Long ago when the first episode became free, I of course downloaded and played it without issue. So seeing the remaining content as the Games with Gold for this month (October '15) was great. However, I can't even play it now. The game loads fine and after selecting episode one it goes to a loading screen for a bit then I get the error "The device containing the game has been removed. Press A to return to the Xbox 360 Dashboard."
I deleted everything and cleared the cache (resetting my xbox between the steps) and re-downloaded just the first part. This allowed me into episode one but for only about 5 minutes or so, Right after shooting the guard and yelling to the girl to get help it freezes and the error pops up again.
Now I know this isn't a problem with my storage device being 'removed' as from what I've read people have been having this issue since the game released, but the only discussions I've come across are the later content, not the first.
Question is, has anyone come across a way around this error or a way to fix it? Or did Microsoft really put a potentially broken game for many up as GwG for the second half of this month?
