April 2017 Games With Gold

April 2017 GWG

Time sure is flying.  It’s time again for this month’s games with gold from Microsoft.  This month’s games seem to be a bit on the dark side:

  • Ryse – Son of Rome – We got this one with our XBox One and haven’t played it yet.  It was fairly heavily advertised pre-release for its graphical prowess.  We’ll see how it stands up.
  • Walking Dead – Season Two.  I don’t like the Walking Dead TV series and zombies just aren’t my thing.  But I love just about anything Telltale puts out and The Walking Dead series is no exception to that rule.  The story telling is amazing and it plays like a “choose your own adventure” game in that your decisions drastically alter the future of your game.  I have played season one and I’m looking forward to adding season two.
  • Darksiders looks to be a post-apocalyptic game involving demons and the end of time.  I don’t know that I’ll play this one.
  • Assassin’s Creed – Revelations – You can’t go wrong with an Assassin’s Creed game, so I’ll definitely be adding this one to the backlog.  I’m not sure what it’s about, but I’ll give it a shot.
