So for THREE ****ing months in a row, Xbox One owners get a ****** pool game - that was an indie arcade game AT LAUNCH, and then another indie/arcade game for the second game. Xbox 360 from the get-go has been getting great titles - Xbox One is getting pure shlock.

You could argue that the 360 games tend to be 3 years old, and the Xbox One has only been out for two years, fine. Then give us ONE title for Xbox One and two for the 360. Ryse and/or Titanfall are totally viable options. A great option for a second title would be an Xbox One port for 360 games (technically speaking it IS possible - it has a 360 processor), but Microsoft doesn't want to take sales away from the 360.

The only good titles to come out for Xbox One so far have been Rayman (borderline-arcade title) and Child of Light (indie title). Microsoft made a promise so let's hope they stand by it.

Well, they're free.. sure, it's somewhat disappointing, but since there was no Games With Gold when I first signed the XBL, I don't really mind it.

Yeah, but PS gets better games. Ground Zeroes was on sale the other month on Xbone, it's free this month for PS Plus members.

Oh, and Just Cause 2 was free for PS Plus... three years ago.

Honestly, both Gold and PS Plus are pretty ****** on the new consoles. Usually it's nothing but God damn indie games. This month we get what should have been a free demo.

On the current consoles I would agree.



As for the prices, console versions are usually pricey, so it's not surprising that other stores sell such games for less.

Did you all stop to consider that maybe, just maybe, that Pool game is just that awesome that it needs to be given away so many months in a row?

But I'm glad this popped up. Totally forgot about that Massive Chalice game, it's suppose to be like Fire Emblem, right? I'll check it out.

Well, I like to ***** about PS Plus, but at least Sony gives us a variety of indie games.

I'm hoping they'll give us at least one surprise GWG game at E3. Many expect Tomb Raider Definitive Edition..

Hopefully within a year they can start giving away X1 launch retail games like Ryse and Dead Rising 3.

So, one of the games this week on sale is a game called Zombie Driver, and it's only $3.75. Anyone know anything about it? The price is nice, but is it something worth playing at all?

Pretty good. Got the 360 ones already but good for those that don't and look forward to playing Black Flag on X1.

I bought a digital code of Black Flag for $4 awhile back. It's alright, but I think AssCreed has just lost its appeal to me. I barely played it.

Easily the Best AC game.. Probably because it practically ignores the whole Assassin/Templar BS.

It's too regular now for me to care as much as I did at the time of AC II & Brotherhood, but I definitely want to try out the pirate angle and sailing across the seas.

Of all the "free" next gen games so far this is probably the best one. But it makes sense since those Unity bundles made Black Flag dirt cheap for the Xbone.

Pretty God awful. It was launched in a terrible state. All versions were riddled with bugs, and some had serious frame rate issues. It was so bad that they had to give the DLC for free, and people who ordered the season pass got a good free game.

Even post-patches, it's considered mediocre by Assassin's Creed standards.

It's also probably the most devalued game I have ever seen. I've never seen a AAA game drop in value that fast. Even the Halo Collection didn't drop like that.
