Microsoft today announced the Games with Gold for November 2016. If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, you should definitely be cashing in on this every month, as it provides four free games (two Xbox 360 and two Xbox One). All you have to do is claim it during the required dates.
Here are this month's Games with Gold:
Embark on a quest from the gods of rock with heavy metal heroes Axl, Lars, Freddie and Ozzie in Super Dungeon Bros, a fast paced, action focused, rock themed dungeon brawler! Play on your own or with up to 4 friends in couch or online co-op as you raid the deepest dungeons of Rökheim in search of epic loot, hordes of evil undead and the legends of long lost fabled rock stars! Wield wicked weapons with devastating destruction or exploit the punishing puzzles and terrifying traps that will slice and dice foes and bros alike. Fling your friends onto far off ledges and distant trap triggers, hurl your bros at advancing attackers or unleash your tag team tactics with the ultimate bro-op offensive! If really you’re up for the challenge, test your heavy metal in the deadly daily dungeon or master the way of the wicked weekly dungeon and climb to the peak of the global leaderboards.

Pirates! Adventure! Monkeys! Relive the hilarious swashbuckling misadventures of the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood as he attempts to become the most infamous pirate in the Caribbean!

Playing Far Cry® 3 Blood Dragon doesn't require a copy of Far Cry® 3. Far Cry® 3 Blood Dragon is THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place on a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil. Welcome to an 80’s VHS vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando who’s fighting against a cyborg army gone rogue. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies, and save the world. Experience every cliché of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide.
Remember, you still have a week left to grab some of this month's Games with Gold. Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings (Xbox One) and I Am Alive (Xbox 360) are available until the end of the month, and The Escapists (Xbox One) is available until November 15.
The only things that you have to do to get these four games for free every month is to be an Xbox Live Gold member, and claim them between the specified dates. Remember, if you ever cancel your subscription, you get to keep the Xbox 360 games (which are always backward compatible), but you lose the Xbox One games.
