Re: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

I really need Jaguar in my life! PIt fall, Bubsy, Zool 2 and Rayman look beautiful. The Jaguar does have some good platformers that were mostly overlooked back in the day becuase everyone wanted 3D and 2D platformers were starting to fall out of style for a while. Of course the 3DO and other 32-bit...

Re: The Iron Soldier Thread.

Definitely a "killer-app" for the Jaguar, as well as the sequel. I tend to play number 2 more, since I have it, though the requirement is a Jag CD unit and finding a copy, or even harder, finding the cart version. But I did just recently start a new game of the original, on medium, which is about eq...

Re: Need for Speed Scoring

What should i go for? Best time or best score? Score is a product of skill, so im not sure why you think you can go for one without the other. The NSX is quite likely the worst car in the game.

Re: 2nd model Panasonic gamepad vs 1st

Re: Telegames ripped me off. (Read it here)

That's good. But I've noticed that Telegames seems to release a batch about once or twice a year for all the Jaguar games, and the Jag dealers usually get a few copies in too. So, i think if you happen to order from Telegames after they ran out of stock from the latest run, you may be waiting six mo...

That looks like a good game. I'll have to grab it for the Saturn. Never even heard of it before now. Mostly out in space. Not too much texturing. Jaguar could of probably handled that with some reduced texturing. The Jag could handle it with full texturing, as-is, just going by Space War 2000 and B...

From what I recall, the PC and other console versions are a bit better graphically, in that they have ground texturing that the 3DO version lacks.

I had Darklight Conflict when I owned a Saturn and I highly recommend it, an excellent space shooter, with very Jag-esque graphics; dark, Garrard-shaded graphics like Battlesphere. it does have an arcade mode if I remember, but it was one of my favorite Saturn games. Damn, now I want a Saturn again!...
