Its another month, and another chance to grab some games with your Xbox Live Gold subscription thanks to Games With Gold. This month Microsoft is offering another four games for you, and you'll be able to grab them starting yesterday.

The first Xbox One game you can grab is Hitman: The Complete First Season. This stealth game has you playing as Agent 47 and sneaking your way around populated locations to assassinate a specific target. It's also worth noting that you can grab this game, then download the free starter pack of Hitman 2 and get to play all of the levels with the new mechanics introduced in the sequel, making this an even better deal. You can grab Hitman today, and it'll be available until September 30th. You can read our review of it if you want to know more.

The other Xbox One game is We Were Here, a co-op puzzle game. You'll be teaming up with a second player and solving puzzles to help escape from a mysterious castle. The only help you have, besides each other's brains, is a walkie-talkie with a mysterious man on the other end. Your goal is going to be to get out of this castle, using your buddies help to do so. You can grab We Were Here starting on September 16th up until October 15th.

For Xbox 360 players, or Xbox One backwards compatibility users, the first game you'll be getting is Earth Defense Force 2025. The game that made the series popular in America, this goofy third person shooter sees you using weird weapons to take on giant swarms of space ants. Playing like a third person shooter version of the Dynasty Warriors series, you'll gun down hundreds of ants, possibly with a co-op buddy, and accidentally destroy the city you're trying to save in the process. You can grab the game until September 15th.

The second Xbox 360 game is Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which will be available from September 16th until the 30th. Featuring a massive 59 playable characters, you'll be teaming up to give the smack down in 2v2 3D battles. More importantly, it has a song written by Snoop Dogg about Tekken, and features a stage where he sits on his throne watching you fight for his amusement. Gotta love the Snoop.
