Portal Knights - Xbox One, from August 1st to 31st Override: Mech City Brawl - Xbox One, from August 16th to September 15th MX Unleashed - Xbox One in backward compatibility, from August 1st to 15th Red Faction 2 - Xbox One in backward compatibility, from 16 to 31 August In front of the free games lineup scheduled for August 2020 in the Games with Gold program, we can only reiterate what we have been repeating for several months now: although the offer of free games is always positive, however, it is clear that the initiative needs a shake-up, modifying its structure completely or trying to increase the quality of the offer to continue to maintain it as a significant element of benefit for subscribers. Also for the next month we are faced with a list of games that is not exactly evil but which is difficult to consider really significant, especially when compared with the offer that, at the same time, characterizes the competition on PS Plus.




As we have said, it's hard to complain in general of something that is actually given (albeit within a system of subscription) but the offer from a few months to this part languishes in a disturbing compared to the quality that characterized the program up to some time ago. There are, however, interesting games and also at this discharge, particularly with Portal Knights (which is still a title that is particularly palatable and also with Override: Mech City Brawl , while the other two titles have mainly historical value, at this point, being from the first Xbox, on which, however, do not represent their own masterpieces in no time. In short, the fact is that we gladly accept this gift but also the possible reorganization of the system of Xbox Live, hope for even a relaunch of the program or its absorption the definitive Xbox Game Pass, if this could lead to even of the economic benefits to the users. On the other hand, the rumors about the possible disappearance of the Xbox Live Gold begin to be persistent at this point.



Portal Knights - Xbox One, from 1 to 31 August

In the vast universe of survival, Portal Knights is one of the titles that succeeded in the enterprise to emerge on different platforms, what really is not a small especially for a project semi-independently. It is a game belonging to the host of titles that offer survival in an open environment, sandbox-type, with characterization faceta and almost cartoony, and a certain insistence on gathering resources and crafting. The model is a paradigm in this case is of course Minecraft , but among the many clones that have tried to reproduce the historical characteristics of the game Mojang is to say that Portal Knights has proven to be one of the most original and well-characterized. The formula used by Keen Games is based on the recovery of some of the features more properly belonging to the role-playing game, which fell within a structure very close to Minecraft but that allows you to experience the game from other points of view the details, such as warriors, archers, mages, healers, with some attention to the combat system. In short, Portal Kinghts can't be considered a simple clone, but a title with a personality of its own, not very effective, but can offer you a experience of the particular game, more in the style of Dragon Quest Builders of Minecraft.

motocross has lost a lot of visibility in the field of gaming and, therefore, may be interesting to go to rehashing the past with MX Unleashed is probably one of the best exponents of the racing game based, motocross released in the last couple of decades. It is a game of the first Xbox , originally released in 2004, so don't expect major refinements in technology, and yet the fun that flowed from the era has remained largely intact, the son of an era in which games like these could represent the set of productions also high-profile in the lineup of the console. Developed by Rainbow Studios and published by THQ, the names really of the times, MX Unleashed, he was distinguished at the time for the controls very intuitive and responsive, a good design of the circuits and the presence of various game modes, from single player to multiplayer, with up to the races of the mold as different as the circuits in the freestyle in which to perform, especially in aerial acrobatics, and various other disciplines of alternative, alongside the classic speed race.

it Is a pity that the Red Faction series is a bit lost in these years, because the sci-fi world set up for the first few chapters was very interesting and opened up to the possibility considerable.

The protagonist, Alias, is a super-soldier who takes part in the rebellion of the peoples of the Commonwealth martian against the dictator Victor Sopot, attacking the latter's army and its fortresses, through various missions. One of the main features of Red Faction 2 is the opportunity to interact with the scenario by destroying or modifying some elements like terrain and structures, through the engine Geo-Mod used for the construction of the game. Because of this feature, Red Faction 2 was quite revolutionary at the time and has actually been ahead of the times with regard to the interaction with environments inside of a first-person shooter, making it still interesting today.
