Backwards compatibility and this exclusive that looks great. 2015 is the year of Microsoft getting it right at Cons.

Just saw the news for Halo Wars 2 on the One's front page.  All is forgiven for Halo 4 and possibly 5.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

So, I recall in Headhunters they had red energy swords.  Wonder if this red energy gravity hammer has any connection.  If I'm not mistaken, the red swords indicated a special ops team of Sangheili, could be some equivalent for the Jiralhanae.

Didn't General Monkey Boss Face in Halo 2 carry a red hammer?

Nah, Tartarus' special hammer just had a tractor beam function, no red energy blades.

No Geometry Wars makes me sad, I hope they get that patched in soon
Oh, why must I tell 'em again?
What must I tell 'em, my friend?
That we are born into sin
And we are worshiping murderers
Nothing but evil duplicitous men
I know you heard of 'em all
We should just murder 'em all
We should just murder and ball
We dance on the ruins we looting from all of they palace's walls

I'm trying to wrap my head around doing Doom and Doom II, but not 3 BFG.  Wasn't it Xbox exclusive for a while?  And it includes the first two in it as well.  Sonic 1-3 & CD but no Sonic & Knuckles is also fairly weird.  Ah well, eventually.

Ikaruga's an unexpected but welcome early addition, and I'm really glad for Stick of Truth.  Gave my 360 to my brothers after only reaching Kenny's house, I must continue it.  So solid lineup for me.  Still, curious if multi-disc games will be a possibility.  I'd love to revisit Lost Odyssey, or get FF XIII right this time.

Hm, nothing really standing out on the One for me.  Would have been nice if they did seperate sales one the two Goat Simulators, considering most players probably got the first one in one of its previous sales.  360's got some good stuff though, willing to bet a good number of them will make the jump over to the One as well.

Microsoft is closing off the end of year with 5 free games for XB1, considering the free XB360 games will be playable on XB1 backwards compatibility.

List of new batch of backwards compatible titles said:
    Braid
    DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION
    Doritos Crash Course
    Fable III
    Halo: Reach
    Hydro Thunder
    Iron Brigade
    Kane & Lynch 2
    Motocross Madness
    MS.PAC-MAN
    Peggle
    Portal: Still Alive
    Spelunky
    Splosion Man
    Ticket to Ride™
    Zuma’s Revenge!

Ahhh so this is the power.....of Xbox One backwards compatibility. I don't care that I can play these with a disc or whatever, when maybe two at most from these batches has been decent I'd rather pay money to get ones I want like with Sony.

They had a crucial month to release good titles and blew it. This is literally typical Xbox division.

Uh...among those, Braid, Deus Ex, Halo Reach, Hydro Thunder, Portal, Spelunky and Splosion Man are really good choices, a lot of fun and some of them fairly requested often.  Arguably Fable III as well, I liked the series anyways.

Only one I'm confused on is the Doritos game.  I thought all three were taken down shortly after each came out.  Last I checked they were all gone.  Unless this one's back up to get, does this mean Scott Pilgrim has a chance of making it over?
