Oh we're getting hyped? Is it OK to get my hopes up?

In a perfect world where licensing doesn't matter (OG Xbox BC):
- Rallisport Challenge 2
- Buffy

I would also accept:
- Any/all Dead or Alive games, across OG and 360 (except 5 for obvious reasons)
- After Burner Climax (they figured out the rights for the recent mobile version, so this should be fine right?)
- Probably anything Sega would be fine actually

I just want more Xbox One X compatible BC games. The games that are BC and "X" enahnaced are pretty incredible visually and it has been a long time since we had some new ones added to that program.

Same. Outside of rare exceptions I don't buy BC games unless they're X Enhanced. Hoping for some good news tomorrow.

With the slow period of the gaming season coming up, I’m expecting some BC enhanced games. Good time to promote that kind of stuff.

like i mentioned a few times

there has to be a reason why Max Payne 3 hasn't hit BC yet

1. Rockstar is working on a remaster
2. Rockstar is working on Max Payne 4
3. Rockstar is sadistic

Yeah I remember ME being used to show off BC itself, but I don't remember seeing anything about it being 4K.

I really hate that you can't use MS account balance for 360 games. Makes no sense...
Yeah, I buy them physically now because I have no other choice.
You just need 360 hardware to do it. If any Era folks need an assist, shoot me a PM. Happy to help.

Wait a second, as GWG stopped giving away X360 games?
Is it ONE x360 game or ONE xbox game per month kind of deal now?
Nope. It is the same as always.

Two Xbox One games. Two Xbox 360 games.

The OG Xbox games technically run on the 360 thru BC there, so they count as 360 titles.

I’ve literally been boycotting this thread to not raise my hopes of a NG2 BC release. But something today pulled me here and now I’m seeing this. I hope its true.

What I still really really want:
- Blur (but an actual re-release would be a lot better, because the multiplayer is dead)
- All Cave shooters like the Deathsmiles and the Dodonpachi series
- Unreal Tournament 3
- Quake 3 and 4
- Worms 2 Armageddon, probably still the finest 2D Worms game on consoles (if you count PC it's the original Worms Armageddon by far)
- If they ever find a way to emulate peripheral games: DJ Hero, Kinect Sports 1 and 2 and Sonic Free Riders in particular
