I don’t usually post this, but Microsoft have outdone themselves for once by offering some great games in their Games with Gold. Thanks to the ever-increasing catalogue of Backwards Compatible games, we’re starting to see some better Xbox 360 titles.

Without further ado, here they are with descriptions and links (click the images) to the store:

outlastIn the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, the asylum has been operating in strict secrecy… until now.

Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

Xbox 360

outlandOutland is a fast-paced, dynamic platformer where the player uses powers of light and dark in an epic journey to save the world from forces of chaos.
