ICYMI: Microsoft Reveals Games With Gold for August 2018

8:30 PM 0
More free games are coming for subscribers to XBox Live's Gold program n August. Racers and Adventurers delight because here's what you're getting.

XB1: Forza Horizon 2 (Aug 1-31)

Playground Games' entry, the seventh in the series, will likely be seen as the highlight of Games With Gold this month thanks largely to the upcoming Forza Horizon 4, announced at E3 2018.

Released in late September of 2014, Forza Horizon 2 put up big review numbers from a number of sites, ending up with an overall Metacritic aggregate score of 86%.

Featuring over 200 cars, the game sold over 2 million copies on the XBox One and Xbox 360 systems combined.

XB1: For Honor (Aug 16 - Sept 15)

Allowing for up to 8 players, the ambitious third-person action/adventure title For Honor was released in February 2017. Critics liked it. Players were indifferent.

Pretty much par for Ubisoft's mid-2010s course, really. But, hey. At least it's free!

X360: Dead Space 3 (Aug 1 - 15)

Still upset that Visceral Games got chewed up and spit out by the EA Machine? Yeah, us too. If you still enjoy firing up the XBox 360, however, you can have a few moments with their 2013 release, Dead Space 3.

With come-and-go multiplayer campaigns, link up with your friends whenever their around and continue the mission whenever they're not.

The game garnered review scores best described as "all over the damned place," prompting the cancellation of Dead Space 4, which remains a sore spot for fans of the series.

X360: Disney's Epic Mickey 2 - The Power of Two (Aug 16 - 31)

Yay?


NOTE: Assault Android Cactus and Death Squared are still available for Xbox One through August 1, as are Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Excuse Our Dust

10:52 PM 1


This week (July 9-13, 2018), I am updating the website. As such, some things may not work or appear exactly as they should during this time.

You may notice that the video game news site RSS feeds that were featured prominently on the previous site are not at the top of the page. As of early Monday, they are not on the page at all. Most of those feeds will be back by the end of the week. Some will not.

One major thing that we've added to the site is the ability to join the discussion via Disqus. There are hundred of sites that already utilize this format so having a Disqus account allows one to comment on any number of websites of literally any number of topics with just one login.

The 1-Up Club has also begun to create content on YouTube, available through the Multimedia tab on our main menu now and on the sidebar by the end of the week. Video versions of The 1-Up Club podcasts will be posted alongside our audio podcasts, hosted on Podbean. This does not include the Johnny Goodtimes Fun Factory or Block Party podcasts at this point but if Ryan puts those to video, we will also include links to that channel as well.

I'll leave you with that for now. I'm looking forward to completing the new website layout by the end of this week with new content coming this weekend.

Cheers,
- Brian
