Two things we can say about Sega Genesis games: they were really hard by today's standards, and many of them were also great games. Sonic, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, all still worth playing (though many would prefer the arcade version of Golden Axe available on XBLA). PC gamers have lots of options for playing 16-bit Sega games, chief among them (illegal) emulation and legal emulation, i.e. paying for them. The latter crowd will appreciate the sale going on at a place caled DotEmu then. They've bundled 45 Sega Genesis games at the super-low price of $10 for the next few days. Head past the break for the full list.

This Week in Co-Op - Golden Axe: Damn those GnomesNick Puleo

For this edition of This Week in Co-Op, Nick and I decided to play something a little more old school. Luckily for us, Sega has been pumping out some classic vintage collections. Golden Axe is one of my all time favorite arcade titles, so we decided to dive into the sword an sorcery adventure. I don't know what's aged worse, me or the game. Thank god for unlimited continues.

SEGA's other beat-em-series, Golden Axe, comes to XBLA in this three-game collection. Magic, mounts, and more make these fantasy brawlers memorable. But how's the co-op, and do the SEGA Vintage Collection extras warrant another purchase?

This Wednesday, the single-player Monster World Collection and Alex Kidd & Co. Collection debut at 800 Microsoft Points a piece. On May 30, they will be followed by Golden Axe Collection and Streets of Rage Collection for the same price.

Last month we reported on a rumor that the Golden Axe and Streets of Rage series would be getting new Xbox Live Arcade releases. Those rumors have been all but officially confirmed by Xbox.com product pages for both collections, which showed up and then vanished yesterday. Thankfully a NeoGAF user captured the product descriptions and screenshots for both releases, which are titled SEGA Vintage Collection: Golden Axe and SEGA Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage.

They say that three is a magic number, but do you know what real magic is?  Playing as a boxing Kangaroo.  This dream is looking like a reality for XBLA users as PEGI have rated some titles under the banner SEGA Vintage Collections which include pugilistic marsupials in the form of Streets of Rage 3.  Also on offer are the co-op friendly titles Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and Golden Axe 3.

The titles are rolling on yet another episode of The Simpsons, but this time it is not one of the tired antics of the past few years, but a classic from the past; The Simpsons Arcade.

If you are a member of the Playstation Plus scheme you can download the game for free from the 7th February. As for owners of Microsoft's gaming behemoth - no news yet on a release or pricing.

Generally, when it's time for a Video Edition of Co-Op Classics, we feature games we've previously covered. As the collection grows, however, we can branch off into other games that haven't been given much coverage on their own. Today, we revisit two entries from classic co-op franchises: the deep space R-Type shmups and the swords and sorcery Golden Axe brawlers.
