As part of the “Games With Gold” program announced at E3 in June, I wanted to give you a heads up the next title will be Defense Grid: The Awakening. Normally 800 Microsoft Points, Defense Grid: The Awakening will be free for Xbox LIVE Gold members July 1st through July 15th .

 
 

As a reminder, the program gives Xbox LIVE Gold Members 2 free games to keep each month. A new title will be available the 1st and 16th of each month.

Defense Grid is a cute Tower Defense game if I'm not mistaken, pretty surprisingly good.

Xbox's Games with Gold first freebie is Defense Grid: The Awakening

 Xbox Live's Games for Gold starts with Defense Grid The Awakening
The first game in Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion is Defense Grid: The Awakening. Hidden Path's 2009 XBLA tower defense game is normally priced at 800 MSP, but will be free for Gold subscribers starting today and until July 15.

Games for Gold, unveiled at E3, sees Microsoft make two Xbox 360 games free each month; one on the 1st of the month, and the other on the 16th. The promotion runs through until the end of the year.

Xbox's Major Nelson clarified through Twitter that the two games already announced for the program, namely Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3, aren't this month's pair of offerings. https://twitter.com/majornelson/status/351472618001547265

Assassin's Creed 2 next in Xbox free games lineup
by Alexander Sliwinski  Writer RSS on Jul 3rd 2013 10:00AM

67
 Assassin's Creed 2 free starting July 16 on Xbox Live
Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb confirmed this morning that Assassin's Creed 2 is the next free title in the Xbox "Games With Gold" Program. That means the Italiano assassino romp will be available for all those gratis stabs and requiescat en paces on July 16.

Announced during Microsoft's E3 press conference, the "Games with Gold" program highlighted Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 on stage. After a little clarification, it turned out those two titles wouldn't be the first two games due in July. Defense Grid: The Awakening is currently free, with Ezio's exploits up next. There is no announced window for Halo 3 going free at this time.

Dead Rising 2 and Crackdown are the next games. I'm happy about Dead Rising. I never got around to playing it besides the XBLA game Case Zero.

M&M:CoH is pretty good if you're into puzzle/rpg games. If you dug Puzzle Quest I'd check it out.
