DeS: Sephora makes esports debut with GIRLGAMER

Outland and Gunstar Heroes are worth revisiting on Xbox One


Backward compatible as of today

Have you peeked at your full Xbox One digital game library recently?

With all of the backward-compatible titles rolling in, I find myself paralyzed by choice and often end up just playing nothing. I'm hoping to avoid that situation with today's additions: Treasure's fabulous run-and-gun title Gunstar Heroes and Housemarque's action-platformer Outland.

The latter deserves a special shout-out. It's a neat twist on the iconic shoot-'em-up Ikaruga with light and dark projectiles that can be avoided by changing your character's state. Not enough people gave it a chance or even knew about it in 2011, though the game has thankfully since come to Steam.
