Microsoft reveals the four free games for August's Games with Gold

Strike Suit Zero: Directors Cut

Microsoft's 'Games with Gold' program gives free games to subscribers of its Xbox Live Gold tier for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. For the month of August, Microsoft will be giving Strike Suit Zero: Directors Cut and Crimson Dragon on the Xbox One and Dishonored and Motocross Madness on the Xbox 360.

Crimson Dragon was an Xbox One launch title and is the spiritual successor to Panzer Dragoon Saga. The game is a fast paced rail shooter that takes place in a fantasy world and can be played with up to three other people.

Strike Suite Zero was born from a Kickstarter campaign and allows you take on the role of a pilot and fight in space battles. The game has small and large battles and should appease your inner fighter-pilot.

Both Xbox One games are available from August 1-31st while the Xbox 360 games are split between the first 15 days and the last 15 days of the month.

From August 1-15th, you can download Motocross Madness, which is your classic dirt-track racer with the added ability to perform tricks and run through obstacle courses. During the second half of the month, you'll be able to grab Dishonored, which is an award-winning steampunk stealth/action title.

August kicks off this Friday, so set a reminder for later this week so you can download these previously premium games for free.

Was gonna get Crimson Dragon when they put it on offer as GwG started on Xbox One, now I don't have to, it's gonna be free! Motocross Madness is a really fun little game, too. Strike Suit Zero brings back memories of the old Freelancer days, which I still have installed on this computer... :)

Oh good I will pick these games up. I have not yet had time to play Guacamole yet either, but the Max game was really fun and I probably would not have checked it out if it wasn't for Games with Gold.

Max Curse of Brotherhood was a great game, a free easy 100% 1000GS if you follow a walkthrough to not miss any collectibles. Didn't think I'd like it, but did, immensely ;)

Well I am up to 900G, still have to do the sliding escape and defeat Mustacho without dying.

I've really enjoyed Guacamele. The amount of 'moves' you can do by the late stages of the game, keep it very entertaining.

They are quite tricky. The Mustacho one follows a pattern, keep trying it, you'll get it :) The sliding escape one is a LOT easier. Personally I struggled with the Death By Lava achievement, having to escape up all those ladders and whatnot with lava relentlessly chasing me, took about 13 tries!

Well that's funny because I got the death by lava on my first try but I got frustrated with the sliding level and haven't gotten back around to it yet. Maybe this weekend.

It's pretty good on the PC. Tried playing it with a 360 pad at some point, better than the mouse and keyboard imo. Still, it looks pretty good (it's UE3) on PC, not sure how that will translate to the 360 though.
