December: Last update of the year, and like it’s always been, new stuff’s been added days after my last update. No danger of that though this time, since it’s been confirmed that no new games will be added until next year. For now though, you’ll just have to enjoy The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Catherine, Bully: Scholarship Edition, and the entire Bioshock saga.

Actually, one interesting thing about the original (and only one worth playing) Bioshock: when it launched on the Xbox 360, the game originally had an unlocked framerate as an option in the settings, which meant the game could play at above 30 FPS, but with horrendous V-Sync issues. Forward thinking for 2007 on a console game, but too ambitious for its time. Now though, with the power of the Xbox One, you can unlock the framerate on this console game, play it at 60 FPS, and there’s no screen tearing whatsoever. Kind of makes Bioshock: The Collection pointless, huh?

As always, all you need to play these games is the original game disc (or just an original digital purchase, unless it’s a specific JRPG...), either on the 360 years ago or if you’ve never played the game, you can now buy them on the Xbox One. No subscription required, unless it’s a Games With Gold title.
