Ech, yeah, no, most of this stuff was already released in the PS2 Ultimate Genesis release a year or so ago. Shovelware at its finest, imho. Especially considering long as you don't want a couple of those titles like E-SWAT, Streets of Rage, and the Shining series (most available elsewhere anyway) you can get that PS2 version for dirt cheap.

I believe you can download it for the Wii, I may be mistaken but I remember hearing something about it. I love the alex kidd games..that and wonder boy in monster land..I had great itmes with those games.

Well, since I never bought any of the previous compilations, I might just bite on this one.

 

Kinda in the same boat, I don't have any compilations right now.

 

I believe I sold the Sonic Mega Collection disc we had for the GC, and I haven't had a disc with Shining Force 1/2 on it since the Dreamcast, and I love me some Streets of Rage multiplayer, so I might pick this up when I can get a deal on it.

I'm probly getting it for the Shining Force Series and Streets of Rage

 

I missed out on the last compilations and they're not available at most of the local retailers that I've checked, so it's still worth it for me since there's like 10-15 or so titles on there I don't have in any form (even if I have some of them 2-3x over)

Looks like a decent collection, but I'm surprised that Sonic CD isn't included.

Yeah, I think it was on one of the previous Gamecube or XBOX collections.

 

Perhaps their "HD Emulator" is not compatible with SegaCD titles?

 

Having a Sonic collection without Sonic CD is like packaging the Star Wars films without The Empire Strikes Back.

 

Sonic BOOOOOOOM Sonic BOOM Sonic BOOOOOOOOOM

*rocks out*

It's just the same sprite art with a scaling/filtering algorithm applied much like a typical PC emulator would allow you to do. It results in a fucked up smeared look that I've actually grown to detest over time. It's the same type of "Upgraded for Hi-Def" you see on any of the Sega releases on XBLA currently. The first thing I do is disable that nonsense and go right back to the original sprites.

 

You can see a trailer for how these "upgrades" will look right here:

(about the 1:14 second mark)

Well, if you have anything other than a 720p display, like me, mine is 1080p, then that means that the software will scale it to 720p and then my Xbox would scale it to 1080p from there. Why not just go directly from 480p to 1080p. That sounds obviously better. And the Xbox probably scales better from 480p to 720p anyway than software can do.

I had the same reaction to the "improved" sprites in Castlevania: SOTN on XBLA. I liked the original better.
