    “Coming up in September, Xbox Live Gold members can look forward to three new free games”
    I only see two for the One and two for the 360 so which gets a third free?

    • ryan6292

      he didn’t say “three new free games for xbox 360″ or “three new games for xbox one”. it is 3 games in total, for people that have xbox live gold to have…

      • gamer04

        it should say ” three free new games for Gold Members who own and xbox one and a xbox 360.”

        • ryan6292

          why? 99% of us get what he said and aren’t idiots.

          • gamer04

            sure i understood too , but clarity is a good thing.

    • Professor Oak

      Crimson Dragon was Free last month

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Where did you learn to count? 1 new free game for the Xbox One and 2 new free games for the 360 equals 3 new free games for Xbox Live Gold members.

  • https://www.facebook.com/janko.haluska dolnodon

    Really dissappointing this month, Halo Reach usually $25? Maybe through M$ Marketplace. Here in Europe (SVK) you can get a digital copy for €6.5 through an e-shop.

    • CoD Master

      Free is much better that 6.5 eur. Just because you have it, it doesn’t mean is bad for everyone.

      • Jacob Giles

        Quit trolling everyone COD Master (which translates to 12 year old who doesn’t go outside). In case you haven’t noticed pretty much nobody cares what you think.

        • deadbox102

          I don’t think CoD means what you think it does. :)

        • CoD Master

          Well, I don’t care either of what you are thinking about me.

  • inknStills

    From a personal viewpoint, so please, negativity not worth your while. I have Reach digitally already, ODST or Halo Wars would be a nice edition to my Halo collection on the 360.
    More controversially though, what’s with having two games available on the One when you’re going to keep the same game for two months. It’s not like I forgot to download it, I just didn’t want to play it in the first place.

    • motrubl4u

      Totally agree

    • awsfedfaewsef

      I own *every* Halo game that has ever been released, regardless of platform. (I.E. Mobile/PC/Console.)

      I think the better game to have would be Halo Wars, as far as I am aware it was the lowest selling Halo game, but it was also crazy fun, would be nice to have the multiplayer reinvigorated with new blood.

      Still, this is free, so we don’t really have any place to complain. :P

      • inknStills

        I think the only Halo game I didn’t own was halo PC. I’ve been lucky enough to experience all the others. ODST is definitely one of my favourite campaigns and Wars I did own at some point., but must have sold more recently on a clearing spree. I’m not complaining I just think it will be nice to have the whole collection in digital format so I don’t have to mess around with discs. (personally, I think if you spend £40 – £50 on a game when it is released the digital copy should be included).

  • gamer04

    why are they repeating games every month, especially when the other one looks like an atari 2600 game. Anyone who has an xbox 360 already has halo reach honestly. So basically nothing this month. Please stop the repeats. It’s a good thing diablo 3 came out when it did.

    • CoD Master

      Nobody asked you, and they said that one month you will have 2 games and the next month the one will get replaced with a new one and so on… Read before you complain, kiddies.

      • motrubl4u

        And nobody asked you for your input either troll boy

        • CoD Master

          Yeah, nice logic you have there, the guys who are right are trolls. Good job.

          • gamer04

            my bad, i thought this was a comments section… i love my xbox 360 and xbox one, but giving feedback on what types of games you like shouldn’t be a bad thing.

          • CoD Master

            Oh its alright, but think other people too before you post a hate comment.

          • Reece Hunt

            How is it a hate comment?

          • CoD Master

            …..

          • Reece Hunt

            It’s valid feedback, so instead of trying to downgrade everyone’s opinion live with the fact that no company is perfect.

          • CoD Master

            No im not downgrading comments, im just fixing some comments which aren’t correct.

          • Reece Hunt

            Talk about egotistical. So in your mind anyone who has a different opinion to yours is automatically wrong.

          • CoD Master

            No this isn’t right.

    • Michael Burden

      Complains about repeats, then ironically praises (re-)release of Diablo 3? Facepalm!

      • gamer04

        sorry i must have missed it when reaper of souls was released previously on consoles?

    • Thomas Morris

      I think I missed Diabolo 3 (when did that one get on Games For Gold?)

  • Jacob Giles

    Really? Reach? Anyone who plays halo already has that game and most probably pre ordered it. Oh well its better than odst aka csi halo the weakest halo game ever.

    • CoD Master

      Hey! Don’t you like it? Here is the door for you!

      • Anubis316

        I agree that Halo players don’t have it, but sine the MCC(halo collection) is coming out for xbone I think this is a good game to give for free.

        • CoD Master

          Yep.

    • LysanderM

      Yeah, sadly. :)

      BTW why do some troll kind guys make this social pressure? Does anyone shows you the door when you like these old or unknown games?
      Someone likes these, and some others don’t, that’s just the way it is. That’s why “the commentary section” exist.

      And to be honest, the game is on ebay for years from £7~8. Surely almost all 360 owners would have this game. So, try to write down something reasonable @cod_master:disqus

      • CoD Master

        Still free is much much better than 7- 8 bucks.

  • Reece Hunt

    So what have we learned from xbox ones GWG, just wait a couple of months and one indie game will be free.

    • CoD Master

      Yes, is it bad for you?

      PS: Use ‘you’ not ‘we’, don’t speak for everyone.

      • Anubis316

        one? what are you talking about, if you wait a couple of months a total of 4 games would have been free. please make a point next time you make a comment

        • CoD Master

          What are you talking about???

  • Anubis316

    I was upset when they announced Max curse of brotherhood was going to be free, I was upset when they announced Guacamelee was free, BOTH of those games were much better than I expected. (Crimson dragon was as bad as I expected and I havn’t tried strike suit zero yet) The point I am trying to make is these games that don’t look that great can be hidden gems. I will give monaco a try and I think time force actually looks good. I am happy with this month’s my only problem is I don’t like how they are pretending to give us 2 free games a month for Xbone when one of them is from last month. I will not complain though because it is still like 1 free game a month, I just wish they wouldn’t call it 2 and fluff it up so.

    • CoD Master

      They AREN’T PRETENDING. They already said from the START that they WILL give 2 games in 1 month then the next 1 game gets replaced and so on… HOW MANY times you (EVERYONE) need that to be said in ORDER to UNDERSTAND that?!?!?!?!

      • Thomas Morris

        They never said 1 Game gets replaced… Unless I’ve seriously misunderstood something (and since they have been giving 2 Different games for over the last 4 months… I’m assuming you don’t know what you’re talking about)

        • CoD Master

          No they didn’t gave 2 different games those last 4 months and im talking about XBOX ONE GWG.

          • Thomas Morris

            Right you’re confused I get it when I said “They have been giving 2 different games” I was referring to the Xbox 360 (Not even counting the Xbox 1) Which they HAVE been giving 2 different games for the last 3 or 4 months. As far as you talking about “Xbox One” you yourself could be more precise as well.

          • CoD Master

            The 2 games for 360 was from the start the program started, but for Xbox One this the way is done. And okay I apologise for that.

    • Costas

      I liked Crimson Dragon. I ‘d like it even more if it run at 60 fps. Strikesuit zero was really bad. Most boring game I ‘ve played this year.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      They never said anything but “With your gold membership you will get at least 2 free games every month on the 360 and at least 1 free game on the Xbox One” I don’t think they are pretending anything. In fact it states in clear English above ” Crimson Dragon will continue to be available for Xbox Live Gold members as a free download for Xbox One”

      They are holding over a game so those that are coming into the Xbox One for the first time this month can still pick up 2 games for free. You know they have doubled their sales since they stopped making it mandatory to purchase the Kinect?

      • CoD Master

        And they will triple when on September 5th comes to all countries. :)

  • Mark Frank

    Crimson dragon was free in August ….

    • PANDA PUNISHER

      Yes, as stated above in the article.

  • ImTheMetalLord

    The games that are available on the 1st are free now. (Super Time Force and Monaco)

    • CoD Master

      I love Monaco so far! :)) They gave us a great gem that I would never purchase and still people complain.

  • Derek D

    I loved my 360, I think Major Nelson is an amazing PR front man, and Halo has one of the best storylines in ages…. but at the end of the day, I feel like Don Mattrik left some sort of curse on the Xbox Brand that the execs just can’t shake. Other then Larry and Phil, I really just wish the entire Xbox staff would get canned…(okay that’s harsh…. maybe relocated to a different part of Microsoft). The Xbox one has made every possible bad step even imaginable. Reusing a previous months game may not be the worst offense possible, but I can honestly say it doesn’t entice me to renew Gold anytime soon. I think it’s time for some new people running the Xbox brand.

    • CoD Master

      Hey mate, its so simple don’t you like your system services? Trade your consoles and say goodbye.

    • Some guy

      Give it a year or 2, it takes time to transform the xbox one into a xbox 180.
      By the end of 2015 we’ll get a good idea if xbox is dead or not.

    • Me

      You’re complaining about FREE games? Something which they don’t even have to be doing? Get off your high horse man and realise how whiny you’re being. If the only reason you have a Gold XBL membership is to get free games every month, you don’t deserve anything.

      • Some guy

        You pay 8$ for a month/40$ a year and get 2 games per month(that range between World of kefling and Dishonored).
        I fail to see how it’s free. Unless you consider paying for peer to peer online in 2014 as anything but a joke and that GWG is a bonus.

        • Me

          You’re sorely misinformed. You’re getting 24 games a year (48 if you have an Xbox One). Each game costs an average of about $15. That’s $360 ($720 with Xbox One) worth of games, all of which come as a bonus with an XBL Gold membership, which, as you said, costs a mere $40 a year. You’re essentially getting $320 (or $680) worth of free games. The sheer amount of free games we’ve received thus far (and will continue to receive) more than pay for the measily $40 cost of XBL. Besides XBL Gold is already established. If you want to complaint about having to pay for it, go back to 2004.

          All that being said, you still managed to find a way to complain about them extending 1 game’s free timeframe for another half-month period.

          Don’t even start complaining about having to pay for XBL. That’s a whole other can of worms (PS4 has PS+ so it isn’t just Microsoft).

          You expect too much free stuff to be served to you on a silver platter.

          • CoD Master

            Oh snap. :)

          • Harmeshver Singh

            I been having Xbox Live gold since GFG was announced, half of the games I couldn’t download due to it being region-locked, so yea…. don’t see how your numbers make sense to me

          • Me

            Half of the games? That’s still $160 (or $320) worth of free stuff. Even with just 3 games you’d be getting games worth more than a year’s worth of XBL Gold membership. My numbers make perfect sense.

            Also, you’re like “Some guy”. You only got XBL Gold because you wanted to get free games. The games are not aimed at cheapskate vultures like yourself scrounging around for deals or free stuff; the games are intended for those who regularly use an XBL Gold membership. It’s to reward them. Then there are people like you. *facepalm* Your complaints are akin to complaining that the song you illlegally downloaded wasn’t the one you wanted. You’re a freeloader.

          • Reece Hunt

            It’s not being a freeloader it’s being a normal person who uses common sense and not spend more money than they have to. If you’ve got the money to blow on outrageous prices e.g. Xbox one games, then go ahead but some of us are smart when spending out hard earned money.

          • Me

            What a ludicrously incoherent argument. You don’t have a legitimate retort so you spew that sophistry.

            Complaining about free games is not “being a normal person”, it’s being a whiny twat. The question was never about the cost of games, it’s about all you people complaining about the free games. You’re incompetent.

          • Jedi Dna

            pretty simple solution to that.
            Just transfer your live membership to your own region.
            X1 is lauching in lots of markets anyway.

          • Harmeshver Singh

            Xbox Live not available in my country. and X1 is not launching in lots of markets. Microsoft has been saying for years that the 360 will be launched in almost all markets and after 7+ years how many counties have xbox live officially?

          • Jedi Dna

            Well, sucks that the 360 where never launched in your contry. But its true that X1 IS launching in a lot of counties. By the end of the month it will be avaliable in almost 40. If yours is not one of those you are out of luck. But thats not a complete disaster… Just like yourself, I stayed a LONG time registered in other countries Xbox live, even after it launced in mine. GWG was the reason I did the account migration . US xbox live’s content is WAAAAY better, but I think THAT is reason for the region locking. I don’t know if you alredy doing it and Its a very long shot so I don’t know if it will work, but maybe you can try downloading from a non US xbox live (XBL from other contries have less reason to region lock the content since they don’t have the same number of “outsiders” than the US xbl).

          • Harmeshver Singh

            Yup not even in one of those 40 countries :I and yes my account is a US one.

            Honestly I have already moved to PS4 ( Officially supported in my country, and every game shop here who used to sell Xbox360 is not bringing in X1 due to the poor support that MS gave during the 360 run ). Still keeping my Xbox 360 as it has a good catalog of games I still not yet play and hopefully get more interesting GWG in the coming months :)

          • Some guy

            You’re forgetting the part where 90% of the games on GWG were on sale for 5$ a month or so before and anyone remotly interested in those game already bought them.
            That and saying the xbone has 2 different games each month on the page that say only super time force is new this month.
            So it’s 24 games you either bought for 5$ or don’t care about enough to buy with some rare surprises.
            So far I got like 5 games with GWG that I didn’t own/buy right before it went on sale and I liked none of them.

          • Jedi Dna

            Man, thats not true. But anyway, if you think you can get a better deal elsewhere you can just trade in your console.
            To me and to most of the Xbox community thats a pretty good deal.

          • Me

            90%? Completely false. A few – and I mean a few – arcade games were on sale a few months before they became free. That’s entirely irrelevant though. You’re still getting free games.

            Stipulating the fact that exceptionally, this month, Crimson Dragon is still free instead of having a new free game, and then generalizing it to inductively (yet fallaciously) reason that it isn’t exactly 24 games so far, is entirely ludicrous and arrogant. Rare surprises? Unlikely. We’ve had several retail games, as well as many quality arcade games. Either way, the numbers I originally presented are still correct and my argument remains irrefutable. Just because you keep bitching and moaning about not getting 2 AAA retail games being handed to you every month doesn’t mean we’re not extremely fortunate for this whole deal. If you don’t like it, go cry about it over a steam sale, you filthy parasite.

          • Reece Hunt

            Actually 90% is spot on

          • Me

            Entirely incorrect.

    • majorasshole

      Yeah they clearly need some new blood… Maybe some real gamers rather than someone who ran powerpoint… It seems like microsoft is content with just riding their wave of previous success and competitive failings. They’re not innovating and in the tech industry that’s death… just ask Blackberry (If anyone remembers who they were)

    • KrisXX

      grow up baby.

  • Harawanagangsta

    Hahaha, this CoD Master dude.

    • CoD Master

      Yeah, what about me gangsta?

  • Domy

    In my country we have Kameo instead of Monaco for X360. Is it better?

    • Some guy

      Great adventure game made by Rareware in 2005.
      So, I’d say it’s better but the game is like 2$ now.

      • Jedi Dna

        Its not 2$ in Brazil, I can assure you that!
        Here is more like 20$.

    • CoD Master

      No mate. It isn’t.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Depends. “Better” is so subjective if you ask me. Kameo is a very old game that was very popular when it came out but not something I ever had an inkling to play. Monaco I have played for about an hour and is interesting however not great and something I never had an inkling to play either.

      I rather like them giving away games that may introduce me to something new I may have skip over otherwise. Last month they gave us Battleblock Theater that I thought was an amazing platformer that I otherwise skipped over several times.

      • Domy

        After watching gameplays of both games, I’m with you… none of those two made me want to play them till the end. I’ll download for my girlfriend, who is learning to play. Kameo seems easy (and fun) enough for her.

      • Victor

        Hey buddy. Is NFS Rivals worth the 19$? I want to get a offer… Maybe NFS, Sniper Elite 3 or Watch Dogs?

        • ImTheMetalLord

          I never played NFS Rivals. Sniper Elite 3 and Watch Dogs are both great games that I bought full price when they first came out so at those prices I strongly recommend them. Better hurry, next weeks sales are starting to go up.

          • Victor

            Yeah. I think I’m going to get Sniper Elite 3. Watch Dogs is still expensive for me. Next week deals are: old Cod’s, transformers, prototype and few arcades… I’ll pass.

    • Jedi Dna

      Yes. Its WAAAAAY better!
      Kameo its a GREAT game.

  • Digiadam

    Wow…..I cannot believe how horrible Super Time Force is. It’s awful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Corey

    Lol, Halo Reach. I could probably trade in something broken for that game on Kijiji

    • Corey who?

      A ps4!

  • Lucas Sanches Cestari

    played super time force for 10 minutes… i had to uninstall, the game is too boring, i hope something better comes next month

    • CoD Master

      Pretty nice. :) Its seems we get an Activision Publisher sale and some arcade games for the Deals with Gold.

      • SABZILA

        and i think XBOX ONE gets Lococycle and Child of Light discounted.

        • CoD Master

          Is is a prediction or you know it?

          • SABZILA

            inside scoop ;)

          • CoD Master

            Ah don’t do that, because do you remember how it gone last time?

          • SABZILA

            yeah lol but im pretty sure this time.

          • CoD Master

            Okay, let’s see. By the way do you own CoD 2 and CoD 3?

          • SABZILA

            I dont own any. Have tried them occasionally. i prefer games with a good fps single player campaigns. Dont really go multiplayer on fps.

          • CoD Master

            But CoD 2 and CoD 3 are classics. :)

          • SABZILA

            Yes they were before greed took over.

          • CoD Master

            Would you try any of these?

          • SABZILA

            I have tried most of the COD’s. Early ones on PC.

          • CoD Master

            Okay, nice :) Will you buy anything from this sale?

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SABZILA

            Unfortunately not. I have the Resident Evils ones and the rest dont interest me or i have played them before. What about u?

          • CoD Master

            Im really waiting for L.A Noire to go on sale, I know it was 2 weeks ago, but I didn’t have the money for it. And I don’t think that I will purchase anything from this, because im waiting for the game.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SABZILA

            How about pick up the complete edition used then resell when done to save some money. I finished that game and enjoyed it.

          • CoD Master

            The complete edition is so expensive im my country mate. And no I don’t sell my games.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SABZILA

            I get some good deals on ebay but im in Australia. Digital is rarely worth it for me unless its a game i like and replay.

          • CoD Master

            I want it digital, because I love the game judging by the reviews.

          Lococycle was de-listed for the X1 so there is no chance of that.

      transformers WFC, re4, rer, P4A and prototype 1. now that’s a steal. the remaining on demand game offers especially warhammer, aliens and thief are just too expensive when compared with the price of their physical copy counterparts on amazon
