Is there anything better than classic co-op gaming from the awesome consoles of yesteryear? How about CHEAP classic co-op gaming from the awesome consoles of yesteryear ON YOUR PC? A new collection of Genesis gems (no, not Columns) is now available through digital download services. It's a tremendous bargain, featuring 10 games for the quite low price of $7.50 (on Steam). Included in the set of games are co-op greats Gunstar Heroes, Streets of Rage and its sequel, and a title I am less familiar with, Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair.
When I was growing up, I was your stereotypical Nintendo Kid. Sure, I knew of the Sega systems and I had played them from time to time, but I never owned any of their systems aside from a pair of Game Gears that a well-meaning grandparent sent my brother and I for Christmas. Knowing this, you would also be able to extrapolate that I grew up playing Contra, the seminal co-op shooter we all know, love and memorized the Konami code for. Why am I bringing up Contra in this review? The reason is simple: Gunstar Heroes ruined Contra for me. The very first time I played this at a friend's house, I knew the game had changed. I couldn't go home again.
Ladies and gentlemen, the intertubes are clogged. They are completely filled with bullets and bosses from Gunstar Heroes. All the digital Drain-O in the world couldn't save it either, at least, on the PlayStation 3.
Just a friendly reminder that the two player co-op Gunstar Heroes hits the Xbox Live Arcade today for 400 . The game will launch on the PlayStation Network tomorrow. Gunstar Heroes features enhanced graphics as well as online and local co-op play.
