Volgarr The Viking Headlines November’s Games With Gold


Thanks to Major Nelson, we now know what games will become free for Xbox LIVE users come November-time, through Games with Gold. Unfortunately, however, the list lacks a defining wow factor and will likely disappoint quite a few folks.

Xbox One users will be gifted another [email protected] game when the calendar turns, that being Volgarr the Viking. A game that was previously released onto Steam back in 2013, it promises a return to the days of yesteryear. That means an easy-to-grasp control scheme, made up of only a couple of buttons, and a very high difficulty level. Masochists need apply.

On the Xbox 360 side of things, there will once again be two games on offer. From November 1st to 15th, Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise will be free-to-download, before Red Faction: Guerilla takes over on the 16th of the month.

Overall, I can’t help but be underwhelmed by this Games With Gold list, which is the same way I feel about PlayStation Plus’ November line-up. Red Faction: Guerilla is a pretty good game, but I already own it. Furthermore, I’m not a masochistic gamer, nor do I have the time to sink into a game like Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise.

Tell us, will you be checking any of these games out?
