    Looking forward to the Sega Collections. The only game I am not so fond of is Revenge of Shinobi. The rest I want!

    I'm with you and the other guy who mentioned this. Absolutely loved III and well... I had IV imported back at the time so, while it's a great addition to have it this way in general terms it's a loss for fans of the saga.

    They should have splitted the collection in two, maybe adding the original one and versions from the game gear, master system, solid extras, unlockable avatar stuff or themes, etc.

    Really tempted but with III (my fave) missing I'll wait till sales (like Mortal kombat collection did or the regular sega publisher sale that comes every year...

    If they are to make real profit just on bringing back old games I wonder why sega doesn't do it right and go CAPCOM's way: continue sagas in retro style (MEGAMAN 9 and 10) or propperly remake them (BIONIC COMANDO REARMED) instead of lacking compilations of ports...

    Bought and played those games when they first came out with (my then) young son. No desire to play them again. This is 2012 bring on the next gen.

    Waiting on the Golden Axe Collection :)

    Looking forward to Joy Ride Turbo. I will probably download the demo first, but can already see that I will unlock the full game not long after.
  • Posted on 22 May 12 at 18:23Permalink
    Joy Ride and Alex Kidd would both be nice but I think I will wait for a dotw - at least for Joy Ride. Shinobi alone almost makes the Kidd sale worth it.

    How is it that Joy Ride only has 200 achievement points!? Still worth a buy though.
