    YES! I'll probably go back and get the rest of my achievements for The Cave now. :-D

    And to be honest, any game they bring back is good. Even if I dont have it, the more the merrier
    I agree


    as for the games though I have heard terrible things about sanctum of slime

    Guessing the bigger games are having the bigger framerate issues, hence the retros being released first.

    I for one am happy to see these old classics becoming BC. I am looking forward to firing them with my brother and playing some old school. These are also cheap, easy games that were already emulated for 360. So converting to XB1 is probably easier for these titles.

    The Cave is a very cool, fun little game. Check it out if you get a chance

    Dozens of potential reasons exist for why a game isn't released to the public.
    -They're still testing stuff
    -A glitch or bug may still be present (imagine all the shit MS would get if a players console, profile or save got messed up)
    -They're waiting for the right opportunity (gotta avoid those game droughts)
    Activision's part is done, it's all up to MSFT to put this game in BC, my point is that people should blame MSFT for these promised titles.

    Personally, I'd like to see CoD Modern Warfare Series and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection get in there, those would be great to stream on Twitch, but Microsoft is sitting there with their dick in their hand with all the idiots voting troll games into the program.

    In unrelated news, if you have Sonics Genesis/Mega Drive Collection, you can get Golden Axe and Sonic 1-3 installed.

    I like to see XBox Live titles being made available for the X1. Altered Beast and Comix Zone are a couple of classics IMHO.

    Considering the laser reader in my 360 is going south, and it won't let me play Modern Warfare 1 & 2, not to mention my Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, I'd really like to get those and Modern Warfare 3 approved to the BCG list so I could play them on my X1, especially disc 1 of MGSHDC so I can finish 1000'ing it.

    As well, my 007 titles don't work, so those would be nice. And Need For Speed Most Wanted 2012 as well.

    I keep hoping to see Fallout: New Vegas as a BC title. I have yet to play that one...

    People in this thread that keep saying "I cant believe they spent money to bring these games". The emulator runs games like Fallout 3, Dark Souls, Halo Reach, Dead Space and Gears Of War. Not to mention Alan Wake. As I believe the Mega Drive/Genesis game were released as emulated ROMS anyway I would presume all the Mega Drive games pretty much work and very little testing is needed. In fact nowadays I would imagine given the versatility of the games out most games will run.

    Personally I want to see SEGA games like Vanquish, Bayonetta, Sonic Gens and Sonic Racing Transformed. Seeing as SEGA seem pretty on-board with BC I assume they are all round the corner. Also really want to see FarCry 3 (Never finished it). Rayman Legends (Never finished it) and COD4 (Never completed on Vet) although the recent remake seems to make that unlikely now. Forza Horizon would be great too!

    Yeah, the SGC was emulated to run on 360 hardware, but they have to re-code it to run on X1, that's the idea when they make these games backwards-compatible.
