Games with Gold is celebrating Halloween with Friday the 13th

(And some seemingly random games)

We’ve had consistently great things to say about Xbox Game Pass these past several months, but when it comes to Games with Gold, well, things tend to get a little funkier. The October 2019 lineup is no exception. It’s jarring to see a Halloween staple like Friday the 13th: The Game sit beside Disney’s Bolt.

Then there’s Tembo the Badass Elephant  one of the rare non-Pokémon curiosities out of Game Freak and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, a game that tried but fell short of Team Ninja’s past home runs.

There’s fun to be had, but talk about an uneven bunch.

Games with Gold for October 2019 (Xbox One)

  • Tembo the Badass Elephant from October 1 to October 31
  • Friday the 13th: The Game from October 16 to November 15

Games with Gold for October 2019 (Xbox One + Xbox 360)

  • Disney Bolt from October 1 to October 15
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge from October 16 to October 31

Are you going to bother with any of these, or do you have more pressing games to play?
