By Rolando . May 1, 2007 . 12:00am

It hadn’t occurred to me, until a friend of mine reminded me, that yesterday (April 30th) marked 9 years since Panzer Dragoon Saga was released here in the United States on the already dying Sega Saturn. With 30,000 copies only shipped to the United States, Panzer Dragoon Saga instantly became a title that everyone almost […]

By Rolando . April 9, 2007 . 5:13pm

Oh Sega Saturn. It was a shame that your lifespan was a bit short compared to your competition, but I would be a fool to completely ignore the brilliant games you’ve managed to house! Games like Guardian Heroes, Shining Force III, Panzer Dragoon, Panzer Dragoon Zwei, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Virtua Fighter 2, Virtua Cop 2, […]

Sometimes you have to wonder what drives a person to sell a rare/hard to find/out of print item on eBay for a BIN price so high you’ll have a heart attack just looking at it. I remember constantly looking at PS3 auctions on eBay back when the PS3 launched to see just how high bids […]

And now for something completely rare

By Konstantinos . February 12, 2007 . 8:50am

Thought the HiSaturn Navi, a Hitachi manufactured Saturn/GPS combo, was rare? Think again. Think SEGA SGX. Now, try buying it from eBay for less than 1000$ and you might just become a happy collector. Failing that, and taking into consideration that e-bay auctions don’t last forever, let me tell you a bit about the SGX. […]

Run laps with your Saturn

By Katie . October 10, 2005 . 5:16am

A quirky track-and-field venture by Sega Sports circa 1995, many combined factors mystify the mind as to why the game was overlooked for American release, especially when Sega of Europe (the most autonomous, and thus, the sanest subsidiary of the lot) would release the game as Athlete Kings to the smaller installed Saturn base there.
