I sorta want to play Mercenaries again. I remember the game being pretty shitty, but the environment was fun to destroy.

Wow, they're including ORIGINAL Xbox games now? I know I'm being a bit hypocritical here, because I always tag the 360 Games with Gold and never ever play them, but still, that decision strikes me as supremely lame. Also, I found it funny how "Mercenaries" was marked a 360 title throughout the video, including a fake packshot with the 360 logo and 4:3 footage stretched to 16:9, before the real icon was shown at the very end. :rolleyes:

Never Alone is a $19.99 game? Never Alone is a game I picked up for $2.99 and felt I overpaid by $19.99. So bad it ruined a platformer kick I had been genuinely enjoying at that time, if I were Microsoft I wouldn't want my console subscription service tied to its non-level of quality.

Well, the game was already free with PlayStation Plus at one point. Since the current consensus is that Sony can do no wrong, it makes sense for Microsoft to include it in Games with Gold as well. :cool:

To me, "Never Alone" is kinda like "Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons", only uglier. At least, it didn't freeze on me (polar puns are the best!) like Brothers did on the 360. I didn't like either game much, but slogged through both of them.

the best game there is Mercenaries. I'll have to watch and see if it has any graphical upgrades, but that game holds a lot of great memories. Fucking Mercenaries, y'know? 2005 or so? I actually bought never alone back when it came out and the only thing alone around here is the playerbase for that game. Boring as hell.

The only thing that stuck to me was the fact that Mercenaries is an Xbox Original. I was hoping some of those would pop up in here at some point. Overall this month is a complete meh. No interest in any of those.
