Thanks.

Icarus, I do not use "converters" to play imports on my Saturn. I actually installed a switch to flip back and forth between regions. The unit literally IS a Japanese Saturn when that switch is flipped. I could play your rare game. And yes, I use the actual Sega 4MB RAM cart when I play X-Men vs Street Fighter. I can also play King of Fighters '95 which requires its own ROM cart (which I also own). I should review that game sometime. Remind me.

yeah, man, that extra 4 meg ram turned xmen vs street fighter into arcade perfection. how much do those cost now? i really want one along with xmen vs street fighter.

how did you install that region switcher? i need to do that.

hey, joe, i think you should review king of fighters '95 for sega saturn... you know, that one with the ROM upgrade...

You have to solder 8 jumpers or so on the Saturn PCB and wire the jumpers to some switches.

It's called Shinrei Jusatsushi Taromaru (Psychic Force). It looks pretty cool.

Oh crap I remember that game! I wanted to buy it but couldn't get hold of it. I bet my Saturn could play it, though.

Oh yes! You're gonna review Psychic Killers, and KOF '95! (I own '95-'97 for Saturn.) I'm curious how the Bonk's Adventure remake is seeing as SCEA is racist against 2D graphics, therefore preventing Hudson Soft from releasing it domestically. Those deceitful bastards!

Joe, you talk about MotoGP3 a lot and you actually made me a little interested in the game, so can you review it? You don't have to if you have something better to do.

I'll try to get around to it, but I've got a lot in the que right now. I've actually written two reviews so far but I haven't posted them yet because I haven't had time to capture screenshots.

Hmmm...I go an e-mail saying that you wrote another review, but it isn't here. :???:

Can't wait for the Spikeout review.

I have written two reviews. One of them (Urban Reign) I accidentally submitted when I was proofreading it, so I quickly deleted it (it was up for maybe 10 seconds or so). The Spikeout review is done with the exception of capturing images from it. As I have no access to a composite or S-video hook-up for my Xbox, the reviews will have to wait until I can get images for that game and caption those pics. Spikeout will be first and I'll post two reviews simultaneously.
