The Major’s been at it again. Today he tweeted about three new games that are about to be added to the backwards compatibility library, and we have to be honest here, it’s something of a mixed bag.

GYRUSS is an old school fixed shooter that was first released in the distant days of 1983. Yes, that’s right children of the new millennium, this game was released way back in the ’80’s. Raiden IV is a vertical scrolling shooter that is a mere clone of the games that came before it in the franchise. There are many levels for you to play through and some of the bosses are terrifying. The real meat in this bag though is the final game, Red Faction: Armageddon. This is a game that needs very little introduction but lets just say that it is a third person shooter where the environments are well and truly destructible.
Is this a lineup that appeals to you, are any of these classic games that you have just been waiting to revisit? Let us know in the comments section below.
