I'm gonna get all of them, as they are free. Borrowed Crackdown off a mate years ago when I got my first 360. Haven't played any of the Dead Rising games, willing to give them a try for free.

It's all good, Cunning - quantity of updates shouldn't come at the expense of basic proof-reading :) I need to be stricter with myself.

My inner pedant kicks in here and says there's actually three. Sadly Case West is absent for some reason. Unless they do a Case West/Off the Record set at a later time.
