Microsoft has revealed the four titles that’ll be joining Xbox Games With Gold this October, including Resident Evil Code: Veronica X.
Yes, we’ve always thought that colon should come after Resident Evil but we’re not going to bin this side-entry just for that. There are four games joining Games With Gold this month, Veronica included, available to all Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
The titles arriving this month are:
- Aaero: Available October 1 to 31
- Hover: Available October 16 to November 15
- Castlevania: Harmony of Despair: Available October 1 to 15
- Resident Evil Code: Veronica X: Available October 16 to 31
Resident Evil Code: Veronica X is well worth playing and sports a boss who made our Best Resident Evil Bosses of All Time list although, admittedly, that last was created before Lady Dimitrescu reared her lofty head. It’s not technically a main Resident Evil game but, minus the moths, which we hate with a vengeance, it’s well worth playing, especially if you crave every scrap of Resi lore.
We also gave Aaero a 7 out of 10 when we reviewed it; we had fun with it, but found it was a game of two halves, one less impressive than the other. Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is interesting but it’s really focused on multiplayer shenanigans, it’s not on a par with any of the Castlevania Advance games. Harmony of Despair and Code Veronica are both Xbox 360 games but are playable through the Xbox One, Xbox One X and Xbox Series X|S’s backwards compatibility.
Sony has yet to announce October’s PlayStation Plus games, though they’ve apparently leaked; we’ll let you know when they’ve been officially confirmed.
