Deathspank, Bejeweled 3 now Xbox One backwards compatible

Gatling Gears, too.

Three more Xbox 360 games are now playable for free on Xbox One, via the console's backwards compatibility service.


Those three are the delightfully-named DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, Gatling Gears and Bejeweled 3.

I enjoyed Gatling Gears back in the day - it's a top-down shooter full of mechs. Bejeweled 3? Well it speaks for itself.

And then there's DeathSpank, the comedy action RPG designed by Ron Gilbert of Monkey Island fame. That's pretty good too.

Fun fact I found out today - in Australia, thongs mean sandals. The more you know.
