Juuust scored a Sega Saturn and this game today. Incredibly excited.

On topic though: Bomberman.

One of the most commercially successful franchises in gaming history. Had ~70 games. And now? Best we get is an iOS/Android app announcement.

Bug was pretty cool too.

Pretty much the only Bomberman games I play these days are Saturn Bomberman, the Super Bomberman games and Bomberman 64.

You should have bought Clockwork Knight 2. It has the entire first game on the same disc as an unlockable.

Good taste though, CK 1 and 2 are among the most charming, polished, soulful games on the Saturn.

so many fighting games simply ran their course, and don't need a resurrection. Then, there are games like this one... This game could be so awesome, with the new SF5 engine and some updated costumes for the characters. Hell, even totally new characters playing with the same tropes. like, their everybody's kids, or something.

also, Darkstalkers. because, in this world of grimdark shooters, Tomb Raider clones, and open world RPGs, we need some stupid fun

Ah, I didn't have a say in it, the guy I bought it off of just happened to have it and a couple other games. I'm glad to have picked it up though, maybe a while further down the line I'll pick up CK2 but I just ordered Panzer Dragoon as well so I have plenty to play for a good while now.

Tell me about it. I just bought 3 of the ps1 games in hopes of playing it with a guide just to get that Goemon fix. It's ridiculous how they've turned it into a stupid pachinko machine.

How was V and the PsP one? Heard good things. I played the first four and liked each of them, even IV which was realistically subpar.
>>
>>2902825
Not OP here. When I was a little kid I was transfixed by the art style in these games - the colorful characters, as well as some of the levels, like the library level in the second game. It was probably the first 3D (well, 2.5D I guess) game I played where all the models didn't look like complete crap.

I should go play them again and see if they hold up.

Looks neat but that's more of a Monster Land II clone than an actual sequel, it's like a respectful imitation.

Especially without Maki Ōzora designing the art and graphics

Did you play the Wii game? I love the original Saturn game but I heard mixed things about the sequel.
>>
>>2911267
It's late I worded my post so wrong. I only played the Gameboy Advance version when I was a kid but I have been meaning to play the remastered Saturn Version. I never played the Wii U version. I knew the games existed as a kid but I had no idea where to find a Sega Saturn or even a Dreamcast. The GBA was so much fun but you had to download it from the Gamecube Episode II servers (I meant to EP2 not BB in the last post) so I don't know if I could even play it again.


I wish it was still a franchise, I might have been able to play more games or play them now.

I grabbed up the Wii one as soon as I could because I was so happy it wasn't being left in the dust. I couldn't tell if it was nostalgia or not, but I didn't really like it. The surface stuff was like, kind of a dumb, involved story (unlike the vague, more effective story of the original) and not quite as charming graphics as the original. But I thought I was just sucking nostalgic dick too hard.

Then I met a friend who said he played the Wii one first and went back to the Saturn after all these years and he said he hated the Wii one as well. I figure it's a mix of trying to catch lightning in a bottle twice, as well as not as good design in most aspects leading to what only looks like a disappointment in comparison.
