For me the big news here is that's BL2 will be Backwards Compatible, which is great.

Heavy Weapon may be 10 years old, but it is still one of the most fun arcade games on the 360. Classic shoot-em up XBLA game and it has online 4 player co-op too. It still makes me laugh how a lot of games nowadays say they can't do online multiplayer because of funds / resources yet this 10 year old xbox live arcade title managed just fine laugh

I had a friend recommend Borderlands 2 to me. I paid full price and the 4 of us sat down to play it. I put a good 12 hours into it, they never touched it again.

I wish I did the same. I have no idea why it gets the praise it gets because it is a really, really, really bad game

I'm glad Borderlands 2 is on the list as I was burgled a few months ago and that was one of my games which was stolen (along with one of my 360s and some other stuff), although it was in the steelbook case and that's hard to come by now without paying through your nose for it

Crap, Crap, Crap & more Crap. With the sheer number of bozo millenial cafe gamers jumping up & down saying hand outs like this are good.....

No wonder they only give out Crap!

Great. More crap to fill my game library that I will never complete or have an interest in.

Nice! I want Layers of Fear and have been going back and forth on actually buying it for a while.

As much as I love walking sims, Layers of Fear was a bit of a failure for me because as a walking sim horror, it never presented a real threat. Great atmosphere, lovely soundtrack, and a decent story, but riddled with tropes and doesn't pay off because you can tell that the game's design will never present a genuine threat to you, only scripted creep outs. It's like a haunted house where you know the actors can't touch you so the scares lose their meaning.

Looking forward to messing with Evolve and BL2 though. I haven't played either, and though that's because I didn't want to buy them, I'll give them a go for free.

lol @ Evolve. Skipped it all the times it was less than $10 at Best Buy, and I'm still not gonna play it.

Now, the question is will Borderlands 2 (like the first) automatically include all DLC when we play it on the X1? That would be pretty awesome.
I actually hope so, because if so, I can get rid of my physical copy.
I doubt it. Borderlands is (as far as I know) the only backwards compatible game that does this.

I can only imagine the amount of bellyaching on this site once it drops and people find out it doesn't come with the DLC.

Looks like I've got another 4 games being added to the backlog that is my Grand Canyon of unplayed games. Hehe. Free is free so I won't complain and the fact that they're pretty highly ranked games is a bonus.

Oh of course, but I can wish can't I :)? I can't remember if I sold my copy which had the DLC or not when I bought Handsome Collection for X1 (I probably did). I'll have to check when I get home.

And to answer FreshAspek, more than likely it will go BC either Tomorrow (Thursday) or next Tuesday. They like doing it a few days early to make sure any kinks are worked out.

It is already BC and we already got it from gwg.

Ok so people can get it for free now, but I found Layers incredibly dull. It's not scary at all, really slow and having to replay the whole thing just as I missed one tiny requirement to trigger an ending was seriously annoying. Not going to bother with Evolve either, something the developers admitted was designed from the ground up to sell DLC

Looking forward to Layers of Fear and borderlands 2. Couldn't be bothered with Evolve, the game is a fail and won't be very popular after a month of being free anyhow. Great time to grind for evolve achievements for anyone that has already started,
