Microsoft has announced that free copies of A World of Keflings and Iron Brigade will be distributed in November as part of its ongoing Games with Gold promotion.

A World of Keflings, Ninjabee's kingdom-crafting adventure, will be available to download for free to Xbox Live Gold members from November 1 through November 15. A World of Keflings will replace Halo 3, which is October's second game.

Double Fine's third-person tower defence title Iron Bridge (formerly Trenched) will take over from November 16 through November 30.

As part of the Games with Gold promotion, Microsoft will give away one free game every two weeks to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. The scheme was originally scheduled to last to the end of 2013, but Microsoft has now continued it indefinitely.

Honestly as a Gold subscriber this does kind of offend me, I wanted the Iron Brigade game but I have kingdom for keflings and don't play it. I have too many games to play anyway. I appreciated Dead Rising 2 and Fable 3 but the rest I either own, or don't particularly care.

@Xx_DemonSoul_xX @Grenadeh Or AC2 which was LITERALLY the first game I ever played on my 360 years ago (Yea I was a late adopter). Fable 3 and DR2, even though Fable 3 reportedly sucks, but I haven't even finished DR yet. I can say the same about PS+ though. I download all the games for future use. I played Sleeping Dogs for like 1 hour and liked it. Hitman A I already owned and hated. Same with Spec Ops, like the game, already had it. Same with DSC and UC, same with Jet Set Radio, and Darksiders.

MS should be giving away games like Halo remaster or Halo 4, or Gears, with Gold, not indie stuff. Or Lost Odyssey or anything decent.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I have Halo 3, most Xbox owners do other than maybe kids or people who hate Halo (which is odd to even own an Xbox in that case), but haven't played 4. I heard it's pretty good?

<< LINK REMOVED >> I'd say Halo 3 was better than Halo 4. definitely worth a play.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> LOL Haven't touched WoW since Lich King. Most people in SWToR don't piss and moan in the random PvP queue. But some of the people in there act like the Super Bowl or World Series is on the line. You get them wound up enough and they just quit the round and someone quieter jumps in.

@Riddick123 @Grenadeh @Xx_DemonSoul_xX I troll my own "teammates" on WoW too but that's 9 years of trolling. Like, there's no excuse for you sucking at the game. They have made it literally the easiest it could ever possibly be. Even if you don't spit mad-deeps, at lower level, especially if you're a tank - do your job. Who honestly lets a party die by not tanking mobs?

@Xx_DemonSoul_xX @Grenadeh ON PS3 AND 360 IN HD! AND PC! Or you can get a dolphin emulator and play it on PC, which is why I have yet to beat REmake or 0. Can't do it, I need it to be natural.

@Xx_DemonSoul_xX @Grenadeh I had to actually delete games from my PS3 a while back because I tried to download like Biohazard Revival Selection and it told me I was out of space. I was like WHAAAAT?

Should replace it with a 500 gb model. I broke the faceplate anyway on accident. Thank you, Raiden, you fruit ninjaing fucker of a game.

@Xx_DemonSoul_xX @Grenadeh I have....problems. Basically. I like to open big picture mode and look at mah gamez. Then never play any of them. Mostly due to hard drive space.

I spend more time browsing store and finding custom Steam grid icons, with Steam, than I do playing any of the games lately. Like if you look at my stacks on here, I'm playing 13 or so games at once and never finishing any.

@Xx_DemonSoul_xX @Grenadeh I bought RE5, RE6, DMC4, DR2, and Revelations during the Capcom anniversary sale. The only game I didn't have already was DMC4. I had considered it many times. When I go to GameStop I try to troll the 10.00 and under section first until I absolutely can't allow myself to spend money on anything else in it, but DMC4 even being 5 dollars was never one I got.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Not if you A) Hate Square Enix and aren't fond of Eidos games since Square Enix bought Eidos or B) Like the original 2 Deus Ex games. It's not a terrible game, but I don't consider it that good.

@Xx_DemonSoul_xX I had to start being extra careful in Fable 2 when my kids got old enough to understand things of the world. Like me getting upset when men picked up on me and why one of my kids looked Polynesian.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> I already had BF3 on PC but I picked up the free one for the trophies. Deus Ex HR I also bought day one on PC and I passionately hate that game. Spec Ops, Biohazard Revival Selection, Sleeping Dogs, Darksiders, etc those are decent enough, but again I already own much of what is offered on both systems.

...I have problems, obviously < this guy owns 5 copies of RE5 gold. Well, .4, one was stolen.

@sakaixx @Grenadeh @Xx_DemonSoul_xX It's like "OHHHHH you didn't follow the highlighted path and do what we told you to! Fail!!!!!!"

On that note, when I started AC4 on tuesday - the mission where you have to steal the key from the captain? I ended up killing him because I wasn't going to deal with trying to pickpocket him in front of 90 soldiers (they spotted me) and it actually let me kill him!!!!

I was amazed.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Only one I grabbed was Fable 3 just for the sake of having it. My kids seem to like it. I laughed when they released AC2. Anyone who wanted game probably bought and finished 3 times before the free game was available.
