Guardian of Light's free now for Xbox Live Gold members photo
Guardian of Light's free now for Xbox Live Gold members
by Brett Makedonski

It's time for another predictable but helpful bi-weekly reminder that a new game is free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. This time, it's 2010's Summer of Arcade title Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Of course, this offer won't be on the table once February rolls around.

The twin-stick shooter is held in high regard by most, especially fans of co-op play. Go ahead and give this one a download if you meet that whole "don't already own it and an Xbox Live Gold member" criteria. The worst that can happen is that you just feel the need to hit that delete button.

Tomb Raider comes to Mac later this year

While we're a bit light on details, we do know that Feral Interactive are bringing Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider to Mac later this year. They say to expect a mini-site soon for the game, which likely means that they're almost done with it.  I assume this trailer is Mac footage.
