Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So, let's talk Sega Saturn.

    I've got a working copy of Saturn Bomberman, and a multi-tap...it's super-dooper fun. No, really.

    I hate Saturn threads. They make me sad.

    I sold my Saturn with 78 games, 2 controllers and gun on eBay for $520.

    I am SUCH an asshole.

    I learned my lesson, though - I'm holding onto my Dreamcast with almost as many games.

    There's one game I don't ever remember seeing anyone mention.

    Dark Savior. It's a spiritual sequel to Landstalker on the Genesis, and I remember Gamefan getting quite excited about it 9 (god has it been that long?) years ago. I never got a chance to play it outside of a Sears demo stand, but I had fun with it and I heard it was good. You may want to check that out.

    After Neo Rasa mentioned Iron Storm in another thread, I've been curious to play it.

    Good luck finding it for a decent price, though.


    One ebay auction has ALL THESE listed in ONE auction:

    virtual cop 2 solar eclipse galactic attack duke nukem 3d

    fighter mega mix darius gaiden golden axe die hard arcade

    Nba action NFL quarter back club 96 Hexen Robotica

    earth worm jim 2 quake battle monsters xmen children of the atom

    marvel superheroes iron storm resurrection ghen war

    dark legend panzer dragoon 2 area 51 maximum force

    last bronx Nba live 98 virtua cop NFL 97 clock work knight

    iron man x-o amok battle arena toshinden enemy zero

    die hard trilogy panzer dragoon



    Try and get X-Men versus Street Fighter maybe.

    Avoid "Scud: The Disposable Assassin" like the plague.

    You must PM me the link to this auction so none of these other suckers buy it.

    Some of those games are pretty lame, but a few of them are worthwhile.

    Guardian Heroes was awesome - two player mode was just superb. I can't really list any more that other people have already, but what about Fighting Vipers? I loved that game.

    My cousin has two Saturn's... with I don't know how many games. But he loves Burning Rangers.

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.

    I'll throw in a few recommendations:

    - Get a multitap

    - Get one of those nifty 4M thingies (I just bought one off Play-asia... should be here in 5 - 12 days...)

    - Three Dirty Dwarves. It's a brawler with a cool artistic style, is three players, and is just loads and loads of fun.

    - Saturn Bomberman. 10 player bomberman.

    - X-Men Children of the Atom. Excellent fighting game.

    - Fighters Megamix. Lots of fun.

    and then lots of other stuff

    The console for shmups, hands down. I think I've spent more on imports for my Saturn than I have combined for games on the current-gen systems I own.

    Batsugun
    Battle Garegga
    Donpachi
    Dodonpachi
    Guardian Force
    Kingdom Grandprix
    Rayforce
    Raystorm
    Radiant Silvergun
    Terra Diver
    Strikers 1945 II
    Cotton 2
    Darius Gaiden
    Gradius Deluxe
    Hyper Duel
    Sengoku Blade
    Thunderforce V
    Salamander Deluxe

    I got Radiant Silvergun for a steal at $100, near-mint. The game is great, but its nerd-cred value justified paying double what I'd usually dish out for a game.

    Wide stage allows for 10 players.

    4 at the start. Serena is unlocked after beating the game, and the Undead Hero is always your CPU companion.

    Wait until you see one of the 3 working copies of Saturn Bomberman and the Bomberman multi-tap.

    I got mine at www.sega-parts.com new for $30. They still have copies... now I just need some cheap multitaps and 7 more controllers and I'll be set. The Bomberman Multitap is probally really hard to find anymore.

    I just recently got a copy of House of the Dead. I need to calibrate my lightguns better the next time I try to play it though, as I did horribly. It does have the best instruction booklet ever written though.

    The reason I own a Saturn is Virtual On. I bought the twin sticks and everything... its bliss. I really want to track down the saturn to DC converter that allows the use of the twin sticks, because Virtual On: OT surpasses the original in many ways.

    - Astal: One of those great games nobody's ever heard of. A great 2D platformer that really flexed the Saturn's sprite-pushing muscle. Has incredible music, too.

    Hell yeah, Astal kicks ass. I want a Saturn just for this game.

    Mine is sitting in the closet cause I don't have enough room to hook it up to my TV. I'd either have to replace the GC, PS2, N64, DC, NES, or Genesis. I need like a second TV in here or something.

    You know what's a travesty?

    At EB and Gamestop, you can get N64 controllers. You can get old Playstation 1 controllers. You can get SNES and Genny controllers. You can even get NES controllers.

    You can't buy a damned Saturn controller. The refuse to even accept the things in trade.

    I've been berift of Radiant Silvergun for two years now. I'm going to have to Ebay a controller up, posthaste.

    The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides. -- Carl Sagan

    If you're in the southeast, Rhino deals in saturn stuff. That's actually where I picked mine up a few years ago. They had Zwei once too for cheap, I'm still kicking myself for not picking it up.

    Not like anyone can blame you. After the Genesis, Sega got really, really shitty at marketing stuff. The Saturn era of commercials are perhaps among some of the worst commercials ever created, for anything, in the history of time itself.

    Meanwhile, Sega hired Segata Sanshiro in Japan; making the Saturn a modest success for them.

    :roll:

    "Ordering" suggests there is a store that has the item in stock. If he got it off eBay or something, it's not "ordering". If he bought it from a small store or something, it's not one I'm likely to know, hence why I asked.
