I finally added a Jaguar to the collection plus a ton of new game releases. Shoutout to Albert and staff at the AA booth (as well as Songbird). Loving it so far!

Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe
Fantasy World Dizzy

*not-so shameless plug* Now you just need a Snes2Jag Cable adapter to view your jag in GLORIOUS HDRetrovision Component Output!!

Congrats on the pick up! Now get yourself a Rotary Controller, it makes some great games even more fun!

Fantastic video! Was nice to meet in person, and I'm thrilled you're enjoying the games. :)

Is that noticeably better than S-Video through a line doubler (RetroTINK2X) to 480p? Are you able to get true component / RGB video out of the Jag?

The Jaguar does native RGB out of the rear edge connector. I make a cable adapter that allows the user to use any SNES cable with the Jaguar, including HD Retrovision cables.  I think its a noticeable difference over S-Video but as always YMMV. 

 

Here are some forum links from when i started making them.

Awesome man, thanks for linkin' this here. = ) Lots of great games seem to be coming in the not so distant future and if I could recommend others you can still pick up, I'd say get Skyhammer from Songbird, the Jeff Minter collection from the AtariAge Store, Alice's Mom's Rescue from Gaztee on Etsy and if he's still making it available, Stunt Car Racer from Gaztee right here on the forum.

Hope to see another Jaguar vid or two in the future!

Same here. Maybe do a video featuring John Hancock where you pick his brain on which jaguar titles he thinks are must haves.

Hell yeah man! If still looking to get a great Jaguar game and support Songbird get Skyhammer. It's my personal favorite but others like it as well, really shows off the graphics on the Jag!

Yeah Skyhammer is awesome. He has Towers II as well. The price is steep and people are mixed on it but I think it's great.

...and I'll be honest, this video did way better than I expected to. When I originally decided to do an Atari Jaguar video, I wondered if it would get almost no views... but I was pleasantly surprised! :)

Judging by the shocking amount of orders that Saint got for his Jag SD cart, I'd say that the Jag has more of a following than people give it credit for.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw his video...  :)
