MY CHOICE JEFF?

Posted by ajamafalous

Wiki page it is.

Posted by MjHealy

Ah, Midway. What a memorable clusterfuck.

Posted by PsychoPenguin

Tapper AND Smash TV!? Did they compile this especially for Ryan and Jeff?

Posted by Seedofpower

Arcade Origins huh? You could probably burn through all those games in one sitting I bet so no thanks.

Posted by chilibean_3

Looks like a good selection to me.

Posted by Abendlaender

I would play a new Voxel-based Spyhunter game.....

Posted by RE_Player1

Fuck I used to love Tapper.

Posted by HelicopterSpy

I've noticed something about Spy Hunter. It's just not as much fun when you're not whipping around that awesome sci-fi wheel to knock dudes off the road. That said, this seems pretty great.

Posted by SupernormalStep

I would probably buy this JUST for Marble Madness.

Nostalgia is fun. The sound of the coin, and the 8-Bit graphics made my day.

Posted by DrLariat

Quick, someone make a comparison list with midway arcade treasures 1-2-3, I think I already have all of these games in a compilation format.

I basically clicked on this article to make sure this was already said. I'm glad someone was on it.

I was sad that Cal Extreme didn't have a functional Smash TV this year and I missed getting the XBL version, so I am straight buying this. Also Tapper, cause fucking Tapper son.

No 1941 or 1942? Disappointed, but I'll still get it.

I read the wiki while listening to the music.

I'm the winner!

Posted by crithon

oh goodie, not the 90s stuff, more of the early 80s era. Reminds me how fun it was.

Posted by masternater27

I'm probably in on this. Midway made some damn good arcade games.

Posted by Vod_Crack

@gonzotgreat23: Capcom.

Posted by Toxin066

But uh...no Gauntlet: Dark Legacy?

Edited by ShatterShock

No Paperboy and Roadblasters!? Profound sadness!!!

It's also missing Klax, Splat!, Vindicators and Blaster from Arcade Treasures 1, but replaces them with APB, Arch Rivals, Xenophobe, Wizard of Wor, Xybots, Pit Fighter, Championship Sprint, Cyberball 2072, Gauntlet 2 and Total Carnage from Arcade Treasures 2. Super Off-Road is from Arcade Treasures 3.

I have Arcade Treasures for Original XBox, which unfortunately isn't backwards compatible with the 360, so I'll probably be picking this up. Also: Warner Bros, if you're reading this, can I have Spy Hunter (2001) and SF Rush The Rock/2049 on XBLA plz? kthx.

But what does Hawkman have to say about this?

Posted by fauxical

This sounds like it would have been much better off on XBLA or PSN. Still it sounds like a pretty decent collection and I am looking forward to being able to play Smash TV at home (besides the SNES port).

Posted by ErikSchroder

Are you pumped for some Joust, Jeff?

Posted by billyhoush

I want a new Smash TV.

Posted by RetroVirus

Satan's Hollow, Robotron, and Sinistar: now THOSE are some game-ass games.

Posted by vaportra1l

If it's 20 bucks, it's mine.

Posted by SupberUber

Not really into the collections thing. I get a boatload of games, 2 maybe 3 will ever get any attention.

Posted by cthomer5000

This is actually a pretty decent looking collection, by disc collection standards. I'm so used to like 6 games on these things, that 30 for 30 bucks seems pretty great.

Posted by RandomAtom

This would have been perfect for a VITA title. Come on!

Posted by 12_Oz_Mouse

As much as I loved midway the games that I would want to play most, Smash TV & Robotron, I already got on xbla before they were taken down. But if I can find this for 10 bucks or less, a point most of these retail collections eventually reach, I will most likely pick it up. Also where is my Cruzin' USA and Rush?

Posted by nikopeters

Look at all those voxels!

Oh man, I sort of agree. Endless hours sitting in front of the TV playing Marble Madness with my best childhood friend.

Posted by coaxmetal

Huh I didn't realize Warner owned the rights to the midway name and trademark too

Posted by sopachuco13

How much? Is it disc-based or downloadable?

It better be cheap and downloadable! For evidence to why, just watch the old Game Room Quick Looks.

Posted by Generiko

Backbone is developing it? ehh no thanks

Posted by shaftwaxer

Everything you know is wrong.

Posted by Bacchus

You had me at Sinistar.

Posted by VIP0R

Isn't this what released on iOS several months ago? Wouldn't mind if it was as cheap! =]

Posted by Shadow71

I think this has more to do with almost having to release this stuff so that it doesn't become public domain and they can retain proper intellectual property rights of it more than anything.

Posted by DarkbeatDK

Midway.... They're no Taito.

Posted by MeatSim

If i can buy the game with arcade tokens then I am in.

Posted by SecondPersonShooter

No Mortal Kombat?

I played the fuck out of Midway Arcade Collection 2 on the original xbox, but in this new age of downloadable arcade titles, these collections seem more and more irrelevant.

However, if you could give me Midway Arcade Collection 2 with online play, I would be in.

Edited by BurningStarIV

I am probably alone in this, but I would get this for Rampart and Rampart alone. However I already have the first 2 Midway collections for the Gamecube, so unless this is 20 bucks or less, I would be hard pressed to buy all of these games again. Especially when quite a few of them don't hold up.

If I still had to download this entire collection, instead of being able to cherry pick the ones that I want, I still would rather this be a download only release. I know it seems lazy and lame, but its rare that I find myself itching to play games like these, however if it didnt require a disk to play, I would be a lot more likely to spend time every now and then sifting through that list.

Posted by Timnoldzim

I'm getting this one all right. Midway made some of the best arcade games ever. Here's hoping for Rampage: World Tour and some Mortal Kombat!

Posted by DS23

Marble Madness

Pit Fighter

Rampage

SOLD!

Posted by TPoppaPuff

Sounds pretty good but if it's $30 it's a bit too pricey for me. I could see $20-25, but not $30. Fun fact: my professor in one of my game design courses in Chicago a couple years back was actually the lead engineer on the original Spy Hunter.

Posted by Construc

Now if only this game came with 3D voxel versions of all these games.
