You know, today I was getting my XBL Games On Demand store on. I saw Civ: Revolutions, and I was like "yeah, one of these days I'm gonna pick this up and give it a go like a bro". But here we are now.

Godcrosoft has given it to me for free for a price. That's awesome. Vagina.

Civ is good. It's really old, but it's good.

You can't spell GOLD without OLD. But seriously, fine picks as I've owned neither, and always wanted to play Civ: Revolution.

Dang, I have both these games. Older fun titles though. I agree Real Civ is better than 2008's Civ Rev, but it had a charm.

Simply Pathetic. PS+ gave those games for free a long time ago.

I guess checking these out won't hurt.
Always liked Civilization games. I hope this one won't leave a bad taste in my mouth :p

The 6 games Sony is releasing are all newer than CivRev. The game is 6 years old.

Sony is going to put a nail in their own coffin if they keep laying off workers and cancelling and delaying games.

As for the GWG, I'll give Civilization Revolution a try. I've never played it on the PC, but would like to check it out for myself.

Its amazing how the $60 people are paying for XBL ( which is $10 higher than PS+ ) isnt giving them any good games, seriously whats up with the terrible game selections? i understand MS are copying PS+ but at least do it the way PS+ is doing it.

They don't need to. They know xboners are not bright enough to not fall for it.

PSN+'s greatness is a recent phenomenon. It was complete shit when it first launched and occasionally with March's selection it can still be shit.

I seriously wonder if MS has someone go to a Gamestop and look at the $5 clearance bin for their selection.

Real Civ is about 1000x better, but Civ Rev is good for scratching an itch with a game of Civ that can be completed in only a fraction of the time of real Civ. I picked my copy up for $5, and I probably wouldn't have been happy paying much more than that, but at a huge discount or "free" it's worth owning, imo.

They should offer up games like Kameo and Lost Odyssey. Maybe they already have. I'm not sure. They really should showcase some of the good first party games that they put out early last gen so that Xbox 360 owners can be reminded that Microsoft used to put out a lot of exclusives and that maybe, just maybe, that could happen again for Xbone owners (Xbowners?).

LOL, what a joke. I guess this is the Xbone experience, paying more for less. You can't compare this shit lineup to what PS+ subscribers got this month for $10 less.

tbh, I was curious myself as to what the first batch of free ps+ games are since I didn't get it until around last June.

if there were others before this, by all means, show me them.

But isn't instant games collection for all intents and purposes the very thing we are trying to discuss here?

considering your response was to this "PS+ was complete shit for about a year and a half before it got good." i would go with no

the instant game collection just means there are always 12 games instantly available when your membership starts, with 2 or so games that cycle monthly. But PS+ always had the free games cycling monthly, prior to the Instant game collection

Oh, if that's the case, then alright. No, I went to see what the first batch of ps+ games was and all I kept running into was this picture. Any time there's an announcement now, they called instant games collection updates, so I thought that was just part of plus that handles the games. Aside from that, all I really know about plus is that it gave ps3 cloud saves and some magazine thing I don't even think runs anymore. Oh and the trials and demos, but all that wasn't pertaining to getting free games.

Personally, i think PS+ is the better value as a service, especially since I bought a PS3 at the end of the gen
