If you haven’t experienced Swery65’s time-traveling detective game Dark Dreams Don’t Die (or D4) on the Xbox One yet, you’re in luck: It will be free for the month of January’s Xbox Live Games with Gold program.
On the Xbox 360, gamers will get MX vs ATV Alive from the 1st to the 15th, with fantastic RPG The Witcher 2 from the 16th until the end of the month.
Witcher 2 is a great game, but these 360 games seem like a pittance. MX vs ATV Alive is over 3 years old, and reviewed pretty poorly. With Motocross Madness having been free back in August, it’s essentially Microsoft giving out leftovers from the bottom of a Wal-Mart bargain bin.
Dark Dreams Don’t Die however, is excellent, and pays for your Gold Subscription in itself, so don’t fret too much. I hope that Microsoft figures out soon that giving out backlog games that barely anyone is asking for is less of a value add and just plain embarrassing, really.
What do you think? Is D4 enough for you? Are there any other games you want or expect to come out for free with the Games with Gold program? Let us know in the comments below!
