Magic 2013 - I liked Magic 2012 quite a bit so I might get around to this. It's a very accurate representation of the game, and the card game is great, but the interface isn't the best. It just plays a lot slower than a face to face game would.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas - Not for me. I played the first level, and it seems well made. Just not into military shooters.
Might Magic: Clash of Heroes - This is a pretty great game. I have it for the DS, and I'm not too keen on starting it over, but it's nice to have just the same.
Halo 3 - Great game, I have it, nice to add to my digital collection. Will probably never play it again.
A World of Keflings - This is a charming, simple strategy game that I enjoy playing with my 7 year old. Would get dull on it's own. But for some reason I get a kick out of playing these "Avatar Famestar(?)" games with my kids.
Iron Brigade - Fun and interesting, but didn't get too far into it. I think my tolerance for these tower defense games may just be low, we'll see what happens with Dungeon Defenders.
Gears of War - Same as Halo 3, loved it, probably never play it.
Shoot Many Robots - Didn't look good, didn't touch.
Sleeping Dogs - Didn't touch, have heard good things about it, but again not my genre.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - Haven't touched, but the demo did interest me. Maybe I can get my wife to play.
Dead Island - Didn't touch.
Toy Soldiers: Cold War - Haven't played but interested. Probably falls into the action / tower defense genre now?
Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution - Played two awesome games of this, confirming Civ is great and this is a decent version (if somewhat stripped down). Probably don't need to play anymore. I have Civ V sitting unplayed on my PC.
Dungeon Defenders - I got pretty hooked on this over the weekend. Seemed pretty tough to solo, so I'm looking forward to playing multiplayer with the family.
I should also mention some free to play games that came out on the 360 recently.
Ascend: Hand of Kul - I really liked this. I played though the story and still dip in occasionally to see what's up. It's quite stripped down, but I find what's there to be appealing. I think maybe the grind is starting to kick in as I've gotten up in level, so I don't think I'll be playing this as my main entertainment, but as an occasional distraction I do like it. It's earned it's place in my 120 gig hard drive.
World of Tanks - This reminds me so much of Mech Warrior Online. I really prefer this more slow paced, one life, counter strike style multiplayer game. I'm not super into tanks though. I'll probably keep it around.
So, I'm still pleased with Games with Gold. More hits and misses still, or at least entertaining distractions.
Kudos to Microsoft then, for keeping me so engaged with my 360. Not really feeling any desire to upgrade to the Xbox One.
