checking to see what games have been added to the backwards comparability list has become almost exciting as tracking new releases for me lately. This week is a huge one... Daytona USA!

I'll put this in the "questions" thread, but I picked up the Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 disc recently because it comes with three from the arcade classic series: Pac-Man, Galaga and Dig Dug. AND they're actually on disc! No codes, which made me feel good about actually getting the physical copy ($12ish nowadays).

I can't seem to find a dedicated Xbox One game deals thread, but I found this pretty interesting. Slime Rancher is one of the free games with gold titles for August. Though it's been in early access on Steam for a while, it became a free games with gold game the day it officially released (8/1), which is pretty damn cool. I don't really know anything about it, but it did receive a rather glowing review over on Rock Paper Shotgun.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, Buffy is an excellent game.

I'd definitely play that again and Jade Empire.

Might be to coincide with the backwards compatibility, but it seems that MS is making a throwback controller https://www.polygon.com/2017/9/21/16345 ... date-price


All part of the plan to make Xbox the biggest platform.

oh yeah I saw that somewhere recently. I was never a fan of the duke myself, but it's kind of neat that they're doing it. Supposedly the OG Xbox BC titles will start to hit "in the Fall" sometime, so it makes sense.

Yeah, I didn't buy an X-box for myself until after they'd started bundling the Controller S (I'd bought an earlier one, but it was a gift for one of my brothers). So, I never really used the Duke controller much - in my opinion, neither are perfect, but the S was a general improvement. It is, however, less iconic, so if the point is to coincide with the classic releases then it may make sense. Additionally, the X-box controllers (and PS2-PS3) had pressure sensitive buttons, which the current consoles no longer incorporate. So maybe these'll end up being functionally better, if they do more than look the same.

Playboy: The Mansion on the list made me legit LOL. I have a couple of those, may have to pick up The Punisher (not that I couldn't just get digitally on sale).
