Today Microsoft announced the Games with Gold line-up for February 2016, by way of Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb.
2 of the 4 look good the other 2 blah
played Styx when it was free on ps+, its an ok stealth game, not really my kind of games but its still decent.
I think it was a great game very different
Cannot expect blockbusters everytime, plus some games I do not have some of these, so happy regardless...
Hands of Fate is better than average. There is gun to be had. But as you get deeper into the levels it can get fusrating. Sacred 2 was a good game, but I haven't played Citadel, so I can't recommend it. Gears 2 had one of the best Gears campaigns. If you haven't played it you should. The online co-op is fun as well. That stealth game demo was too dull for me, but some may still have fun with it.
I'll give hand of fate a go. It's poor month, in my opinion - unless you haven't played Gears of War 2.
I agree its not that impressive. Hand Of Fate for me.
Hand of fate Styx Gears of War 2 Sacred Citidal Plus add Witcher 2 You guys are complaining damn. I see nothing but great solid fun games. I guess you can't make everyone happy.
It's not a great month, but considering I have a ginormous backlog I am totally okay with that.
Yep. I have yet to start Ori, SOMA and Transformers Devastation.
Yeah, my backlog of untouched games is about 30.
same. ive still got witcher 3 dlc. tomb raider dlc, alien isolation and only stratched the surface on cod zombies and forza 6 and ive gotta do all this whilst still getting my halo 5 and killer instinct fix. just isn't enough time lol
I was hoping for rocket league to be free as its suppose to release this month, oh well, I'm still working through a backlog on my Xbox and ps4 so it's ok for both to be lacking this month
That wasn't going to happen considering its success on PS4 and PC. PS+ isn't lacking, in my opinion. Helldivers is fantastic.
Rocket league should have been absolutely free, the whole reason that its so successful other than the fact that it's a great game is word of mouth, I have a bunch of friends that would have never even touched the game at normal price but gave it a shot because it was free on ps plus. On top of that the playstation players get to play the game with pc players so the player base is substantially greater. This should have been offered with gold so that the xbl community for this game would be big
Not up to the standard I've come to expect from GWG but I'll give hand of fate a go and will probably skip the others as I've already beaten Gears 2 multiple times
I already own styx, its a fun game but i couldnt beat it since the levels were huge.
I'll give this and Hand of Fate a try. I already own Gears 2 for buying GoW: Ultimate Edition but it's a very good game for anyone that doesn't have it. This month could've been better.
They just dont make games like Styx anymore. I found it really refreshing. In another time it'd be a PS2 title selling for 5 bucks in your local game store, plastered with stickers.
Don't make games like Styx anymore? I can think of a recent game that is a lot like Styx. It's called Styx. :)
^ Thanks, i'll check it out.
Still waiting for Black Ops BC. Would forfeit a month of GWG for it.
I have almost bought Styx multiple times now, so that alone makes me happy.
Me too, been eyeing it for quite some time and even put it in my Steam wishlist. So this is definitely win win for sure.
Not wow'd by the month for sure. Styx was one I passed on before but thought it was OK from the demo I tried. So being free makes it more palatable. I have Gears 2 already. Hand of Fate like Styx is one I wouldn't pay for but being free makes it OK. And Sacred Citadel...I have absolutely no thought on as I am not familiar with it at all.
Maybe L4D is next month I hope
That's handy! Been wanting to play gears 2. For some reason I didn't get the 360 versions from the remaster even though I played from as soon is it came out. Hopefully they'll add the rest leading up to gears 4. Styx master of shadows is also an incredible game. Highly recommend it. Really solid stealth game.
I would email/call Microsoft and inform them of this. I didn't get my codes for the Gears games until a couple of weeks ago.
Might just do that. I'm just wondering was playing it within the time period the only thing you had to do?? Because I played the full game then traded it in before the BC became available. Was I supposed to also put the disk in then or was playing it in the time period enough??
Yep. That's all you had to do. I only played it for a few days when it came out and never touched it again.
OK cool. I'll email MS and see what they can do! Thanks legion :)
Haha wow Nothing for me on ps plus or GwG I'm ok with it this month since it gives me a chance to finish other games
Agreed! Especially when you get 4 games instead of 2, it's hard to keep up.
Sacred Citadel looks like a fun co-op game to play but other than that...meh. Damn...L4D2... :(
Hand of fate is a nice pick, other than that it's pretty cheap on Microsoft's part in my opinion
I think it's cool that the console wars are easing. Microsoft letting Sony choose their Games with Gold for this month was a nice gesture. Very PS+ like, giving away $20 indie games instead of AAA titles.
Styx: Master of Shadows is a really nice one. Played it last year when it was one of the PsPlus games ..I think in July or August.
Poor month for all platforms. GWG and PSN+......thank god for backlogs.
Hell divers is a excellent game.
I'm not really into the arcade stuff, and honestly I haven't downloaded the PSN+ stuff for a while.
Sad to see this is sort of a down month for gwg none of these are in my gaming preferences besdies gears 2 but I already have that. the last few months have been really good oh well sometimes it hits and some are misses.
Everywhere I look doesn't really specify. will Gears 2 be available on XboxOne or only 360?
All 360 gwg are backwards compatible and available to x1 owners
You just have to go to the xbox website, go to games with gold and purchase it for free then it will show up in your ready to install list on xbx1
Most kids don't appreciate free games these days. I keep reminding my nefhews to download them, but they don't care. They won't even give them a try.
well technically you are paying for any games you get with Gold or PS+. Cancel your subscriptions and see if you can keep playing these games. Basically you are renting them long term.
In PS+ case, sure.
You get to keep all your 360 games even if your subscription lapses.
@Team_Litt - what about XB1 games?
3 games I haven't played so will pick them up
Gears 2 is the only 1 of these worthy of my hardrive.
Not a bad update. I bet Cyanide Studios is loving that double check from Sony and Microsoft.
maybe disappointing is more the word . forsake a big title for the masses , your caked
