Get your gold on, Xbox 360 owners. Microsoft announced May's line-up of "Games With Gold" titles today. They'll be adding two more free titles to Xbox Live Gold subscribers' libraries over the next month. First will be the 2D epic action title Dust: An Elysian Tale, a much more mature story than its cartoon animals insinuates, and that will be followed by Saints Row: The Third. Saints Row: The Third really speaks for itself. Sadly, no update on when Games With Gold will come to Xbox One.
As per Microsoft's requirements for games approved through "Games With Gold" both Dust and Saints Row are priced the same as previous games released each month. Dust is priced at $14.99 and Saints Row: The Third is priced at $19.99. While it's understandable that Microsoft wants to keep each month in a certain budget, it's easy to get jaded when they're unwilling to break the norm for gamers -- especially when many of the games they release don't necessarily seem worth the prices their retail pricing implies.
Everyone make sure to login to Xbox Live today and download Deadlight before it expires and Dust takes its place! There aren't any second chances when it comes to Games With Gold (and Deadlight is well worth grabbing while it's available).
Both Dust: An Elysian Tale and Saints Row: The Third are excellent games and 360 gamers should absolutely be pleased with each title. Well, that is if they haven't played these years-old titles by now. Or if they haven't already bought them for a quarter of the price via a PC sale.
