Much like Club Nintendo and the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection, December’s choice of Microsoft freebies isn’t entirely exciting. All three console developers don’t want you playing free games this month. The want you dropping big bucks on the biggest games of the year!
With that, Games with Gold will offer free Worms Battlegrounds for Xbox One owners. I love the Worms series as much as the next guy, and I think it’s a lot of fun to play at a party. However, it’s not something that would tempt me into subscribing to Xbox Live for a year.
The same goes for the Xbox 360 games too. From Dec. 1st to 15th, gamers will be able to pick up The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief, a 60’s stylized caper adventure. From the second half of the month, they’ll be able to pick up EA’s attempted revival at the classic snowboarding series, SSX. I never got around to playing it, but it got pretty decent scores from critics before quickly being lost in the shuffle.
If I were to play any free game from any of these platforms, it would probably be that. I was into Cool Boarders and SSX back in the day, and it’s a shame we don’t have so many snowboarding game options anymore. Anything here up your alley?
