The Sega '''Saturn''' was a good system for its time, it even had games better than it's PS1 and N64 competitors. However, The Saturn was unfairly rejected by people because of its lack of games in the west (LOL BERNIE STOLAR), so ultimately the console was forced into an early grave by the Dreamcast, and it was a dark day for Sega. And because it didn't sell very well, prices for games and accessories have been inflating a lot lately. Almost like the company's 3DO or Jaguar, except this didn't suck ass. Since prices for the Saturn and its games and accessories are very high (depending on how many it sold), emulation is recommended (SSF for mid-range PCs, mednafen for high-end). If you happened to have a decent amount of money and find yourself a Sega Saturn within your price range, BUY IT! And also consider yourself getting a [https://ppcenter.webou.net/satcart/#gamers Pseudo Saturn Cartridge] and look up [https://ppcenter.webou.net/pskai/howto/ how to use it], as some games require a ram expansion cart.

|A neat platformer regarding goddesses, life, creation, and crap like that. Very fun as you go around punching enemies, throw objects at them, or use your fucking pinball of a bird to destroy them (the second). The downside is that you only have one continue and three hit points instead of the Japanese version's five, although it does help is longevity as this game is really short.

|Part one of a platformer with a toy-theme. Probably the first game to pioneer a key as a weapon which is a nice little history lesson. Pretty cool, but a bit average. Still fun though.

Is bundled with CK2 as part of the ''Pepperouchau no Fukubukuro'' package, and it includes additional games, extras and bug fixes, so that's more preferred.

''Note: The Japanese version contains a character from the manga ''Decathlon'', and for copyright reasons, he was removed in international versions of the game. For a more swift kick in the nuts (at least for U.S. and Canada), one of the characters, Jef Jansens, was removed in the North American version of both this and Winter Games. What the fuck, SOA?''

|Classic Capcom fightan but instead of X-Men you have more than just X-Men; stuff like Spiderman, Captain America, The Hulk, etc. The Japanese version had Anita from Darkstalkers as a playable character via cheats, but for some reason she was removed from international versions.

Known as "Exhumed" in Europe, and is also available on PlayStation and DOS. PAL release does not include the bonus game Death Tanks and should be avoided in favor of the North American or Japanese versions.

Known as "Exhumed" in Europe, and is also available on PlayStation and DOS. Was unofficially remade as "Powerslave EX" in 2015, but the download was pulled offline. You can look for download mirrors online if you like, but the remake was made open-source.
