Did they talk about releasing more games ? I've heard the Steam version has S3K, this one doesn't, which is baffling.

S3K ? Can't say I ever heard of this game. It does have Sonic 1 though, which is a pretty good deal since you can't play it on a lot of platforms.
but for real can they hurry the fuck up and solve the legal bullshit with sonic 3

How many times has Sega re-released Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles without trouble? Sonic Jam, Sonic Mega Collection, Wii Virtual Console, Xbox Live Arcade, Sonic Classic Collection for DS, Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for 360/PS3. How were they able to re-release them those times but can't any more? Anyone got any background for me?

It's unclear exactly what's been going on, but Sonic 3 was rereleased without issue until about 2012 or so, and hasn't been rereleased since. There's definitely a clear line when it stopped. As best anybody can tell, it's something to do with potential or in-progress legal action of some sort. Notably, Sonic & Knuckles alone has been semi-unscathed, and has seen rereleases since then (notably on things like AtGames consoles which have S&K but not S3), albeit at a far lower rate than in the past or than 1 and 2.

Unfortunately, if there are legal issues, it really behooves them not to speak publicly about it, so it could be several years at a bare minimum before something is worked out such that Sonic 3 can be released again, if ever at all.

Adamis: The Steam version has it because the Steam version already had it. It's only new releases that are missing it.

People started discussing and finding actual connections between Sonic 3 and Michael Jackson until word got into the mainstream and all of a sudden nobody could talk about it and WHAT IS SONIC 3, HAVE THIS MEME INSTEAD.
