Something that can be said about Microsoft, especially since Phil Spencer took charge, is that they definitely don't adopt a 'fire and forget' philosophy when it comes to Backwards Compatibility. They have a team constantly working on patches, bugs and releases and like to keep you updated through social media of things they're working on. Look at Halo Reach for example. When that was released it was riddled with bugs, screen-tearing and numerous other annoyances that made the game unplayable on Xbox One. If you fire it up today, it's as polished as the day it was born. Proof that ... Read More »

This could be seen as a big move for Microsoft who have always held the Monday morning slot for many years.

You still have the concept of tight story deliverance and all the great things you come to expect with Mass Effect." This shouldn't really come as a surprise as the previous games followed the same pattern. Sometimes ... Read More »
