Games with gold

Time to get green, with more games that are supposedly free provided that you drop some coins on a monthly or annual subscription service! You’ve already seen what PlayStation has in store for the June edition of PlayStation Plus. Now it’s the turn of Xbox to show off a few free games. And just like the PS Plus offerings, they’re pretty much alright. Not great, but alright.

Xbox One owners get the following games to add to their libraries according to the Xbox Wire:

Massive Chalice

From fan-favourite developer Double Fine Productions. An early Kickstarter success, Massive Chalice is a tactical strategy game set in an epic fantasy world. You step into the shoes of the Immortal Ruler, and your goal is to defeat a mysterious enemy known as the Cadence, in a war that will apparently last 300 years. Yes, that’s a pretty freakin’ long time, but you’ve got plenty of troops to command, marriages to forge, and bloodlines to uphold. An immortal’s gotta keep their multi-generation war machine fit and fresh, after all!

Pool FX

Work the shaft of the cue and smack some balls together using only the tip. – Darryn Bonthuys, before he was fired from his job in overt games PR.

And Xbox 360 owners get the better end of the deal, with Just Cause 2 and Thief. Thief may have been a critical disappointment, but at least it’s a free critical disappointment next month. Ain’t nothing wrong about that. And when it comes to Just Cause 2, I’ve only got one question for you: EXPLOSIONS? It’s an alright selection then this month, with last-gen getting some proper love. Now if July could have a bigger game or two on the list, that’d be quite rad indeed. I wouldn’t mind a free version of Dead Rising 3, ya know.

  1. The games for the 360 are definitely better… Just Cause 2 is awesome fun.

    Hasn’t Pool FX been on the list for the last 2 months? Making it 3 in a row… Are they even trying anymore on the XB1?

    360 games are a good selection. Just Cause 2 for some fun-times action!

    Massive Chalice? I had to Google it and apparently it’s a brand new release? The gameplay videos though look rather interesting so I’ll give it a go I guess! ????

      Yeah – it also has me intrigued. A 300 year war? Hmmm… Will definitely give it a go.

          Lol! 🙂 Probably will be too… Wonder if it’ll be a staggered rollout or will be launched all over at once?

    Massive Chalice looks like a budget medieval Xcom type game. Could be fun?

    ugh!! get rid of the pool game FFS!!! I already finished ground zeroes on my ps4 but there is absolutely nothing that gives me a “YAY” out of Games with Gold except for Rayman Legends (been desperately wanting to play that so was glad it came for free) Was expecting more since it will be E3 month 🙁

    Pretty crap for an E3 month. You would have thought they would build up some goodwill going into E3 but maybe they’re saving it for after?

    And Sony deals another blow to MS. Games with gold just cannot compare. Which is sad. Until MS ups its game, Sony will not have to work for these wins.
