Except for the GBA version it seems like something I'd definitely grab. The GBA one is a fucking waste considering the Namco Museum already on there has most that shit with Rally-X being the one newbie. Asswipes... shoulda done a DS version with the entire lot if they think GBA couldn't handle it.

I'd love to play a version with Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, Bosconian, Xevious, Rolling Thunder, and Rally-X.

That'd be worth $30!

no. fuck this. don't buy this. all of these games have been rereleased before in the namco museum series in the US (with the only exception being rolling thunder), and half the games on the list have been rereleased dozens of times in various forms over the years.

stop giving namco money for this lazy bullshit. taito's announced collection has raised the bar with 30 excellent, mostly modern games in one collection - accept nothing lower than these new standards.

Agreed and oddly same with Midway now that they got a new management team of non-morons going at it finally after many years of debt. Those $20 arcade packages they've done and will be doing (3rd coming just racers and top notch stuff) are excellent. That first pack was like 24 games, the 2nd a bit less, and the 3rd is smaller but it's like Hydro THunder, various Rush games, STUN Runner, and more.

Namco is pulling a fast one and Rolling Thunder I can live with on my NES as it's nicely done enough there.

and I already have Encore on Playstation, so I already have a decent home version of Rolling Thunder :D

Those Taito packs are fucking mindblowingly badass.
