Those of you who’ve been a bit disappointed with the free games Microsoft has been giving out on their Games with Gold programme have quite a bit to be happy about this month, as Microsoft is giving away four pretty decent games.

They are:

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes (XB1) – Available all month long

How to Survive: Storm Warning (XB1) – Available from August 16th through September 15th

Metro 2033 (Xbox 360) – Available August 1st through 15th

Metro: Last Light (Xbox 360) – Available August 16th through 31st

Having played all four, I can confidently say this is a very good lineup, and if you enjoy the Metro games on 360 and want to see them in with better graphics, a higher frame rate and sharper textures, you can grab the Xbox One Metro Redux bundle for your local equivalent of $49.95.

Not too shabby a collection of games for simply having an Xbox Live Gold account, hey?

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
