Both titles are way down the pecking order for HD remakes or even re-releases, far superior games have been lost to the evil mistress that is time, stuff like RISTAR,THUNDERFORCE 4, WORLD/CASTLE OF ILLUSION, ALIEN SOLDIER, STRIDER, DESERT STRIKE, SUNSET RIDERS etc are all ahead of these 2 games.... Young gamers need to play some of this stuff to appreciate the times they live in now and also to experience real heavyweights of the megadrive era, alex kidd,shinobi,sonic etc yeah yeah yeah all great and fine and dandy but look deeper and you will find much better stuff.
Nostalgia is great it really is but sometimes the word classic is used just a little too often in the world of retro for my liking, toejam although worthy of mention and praise struggles to make it to the top table.
Still not wanting to be bitter and mean im glad any retro stuff gets re-released, if i was sega and sat on such a well stocked back catalogue i would be releasing a hell of a lot more collections.
