    I am starting to lose faith in MS. I have been defending them for almost a year from idiotic, untrue attacks, but there are just too many valid lines of attack that MS is giving the Sony trolls to keep me motivated.

    Both are good games, toy soldiers is a good tower defence but not as hard as the first game and co op makes it a lot easyer

    I can honestly say the only GWG that I haven’t liked so far was Shoot Many Robots. Everything else was fun to play for me. Everyone always complains because A) The game is old, B)They already have the game or c) They’ve never heard of it so they assume it sucks. The games may be older but they all have received good reviews and most likely it’s older games because the companies realize they are no longer gaining sales from the game. If you already have the game too bad so sad I’m sure people who have PS+ also have the same problem sometimes, get over it. And every single one of these game that are lesser know turned out to be fun and had good reviews. Does it really matter how old a game is if you’ve never played it and it doesn’t suck?

    I’d been holding out on picking up Dead Island forever. I was interested in it but there was always something else that took priority when I was looking for new games to play. Sweet.

      I have to agree with Dead Island, now I’ll be finally able to play it. Toy Soldiers Cold War is a pity for me, have bought it last year, but am looking forward to playing it again; is a good game.

    Meh, why not. I’ll be downloading Dead Island Feb 1st, my Gold will expire on Feb 2nd. No reason for me to renew (after 7-ish years), since 360 Xbox Live will eventually be faded out “soon” anyway. Oh well, bye Gold!

        That’s what I was thinking. This isn’t 2005. The Xbox One will gain widespread adoption in time, but it isn’t that much of a leap from the Xbox 360.

        Well there is practically no connectivity between a 360 Live user and an Xbox One user. It’s like living in two separate worlds within the same service. So it’s only a matter of time before Microsoft sees little-to-no value in keeping it on for 360 users.

        I don’t see myself purchasing a Xbox One in the next 12 months (or a PS4 for what it’s worth), so my circle of friends is getting smaller as time moves forward because they are “upgrading” and I am not. My comment stands, I won’t be renewing it, but I’m glad at least I get a handful of [bargain-bin] games for free before parting ways.

    Did they eventually patch the Xbox version of Dead island to not be quite so buggy? I remember the first time I played it I managed to get myself under the gameworld. Fun fact, never happened once on the whole 10 months I spent working on another game in QA despite it being one of the most common sorts of bugs.

        ok maybe they weren’t that bad but it was like a bait and switch type of thing. i bought them day one when they came out thinking they would be really good but they were just ok and very short. not much replay value either. if they had been $10 it would have been totally ok but $20 made me a little ill after everything was said and done.

        and for those that don’t know, this is just the NEW games coming in psn+, there are games from months ago there too if they are just getting a ps3/ps4. like xcom enemy unknown and I think uncharted 3 is still there.

    I like GwG is not a rental service, as I my availability for playing varies between weeks/months. and can understand the finances behind subscription/game for free value. my only proposal would be to introduce some participation in game selection, like voting which games under $15-20 should be given for free next month…

    Also still nothing on Xbox One? 😦 Any news about when you guys will start with Xbox one offers? I understand that there is not enough games yet, but MAYBE it’s time to fix it and bring some games to Xbox one. Then you can start give some away also. I have Xbox one and last month and two it’s really really boring to own it – NO GAMES! Everything normal like Ryse, Forza, NFS, FIFA14 is already done! You promised bring every month new games, so that there will be no empty hole. But december and january both is empty. First game to play is coming end of february – plants vs zombies.
    XBOX ONE = BIG EMPRY BOX SITTING IN CORNER AND WAITING GAMES GAMES GAMES!

In a few years I could buy the games on disc for a few pounds ( CEX , I bought 4 games I never got around to buying for £9 total ) .

        They said they’d have some “non-gimmicky” ways of using kinect for Banjo. It’d be controller, but with Kinect integration. So i’unno, some of the mini games kinect only? Or voice activated moves? Just because most of the original team have left, doesn’t mean they can’t make a good game.
