MS do not allow free DLC.

Pretty much. We've heard from numerous devs and companies like Valve about Microsofts stance against free content, it's well documented at this point. They don't have an official ruling on it but they make it as difficult as possible with numerous obstacles and costs in the certification process. The only exceptions seem to be games they publish or items to promote to peripherals like the chatpad or Kinect. Microsoft's corporate culture is losing the indies already and I wouldn't be shocked if the publishers are more heavy handed in the next round of consoles as they know the manufacturers will be fighting against several different gaming markets now.

Anyway they made some nice changes to Cold Stream although a few of the panic events still feel way too long. It's definitely a large improvement over the early betas though.
