October: And I thought a three month hiatus was long...

So... Halo 3 HD wasn’t announced, but every 360 Halo title has been added to the list (maybe I’ll finally get around to the ODST firefight achievements), while the one Call of Duty title I own, Modern Warfare 3, is still MIA. But no, I know what you all are here for: the OG Xbox games.

Ninja Gaiden Black, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and mother freaking Psychonauts. Better yet though is that these are no ordinary conversions; all of the games (launch ones, anyway) have been given full on, high definition graphical overhauls, which means they look stunning. Xbox has also been nice enough to upload a few videos to give you an idea of what’s to expect graphics-wise, and after playing half an hour of Ninja Gaiden Black (and beating the first boss with no problems... 16 year old me would be impressed), I can confirm it’s no joke. Granted, now I’ll have to edit my list even further to differentiate between even more consoles...

As always, all you need to play these games is the original 360 game disc or a digital purchase, and if you’ve never played the game you can now buy them on the Xbox One marketplace. Original Xbox games can be found in the digital downloads section, and supposedly the ancient discs for that console should work as well (if you can find one...) No subscription required, unless it’s a Games With Gold title.

Happy gaming!
