    Wow, I'm surprised more came out this late in the year. Wish one of these was Games with Gold instead of the OG Xbox game.

    Nice. Fakeout with the 'no BC games on sale'. I honestly thought we'd be done with BC announcements for the year after last week.

    Doubt I'd buy Duke Nukem or XCOM for now since they're on sale so often and the DLC never is, but might pick up The Darkness since this is the first sale it's had in years.

    So I guess that's why they're on sale this week

    All three are good news for me. I played a bit of the Bureau for the heck of it last week and found it super enjoyable. I'm looking forward to finishing it off on the One.

    The stacker in me is pleased.
    I work on achievements. Life sanity tip: don't work on achievements.

    Question: Does that mean we can play the DE Version now on the Xbox One? Previously, you would have needed a PAL 360.

    If so, is it possible to buy from the XONE Store? or would I need a physical disc?

    Thanks

    Assuming they made the DE version backward compatible you can play it on the Xbox One as it is region free (well except for China). However you will need a German XBL account and German payment method and possibly a VPN to Germany to buy it from the Xbox 360 store. A disc from eBay can be easier.

    It's pretty good, especially for $4:

    Might have to go through The Darkness for the 3rd time. Absolutely loved that game.

    Duke Nukem Forever was fun too. Yeah Gearbox basically polished a turd, but despite the smell, I could deal with it at times. Even the DLC was alright.

    The Darkness Is awesome. I wish it had the comedy that was in the comic but it is still a great game. Since I have Duke it’s good that it is now future proof if I decide to actually play it.

    Is Duke Nukem Forever (JP) now BC? It didn’t say it was, but I thought I’d ask.

    I just play that on the PS3 a little while ago not really know what kind of game it was. It wasn't bad and I played it all the way though. One trophy didn't pop for me though that should have but other than that it was a pretty solid experience.
