I think you’ll agree with me that this month’s games with gold aren’t as strong of a contender as last month’s games with gold. Still though, I will certainly have a look at some of this titles… I already own Grid 2 which does defeat the purpose slightly, but I’m still very happy with my Xbox Gold subscription!
