/blog posts regardless of where you get it from. Aside from being respectful to the creator(s), there are also several other reasons:

1. Games may be updated. I don't think people would like old, outdated program if there's much better and newer versions out!

2. A place for support. I'm sure the game developers themselves will provide the best help possible to users having troubles with their game.

3. In return, we will never directly link to your game! We'll always link to the download/info page, not the download URL.

That is a reasonable request, and I support it.

Thanks, lpxx.

I usually try to avoid a direct link to the download, but there were one or two in my posts under the Games and Applications list.

I just fixed them (and updated them).

I understand fully. It will take awhile to fix all the links but I will do my best. Thanks.

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for doing this. In those first few days a lot of us (well, the two or three of us programmers) who made games were pretty upset to see videos, images, and links all over with no real credit. I'm glad you guys are being respectful of that. Can't wait to get some more games done for you guys.
