So, first Nintendo finally gives us a legit and legal Kaizo Mario Maker game, and now this. What a world we live in, huh?

I am okay with the Mario Maker game, since Nintendo makes money from it and promotes creativity. But SEGA does this? I'm not quite sure how to feel about this. Perhaps utterly dumbfounded would be a good state of being in this case.

*shrugs* Sonic romhacks are just as popular as Mario romhacks, so I guess they want to legitimize that and use that to promote sales on Steam, but what about the other games on their Mega Drive/Genesis collection? I don't think there's romhacks of those...
