Are you a cheapskate and a late-adopter to gaming? Did you ears just perk up?

As announced on Major Nelson’s blog, this month’s “Free Games With Gold” is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (starting TODAY until October 15th!) and Darksiders II (starting October 16th-October 31st) for X-Box 360.

X-Box One is getting Chariot, an ID@XBOX game. So congratulations for being an early adopter, XBone users. Womp womp.

Here are some details on both via XBL’s official site. Click the title for a direct link to download.
