Agreed, Rampage was great stuff
Hopefully they could add Xbox Live Coop to it, but I guess regular couch coop would be nice too.

Hmmm, so that's why they pulled Gauntlet, Defender, Joust, etc, from the marketplace.

I bet the Smash TV achievement is glitched.

Looks WICKED easy.

@3 No they pulled them back in the day because Midway was still a company, and then they folded and all Midway property was pulled.

Achievements in each of the 31 games. Excellent!

Toobin' and Wizard of Wor are two favourites of mine. Had the latter on a C64 cartridge.

This is a sweet deal. I really liked rampage on the N64. At least it's a new achievement list. Similar to what they did with sega collection disc.

I was hoping for some tougher achievements here so I could show off some retro style, just like defender, tapper etc on the arcade. still a day one buy for me though.

May wait for a price drop (still too busy with Borderlands 2) but am absolutely going to pick this title up. Looks like a great compilation.

Excellent collection, Day One purchase.

Sold on just Xenophobe and Wizard Of Wor. The rest is a real nice bonus.

@#14: Wait for a price drop? It's only $30 and comes with 30 classic games.

Spy Hunter is the game that I most love from this list. Looks like a good compilation to get. But...this is also why Game Room wasn't going to be succesful. They want to put these compilations on disc rather than Game Room. This and the Sega Genesis Collection should have been in Game Room. (as well as many other companies but that's another story entirely)

Speaking of origins...I asked mommy what my origin was. She was drunk and decided to beat me senseless. I guess my origin was very bad. Oh well.

Yeah I think Game Room kinda flopped, there'll probably a better platform for that sort of thing Next-gen I could imagine.
