GAMES WITH GOLD: February 2018

GAMES WITH GOLD: February 2018

It’s the end of January… somehow. I swear the earth is spinning faster these days. Anyhow, the start of a new month means free games for Xbox One and 360 owners, and free stuff is always a good thing.

These are the games you can get your hands on this coming month.

First off for the Xbox One owners, you’ll be stepping into the shoes of Lo Wang (lol) in Devolver Digital’s edition of first-person shooter Shadow Warrior. While not the most spectacular game around, and at times a bit repetitive, I’m sure you’ll be able to get a bit of fun out of it, like any FPS. It will be available from February 1st until February 28th.

The other title the next-gen (new-gen? now-gen? who cares) owners will be getting is Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India. Part of the 2.5D series of the massively popular, if at times frustrating, series, you play as Arbaaz Mir, trying to recapture a precious artefact for the Assassin Brotherhood. It will be available from February 16th until the 15th of March.

Now let’s do a 180 and check out what’s on the 360 this week! (I am so very, very sorry you had to read that)

 

Starting on February 1st through to the 15th, 360 owners will be able to get their hands on Split/Second, the high-octane arcade racing game from Black Rock Studios. I have this game and, despite it being well received by critics, I felt like the only one who did own it. Hopefully being available for free might be able to kick-start its cult status, something we’ve seen happen with other games.

And last but absolutely not least, from the 16th of February until the 15th of March you’ll be able to pick up the absolute classic from the Dreamcast, Crazy Taxi. This was the very first game I ever played on the Dreamcast and was easily among my favourites, despite many “better” games by way of gameplay and graphics that came after it. If you’ve never played it or are just feeling nostalgic I’d definitely be putting this on the download list as it’s always good to have a game that you can just pick up and play without completely forgetting what it was you were doing the last time you played it.

So go forth and download, my geeks! May good gaming be in your future.
