    Tempted by some of the earlier Far Cry games but with non-E3 around the corner, will we see something about Ubisoft+ coming to Xbox (which might be worth an intro offer for the games i'm interestd in) or could the Classics be included with Gamepass much like it is with PS+ - kinda feel if Ubisoft was exclusive to the Sony service, it would have been shouted from the rooftops so i'm thinking it might be coming to Xbox too and June 12th showcase could be a good time to announce that

    I might be over thinking it but i have enough in my backlog that i can wait for the next time they're on sale (which with Ubisoft probs wont be long)

    I have Super Meatboy, Aven's Colony and Smoke and Sacrifice on steam but claimed all of them on Xbox anyway in order to get the Xbox achievements and gamerscore.

    Super Meat Boy is hard but apparently it has a 94% positive rating on steam so most gamers appreciate the challenge.

    Smoke and Sacrifice is Korean GWG, A Knights Tale is Japan's, replacing Aven Colony
    Do you have a link to A Knight's Tale by any chance?

    I see Super Meat Boy is free only on 360 marketplace. It does show up as free for me, but it asks for an SMS confirmation of a card purchase - and on the SMS it says I'm paying 15$. I figure it's probably a bug, as GWG on the old marketplace have always needed the card to be added to the account, but has anybody else had this situation?
    Yup it has happened to me in the past on a browser but it usually clears up after a few days so just try again. Officially it is not yet the first of June so some regions take a little longer to register the new GWG.

    Good to see we are already getting a sale on the latest LEGO Star Wars, too bad it’s only the deluxe edition though.

    Aven Colony free with Gold. Early June GwG?
    I believe so, although it is not early. This is the time they have always been released.

    Games With Gold Year 10
    Xbox One: 1 June - 30 June = Aven Colony
    Xbox 360: 1 June - 15 June = Super Meat Boy (repeat from June 2016)

    June's Games with Gold Revealed
    Isn’t Goat Simulator also a repeat?

    I would never buy 2URVIVE because it has the most stupid name for a game I have ever seen. WTF were the devs thinking? Let's make a game with a name that is impossible to pronounce, perhaps. Idiotic.

    TLDR: The "2" is an "S".

    No, Goat Simulator was only GWG once, in 2016

    Looks like I didn't notice that the link was pointing to the June 2016 GWG showing Super Meat Boy. I thought it was this June's reveal. Sorry about that.

    How about F.3.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon 3).
    He's not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the Underverse and returned with powers you can't imagine.

    I was hoping the Sniper Elite franchise would be on sale this week, given the recent release...

    Does anyone have XIII? Is it still a horrible accident? This game has always looked cool ever since the ps2, but it had a bad release and I heard no news whether it got attention or abandoned.
    I voted for kodos
