Microsoft’s Games With Gold program has never really been in the same class as Sony’s PSN Plus offerings, but things looked promising last month as Xbox Live Gold subscribers received twice as many free games as usual. We were all hoping to see this trend continue, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
This month Xbox One owners will have a second chance to pick up the somewhat broken Pool Nation FX, which bleeds over from last month’s freebies. It’s a sub-par pool game with unbalanced AI, unreliable online play, and achievements that seemingly unlock at random intervals; but hey, free is free, right?
Taking a page out of Sony’s book, it appears you can download the 2D tower defense/brawler hybrid Castlestorm: Definitive Edition on both Xbox consoles, rather than one or the other. Mafia II is also free on Xbox 360 until the 16th, when it’ll then be replaced by F1 2013; whose name already tells you just how old it is.
