40 Mega Drive games for just over a fiver?

MD_ClassicsA couple of weeks back, we reported on the latest volume in Steam's Mega Drive Classic Collection. Well, for one week only you can get all four volumes for just £5.99!

 Well, you might be thinking that you already have all of these games on cartridge anyway (besides Alien Soldier because only three people in the whole world own that cartridge). You might also be thinking that you already have all of these on the numerous compilations available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PSP. You MIGHT also be thinking that you already have all of these games in a slightly "dodgy" form somewhere on your hard drive.

BUT - this is Steam we're talking about! The ultra-good innovator and saviour in the field of digital distribution! Here's forty (mostly) fantastic games, tweaked for optimal performance on your computer thing, and with achievements too. Yeah, we know how much you like your achievements. Online multiplayer too! Yeah, Max and Blaze patrolling the streets of rage, only Max and Blaze are on opposite sides of the planet at the same time. Exciting stuff. The point is, if you were to buy these games from Steam seperately, the whole lot would cost you £79.60. The offer here is just £5.99, so you'll be saving... £73.61!

It's pretty much an offer you can't refuse. Well, you're welcome to refuse it, but it's still a VERY generous offer, if only for Alien Soldier, Gunstar Heroes and Decap Attack alone. Get yourself along to Steam and get it downloaded, matey! You can also rest assured that every download goes in someway toward the funding of the Dreamcast 2, so there's that too.

Here's the full list of the games you'll be getting for around 15p each:

-Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
-Alien Soldier
-Alien Storm
-Altered Beast
-Bio-Hazard Battle
-Bonanza Bros.
-Columns III
-Comix Zone
-Crack Down
-Decap Attack
-Ecco the Dolphin
-Ecco Jr.
-Ecco: The Tides of Time
-ESWAT: City Under Siege
-Eternal Champions
-Fatal Labyrinth
-Gain Ground
-Galaxy Force II
-Golden Axe
-Golden Axe II
-Gunstar Heroes
-Kid Chameleon
-Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole
-Light Crusader
-Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi
-Shining Force
-Shining Force II
-Shining in the Darkness
-Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
-Space Harrier II
-Streets of Rage
-Streets of Rage II
-Super Thunder Blade

Cracking line up.

Man, that is awesome! But if I only own them digitally does it still count as part of the collection?

Wow, tempting. I don't have enough space to have my MD hooked up all the time so this would be a nice legal alternative.

bah, I just noticed we're missing 4 games from the bundle over here in Germany, probably due to age restrictions.... Decap Attack, Fatal Labyrinth, Flicky, Shadow Dancer. They also charge 6.99€ which is more than 5 quid, greedy!

Age restricted Flicky? I have no idea which version you're trying to play!

Great stuff - despite owning 95% of them already ive ordered it - for £5.99 it would have been rude not to :D

Just donated another £5.99 towards the Dreamcast 2. :lol:

I've been playing the collection for the last few hours. Of the games I've tired Ristar, the two Shinobies, Altered Beast and Collumns I've really enjoyed (actually, I'm enjoying Ristar so much I'm considering tracking down a physical copy). Virtual Fighter 2, Alex Kidd, Flicky and Gain Ground were a little rubbish. I remember Golden Axe and Space Harrier 2 being more enjoyable back in the day...

The other games I've either not had the change to play yet or already own in my collection.
