Short Pause: "Ben and Bender form a Ben-tastic "Ben-sandwich" around Brent, as the fellas once again get together to talk the latest and greatest in the world of gaming. Topics this week include the releases of Outlast II and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Call of Duty: WWII is officially confirmed, the rumored SNES Mini, March's NPD results, Farpoint's gone gold, May's Games with Gold, and tons more!"
May’s a great month. It’s the month that I was born in, which usually explains why a Hellmouth opens near my home every time this year and the Rock also happens to share that day of vaginal escape with me. The most electrifying birthday date in the world aside, the first week of May is usually Christmas for Star Wars fans, with days four and five being a day of celebration and revenge respectively. Xbox is kicking off said celebrations with not one but two free Star Wars games this month. Here’s the list of what and when to expect them, provided your Xbox Live subscription is paid and up to date.
May's Games with Gold have been announced by Major Nelson. Next month you'll get your hands Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Director’s Cut as well as the awesome Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris which will be available as a free download from May 16th to June 15th. Xbox 360 owners get a Star Wars themed month, with Star Wars: The Force Unleased II through May 15th. Then on May 16th, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga will be available to download. Dont forget that Xbox One owners will be able to play the 360 titles thanks Backwards Compatibility. So what do you think? Not the strongest month but still some games worth checking out. Let us know your thoughts below.
