Title: Games with Gold + Other free games!
Post by: A Simple Gamer on June 13, 2013, 12:16:08 PM
Xbox one news
Quote
Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion, in which Xbox Live Gold subscribers get access to free games each month as part of their membership, is coming to Xbox One, according to the company.

Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb says details on how Microsoft will implement Games with Gold on Xbox One are coming "later in 2014." On Xbox 360, Microsoft has been giving away two downloadable games each month to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Microsoft announced its Games with Gold promotion in June, promising free downloads of titles like Halo 3, Assassin's Creed 2, Fable 3 and more. In October, Microsoft said it would extend the promotion as an "ongoing benefit" for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.


From Xbox live- "As our way of saying thanks, we are giving all Gold Members free games. Each specially selected, fan-favorite game will be available for a limited time so go grab them before they're gone-and keep them. Download 2 new bonus games every month. There will be two games each month. Each game will only be free for a half month period of time."

"Oh wise Mr. ASG, how do I get said games?" You say.
It's Simple: Go to Games, Browse Games, Featured and download your free games of the month.

*Update*
Games with gold arrives to Xbox One starting June 2014!

Free games list:

The small print had said that each game was free for half a month time period. So I assume that fable doesn't have a long free time left. We'll see though

It's not been cancelled, it's not coming this month unless it's the 16-31 July free game.
I didn't see them before say it was going to be in July, hopefully it's in August.

Someone was telling me the other day about the PS network. That they don't have to pay to play online & they have a deal for something like £40 per year and you get to download some free games each month.
This month they got Battlefield 3, Saints Row 3, Unit 13 for the Vita, and maybe another. i can't remember.
Month before was Hitman Absolution & some others i don't remember either.

With the xbox im paying to play online, more than £40 per year & the 'free games they offer as a 'reward are crappy old games which are not in demand at all anymore, and like you said, can get for next to nothing anywhere.

This along with the knowledge of the plans for the next xbox, which is nothing technically new, and probably no TM:F, Microsoft can go suck a fat one.

I will sell my profile sometime soon while it still has some value.

Exactly. PS+ is a much better deal for a payed subscription, that (at least for now) is not even required for online play.

Xbox Live is a mediocre, overpriced, limited and ad-riddled service that is simply not worth paying for. I'm still baffled that they can get away with obligatory Gold subscription for access to media streaming services like Netflix, services that you ALREADY pay for on top of.

PS4 will require a payed subscription [PS+] for online play from what I hear, but at least you get your money's worth in free games and proper deals.

Couldn't download Fable III because Xbox LIVE is apparently not 'officially' supported in my region. Ironically enough, I took $15 out of my wallet AFTER the FIII was no longer free to see if it worked and I could buy and download it without issue.

Other than that I'm looking forward to not be able to download the rest of the games coming these next few months to Xbox LIVE® for free.

Games that, as I've argued, are best-selling and you can get for a few buckets at Gamestop, and that MS is offering solely to celebrate their new console.

Pre-june there was no such thing as free games on Xbox LIVE other than those few specifically designed with FTP in mind i.e Happy Wars.

Deals are scarce and are often not that good. Nowhere near the craze of, say, Steam sales. Microsoft doesn't seem to grasp the concept of digital media, given that GoD versions of newly released games are still being sold at retail $60 months after release while you can get the physical game for only a nickel at Amazon or Gamestop.

Sony has been doing the free monthly games things for well over 2 years I believe.

Xbox live seems to have a new sale every week. Plus world of tanks, project sparks, and killer instincts are all going to be free to play, and they've said theres going to be more. They're going to release a few free games a month from now on, and halo 3 and assassins creed 2 are two examples they've announced will be free

I think it would be best for everyone to not argue or speculate about either consoles, we have no idea at this point because none of us have them. Save the arguments for when we have all the facts, both consoles seem good and are similar even though Microsoft went in a different direction but people afraid of change made them change their mind.

Umm I hate to break it, but Assassins Creed II being "free" is really "free plus pay for the tax of the game". It's literally prompting me to get MS points or input a credit card...  :((

EDIT: Oops, if you decide to go the "credit card" route it prompts you to pay the tax, but if you switch to "pay with MS points", it's free? Strange....

With the new dashboard update, all your MS points have been switched to currency, it never gave me the option to switch to credit card but it let me download without a problem. :)

No... Definitely Ubisoft... Why do you ask? Because of the true events tag when the game loads up?
Title: Re: Games with Gold + Other free games!
Post by: Achronis on July 25, 2013, 08:31:54 PM
It was kind of a joke related to the countless conspiracy theories and their vague connections to historical events that plague the main storyline.

Particularly the copy-paste of the Ancient Astronauts theory with the First Civilization. I may be a bit harsh, but I've seen all this stuff before and I'm sick of it, really spoiled the story for me.

Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed the game, though.

"Dead Rising 2 and Crackdown will be available for free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers in August as part of Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion.

That's according to two Polish gaming sources apparently familiar with the matter. News of the games first popped up on Xbox 360 Online Center, before Polish retailer Ultima posted promotional artwork showing Crackdown as the first of the duo to launch (thanks, OXM).

Games with Gold provides two free Xbox 360 titles to Gold subscribers every month - one on the 1st, the other on the 16th.

The current title is Assassin's Creed 2, which you have just hours left to download for free. You'll have access to the game forever once it's in your download history - even if you stop subscribing.

Games with Gold has widely been seen as a response to Sony's PlayStation Plus service. That offers a much wider selection of games to download, although your access to them only lasts as long as you remain subscribed."

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-07-31-microsofts-next-free-games-for-xbox-360-gold-subscribers-spotted

It'll be announced and confirmed later today or early tomorrow but I managed to find this, in short.
Dead Rising 2 and Crackdown, didn't say in which order.

If we're seeing Dead Rising 2, Crackdown, Halo 3, Assassins Creed 2.
Maybe it's to get people hyped for the next gen games such as DR3, Crackdown 3, Assassins Creed 4 and the next Halo game.

I think September might be Halo 3+Forza, that would be a good month. :D

Magic 2013 is amazing. But I didn't like rainbow six Vegas very much. Maybe its because I played it after playing its sequel and everything was worse...

Better Luck next month maybe? ;)

I do look forward to see how these games are, never played them so it will be interesting. Hopefully Halo 3 is Next month so it wont release the same month as the Xbox One. October needs Halo 3 and another game that people love. I would like to see a range of games so maybe puzzles or racing games. It'll get boring fast if they keep the majority as shooters.

Fable 3 was the best game they gave out so far, Halo 3 when that releases will take over. :P

Post by: Not Actually Atlas on September 25, 2013, 05:41:37 PM
The Might and Magic franchise has been around for decades now. Since its dawn in 1986 the franchise has seen dozens of games and multiple spin-offs, and while hardcore gamers agree that it's a powerhouse in the realm of strategy games it's safe to say that for most gamers out there the series has lost some serious steam as years go on. For that reason alone I'd expect some gamers to roll their eyes at a Might and Magic DS release; especially one that dons a new anime-influenced look. I picked the game up for the first time at this year's E3 with a common notion: "Well, this is some spin-off Might and Magic game...looks nice, but not sure I care." The end result: my preconceptions couldn't have been farther from the truth. Ubisoft and independent developer Capybara Games (known best for its work on the award-winning puzzler Critter Crunch) have put a surprising exclamation mark on the end of DS's 2009 with a game that screams "sleeper hit of the year." DS is a crowded market filled with some seriously top-notch games, but there's no doubt Might and Magic deserves to sit with the best of the best.

First things first, though. Might and Magic isn't a traditional game within the series, and as such it's a game that doesn't expect you to know or even care about Might and Magic's illustrious past. This is the first game in a new franchise, titled Clash of Heroes, and if it wasn't for the marketing power behind the Might and Magic name players would have no idea it was even taken from the same concepts. In every way, shape, and form, Clash of Heroes is an original IP. It's new for Ubisoft, it's new for Capy Games, and it's new for gamers. In all honesty I actually wish it didn't hold the Might and Magic name, as that implies something other than what it is. Toss out all those preconceptions though: this is a must-play strategy game on DS.


 
Check out the new launch trailer by clicking above.

 
 Clash of Heroes could best be described as a mix of role-playing game and card battler elements, mixed with some seriously strategic unit movement and open-ended customization. The battle mechanic has two players facing each other, with the front lines pointing towards the gap between the DS's two screens. Each player alternates by taking their turn -- usually allowing for three "moves" -- and then control is passed over to their opponent. Battles kick off with each set of armies rushing into place in a random formation, but from there it's all up to how you want to play the game. A horizontal connection of three like-colored units results in a wall, whereas vertical stacking -- almost like a game of Solitaire -- connects the units into a formation. Each type of unit has different stats and limitations, including a specific charge time before their attack (measured in turns) and attack power. As turns go on formations tick down in charge time while building up power, eventually attacking up towards the other army in an attempt to breakthrough and deal damage to the opposing hero.

It's a bit much to take in at first, but after seeing the game of attack and counter-attack begin to build up an endless amount of strategies emerge. Even within just one of the game's races there's a huge level of strategy and customization. Take the humans, for example. Do you bring only bow-wielding rangers to the fight, relying on their quick charge time despite their weak attacks? Do you invest in spearmen who have longer reach and can actually take out enemy units without hurting their own attack in the process? Or do you dive deeper, bringing in expensive elite units like knights or priests for added attack power or healing during the heat of battle? These are choices that'll make each player's experience unique to their play style, while also keeping things surprisingly balanced along the way.


 
Clash of Heroes is Might and Magic at heart, but this is an all-new take on the series.

 
 Clash of Heroes includes a wireless multiplayer mode for local battles, and once you really get the feel for how matches carry out you will -- like me -- be out to convert DS-owning buddies to pick the game up just so you can test your strategies. There's unfortunately no online mode included, but that doesn't mean you'll be short-handed as far as overall depth to the game. Might and Magic's campaign mode is no joke, spanning the game's five alignments -- Haven (human), Inferno (demon), Sylvan (elf), Academy (mage), and Necropolis (undead) -- and lasting well over 30 hours to complete the main quest, side quests, and puzzle battles. In fact, I've put in over 45 hours on the game spanning both single-player and multiplayer battles, and there's still secret units I haven't found, bounties I haven't completed, and puzzle battles left to conquer. The game is massive.

also since the Xbox One is coming out really soon, maybe they will finally release halo 3 as the second free game of October

Xbox Live's free 'Games with Gold' promo comes to Xbox One in 2014

Quote
Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion, in which Xbox Live Gold subscribers get access to free games each month as part of their membership, is coming to Xbox One, according to the company.

Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb says details on how Microsoft will implement Games with Gold on Xbox One are coming "later in 2014." On Xbox 360, Microsoft has been giving away two downloadable games each month to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Microsoft announced its Games with Gold promotion in June, promising free downloads of titles like Halo 3, Assassin's Creed 2, Fable 3 and more. In October, Microsoft said it would extend the promotion as an "ongoing benefit" for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Another reminded that the next free game is due to be free on the 16th.

Well I know there's a lot of other people who don't have Gears of War, they can't make everyone happy... They aren't gonna just choose games which none of you have, because than they wont be any good games on Arcade...

Also, if you have the game already and really enjoyed it, be happy as now you can play with others who never had it and the Multiplayer will have people in it now which could've been a struggle before.

what annoys me is that they already gave the game out for free to everyone who bought judgment, so many people who bought it also have a second already as well.

These games are quite good, a full retail game which came out in 2012 is better than 2006 for a change. :P Looking forward to playing Sleeping Dogs.

Dead Island is RUMORED to be the first game of February, please don't hold me to my word if the said rumor is wrong!

I heard about this, but seeing as the games are going to be announced today, I thought there'd be no point posting as we'll find if it's true or not later. :P I think Dead Island would be a good game to give away, it's not an old game which people have complained about, but nor is it new which is understandable because no developer wants to give everyone their newly game for free as they'll not get anything out of it.

I think it sounds a reasonable game for them to give out though, most shops sell it for £15-£20 and i think most people would buy rip-tide if they were going for this franchise as you don't need to play the first to enjoy the second, They said that the first half of this year they are quite confident GwG will please the community so i dunno, maybe they've upped from the petty arcade games and start dishing out games like Crackdown 2 or Oblivion

I already had Dead Island since it's launch but downloaded it anyway. I personally didn't mind the game. It wasn't great, and I'm not a huge fan of the mechanics behind movement, but I didn't mind it.

I played Toy Soldiers: Cold War and got bored of it in 15 minutes. I just don't enjoy those types of games. Cool concept though, just not my thing.

I wonder what the games will be for March. Hopefully they're good!  :)

Ontop of that, Information regarding the Xbox One Version of Games with Gold.

Quote from: IGN
n an interview with IGN during the Game Developers Conference last week in San Francisco, Microsoft Game Studios Vice President Phil Spencer acknowledged the importance of launching the Games With Gold program on Xbox One, saying that they're "trying to match what customers want" while also stating that "it might not look exactly the way things have looked in the past" on Xbox 360.

"The Games With Gold program on Xbox 360 has been successful for us," Spencer said. "It’s been part of the value people see in [Xbox Live] Gold, something we recognize that isn’t on Xbox One that isn’t there today. We haven’t announced a plan, but people should understand that we understand the expectation that people have around what the value on Xbox One Gold should be. It might not look exactly the way things have looked in the past, but the recognition that that form of content and that perk for being a Gold subscriber is important to people, something we definitely hear."

So does that mean it could potentially change to resemble Sony's model with PlayStation Plus, in which you get newer games but only have access to them for as long as you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber – rather than the current model that seems to favor older titles that you can keep permanently?

"The easiest way for me to answer it is to say from the time we initially announced this box, we’ve had feedback from people around how they would like multiple parts of the program to work," Spencer began. "I think we’ve tried to respond to the feedback that we’ve received. We can’t always do exactly what people want for many different reasons, but we try to be open in terms of what we’re thinking about. So feedback to Xbox 360’s Games With Gold is being heard as we think about any future plans we might announce. The feedback loop is definitely active and we want to make sure we’re trying to match what customers want."

i think i just entered the twilight zone, i was at a current date, then the thread magickly went back in time and now its back to the correct date XD

anywho, already own dead island, was a lto fo fun at first, then idk theres only so many times you can play it solo, i emagin ti woudl be a ton of fun with friends.

i didnt play with friends tho at the tiem becuse said friends wanted to just skip the quests since they already did them but i didnt and wanted to read them all ^_^.

my only major complaint about the game was in the 2nd city it started to get insanly diffaculty to make my way threw it, i ended up just running most of the tiem becuse if nto it would littrly take an horu of fighting to get to point a to poitn b, if i ran it took maybe 2 mins.

a minor issue i faced was i would out lv my weapons way to quickly. overall tho was a fun game, i just wish it would let us into the hotal more. i felt liek they coudl have made the hotel a real nice high lv place, with it eing so big and dark. it had a lot of potintal, but meh.

as to toy soilders cold war, its a tower def game, with the added coolness of being able to use the towers as an fps gun. and also could sometimes run around as a comando and also use tanks/airplans besides the tower defenses.

that said there were a cuple times it was rather difacult. but overal its fun.

So that's why the background and character art look so wonderful? I find it amazing how just one person or a couple of people developing team can make such a wonderful game eg: (Craig, Dean Dodrill)

Not really a big fan of Dust. I won't be beating it...

I've had Saints Row: The Third for quite some time now, but bought it used and didn't know that the game required an online pass (for co-op...) at the time, so I'm assuming downloading it will provide the pass, which is good. :)

Though I think I read somewhere like 6 months ago that they took away online passes and made everything free. It was too long ago to remember...

I'm just glad I'm actually getting a free game, new or old, good or bad, you're paying nothing for it so no one can complain of what game they're getting, be grateful for what you've been given, Microsoft could've gave nothing. :D

one year of great games like halo 3, assassin's creed 2, gears of war, and so many others. Only 3 I can think of I didn't like

I do believe 360 has Dark Souls for free right now. Which is actually quite brilliant because of the high amount of players playing DS 2. Also, it opens the game up for those not willing to buy DS and spend the money getting killed 500 times every hour. lol

So now they have new players to try it out, and POSSIBLY enjoy it. Therefore moving onto DS 2 and spending that hard earned mulah! :P I do love Dark Souls though, or rather Love/Hate. XD

EVERYONE QUICK! SELL YOUR HALO REACH BEFORE THE PRICE DROPS!
observing the trends, as one does.. i noticed that the value of the games on 'Games with Gold' actually raises slightly during & after the period the were given away free.. i assume it's because all the guys that don't have gold or missed the DL period then want it more than they did before they were even thinking about it..
I recommend keeping hold of it for now unless of course you're going to sell it to a business which is renting a property on the high street and paying staff to process the transactions and therefore need to cover their expenses by offering you low prices; Then it probably would be best to sell it now.



Thank you for posting the info again, Fergie.

I've got 2 copies of the game, Legendary Edition and Console (I needed a new console and I had already pre-ordered the Legendary Edition when I needed one) and one of them has a big "CAN'T BE SOLD" on the case, something along those lines and I don't really want to get rid of my copy I got with my legendary edition. Also if you still play Reach and you are selling it, just remember you'll be waiting till the 16th. :P

Thank you for posting the info again, Fergie.

As the game is only $8 (NEW) on Amazon.. might be worth buying it and saving the drive space. It drops to almost nothing once it's offered as the free game... they always do. Dishonored for example is $11.88 with free shipping. the game of the year edition.. which I purchased super cheap.. is only $3.56 more.

Volgarr looks like it basically stole Rastans notebook and Rastan was awesome. Maybe I'll actually turn my Xbone on next month to check it out, assuming I don't forget. Anyone remember Rastan? Just me? Ok  :!

I was always a huge fan of Rygar in the arcades. I got to where I could play through many many levels on a single quarter. I still love firing up the arcade game every once in a while for old time sake. One of my favs.. Never got much into Rastan I'm afraid. although it is among my collection of Roms.

Rygar was a great game. We never had an arcade machine anywhere near me, but I used to play it on Atari Lynx. Shockingly enough it was a great port. There's definitely a lack of new games about killing monsters with a giant yoyo of death

Someone pre-release testing it at e3 or something said that the controls were very hard to use, Like you had to press 3 different buttons just to change a weapon? I don't know, Can you change the controls like other games? and it's a pretty good game?

idk if you can change them, but I like them. Its so fun to move around the city that I barely fast travel even if something is on the other side of the map. And its a huge map. Gunplay is good, with there being 3 styles of weapons. Conventional weapons, energy weapons, and the wacky improvised weapons like the tnteddy, the dude, and many other awesome in the game. The main story is around 12 hours, the side missions can take much longer and that combined with the collectables and challenges makes a game that's full of content.

the only thing you may not like is the humor. Do you like games that try to be funny? And break the forth wall? I personally loved this games humor but to some people quotes like:

"This is the end" "for you maybe, I'll respawn right over there"

"my names isn't tangerine" "then what is your name?" "idk, it floats over my head in multiplayer but I can't see it"

"I earned the "I didn't die in a cut scene badge"

and other jokes that break the forth wall are annoying.

Figures The Witcher 2 is going to be the free 360 game, I just bought the digital copy a while back when it was on sale. The Witcher 2 isn't your normal hack/n/slash game, you have spells, and traps that you can use, and really need to use them, planning is crucial to playing this game, you'll die very fast if you just rush swinging your sword. Since it's free I'd suggest that you try it out, your only out of some storage space while you play it.

I agree with GK.
This game is fairly short, however, from the very beginning I was immersed in the story. The scenery is absolutely amazing; I loved some of the view points. If you have a few hours to kill, I suggest spending them on this game.

I have the Army of Two: Devil's Cartel, and in comparison to the first two games in the series, it was a let down. The game just doesn't feel right when I play it. It's enjoyable and has it's moments, but they messed up some key features from the first two that made the games great.

Terraria would be waaaaaaay more fun if 90% of the people didn't dupe or mod in all of their items. You can't spend a lot of time getting a good item such as vampire knives, without everyone assuming you got it from someone who duped it for you or modded it in.

I highly recommend the first two games over the third. Army of Two, and The 40th day were both fantastic games, that were an enjoyable experience to play overall. If you liked Devil's Cartel, you'll love the other two a lot more. I personally preferred The 40th day, tho. :P

They are both story driven FPS semi horror survival games.

Depending on the difficulty you play at of course.

I own Metro 2033, Metro Last Light and I picked up Metro 2033 Redux (remake of the original)

Highly recommend giving them ok, not sure what the 360 versions are like though I played these on PC

They're both excellent on 360. I bought both around the time Last Light was out for awhile. I do like 2033 more personally, just a better atmosphere of survival going on, as Last Light has taken place after 2033's very amazing events!

They're both based in Russia. They have authentic Russian accents, not cheesy mockeries. They're post-apocalyptic themed. They're utterly amazing.

Not bad getting Battlestations Pacific.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/69/Battlestations_Pacific.jpg)

I owned Battlestations Midway when it first came out. Quite an interesting take on RTS-style gaming.
In traditional RTS games, you control many units at one time to a specific target. In Battlestations Midway/Pacific, you individually control units (the submarine sinking battleships, battleships to shell the Japanese shoreline, Dauntless dive bombers to make strafe runs on ships, etc).

Quite a challenging game actually, because you have to constantly switch from one unit type to the other to make sure they "get the job done".



I believe Battlestations Pacific includes a Japanese story arc that, upon winning a campaign mission, will play out as if the Japanese were the ones to win in the Pacific theater.

I believe it's both up to Microsoft and the game's developers to allow then to be on this list. And since Rockstar's version of a "deal" is charging their overrated GTA V 100$ that comes with a 'Whaleshark Card' (Don't quote me on the name), which is usually 100$. So, I doubt GTA IV and/or GTA: San Andreas will be free.

So, this topic is almost a fossil, but deals with gold (NOT the bimonthly free games) are cool this week. Tropico 5 is going for 6 dollars. All the dlc is SUPER discounted. Tropico 4 and 3 are on sale, too. Get them both for like... 4 dollars. Maybe 5. A lot of dlc from 3 and 4 are cheap, too. I recommend 5, most definitely if just for multiplayer alone. I'll be getting the last DLCs for Tropico 5 tomorrow. I'll probably grab Tropico 4 and/or 3 as well as some dlc for them. Don't know yet. Might just save the money till next tuesday or buy some indie games. I've been avoiding buying indies recently, though. Makes me sad.
