I didn't think Konami had anything to do with video games anymore.[/s] In all seriousness, it's good that this classic system is getting some love. It was mostly overlooked in the West back in the day, though it did okay in Japan, where it managed to beat the Mega Drive (though it still came in at a distant second behind the SNES). While it was never a mainstream hit, it was the most successful console not made by Atari, Nintendo, Sega, Sony, or MS, and it had a respectable library of content.

I used to own this console . it needs keith courage and devil crush.

Those would be good additions. Most people consider Devil's Crush to be superior to Alien Crush, and Keith Courage wasn't just a solid platformer, but was the pack-in game.
