You mean these?
Midway Arcade Treasures includes 24 games: Spy Hunter, Defender, Gauntlet, Joust, Paperboy, Rampage, Marble Madness, Robotron: 2084, Smash TV, Joust 2, Bubbles, RoadBlasters, Stargate (called Defender II in this and most other classic game packages for some mysterious reason), Moon Patrol, Blaster, Rampart, Sinistar, Super Sprint, 720, Toobin', Klax, Satan's Hollow, Vindicators, and Root Beer Tapper.
Yep--that's the one. Thanks for saving me the trouble. Although, from what I'm hearing, Moon Patrol
isn't included--they couldn't procure the rights to it or something.
I have most of those games already, but they're spread out in various other compilations for the PlayStation and Dreamcast. It'll be nice to have them all in one place.
And yeah, Stargate = Defender II. I'm not exactly sure of the history there, but those names have always been interchangable. Perhaps someone who's more familiar with the situation can shed some light on it. . .
Atari just put a new collection out as well, with 80 games, including the regular 12 or so arcade games in their original collection from a couple years ago, along with most/all of their old Atari 2600 games as well. Another must get for the vintage gaming afficionado!
For what system? PC? I heard recently that someone was doing a collection like that for the Game Boy Advance, but I want to say it was Activision, not Atari.
Oh, and there's also supposed to be an Intellivision compilation coming out soon, if it's not out already: Intellivision Lives
. I haven't really been keeping up with it, since I never had an Intellivision, but I think it's got around sixty games on it or something.
Now give me something with good ol' Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. and I'll be a happy man!
Bah (not to the games--they're great--but to the company). Nintendo's weird.
Nintendo though, did just release a Zelda Collection, consisting of the first two NES games, and the two N64 games. You have to jump through hoops to get it, though, apparently--either by buying a GameCube with the disc included, or by buying a couple of new games on their list, and registering them on their website, or by ordering a subscription to Nintendo Power
. Of course, I'm not interested in any of those options, but I really want the disc, so I'll probably wind up ordering a subscription to that lame-ass magazine. . .
