This Thanksgiving, be thankful for these games — well, some of them

The next set of Games With Gold for Xbox Live members arrives next Tuesday, Nov. 1, and November's foursome leaves something to be desired. Four games, two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360, are on offer through the end of the month, from an old-school adventure game to a game launching in time for the promotion.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon lead the Xbox 360 giveaways. Each one is backward compatible with Xbox One, like all recent Xbox 360 titles in the Games With Gold line-up. The former is an overhaul of a beloved '90s classic, while the latter is an homage to all things '80s and garish, making for an interesting pairing. Monkey Island is available from Nov. 1-15, while Blood Dragon is up for grabs Nov. 16-30.

On Xbox One are Super Dungeon Bros., a local multiplayer game that will launch this November, just in time for the giveaway. Xbox Live subscribers can grab it all month, while the mystery adventure game Murdered: Soul Suspect will also be available to download from Nov. 16-Dec. 15.

It's not the most exciting month, although the Xbox 360 games should delight some diehards. A handful of titles from October's promotion remain available in the meantime, including MX vs. ATV Reflex and The Escapists.
