There is no chance of it, but I'd like to see Shadowrun get some love.

Also Gauntlet IV and an English release of Vixen 357, since we're purely in the realm of fantasy. I guess I'm just gonna have to go with the Super Fighter Team release of that last one.

Haven't completed it yet, but I love what I have played of it so far. It was so ahead of its time with how open the world and mission structure was. I loved doing all the side quests and then choosing how to tackle the main missions. I'll have to start a new game some time.

I never understood the matrix hacking stuff though.

The NES and SNES Classic Minis didn’t really have much in the way of surprises. We’re already getting more deviation from Sega’s norm than Nintendo gave us from their own. It is true that Nintendo has a stronger first party library, but I think Sega’s moves with this unit are proving meaningful to try and address that. They are using third party titles well to supplement their own gaps.

I'm glad it's getting more games too. 40 is a nice amount :)

I always thought the SNES Mini only having 21 games was a bit stingy, but I know Nintendo hate to be seen as devaluing their own games.

I'll definitely get this system but still too much of the same old, same old. How many times do we need Altered Beast or Ecco The Dolphin?

Zombies Ate My Neighbors
Road Rash Series
Strike Series
Mutant League Football
Shadowrun
Liberty or Death
Romance of the Three Kingdoms
Sonic and Knuckles

Games like Shadowrun need a real, legal copy to play since they rely on save batteries that are almost 30 years old by now.

I actually wonder how many times I technically own it at this stage. I already owned it at least 2 or 3 times on the Mega Drive before all the various collections started coming out on future consoles. I don't even like the bloody game. Does anyone actually like it?

I don't think Sega could have gotten away with only 20 games either, especially with all of the other collection options available.

Somebody at Sega must like it...they're going to make sure we have it. It's just taking up one of the 40 spots.

Someone keeps commanding that game to rise from its grave. :wink:

Seems more like one of those inclusions that's more about completion, as it was a pack-in game for the system early on (in the US at least).
