Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 and More Now Backward Compatible

  • Posted on 18 January 18 at 22:07
    This is good news. I love 2013-14. They were the highlights of the DotP series, imo. Still boot them up on 360 from time to time for a game or two. Plus, they both had amazing music. Especially 2013.

    Finally! I have a reason to go back and finish the first magic game!

    This is great. I needed to work on the muliplayer achievements in 2014, but was too lazy to fire up my second 360. Hopefully 2015 is not far behind on the BC schedule.
    2015? there is no 2015! But 2012 that seem to not yet be backwards
    2012 was added as backwards compatible a while ago on its own for some odd reason, I’m not sure if they’ll bother with 2015 since there is also an Xbox one version.

    Great news though, should make tidying up the series slightly more convenient.

    if only the steady stream of more 360 titles going BC continues like this :) and make it GOOD series going BC, not some randy ass weird indie arcade thing no one heard of -_-
    Not sure if you're just making a general point, or implying MTG is "some randy ass weird indie arcade thing no one heard of"...

    Sweet, I can always just stay with one system to go and get those achievements I've been on and off working on over a long time lol.
    Now you're dead.

    wow! Was almost beginning to think Microsoft was going to stop adding games to BC.

    When you said "and more" I didn't think you meant two other Magic: The Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers games. Lame.

    Already completed all these, but it's nice to see Wizards of the Coast still being good guys and keeping servers open.

    2013 and 2014 were the most fun and enjoyable DotP Games.
    I make multiple lists ranging from achievements to dlc pricing. Constantly updating data when available.

    Not bad. Might actually consider picking some of these up now if they ever go on sale.

    Magic Duels has soured me on magic games on the Xbox. Only 250 more daily quests to go!

    I promise you Duels pales in comparison to the rest in terms of achievements, playability, and overall quality. Unlike the garbage game from garbage developers, all the old games were great. If Arena ends up on consoles I recommend that too.

    There has to be a to a bug with the backwards compatible version of Duels of the Planeswalkers. Whenever I play the AI they never attack and just throw away creature cards. Even the last guy who is supposedly supposed to be really hard never attacked.
