Over at the Surfer Girl Reviews Star Wars
rumor blog she lists some original XBox games that are supposedly coming out this next year. If she's right, there may be a few happier people around here (mostly because that should mean they also get straight backwards compatibility). I've bolded some interesting ones:
Some of the 2008 additions to the Xbox Originals lineup: Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding, Amped 2, Armed and Dangerous, Blinx: The Time Sweeper, Blinx 2: Masters of Time & Space, Blood Wake, Brute Force, Conker: Live & Reloaded, Dead or Alive 3, Deathrow, Dino Crisis 3, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Fable bonus content, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, GunValkyrie, Halo 2, Jade Empire, Jet Set Radio Future, Mechassault, MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf, Metal Arms: Glitch in the System, Midtown Madness 3, Ninja Gaiden, Quantum Redshift, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Phantom Dust Rent-A-Hero No. 1, Shenmue II, Sneakers, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Stubbs the Zombie in "Rebel Without a Pulse", Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus, ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth, Tork: Prehistoric Punk, Voodoo Vince, Whacked!. Service expected to have over one hundred titles end of next year.
Nice to see ones such as Armed and Dangerous, Deathrow, Voodoo Vince, Metal Arms and the Mech Assaults. I know at least one person around here will be happy to see her mention Midtown Madness 3, too! Of course it's just rumor, but she has been right about other things before.
Oh, and she also mentions that Cryptic is no longer working on the Marvel MMO and some other things.
