Welcome to 2015! Not yet, but Microsoft is getting you ready for the new year at least. Their Games with Gold promotion for XBOX Live Gold subscribers has been pretty awesome this year, but the choices for January are kind of…odd. Of the 3 games, I’ve only heard of The Witcher 2 and it for Xbox 360 (mine gets no love anymore). My assumption is with the Halo Master Chief Collection giving everyone problems and the freebies from that probably costing quite bit, they went a little light on us.

Here’s next month’s Games with Gold!

Xbox One

D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die

A time traveling detective has to solve his wife’s murder before he can prevent it. Use his supernatural ability to “dive” into the world of the living past by touching artifacts called “mementos” to find out the truth behind his wife’s death.
