    Ahhh Worms, how that brings back some memories.
    And the old jokes.

    Castelvania, Worms and possibly Paperboy for me.

    Defeinetly getting Alien Hominid of the points aren't ridiculous. Worms aswell. Reminds me of Earth Worm Jim for the Genesis for some reason.

    Expect all of these to be the 800 to 1200 point range. I would expect CastleVania to be 1200 just because of how dam good of a game it really is, if not a bit more.

    Are they all remakes or brand new games?

    Castlevania, Paperboy, and “Root” Beer Tapper get my immediate interest. Might do for a couple of the others too.

    Beware of retro goggles for Paperboy, it certainly wasent as good as I remembered it being when I did a revisit in the late 90s.

    I'm in for SOTN, never got round to playing a Castlevania game outside of the first GB one and this sounds like the best place to start.

    Worms is the roxxor, but not with joypads thanks.

    You can buy the Miday Arcade Classics for less than $10 which includes Paperboy and Rootbeer Tapper, as well as a bunch of other, much better games.

    I don't have a 360, but would you be able to play worms online against others? *faints at the prospect*

    Yup. But only if you have an Xbox Live Gold Membership. Silver members get nada.

    I finally finished near all of POR. Have Richet and Sisters done, just Mastering every sub ability now.

    And they finally released some Screenshots of SotN, looks just like I remember plaing it on my PS2 last week.

    And yes, Worms has Online, its the reason I want it. Minigolf is supposed to support 4 online, and I think your own Course Editor to use online.

    Other than Castlevania and Worms, I'm looking forward to the release of Double Dragon. Still my all time favorite beat 'em up arcade game.

    Double Dragon has aged hideously IMO, I was surprised at how slow paced and awkward it is compared to how I remembered it.

    Seriously. It's one of the best arcade collections you can get. Defender and Robotron FTW!
    Double Dragon is one of those weird cases where most of the console versions of the game end up being somehow better than the arcade original. Obviously the Atari 2600 version is an exception, though.
