It is a mega day for Xbox One backward compatibility

I guess adding seven games in a single day wasn't enough for Microsoft's backward compatibility service. They needed to round off the number so it wasn't odd and I'm perfectly fine with the choices they made. Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, and Be...   read
