still no Gladius :(


Yeah, isn’t Gladius the one game people care about?

I’m lucky – I bought it on GameCube, so back compat isn’t an issue for me for that title.

No Two Thrones either :(

I think the only game on that list I even own is Hunter: The Reckoning, and I’m not just dying to play it again.

Bleh, I don’t own Armed and Dangerous anymore. That was a great game.

18 minutes? You guys are slipping.

I dont think people care about Gladius, based on its sales. Too bad though, tremendous game IMO.

Why the fuck do they bother with sports titles from years back?

The same reason they bother with Barbie Horse Adventures, which is to say they don’t… really.

They fix general emulation issues that impact games people do actually care about and then try to run all the games that don’t currently work to see if other games on the list of unsupported titles list now work too. Any game that is suddenly now working or near enough to working that the effort to make it run fully is trivial is then added onto the BC release.

Sometimes, rarely, a gem comes along that far outlasts its intended one year run. NHLPA 93 or NHL Hockey would be a good example for me. But for the most part I agree with you, I’d rather not see too much work making old series sports titles work. Stand alone sports titles would be okay though.
