360 gets Motocross Madness until the 15th, then Dishonored

Xbox One gets Crimson Dragon and Strike Suit Zero Director's Cut the entire month.

PS4 gets nothing because it's shit

Crimson Dragon: Take Panzer Dragoon and make it not fun. Way to go bro!!

Actually I'll download it to try it out, because fuck it, free. Strike Suit Zero I guess I never got on PC, so I might as well try it new. Hopefully the PS4's free games aren't Killzone (because I just spent 20 bucks on that game at Best Buy, mistake), and like Infamous or something (because I own that game). Although I'd gladly take a freebie on Ground Zeroes. I love that demo of a game.

well it'll give me something to play on my XB1

I guess I kind of want to check out Strike Suit Zero, but am not too interested in Crimson Dragon. I'll certainly give them both a fair shake, though.

Is Crimson Dragon that bad?

#7 Posted by HadOne2Many (1279 posts) -

Two mediocre games I would never consider buying on the XB1. Better than something I already bought I guess.

TC is the living embodiment of salt.

#9 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (5089 posts) -

Crimson Dragon? Ooof.

At least Dishonored is decent.

#10 Posted by CanYouDiglt (7481 posts) -

Some good titles. I hope the PS4 has something worthwhile this time and at least give me a reason to consider getting PS+ again.

#11 Posted by chikenfriedrice (10516 posts) -

I will check those 2 XB1 titles out...why not

#12 Posted by SYSTEM-REBOOT (646 posts) -

Dishonored gone gold? was not that game released 2 years ago??

#13 Posted by TheEroica (13693 posts) -

Have to be honest, I really didnt jive with Dishonored. didn't like it, but glad to see MS giving the freebies away... gamers win.

Is it just me, or are the PS3 and XB360 getting better deals on their instant game collection/games with gold than their next gen counterparts?

#15 Posted by PapaTrop (1294 posts) -

Crimson Dragon looks like a turd, but I'm not entirely convinced that Panzer Dragoon Orta wasn't also a turd. It's been so long since I played that game.

Dishonored http://i.imgur.com/z0cHPM8.png

The other games sound as fun as a dirty toilet. Although at £35 a year for Gold even 1 strong game a month is worth it.

They say Blabadon was born inside a salt bed during high salt season. It was sunny too, so the salt was really hot and melded with him.

It's always been that way. 8th gen games are too new and still selling too well for 3rd party publishers to allow Sony/MS to give them away for "free". Just my guess.

I'll try Crimson Dragon. I have a friend who swears by it, but I wasnt spending money on it.

Same here. Free is free. Plus I like space combat titles. A solid month indeed.

@parkurtommo: I was actually born in Detroit which if I recall correctly was near large salt bed.

#25 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16788 posts) -

Dishonored is a great game, so anyone who hasn't played it yet really has no excuse not to.

#26 Posted by Salt_The_Fries (8971 posts) -

I've been wanting to rebuy Dishonored, after I had finished and traded it in, for a very long time.

Will the x1 games of July were actually really fun, max the curse and guacamelee. I hope at least one of those x1 games for august are decent.

I was going to buy Dishonored again... awesome timing!

#31 Posted by yokofox33 (29867 posts) -

I'll give Crimson Dragon a download. Why the hell not?

#32 Edited by TheRealBigRich (734 posts) -

That's for sure. Metascores = 67/100 and 56/100.

Well, I did call that Crimson would eventually be free at least.

To compare the machines free games for SW sake:

$60 XBL gets you Xbone's GwG free games. That moves GwG from 3 free games total to 5 GwG free games with these two mediocre games.

$50 PS+ is at 12 free games total plus the inbound announcement of two more games (14 free PS+ games) for PS4 in the next few hours/day.

Yes, you can get PS+ and XBL cheaper if you shop.

Max was okay (72/100 metascore), I beat it so that's saying something as it wasn't bad, but to be fair it was also the free game for June as well as July. Many I know beat Max in June before July began.

M$ cheaped out and used Max twice for two months which really sucked, considering the XBLGold service is $60. It wouldn't have been so bad, but Xbone's GwG (3 games since November launch) is already way behind PS4's PS+ (12 games since November launch), so I was sort of hoping M$ would take their new GwG more seriously. Both the Xbone and the PS4 are the practically the same age after all (Nov 2013 launches). Guacamelee is a classic and is fantastic, but I got it from PS+ a long time ago so I didn't want to replay it again, but it is a great game, I agree.

My point was the games of July was really one game of July and one game from June repeated.

PS4 is going to have some small indie game.

PS4 has been ok to me, granted I know some people prefer one for multiplats over the other but to me it's the PS4 as says most of the critics and tech sites.

Uhmm that being said it'll be nice to just start getting free retail games on both.

Yeah, it sounds like the better option. If I had 400 bones to throw away, I'd certainly get the PS4 for infamous and TLOU remake.
