I was all excited about Microsoft’s Games With Gold program, wherein Xbox LIVE Gold members are rewarded with free games, but then kept forgetting to see what they were. One time I checked and it was an Xbox LIVE Arcade game I wasn’t even interested in for free, and then I checked again and it was Assassin’s Creed II, which I already have on disc. Sigh.
So in the interest of informing those of you out there who are easily distracted and forget to check things like this, here’s what you can expect to get for free in August:
August 1 – August 15: Crackdown
August 16 – August 31: Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
Now this is more like it — two games I haven’t played before and would maybe be interested in. I mean, I’ll totally download Dead Rising 2 and its DLC because who doesn’t like killing zombies with creative weaponry? And say what you will about Frank, but Chuck is more my type.
And I don’t know much about Crackdown except that it’s yet another open-world sandbox action game, but I suppose for free I’ll try nearly anything! Although to be honest, all these open-world games just mean more games I will never ever have time to finish…
