Games with Gold: September 2014

Second time with a Halo title

Can you believe it's (almost) September already? Well, it is. And that means more free games for you Xbox Live subscribers out there. This month, you can pick up "Super Time Force" for Xbox One and "Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine" and "Halo: Reach"—yes, "Halo: Reach"—for free.

Here's what's coming soon.

Xbox One: Super Time Force

When: September 1-30
Original price: $14.99

"Super Time Force began with a simple concept: merge side-scrolling classic Contra with a 'time-reversal' hook to create a unique action-shooting experience. Super Time Force throws a lot of enemies and projectiles at you at once, but don't despair – if you mess up, you can press a button to rewind to a point where you can do it all over again, the right way. But that's not all; your 'ghost' (the replay of the playthrough where you just died) will continue to fight alongside you for the new try, turning even your screw-ups into helpful teamwork opportunities. You might say that's mighty neighborly of ... yourself. "

Xbox 360: Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine

When: September 1-15
Original price: $14.99

"Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine, is a team-based, top-down, stealth-puzzle game featuring retro-style graphics and a really interesting plot. You and up to four friends choose characters from among a motley crew of miscreants, and pull off a series of clever heists using each character's special strengths. For example, the Locksmith can open locked doors and safes faster than the other characters, while the Cleaner has the ability to knock out unsuspecting guards. While you can play Monaco alone, teamwork makes the affair a whole lot easier – and a whole lot more fun."

Xbox 360: Halo: Reach

When: September 16-30
Original price: $24.99

Halo: Reach is the 2010 prequel to the Master Chief story line in most of the other Halo games. "Relive the tragic and heroic story of Noble Team, a group of Spartans, who through great sacrifice and courage saved countless lives in the face of impossible odds. The planet Reach is humanity's last line of defense between the encroaching alien alliance known as the Covenant and their ultimate goal, the destruction of Earth. If it falls, humanity will be perched on the brink of destruction."
