Thumbs up for the Max bonus, didn't have an X1 when they ran it the first time. That's 3 pretty solid games this month I haven't played yet.

@dilldoser: It actually is free

$60 for Xbox live is covered by the multiplayer and other services

Games such as this is considered a bonus, you don't think all of this is worth $60 do you?

Sacred 3???

I've never even heard of the first two. What is this?

Also, what is Operation Flashpoint?

Obviously I'm going to duckduckgo these but anyone able to vouch for them being worthwhile?

Sacred 3 is like a Diablo game.

OFP is a military FPS

Both good games for no extra charge.

"Sacred 3 is like a Diablo game." - Ewwwwww
"OFP is a military FPS" - If there is Sniping, my fiance might dig that. Not my cup of tea though.

Thanks for the info. *Thumbs up*

Just for the heck of it I checked GWG last night and there was a free game I DL'ed but it wasn't Thief lol. Can't recall the name of the game, suppose I'll see when I get home later.

Anyway, I'll DL all these and play them all on X1, good stuff.

Thanks but no, I DLed and played some of that at the beginning of the month.

I'm so curious to know what it was and why it was free, can't wait to get home and look. lol

I'm off work on Friday. I might have to take a run at Thief. Hopefully it's worthwhile

God knows it better be worthwhile! All that work it takes to press A on the controller and wait for it to download free of charge can be crazy exhausting...

@jcharp: The actual online store is current, it was just the promotional page from the Live website, I meant. Best of both worlds!

@snugglebear: "I just signed into Live and the new ones arent ready for download"

That's not true. They've been available for download for about 12 hours now (in Europe anyway). They always become available at, or shortly after midnight on the day they're supposed to. If the Games With Gold page hasn't been updated, just navigate directly to their store page.
