Scott, I know those titles have already been released in Japan.  Not sure if they are headed our way.  Either way, I can live without them.  Definitely not the best choices.  I would not mind seeing Contra released either.

I guess there would be hope for Contra and Castlevania...Twin Bee was known as Stinger on the NES and is one heck of a game...also made by Konami.  So maybe they'll keep it going for series 3 and so on.  Their choices seem a little weird because I don't remember a lot of those games being that popular even back then

Exactly.  Especially Dig Dug ???  You can pick that one up on one of the Greatest Hit packs.  I also find it strange that with all the different Greatest Hit packs, that Nintendo has not had one of there own ???  Put DK, DKjr, DK3, Punchout, etc on a Nintendo Collection.  The Classic series they are releasing now just arent  emulated close enough to the arcade version IMO.

What I really want to see though is GameCube compilations of old school Nintendo/Super Nintendo games...exactly like the Mega Man disc that is coming out.


Nintendo sucks.  I don't think we'll ever see a big-ass compilation disc of Nintendo-brand games.  They're gonna milk these old games for all they're worth--e-reader, "Classic NES", and whatever comes next.  No need to release a compilation disc when people are more than willing to shell out for Mario or Zelda for the second, third, or fourth time.

Quote
I also am sad that the 2D side scroller went the way of the dodo :'(

On the contrary--2-D side-scrollers are still alive and well and living on the Game Boy Advance.  All of the old school Mario games have been re-released and have done phenomenally well on the GBA (although the f--kers still haven't produced a true, "new" Mario game yet).  The two Metroids have been great (much in the same vein of Super Metroid), and three different, top-down Zelda games have been released on the Game Boy over the years (Link's Awakening, and the Ocarina games).  Plus, a new, top-down Zelda game ("The Minish Cap") is set to be released for the GBA this year.  And there have been a few all-new, side-scrolling Castlevania games released too, all of which are supposed to be pretty good.

But yeah, side-scrolling games are all but dead on the traditional home consoles.  I think a Contra game was released for the PS2 a couple of years ago which was supposed to be a pseudo-side-scroller, and Viewtiful Joe was released last year for the 'Cube, which if I'm not mistaken is a side-scroller, too.

If you want to play the old-school side-scrollers on your GameCube, you could always go out and get a Game Boy Player, which'll let you play all of those GBA games through your 'Cube. . .  :)

Getting you one of these to go along with your NES Belt:
