    Nothing that I have, but it's nice to see the BC list grow at such a rapid rate!

    Nice to see new BC games. Now just hoping for a massive GwG drop (of past GwG games)

    The Deathspank games are actually pretty solid..

    Not quite sure why the second one out of the three is now BC. I hope the rest will follow.

    Glad to see GG on their. Not so happy that Deathspank is the only of the trilogy I don't own laugh

    Which was a bigger hype buster? Destiny or Backwards Compatibility?

    I'm glad to see more titles added but cmon nobody is looking at these titles being added for the most part and going 'YES!!!'

    I don't mean to complain, but I really wish they would get more of the earlier GwG onto backwards compatibility. Would be nice to move those titles over to my Xbox One...

    I LOVE these notifications about more games being backwards. It makes me less stressed about the possible time limit to complete games. All backwards games are the games that I just wait with.

    I've had Gatling Gears in my backlog since forever.. I need to start it at some point.
    Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

    Awesome, awesome, awesome. I've been wanting a thong of virtue on my Xbox One for SO long. Great choices!

    Gatling Gears is ok-ish. Worth a play.

    My son plays Joyride Turbo all the time - and it's one of the worst looking BC games - looks terrible.

    It would be nice if they came out with a list of games that are definitely, for sure, in no uncertain terms, are never coming to backwards compatibility. They've got that list of Closed games on the Xbox Voting thing, but I think all of them were games that needed peripherals like instruments and the Kinect. A list that said what's not coming would be helpful as we could quit getting our hopes up only to be disappointed (I personally think that Hope was the worst evil in Pandora's Box, but that's neither here nor there).

    That's kind of an ignorant thing to say. I, for one, am happy Bejeweled 3 is now playable.

    That's false advertising. I'm pretty sure that Candy Crush is "the world's #1 puzzle game" based on how often the women around me play it.

    Are you serious?? There's no way they release BC Bioshock until well after the Bioshock Remastered Collection has been out in the wild for a decent amount of time. I wouldn't expect it any time soon.
