    Jokes aside, none for me, but the more the better.
    If it works, it isn't stupid.

    Really happy about Gin Rummy. Very good interface.

    Now bring on Divinity 2 and Venetica!
    I really enjoyed Venetica! Not many people have played it.

    RoboBlitz is one of the best arcade titles. It is only worth 200gs, but is a really fun game and challenging. I enjoyed that completion.

    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?
    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".
    I clicked through on the dashboard to purchase like normal and it then said I already own the game and starting downloading.

    Still can't get it to play though keeps saying there is an error

    Same problem here as posted earlier, I managed to download the game but then says I don't own it, but today it just has an error rather than say I don't own it, quite annoying

    I forgot I bought this five years ago.....love Contra. I want Meteos Wars and Space Invaders Extreme next.
    I'm thinking of just getting a used 360 because I'm impatient for bw compatibility.

    Is anybody able to get Golf Tee It Up to launch? I still can't and even messaging xbox support on twitter and they are just telling me to follow the guides on the support page for the do you own this game error, telling me to ensure I have the disc in when it's never been available on disc! It wouldn't let me install it otherwise

    It's quite frustrating

    Low demand or not, always happy to see new games added. Also, as with every article about BC titles, I own at least one of them. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing, haha!

    When is castlevania HD?
    Every time they announce new games, or I see my available games list grow on my XB1, that is the first game I check for. I'm praying we eventually get our wish. It's easily my most-wanted title of the ones not yet added to the service. So much fun, and so many folks would hop back on and play if it became BC. My other two most-wanted titles right now are Dungeon Defenders and EDF: Insect Armageddon. And then some fighting games, of course. All games that have enduring multiplayer (and thereby serve the best being on BC.)

    I still cannot get Golf Tee It Up or Gin Rummy to show up in my ready to install. Has anyone tried xbox.com chat support?

    The arcade version had the Konami code? Why???
    To give you 30 lives. And no achievements
    I mean in the arcades, did they have the code? If so, why? So one person could easily beat the game?
    I don't play games very often. :( If you have a close GamerScore, add me! We'll compete. :)
