    I have already completed 3d ultra mini golf so that can hangout in my ready to download but I own Contra and only have one achievement in it so bring it on, glad to see more and more coming, especially the arcade titles as I used to own a ton!

    I don't have any of these, but Contra sounds popular so I may as well check it out :o

    Contra itself is a great game, but the 360 version is plagued by some of the worst netcode I've ever personally experienced. It was an honest challenge to get the Co-op achievement because no matter who I play with we wind up very quickly desynced. Like, really desynced. As in "I'm playing Level 3 and they're still playing Level 2" amounts of desync. It's crazy.

    Glad Golf: Tee It Up! is Backward Compatible. I just had this fear it would be de-listed, but it looks like that's not the case.

    Great little Golf game. You don't need to be a Pro Golfer to play it. If you enjoyed the Arcade Style of Golf such as Everybody's Golf & Mario Golf, I recommend giving this game a try.

    Why was 3D Ultra Minigolf 2 delisted?
    I would love to know this too. I loved the first game for a bit of fun. I didn't even find out about the sequel until the original got delisted. Which I had known, because I definitely would have purchased it.

    RoboBlitz is really fun for the price, and is one of the backwards compatible games I've personally been waiting for. So, I'm happy :D

    Anybody else having any issues running Golf: Tee It Up? I own the game but it wasn't showing in my ready to install list, went through to purchase again which confirmed I owned it, and then starting installing, once installed it won't let me play, keeps asking if I own the game and to insert disc?

    ? You must be the only player who got his access to games decreased because of the BC program.

    How did u get Golf to download? when I search it in the store and click it it says buy now for $4.99

    Same thing with Gin Rummy, and I know I own them both and confirm on xbox.com is says "already purchased".

    It's always good seeing more bc titles appear. Now I can always hope for Novadrome to come out for BC.
    I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite site on the internet.

    Really happy about Gin Rummy. Very good interface.

    Now bring on Divinity 2 and Venetica!
    Divinity 2 would indeed be a great addition!
