I own 2 CRTS and I keep the smaller 21" permanently rotated for TATE shmups.

The Saturn has quite a few, as does the PS2 actually.

Re Saturn Bomberman - i'd say it's more than quite good....:)
I think it's up there with the best versions of that game.

Smack talk!!  :)

Maybe we could start up a high score, best times area here....have a game of the month or maybe just have a set of tables for a small number of games moderated by the OP owner.

I'm a scrub level player. There are people who can go a lot faster.

Don't think so - but I could be wrong. I think the BIOS is different on JP GCs. You see evidence of that when playing a JPN game with a Freeloader - some dialogue boxes are just garbage instead of Japanese text.

That looks really cool.  Which controller did you use?

Standard pad.

Gamecube imports. I have a small number of these.

I'll kick off with the reason I bought a JP console. Mr Driller Drill Land. This won't work with the memory card when using a Freeloader so you need a JP console. It is almost worth it on its own.

Click here for a good overview of it.

Here's a replay of a run I recorded on Sega Rally. Far from my best performance; I hadn't played in a few months.

Any thoughts on this game today? I think it still plays great. This is the JP version but I have the PAL version too and it is the best PAL port of any game I have ever seen. If anything, the controls might be a tiny bit smoother. Miraculous what they did with the dpad. It works with the wheel and 3D controller but stick with the pad myself.

And here's a video of me playing the JP version with the JP-exclusive hidden character.

Bumpity Bump.

Saturn got a truly excellent port of Athlete Kings (aka Decathlete in JP)

It's a button basher in the tradition of Konami's Track & Field but it's got 10 events with a Decathlon mode and arcade mode (it was a Sega arcade release too). It got a follow up on Dreamcast and PS2 but the Saturn version is the best. Superb in 2 player mode. There's a sequel called Winter Heat which supports up to 4 players.

Here's me doing a playthrough of Decathlon mode.  The character I pick is a tribute to Daley Thompson; double Olympic champion.  :)

There's a PS1 game called Irritating Stick which is similar but I haven't played that.

Here's another N64 gem. Very niche but an interesting one nonetheless.

It's called Fire Electric Pen and is inspired by a Japanese gameshow. It's probably the hardest game on the system.

Here's a video of me completing the 1st level. Apologies for the ghetto recording, complete with reflections.

Good coverage there. I wonder how much the AV mod cost? Must have a look around for that.

The lack of onboard POKEY was a huge mistake.  :(   I have 7800 Donkey Kong and the sound is horrendous.

I'm not a handheld person but this multi-in-1 affair looks great. If the screen is nice and sharp I could be tempted. The NeoGeo Pocket and Lynx compatibilty would attract me more than anything else.

Got 57K over the weekend.  My wife was nagging me for a lift otherwise i might have broke 60K.......


More importantly, something feels as if it has clicked. I'm moving around a lot more  -vital not to be a sitting duck for ufos or homing missiles. Once you pass 30K if you hit a satellite while sitting still you are dead. You need to be moving away from them when they split into missiles.

Their speed past 40 and 50K is ridiculous - you simply have to start getting comfortable with the wraparound to stay away from them (even though they plot their paths using it too - AND ufos shoot wraparound shots).

I think saying the Gamecube is a failure is a bit strong. It made money at the end of the day. It remains one of my favourite consoles.
