Momodora is a great indie metroidvania.
Castlevania Simphony of the night is backward compatible.
Recore is a really good 3d metroidvania.

I'd never thought of ReCore as a 3D Metroidvania game, but you are right. I thought it was a decent game that didn't quite live up to its potential. Ori was great due to its art style and fluid controls. Funny enough I don't care for Metroid or Castlevania. 

The Definitive edition of Recore  fix or improve a lots of the flaws the games has. 

With bigger budget and more work, Recore has the potencial to be a great IP.

yeah I looked through the TA list to remind me what kind of Metroidvania games I've played and ReCore appeared as well.

The Batman Arkham games are on there as well and it's kinda true!

When I have the time I might give the game a second playthrough if the definitive edition improved the game a lot. I am going to be busy with Ori and the Will of Wisps and Doom Eternal over the next few months.

I'm not sure I'd label the Batman Arkham as Metroidvania. A little inspiration? Sure, but that isn't the main genre for them.

That is nice looking. You could almost display it. I haven't bought a game in a store since...I can't even remember. I buy all my games digitally.

wtf happened to the My Games & Apps library? I haven't used my X1 in about 6 weeks and now I boot it up and everything that was cleat cut and convenient is now messed up and a chore to do anything.

I wouldn't call Recore a metroidvania game. Grinding orbs to open new territories is not the same as getting actual upgrades that open paths that can't be reached normally. It is actually the biggest problem with this game. It was supposed and expected by everyone to be a metroidvania, but they used this cheap lazy approach instead of thinking about creating some really interesting game mechanics and upgrades. Still the biggest disappointment for me this gen to this day. I initially bought Xbox One mainly for this game.

I have this since December as I'm in insider beta ring and I agree it is awful. Already posted here some time ago how I'm dissatisfied with them hiding "Updates" and "Queue" even further so it is hard to reach in a few clicks. It is no rocket science how to do this optimal way. Just look at how PS4 does this, copy the main idea, but make it better. "Updates" and "Queue" should be reachable from home screen IMO.
