http://Free Xbox 360 games of May in...GS News UpdateOpen world stunner and indie darling take us into the summer
May's free Xbox games with Gold are Dust: An Elysian Tail, available from the 1st to the 15th, and Saints Row 3, available from the 16th to the end of the month, as per the latest Major Nelson blog post. How do you like those apples, internet?
Saints Row 3 will probably be familiar - it's an open world effort from Volition that gleefully riffs on GTA and much of gaming culture - but Dust might need more of an introduction: created by one man developer Humble Hearts, it's a beautiful side-scrolling action-platformer that compares favourably to Castlevania and Rayman: Origins. "This is a labour of love for a bygone era that will be remembered just as fondly," I wrote in OXM's review.
Saints Row 3 - or Saints Row: The Third, to give the game its proper title - attracted a 9/10 from Log, who describes it as "a glorious example of how much fun there is to be had when you let rip with both barrels".
"Screw reality - ridiculous overblown madness like this is exactly why video games are so great," the review continues. "Thanks for justifying our pastime, Volition." Here's a video of the introductory mission. That's one way to leave an airplane.
updated not bad for free ish lol
