Friendly reminder: Go get yo' free games on Xbox Live! photo
Friendly reminder: Go get yo' free games on Xbox Live!
by Brett Makedonski

With the beginning of a new month, it's time that we all flip our calendars from that picture of an adorable kitten rolling around in the leaves to that picture of an adorable kitten sitting in a pumpkin. It's also time that Xbox Live Gold members should go ahead and swoop on their free games.

As a quick reminder, DICE's highly praised Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is available until October 15 on Xbox 360. On Xbox One, newly released indie cooperative platformer Chariot is free all month long. Chariot's one that you won't want to pass up, especially if you have a partner to sit on the couch and work through it with.

Xbox Live Gold subscribers would be remiss to pass these up. Go ahead and put on your Uggs, froth your pumpkin spice lattes, and queue up some videogames to play.

Hearthstone's next expansion is just cards, will have over 100 of them

Hearthstone is still chugging, and I had a blast with its Curse of Naxxramas expansion. It added a decent amount of cards to the game (30), and some single player content that kept me busy for quite a while. The next exp...

Matador is now Brigador, still a cool looking mech shooter

I decided to do some checking on Matador, which won me over early this year. This proved confusing, briefly, as some legal issues have pushed the isometric mech shooter to be renamed Brigador. I kind of miss the name, but al...
