If you are an Xbox Live subscriber, then prepare yourself for a busy January, because Games with Gold is going to rock with its selection of free games.
Xbox One owners will have free access to 2014’s weird cult-hit D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die. This martial arts/mystery adventure has scored all kinds of praise for its off-the-wall style and unique usage of the Kinect. Much like director Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro’s previous game, Deadly Premonition, you’ll really have to bend your mind and expectations of “what makes a good game” to properly enjoy it. If you can, more power to you.
As for the Xbox 360, the first half of the month will give you MX vs. ATV Alive. I’ve never really been a fan of ATV games, so I can’t really say much about it.
The second half of the month though will deliver CD Projekt Red’s critical smash-hit, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. This massive and very accessible RPG should be able to hold you over for a while and prepare you for its highly anticipated sequel, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which releases on May 19th.
Nice choice of games for the month of January. Any takers?
