Games With Gold Gets Refreshed Today With Two Free Games

Let's fight, shall we?

What's better than getting a free game? TWO free games, of course!

Microsoft has refreshed Games With Gold on Xbox 360 today, replacing the punishing and challenging Dark Souls with two brawlers — Charlie Murder and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

Charlie Murder is a 4 player beat-em-up with a punk rock aesthetic, injected with clever RPG elements. In our review, we awarded it a good score, and called it "an exhilarating, memorable ride that may be hard to forget for quite some time."

With Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition comes a pretty cool bonus. You can nab this one for free, then upgrade to Ultra Street Fighter IV for just $14.99. The updated Ultra version packs in new characters, stages and balance improvements. Not a bad deal at all.

Games With Gold also came to Xbox One this month where it unlocked Halo: Spartan Assault and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood which are both still available to download. Microsoft has yet to reveal what freebies we'll be getting in July, but we should be hearing from them real soon.

Once again, I highly recommend downloading Charlie Murder — especially if you're into couch co-op. It's a little too stop-and-go at times, but once you learn your way around the interface and menus, it's a pretty great beat-'em-up.

If I just got a 360 & complimentary 1-month gold, can I still download these? Or do I need certain amount of time before?

I think you get GwG on any paid subscription, be it 1-month etc.. I'm not sure about the complimentary 1 month with console purchase. It's my understanding that any Gold trials be they 1 day, 2 day etc. aren't eligible.

I wish 360 had received Spartan Assault too. As it is this is my first time playing any version of SFIV and I'm surprised and slightly underwhelmed and confused. Maybe it's just the poor Xbox 360 controller. Give me a good old SNES controller for SF games any day!
