    Still no Rallisport Challenge 2 or Oddworld Strangers Wrath!!!

    I give up :thumbsdow :mad: :censored:

    [EDIT]At least Links is there, slight conselation I suppose. But I really can't excuse M$ for not letting me play Rallisport 2, I mean it's not as if we have any true 360 rally games either now or in the near future.

    Glad to see Mortal Kombat Deception is back on the list. Was really disapointed when it was dropped from the list.

    Will be scouring the bargains bins for a copy of Lego Star Wars! :clap:

    They never said they weren't going to bother. Peter Moore made a comment about it stopping at some point but MS were quick to respond saying that the updates would continue and that their target was still 100%.

    It would seem so as this info is from Major Nelson and the spy hunter game has yet to be released also seems daft they would do this as will hurt sales on the lego game as i cant see there being much difference between the two games

    HD lego brick anyone?

    Played a few holes of Links last night, works through VGA although it made the display much smaller than the full screen size, an issue I seem to have with most of the B/C games on the 360 using VGA.

    Looks great though, IMO it has aged better than Burnout 3, I was a bit surpised how cruel time has been on that game, Burnout Revenge on my PS2 looks way ahead in terms of graphics for me.

    Nice to have Links back, simple but at least it's simple fun. Wish they'd make a new instalment to the Actua Golf series, I really loved Actua Golf 2 for some reason, it just had something.

    Amped 2 is BC and you get Amped 3 for the 360.

    I gave up on BC games cos I cant get them to play widescreen. That's probably my doing though. Only actually tried KOTORII.

    iill give you amped, but burnout 3 is very different to revent ( different courses etc) however maybe i should have worded better.

    sure if a game works easily with the emulator then it will be emulated, however, i doubt they would put extra time into a game when you can get a version for the 360, when they could spend more time getting a "unique" game working.

    however this is all surmising i could be v wrong ;)

    Why oh Why is there no Toca 3.

    We now have Catwomen & Richard Burns Rally.

    Toca is one of the best racing games ever, who the hell decides which games to update........?????????

    I am pretty sure KOTOR2 was never widescreen, that explains your trouble.

    It doesn't neccessarily work like that... if they've already made a game compatible and another game uses similar technology then it'll be easy for them to convert it. I imagine Catwoman probably uses the same game engine as something already compatible, rather than the BC Team suddenly deciding "I know what we'll make compatible... Catwoman!".

    Fair enough, that makes sense.

    I still dont understand why a game like Toca 3 is still not on the list. Great games like this should be the priority.
