The lights are on
Microsoft has announced the two titles to be offered at no additional charge to Xbox Live Gold members. The offerings include the undead and tiny toys.
From February 1 through 15, Deep Silver’s Dead Island will be available for Xbox Live Gold members to download. The second half of the month will feature Signal Studios’ Toy Soldiers: Cold War.
Once downloaded, Xbox Games with Gold are yours even if you cancel your subscription. As a reminder, this is your last day to download Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Our TakeIf you’re going to play Dead Island (and you should if you haven’t), I strongly suggest the mobile map app. It was one of the first second-screen experiences and a great way to track collectibles.
Toy Soldiers: Cold War is an extremely amusing RTS that moves the series from a World War I setting to the '80s. I can’t vouch for the upcoming Rambo game, but playing as the bandana-wearing bada** is a lot of fun here.
