This doesn't really strike me as something that needs Achievements, but rather something that has achievements in hopes to get sales. Also, those filters suck, and the fact that they're required is a sin against retro gaming. And yes, I know you can turn them off, but they're still butt ugly.

Oh, and if the co-op games aren't all online, forget it.

I'll have to keep my eyes on this. I wonder what the game will look like in HD.

Not too tough achievements. I'd prefer that in a game like this to some impossible feats like beat sonic without dying and such.

Fuck yeah! Glad they didn't take the Namco route and actually made new achievements for the games.

Now i can justify buying the xbla version of Sonic 3 when it comes out since this collection counts as one game :)

Quoted for truth.

Linkin: The Namco disc sucks for not even having a record of playing it :/

But if you buy Sonic 3 on XBLA, you're only buying half a game...technically.

Awesome.

I think I'll buy this through Gamefly.

It should probably be around $25 with the "Buy It Now" option, plus my additional 10% off.

Hell yeah.

I never saw what was so great about Sonic CD... S3&K is still the best to me.

Anyways, S3&K with achievements (hopefully) will be godly to me, I can't wait for that game alone on the 360.

The collection is awesome though, sucks that I bought all of the classic Sega games on the XBLA though...


As far as I'm concerned.. S3&K is the best platformer ever..

I only wish the graphics were redrawn in HD.. at least for the Sonic games.

A must buy for me.

I do wish Landstalker was on this, even though I own the Genesis cart and have it on Virtual Console.

I also wish the achievements were spread across more of the games.

The "play all arcade games" achievement kind of scares me. Not that I'm not happy with arcade games being included but I wanted Master System games as well. Maybe they'll still be there.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

The whole game is amazing.. I mean the two games alone are 8/10 or 9/10.. but combining them, and the whole Hyper Emeralds thing.. and all the characters.. and even the intertwining stories.. the different paths for different characters, different bosses. It's just... DAMN I WANT IT. I wish it was 1080p instead of 720p though.

Will be preordering this. $30 to relive much of my childhood is a no-brainer.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Free 360 game by completing 2 offers. If you don't believe it just give it a shot. I spent $4 to get Dead Space. $13 to get Madden 10. PM me if you need help.

Agree with you on the achievements.

That being said, I know this is going to eat up tons of gaming time for me. Looking forward to playing some actual good Shining Force and Phantasy Star games. With all the crap games Sega makes, I can't understand why they can't make decent follow ups for PS and SF. Would a traditional SF really sell that much worse than games like SF: EXA and Neo?

Is there a reason this hasn't made a collection recently? I know that S3&K was on an old PC CD collection a long while ago, but none near our present time. I guess Sega isn't trying to appeal to the hardcore crowd :(

I'd gladly pay 800-1200 points for S3&K with HARD achievements and HD.

WOW, what an amazing collection of games
I thought it would've been another one of those Sega collections again
damn was i wrong, this is worth a purchase day one

$30 is a steal, you would barely get 1/8th of these games on virtual console
and I would much rather turn on my 360 than that Wii
