Calico will be available for the whole month of August, from the 1st to the 31st. ScourgeBringer will be available from August 16th to September 15th, while Saints Row 2 will be available for a few weeks, from August 1st to the 15th, and Monaco: What's Yours is Mine will be available for the second half of August, from the 16th to the 31st. All together, August's Games with Gold have an overall worth of $53.96 and 3,400 Gamerscore.

Saints Row 2 is the highest-rated of the lot, with a TrueAchievements community rating of 4.02/5, and it should take between 80 to 100 hours to finish up with the base game — we have a Saints Row 2 walkthrough to help there. Then there's Calico, which is rated at 3.69/5 and which should take just six to eight hours to finish up with its achievements. Next is ScourgeBringer with a rating of 3.41/5 and an estimated completion time of ten to 12 hours, complete with a ScourgeBringer walkthrough. Finally we have Monaco: What's Yours is Mine, with a rating of 3.13/5, an estimated completion time of 20 to 25 hours, and a Monaco: What's Yours is Mine walkthrough to help out too.

There's still time for a few of July's Games with Gold, with Beasts of Maravilla Island and Torchlight available until July 31st, and Relicta available until August 15th.
