You smell that? That’s the smell of Games with Gold.
It’s that time of month again folks — the time where Microsoft unveils its Games with Gold offering, and the internet also gets to try out its new pitchforks.
That being said here’s the full lineup for the month of August:
- WWE 2K16 (Xbox One) (Available August 16 – September 15)
- Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate (Xbox One) (Available August 1 – September 31)
- Spelunky (Xbox 360) (Available August 1 – September 31)
- Beyond Good and Evil HD (Xbox 360) (Available August 16 – September 15)
Note: Per usual, both of the Xbox 360 games are playable on Xbox One with backwards compatibility
In terms of Xbox One games being offered, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate breaks my rule of “never play games with Ultimate in the title,” while WWE 2K16 doesn’t tickle my toes because I don’t watch the WWE. No Goldust, no WWE. In regards to the Xbox 360 games on offer: Beyond Good and Evil HD is tempting, Spelunky on the other hand: no.
