    Strange the C&C 3: Kane's Wrath being delisted since it just became backward compatible just last month. I'd bet this one is temporary unless it has to do with one of the actor's likeness in the game that needs relicensing.
    No, its been relisted, not delisted lol
    Whoops, my bad and that actually makes more sense...and pleases me since I need the game and really don't want another disc. Too early and just started drinking my coffee. Reading that makes me think that Castlevania game may be a future GWG then.

    I was actually really interested in #WarGames and was just hoping for a sale. Oh well.

    If anyone still wants a way to get Tetris Ultimate, Newegg is still selling digital codes for it here: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683213...

    I just bought one and redeemed it myself so I can confirm it works. No idea how many more codes they have though so if you want one, better to jump on it sooner rather than later.

    Tetris delist is surprising considering it's the only one readily available on the One.

    You stream the episodes. If you didn't get it then you've missed absolutely nothing. The game is in an almost unplayable state right now.

    So I never heard too many positive things about Wargames but when games get delisted and have no retail edition after 6 months, I guess you really have to buy everything full price to not get locked out of easy 1000G's. Luckily that's a 8-10 hour game but it gives me an itchy finger to buy 1-2 hour games right now instead of waiting months for sale. :/

    The game was streamed from their website/server. As you can guess, it ran poorly. Episodes refusing to start, constant disconnections, and progress not saving correctly.

    Very happy about Castlevania LoS. Need a sale on that asap.

    Didn't even know about that Ghostbusters game, thought it was the 360 game. Wish I picked that up now.

    This is my wish as well.

    The only way I've been able to guess a game is being delisted is when it goes on an extraordinary sale, like 85% off or so. If you see a game that usually sells for say $20 go for $3.75-5.00, it's probably a good idea to buy it if you had half an interest in ever playing it.

    Now that's not always the case, but it has happened with a few things recently. Contrast (X360) was 80% off, and the Monster Jam games were 75% off for example, and disappeared shortly after. There are others that aren't coming to mind right now.

    Haha don't worry, you're not missing out on anything. I had a look a while ago when it was on sale, it looked basically like a mobile game ported to console, and the ratings were terrible.

    Weird some rather new games being delisted.

    Also the last Ghostbusters got delisted and the old Xbox 360 game is not.
    Well, that one is better anyway. headspin

    I was waiting for a sale for Wargames since it seemed like a pretty easy completion (aside from the bugs and lag).

    Anybody want to boost the 100,000 online lines in Tetris Ultimate?

    Kinda wanted to do Tetris Ultimate someday... guess it's no big loss all told, crap game. Still though.
    I work on achievements. Life sanity tip: don't work on achievements.
