  1. The FM Towns Marty doesnt really have a worse game catalog than the Jaguar... its pretty close actually. Hey, its got a better port of Raiden with the best version of its soundtrack! Its got some great arcade conversions of Raiden, Operation Wolf, Twin Cobra, Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands, New Zeland Story, Splatterhouse, Tatsujin 2, After Burner, Galaxy Force 2, Survivor, Puyo Puyo, Viewpoint, Pulirula, Chase HQ, Flying Shark, Marble Madness, Muscle Bomber, etc... those old arcade games have as much fun factor as the Jaguars best games. Fun fun fun. There is some early polygon stuff, like 4D Driving, 4D Boxing, Advantage Tennis, and... Alone in the Dark! Its got something the Jag doesnt have...RPGs: Dungeon Master 1 and 2, Ultima 6, Drakken, Emerald Dragon (great JRPG), etc. Ports of some PC classics like: Shadow of the Beast 1, 2 and 3, Prince of Persia, Flashback, Syndicate, Lemmings, Wing Commander, etc. And its crowning jewel... some of the best versions of classic point and click adventures, like: Monkey Island 1 and 2, Indiana Jones Trilogy, Loom, Zak Mckraken, etc. On the other hand, the Jag does have nicer exclusives... and is more powerful overall. And the Marty was crazy expensive for what it offered and was quickly overpowered by the Jag and 3DO in 1993. So, yeah, i like the Jaguar more for its uniqueness, but have had as much fun with my Marty as i have had with my Jaguar.
  2. I disagree that only a "few" games take advantage of the Genesis sound capabilities. Ninja Turtles Hyperstone Heist sounds as good as its SNES counterparts. Mega Turrican sounds as good as Super Turrican. Batman and Robin sounds so cool. Thunder Force 3 and 4, Gleylancer, Dune 2, Elemental Master, Ragnacenti. Master of Monsters, Langrisser, Streets of Rage series, Sonic Series. Super Shinobi 1 and 2. Ys 3. Batman. Comix Zone. Contra Hard Corps. I could go on and on, such a fanboi. Sure, its sound isnt sample based like the SNES, but it has its own charm. SNES isnt perfect. It usually uses short and muffled samples. Once you hear those you cant unhear them. And its not just the Yamaha FM soundchip, it also uses the PSG and a DAC. Games that take advantage of the 3 have some of the most amazing and unique soundtracks of the generation. The bad rep the Genny has with soumtracks, come from a lot of american developed games that used the GENS sound engine, which wasnt the best...and also suffered a lot from mediocre midi conversions.
  3. Nah, those games dont look Dreamcast quality to me. By saying that, now you are underrating the DC. Those framerates, resolution, texture quality and level of geometry arent DC worthy. The Playstation is much closer to the N64 than the N64 to the DC. Stuff like Speed Punks and Terracon looks as good as any similar N64 titles. And thats without using extra RAM. Its a shame the PS1 didnt get RAM upgrades. And for the love of god, i always prefered the Saturn and PS pixelation to the N64 blurriness... pick your poison i guess. So to me the N64 sits nicely as a 5th gen system. The PS1 is closer to it, than the Jaguar is to the PS1
  4. Bubsy 3D is better than a lot of Jaguar 3d games... i would take it! Also, i dont think its "THAT" bad, hehe.
  5. Yeah, why settle for the first one. If only MK2 would have received the same treatment as NBA JAM TE from the same coders for the Jag... that would have been more than enough for me BITD.
  6. Gotta love the Amiga copper-like color effects on the backgrounds. And also the fact that you got parallax scrolling going on. How many colors are being displayed in average?
  7. That looks and sounds amazing! Never tought it would look this good on the Lynx video resolution. Gameplay and animation seems way smoother than the Sega GameGear version. Congratulations guys!
  8. Maybe if they made the level shorter to save some RAM? That level is about twice as long as the original R Type first level, and has more enemy variety. I dont like very long levels on shooters, i prefer to have shorter ones, but more of them. You would need the extra memory just for the sound FXs, since it would play CD music, right?
  9. Yeah, given the narrative so far, i doubt either Battlesphere or Zero 5 looked better than Space War 2000 in the eyes of Atari. Thats given that SW2000 offers fully textured mapped vehicles and the other 2 dont 🙄. Remember, more texturemapping rules over fluid framerates and decent gameplay.
  10. Wouldnt loading at the start and at mid level and once again when you reach the boss help? The PS1 version did that, and it didnt ruin the game. Plus, loading times for a cartridge wouldnt be that long, right? I really dont know how that works. But even then, they had to cut some animation on the PS1 version, but was still pretty darn good. And then you would have the issue of cart sizes. But now we have flash carts! I had such big hope for Legion Force Jidai to turn into a reality...
  11. Yeah, and didnt they had to port Raiden just by playing the heck out of the arcade? They didnt get any source code or assets, right? Just the arcade cabinet...which would be pretty cool! Or am i mistaking it with some other game?
  12. Looks really good. Very impressive graphics. Tons of sprites on screen at the same time, of all sizes and animated. Bosses are huge. Music is very good too. Love the artwork. Congratulations!
  13. Forget about Mortal Kombat 3. Just a port of MK2 that is as superior to the SNES version, as the Jag NBA JAM TE is superior to the SNES game. It wouldnt matter if it was as late as the Jag NBA Jam TE. Also, more ports of PC games that used the Wolfenstein 3D engine. It ran so nice on the Jaggy. Damn, feels like i have posted this same stuff on a 100 other threads 🤣
  14. Havent really tought of comparing the FMV quality of the 3DO and Jag CD before. But should be pretty close, right?
  15. Turrican 3 with Native quality graphics... first level even has aliens trapped in test tubes in both games 🙂
