Microsoft has laid out the Games With Gold options for March 2016, and they aren’t going to set the world on fire, that’s for certain.
For the Xbox One, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments will be available for download the entire month. I’ve never played it, but I was shocked to see that this has such a high reception, hovering around the 75 to 80 percent range on most aggregate sites. I wonder how I’ve never even heard of it. Lords of the Fallen will also be available from the half-way point and be available deep into April as well.
And in regards to the Xbox 360, why not kick back and relax with the original Borderlands. I sunk many more hours into this game than I did its bigger, more bombastic sequel, and I would be much more enthusiastic to blast through this one again, just as long as my old team can get back together. It will be available for the second half of the month.
In the first half, Gas Powered Games’Supreme Commander 2 is one of the best examples of the RTS genre you’ll ever find on a console. Be sure to download this one before March 15 to see why.
So yeah, not going to set the world on fire with this list, but it just might set a great big flame down in your heart. An old favorite, a hidden-gem or two, and a guilty pleasure in Lords of the Fallen… nice choices.
