    Nice selection, definitely a great way to inflate your game library for the price of 1 indie game. Couple titles on there that I dont have yet and might want to play after I clear my backlog (haha yea.....).

    Nicely done MS! clap

    Indeed. That explains why they decided to have it. laugh

    I bought a couple of these games in the BC sale but that's okay. Bought the month. Will knock out a bunch. I'm done buying games with all the free games and my huge backlog.

    There are quite a few games that I had always though of buying, but never got around to doing so. Those Sega classics would be really cool and I've always wanted to try Halo 5.

    You're kidding, right? For starters, 14 days to check out 100 games. Why not a full month for those who pay for Gold? It would be a more effective strategy. Added onto that, most of these games are previous Games with Gold, which, unless you don't get free games since they're free or missed out on months, is useless. I do think this is a good idea, maybe a bit over priced with a starting lineup like this, but who knows, maybe they'll add greater and more recent games in. Thankfully there's Lego Batman and the Bioshock trilogy to work on.

    A ton of these have been on GWG, seems redundant to get this if you have Gold and keep up with those free games.

    The whole point is giving you 14 days to play some and get hooked to one and want to buy the month. Giving you a month would give you your fix and you wouldn't buy it.

    You're expected to play all 100 games in 14 days... its to give people a taste and see if they want more.

    I will say there are more 360 games than I'd like and less xbox one games but I'll jump in with this now and then during the gaming droughts.

    Personally, I still see this as a great entry point for new Xbox owners\players. Usually to my friends one of the things that convince them is the $25 a year for EA access' selection.

    Hopefully it will actually accessible this time. My insider trial they gave me was useless as I could never access the hub passed day one!

    I can't see myself putting out another $10 out per month based solely on the lack of gaming time to even play the games that I have currently from GWG. That being said, I may note a couple of games that are quick plays that I haven't gotten around to and take advantage of the trial period.

    I prefer to own my games in most cases, including this one. Don't feel tied to a service I may or may not use. I guess it is good if you missed all the sales and GWG over the past few years.

    Just counted. I'm getting 48 games I have not played:D

    As predicted, the bulk of the list is former GWG games and ancient 360 BC titles. If you've grabbed every GWG game and own Rare Replay, that's at least half the list.

    Also, the article should be updated with links to the 360 versions of the Bioshock series. Based on the image, it seems like it's those that are being offered and not the remasters.

    I already own most of what is on there that I want to play. So I think I will have to pass. Hopefully, the library will improve with time, but if I just obtained an XBox One and didn't have most of the games I already own, I would be a heavy user of this service.
