    I don't own the other two, but I do own Daytona USA.

    Do you have Daytona USA or Daytona USA CCE?  Daytona USA was a Saturn launch title and is good evidence for why the console failed in the west.  

    Aside from that, I've played Sega Rally via emulator and it's pretty great.

    You really need to purchase Nights, Panzer Dragoon II, and Fighter's Megamix.  If you like 2D fighters, get a copy of X-Men vs Street fighter with the RAM pack and be amazed.

    Not sure about Daytona. It came in a sleeve that says NOT FOR RESALE all over it, so it was a pack in at some point.

    I'm probably going to buy some sort of cart that does RAM and lets you play imports. Such as: http://www.play-asia.com/action-replay-4m-auto-plus-paOS-13-49-en-70-1b2.html Weirdly play asia seems to have the lowest price on this, it's cheapest price on Amazon is $33.99

    Saturn games are hard to come by around here (literally the first time I have ever seen one locally, so I bought it) so I plan to buy some import lots on ebay or something. Know any good japanese games?

    Oh and yea I obviously want nights(with the controller!) and panzer dragoon and shining force but I'm not dropping that kind of money right now.

    Well, a lot of times, Japanese versions of western-released games are cheaper for whatever reason.  You can go that avenue as I have for a game here and there.  Otherwise, here's a list of good exclusive Japanese imports.

    Good Japanese Imports (assuming you don't want to play Japanese RPGs)

    World Heroes Perfect
    X-Men vs Street Fighter
    Street Fighter Zero 3
    Fire Pro Wrestling Six Man Scramble
    Real Bout:  Fatal Fury Special
    King of Fighters 96-98
    Mobile Suite Gundam Side Story series

    So after some online digging, I went ahead and bought that cart from play asia. Found a few promising lots on ebay but haven't made any bids yet.

    I used to work at a place that had Dayton: USA arcade game, and let me tell you just how awesome the theme song for that game is. I will still sing it all the time.

    HEY SUPER XERO (should have made 3 different threads to hearken back to the days of canucker threads)

    I bought a PS4 with my tax return (Thanks OBAMA....seriously thanks bro.) I got Infamous second son with it. What have you been playing on it?

    I haven't been playing a lot of games on it since I beat Second Son.  I'll occasionally play some Warframe or Blacklight which are F2P downloadable games on PSN.

    Waiting for Watch_Dogs, The Last of Us PS4 release, and Destiny beta.

    I own AC4, Killzone Shadow Fall, Second Son, Battlefield 4, and Madden.  Out of those games, I would recommend Assassin's Creed 4 and Madden, but at this point, you may just wait until Madden 15.  Tomb Raider looks good if you haven't played it already, but if I get it, I'd rather wait until the Steam summer sale where I can likely get it for like 5 dollars.

    i downloaded the ps3 tomb raider when it was free last month, so buying the ps4 version seems silly.

    I got mercenary kings from PS+ since it was free and all. don't know a thing about that game so we'll see how that goes.

    So far the only complaint i have about the system is the TERRIBLE "headset" you get with it. I had to plug it in 3 times before it worked, but the ear piece falls out and the whole thing seems cheap.

    Would it be safe to assume any 3.5 mm earbuds with a mic would work with the controller?

    So i got some japanese saturn games finally. $9.99 on ebay and like 8 shipping for 5 games, pretty good deal i thought. I got:

    Puyo puyo 2
    Super Robot Wars(no idea what this is)
    Slayers Royal (no idea, possibly a dating sim)
    Virtual Volleyball
    Dragon Force

    Was pretty excited to get Dragon Force, then i popped it in and was like "oh right i don't know japanese. shit."

    What an eclectic mix of games.  The only games on that list I've heard of are Puyo Puyo and Dragon Force.  A quick google search reveals that Super Robot Wars is some kind of Chibi-Gundam RTS/RPG.  Aside from Puyo Puyo and Virtual Volleyball, I feel like you should brush up on your Japanese as I feel like the other games are fairly text-heavy.

    Japanese versions are great for fighting games and action-oriented games with little menu navigation.  They're cheaper and the box art is usually better.

    yea i mean i felt like for 9.99 i had to grab them but uh....puyo puyo is really the only playable one. And i guess volleyball. But it's a volleyball game from 1995.

    If nothing else they will look neat on my shelf.

    I bought Contra 3 like a year ago and have not played it once.  In fact, I have not hooked up my SNES since moving to my "new" apartment last year.

    My CRT is in my bedroom.  It's possible that I could fit all my consoles in there, but it'd be cluttered.  Just have the Saturn and Genesis hooked up.
