Games With Gold August releases include Forza Horizon 2, For Honour

No, that's not a typo. Ubisoft let America have it spell the game's name wrong and we're all just going to have to live with it.

It's that time of the month again, and like clockwork (if clockwork can sway by the odd day or two), Major Nelson has updated all XBox Gold members on what they can expect to play for 'free' this August.

As personal judgement, this one is almost quintessentially middle-of-the-road. There's nothing truly exciting here, but nothing that isn't at least pretty good, either. For Honour is the most recent title on there, with Forza Horizon 2 now well... kind of old, but well timed to drum up interest in the not-far-off Horizon 4.

The 360 releases include Epic Mickey 2, a game that could have been exciting but ended up being a bit wet, really, and Dead Space 3, a game that could have been exceptional, but lost track of the defining core of the series. Actually, I take that back, it's loud and stupid enough in just the right way that it's actually a pretty fun action game. Just don't go in expecting some Dead Space-arse Dead Space.
