Fantastic! The MS offerings really put PS+ to shame.
Yet again, Games with gold outshines PS plus. Solid offerings

Really don't like their sale tactics at the moment..
Reducing the Telltale bundle then the next week giving some of it away for free, and new games reduced within a month of launch
Makes me suspicious about buying any digital deal (apart from the other region bargains )
Surprised they're giving Saints Row IV, means it's going backwards compatibility even though it's on Xbox One already if I'm not mistaken?
Great month!
I can't stress enough how good The Wolf Among Us is! Best Telltale game out of the lot in my opinion and i'm a massive Borderlands fan

Will teach me for buying sunset overdrive ages ago and leaving on my backlog
This makes me glad I just bought an Xbox
One of the best Games with Gold lineups I've seen.

I still think March's Playstation Plus lineup edges it though...

hows that, the telltale bundle is always on sale. we get some amazing stuff that puts PS plus to shame and still people will find something to complain about, hell they could give GTA V and fallout next month and people would still complain. had a feeling the way sunset kept dropping it would go to GWG.

Great selection. Sunset Overdrive is an excellent game and have wanted to play Wolf Among us for quite some time
I've literally only just bought Sunset Overdrive again. Damn

Sony are similar. It does get annoying...

The Telltale bundle isn't always on sale.
It has very recently been on sale and now they are giving part of it away free.
That would be annoying for people that have just bought it.
I didn't mention anything about PS Plus, why did you?

Yeah, it is surprising.

Thanks for the info though TC.
Very good month!
Wow, Wolf Among Us I bought as part of Telltale and they really brought me back to 1990s gaming in a brilliant way.
Sunset Overdrive for free finally, epic.....suddenly the lack of differences between the two consoles doesn't seem so annoying, not when I get this for free on my Xbox.

Also yey, Dead Space, another game like Aliens that takes me forever to complete (because it's intense). We all need a few of those.

Could be a good month for PS+ then? pfft.
anyone any idea when sony will tell us what "amazing" deals they have for april, if its anything like the last couple of months it will at least be good for a laugh and give them their due i have no need for plus for months now. so thats saved me some money

so it would be a save bet that the rest of the dead space games wil be coming to BC

Due today.
Well, I already own both The Wolf Among Us and Sunset Overdrive, but I can't deny that that's a soundly superb set for the coming month!
So I've already got Sunset Overdrive on disc - do i need to uninstall this and then download the "free" version so I can then go pass my disc version onto CEX? Will I lose any progress?
Wow what a great month.
Enjoy xboxers.

Due today.


I suspect that it may end up being next Thursday, as the first Tuesday of April won't be until the 5th. We'll see before too long, though!
Wow what a great selection, already own Sunset Overdrive on Disc, but will be nice to have a Digital Version.
Probably the best GwG offerings to date. I own Wolf and Sunset but would highly recommend both to anyone!

This is the problem when they offer retail/AAA games though.
Already seeing people posting they already have the two One offerings.
Wouldn't you rather have something new/different/something you haven't played?

Still a great month though. Wolf Amongst Us is excellent.

I'm doing the same thing. lol. But yeah I think we may need to delete it as ours would require reading a disc so we may need to download the proper digital version. No idea about the save file but I haven't gotten far in mine so I wouldn't mind starting over. I'm sure it will be grand
Looking forward to Wolf Among Us. I was also tempted to pick up Sunset when it dropped to under nine quid recently so it's a good month for me!
