I don't see anything I like but I also have a chunk of titles I have to go through that I'm in no rush to add to the list right away.  After I get through most of them then lots of these will be on sale again or just cheap to begin with.

Nice start to the new year for BC,  it really is a good idea for publishers to get their games on the list,  you can still buy them and at very low prices so it only adds to their bottom line in the end.

Yep agree to some point, but don't forget we still see a lot of titles being remastered, which would be a good reason to not add to BC. Also if a sequel is due and they don't want to take the attention away from that, could be another reason. 

 

Still 100% behind you, and publishers really should push to make as many of their titles BC as they can.

Yeah,  if they want to do a remaster then sure,  valid reason not to add it,  but I think we're not going to see many more of those at this point,  it was a good and quick way for them to get something on the new systems at the start. 

 

Now that we're a good bit into this generation it's time for new games to come out.  Also if there is a sequel in the pipeline then releasing the older ones to BC is a good way to get people to jump into the series and buy the sequel.

Batman: Return to Arkham - Oct

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim - Oct

Yeah, but I really don't think we'll see many more going into this year, I think it's time for them to work out on games targeting the PS4 Pro and Scorpio, we could see "4k" updates hitting games now as the next new fad in gaming.  I really hope the remakes end and we can move on to new games.  I really don't play games over often, I always hunger for something new be it new IP or even sequels to series I like.

Don't forget Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and Catherine...we're definitely seeing a lot of unexpected BC games showing up which is promising.
