  1. I never understood the mindset of many gamers back then who didn't give the DC a fair shake. I bought one myself shortly after launch and never tired of it at all throughout its lifespan. The system had a crazy amount of fun games, with the releases never seeming to slow down, and I built up a huge library even before Sega decided to shelve it. Thinking back on when Sega announced its cancellation and their transition to being just a software publisher is depressing.
  2. Why does liking the Jag mean hating the N64? I certainly don't hate it, and I'm about as big of a Jag fan as anyone else. Pretty much any other mainstream console will most likely beat the Jag when it comes to the homebrew scene, just due to sheer numbers. I don't see it as a "race", though. Jag fans and homebrewers will keep the system alive for as long as there are fans wanting more games and developers making them.
  3. I broke more than one N64 controller, but that was due to slamming it on the ground and throwing it at the wall after getting my ass handed to me by my younger brother in Mortal Kombat Trilogy. The N64 controller was an important stepping stone in the evolution of controllers. It also came before everyone was sure of what control scheme would work best for games like first person shooters, so I can understand why some people may look back at it now and wonder why it was designed the way it was. Back then, though, it worked fine for the types of games we got on the N64. And the D-pad was a necessity for fighting games that require precise movements for pulling off special moves and combos.
  4. The Jag's commercial life was only around that long, but in all honesty I never really stopped playing it. For those of us who were hardcore enthusiasts dating back to its commercial life, the Jag never really "died" for us.
  5. Too long. My parents are packrats and have stuff piled up in the garage, so it's going to take a lot of digging. Oh well, I'm sure I'll come across them eventually.
  6. No, it definitely wasn't a dream. I've had two Jags for many years now, one of which had a rental sticker on it, and the other was the one I originally bought back in January of 1995. The latter is the one that I still can't find. On top of that, I have a Lynx that's buried somewhere as well.
  7. I've got two Jags and one Jag CD. I've always known the importance of having a spare, and it's a good thing that I had one as I could only find one of my Jags when I came back from living overseas. My second one is still hiding around somewhere.
  8. I'll second what everyone else said about taking time to practice how to fly the ship. Once you get it down, you'll find those parts that were extremely tricky at first to be a piece of cake. Having said that though...the parts where large objects provide their own gravity can go die in a fire.
  9. Towers works on any ST model. Towers II also had Falcon and PC releases, according to its Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Towers_II:_Plight_of_the_Stargazer
  10. There's something about this forum that seems to attract people who have little to no of a grasp on reality. I'll leave it to you to figure that out on your own.
  11. Don't underestimate the power of stupidity. Some dumbass with far more dollars than sense will come along and happily cough up the dough, which is exactly why these pirate cart scammers are listing them at such high prices.
  12. Jesus, even pirate cart prices are going insane on the Jag.
  13. No one ever let Jane and Kieren get in the same room together. The universe would implode under the sheer weight of their lies.
  14. I don't think the 7800 community needs someone who promises something great, shows off crude unfinished demos with no sound, and then disappears for years on end with the excuse that he moved/changed jobs/got stuck in a snowstorm/etc. There are plenty of 7800 developers who actually finish stuff, be happy with them.
  15. It's probably a safe bet that many of us here already follow you on there.
