September 2018’s Xbox Games With Gold titles have been announced, so boot up that Xbox One (or your trusty old Xbox 360) and get ready to download. First up on Xbox One, it’s Introversion Software’s management sim Prison Architect. Players can design, build and run their very own prison complex, with building and management decisions impacting the lives of the inmates in positive or negative ways. There’s a surprisingly robust campaign mode to enjoy in this one, too. You can get your hands on Prison Architect between September 1st and September 30th. Although Prison Architect is also available on Xbox 360, this is specifically the Xbox One version, so it’s not playable on both platforms. Check out our review of this oddly engaging sim here.

Lock and load Okay, this list was never going to be easy to compile. As one of the most popular, eclectic and influential gaming genres, nailing down the list of the best FPS titles to just 25 games is an almost ridiculous task. So to help narrow things down, we made some hard and fast rules. Read them before you move on.Number 1: The games have to be first person, and shooting has to be the predominant game system (hey, the clue is in "FPS"). So no Gears of War, and no Resident Evil 7. Number 2: This list is about currently best, not historically most important. To keep this list accessible, we're only including games you can play right now on current-generation consoles, instead of having to hunt down a PS2 at a garage sale. Have no fear: we haven’t forgotten the influential games that came before. They have their very own slide that explains their importance to the genre before we get started. See if you agree with our choices, as we progress toward revealing our number … [Read more...] about The 25 best FPS games to play right now
Last week, Xbox Live announced its schedule of Games With Gold for December, bringing to 48 the number of free games it offered in 2016. Were they any good? What would they cost otherwise? In short, what do the numbers say about the value of this Xbox Live Gold benefit? We’ll try to answer that question this year as we have the past three years. To that, however, we’ve added a few more questions: How old is the game? Did Microsoft publish it? What publisher did Games With Gold use the most? Did these appear earlier on PlayStation Plus? These questions may shed light on where these free games programs are headed, particularly as the previous console generation ages and the Xbox One’s backward compatibility program continues to pile up old titles. What about PlayStation Plus? Getting Started In all, there were 48 games in Xbox Live Games With Gold for 2017, with an average Metacritic score of 77.19 and a combined retail price (at the time of the offer) of $1,029.52 The … [Read more...] about Xbox Games With Gold gave out $1,029 worth of games in 2017.
