Not sure how but apparently it’s already September. With a new month comes a new set of Games With Gold. Xbox One users will be able to download Prison Architect all month starting on September 1st. Livelock will also be available starting September 16th until October 15th. Xbox 360 users will be able to download Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars from the 1st to the 15th, Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World will be available from the 16th until the 30th.
If you’ve ever had dreams of owning a prison then boy do I have news for you. That’s exactly what you do in 2015’s Prison Architect. You are tasked with every possible aspect of running your very own prison. Everything from the how prison is laid out to rehabilitating inmates is your responsibility. I am actually a little interested in this game. I will probably save myself the $30.00 (USD) and download it.
Next up we have Livelock. I have literally never heard of this game until now. That being said it actually looks pretty compelling. We’ve all played games like this one before. Top-down twin-stick shooters like Livelock and Ruiner are nothing new. Two things that set this title apart from other games like it are the art style and the level of teamwork you need to complete certain skirmishes. Livelock usually sits at $10.00(USD).
Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
For the first Xbox 360 title, we travel to a galaxy far far away to play Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. I very much enjoyed playing through this game with my younger brother when it first came out back in 2011, so I won’t be downloading this one. If you have a younger sibling or young child you’d like to turn into a gamer this is a great place to start. Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars usually sits a $20.00(USD) on the Microsoft store, it goes for half the price in most retailers.
Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World
Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World is a collection of the classic Wonder Boy series. This was also the first time Monster World IV was officially translated into English. When I was a kid I had a Sega Genesis; playing this will surely bring back memories. Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World usually sits at $10.00(USD) on the Microsoft store.
September’s Games With Gold isn’t nearly as impressive as August’s. Hopefully, we will get a better selection next month. Hey, free is free so go ahead and download all 4 of these titles and save yourself the $70.00(USD). I’ll be downloading at least the Xbox One titles.
