These seemingly random games give me hope that some of my guilty pleasures will get the BC treatment.
Games such as, Gray Matter or DJ Hero. Shadows of the Damned would be a good one too.

I'm curious...isn't Dragon's Lair mainly a Kinect game? I was under the impression that backwards compatibility wasn't going to have Kinect support.

No it can be played with a controller :) They've disabled the Kinect option.

It was refusing to install on my NTSC deck with a NTSC disc, even after a hard reboot - just sat there with the generic install icon and no response when clicking it

Just went into the store with the disc in the drive and did a search - Install option showed up there, weird stuff

(If that doesn't work try changing your deck region to US)

You sir, are a legend. I changed the region and worked like a charm.

The Jurassic Park game is pretty good, and it is by TellTale so it has the same gameplay as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. I just wish the disk I got wasn't damaged and could actually have finished it. Only had a chapter or two left. Damn you GameStop. facepalm

A question about Jurassic Park.

Does anyone know how the purchasing works on the xbox one store if you are in the UK (payment set up as UK) and change to the US store, can you use your normal details? or do you have to buy xbox credit off ebay or something and use that?

Battlestations: Midway! That's a nice surprise considering the original publisher was acquired by Square Enix. Hopefully the excellent sequel will be made backwards compatible as well.

Midway is so good. One of my favorite 100% completions.

I don't see DJ hero happening, except in the fringe case where they can somehow update the adapter used to use 360 instruments.
