Microsoft has detailed its August line-up for the Games with Gold program. 

Starting on August 1, you can grab Crimson Dragon and Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut for Xbox One. Both of those will last through the whole month. The Xbox 360 games will swap out instead. Motocross Madness will be available August 1-15, followed by Dishonored from August 16-31. This also means this week is your last chance to get Max: The Curse of Brotherhood or Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition. 

Crimson Dragon received mixed reviews despite its Panzer Dragoon legacy, and Strike Suit Zero only did slightly better. Dishonored is the most highly regarded of the bunch, having received critical praise and a spot on some Game of the Year lists when it released in 2012.

      Boy the quality plummeted pretty much immediately. Hell, I heard better things about Lococycle, at least it had dumb FMV clips.

        Doesn't Crimson Dragoon have some shitty IAP nonsense, too?

          Yea, it's basically pay-gated after a certain point.

        What's wrong with Dishonored? I heard good stuff about it.

          It's for the Hobo's Favorite Console, the 360. I only play on modern machines.

            Dishonored has not been released on the new consoles, though. It's a damn good game, even on 360.

        Strike Suit Zero looks somewhat interesting. I also think I want to play Crimson Dragon over Lococycle.

        Strike Suit Zero is pretty awesome.

      Looks like a solid lineup for free.
