Is it worth buying? If so, what games are musts?

>> No.4609791

The ideal way is to own it since its release.
But if you're gonna jump late into the bandwagon, you can always look for some hayden james that aren't expensive, like BakuBaku, or Last Bronx.
Absolute musts for the system would be Nights, Panzer Dragoon II Zwei and Virtua Fighter 2, for starters.

Saturn Bomberman, Magical Drop 3, Sonic Jam, mother fucking RayForce (Galactic Attack), Fighters Megamix, and Sexy Parodius are some of my favorites that I've played.

meh, its mostly a weeb-fest, and u.s. titles are typically expensive. must haves are subjective, and whats objective is all of the ports being the best versions. like resident evil, for example, the best version is the saturn version, for its good amount of exclusive content. now, take my first sentence with a grain of salt, because im a western type gamer, and i still found a bunch of worthwhile titles for the saturn. deep fear comes to mind, and so does quake, but dont be confused about quake, its no pc port, its a ground-up recreation of quake with much improved lighting, so it can stand alone with its PC version.

japanese games are abundant and cheap, few are English friendly, but even fewer are worth playing. unless, again, you are some sort of mega weeb that took a vacation there just to buy used panties from a vending machine. im looking at you, mr langrisser is a must have saturn title, get the fuck outta here.

anyways, shit i forgot what i was going to wrap up with. just get a jap sat and a action replay 4m plus for the whole saturn package for less than the cost of a u.s. sat. even if you dont plan on getting too many jap sat games, the memory boost it gives is worth it alone. later games for the saturn take up more memory space than whats initially available on the console itself, like NHL 98, to make a save you have to have more memory then whats available to you. my bad for the redundancy there, im blunted.

It's almost impossible to find one that isn't scuffed or beat to shit, every good game costs about $100+, and there are only about 10 truly good games worth owning to begin with.

Nope, Model 2 has a board revision that prevents a handful of Sega Ages games from running properly (The Japanese solo releases, that is). Space Harrier and either Outrun or Power Drift cannot run properly, as the games utilized a trick that allowed the games to pull power from the audio processor.

Also, trying to throw this criticism back at the N64 is fucking retarded because unlike the Dreamcast controller you could use the d-pad to move and the analog stick to aim in every single shooter on the console, which is practically identical to dual analog controls. The Dreamcast controller had the analog stick and d-pad on the same side, meaning you had to do something retarded like use face buttons for aiming.

And i know I'm being bated at this point but for shits and giggles i looked through my email archive and I bought the replacement Saturn in 09, not the mid 00's like i thought.

If you didn't care you wouldn't respond. Most people here are underage. If not physically <18 then maybe a 20 something with a mental age of 12. There are common tells. For example someone calls $150 "several hundred dollars" or talks about seriously using the swap trick. The pattern repeats over and over so either you've been here since two summers ago telling the same stories or you're just one of the legion of slightly less underage parroting the same shit.

The fact that he was more mechanically minded does not preclude that he didn't help make fun games, his focus on have fluid, high framerates and increased focus on stage complexity very much factored into how good the golden era of ID games were.

>> No.4616835

>>4616828
Not him but I think the thing is that Carmack is basically a robo-autist savant that's amazing at developing technology but doesn't have a single clue when it comes to aesthetics. Carmack's skills as a developer were tempered by Romero's sense of style and design, that's why games like Doom and Hexen were so cool, and then later id games became forgettable generic trash like Doom 3 and Quake 4.

Didn't he single-handedly ruin the saturn port of doom? It was going to run at 60fps but with some affine texture warping, which he decided was unacceptable and blocked that build of the game from release. For some reason the PS1 port having that issue was just fine though.

I just had a kid. As a result of that i have been spending all of my free time at home. Since he sleeps alot i have time now to dust off some old consoles and play them. Historically I had avoided /v/ like the plague but i had hoped that since the board split up, maybe there would be some decent discusssion about retro games and not just mindless contrarian shit flinging. Turns out i was wrong. If you all want to spend money on modding 20 year old systems using garbage chink chips in order to save three seconds off of start up then be my guest. But I am here to tell you that the swap trick works fine. Maybe if I had played my Saturn every single day for the past ten years I would have problems by now but I didn't.

There's always somebody chimes in with one more title they wish were included. Maybe I should go through the archives, find them all, and make a part two. There just isn't room for very many games on these webm charts, since they have to fit on one "screen." I can reasonably fit up to 35 (5x7 grid) in a chart for a 1080p screen, but 30 (5x6 grid) looks better. Static image charts usually have far more slots than that.

One of the most convincing LARPs I've seen on /vr/ recently. If I didn't have kids of my own I might have bought it. The more you expand your story the more holes you expose. People on 4chan are experienced at seeing and calling out bullshit. Remind me again, how many games did your imaginary friendself play for how many decades on which console that wasn't modded. Do you even know that the original imaginary console you "owned" was actually owned by your friend or older brother or parents or whatever? The wew is strong with this lad.

Yeah you can also criticize the PS1 and SS for other flaws they had, it doesn't make the statement any less true. PS1 being the "mediocre" system isn't really a bad thing, and it was the first one to launch in late 94 so there's that. N64 came out 2 years later almost.
N64 was the most powerful home system for video games in mid 96 when it came out, until the first 3dfx cards came out for PC.

He means the game that have the extra RAM as optional (like Hybrid Heaven, Star Wars Racer), which indeed run at a much lower framerate, in the case of Racer making it unplayable since it's a game about reflexes, HH is more tolerable since it's semi turn based. The textures are higher res, but the framerate suffers for it. You can disable it though.
For games like Majora's Mask or DK64, which required the expansion (that is, were made with it in mind), no, they wouldn't run better without it, in fact they couldn't.

Not that guy, and I love Saturn and Nights, but Nintendo still managed to outsold Saturn, and within Japan, despite Saturn selling more units, N64 sold more software.
Also, while N64 doesn't have nearly as many 3rd party support as other consoles, it still has some pretty stellar 3rd party exclusives.

Sorry, but I don't consider flying homosexual jesters and arcade ports to fall under the category of good gaming experiences. Saturn had a small number of worthwhile titles, but by and large it had one of the worst libraries of any mainstream console ever, and the sales show it. You can call me a "Nntencuck" but all this really means is that I got to play cool shit like Perfect Dark, Doom 64, Ocarina of Time, Star Fox, Smash Bros., F-Zero and Killer Instinct while you were stuck with last-gen Sonic compilations, barely-playable multiplats and 2D fighters.

they're different games altogether.
Killer Instinct is the only one that's closest to the original game (and still has a bunch of new characters, techniques, etc).
Star Fox 64 and F-Zero X are definitely next gen sequels to the originals, and yeah I'd say they are better, even if the originals are still good on their own way, again, they're different games anyway.
