This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games, including consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games. Retro gaming means platforms launched in 2001 and earlier, and official game titles for those platforms released no later than December 2007 (homebrew console games made after this date will be permitted). The Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Game Boy Advance, and Sony PlayStation 2 will now be considered "retro".

Uh, yes? Are you saying it's out of the question to appreciate wildly different games in a long-running series?

If you count all titles, sure. If you only care about the mainline 2d console games, then no, they are all above average at worst.

Most series can't even nail ONE genre right, and you're saying someone isn't a true fan if they don't think it does them all exceptionally? Sounds like you equate fan to mean delusional.

I haven't watched an avgn episode for at least 5 years until this one and I don't know how to feel. I get that it's not meant to be taken seriously but most of those Taito games he called shit were at least decent.

You paid too much, but that is a sweet looking specimen, anon. And you can play against the computer, can't you?
>>
>>7131746
I wanted it for years and I bought it when the chance finally came up. I don't mind if I over-payed. The condition was primo so I'm fine with it.

It has no VS against the computer to my knowledge, unless you have to edit the circuit board.

It's two player only. You put in a quarter and the screen serves the ball. The paddles won't move on their own, only via turning the knobs.

It's wrong that you have a Pong machine and you can't spell "paid".

>It's two player only. You put in a quarter and the screen serves the ball. The paddles won't move on their own, only via turning the knobs.
You can always play against yourself, take bets on which hand wins. hehe
But really I could have sworn that it allows for a one player game in some emulations I've used.
Regardless, good on you, man, you have a machine that I and many other gamers would love to own.
>>
>>7131778
Thanks dude
I've played dozens of times against myself. Not as fun as it sounds, and it doesn't sound fun to begin with.

Whatever emulator you've played probably just added on a computer to play against. The arcade game has no software, CPU, or graphics. It's all hardware and timed circuits turned on or off.

>The arcade game has no software, CPU, or graphics. It's all hardware and timed circuits turned on or off.
I know, but I'm not 100% sure there's not a way. I could have sworn I watched a video of a guy who owns one playing against himself, as in, against the game. Are you sure it's not possible for the logic board to play against you? With relays it could work. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd check that a bit more.

Ocean made a lot of these types of games, so did Virgin Entertainment, as well as other Euro developers like Probe and such.

Is there ANY alternative to this thing outside of emulation? It's pathetic. but I just want to put my carts into something that isn't a tiny no-blacklight stone slab and actually see the screen.

a Retron 5 would do the job okay I imagine, plus it'd also let you play Famicom, NES, SNES/SFC, and Genesis/Mega Drive games as well(and Master System, SEGA Card, and Game Gear games as well with a separate adapter they sell for it) alongside the GB/GBC/GBA stuff you're primarily looking for

Thread title. Let us come together to talk about Sega's weird, misunderstood, tremendously charming 32 bit console.

> What are you playing?
> Have you done any hardware mods?
> Are you a collector who buys retail games, or do you prefer a mod chip for backups/an ODE?
> Did you get one back in the 90s, or did you discover the system more recently?

I never had a Saturn when I was a kid, because I was a poorfag who had a Genesis well into the 32 bit era. I picked one up around 2008 or so and bought one of those old Rackeyboy modchips and had a blast, but had to sell my physical game collections when I moved to another state. I just recently picked up a white Japanese model 2 on Ebay. I had a pseudosaturn cart for a while but a couple weeks ago my MODE arrived, so I have been using that instead.

Anyway, it's late and I'm bored so I figured I'd make a thread (inb4 some faggy bernieposter)

Disregard that post, there's a guy who thinks it's funny to post pictures of Bernie Stolar whenever the Saturn gets mentioned. It's not funny, but what can you do I guess.
