No Sonic CD, no buy.

Yes I know that was Mega CD, but even so...

If I can pick up House of the Dead for about £25 like I did with Ghost Squad, I will be one happy camper.

Perfect pick up and play game, and one that non gaming friends can jump in on without loads of practice.

Really looking forward to Overkill. The wii needs more quirky,violent tongue in cheek action.

If you go to Asda you'll more than likely be able to pick up overkill for under £30.

I'm still torn about whether to buy the MD collection or not. Only 18 of the 40 games are new for me, since I have the rest in cartridge form for my actual Mega Drive... Would be nice to play them all in HD though, and get trophies in the process.

The absence of Sonic CD is a shame, and it's not looking like the Sonic & Knuckles lock-on games will be part of it. So if it's missing Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD, that's quite off-putting. They're my 2 favorite Sonic games.

Also, I'm assuming we're getting full-speed 60Hz versions of all these games? Need more info, Sega!

Don't think i'll pick up the Upteenth MD collection. Surely now is the time for sega to start unearthing saturn games. Virtua cop, the original House of the dead, Panza dragoon, sega rally. Now thats a collection i'd buy.

Or make a sequel to Comix Zone with the same bands doing the soundtrack. The Cd that came with the original cartridge rocked so hard it hurt.

I can but dream.

I could care less about any of the titles this article named. How about word on "Empire: Total War" which SEGA is publishing? It was supposed to be in stores for a Feb. 6th launch but has been said to have been pushed back to March.

I might buy it for the Shining Force and Phantasy Star games since I missed them first time. Agree with everyone else: no Sonic CD is a letdown.

I'd be happier to download some of the classic megadrive games I wanted rather than buy ANOTHER megdrive compilation. Good to see Streets of Rage on a compilation though.
