    Beyond Oasis? Sign me up!
    Where be Landstalker, Eternal Champions and M.U.S.H.A?
    And if I had a PS3 or 360, I would definitely Pre-Order it.

    I feel your pain. I'm kinda miffed that there's no Mystic Defender or Revenge of Shinobi, Last Battle, Shadow Dancer, etc. I can only hope that this volume sells prettly good, so that more volumes will be released.

    And, hope beyond hope, I would shoot ****ing loads if Earthworm Jim and it's sequel were included. They weren't Sega games, of course, but the company no longer exists. Someone, somewhere, make it happen. :D

    I already have the old Sonic collection for the Xbox, but that list is too sweet to pass up. Good price, too!

    First I've heard of this...

    Have to say it's pretty damn tempting.

    There are some games that have no right to be in that collection (Flicky, Columns, Sonic 3D Blast, mainly).
    And I just realized the lack of Gunstar Heroes and Contra!

    I guess they can't put non-Sega games on it. Which sucks. A true ultimate collection would include all the great third party titles as well. :(

    Definitely a shame, it would have made the collection even better than it is now.
    Still can't get over some of the rare titles in there.

    Guys, note the *unlockable games coming soon* thing below the list.. there are probably other games that come as you play through, so don't get your knickers in a twist if they don't have the game you're looking for.. at least not yet.

    It's pretty cool. I played some games I never had, like Beyond Oasis and Sonic 3D blast. By hitting select(or back on 360, presumably)after starting one of the games, you can change the picture to widescreen and turn on a smoothing filter, which smooths out the pixels.

    I can see myself spending a lot of time with this. Pretty great collection, especially for the price($30).

    I don't think so. I'm not positive, but I think it just has old school multiplayer.
