Major Nelson: For the month of October, Xbox Live Gold members will receive four new free games – two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360 – as part of the Games with Gold program.
I already own all of those games. Hopefully November might have something for me.
did they figure out a way to transfer TWD Xbox 360 saves to Xbox One? Because I refuse to start over on Xbox One, and I don't really feel like playing my 360 anymore.
Luke, use the cloud... Do or do not! There is no try!
@thecommentator... Not all 360 games support the cloud. I tried transferring my high scores of pinballFX2 to the x1 and it says "not transferable" or something to that effect. Oddly enough, i can transfer the settings though.
@TheCommentator so the 360 saves work for the xbox one version?
@blaze: Start over dammit and stop crying!
No they don't :/
Yes, you simply move your 360 save to the cloud and when you load up the game on the X1 it automatically picks it up right where you left off on the 360.
@hiawa23 thank you!
Looks like an odd month, not bad not superb but a bit odd. Just my opinion but I'm skipping out on this month. I might get the Walking Dead haven't played them heard they were fantastic.
I just finished TWD couple days ago. It took me a year or so - I started and quit several times. But then I started to play Tales from Borderlands, which I really liked and decided to give TWD a second chance on that wave. I must say, last series are much better, I really liked them.
Yeah it's TWD for me too, already have TGW on another platform, and it wasn't my cup of tea.
Best of luck to you, Nicholas Cage.
I don't have either of the X1 games. Stoked!
Valiant Hearts is welcome for me, I wanted to play it and haven't had it yet. The rest I've already owned and played, but oh well.
I just got TWD Season 1 for $6 and I got Valiant Hearts a while back for free... on PS4.
Did you download them or purchase them at retail? If at retail, see how much you can get for trade in our sell them on craigslist....
if you have them on disc, sell them at gamestop and get the digital versions from GwG
Sweet! Definitely recommend both Valiant Hearts and the walking dead, both are really great games. Another good offering from GWG, expect an AAA next month to launch the new GWG
What do you mean by 'new GWG'? Hopefully we get an AAA next month even though these 2 games are great anyway. Not sure why you're getting disagrees for recommending these games lol
“What do you mean by 'new GWG'?” Was about to ask him the same question. Lol. Maybe he is talking about the upcoming BC update which will make xbox 360 GWG titles playable on Xbox one starting Nov.
I think he is refering to GWG's new policy that they are going to have two new Xbox One games for GWG every month, vs. when they use to have just one new one and normally one from the previous month. They announced that they were changing this last month, so it is most likely this policy change that he is refering to.
Yeah, valiant hearts is a nice surprise of a title.
Definitely a great experience. Everyone should play through it imo.
@elarcadia They already started that... September was medal gear and that zombie game and this month October is twd and valiant hearts. The game changes every 15 days
Walking dead!! Great game!!
Two solid offerings for the month.
Shame i have these games but, they are both great games for the Xbox One so enjoy if you haven't played them.
I own most already but Valiant Hearts I had passed on so thats a nice pick up for me...hear really good things about it.
You're in for a treat.
oh its really good, i even shed a manly tear, totally worth it ;D
Can't argue with this. This is one of the better months for GWG. However I don't know why you get Walking Dead for 360 and XB1. Should of had Walking Dead XB1 and maybe Wolf Among Us for 360 then November Wolf Among Us on XB1 and Walking Dead on 360.
Got tomb raider for September. I forgive ms for October
whats there to forgive both these games are amazing
Forgive that they're selling games that are worthless (in shops, second hand etc.) because they've been out so long that anyone with the slightest interest has mostly played them. This is the usual tactic these days. Sorry MS but we can see through your cheapness.
At Atomjuicer ... wouldn't the same apply to Tomb Raider then as well? It's old too. Or are you expecting AAA games on GWG to also be recent games? That's not going to happen.
Walking dead was surprisingly excellent, its a must play.
Meh for me.
Sorry but I look at both Xbox One offerings as not even half a game. I only own an X1 so go easy on me people.
The Walking Dead is awesome! 10/10 would recommend downloading
TERRIBLE month. Two of the games are the same game, one of the games was already given away, and ALL FOUR were given out on PSN already.
Personally, it is a great month for me. I don't own either X1 games, so I'm excited to try them out. I'm sorry it is a bad month for you, but I definitely wouldn't call it terrible by any means. Just because you already have them on PSN doesn't mean we all do. Hopefully they will be able to get you something good next month!
Walking Dead season one is only free on PS3 and Not Ps4. By including both versions, both Xb1 and X360 gamers each can play it just like games like Tomb Raider and AC: Black Flag. This article has nothing pertaining to people having anything on PSN and is a Live Gold game article so your comment is irrelevant. And by claiming "ALL FOUR were given out on PSN already" it is either you lying or assumed The PS3 version of Walking Dead S1 is cross compatible or BC with the PS4; which is not the case. Edit @ Rippn below, "All 360 games going forward are playable on Xbox one, so Walking Dead is an overlap also" -the BC x360 games going forward don't start till November when BC launches as was already stated so it is not an overlap. Again, like the original poster, you are either lying or misinformed. SO much misinformation today. LOL
Many people have Plus AND Gold. Plus and Gold giving away the same stuff is no different than a service like Netflix and Hulu offering the same exact movies and tv shows. And BTW, I'm sure Sony and Microsoft get a discount if the game was already free on the other service.
Agreed, this is a bad month especially if you are on the Xbox One and real bad if you are also on PS+. We already got Ground Zeroes and all 360 games going forward are playable on Xbox One, so Walking Dead is an overlap also. Vandal Hearts is good if you don't already have it free on PS+.
I don't own either of these yet (which is sad, I always hear great things about both) so this is going to be a greta month for me. Thanks MS!
Looks like a Feels Month.
Do they inherit games PS4 has already released previously and vice versa? Except for the walking dead, both those games were out for the PS4 as free games. Kinda sucky for someone who has both systems and would like something new to play.
Poor guy, he has the worst luck in the world because he has both systems. Kids in 3rd world countries are feeling your pain.
I'm not liking this same game idea, they allready gave MGS away.
Valiant Hearts is not bad i enjoyed it, but it seems uninspired to give MGS when they just gave it on xbone. Also, giving the same game on xbone and 360 (TWD) is kind of in the same boat, it's like the antithesis of cross-buy. Certainly the games themselves aren't bad, but the recycling aspect definitely feels a little lazy. Whether the games were on PS+ or not shouldn't matter, but for multi-console owners i can see it being a bummer. If you haven't played TWD then i highly suggest you do, but TWD is so popular i'm sure many have played it. It'd be nice if they gave The Wolf Among Us instead, i honestly feel as though TWAU is the best game TT has ever made and it's underappretiated, granted i have yet to play TT's Borderlands. TWD was a very smart game to give for Halloween though. Fingers crossed we get Dying Light on PS+, doubtful, but one can hope can't they?
It's basically Microsoft's way of giving away the fewest amount of games as possible without actually removing GWG. I don't usually complain about GWG because, well, it's free. But this just feels really cheap from Microsoft.
Well that all sounds pretty terrible. Will try Walking Dead for the hell of it because I've never played that type of game before. But... Halo 5 comes out this month so lol.
sigh, double game giveaway including one already given on xbox one but hey the plus side for me is that is some easy 2000 gamerscore to earn.
Unfortunately I ready own all those. All good games though.
Another garbage month..time to cancel xblive.
Ye cause GWG is the only reason you pay for Xboxlive.
Good month but why do they have the walking dead on 360 and Xbox 1. Doesn't make really sense since You could play it BC.
They are trying to give away the least amount of games as possible. This is a very cheap move from Microsoft. We already had Metal Gear Solid V available for the 360, now they are giving away the Walking dead on both consoles.....i hardly see the point seeing as the 360 version will be BC. They should have given us a different 360 game.
One for xbox one players, and bc means people that upgrade this holiday can finish the game
I own everyone except for VH. I'll pick it up and give it a try...afterall its free.
Nice, I thought about getting TWD Season 1 again, and now its free, I will spend the money saved on GoT or Borderlands Telltale games when they release on disc.
Have all of those except VH. Might play TWD season 1 again.
Glad I didn't rekneww my gold. I'll wait until they offer better free games
Valient Hearts is a great game.
Meh, crappy games anyway.
Too bad I already own TWD season one on 360, PS Vita, PS3 and PS4 already.. No need to get it AGAIN! But good games non the less.
Xbox 360 gamers better consider themselves lucky. I wish Ground Zeroes could be offered for PS3 on PS+ so I could access the unlocks cuz no way am I buying that standalone demo
Have Walking Dead on 360 but never played it. Happy i can just grab the XB1 version for free now
Disappointing month after what we've been getting recently, at least theres no pool nation though.
