it really does. Maybe that was part of my hatred for it. I don't even remember if I played both games. I think I played one and thought it sucked and that was it. I don't know.

Ouch, Ack. My picks. :cry:

But if it'll help, I'll be fine if D-Xhird goes. A suggestion: keep a spoiler list of titles we've crossed out for grins and giggles? I'll probably try those out on my own in place of titles I won't play.

Even with the criticism about D-xhrid it showcases good uses of the Saturn to create effects the system's not capable of or rarely does like transparency and light sourcing.

I enjoyed Ninku myself, 2d sprites in 3D fighters arent that common.

@Joe - i'll strikethrough games we're not keeping for reference later.

List is down to 55 games - we need to still remove 3; i'll try to narrow it down to 9 optional games:

Final Fight Revenge vs D-Xhird vs Savaki: 3D fighters
Waku Waku Monster vs Tenchi Muyo Rensa Hitsuyou vs Pukunpa: Puyo Puyo style puzzlers
Stellar Assault vs Street Racer Extra vs Deep Fear: Random runoff

Please voice opinion on which you'd like to ELIMINATE

I'll voice to eliminate:
D-Xhird
Pukunpa
Deep Fear

Street Racer Extra while a fun game, is not exclusive to the Saturn or Japan. I couldn't find any info to say what "extra" it really has to make it on the list. Deep Fear is neither exclusive to japan or as enjoyable in japanese. If we ever have a Pal Saturn Club it should be added though.

Final Fight Revenge is a terrible game and the worst exclusive 3D fighter I played on the saturn.

No comment on the Puzzle games, don't really know much about them.

Ones I would recommend coming off the list with reasons some have already stated are Princess Crown which is also on PSP and not as enjoyable in Japanese. Bubble Symphony is on Xbox and even though in pal it will work on ntsc systems. Elevator Action Returns again a good game but it is not an exclusive game. I love the Choro Q series but the sim aspect would be pretty annoying in japanese, plus so many of the games are very similiar. Jewels of the Oracle should be played on PC, I get arcade ports counting towards the list but not PC ports. Blue Seed another rpg that would be much better understood.

I can't imagine this happening. I don't know that there were even that many PAL exclusives were there? Plus, as Mike said if given the choice between NTSC-JPN and PAL, I'd think it a better solution for US televisions to go w/ the Japanese games.

...more input? You don't have to play every week, or even most weeks to cast a vote...
