I've been buying a fuckload of tits 'n ass mahjong games for Saturn:

Image

I've already discussed some in the mahjong thread. Gonna elaborate on the others, if there's interest. Really been digging Mahjong Yon-Shimai: Wakakusa Monogatari and Mahjong Hyper Reaction R.

Some other Saturn junk:

Image

- Stakes Winner 2 — Neo Geo port. People don't believe me, but this is a great game!
- Sonic 3D & Flickies' Island — Not that great, but I feel it's the best version of the game. Came out really late in Japan, so all the graphic design corresponds to the Sonic Adventure look, which is kind of weird.
- Shutokou Battle '97 — One of the best polygonal Saturn arcade racers (and the system actually doesn't have a lot of good ones)
- Henry Explorers — Kinda trashy, but I love the style.

Also a fuckload of Neo Geo CD games:

Image

- Magician Lord — One of the games I used to own when I still had an AES. Top notch sidescrolling actioner imo. Beautiful visuals and balls to the walls hard.
- Robo Army — Decent enough beltscroller.
- The Super Spy — The Neo Geo's only "FPS" for lack of a better word. Really kind of a slog.
- Power Spikes II — Fun sidescrolling-Volleyball game. Takes place in the same Video System world as all their other titles.
- Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer — Messy but very entertaining. I love that all characters sing their own stage songs.:lol: Had never actually played it until now.
- Quiz King of Fighters — I don't even know...
- King of the Monsters 2 — Trashy but fun.
- World Heroes 2 Jet — Sucks. Only WH I really play is WH Perfect. I do like the stage intros though.
- Idol Mahjong Final Romance 2 — Awesome strip-mahjong game
- Puzzle Bobble — Great game of course. I already own it for MVS and SFC.
- Galaxy Fight — Decent fighting game with some unique aspects; impossible against the CPU

Random games for other consoles:

Image

- Vigilante (PCE) — Basically Kung-Fu Master with ghetto stylings
- Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon — 3DO-exclusive 2D fighting game.

PS4 shmups:

Image

- Vasara Collection
- Sisters Royale
- ESP Ra.De. Psi
...love them all!

And a new VN, the remake of Yu-No:

The first game that I got on AES was KOTM2. I still like it to this day. Still get a weird feeling seeing the World Trade Centre in Cyber-Woo's hands every time.
Gets to be quite unfair in latter stages as bosses wipe out all your credits, it is cheap in places but makes me laugh all the same.

Not heard the NGCD soundtrack for KOTM2 but the MVS/AES is quite good.

First time I saw this being played was on The Games Master in the UK in the early 90s.

Sonic Wings 2 let you wreck the WTC as well. I guess SNK knew something nobody else did. ;)

KotM2 was also one of the first NG games I experienced. And yeah, it is pretty cheap and definitely also high on the jank. They never actually bothered bringing part one to CD, probably because it's too similar while decidedly worse. The soundtrack on is identical with MVS/AES afaik.

Yes, KOTM2 looks a lot nicer than the first game. I like Cyber-Woo as it reminds me of the gorilla of the Zoids.

Pretty funny when playing co-op as you toss the enemy between yourself. Super Geon looks fiendish.

CoreGrafx Mini arrived, and now I have a nice row of Mini consoles all hooked up and ready to play at the touch of a button.

My USA contact sent me my bi yearly package today (I live in the UK).

N2O was in the bottom of the box under the bubble wrap, almost threw it away :lol:

Extermination, yay! Still have yet to unbox my PS2s after moving, but for whatever reason I did look at my PS2 collection of games today, the likes of Air Ranger: Rescue Helicopter and, no, I can't seem hope any other console to ever surpass it in my book. Certain things have their particular time and place in our lives.

I recently picked up these two namco controllers called the JogCon and NegCon.

I played Ridge Racer 4 on the PS1 with them and had a great time.

It is proper cool.

Although I'd say I preferred the JogCon, it's force feedback on that wheel is really strong, I had to turn it down !
