Any month with a free Conker game in it is a decent month. The character’s Xbox revision/relaunch is among the freebies for subscribers this month.
Who could forget the original Conker’s Bad Fur Day? You know the one; it looked all cute and cuddly, but… wasn’t. No, Rare’s N64 title was raunchy and comedic to the extreme, built around a serviceable 3D platformer.
It wasn’t long before Rare was snatched up though, by Microsoft. And while I don’t think that deal ever really paid off how the Xbox company was thinking, it did result in a re-release of Bad Fur Day. That came in the form of 2005’s Conker: Live and Re-Loaded.
The much-improved title debuted on the original Xbox, though never actually led anywhere. I remember thinking a sequel had to be in the works, but nope. In fact, here we are in 2021, and there still hasn’t been much word about the little foul-mouthed squirrel. Though, fans do have a free copy of the remake to play this month.
Live and Re-Loaded is part of July 2021’s slate of subscriber freebies, along with Midway Arcade Origins, Rock of Ages III, and Planet Alpha.
- Planet Alpha: Available July 1 to 31
- Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break: Available July 16 to August 15
- Conker: Live & Reloaded: Available July 1 to 15
- Midway Arcade Origins: Available July 16 to 31
