Halo 3 Joins Clash Of Heroes For October's Xbox Live Games With Gold

Last week, we shared news that Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is the first of October's free Games with Gold. Today we know that Halo 3 is rounding out the month.

From October 1 through 15, you can download Clash of Heroes at no cost if you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. From October 16 through 31, it's Halo 3. If you happened to miss 2007's Halo 3 (or the three main series titles since then), this seems like a good time to put on the Mjolnir armor.

Our Take
If it weren't for PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection, Microsoft's two games per month would be unequivocally heralded as a great offer. Unfortunately, when one of those titles is six years old, the inevitable comparisons to Sony's five games per month and titles that are far more recent (Battlefield 3, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Saints Row: The Third) aren't flattering. 

People are going to take that opportunity to complain about getting something for free. That isn't good for gamers or Microsoft.
