    here's an odd question - was Golden Axe re-listed in the marketplace fully? I saw it as purchasable via XB1 during the dash beta before the 360 purchase tunneling went fully live , but I already owned it...

    time to see if there's more Sega titles I never bought eheh

    [edebt: wow neither of them, hope they put all the standalone Genesis/MD games on sale soon...]

    The ghost busters arcade game? Man, I'm really hoping they add the original Ghostbusters game and fix the glitchy achievements. What a gift that would be!

    The Cave is awesome. You end up having to play through it several times for all the achievements, but it's a great game nonetheless.

    Anybody still playing these games? I never heard the most of the Backward Compatible XBLA games... When it was officially published, I though the best sellers will be the first BCs on Xbox One. I don't understand the Microsoft why working on these XBLAs.

    Wow! Altered Beast & Sanctum of Slime in the same update?? Is it still April 1st anywhere in the world? That's the only explanation I could think of for such a travesty.

    Altered Beast is a very quick 200 whats wrong with that? Any game where you can abuse the save feature is great for GamerScore

    With how bad Sanctum of Slime was it is amazing they spent the money to get it BC.

    dont own any of these but its great to see 5 more games being added so soon after the last few. They have really been adding them big time lately and hopefully can get some big name games soon since we've already seen RDR leaked its eventually on its way.

    Nice to see The Cave on that list. However, BC is still quite a shame compared to all the hype it was announced with. Still waiting for lots of AAA-titles (yeah yeah, the publishers... I know)...

    Fantastic! I bought the cave ages ago and literally looked at it again 2 days ago thinking I need to play that, this makes it much more flexible/easier..

    Altered Beast was fun long ago. Not sure I'm in a rush to go back to it.

What a surprising amount of people don't realize is the publishers have to approve it. Microsoft can want the games they want, but unless the publisher agrees, that game can't go BC.

    That's why you see the more highly voted games still waiting, their publishers haven't approved it. The vote system isn't to say what will come, it's to tell publishers what we want to come.

    Glad to see The Cave there.
    I think I bought it just as the Xbox One came out so it got pushed to the side, pretty decent game from what I remember.

    Got a hankering for some Oblivion, I hope it gets the BC treatment soon. That or the Tomb Raider Legend trilogy. dive
