I have some good news and some bad news for you. With this being the middle of February, we’re losing 2 Games with Gold. Good news is this means we’ve gained 2 new Games with Gold. Zheros and Sacred Citadel are being retired.
The two new member of Games with Gold are Styx: Master of Shadows (2/16-3/15) along with Gears of War 2 (2/16-2/29). Both are playable on Xbox One with Gears of War 2 being a backward compatible Xbox 360 game.
Styx: Master of Shadows: Guide the goblin assassin Styx through the vertical and multi-layered Tower of Akenash. Styx is actually a fairly competent stealth game with a few good ideas. If you’re a fan of Splinter Cell, Metal Gear or even Hitman you should definitely give this one try.
Gears of War 2: This is the second installment in the franchise that rocked the 360. Epic went back to the drawing board to improve almost every aspect of Gears of War. I do understand many of you will already own this title. Those that don’t should think about taking the plunge. I find the story to be middling but the gameplay is still tight and fun.
