Thank goodness I don’t pay for Xbox Live Gold for the free games – another month, another poor showing for freebie titles – thankfully this month, I haven’t already purchased the Xbox One title so at least there’s that!

For the month of May, Xbox One owners will get CastleStorm: Definitive Edition, while Xbox 360 owners get Mafia II (available May 1-15) and F1 2013 (available May 16-31). I don’t know about you, but aren’t these titles a few years too late! I don’t mean to be ungrateful, but releasing old titles onto the program isn’t going to thrust it into the kind of limelight that Xbox would like.

As I said, we pay for Xbox Live for the multiplayer gaming, which thankfully is a solid platform and the free games are a bonus. Sometimes though, I wish they would put more effort into their choices or offer a similar program to last weekend’s NBA 2K15 and offer a limited time for the games – instead of giving away a game, you get to play it just for the month.

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
