Neo Geo had the best edition of Road Rash, which I only got to play once in a games shop but later bought the same version on PC.

Yeah, that was very tempting too. Made the games far more affordable. One day I'll own an arcade cabinet and be done with it. It's not that much more expensive than buying retro consoles and games, I just need the space for it. And somewhere to hide it in case, y'know, people come round. Unless I have it running Pacman 90% of the time and say it's some kind of retro chic item.

Until you are so nude.

I wish. The cool kids had Neo Geos and then import SNESes. I had a Game Gear.

I had a game gear, it was really cool but ate batteries. I bought it to help pass the time on a camping trip. Ran out all my batteries on the first night and then never took it out of the bag again.

I did the same with my PSP. Bought it for a long coach journey and have barely played it since. They worth anything these days?

Take this and go.

My cousin had a Gamegear. It had crazy versions of SOR, where the characters had screen blitzing super moves. Not the police car special attack either, the characters themselves would do something nuts and wipe out everyone. I also recall a bug whereby one of the enemies would walk off screen and then never, ever come back, leaving you unable to move on. Easily the smartest guy in Mr. X's army I reckon.

It also had bizarre little robots that resembled something between daleks and bins, which would explode if you even accidentally grabbed them, taking off well over half of your health. Little bastards. It pleases me to see the love for Yoshi's Island and Quake. Both are fine games that look strange in a direct juxtaposition with each other. :yinyang: I've recently had a bash on Yoshi's Island, but now I've got a Quake urge. I've never really played the PC version. May have to do some scouting...

To be fair, JLM, a lot of those titles had identical or better versions on other platforms. And if you've never played the CD-ROM Highlander game on the Jaguar, you've not lived.

Saturn:

Worldwide Soccer 97


I had the ’98 version of that; I spent hours on it when I was supposed to be revising for my GCSEs. I remember that if you had a throw-in around the middle of the oppositions half you could do a deft throw and if it was timed right the receiving player could volley it straight at the goal, I scored loads that way, massively helped by the keepers being fairly dreadful. My mate always managed to score ridiculous swerving goals from close to the sideline. Another thing I remember is Jack Charlton coming out with the most bizarre non sequiturs on commentary.

Reading through this thread really makes me want play on my Saturn again; unfortunally a “friend” stole it a few years back. I’d love to play Guardian Heroes and Duke Nukem 3D again.

and exclusively owning a Saturn when the PS releases kept pouring out must have sucked too. I wouldn't know though. ;)


Believe me it did, and eventually I caved in and saved like made to get a Playstation, If I remember correctly it was Premier Manager 98 not coming out on the Saturn that finally broke me.

I moved from the Jaguar to a PS and immediately bought Tekken 2 and Gran Turismo for it. Talk about the promised land.

I didn't know, and would never have assumed, there was a Baku Baku Animal released on Saturn. I adored the Master System version for a short while via emulation. Flawed but strangely charming.

As mentioned in the What Play You thread I've purchased Broken Sword Trilogy for the PC. Since the first made the 50 I think its fitting I'm reunited with one of my favourite series ever.
