"stating that he watched Wayne's World 2 while the battery wasn't fully charged. "
lmao. i can just picture the person who builds a portable saturn (why the hell pick a saturn? why not a cd-i or something with even fewer decent games while you're at it) to walk about watching waynes world.
I wish someone would make a decent Sega Saturn emulator, there are couple but work with mixed results. I used to own a Saturn back in the day and enjoyed every second of it even though it was a mistake not to get the Playstation.
SSF works fine for me, sure it doesn't play some videos correctly and there's a couple of sound stutters at points, but with a PII X3 710, 2GB of RAM and 4830 512B, things are sweet.
(and before people inevitably jump on me, a) emulators aren't illegal, b) I am using the original CDs and not copies, and c) SSF doesn't require a BIOS to work and as such doesn't come with it, but it's perfectly legal to own the BIOS file for the machine that you own)
I owned both the sega saturn and the PSX when they launched. I used to buy alot of imported japanese games for the saturn. It was a great console imho, I loved playing sega rally, and the jap imports. Alot more fun than the early playstation titles. It only failed because game developers allways port to a platform which has greater graphics capability. It's no different to this day, and why the dreamcast lost out to the ps2. It's all about the graphic fanboys who'd rather look at a pretty screen than play anything with substance to it.
The Sega Saturn was a very under-appreciated system.
I had one when they came out and I loved it. Daytona USA, Virtua Cop, Panzer Dragoon, Die Hard Arcade, alot of great games.
Graphics were decent on many titles as well.
Technically the Saturn was a superior spec system to the PSX and this showed in later games, the problem was it was a LOT harder to code for and Sony put a massive amount of money into PSX advertising and publicity
If you were a game developer would you make games for the more popular and easier to program system or the other one?
having both a Saturn and a PSX was useful because games like Resident Evil and Street Fighter Alpha 3 were much better on the Saturn
