Games with Gold and Charlie Murder [UPDATE]

[UPDATE]

It's been reported that Charlie Murder's patch has gone live making a few changes:

*I’m Thorough Achievement – collect all the relics ~ The Jeweled Cross has been removed and the player requires the 54 unique relics to complete this achievement
*Private Matches can no longer be joined by public players
*Players no longer have to fight Circe and Tepes again once they have already been defeated
*Remote players can no longer pause everyone’s game – Just the host 
*Rex heals more viable, Charlie heals no longer as overpowered

So have at it and enjoy the game.


[ORIGINAL POST]

If you haven't heard, this month marks 1 year of Games with Gold on Xbox, if you haven't yet downloaded your games, you should. Xbox is offering two games instead of one. You can pick up Charlie Murder (arcade) and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (also arcade). Both available until the end of the month.

That's not all, you can also pick up Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault if you own an Xbox One. These are also available until the end of the month.

See Xbox Policy Change: What It Means For You for a little more on Max and Halo.

Charlie Murder does currently posses a glitch preventing gamers from earning all the achievements in the game right now, however Ska Studios has presented a patch to fix this to MS for certification, so now we just need to play the waiting game until that get pushed out. I asked both and got these replies:


So as you can see, Ska is quite hopeful that it will release during the free period, but as long as long as they've presented one, I don't care how long it takes.


Charlie Murder, like The Dishwasher series by Ska, is a side scrolling, beat 'em up with RPG elements that lets you play as one of five characters in solo, or online co-op to stop and slay an army of demons. Scary.



Street Fighter is.... well, Street Fighter. If you don't know much about SF, you've been living under a rock since the 90's. There are numerous balance adjustments to the characters as well as a few characters playable immediately, instead of needing to unlock them.
