    OMG.

    I just creamed my pants.

    I loved this game on my Saturn (still have it) but to my regret I never splurged out on a Saturn Virtual On twin stick.

    I want. I want. And in Hi def?

    WAAAAAAAAAAANT.

    Edit.
    On another note you should be able to select the device on your back. Saturns and Dreamcasts for old school, XBOX360 for everyone else. Yeah.

    I am so predicable.

    In Street Fighter, in Real Life, everything.

    Wow, that's pretty awesome. I saw the thread title and thought "too bad it's not VOOT though" then I came in and got a happy surprise :lol 

    I had VOOT on Dreamcast and it was damn near unplayable with the DC controller. Mercifully, twin sticks are standard now on gaming systems.

    Day one purchase.

    I would ask for a new Virtual On game, but today's Sega would probably make a game with no robots and fighting.

    If sega actually loved us, they'd fire everyone who had had a hand in the development, approval, and marketing of Virtual On: Marz.

    This is just feeding off our love of a time when sega made good games.

    I'll take what I can get though. I'll buy this.

    That Valkrie Chronicles proves that Sega can still put something amazing out when they want to. I swear if Sega put out another console, I would be all over it with support. Stranger things have happened. You never know.

    Damn, now this is a reason to get myself on Live ASAP.

    Only fighting game I ever got schooled at regularly (like 50% of the time), but it was still so damn fun.

    Um, I kept my Dreamcast just in case somebody would ever want to play Tech Romancer again (maybe for one or two other games two, but I can't actually rememeber them, unlike TR).

    So did you part with yours or are you just looking for Sega to give the same treatment to those that they're going to with Virtual On?

    Kept mine for Tech Romancer and Soul Calibur 1. And I guess Skies of Arcadia and Grandia II, but those are on other systems now, too.
