It took them long enough to get around to doing the same promotion as Sony.

Do they bank the games? I haven't been on in a while, so if I miss a month, do I get to download 4? Do we get to pick the games, or is it the clearance bin type freebies?

Not sure if you will be able to download a game that was missed during the release period. I do know however, that once you download the game that it is bound to your account for good.

The rumored free games for July are Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3.

If its two free games a month and Fable 3 is one of them, what's the other?

Edit: just went to Xbox.com and it states that fable 3 is 19.99.

I wish that was true. You have to sign in to your Xbox console to see it for free.

That's weird, it was free on Xbox.com a few days ago.
I read about it on a deals website (Woot Deals) and went to Xbox.com, clicked through the purchase steps and the next time I turned on my Xbox the downloads started.

Login to Xbox live and go to the Browse games section of the games tab. There should be a tab that says "Games for Gold". You can download Fable 3 from there. There is also a tab that will give you information about the promotion.

Fable 3 is not part of this promotion. It is free right now as a promotion tied to the announcement of Fable Anniversary.

The first 2 free games are going to be Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 2.

How is that a problem? Every time I saw something was free and I wasn't home I would sign in to Xbox.com and queue up the download so once I got home and turned on the console it would download.

I do the same thing. I queued it from xbox.com through my phone a few days ago and it worked just fine for me.

Even though it's free do you have to have a credit card assigned to your Gold account?

No. When I "purchased" it I swapped payment method to Xbox points instead of cash and then purchased it for 0 points.
