Thanks for the tips Pdaimaoh

I live in a pretty small town, so unfortunately there are no used game shops, or any game shops for that matter (I have to drive 30km to buy games).

I want a Japanese Saturn since I plan on getting mostly imports (I cant stand those elongated jewel cases used in North America ), so ebay will probably be my best bet...

Nice to see I'm not the only Canadian here (actually I'm Polish, but I've lived in Canada for about a decade).

polish?

are there a lot of polish people in canada? the admin of a forum I spend time in is of polish decent but lives in canada!

ha! the 'elongated boxes' UTTERLY SUCK
god only knows how friggin high on crack sega execs/PR/marketing idiots were when they cooked up 'hey, CDs are slim and easy to store! let's change all that!' for the SegaCD

then whatever idiot thought 'well gee, we ordered so many cases and the segaCD did so poorly, why don't we order more and use them up for the saturn, instead of maybe making them SLIM LIKE OUR INTELLIGENT JAPANESE PARENT COMPANY DOES...oh yeah, and while we're at it, let's change that controller! no need to spoil these north americans...'

as far as imports, I only imported the Capcom games, which I'm very happy that Vampire Savior on Saturn has many wonderful things such as A FULL ENGLISH LANGUAGE option, and a merging of Vampire Savior and Vampire Savior 2 from the arcades (finally, Phobos gets a VS ending!)

but I had the PAR 4 in 1 deal, so the added cart and conversion wasn't a problem
other than fighting, my most favored games were RPGs, and those are too difficult to enjoy in a language I don't understand

lik-sang and some UK online store still get those saturn modchips in...

I dont know how the Polish population in Canada compares to the other minorities, but I'm guessing there arent that many. Well, there's enough to warrant Polish-only doctors/dentists/priests/etc if need be, so maybe there's more than I would have thought.

Which forum is that, if you dont mind me asking? Maybe I've heard of it.

RPGs are my preferred genre also, but for most other types of games I think language barrier would be negligible. It would would also provide me with an excuse to learn Japanese. I already know a few languages, so learning one more shouldnt be a problem

just a random thought here ... isn't the "profile button" underneath every post supposed to substitute for this? ^^

since it's my first try at these message board things, I'll lack the images and text effects ... bear with me

polish canadians? what's your bacon and sausage like?

the site is www.emulazone.com
it's run by AirZoom, a polish canadian

it's also the home to the forums for the site AND the site of www.rpg-zone.com (don't bother, it's got some nice reviews, but no notice that all downloads are down and staying down! arrgh, they don't tell because they want banner clicks to help pay for their PRIVATE ftp for members of rpg-zone...)

anyway, the forums are mostly emulation related, with a section for RPGmaker2000

currently it's got some reduced traffic problems because one of the other moderators was really 'ban happy' until he was cracked down upon

Talking another intro

Name's piyo, I'm going to be "anonymous" just for change.

Age: 27. Gaming since 9. Not as old as that "non-specific console gaming 31 year old.", but I've got the non-specific down.

Location: Kobe, Japan. I loved gaming and anime so much I moved from Southern California (U.S.) to Japan. What can I say, all the good gaming stuff comes out here!!!! :p

Occupation: Windows application programmer. I've probably too old to get into the PC or console gaming industry. I'm not creative or smart, but I wouldn't mind being a QA tester or a tools developer for games.

Console Gaming: Atari 2600, NES, Gameboy, SNES, Turbografx-16, PSX, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast-jp, Gameboy Advance, PS2-jp. I like:
  • 2d, 3d platform action (Ico, Jax & Daxter, Milton's Secret Castle, Pitfall)
  • puzzle (Tetris w/Card Captor Sakura, Bubble Bobble, Hangman)
  • pinball (Kirby's Pinball, Pokemon Pinball, Pinball Construction Set)
  • fighting (Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore, Final Fight One, Karateka)
  • "light" RPGs (Final Fantasy X, Chrono Trigger, Adventure)
  • SHMUPS (Psyvariar, Raystorm, River Raid, Yar's Revenge, Combat)
  • strategy (Military Madness)
  • sports (Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, Mario Tennis, Skate or Die, Tennis)
  • dating/love simulations (Mizuiro, To Heart, Roommate Ryoko)
  • "futuristic" racing games (Wipeout Series, Road Blasters).
I'm planning to get a Nintendo 64-jp, an XBox-jp, a GameCube-jp(DVD player included). In that order. Really. ^_^;

PC Gaming: I also play PC games online, notably Unreal Tournament (aspiring CTF flag carrier). I also buy the occasional adult anime PC game (Momiji --Ningyou ja arimasen--, Private Emotion).

Anime: Anything Studio Ghibli. Series like Maison Ikkoku and almost anything by Rumiko Takahashi. Robotech. More recently, Chicha na yuki tsukai Sugar and De-ji-charat style anime.

Dark-side: I have a modded PSX, I support emulation, ROM/game trading, I buy used games.
Light-side: I've probably spent at least 4000 USD for console gaming alone over my lifetime.

Likes: thoughtful, insightful discussion
Dislikes: flames, name calling, obvious trolling.

Now, back to the games! Let's keep the discussion s/n ratio high... And thanks for reading!

oh YEAH, baby

anyone that likes Robotech is worthy, too!

btw, you are at the 'leaving' age for most industry people that aren't rich producers and petty managers

by that I mean most people got into it a bit earlier, then realized if they were doing a job that required no talent, they got crappy pay and no respect and if they did a job with REAL talent, they could go somewhere else to get better pay and a better atmosphere rather than crappy pay and hardly any respect...

some people stay in for a long time, though
however, if you do real work, like programming, you might end up working a TON of overtime
which might suck if you find yourself in a salaried position...

you could still get in, but ambition/motivation had better be a part of your personality, because you don't wanna be treated like a shmuck just because your co-workers are shady...
