Xbox Games with Gold giving Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Cold War in February

Microsoft has revealed the pair of games coming free to Xbox Live Gold members in February, namely action-tower defense Toy Soldiers: Cold War and Techland's FPS action-RPG Dead Island. They're a fair enough pair of games, but, well, February's PlayStation Plus lineup includes Metro: Last Light, Payday 2, and Outlast.

Dead Island will arrive on February 1, Microsoft's Larry 'Major Nelson' Hryb revealed on his blog, then Toy Soldiers: Cold War will follow on February 16.

Dead Island usually costs $19.99 to download on Xbox 360, though I can't help but point out that the Game of the Year Edition, which also includes the game's two $10 DLC packs, is only $14.99 on disc from Amazon. Toy Soldier: Cold War costs $14.99.
