    Yeah, Prey Deluxe Edition. Hoping it's a Dishonoured in space.

    Hey Risen is on sale to coincide with the baffling remaster coming out this week! That's neat!
    Not even a remaster, just a preservation port.
    I'm not familiar with that term, what does that mean?
    A port from a considerably older platform to a contemporary one with the aim of making the older game playable on modern operating systems and hardware. On PC this takes the form of releasing patches for a much older game designed to work with say Win 98-XP so that'll it function on Win 10/11.

    Very interesting (and awesome), thanks for the info!

    As I've previously mentioned, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger doesn't appear to work on the 360 any longer, despite it having 360 box art in the Microsoft store. However, given that it was listed here again, I decided to buy it, and it definitely does NOT download to or work on the 360. Therefore, it is not backwards compatible, only "forwards compatible:" a 360 game that only works on the One or newer. It should be taken off the backwards-compatible list and put in the One list in the future. I wonder how many other 360 games are like this?

    I'll play it when I eventually get a Series X a few years from now.

    Tomb Raider Survivor Trilogy has gone on sale like clock work every month in like the 3rd or 4th week of the month. Of course when I decide I want to buy it, it skips sale this month lol.
