I completely missed out on buying it for XBLA, and as far as I can tell, nobody's selling codes for it anymore...I lucked out and got a Robotron code free with some MS points on Amazon, and I love Total Carnage...I just wish I could deliver the paper.
I wish Paper Boy was in this compilation.
I wish it wasn't done by Backbone, but you can't have everything.
Backbone does good work. Just look to any number of their XBLA ports. SotN in particular.
Trust me, I know their work, and it's awful. It has improved over time, yes, but it's an incredibly gradual improvement, and it's still not good. If you want to see what good work looks like pick up one of M2's ports. Their work hasn't improved over time because they got everything right the first time. (OK their netcode for the first run of Neo Geo games was terrible outside of Japan, but they fixed that on later releases)
