Run! Rock! Retro! In July 2021’s Game with Gold

It’s time for more Games with Gold! As reported on Xbox Wire, the games inbound for July are:

  • Planet Alpha (Xbox, Jul 1-31)
  • Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break (Xbox, Jul 16-Aug 15)
  • Conker: Live & Reloaded (Xbox BC, July 1-15)
  • Midway Arcade Origins (Xbox 360 BC, Jul 16-31)

Planet Alpha looks mighty pretty and follows on nicely from last month’s The King’s Bird with more platforming action. I’m curious about Rock of Ages 3 and the idea of spending a little time creating courses to then smash up afterwards… makes me think back to building block towers just to let my son gleefully destroy them! 🙂

The classic end of this month is probably where I’m really at purely for the nostalgia valueit provides. It’s a bit of a shame that original Xbox games no longer support Xbox Live because Conker was one of those games I wished I had a chance to try out at the time. Thankfully the campaign is all there so I do get an opportunity to at least see the enhanced version of the N64 game which was previously included in Rare Replay. I had a lot of retro game compilations on the original Xbox including Midway Arcade Treasures so picking up what amounts to the 360 version is not a bad deal for me.
