About Kevin Plumtree

Kevin, a Los Angeles area native, has enjoyed gaming as long as he can remember. Lately, he has taken great interest in the narrative aspect of gaming as well as player agency. This is probably because all the literature he had to read during his M.A. program conditioned him to think that way. Nevertheless, he enjoys almost all types of games, especially shooters, strategy, and simulation.

Games with Gold titles revealed for June

By  •  News

The one-year anniversary of the Games with Gold program brings with it the standard two titles each for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, as well as a bonus game for Xbox 360.

The first title for Xbox 360 is Dark Souls. This is an action-RPG for those who enjoy a grueling, teeth-grinding challenge, perhaps even to a masochistic level. The difficulty is legendary, and not for the faint of heart; however, for the grand total of no money, it might be worth it for those on the fence to give Dark Souls a chance and forever be trapped in the mindset of “just one more try.” The game will be free June 1-15.
