post #311 of 2132
So is that legit Snatcher and Panzer Dragoon Saga? Also, is that an import Snatcher on the Saturn? Any differences between the Sega CD/Saturn versions, other than the translation? Also, completely curious what that PC Engine Duo R was worth? Jealous, by the way...I haven't had money for any new pickups since before Christmas.

Also, kind of related...I have been thinking about doing a recreation of the Snatcher Sega CD cover art in a large poster size. Either on canvas or a nice chunk of wood, in mixed media, probably mostly acrylics though. I would like to get as close to original art as possible...so if that Sega CD is legit, I would really appreciate a few high res photos, or even a high res scan, of the cover art. I have found a few sources in OK resolution, but higher would definitely be beneficial. Also, I have quite a bit of experience rendering text and fonts by hand, but I am on the fence if I want to do a recreation of the actual Sega CD cover, with all the text in place, or if I should just not do the Title/text and try to just recreate the actual art sans text.

Yes, they're both completely legit, and as you can imagine, expensive. redface.gif

As for the Saturn and PC Engine Super CD versions, they're both Japan only imports. Oddly enough, the Sega CD version, which I consider to be the best in terms of art style, music, and dialogue, was only released in the US and Europe. The Mega Drive (and naturally the Mega CD) sold poorly in Japan, so maybe that was the reason. The Sega CD version is a port of the PCE version, so besides most of the music, and all of the dialogue, the differences are very minor. The Saturn version, however, changed almost all of the background and sprites, and almost all of the music, and not for the better in most people's opinions. At the end of this post, I'll link a video from a playlist that compares the music from all six version of Snatcher. You'll see what I mean about the music.

I'll see what I can do about pictures/scans. Would you like one of that magazine ad I have too? What resolution? Keep in mind, the "cover" is actually the manual, so it may not be easy or possible for me to get it completely flat.

I'd take whatever photos/scans I can get, and would be super appreciative. The more source material, the better. Congrats on your Snatcher collection dude! And also Panzer Dragoon Saga...I've been wanting that game BAD since I was a kid. With the prices now though, I doubt I'll ever get it lol

Also, favourite Snatcher track -

The Snatcher stuff is absolutely fantastic. VERY nice. Rep+

I made it about halfway through Snatcher on my Sega CD (CD-R) and then stopped. It was pretty great. I didn't finish it just because I got sidetracked. I liked it though.

I'd like to get an Enforcer gun to use with it, I think that might make it better.

I loved the atmosphere and soundtrack of Snatcher, those were the best parts to me.

My obsession is jRPGs though so I'm only willing to pay for those, meaning buying Snatcher is out of the question. (I'd rather have Dragon Force for Saturn for that price.)

I would hope you guys have seen the movie Blade Runner, if not, then go watch it. That's basically the inspiration for Snatcher.

I got Lufia and the Fortress of Doom for SNES recently, that's my latest addition. $40. The label is slightly faded but no rips. I pretty much have all the SNES RPGs I had when I was a kid now, and all the ones I rented, as well as a few repro carts of fan translations (ToP, Bahamut Lagoon) from my teenage years. Pretty happy with my snes collection now, though I'd like to get Front Mission and Tactics Ogre from here.

Shenmue
Shenmue II
Skies of Arcadia
Silver
Seaman
Hydro Thunder
Jet Set (Grind) Radio
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Omikron: The Nomad Soul (Pretty good port, but the PC version is better)
Soul Calibur
Resident Evil Code Veronica (2 & 3 were ported to the DC as well)

There's definitely more, but I have a ton of DC games and those are the ones that come to mind. I tried to list them in order of my personal preference.

Do you plan on buying your games or simply burning them? If the latter, shoot me a PM. I have a lot of experience with burning DC and other CD-based games, and have some recommendations that will save you a lot of time and stress.

Congrats on the purchase! You'll soon own one of the best game consoles ever made.


Edit: Neurotix, if you'd be so kind, I have an update to my list.
Genesis model 1, Sega CD model 1, Genesis model 2, Sega CD model 2, SNES, PC Engine Duo-R, Saturn model 1 (chip'd), 2x PSX (7xx1), N64, Dreamcast, PS2 Fat, Xbox, Gamecube (black)

Dreamcast is my favourite system ever, I am sure you will find a ton of games you like for it. Honestly, there are too many good games to list...got any specific genres in mind? I could list some of the must plays, but those are easy to find. The Dreamcast has some real gems that cannot be found elsewhere, at least not easily. One thing I will suggest though is getting a light gun and House of the Dead 2...great times right there. Or how about Sega Bass Fishing 1-2, and Sega Marine fishing with the fishing controller lol Those where also quite fun. I don't even currently have a light gun or fishing controller for it, but not because I don't want them, just haven't had the $$$ to pick them up just yet. Another weird and cool Dreamcast game...the Typing of the Dead, you need a Dreamcast keyboard...I didn't recommend that though because I believe the keyboards are quite pricey now, and I also recall Typing of the Dead to be released on PC. Seaman...never played it, no real desire to, but if you want some weirdness you won't find anywhere else, get the mic setup and that game tongue.gif If you are into multiplayer splitscreen games, the Dreamcast really can't be beat, too many good ones to list. Powerstone 1+2 are great for 1-4 players. and to this day there isn't really much out there that can be compared. I could go on all day about the Dreamcast though, I am just mentioning some of the more popular stuff here.

EDIT - nice to see someone else recommending Silver, love that one too, but not a very popular RPG. One game I always forget about, and thus haven't played much, is Elemental Gimmick Gear...all I do remember is it had some fantastic art style and FMV cutscenes. Honestly though, and it might just be the nostalgia factor speaking here, I really don't remember the Dreamcast having very many bad games...sure, there was some mediocre releases, but for the most part, I would say you can't really go wrong with most Dreamcast games if you are into collecting, at least. Just so many unique titles to look for, the system is just awesome lol

EDIT - nice to see someone else recommending Silver, love that one too, but not a very popular RPG. One game I always forget about, and thus haven't played much, is Elemental Gimmick Gear...all I do remember is it had some fantastic art style and FMV cutscenes. Honestly though, and it might just be the nostalgia factor speaking here, I really don't remember the Dreamcast having very many bad games...sure, there was some mediocre releases, but for the most part, I would say you can't really go wrong with most Dreamcast games if you are into collecting, at least. Just so many unique titles to look for, the system is just awesome lol

Thread Starter 
Dreamcast.

Anything by Capcom. Not just the 2D fighters. Power Stone 1 & 2. Super Puzzle Fighter II (jap). Giga Wing 2. Mars Matrix. Tech Romancer.

Some of the exclusives by Sega are good. Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram is fantastic. Phantasy Star Online if you don't mind playing alone.

RPGs are kind of lacking but the best two by far are Grandia 2 and Skies of Arcadia.

You can also run emulators up to the Super Nintendo on Dreamcast. Look around the web, you'll find premade discs with an emulator and 500+ games.

The Dreamcast's niche was 2D fighters and 2D shooters (shmups). There's a lot of these on this system.

EDIT: Mr357 I would gladly update your list but my original post in the beginning of this thread has no edit button anymore. Can someone get a mod in here to fix this, or explain why? On top of that, the Sega thread no longer has an edit button for the first post either.
