Oh boy! The AAA titles that we’ve all been waiting for since Microsoft launched Games with Gold are finally here, and it’s got me moaning as loudly as Lara Croft when she gets impaled by a tree!
Let me turn things down a notch, though, and give you Microsoft’s March line-up of free games! Starting now until March 15, our lovely lady Lara Croft will be free for the taking; well, sort of. Xbox Live Gold members can now score a copy of Tomb Raider for the Xbox 360. If you’ve been living in the dark depths of an abyss, Tomb Raider is a retelling and reimagining of the famed heroine as she becomes the archaeologist-adventurer we all grew up with– minus the triangle boobs. It’s a great game with a fresh perspective of a beloved character and is worth the free download!
If you’re looking for another ruggedly striking hero who is male, you’ll have to wait until March 16th. The wait is definitely worth it, however, as BioShock Infinite is free for Xbox 360 players with Gold subscriptions. And while I would love to yell “CATCH!” at you and toss you a free copy, I don’t have the power to conjure por… Well, let me avoid the spoilers here and just say I’m not Elizabeth, nor are her abilities within my paygrade. Get the game when it becomes free at the latter end of March and play it nonstop! You’ll be captivated by the storyline and then you’ll hate yourself a bit for finishing it so quickly.
For Gold members on the Xbox One, Microsoft hasn’t forgotten about you either: prepare to jump into the fantastical world of Rayman Legends! Play with yourself, or better yet, with your friends, as you jump, run, and beat your way through timed levels, challenges, and fun madness! You can grab your copy for free now until the end of March.
Unfortunately, Sony has yet to reveal what their free PS Plus games will be for March. It could be because of the announcement of PlayStation Now adding more titles to their catalog, or that they’re gearing up for something big this week with GDC and PAX East both taking place.
PlayStation players, hold onto your horses for now, and we’ll be sure to update you when any news breaks on PS offerings.
