Title: Microsoft XBox 360/One 'Games With Gold' Discussion Thread
Post by: GrayGhost81 on September 29, 2013, 12:41:32 PM
I figured I'd put up a companion thread to my PS+ thread.

For those who don't know Microsoft has been making two games available for free each month to Gold subscribers. The games so far have been Fable III, Defense Grid: The Awakening, Assassin's Creed II, Crackdown, Dead Rising 2 (with Case Zero DLC), and Magic The Gathering 2013.

The current freebie is Rainbow Six: Vegas and on Oct 1 it will be Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes.

Microsoft has a very long way to go match the value of Playstation Plus. Dead Rising 2 was definitely a step in the right direction, but Rainbow Six: Vegas (originally released in 2006) was a huge step backward. Trust me, I may be a cheerleader for Sony sometimes but better free games is a good thing for everyone. I want to see Microsoft improve this program.

Anyway I'll post the new releases as they come just like I do in the PS+ thread, so check back on the first and fifteenth each month.

I'll agree that the free games have been pretty lackluster so far, and honestly I haven't played any of them, even though I have downloaded them. The only ones that I liked I had already played.

For those that are newer to they system though, there have been a few worthwhile titles in there. Crackdown is still great even after all this time.

I went and bought two used copies of Rainbow Six: Vegas. I refuse to download full copies of retail games.

Crackdown is still one of my favorite 360 games.

Post by: Izret101 on September 30, 2013, 05:56:27 PM
Halo 3 is Oct 16

BOY OH BOY HOW GENEROUS OF THEM!

Something i did see noted in comments was that the download version sufferes from horrendous load times and was never patched to fix it.
I wouldn't know since there are like 150 million copies of the game floating around i don't see the need to download it.


Title: Re: Microsoft XBox 360 'Games With Gold' Discussion Thread

As Izret mentioned, today's freebie is Halo 3. It's an okay game if you missed it when it was released in 2007.

Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on October 16, 2013, 03:07:48 PM
To confirm, the game was never optimized for hard drive install, since that came about after its release. As a result, instead of paying fees to patch it (and hence modify a risky portion of the game), they told users not to install to HDD. Doesn't help when Microsoft releases it as a GoD title.

Games with Gold is supposed to be carrying over to the Xbox One.
Which is shocking since One is not supposed to be backwards compatible....

Iron Brigade is now available for the next couple weeks:

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light will be free today. This is the first one I've been legit excited about because of all the positive press it got when it came out in 2010. Sounds like something I can play with Mrs. Grayghost. My gold account is actually going to expire soon and I think I'm going to let it as I generally don't play games online anymore.

Ah well, still cool that Microsoft is finally tossing us something other than 5+ year old games

Post by: GrayGhost81 on February 14, 2014, 03:24:52 PM
On Sunday 02/16, Toy Soldiers: Cold War will be made available. On another note, I had to renew my gold subscription because I forgot the bastards have Netflix behind a pay wall and my 360 is the only Netflix-enabled device in this particular room. First world problems. At least I'll have an interest in continuing to curate this thread, with Izret's help of course ;).

Looks like the first game for March will be Civilization: Revolution. Yep, it's old but if you missed it the first time around I highly recommend it. Basically a reskinned version of the first Civ from way back when. I wasted entire weekends on this game. Very addictive.

https://twitter.com/worthplaying/status/439113891776196608

Can't find any info on the second game for the month. Izret, have you seen anything? Perhaps Quake 4?

Post by: Izret101 on February 28, 2014, 11:29:23 AM
I have not heard anything definite yet.

Civ:Rev i don't own so i'll likely queue it up and never actually download it like all the other games on demand stuff.

Hey maybe things will start getting better:

Quote
"When Microsoft first revealed Games with Gold, which would provide Xbox Live Gold subscribers 2 free titles each month, users cheered it as a long-awaited answer to Sony’s PlayStation Plus program.  However, as the free games were announced and released, many criticized Games with Gold’s offerings as being too old or not up to par with what Sony was giving users.  While PlayStation Plus members often receive new titles shortly after release, including some AAA releases, Xbox Live Gold subscribers are disappointed with what is perceived as bottom of the barrel offerings in comparison.  Since most Games with Gold selections tend to be older, many users have already purchased said titles or possessed no interest in the first place.  Up until this point, Microsoft has offered little to ease the disappointment.

However, during the Q&A portion after his SXSW Gaming panel, Microsoft Game Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer addressed many of these concerns.  He emphasized that while the two programs have obvious similarities, there is one key difference: Xbox Live Gold users get to keep their downloaded title, while PlayStation Plus subscribers lose their games if their subscription lapses.  Spencer claimed that the “business around Games with Gold, for us, is just fundamentally different from some of the other programs that are out there, which does put a different financial picture on,” and because the games are a permanent part of a user’s collection, there are different financial restrictions that dictate what can be offered.  Even with this reasoning, Spencer admitted that the program could improve and he has already taken steps, including monthly meetings with the team responsible for the program, to make it “something that feels, at least, more true to what [he] thinks Games with Gold should look like with the constraints that are there.”

That game has been on sale a ton. Has unobtainable achievements(which is why i never bought it) and is supposed to be hard and looks rather unfun.

NEW INFO!

I had mentioned before that you do not need a gold sub to play these games once you have them downloaded.

Upon renewing my gold i noticed a little line at the end.
Apparently the Xbox One games do require an active gold sub to use for free after download. What a bunch of dick bags.

Guacamelee is one of those games that everyone knows is supposed to be great but I haven't found a lot of people who have played it.  It is FANTASTIC.  I played through the entire Gold edition on Steam.  When I found out it was coming out on Xbox One I really wanted to play it again but I don't love buying games twice.  Now that it's free, I'm thrilled I get to play it again.  The reviews I've read say that it't not just a coat of paint, the game has been tweaked in many areas.  I really can't wait to get home and play this again.

Also, BATTLEBLOCK THEATER!  Only reason I haven't picked it up yet is because I was waiting for a price drop and I wanted to find a coop buddy,  Price drop, check.  Coop buddy, I'm pretty sure I can convince Duke to DL a free game and play it with me, especially a platformer.

360 is getting
Dishonored - has DLC with achievements. There is a GOTY with all available DLC
Motocross Madness - Has DLC with achievements.

Xbox 1 is getting:
Crimson Dragon
Strike Suit Zero


DLC might end up going on sale but i think Dishonored and DLC were both on sale last month. Maybe even this month.

Thank you for keeping us all up to date with those, Izret. I was also able to download the other free One title on the site as well as the Crimson Dragon. It seems only the 360 games are divided within the month. The One games seem to both be available for the entire month.

I will have a backlog too. Once I do buy a One, it will probably have around 20 games on it to play. Makes it easier to justify paying for one eventually and not having to worry about dumping another 100 bucks on a few games to go with it at time of purchase.

I suppose I'd get more out of our One if we didn't get as much out of the PS4, or even the Wii U for that matter.  Aside from Peggle 2 and a little bit of Titanfall, everything else we'd want to play on the One, we play on PS4.

Well according to the Xbox newsletter that i recently got the average 360 owner earned 2x as much GS as the average One owner.

So it seems the One is winning the war of not being a gaming platform on all fronts.
YAY ALL IN ONE MEDIA CENTER!

I'll get a system when the harddrives are larger, the bugs have been worked out and the primary focus of every MS isn't about a new movie/tv app or restoring features that they removed from the 360.

I've certainly enjoyed my XBO so far, but it's seen as much play as the 360 this year. That will change in the fall, but so far this new console gen has been pretty blah.

The first year the 360 was out I owned about 3 games: Burnout Revenge, Dead Rising, and Gears of War or Rainbow Six Vegas, can't remember.  The first year the Xbox One is out, I will have purchased about 3 games for it: ACIV, Forza, and Far Cry 4 (maybe NHL 15).  It's the first year.  It's gonna be OK.  People are losing their minds over the first mile of a marathon.

Oh also worth noting!
By downloading and playing the Games with Gold stuff you do get  MS space bucks points eventually deposited into your account.

I believe it was 1000 points for playing 10 hours of the game over 2 weeks. Another 2000 points(i believe in addition to whatever points you would already receive) if the game has DLC and you buy it within the 2 weeks of the GwG becoming available.

It's essentially Rocket Riot, except with basketballs, and it has "live" social integration with it. If you stream it on Twitch, or people tweet to your account, they can send messages that will affect your gameplay, like turning the ball into a bomb, flipping the screen, changing the physics, BLUE SCREENING the game (fake), and other effects.

Reviews from random users so far have been overwhelmingly positive.

The ability to create stages/characters/banners/music has lead to some really cool stuff. 8bit Marios to PS1 era Sony emblems to a Swastika over a rainbow PRIDE banner with dicks (that last one will likely get the creator in trouble. It breaks a whole bunch of rules) All of it can be shared with QR codes.

My first thoughts on it was Rocket Riot Rugby stages as well.
But it is quite different.

Rocket Riot you control one guy against a team
The levels are destructible
The enemies are killable
It is more about moving from point A to point B than it is about actually scoring
There are no rules
It was not fun.

What they have in common
8Bit sprites

Pool Nation was decent on 360 One version hopefully improves.

Child of Light was great on 360 (glitched story related achievements forcing a replay almost ruined it for me personally) Looking forward to stacking.

GoW:J i am in the minority on. I really liked it. Seems like most big Gears fans did not. (Same thing goes for RE: Operation Racoon City) Unfortunately it doesn't seem to get the same support as far as Special Events are concerned. Hopefully the GwG spurs them to make them more regular.

Terraria was pretty cool. Already own it on the 360 though.

AC is a series that i have only played online. I've only heard good things but the online portion of it killed my interest. One day i'll give it a fair shot.

Army of Two i am looking forward to also.

Maybe it's just my account having issues, but be careful of Black Flag.  It's not a bad game...it's actually a great game.  But the darn thing locked up on me the other night and I have not been able to get it to load under my profile on my 360.  It hangs at the title screen, system lock down and all.  The second disc works fine.  Already spent over 8 hours with XBOX support (twitter and on phone) trying to figure out what the heck is going on and how it can be fixed.  Everything has been done and went so far as to remove all files off my 360...as if I just bought the system.  The game still refuses to play after downloading my profile from XBOX.  Those planning on downloading AC IV do yourself a favor...back up your profile to a thumb drive or something.  I don't want to see anyone else go through what I'm going through.  I just thought I would pass it along to fellow gamers.  I was really enjoying that game, too, and maybe it can be fixed soon so I can play it again.  And I'm using a disc version from Wal-Mart...only a few days old.  New.

Try your very best to resist the urge to play AC3.  It is the worst AC game by a mile.  I would have to agree.  AC2 showed what the game could be and Vrotherhood took it to another level.  Brotherhood is def the best of the Ezio games.

I liked Army of Two DC. It's one of those games that you play through in a weekend and while you enjoy your time with it it's quickly forgettable.

@Tynstar: I agree with Bill. AC3 is terrible compared to the other games in the series. The payoff for completing the game is terrible compared to all that it asks you to do. The last mission bugged on me five times before I was able to finish it.

PvZ has been available for next to nothing and has a disc based version that could have been had for cheap ages ago.
AC was in a system bundle that i'd estimate a bazillion people picked up.

I would have liked to see something more obscure and/or something that has never been on sale for both systems. Not games that sold millions and millions of copies.

Now that a Backwards Compatible menu has been added to the Xbox One Store dashboard and all GwG games are required to be backwards compatible, that's the easiest spot to grab them on the One.

Hardline and Battlefield 4 (i think it was)have had a few DLCs get 100% price cuts for a limited time of the last month or 2. Guess the games sold really poorly?

Orochi 3 Ultimate has 3 stackable versions if anyone's interested - Hong Kong, Japan, and non-China. Chinese version requires a Chinese Xbox.

^Yea i forgot about that until i saw Ryan started them all. I'll have to get them into my download history since i think HK/TW doesn't autodownload to the same storage device. I know it won't for neverwinter anyways.

Also
BF4: China Rising is free

EDIT
Link will misdirect to your local Xbox.com. Scroll to the bottom and change the shell to Japan and Taiwan to redirect to proper page and download the stacks for free. If you have one version already installed to the HDD it will not install the stacks or show them in your download history. I haven't stacked any One games yet so i'm not sure if uninstalling one version allows others to populate automatically.

Can I just say...WWE 2K16 is really good. I hadn't played one since WWE 13 for the 360, but this one really is good. I did a Live Stream of it earlier tonight, and it went really well. (See Below). But seriously, do yourselves a favor: If you like wrestling, download it. It's free, as Izret stated above.

I've heard good things about Vermintide, but probably wouldn't have bought it on my own.

The Telltale Borderlands game looks pretty good... the Back To The Future one didn't grab me back in the day.

I'm actually most excited about Child Of Eden this month. I don't even know what Marlow Briggs is.
