I just got connected to X-Box live and I know the 360 is backwards compatible with some games, the question is, is the Live update I downloaded the 'software' that enables me to play my old games on the 360, or do I have to get emulator software for each individual game.

I've noticed that a few of my games are missing, does anyone know if they will be made available, namely The Warriors and the two Mechassault games.

BC is the least of their problems. Peter Moore promised a lot but then a while ago announced that they'll be putting that on the back burner because so many great games are coming out. So don't hope for any more games and here's the list of current BC games (and if you just got your 360 the downloads were for BC and software update):

On a per game basis but the downloads are swift so its no worry.

The warriors is coming, rest assured.
