It's Sega Wednesday!

Yup, that’s right! Today Microsoft announced that no less than SIX classic Genesis titles are now on Xbox Live Arcade. The games are as follows:

Altered Beast
Comix Zone
Gunstar Heroes
Phantasy Star II
Shinobi (Arcade)
Sonic the Hedgehog 3

Take it from someone who knows, these games are gold!

  • Phantasy Star II is known as the second best Phantasy Star title.
  • Comix Zone is an underappreciated title with amazing artwork.
  • Gunstar Heroes is a rare shoot-em-up from another great developer, Treasure. Best played with a friend!
  • Shinobi is the arcade title that started an amazing series of ninja games.
  • Sonic 3 is the fastest and most colorful Sonic on the Genesis.
  • Altered Beast is the first game to come out on the Genesis and is a coop classic!
  • These are going for 400 MS points each. That’s $5 in real money.

    For only $5 for these classics with updated graphics, leaderboards, AND online multiplayer, this is practically a steal. Go check em out!
