Nice to see Lego Star Wars II is already on the list.  Are we sure that isn't a misprint?  I assume it's the same engine as the first, but I'm surprised they would let them potentially cannibalize some (presumably more expensive) 360 sales.

I was waiting for Fatal Frame 2 to become compatable, I think I'll be buying that at the store tonight.

I'm waiting for the full 360 release of HL2 which they said would contain Episodes 1, 2, along with Team Fortress 2 and Portal.

If Mortal Kombat Deception was the one that got good reviews as a farewell game to the classic MK, then I think I'll buy that so that I have some sort of fighting game on my 360.  I just couldn't stand DoA4.

Nice to see Burnout 3.  In my opinion that was the best of the series and I love playing that one with my friends. 

Still pretty weak on the other titles and missed some good ones, as already pointed out.

Burnout 3 and The Suffering... they're slowly whittling away at my favorites.  But yeah, they need to get on JSRF and Psychonauts NOW.

Who was always going on about how great Counterstrike was?  They should be happy.

Definitely nice to see Counter-Strike finally added to that list.. that was my #1 Xbox game.
The only two games left that I'm looking to see are Unreal Championship 1 & 2 and then I'm set!

Links is fantastic!!!!  I need to go try that right now!

Question:  It says that MK:Deception (updated).  What does that mean exactly?  Is there a website or link you are pulling this information from that I can go look myself, or do you have some secret "inside-information" like Woody Paige?

thanks.

Usually that means that the emulation has been improved so that, even though the title was on the BC list before, that it either no longer has some known issues or that framerates have been improved.  This was pulled from the Xbox BC page but they don't give any more details than that.

Ummmm... what's an XBOX?   icon_twisted

Much as I loved Riddick, Thief 3, Pirates of the Caribbean (minus bugs, please), Morrowind, and many other games both on and off the BC list... I saved not ony one XBox - but two - to enable play of anything I wanted.  However... then the 360 came out and I haven't played any other machine since, other than occasional handhelds.  Granted, I've spent most of that time with FFXI, lol, but still. It just takes me so long to play through a game that there are very few I've ever wanted to repeat. 

That said, it really does seem stupid to even bother adding games like Catwoman.  Why not eliminate six "easy to BC" games, if such a thing exists - and add Riddick and other more popular games?  That, i just don't get...  :icon_confused:

Problem with some of them that aren't "easy" is that they're also impossible.
