I’ll admit that I wasn’t that thrilled with the Xbox Live March Games with Gold lineup. The highlight of March was pretty much Borderlands. I was at least hoping that Borderlands 2 would have then also made it to Backwards Compatibility but that has not surfaced yet. April is another story with a pretty good lineup of four worthy games that finally includes Sunset Overdrive! I had played Sunset Overdrive pre launch but never ended up picking the game up. I still have to wait till mid month but I’m very excited to be able to jump back into this game and hopefully add it to the weekly gaming nights with the guys, especially since it’s a lot easier to convince 6 or 7 people to pick up a Free game!
This month also includes another Telltale Games series game to go with The Walking Dead which was offered a few months back and the two Xbox 360 games are pretty awesome, just Saints Row IV is worth it.
Keep in mind that even if you don’t own an Xbox One yet you can still grab these Free games on your Xbox 360 and now if you don’t have an Xbox 360 you can now grab the Xbox 360 games (and all backward compatible games) on the Xbox One store as well.
Check out the information below on when you can pickup this months Xbox Live Games with Gold games.
On Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download The Wolf Among Us ($24.99 ERP) for free during the month of April. Sunset Overdrive ($29.99 ERP) will be available as a free download from April 16th to May15th.

Keep in mind that all Xbox Games with Gold on Xbox 360 since November are available through backwards compatibility on Xbox One as will all future Games with Gold. You are now able to purchase all Xbox 360 Games with Gold through the Xbox One store on the Xbox One console as well!
If you’re an Xbox Gold Member make sure to get the most out of your subscription every month with up to 4 Free games a month. Xbox One games are yours as long as you keep your Gold membership active but Xbox 360 games are yours to keep even if you cancel your Gold membership, but really for $60 a year there’s no better value anywhere.
