January’s Games with Gold

Earlier today, Major Nelson of Xbox announced the free games that will be available for Xbox Live Gold members.

Xbox One owners will get episode one of Dark Dreams Don’t Die (D4), and Xbox 360 owners will receive MX Vs. ATV Alive from January 1st until the 15th.  The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will be available for the remainder of the month.

These games are a part of Microsoft’s Games With Gold promotion for the month of January.  In order to download these games free of charge one must subscribe to Xbox Live Gold.

Swery65’s episodic adventure game, D4, was generally well-reviewed, however it did not find much success in the marketplace.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and MX Vs. ATV Alive both launched in 2011, however The Witcher 2 was met with superb reviews while MX Vs. ATV Alive was not.

My Opinion:

I am excited to finally play D4, however this is a pretty weak line-up for Games with Gold.  With inFAMOUS: First Light and The Swapper coming to PS Plus next month I think Sony once again takes the month for best free games.
