It’s the middle of June and you know what that means, more free games from Microsoft! The company’s take on Sony’s popular Playstation Plus program has garnered some fair concerns but this month they kicked it up to celebrate its anniversary. Xbox 360 owners can now download two fine games to their ever-expanding library- Charlie Murder and Super Street Fighter IV.
Charlie Murder is a solo or four person co-op side scrolling beat ‘em up with a dash of RPG elements thrown in. Rock out with your band mates as you gain fans for finishing moves, unearth mythological relics and tat up your avatar all while hoarding all the phat loot. Charlie Murder regularly retails for $9.99 and is rated “M” for Mature.
The other free game this period is the redo I guess to Street Fighter IV. We’ve all heard of Street Fighter, we all sank quarters in the machines back in the day screaming “NEXT!” as we sucked down copious amounts of Mountain Dew and Sour Patch Kids. This is the newest incarnation of the oft-played classic, adding more characters to round out the roster to 39! I mean really, who is going to master all 39 of those blokes? I’m lucky if I remember a combo or two! Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition usually goes for $29.99 and is rated “T” for Teen.
What say you geeks, is Microsoft working towards a better Games with Gold? Can they match the offerings Sony has had with PS Plus? Sound off in the comments after the jump!
