Backwards compatibility on Xbox One

The Late Night Session

One of the best (and most surprising) announcements at Microsoft’s E3-2015 presentation was that the Xbox One would soon be able to play Xbox 360 games. And not just discs; Xbox Live Arcade and Games on Demand titles will also be available to play.

In a clear shot across the bow of Sony’s PlayStation Now service it was clearly stated that the games you already own will be yours to play on the Xbox One with no additional cost.

If you are a part of the Xbox One preview program this will be available now. For everyone else, it will launch later in the year with over one hundred titles supported.

Games currently running include:

  • A Kingdom for Keflings
  • A World of Keflings*
  • Alien Hominid HD
  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • BattleBlock Theater*
  • Defense Grid*

DYING LIGHT Zombies Not Laughing at Techland April Fools Gag

An excellent idea for some April Fools fun! I love when developers are willing to have a bit of fun with their users!

Another Castle

Techland, creators of the early 2015 blockbuster success Dying Light, have announced today that they intend to celebrate April Fools with a bit of in-game fun.

Dying Light players who dive in on April 1 will find themselves with a tainted batch of Antizin, the antidote designed to prevent the spread of the zombifying infection. This “bad batch” is said to have some unexpected side effects and players will be able to exploit them, with hilarious consequence.

These side effects, as listed in a video on the Dying Light YouTube channel, will include “uncontrollable fits of violence”, “excessive strength and aggression”, “persistent muscular tension”, “severely altered motor skills” and an “obsessive compulsive need to kick stuff”.
