XBL: Games with Gold

Lol, I remember playing Damnation on a PC. One of the worst third person action games I've seen (it also has a 36 Metacritic score).
It is horrible. Stormrise ain't much better either. If this is real, it will be easily one of the worst GWG months ever (specially when the "big" games are a pack for a f2p game and the worst soulsborne game)

Something like this just after Kane & Lynch 2 is too much to endure
 
Damnation-Stormrise would be one of the worst line ups ever. it's most likely fake anyway but I wonder why they aren't going with high quality indie games, 360 is full of those. But I guess, judging from years of PS+ comments, mediocre/bad retail games are still received better than quality indie games :/
 
Bayonetta for the win! (Also includes three other games)

- Slime Rancher - looks interesting. Always happy to see at least one family friendly title
- Bayonetta - already own digitally but super stoked for anyone who does not
- Trials Fusion - I've always wanted to try this Trials game but never got around it.
- Red Faction: Armageddon - Don't know much about this one nor does a quick scan peak my interest

I was thinking in my head already that it would either be that my Dark Souls Collection would be complete for free, or another sad individual with nothing to do ended up wasting their time for nothing.

It was #2, but the real deal ended up better overall I'd say. Plus I still don't own any of the games so that is always a win in my book.

Never played Bayonetta since I already consider Ninja Gaiden 1, Black and II on Xbox the untouchable pinnacles of the action genre. But I'll check it out sometime for free I guess.

Slime Rancher is supposed to be fun but I never checked out so that sounds like a good find for me as a new discovery. The Trials series as solid so I welcome this one as well too. Don't know about this one but Red Faction is supposed to be a solid series also.

One really creepy thing I do is just repeatedly shit on GAF while sarcastically calling it a "top tier gaming forum" so feel free to report me if I keep doing this.
Not bad, I look forward to playing these games

I love all those NG games but wtf. Bayonetta is a totally different beast from NG and you have done yourself a disservice as an action game fan by not having played it bro!
 
Been on the cusp of buying Slime Rancher a few times but never pulled the trigger so I'm quite happy with this.
In the exact same boat here.

This is the first month in a VERY long time where I'm actually interested in all 4 games and don't already own any of them (on Xbox at least, but now I won't have to plug my Wii U back in for Bayonetta).

I'm pumped.
 
That's a damn fine lineup, wow.

Fortunately you'll be able to correct your grave error soon.

Protip: watch the cutscenes at least once. The story is more or less incoherent the first time through but Bayonetta's attitude is gold.

Also, use a guide so you don't miss the weapons. They are all great and some of the best ones are the hardest to find.

And definitely use the code to buy Bazillions (look it up on GaneFAQs or whatever). So good.
