Games With Gold – October 2017

October’s Games With Gold have been announced, and to me, it is a very weak month. I don’t know if they are getting ready for a mega month, or they are running out of things to give away for free.

Each XBOX One game is available for a full month, and each XBOX 360 game, playable through Backward Compatibility, is available for half a month.
