Cats are always aloof. It's just their nature. I still love you anyway, despite my bad behavior.

In other news, I am really excited about Microsoft bringing backward compatibility to a limited number of original XBox games this fall. Of the initial curated list of releases they have planned, I will be picking up digital editions as they release of: Morrowind, Jade Empire & KOTOR!

I never did finish Morrowind nor play either of its expansions. I was kind of tired of it after more than a hundred hours of exploration, various fun mods, carefully pulling the Vivec Treasury guards one by one and killing them so I could loot all the glass armor and other goodies there and more. It will be great fun to go back there and see the main quest through as well as the expansions. I really loved the game. Likewise, I enjoyed Jade Empire very much along with KOTOR. In each case I took the nice guy path but have wanted to revisit them to see how the mean guys live. I'm not sure what if anything else from that era would float my boat but those are really good ones for me.

The large selection of last generation games that run on the XBox One is a big plus to me also. I'm planning to settle in and play Oblivion GoTY starting tonight. I have been meaning to play it for ages and I am glad now that I never got to it because I so love being lazy while saving worlds from the comfort of my couch.

Backwards compatibility on Xbox One is a really fantastic feature. I donít expect many people actually use it, but it is really great knowing that your game collection moves forward with you. Backwards compatibility has always been one of PC gamings best features in my opinion. Nice to see it moving onto consoles as well.
