#1 Edited by lostrib (37708 posts) -

Dates and announcement can be found here

Additions being super time force on X1, Crimson Dragon will still be available

The big name game is Halo Reach on 360. Monaco will also be added for 360

And now y'all can debate about if PS+ or GwG is better this month

Looks like a pretty bad month for GWG too.

Shitty month....and I am tired of MS recycling the games on the X1. We got Crimson Dragon last month.

halo reach sucks ass, anyone who is fan of halo should not play it.

@lostrib: Damn, another bad month for PS+ and GWG. I still need to download Crimson Dragon though. I heard Monico was very good, so I'll definitely get that. Never played STF before, so I'll give it a try. Need to clear more space on my XBox 360. Everyone should already own Halo Reach. If not, this is a perfect time to pick it up. Pretty much the only must have game of the month.

It's hard on the X1 and PS4 because they really don't want to give away big quality value games yet.. I wanted to play super time force for a bit so I'm fine with it, but they really need to improve come the holidays.

Once the library grows they might move past this model. Recycling games.

Now if other publishers open EA access type services. I'm not sure where this will end up.

A lot of arcade games? Which I'm ok with. We'll see?

That sucks, I played about 5 minutes of Crimson Dragon and gave up. I'll give Super Time Force a shot I guess, might as well if it's free.

Why are they recycling games when GWG on Xbone is only a few months old? http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/2210/childplease.png

Hmm? GWG was only introduced to the Bone in June. Just before E3 I believe.

Super Time Force is the highlight for both PS+ and GWG for the month of Sept. I guess both Sony and MS are giving Destiny some play time.

I got rid of reach, I may grab it again.

Yes and I have received I think 5 full games through the XBL gold membership since.

The lack of content and games on these systems at this point in their infancy could play a part in this?

Am I following you correctly? I'm not sure what your point is?

Should they give away their whole library as a business? I wish they would. I just don't think it's realistic at this point.

I do love free though.

EDIT: I wish they would add free movies to this!

#17 Posted by freedomfreak (40954 posts) -

Wanted to try out Monaco, so cool, I guess.

Both months are mehlicious.

#18 Posted by gago-gago (9541 posts) -

Destiny is up to pre-load now on Xbox One. So yeah I don't think it's a coincidence both GwG and Destiny news coming out the same day. They really want to give Destiny some play time in Sept.

Wanted Super Time Force.

Yes that's exactly what I was getting at. http://www.nationstates.net/images/flags/uploads/facepalm_polar_bear__496558.jpg

Free is good though so this is where I stop nitpicking.

#21 Posted by Mr-Powers (371 posts) -

They should start giving out free movies too like someone else said. I know sony does but it's not part of plus. I saw some free doctor who episodes on there. Maybe it's easier for sony because they are also a movie/tv show company. I'll be surprised if sony doesn't also give ps2 game rental every month after psnow is out of beta.

I still need to beat reach though so this is good.

#22 Posted by magicalclick (22836 posts) -

Crimson dragon is better than the other mech game this month. All you need is to level up to get that laser dragon. Once you have laser dragon, everything starts go get easy. And hire those wingmen. They makes the game 5x easier. Of course, I think Panzor Dragoon Orta is way better.

#23 Posted by PapaTrop (1338 posts) -

Nothing I'd care to play.

#24 Edited by PrincessGomez92 (3615 posts) -

Everyone should download that Masterpiece of All Time, Halo Reach.

Don't you have to sway your body like a stupid twat to fly through rings and shit? LOL. No wonder lems sweep it under the rug. It's like your Knack. Or Superman 64 haha.

Ummm idk, I only used the controller and it still sucked....so if I had to sway like a twat I would have been even more annoyed.

Just heard that it was a kinect game. Is it retail or XBL download? Seems a bit content anemic for a Blu-Ray disc. Just my observation tho.

Download.....and when I started the game kinect wasn't involved....maybe you can but all the prompts were for the gamepad. So I can't imagine how shitty it would control with kinect.

Wait. ONE NEW GAME being added for the month for Xbone...again.

CRIMSON DRAGON was already free for August, now we get it AGAIN for September?

RECYCLING GwG games? NOT AGAIN!

M$ keep cheapening out...ugh. I thought they were done with this after the whole Max Curse/Recycling debacle.

One new game for Xbone for next month of September...

It's like they don't take GwG seriously.

On the plus side, Super Time Force is an 81/100 at Metacritic. Pretty good. Too bad it's the only new game on Xbone's GwG. Crimson Dragon we know isn't good as we learned last month, Crimson was free for August, but as a refresher it was a very low 56/100.

This will put XbOne's library of GwG free games to 6 games come September.

This will put PSFour's library of PS+ free games to 16 games come September.

PS4 16 free PS+ games >>> Xbone 6 free GwG games

Where's the competition? Why are M$ being so lame when the competition on PS+ isn't doing this and has been offering PS+ games since launch? I don't understand how they are letting the competition pull ahead like this. They have the money, they have the $400 Million dollar NFL deal, they bought timed exclusive Tomb Raider, what's the hold up on GwG?

Super Time force is actually a really good 2D game, I recommend you at least try it if you have not done so before.

Yeah I actually said in a thread that I wished MS would actually make a killer app for kinect. But then I quickly realized that isn't gonna happen. Since even lems were telling me I was stupid and they should focus on 'core' lol. I just don't think the tech is there yet to deliver this amazing motion gaming experience.

A shame because by all acounts it works well for some things while not so cool for others. But we all know that anything MS announce to do with kinect is bad for buisness. That thing is loathed lol.

I will download for sure and check it out, I'm just more annoyed with the Crimson Dragon thing.....they did that with Max 2 months in a row.

I never liked kinect for core games...it never really worked and I don't think it ever will. The only benefit is some voice commands during some games.

But I really like kinect for everything else it does with the Xbox One and I would miss it greatly if I didn't have it. And feel the people that are buying the kinectless X1 are missing out.

Oh yeah for sure. I imagine it has it's perks.

Warframe is coming to Xbox One on Sept 2. I think that's a free to play game.

Hell yea, let my cousin borrow my copy of Halo Reach and never got it back. Been wanting to replay it.

Kinect should just be an add-on. It was the focus on creating games to be played solely with Kinect that killed it.

Kinect gets used for a lot of interesting things on the PC. I know some people use it for motion-capture, and some people have made some pretty impressive stuff doing that.

That's what I'd love to see on the Xbox. Give me a game that, on its own is great, but include within it a Spore-like character creator, and a Kinect motion capture feature. Let me build an enemy, or hero, and animate a move set for it. Then let me take that character and play a story with it, or let me take it online and kill other players with it.

That would be a "killer app" for Kinect.

Yesss. That. Sooo much. Well done pal. That's what kinect is for. Get those petitions out for that game. I'm being serious, that is vision son.
