Absolute Xbox: This months Games With Gold are pretty good, what with Assassins Creed III (haters gonna hate) and Watch Dogs leading the pack, but you can add another one to the list by being a bit of a sneaky sneak.
Its reached June 16th (just where is this year going?), which means that 2 new Games With Gold are available for that magic price of FREE! This time, its Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins that are available, and by my reckoning thats at least 200 hours of gaming for zero pounds. Watch Dogs took a little bit of criticism on release but I played it to death on release and loved it. Dragon Age Origins, although not my cup of tea, was critically acclaimed. Links to the 2 games on Xbox.co.uk can be found here - Watch Dogs and Dragon Age Origins. And don't forget the awesome Speedrunners is still available if you are after some 4 player insane multiplayer action! Link here - Speedrunners.
Neil writes "Each and every month Xbox gamers get access to not just one, not two, not even three, but four free Xbox titles with the Xbox Games With Gold scheme. This month however things are a little different, as five free goodies are coming the way of Xbox Live Gold subscribers thanks to Xbox Games With Gold for June 2017. But whilst the quantity is no doubt large, can the same be said of the quality of free gifts being sent our way during the next four weeks?"
