    Meh, I never liked Sega much. But anyway, I bet that this is good news for a lot of people.

    EDIT: 600th post!

    GG Shinobi wasn't bad, IIRC.

    And Sonic & Tails 2 can't be....y'know....horrible...right?

    Awesome. You know, the Game Gear was always overlooked, even though it was very powerful for it's time. Well hey, at least it has something to relate to in battery life. ZING!

    Sonic Drift 2 wasn't that bad, and I'm sure Sonic & Tails 2 will be good. I wonder if the Game Gear Mega Man games will be ported over. Then it'll have something to relate to with lots of ports. OH MAN I'M GOOD!

    But really though, this is good news. Maybe it'll give more people a chance to see the GG's true potential.

    I never played the Game Gear in it's heyday but I've played a few games recently and they're sorta ho hum. I'm sure a Game Gear kid would say the same about Game Boy games though.

    Great, another opportunity for people to diss the 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog, which was a pretty damn good game and is unfairly underrated, everyone did it when the Master System version came out on the Wii, the GG version 90% the same game.

    I don't know much of the GG games library, but I know the Sonic games are quite solid (except Labirynth and perhaps Spinball).

    I still have my Sega Gamegear, along with Sonic the Hedgehog. Only problem with it was that it ate batteries for breakfast and you literally had to carry around a 48 pack of batteries if you wanted to play it on the go. It would have been a great device if it wasn't a battery guzzler and so effing big, which is essentially what killed it.

    Nice lineup. I guess they'll only release portable games on the 3DS VC, trying to keep home games at home and portable games portable.

    Sonic and Tails 2 was not horrible, it was just a bit rushed as far as the final product goes.

    SEGA if this your 'gift' to us Sonic fans for the 20th Anniversity then you better start stepping your game up PRONTO!

    I`d much rather see Sonic Chaos then Sonic Triple Trouble... Still nice that they`ve ad GameGear games to VC. Hopefully we`ll see GBA games eventually as well.

    Most definitely, we've got like 3 pretty good Sonic Advance games if people really want Sonic and some other Sega games. Plus if a GBA VC does happen, the big question will be Mother 3.

    The only game gear games I look back fondly on were Ecco and Sonic. Hopefully they bring those orders. Id be more impressed if they stop emulation randomly and force you to play a "insert new batteries" mini game!

    Why is people so concern about Mother 3?! It must be as big as FF if I didn't play it before. Then again, where's Mother and Mother 2?

    No, but the 3D Classics Nintendo talked a little about at GDC will be. For example, Link's Awakening and Super Mario Land. Those are going to be 3D Classics as opposed to 3DS VC games.

    This is the ONLY good game I remember playing on the Game Gear (granted, I hardly touched the GG at all... [​IMG] )
