Okay, Microsoft. I appreciate your attempt to give your Xbox Live Gold members a reward for being gold members. You are trying to placate to the masses' outcry that Sony's PlayStation Plus service is leaps and bounds above what Microsoft offers, thanks in part to the handfuls of free games that PS+ subscribers get every month. Sure, Sony started giving away games a while ago, as an attempt to catch up with Xbox 360's online community, and while it was slow to start out with, they eventually revved up the service and started giving away tons of awesome games.
So Microsoft started giving away free games too, but unfortunately, they are few and far between, and several years old.
Wait. Have I written this before? I feel like I said the exact same stuff with the last free Xbox Live game I wrote about. I guess I could go back and check, but I don't even remember what game it was, if that tells you anything about how interested I am in their service. I guess when it feels like Microsoft doesn't even care about what they are putting out, I shouldn't bother to care either.
Anyway, the latest addition to the free game library is Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes. I had never even heard of this game before, and definitely had no idea it was a full on series. Buy hey, if there is one good thing about this year of gaming I'm going through, it is discovering new games or trying franchises that I never touched before.
So this game is interesting. It's a weird cross between puzzle games and RPGs, in a unique way I've never seen before. It seems and feels overwhelming, but with a little patience, you can grasp the core concepts. Unfortunately, I didn't have the patience needed to get deep into the game or the experience. I'm not sure if it was the puzzle aspect, the RPG aspect, the entire game itself, my lack of knowledge of the universe it takes place in, or just my complete disinterest in everything Xbox 360 these days. Whatever it was, though, I probably didn't gibe the game a fair shake, but in all honesty, it is and never will be the type of game I would invest time in to.
I know this bums out all the Xbox supporters out there, but I just don't care about the console at all anymore. Hopefully the Xbox One will rejuvenate my passion for Microsoft like I once had. Of course, they have to try as well.
