The Sega Saturn Thread
« on: May 17, 2012, 17:11:15 PM »

So the Sega Saturn eh? Who else here chose one over the PlayStation back in the day and still prefers it?

I love the big black box it's easliy one of my favourite consoles and since I started collecting the Japanese titles that never came out here I am discovering a whole new side to it. Sega really missed a trick by not getting more games out in the west.

This is my latest purchase:


I never knew there was another Bubble Bobble sequel so I was both amazed and excited when I saw this title and promptly snapped it up!

I will give my thoughts once I have given it a good play

Pretty good deal, they are all good games!

I finally got round to playing both Blazing Tornados and Bubble Symphony, they are both excellent games especially the latter one. I really need to start putting up some Saturn reviews on here.

My brother just got me Capcom Generations 1 for my birthday. It has 1942, 1943 and some sort of extra version of 1943 which is bloody excellent.

Real nice slice of retro shooting action on a 32-bit console:

I absolutely adored my Saturn when  I finally got one on my 16th Bday in 1998, I got loaded, Panzer Dragoon Saga demo disc, bunch of other bits and absolutely fell in love! I always prefered the Saturn to Playstation because it was just more fun and more original, and plus I was a massive Sega nut and couldn't have afforded the PS1 if I wanted one.

I did end up getting a PS1 but never got more than 10 games for it whereas my Saturn collection is one of my favourites; games like Burning Rangers, Deep Fear, Nights, Steep Slope Sliders, PDS, Dragon Force, Dark Saviour, Street Fighter Alpha 1+2... serious love for the Saturn over here lol

I only wish I'd gotten one when it came out instead of in its last year of production :(

In honour of the football today I decieded to revisit an old favourite of mine, Olympic Soccer. It really is totally unlike any other footy game and its quite hard to describe how this game is both shit and great at the same time  :o

It's really fast moving and you can score some great goals but the commentry is just hilarious (in a bad way) and the goalies dive like salmon flying across the goal!

No, sadly it was only released in Japan. Though, as you can probably see, the whole game is in English.

That is actually one of the few PAL Saturn games I don't have, I've bid on it a few times and lost out.
