Microsoft has announced the two Xbox Live Games with Gold for May. As usual, it’s a pairing of one digital and one retail release.

For the first half of the month (May 1 - 15), Xbox Live Gold members can download Dust: An Elysian Tale. It’s a side-scrolling game in the Metroid vein featuring an anthropomorphic rabbit, a fairy, and a talking sword. 

The second half of the month (May 16 - 31) brings Saints Row: The Third. This entry marked a firm change in the franchise to differentiate it from the Grand Theft Auto series.

Our Take
Saints Row: The Third salvages this month a bit, but it’s a three year old game. Good on Deep Silver for scoring another spot on Games with Gold, because this is likely to move some DLC for the publisher. My question: where are the Xbox One games?
