New Xbox Games with Gold Announced

One of the biggest perks of Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold subscription is the ability to get four free games every month. While these games are usually older titles, video game fans are never going to turn down the opportunity to get free games. After weeks of anticipation, the Xbox Games with Gold have just been announced for the month of March.

Two games will be available to download at the start of March. “Trials of the Blood Dragon” is a stylistic motorcross game on the Xbox One that is unlike anything we have ever seen from the “Trials” franchise. If you are a fan of the other games in the series, then you will enjoy “Trials of the Blood Dragon.” The other game available on March 1 is the video game adaptation of the Pixar movie “Brave.” The cartoon platformer may not appeal to many older gamers, but the kids will absolutely love playing “Brave.”

The final two games offered to Xbox Live Gold subscribers can be downloaded starting on March 16. “Superhot” is easily the most interesting of the four games coming in March. The first-person shooter creates interesting puzzles by freezing time when your character stops moving. This means your bullets will only move while your character is also moving. The unique game mechanic earned “Superhot” rave reviews from the critics when it was released in February 2016.

“Quantum Conundrum” was probably overlooked by most video game fans when it was first released on the Xbox 360 in January 2012, but it is a game that everyone should play. “Quantum Conundrum” was designed by same person that created “Portal,” so both games share a lot of similarities. The graphics and sound in “Quantum Conundrum” are not great, but it still has some of the best puzzles in video game history.
