Thanks for the BC games thus far take your well deserved break

Gotcha5171d ago

Start 2018 BC with Ninja Gaiden 2, Vanquish, Ninja Blade, Binary Domain, John Woo Stranglehold and Max Payne 3.

Loktai171d ago

Who the hell disagree'd you? LOL.

Thats an impressive number of BC games. Great team.

darthv72171d ago

Enjoy that break and come back with a full list of games to make BC. I'd recommend Blinx, Stubbs, Quantum Redshift, JSRF, Otogi, Outrun 2, Gunvalkyrie.....

VERY VERY happy with BC so far. This is the only reason my Xbox is tied with my Switch for time played, and that's only because of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Until that came out, I didn't really touch my Switch after I finished Mario.

Can't wait for more BC games! Thank you BC team, and Merry Christmas, happy New Year.

I am dying to play the Ninja Gaiden games again. We need NG2 + NG Razor's Edge and even NGZ!

Happy holidays to the BC team.

Now crack a whip for the team building new IPs at Xbox HQ.

"Now crack a whip for the team building new IPs at Xbox HQ."

Unnecessary comment.

Just because they´re quiet doesn´t mean that they´re doing nothing. This is Phil Spencer who doesn´t want to reveal games to early anymore. Besides, nobody likes rushed/incompleted games.

Septic172d ago

I'm not saying they aren't doing anything. Just saying they should crack on because the Xbox is overdue on its delivery on that front.

"I'm not saying they aren't doing anything. Just saying they should crack on because the Xbox is overdue on its delivery on that front."

I understand your frustation, but, i think they (MS first party studios) are well aware of that and don´t need the extra pressure from MS suits.

So you want the BC team to make a new IP. A bad idea overall but that's assuming they do have are our team and a writer that is capable of doing a game . so I don't know. They definitely have the technical ability

kenna999171d ago

That's not what he said. Maybe you should read his comment again

Bigpappy171d ago

The article is about the BC team taking a break. Nothing wrong with trolling M$ if you need new exlusives so badly, but that would be off topic and inappropriate here.

KwietStorm171d ago

That's not even what he said..

gangsta_red171d ago

I agree with Septic. MS has knocked the ball out of the park with correcting the wrongs of the vanilla Xbox One with the S and X versions.

They have killed it with features and accessibility but now it's time for MS to devote that same attention to some new IPs. And not just new IPs but exciting ones that are greatly anticipated.

Are you guys allergic to news IPs?

New bold IPs that get people excited not just curious.

letsa_go170d ago

So by "cracking the whip", you are implying that they are slaves? Pretty racist and insensitive, if you ask me!

Black0ut170d ago

Did someone mention cracking a whip? Giggity 😃😂

I hope they get some great games out next year like NFS MW 2005, Burnout Revenge, Crackdown 1 and 2, Lost Planet 1 and 2, COD MW 2 and 3 to name a few.

Concertoine171d ago

Lost planet 2 is such a fun game, very underrated
