    Could just be they are refreshing just to put them on Virtual Console/XBLA/PSN but I would love to see a modern Road Rash as long as they dont go "street" with it like the NFS games. Sure a couple of years back I would have shivered to think that EA were going to make new additions but in the last year they have improved massively, even the Wii version of Need For Speed sounds like great game.

    No Strike games=serious fail

    Edit: Wing Commander is really good though.

    I dont think the Strike series would work as well as a modern game to be honest.

    I'll be more than happy to see a new game but done in the old style though.

    Wing Commander series yau! Let's just hope they make a proper game with storyline, or even remake one of the old games would do. Not like that daft arena fighter games that they did for Xbox Live.

    Is Dungeon Keeper among those?
    I have some great memories of Road Rash too.

    Here's hoping for a DS version of Road Rash and Wing Commander. Lump some bikers and blast some kitties! WOOT!

    I have a strange feeling though that such a thing will NOT happen. Watch it be something like their "Classic Series" regurgitation's where they throw a bunch of old titles together (never mind if they're too old for current PC's [​IMG] ) and sell them as one package. We all know they've done that before.

    Still, RR and WC would do well on the DS I think. Especially since we don't really have a good version of Road Rash for the DS. The emu's won't play the Genesis versions of RR correctly and the GBA version is somewhat lacking. WC could be made on ANY system and it would sell since we've had a severe lack of that type of game for a long time.
