Gonna give the Astropop demo a whirl later today. I've been curious about it but the positive feedback here gave me an extra push. I'm not a fan of most popcap games, but this one catches my eye a bit more than the others.

I guess i'm the ugliest one here and cainaiac is the sexiest, damn.

 

Hey i just realized canniac bruh has my post in his sig, nice!

I'd rather have the Midway games as downloads. Sucks to have to put a disc in to play Smash TV. But I might buy it, as they have some great classic games.

OK How is the original zuma? I saw there was a deal on raptr for a free pc popcap game so i had to play the zumas revenge demo. And i had a lot of fun with it! The demo was very fun for that kind of game and it lasted really long.

my question is, i see ZUMA is only $2.50. is it worth buying, or should i just keep the demo around? because honestly, the demo lets you play through 2 whole levels, i feel like it took a good 15 or so minutes to play through, and i feel like that's about as long as i would ever want to play ZUMA anyways. so i ask you friends; is the retail version of the first ZUMA game worth the points, or was what i witnessed in the zumas revenge demo pretty much all there is to the game? if you could play multiplayer i'd be sold but i'm kinda stingy on putting more junk in 'my games' as i already have a lot of games

also what about bejeweled blitz? seems like a no brainer for $2 after points discount but just making sure there isn't anything wrong with this version seems like most people are buying 3, but its just bejeweled i wouldnt pay more than a double stackers worth of money for it

The original Zuma is hard as hell. You can buy a lot of frustration for $2.50 if that's what you're looking for. I would skip it and pick up the sequel when it goes on sale. I have both and Revenge is infinitely more playable.

Bejeweled Blitz is a waste. Pick up any other Bejeweled game and you'll be far better off.

Zuma is crazy hard! I will agree that Zuma's Revenge is the better game of the two. You can check out my review if you want.

I also liked Bejeweled 3 too. Enough to get 200/200. Blitz seemed to be short burst of the game so it feel incomplete to me. I'd rather play the game instead of playing against the timer.

The original Zuma is really not that hard. I mean it gets challenging towards the end like any game should, but I was never that frustrated. My wife and I were addicted to it for awhile and it was really satisfying when you beat it. There are a lot of stages too. So you will already have gotten a few hours of enjoyment out of it before you hit the more difficult sections. I would say its a no brainer at $2.50, especially if you enjoyed the demo.

Sega games go on sale frequently, I expect a couple of those collections to drop in price fairly soon. I'm looking forward to the Monster World one.

For anyone who is interested in Midway delisted games, disc compilation is coming in November.

smash tv and robotron are a great start for that collection! If it get's a US port, I'm definitely in!

Which newer releases? Nights was a Saturn game. I doubt Sega would put a Sonic game in a DC collection since they tend to sell well on their own.

Yeah, give it a few more months, & I'm sure Sega will put those Vintage Collections on sale sometime. They do so many downloadable sales, you can pretty much guarantee if it's a XBLA/PSN game, it's been/will be on sale.

Not sure on another Dreamcast Collection. NiGHTS is a Saturn game, which wouldn't work, though maybe they could have JSR, SA2, Nights, & Daytona and call it something like Dreamcast & Saturn Collection.

Sonic Adventure was part of the Dreamcast Collection with Sega Bass Fishing, Crazy Taxi, & Space Channel 5 Part 2 (speaking of which, when's the original gonna be on XBLA/PSN?)

Agreed, I have always wanted to play the Monster World games. Played them a few times as a kid and always wanted to dig deeper.

Really hope that Midway disc comes to the US. I already bought Robotron from someone on another forum, but Smash TV alone would be awesome. Other possibilities (other games once available and now removed) include Gauntlet, Joust, Cyberball 2072, Defender, Paperboy, Tapper and UMK3 (unlikely with the horrible Arcade Kollection already available). Quite the list there.

Unrelated, but I added Feeding Frenzy 2 to my backlog just now. Have 200/200 on the first and am looking forward to plowing through the 2nd one when I hit my backlog hard next year. I think I finally own all the PopCap games I have any interest in. (FF 1 and 2, PvZ, Heavy Weapon and Astro Pop).

all i care about is toejam and earl. ill buy nights day 1 but i wont buy sonic until it goes on sale OR if that battle mode dlc works in online multiplayer ill get it day 1 but i doubt they would be unlazy enough to add a feature, they didn't for jet set. jet set will be nice, but i hope tj & e comes out soon, the achievements leaked and that's all i've seen but i think that usually means thegame is pretty much ready

Unlikely. Unlike Part 2 the backgrounds in that game aren't rendered in real time, they're FMVs, and if you try to play Part 1 on an HDTV you will see that it looks like complete ass. Porting the game to high resolution would require actually remaking those FMV movies from the ground up.

Hi Guys....please forgive the ignorance demonstrated in this post.
Is it possible for me to buy a downlaod xbxo 360 code--or something--from a CAG user for Smash TV on XBLA to use under my profile?
I realize you no longer can buy Smash TV and other Midway games but the recent discussion on the compilation disc got me thinking.


If so, I'm interested. Please PM me and we can work something out.

Thanks,

Ahh, so that's why. I was among the many wondering why Sega went right for the sequel when it was originally announced. Oh well, guess I'll have to find a cheap PS2 version or something.

Now I just hope that Skies of Arcadia makes it, considering they renewed the trademark for it earlier this month (though they might've just done it to secure the rights).
