It’s been a while since Sega released a batch of Mega Drive/Genesis games on Steam. For those looking to play some Genesis titles on their computers with a little bit more legality on their side, Sega’s preparing a batch of 11 games for launch… sometime.
While no specific date was given for their release, these 11 games will soon be available through Steam at a $2.99 nibble to the wallet.
- Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
- Bonanza Bros.
- Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
- Ecco Jr.
- Eternal Champions
- Galaxy Force II
- Kid Chameleon
- Sonic Spinball
- Super Thunder Blade
I give some applause to Sega for not immediately shipping out the usual suspects, as far as Sonic is concerned, though what is being released isn’t terribly fascinating either as they’re the more popular titles when Sega’s 16-bit days come to mind. Looking to pick any up?
Is it possible to drag the roms out of the Steam downloads for emulation use?
Kid chameleon FTW.
Yeah, is very nice! But is just 12 roms in a good program to me. Anybody could get this with out paying.
Didn’t we clarify that these are lumps of shit that cost too much?
As far as Sega is concerned, this is a cheap project that is guaranteed to bring in revenue with minimal sales, even if all of these games can be easily downloaded.
Don’t mean to be thick, but what is Steam?
Think Xbox Live but for PCs and Macs. You can purchase and download PC games, have friends lists, achievements, set up your own servers for games…
