SEGA classics, eh? Who can complain about HD tweaked, networked playable SEGA classics? Only some kind of nostalgiaphobe with no sense of fun. So, hurrah for the following coming to XBox Live Arcade:
Altered Beast: Greek mythology, fighting the undead, general carnage.
Shinobi: Notable Ninja battler that you either love or you really don't care too much for at all.
Comix Zone: what with the popularity of comics/graphics novels transferring to movies and mainstream culture, your chance to be Sketch Turner in game that includes comicesque level design seems like a bloody good idea.
Phantasy Star 2: Of course... the follow-up to, no we're not going to patronise you. It's an RPG, a classic one.
And onto two characters who was once so beloved (or behated), Sonic... and Knuckles.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3: Welcome Knuckles... yes, the echidna appears for the first time.
Sonic and Knuckles: Yes, the first time you get to play as Knuckles.
But let's not forget PlayStation Network, both it and XBLA will be getting:
Gunstar Heroes: The side-scrolling shooter that you either love or don't love so much - with its network play.
Make note on the network front that Phantasy Star II, Shinobi and Comix Zone don't have it.
