Lol. I had to bite on TMNT literally less than 24 hours ago for five bucks. Oh well.

Probably gonna pick up paperboy... and maybe gauntlet.

I can't believe I actually own every single one of those except Golden Axe. Ah well.

Most of them I got them for free and I don't think they are even worth the $3. TMNT is well worth it though.

I love Streets of Rage and Castle Crashers and last time I checked, TMNT was more simple than either of those. However, is TMNT more simple than say Final Fight?

Buy everything! QUICK!

Simpler. Control-wise, yes. There's just jump and attack.

As for difficulty... it's a shit-ton harder.

Nice, think I'll have to pick up TMNT for that price. Would be an awesome party game for me and a few friends that used to play the old 4-player arcade brawlers like X-men and Simpsons. Is there anything about the Live Arcade version to note? It has online multiplayer, right?

Edge the only annoying thing about TMNT on XBLA is that you have limited continues when playing online, so it's pretty tough to make it to the end. Continues are unlimited offline though.

I got Golden Axe, Gauntlet, and Paperboy.

I'm agonizing over Ms. Pac-Man cuz all I need is 30 points to get the full 200 in it, but is that worth 3 bucks?

great deal for Galaga and TMNT. Though I'm going to hold off of TMNT until the 3D version of Turtles in time is available in the marketplace!

All of these games are worth $3. I have mostly all of them and only needed Paperboy so I picked that up. Thanks!

Already have TMNT and Paperboy so I snatched up Galaga, Ms. Pacman, and Dig Dug. Have them on the Namco Museum disc but sometimes I get the urge to play it but am too lazy to go to the other room and dig the game out. $9 for laziness? I'm in.

well, I picked up the manco museum for 14.99 at gamestop during it's sale, so I have all the Namco titles.
I would like to try TMNT though. From what I remember, it's still ranked as one of the top 5 biggest selling Arcade titles.
