I could have sworn that the Lara Croft game we got before was for the xbox one, not the 360

Yeah guardians has been on before but there where a few titles near the start of the programme before I realised it was a thing that I missed so if they put a few of them back on its not a problem for me.

Guardians of Light is a massive worry, it was a Games with Gold title before back in 2014.

This is worse than getting Mercenaries this month because what if it becomes like the Japanese Games with Gold where they constantly get repeat offerings.
I know right!

They should give games like Fear 2 for free since that hasn’t been repeated shock

I suppose it has to be authorised by developers if they wish to list their game for free so but that’s example there of a game that hasn’t been games with gold...
“The Shadows Rushed Me” achievement should be a 1:00 ratio

Can't remember the last time they gave a expensive game. WRC6 was 10€ on sale, battlefield was free and also came with EA access...

It might be because Ive been under a rock but I havent read up on Celeste, though I own Farcry and the TR game so it will be a welcome addition regardless ✌

I'd rather another OG Xbox game over a repeat. Poor form for your Xmas offering MS warning

Get FC2 done while the servers are up. Its been a royal mess as of late!
It would be a poor xmas offering in January ;)

Good month if it wasn't for the repeated game.
I hope it's a mistake. Might help to contact MS about that.

Keen to check out Celeste, like Q.U.B.E. 2, was unavailable in Australia until it went GWG, hopefully the same here as I was anticipating not being able to get it in the holiday sale

So very happy about Celeste, what a great game to give with gold. Wanted that for ages.

I mean Celeste ain't exactly cheap for non-goliath game.

I'd support any of the Fears for sure, even though I own most of them. In fact, FEAR Files please. Only one I don't have I think.

Also, yeah, it's probably hard for them to get offers/approval during the Holiday season since that's probably one of the best selling times for most companies.
Fear is the mindkiller.

Is this the first time a game has been games with gold twice?
PunkyLiar doing the research like compute

I'm sure a few of us are really curious on that.
Someone knows me a bit too well.

In the early days of the program on Xbox One, some titles were offered over multiple months -- Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, Crimson Dragon, and Pool Nation FX -- but these weren't repeats, just that they had longer periods in the program than what is now a more common period of a month.

There has also been cases of a game being offered on Xbox One during one period of time and on Xbox 360 during another. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Castlestorm spring to mind. There was also the month that The Walking Dead was offered on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 simultaneously. Technically these aren't repeats either, although some would disagree.

Some regions have seen repeat titles before. Regions like Australia, Japan and Germany don't always have access to the listed game due to certification issues or something similar that means the game isn't available on their Store. As such, they get replacements, and over the years, some of those replacements have been repeat titles. For instance, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Kalimba have both popped up in these regions more than once.

However, for regions like America and the majority of Europe where availability isn't usually an issue, this is indeed the first time a game has been offered on multiple occasions on the same platform.

Awesome month! Been wanting to play Celeste and I'll boost FC2 for sure. I started that game way back in 2009 but only played the single player.
