Xbox Games with Gold titles revealed for November


Microsoft has announced its November Games with Gold, with Xbox 360 owners getting hold of Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise for free until November 15.



Once November 15 comes, Viva Pinata will be switched out and Red Faction: Guerrilla will take its place until November 30.

So what about Xbox One owners, well Volgarr the Viking, the newest ID@Xbox game to be released, will be your free to download game for the month.

I dont know whats going on with the games they are putting up, we bought next gen consoles to play next gen games, and all they feed us with is games that look like they should be on a sega mastersystem

People are constantly bitching and moaning about the games that both Sony and Microsoft are offering, if you don't like them or don't see the value in the memberships then cancel it and shut the fuck up complaining, Yes the games might not be brilliant but there very good value considering for me it works out at about £2 a month as i just buy 1 year gold of eBay every year for £25, maybe the people complaining should look elsewhere for cheaper membership prices?

i think sony wins on this in regards to PS4 vs XBone. more newer titles (to the platform) and better games (got them all on PC). 360 better than ps3 though

Danny_936 I think your getting the wrong end of the stick here mate, Im not complaining about the cost of memberships, just the sad quality of the games being fed to us, sony and microsoft both promised gamers that good quality next gen games would be avalible, and as of yet were all still waiting for these games to come.

Not a single Xbone owner should be complaining about getting Volgarr

What kind of games do you expect for around a £3 a month (when bought yearly) membership? if you expect anything more then arcade/indie games then you are clearly delusional.

No 2nd game, probably means Crimson Dragon is free yet again for another month. Volgar should be good, but it would have been good for the Xbox ONE if they did do a full retail game for November, to celebrate its 1 year anniversary. Dead Rising 3 would have been a good choice, as it is a good Halloween game, and where it is on Steam now, may put people off buying a Xbox ONE if they can play it on their PC. It being free on Xbox ONE could sway them to get a Xbox ONE possibly. Microsoft are giving away free games in the US, so instead of doing that they could have given one away with Games with Gold instead. Games like Vokgarr the Viking are good for existing owners, but I doubt it will sway people on the fence on getting a Xbox ONE, whereas games like Dead Rising 3 would do. This is how the PS3 rose in popularity, with loads of retail games being given free each month.

Hmmm. Getting and Xbone to get Dead Rising 3 for free when it runs at 720p 30fps or buying it for the PC you already own for £30 (It will be around £15 during Christmas) where it will run at whatever you want it to. Are you joking? Why would it being free sway a PC gamer?

That is assuming all PC owners have the best equipment. I am sure that my PC will run Dead Rising 3, but it will be probably be 720p and 30FPS or maybe less. It is over 2 years old now, and at least needs a new more powerful graphics card Also it is not just Dead Rising 3 that would sway people but the thought of more games like that being free. the Xbox ONE has nothing but arcade / no retail games for free so far. So if I had not already got a Xbox ONE and DR3 it would be a toss up with getting a new graphics card or getting a Xbox ONE and getting full retail games for free. Games like Sunset Overdrive, FH2 and Halo are too new for free.

The only free games a PC gamer would buy those consoles for are the exclusives since every 3rd party game that M$ or Sony release for free will be discounted to a couple of £ on PC in the same timeframe.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Also you say your PC is over 2 years old but tbh that doesn't mean much since my GPU (while I bought it last month) was released last year, & in turn the R9 280X is just a rebranding of the HD 7950 which was released almost 3 years ago

The people who complain about indies are the people who refuse to see some inovation in the market place. They need this exposure. And why would Sony and Microsoft offer big games during this holiday anyway when the publisher will be hoping to sell Ryse, DR3, Knack etc. to new owners.

My whole PC is 2 years old, including the graphics card which is a GTX 560 Ti. Just did a test for Lords of the Fallen and it meets minimum specs, and for recommended requires at least a GTX 760. So that is £200, to keep on gaming or go xbox ONE and not need upgrade again in 2 years time, I was hoping it would have lasted a bit longer. I was not too happy with the performance of Watch Dogs and a test claims I have the recommended spec but could do better with 760. I found the Xbox 360 version of Watch Dogs gave a smoother and better performance. If I did not have a Xbox ONE I would probably get a Xbox ONE and not upgrade PC for now, if have to upgrade graphics card every 2 years. The only games I get on PC are PC only, like Star Wars The Old Republic, and until I can no longer play these then that will be the time for an upgrade. My PC made the Xbox 360 redundant, but now the Xbox ONE and PS4 have made having a PC redundant.

The GTX 560 is almost 5 years old and wasn't it around £100 when it was released? You really can't expect to still be using it. Also a GTX 560 is bang on the recommended specs so I have no idea where it says the GTX 560 is min

Actually seeing as the ti version has 2Gb of VRAM I assume you paid a premium?
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 2 years ago
I paid about £200 for mine. A 760 will cost about that too. As for indies I do not mind them and not complaining about having them, but when it is indie month in month out, needs 1 full retail game to spice things up a bit. Also I can run Volgarr the Viking on my older Pentium 4 PC. Indies do not show off next gen hardware and are only good for existing owners who probably would not have bought them and does not attract new owners at all, and MS will not be selling DR3, Ryse to anyone.. Plus if MS want to sell full retail games to new owners then why give out any free game to new US owners last month? Reason is, to boost sales. If they can give free retail games like that out, then why not use their Games with Gold to do so instead? Maybe they will do for Dec, and be a treat for people having one for Dec 25th or will it be Bah Humbug?!

43 if I counted rightly, was 45 but sold Alien and Murdered Soul Suspect, will probably rebuy Alien in a few years time when it is free or under a tenner. This month trading in my Xbox ONE for the COD Advanced Warfare 1TB console, plus will be getting GTA V, AC Unity, Lego batman 3, Halo MCC, Far Cry 4, Will probably hold back on Draogn Age and hopefully get that in the EA vault next year.

Who cares about showing off the systems 'hardware'? Indie games are a must in this industry, and when you consider players from Naughty Dog, 2k, Ninja Theory etc. are happy to drop down and work at studios making indie games. And anyone buying an XB will still be curious to pick up Ryse or Dead Rising 3. If a game isn't a system seller it doesn't mean people aren't interested. If MS paid Capcom to put DR3 on Games with Gold, it would have to be a lot for EVERYONE who owns a XB1. The fact they're just looking at improving sales is why they're offering some free games out at the moment because the amount of free games offered out is much smaller. It's hwy they waited to sell TF for free with new consoles, without announcing it straight away, as they had already sold normal consoles to people. So the people getting the 'free' TF was a much smaller number.

just counted - on shopto there is literally 45 Xbox one games available to buy. Must own pretty much every game or a lot of XBLA games... My pc was last updated about 4 years ago - running SLI 480's and still runs pretty much everything at max settings. the 480's are better than most newer cards they are just power hungry, noisy and hot. Had to water cool mine.

Mostly retail, I bought Crimson dragon and Killer Instinct at launch, and got lucky with Max and Halo Spartan Assault. I tend to hold back on digital games and only get them when got nothing else to play, and I am still interested in D4, The golf Club, and still waiting on Zoo Tycoon on digital to get a deal - if I buy it now I bet next week it will be on sale ShopTo does not have all retail games, when it goes out of stock it is gone, one game I want is Lego Movie, but waiting for a decent price, but ShopTo no longer have it.

If you're still waiting on D4, The Golf Club, Lego Movie and Zoo Tycoon, you must own literally every indie on XB to have 43 games.

On Xbox.com there is currently 135 different currently available games, and some are doubled up (NFS Rivals has ordinary and complete, and Ryse or ryse Legendary, and Sunset Overdrive occupies 3 slots with preorder and deluxe edition), probably about 100 or so in total. Still do not have Outlast, Walking Dead (Both Seasons), Styx, defense Grid 2, Castlestorm, Killer Instinct 2, Nutjitsu, Flockers, Stick it to the man, Contrast, Valiant Hearts, Another World, Sixty Second Shooter prime, Trials Fusion, Strider. Most of the indies I have I have gotten for free - Super Time Force, Chariot, Max, Halo Spartan Assault, Peggle 2 and Plants vs Zombie with EA Access, Guacamalee, Pinball FX2 and Spark are just free, and now Volgarr the Viking. Every single free game has been an indie so they have not been neglected at all, but it is about time to have 1 retail game free.

Chariot is the 2nd free game this month, not Crimson Dragon.

The GTX 480 has 1.5gb of VRAM am I right? Still sucks that Crossfire or SLI doesn't add to your VRAM, 6GB for Ultra in Shadow of Mordor would be nothing

Talking about Xbox one games, i have played 50 games so far and i still have another 3 that i haven't played yet and i plan on buying another 6 this year, Out of the 50 games i have currently played, 30 of them are retail games and 20 of them are arcade/indie digital games, 13 of those 50 games were utter shit and got traded in or deleted within days and the other 37 games i played i did enjoy and complete the story on them all, i didn't 100% them all (a few game i did) as that stuff usually bores me at times but i did rally up about 35,000 Xbox One gamer score in the process which just put me up to 100,000 as of yesterday.

Indie games being free from time to time is good, as if you like the game then you wonder what other indie games there are that you are missing out on, but giving indie games each and every month probably does not do indie devs much good, as the way I see it at the moment is "why buy indie game when it will probably be free next month?" so indie devs end up getting no money, unless MS gives them the money instead for each and every user who "buys" the game for free.. I mainly save my money for retail games, if they start giving out free retail games, then I will hold back and buy less retail games in hope they become free, and then buy indie games with the money I save from not buying as many retail games. It is the reason why I did not buy Outlast the other week when it was on sale.

I just buy indie/arcade games that i am interested in, i was a bit let down by this months free game as i wanted it to be costume quest 2 and it ended up being volgarr the viking which still looks ok to play so i just bought costume quest 2 instead as i think it looks quite decent but i have started buying all of my digital games from the US Xbox live store as of a few months ago, as overall i save about 33% compared to buying them from the UK Xbox live store, which is a quite a lot money being saved considering how many games i have bought digitally.

yeah 1.5 but not had an issue with anything thats came out up until recently (not played any new games on ti for a while) - just finished re-building my pc. God a SSD from CEX and put win 8.1 on it before and just re-wired the whole machine. all 8 HD's now fit nicely in the case rather than sat at the side of it and all the wires are tucked away. I've even labels the side of the drives so I know what letters each one is - its annoying when 1 drive isn't working and you have no idea which it is because they are not labelled!

I can imagining. Most games now need at least 3gb to run ultra. Not counting Shadow of Morder's 6gb cos that's just uncompressed high and not counting Evil Within's 4gb cos that is one of the worst ports in years
