Xbox owners have had to look at the Playstation with a bit of jealousy as they kept getting more than three games as part of PS Plus. Well this is no April Fools joke, Games With Gold is giving Xbox owners a total of six games for the month of April. Xbox One owners will get Pool Nation FX and Child of Light, available for free all month. Xbox 360 owners get a great set of games, starting with Gears of War: Judgement and Terraria. These two games will be available for free from April 1st to the 15th. Starting on the 16th, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will be free for the rest of the month. After a great lineup of games last month, the games for April are another set of great titles. Now would be a good time to become a gold member if you are not already.
In the world of video games today, there seems to be a big market towards remastered editions of games. Slap HD visuals on a game, release it for $50 and call it a day. Thanks to some dedicated modders, Half-Life 2 is getting a "remastering" of sorts, for free. A trailer above showcases some of the great visual effects that have been added to the game. This mod to the 11 year old game has been sanctioned and supported by Valve, so there should be no reason to worry about this update breaking the game. While the mod is free, you will need to own Half-Life 2 in order to enjoy this new update to the game.
