With the second month of Games With Gold on Xbox One upon us, and the service for Xbox 360 still continuing, let's see what Phil "Exclusively on Xbox One" Spencer has in store for us.

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition (Xbox One)

Probably one of the most high-profile games coming out this month, Xbox One owners will get this reference-filled Mexican fest for free - on it's day of release, may I add. Containing the original Guacamelee! in all of it's comicy goodness, as well as new bosses, levels, enemies and abilities, STCE is a fine addition to the Games With Gold lineup. However, since it comes out tomorrow, Gold subscribers won't be able to get it until then.

Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood (Xbox One)

Sure, Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood was free last month, but it'll also be free until the end of this month, so you have no excuse not to play this beautiful puzzler. Said puzzles are logical and hugely challenging, making for a rewarding experience, plus the graphical quality of Max's powers look crisp and detailed. While you may think that it's a kids game because of it's simple dialogue and presentation, it's a really a whole lot more complex, and actually quite underrated.

Gotham City Imposters (Xbox 360)

Ever wanted to play as a fat Batman? Well now you can (Actually, you could for 3 years) with Gotham City Imposters. It's crazy, over-the-top 12 player multiplayer matches are hugely fun, and the ability to use different gadgets (Like glider wings and roller skates) adds a whole sense of verticality and speed to your multiplayer fun. 4 different multiplayer game modes are playable, from the bog-standard Team Deathmatch to the gas-filled goodness of Fumigation, accompanied by single player Challenges. Who needs the real Batman?

Battleblock Theater (Xbox 360)

If there's one thing everyone should know about The Behemoth's games, it's that they're funny as hell. Battleblock Theater is no exception, but the real calling card of the game is it's block-based multiplayer frenzies. With 8 modes to choose from on maps that can sabotage you and your opponents and loads of characters to pick, Battleblock Theater is one of the best couch multiplayer experiences on the Xbox 360.

So that's what all you golden boys and gals will be getting next month, but what do you think about them? Tell us in the comments below!
