Microsoft added three more titles to the ever-increasing list of Xbox 360 games that are backward compatible with the Xbox One today. The new additions include Bejeweled 3, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, and Gatling Gears.
While the company typically adds to the list on Tuesdays and Thursdays, this week's three additions already tops the amount of games added in any week since the beginning of August. Indeed, last week only saw two on Tuesday, and the week before was only Call of Duty 2 on Tuesday and Joust on Thursday.
Here are today's additions:

Join DeathSpank, in his all new adventure! Fight through war-torn battlefields, tame the violent High Plains and sail your own pirate ship through the savage seas. DeathSpank will vanquish all-new evils, help all-new downtrodden, and dispense justice as only he can. Wield exciting new weapons, slay unbelievable new creatures and get to the bottom of the Thongs of Virtue. The downtrodden cry for justice and DeathSpank will save them or kill them trying.
When the Empire begins its reign of destruction in a thirst for natural resources, it’s up to Max Brawley, a retired Gatling Gear pilot, to stop them. Together with his niece and his trusty Gatling Gear unit he must fight his way to the heart of the Empire and eliminate the destruction at its source.
While backward compatible games are a great way to get new content on the cheap, don't forget about Microsoft's Games with Gold program. If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, you can get two free (repeat: free) Xbox One and two free backward compatible Xbox 360 games every month.
You can still grab WWE 2K16 (Xbox One), which was part of last month's Games with Gold, until the 15th. As for this month's, you can get Earthlock: Festival of Magic (Xbox One) all month and Forza Horizon (Xbox 360) until the 15th. Beginning on the 16th, you can claim Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China (Xbox One) and Mirror's Edge (Xbox 360).
