"Well the announcement is a little early but if you’re wondering what games will grace Games with Gold with their presence in May 2018 we have your answer."
Not bad. I've played both the AAA titles and baseball isn't my thing so I guess Streets of Rage will get the download. Edit: Is it me or does GwG almost always leave the "better games" for the second half of month?
Good month. I didn't really warm to MGS at all though tbh. Vanquish I've been wanting to try for a while
vanquish is legit but short like 4-5 hours
You'll love Vanquish. I got it and Fallout: New Vegas at a midnight launch for both in 2010. Hoping for a sequel someday.
I don’t know, calling Streets of Rage an Xbox 360 game feels like a bit of a let down. It’s a Sega Megadrive early 90s game - great for the time though.
I love Baseball games when they're unrealistic. Can't stand the sport as a whole though.
dude you are lucky your getting it on the release date
MGS and Vanquish this is definitely a great month for Games with Gold
Very good month.
Wow. This is a rather good month. I own both mgsv and vanquish on PlayStation platforms and those two are the highlights. Definitely check them out if you guys have yet to play them!
Does the fact metal Gear was part of game Pass for so long detract from the offering of it on GWG for anybody else?
For some maybe. But games can always leave games pass at anytime and u won't be able to redownload
Yeah cos if u have pass ur most likely to have gold so no point really.
I clicked on this garbage ad-ridden site, so you don't have to: On the Xbox One, Super Mega Baseball 2 will debut on Games with Gold and the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will also be available. On the Xbox 360 and backwards compatible with Xbox One both Vanquish and Streets of Rage will be free
meh... alright month....
MGSV & Vanquish are awesome
Well for hybrid people with PS4/X1, then MGSV was on plus like half a year ago so no need for that.
Vanquish was on + for PS3 many years ago. Both are great games though. I've been meaning to go back and replay Vanquish for the longest time. Just always end up finding something new to play or digging into a game hardcore until the next game on my radar releases.
Not everyone owns every console 🤨
Agreed but it seems those who don't are the most vocal about anything related to the console they don't own.
Vanquish was a plus title on ps3 the year ps4 came out I believe. I know I have it on my account because of plus. Great game that deserves to get played. Mgsv I own and got on plus. I can't remember exactly what games but I think every single Sega vintage title was also given on plus too. Can't remember exactly because I had Sonics ultimate Genesis collection too so I didn't care about vintage games on psn lol. Streets of rage was great as a kid. It's hard to play now though. The 3rd is so good though
I have both consoles but I don't pay for both their subscriptions. That would be wasteful.
Vanquish is amazing! Be nice to see it get enhanced via the 1x
I'd love to see vanquish and bayonetta enhanced for the x that would be great
Hum...maybe a little bit more and we can get MGR too, i have the disk, but I'm switching everything to digital now. My entertainment system look so much more organized and clean.
Anytime vanquish is played is a plus!
Nice! MGSV is been on my list of must-play games for years now
Can't wait for that Super Mega Baseball 2... I really enjoyed the first title and the second one looks like it improved a lot over the original.
Good month. I sold MGS before I had completed it as it was quite repetitive. Having said that, now I have had well over a year away, I wouldn't mind picking it up and completing it.
I had it for 360 but I'm keen to start another playthrough on XB1, I recall liking Vanquish at the time as well so it'll be cool to see how it holds up after so many years.
I’ve never heard of anyone having it for the 360! I know it’s on that platform, just not anyone getting it for it. I own it on ps3 by the way.
Really great month. Nice.
I'm surprised, Super Mega Baseball 2 is not even out yet and its release date is the same day as it's debut on Games with Gold
Definitely Vanquish and Streets Of Rage Collection.
I had the streets of rage collection on Xbox 360 and loved it, brings back the megadrive memorys. I think to this day streets of rave still has some of the best techno tunes to be put on a game especially when you turn that surround sound up, so yeah I'm happy. I have been calling for a developer for a long time to take streets of rage off sega, the game deserves new games and the franchise deserves to live on.. The metal gear game I haven't played yet so another download for me. Vanquish is a game I don't think I ever did finish, so that's a good deal for me but I do think it's a strategy by Microsoft to get people pumped for vanquish 2 since a deal was struck to get sega to develop V2. I must say all in all I mite just even have to give the baseball a download and that this month is very good for games with gold..
@solidgear3 dont know if you know but sega signed the deal some months ago to develop vanquish 2 so your dream of a sequel is already in the works.
@VenumUk- If I'm not mistaken the very first streets of rage was on the mastersystem and it was streets of rage 2 and 3 that came out on the mega drive and then they came out with the collection of all 3 for mega drive..
My copy of MGS5 was stolen last month & looking at May's Games With Gold I'll the money that I would have spent on another copy will instead cover taxes on a portable headphone amplifier / DAC that I've been wanting to get for a couple years.
Nice line up got metal gear free with ps+ not that I’d alresdy bought it, who doesn’t own streets of rage and vanquish is cool but yeah nailed that years ago. As for baseball orginally worth or currently still worth more than all the other games? Yeah no chance. It’s worth about £5/10 max.
That baseball game is releasing on 1st May so its worth $29.99
Just because it’s not out yet doesn’t mean it’ll still be worth that. 3-4 weeks will it still be $29.99 for what looks like an arcadey baseball game. Nah prob worth more like €9.99/$14.99 like an old XBLA title
Damn, I just bought Phantom Pain during thier Spring sale too. Now Vanquish I've been wanting to play again for ages, such a great game. I love the slide mechanics, so over the top.
Great Lineup. I've played most of these games. Vanquish is best played on the PC though because of the 4K resolution and better framerates.
