Normal price: $9.99

Xbox 360

This month, Xbox 360 users will get the following three games available for free:

Dark Souls
Available: June 1-15
Normal price: $19.99
Original release: 2011

"Dark Souls is perhaps most famous for its difficulty, but it is also, without question, among the greatest and most awe-inspiring games of its generation. Elegant in design, challenging in presentation and more than a little mysterious, Dark Souls will take you on a tour de force of what action-role-playing can (and should) be about. If you ever wanted to jump into one of this generation's most beloved franchises, now's the perfect time."

Charlie Murder
Available: June 16-30
Normal price: $9.99
Original release: 2013

"Charlie Murder is a classic, side-scrolling beat-'em-up in which you take on the role of the title character or one of his stalwart band mates, as they try to save the world from an impending zombie apocalypse. And yes, they will also rock out quite a bit at the same time. A cartoon-like aesthetic, non-stop action and a dash of dark humor combine to make Charlie Murder fun for solo or up to four-player cooperative head-bashing."

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
Available: June 16-30
Normal price: $29.99
Original release: 2010

Capcom's Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is described as the one-year Games with Gold anniversary bonus. "Yes, it's Street Fighter and chances are you've probably played it, in some form or another, at least once in your life. And if not, you're missing out on perhaps the most well-known and tightly balanced fighting game franchise ever made. This upgrade to the original Street Fighter IV brings the playable roster up to a whopping 39 characters, and features a decked-out online tournament mode, a team battle mode for up to eight players, and the option to save and share replays of your best (or worst) matches."
