The controls on Crimson Dragon are horrendous. I'm glad I didn't waste any money on it. The graphics are decent at least.

I downloaded it, played thru the first level and had zero desire to continue. The controls (left stick to move the dragon and right stick to move the targeting reticle) are cumbersome and headache inducing, almost like trying to rub your belly and pat your head at the same time.

Graphically, I was personally underwhelmed as the saturated colors, coarse graphics and necessity to focus on the location of the reticle often made it hard for me to make out the visuals.

This one will probably get deleted from the hard drive pretty quickly I think.

As already mentioned in the master Xbox One thread, here is September's Games with Gold Announcement:

"Coming up in September, Xbox Live Gold members can look forward to three new free games on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Super Time Force is coming to Games with Gold on Xbox One as a free download, replacing Strike Suit Zero (so grab it now if you haven’t already). Crimson Dragon will continue to be available for Xbox Live Gold members as a free download for Xbox One.


On Xbox 360, starting Monday, September 1st, Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine (normally US $14.99) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through September 15th.

Then, on September 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download Halo: Reach (normally US $24.99) for free through September 30th."


Monaco is a fun game, especially in co-op. Guess I'll download Reach just so I have a digital copy. Super Time Force will be the only 'new' game for me.

I am never buying a $15 to $20 game again. When I do they come to Games with Gold! Super Time Force is pretty amazing.

Little bit disappointing I literally just purchased worms last week, it was way overpriced at 25, it was tough to suck it up for my kid just spending that much on worms I think worms for xbox 360 was 14.99, i would have never guessed an arcade game that costly would go on games for gold, and now its free.

Talked to microsoft about maybe giving me a free month or two or live, while they said they understand my frustration, and they are sorry, i rolled the dice on the purchase and its the way it is.

Suffice to say though im going to be a bit hesitant purchasing overly priced live games in the future, i feel like i just threw away 25 dollars. Lesson learned.

it happens.

I felt kind of burned that I bought Fibbage for $8 and then a month later, they release an updated Fibbage with more questions and a bunch more games for $25. If I knew that it would come out with more questions rather than an additional DLC, I would've waited for the $25 package. But we don't have the powers to see the future...
