These are the Xbox Games with Gold for November 2014

Microsoft has unveiled the next batch of free games for Xbox LIVE Gold members on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

You’ll have three games to pick from if you have both systems.

Xbox One owners will have Volgarr the Viking as the solitary offering for the month. This game, normally at $9.99, will be available for free from Nov. 1 until Nov. 30. I actually have a close friend who’s been telling me to grab this one for months. He says it’s an incredibly tough old school brawler that’s fair and unforgiving. Sounds right up my alley.

Xbox 360 owners will have two games to play, though they’ll come at separate stages throughout the month. From the 1st until the 15th, gamers can grab Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise. This awesome effort from Rare tasks players with growing a garden to attract crazy Piñata animals. They’ll meet, they’ll breed and you’ll win.

The other game is the underrated Red Faction: Guerrilla, available from the 16th to the 30th. This open world title lets you break down buildings of all sizes on Mars. There are also giant robots, so, that’s cool.

Xbox One owners might be bummed by Volgarr the Viking (I’m not), but 360 gamers have two unique and fun games to choose from. Heck, I’d even argue that games like Volgarrare perfect for this program. It’s a title that I probably wouldn’t have a chance to play otherwise, so I’m looking forward to it.

What do you think of November’s selection?
