Today is the day I put my original Xbox to rest. Larry Hryb has posted a list of newly backwards compatible titles for the Xbox 360, and with it my last non-compatible game, the brilliant Armed and Dangerous, now works in my 360. A little stuttering during the cut scenes, but the gameplay is solid and the humour intact. In fact, I nearly missed posting this story because I got wrapped up in playing, so it obviously works well enough. Armed and Dangerous is joined by Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone, The Bard's Tale, and...The Guy Game, along with many more, bringing the BC list past the 300 mark. Hit the jump for the list in its entirety. *sigh* Goodbye, giant black box. I don't know I'll fill the space left in my entertainment centre left by your passing. Perhaps a small island nation.
