The n64 and ps1 are my favorite consoles, but I don’t have many Sega saturn games to play. I wanna spend my stimulus money on the essentials so I need some recommendations. What are some of your favorites for the saturn?

my personal favourites are baku baku animal, nights, and the panzer dragoon titles, but here's the full list
highly recommend importing any titles that don't have copious amounts of text (unless you can read the moons)

The Sega vs Nintendo rivalry wasn't really the same anymore once PlayStatin entered the game. I don't remember SM64 vs Nights comparisons. If anything, the general impression back then was that Nights looked very interesting, and despite the game actually being mostly a side-scroller in gameplay, the graphics are still fully 3D (Nights' model, the whole map), and it has the impression of 3D movement. The vibrant graphics and whimsical art direction surely got the game a lot of attention at release. The problem is that the Saturn was just hard to find, Sega had a lot of problems with retailers. I remember having to call a lot of stores before I could find one that had Saturn in stock.
Nobody really thought of Nights as an answer to Mario because people were still expecting Sonic X-Treme (or whatever 3D Sonic that people were expecting on Saturn).

Dark Savior. It's a really interesting game. Action RPG with isometric platforming, fighting game battles, and a branching story that all fits together. Depending on how you complete the first area, the entire rest of the game changes. It has other neat ideas like how you can capture most enemies to use in later battles. It's not perfect, like the fighting system is really simple, but it's a very unique game and worth playing.

Responsive, tight controls, creatively designed levels, using a real 3D rendered map, but set on a specific path in it, making the gameplay a unique kind of arcade flight/racing hybrid, good art direction, one of the most memorable games from 5th gen, more than the milliard of boring-looking 3D messes on PS1, great soundtrack, a memorable, enigmatic and exotic character design, and last but not least, an innovative AI pet simulator that eventually led to the acclaimed Chao garden on the Sonic Adventure games.

Shining Force III trilogy can be played in english with a fan-translation of the last two chapters, and is one of my favourite series of all time. It's an SRPG with some really fun set battles and great story.

Die Hard Arcade is a fun brawler, especially with a friend to co-op it.

I'd reccommend all the AM2/Model 2 arcade ports like VF, Daytona, Sega Rally, Virtua Cop etc, but if you can play the arcade versions, they are superior anyway (or more recent ports like VF2 on Xbox 360/PS3).

Guardian Heroes is an amazing action/scrolling fighter with levelling elements/branching story. Beautiful graphics and music too (also available on Xbox 360).

Try out Burning Rangers too, a really fun platformer game as a futuristic firefighter with amazing graphics by Sonic Team.

Explain how it is an inferior port? It has all the frames intact, and no loading times. It's virtually identical to arcade. What are your arguments?

Saturn version has the 3 Hunter characters and a few other special options like custom GUI, clear pause screen, infinite health (practice), etc.
I don't know what do I have to "cope" about, of course I could fire up MAME if I wanted, but Saturn port is an exquisitely made port by Capcom, playing on real hardware has 9 input lag or any other issues, and it can be played on a CRT at 240p.
Chronicles is pretty good but doesn't support 240p.

Not him and I love the saturn but most cps2 saturn ports, while miles better than the psx ports,wha are far from arcade perfect if you actually want to play the fg at a higher level. For Vsav in particular the issues lie in that are STILL cut frames of animation. For example, Talbain's j.MK comes out one frame faster in the Saturn version compared to vsav arcade. There are also links that are not possible in the cps2 version similar to alpha 2 on saturn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUwpp1qpwdE.

>For Vsav in particular the issues lie in that are STILL cut frames of animation. For example, Talbain's j.MK comes out one frame faster in the Saturn version compared to vsav arcade
This doesn't mean there's any cut frames, it just means a frame comes slightly faster on Saturn than on arcade. The blog you got this information from is mostly complaining about Vsav 2 rather than the Saturn port. In Vsav2, Talbain's kick comes out slower than on original arcade Vsav.
The rest of the post on that blog (about the links) is talking about Vsav2, not Vsav Saturn.
So, 1 frame of animation for 1 character for 1 specific move that comes out a split second faster than on arcade, it's still not missing any frame. It's not "far" from arcade perfect, it's actually pretty damn close and still virtually identical.

ok you got me there because i'm too lazy to put together an analysis of what's exclusive to vsav saturn. Though I don't think you can refute alpha 2 being not 'arcade perfect' with the evidence i've provided. If you just want to play these games the saturn versions are fine and better than a lot of the other home port options at the time, however they aren't exactly 'arcade perfect' and whether that means they're better or worse is all in the eyes of the beholder

>> No.6530297

no, the only thing in development you could call a flash cart is the satiator and it's not out yet. there are a couple ODEs that replace the disc drive but they're expensive and not cloned yet.
if you want to pirate saturn games, you are probably going to burn discs.

>> No.6530412

>>6530202
Japanese titles are generally cheaper, especially if you're a European like me, gaming markets have some cute cheap PAL titles here and everything else is just Japanese titles.

I own the Japanese Megaman copies of X3 and X4 because both go far beyond 200 euros on either the PSX or the Saturn.

If a title is worth having and it isn't so expensive I would want to lock it away, I'll spend the money though, 100 bucks isn't so bad.

Alpha 2 on Saturn DOES have missing frames though (just not nearly as much as on PlayStation). It's a pretty damn good port still, but yeah Alpha 2 on Saturn was never considered close to arcade perfect, just pretty damn faithful.
Vampire Savior, however, is nearly identical to arcade on Saturn and has more features AND supports 240p. It reunites a lot of good traits that other versions don't. Arcade original is obviously the one played at tourneys but doesn't have the Hunter characters, PS2 has input lag, Resurrection and Chronicles don't have 240p support.
That lands Saturn as arguably the best one to play for fun on a CRT. To be fair, Vsav on Saturn uses the 4MB RAM cart, that's why it has everything intact and even manages to not have any loading times (other than a few seconds when you start the game)

No, it's not generally hard, you just have to buy some stuff.
You can use a cartridge to run the backup loader Pseudo Saturn Kai and play burned games with it, but a few games have compatibility issues.
You can get a modchip that plugs into the disc drive to play burned games without any softmod, but they have to be your console's region, so you'll have to patch games that aren't.

Powerslave on Saturn being one of the best first person shooters of all time, I think it's worth mentioning that fairly generous vertical auto aim is what helps elevate its flow of combat to be more about weapon choice and dodging rather than targeting the correct pixels.

Could have used both controller ports, but I don't think that is necessary at all. The problem of aiming is frankly a lot less entertaining than environment management, weapons management, and dodging.
