I'll definitely get it at some point. Quite a lot of games on the list that I've never played.

I did the pre-order deal a few days ago. I was going to get this regardless. $10 is a great deal for a $30 game.

I'm not a "Battletoads guy", but I thought this was interesting and worth mentioning.

I don't know if anyone has pointed this out yet, but I was just looking at the box art for this and noticed that there happens to be a fairly large, high-res render of a Battletoad in there.

Strange that they would go to the trouble of creating an all-new asset like that (not to mention feature it so prominently) when the other games represented mostly seem to have their original assets displayed...

It's the arcade version of Battletoads. You get that and the NES version.

I imagine it will.

I don't think there will be any kind of online, though. And I think its the 64 version, not the HD version.

They've been marketing Battletoads the most of anything else with this collection, at least at Gamestop. Employees have that ask me about Battletoads pin, and the placeholder case they have for it is just a picture of the Battletoads logo.
