    Civ Rev is great. I sold my copy so I'll definitely redownload this.

    MS is still hilariously behind the PS Plus program but this is a good game at least.

    Ha, I started a game of that this evening. Definitely a fun background game for a lazy Sunday.

    Minus the rampant hacking in multiplayer Dungeon Defenders is a lot of fun. You gotta watch out for the hackers tho if you do a public game cuz they'll come in with a sword the size of the entire map and 1 shot everything. What fun is that.

    Never played a civ game, maybe this is my chance to get into it.

    I tried liking Chariot. It was quirky, had neat music and something that seemed "new" with potential to be exciting. It was either too slow to pick up (brb dragging a sled around) or just never got very exciting, I didn't play enough to find out.

    Volgar (sp?) the Viking wasn't bad, it's extremely difficult tho, like Ghouls and Ghosts difficult. In the meantime I've picked up How to Survive (or whatever that zombie/diablo game was called) and Halo SpartanAssault for like $15 total.

    Next month is D4 which sounds pretty good.

    I'm into difficult games, but Volgarr was ridiculous. I deleted it one day out of frustration.

    Drath, have you tried D4 yet? I've been interested to try it. I'm not always a fan of bizarre-for-bizarre's-sake (gtfo, adult swim) but it works in some video games.

    I would have been rather bummed if I had spent any money on it.

    So is there a place I can go to see previous free games with gold? I just got an X-Box One and I saw Van Helsing but couldn't find an easy, direct way to find previous entries to download. And God damn is the PS4 layout better than X-Box One.

    On xbox it's a timed thing. Previous free games are no longer free. If you missed a game, you missed it. The benefit over PS Plus, I guess, is that once you "purchase" the free game, you own it forever.

    Sorry your first Game with Gold was now. Van Helsing looks like hot shit.

    What's your xbox gamertag?

    Pretty sure we're already friends on there. Lethean4.

    I'm playing Titanfall. I have Rise of The Tomb Raider but haven't touched it yet. And GoW Ultimate Edition but..Eh. Already beat it on 360.

    I kind of want to get Halo 5 but not sure what I'd think of it given Halo 3 was boring and I never liked Halo 1.

    Like used said, the free deals are timed. So you gotta redeem them in the timeframe that they are free.

    As for Halo 5, if you thought 3 was boring and didnt like 1, don't get 5. It's worse all around IMO and multiplayer graphics look like ps2.
