Dust: An Elysian Tail & Saints Row The Third are May's Xbox Live 'Games With Gold'

Microsoft has revealed this month's free Xbox 360 'Games With Gold,' and I'm moderately impressed with the selection this time around.

From today, XBL Gold members can download the magnificent Dust: An Elysian Tail, which is a game you ought to own but probably don't. It's one of the best MetroidVania platformers I've played in years, delivers an utterly superb combat system and looks exceptional. Some of you might be put off by the anthropomorphic animal (read: furry) art style, but remember that Crash Bandicoot and Fox McCloud are awesome and so is Dust. Read the review. It's all here.

Anyway, get it while you can, because the fun yet crass Saints Row: The Third replaces Dust on May 16th.

Decent. I don't think I have Dust: An Elysian Tail (it's possible I have it on xbox or steam).
SR3 was okay fun (though not as good as SR2 imo).

They're still not coming remotely close to competing with Sony, on the free games thing, but I'm sure I'll download one or both of those. And then never play them. Like pretty much every single GWG they've given us to date.
