The lights are on

Yeah Boy!! It's like the 80's and I am back at the roller rink LOL. Definitely getting this :P
Holy Hell I am all over this
Pass. I bought the Sega version of this thinking I'd play it all the time and only spent about an hour total on it. I forget I even have it, tho it is nice to play games I grew up with...ahhh dang I think I want this now haha
Until I see all of the games, I'm gonna PASS.
I'm old school, use to spend hours at "The Tilt" in Ford City, "Aladins Castle" in Chicago Ridge Mall, "Games Gallery" in Evergreen Plazza, "North Pier Arcade" downtown Chi, the 7-11 on 119th, The bowling alley on 111th, and every minature golf course the cta or pace bus traveled to on the South Side as far South as Madison Mall in the heights. I respect the Arcade games of the 80s, but how long are publishers going to ignore the 90s? Konomi, Midway, and Data East to name a few are sitting on a gold mine. I could name 100s of Arcade games from the 90s that are slept on by industry talent and fans that could lead to different takes of popular genres. Some Arcade games from the 90s could make a killing on cell phones with minor updates.
No list of the games on the disk? Lame.
I love these collections like this. Definitely picking it up.
Rampage: World Tour and I'm in.
hd? or postage size screen with borders?
I think I own all of these games in one way or another (probably multiple times for some of them), but since I am stupid, gullible, and a complete sucker I will probably buy this too... *sigh*
If it has Sinistar, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY
I remember when they used to have these free online, then midway ran out of business...
Warrior needs food badly! I may have to pick this up for the xbox.
AH I LOVE RAMPAGE!
I am so excited to hear this as I loved the Midway collections from the PS2 days and would love to have these games again to play on my XBOX! I will definitely be buying a copy this Christmas.
"your wizard is hungry"
I saw Gauntlet I'm game!
Not bad, sounds pretty cool.
One disk for ps3, 30 for Xbox
I just scanned past the other titles involved, that image of Rampage told me all I need to know. I hope it has the sequel as well.
