I hope you know your going to need either a japanese saturn or a switched one. There is no way to use the 4mb RAM cart while using an import cart, as you use up the slot.
Make sure every game you buy has the spine card and insert with it, unless you only want them as gamer copys. From the collectors point of view your games are dubbed practicaly worthless unles you have these two usless items with them.
Be expected to pay a lot for zero 3, the price has rose conciderably, even though the whole saturn market was expected to drop. I got mine for $80, now your looking over $100 and thats for an average conditioned one.
Mshvsf is easy to find, probably one of the easiest out of the whole lot. MSH and xmvsf are one of the hardest to find imo, I still haven’t picked msh up.
The Rockman X4 box set doesn’t include a ram cart(although it supports it if you want to). It’s a LE containing a figure and art etc. Very very rare to find.
Kof games only need a 1mb ram anywhere over 96. 95 uses a rom cart containing stages and sounds on it. All the others need ram. I think ms needs 4mb, although it might only be 1mb. Either way you’ll have a 4mb if your playing fighters anyway so that wouldn’t really matter. The kof games suck on the saturn, honestly. The graphics are ok, but the sound is horible. The loading times are a discrace too. No one wants a 5-8 second loading screen in between rounds, I wouldn’t bother.
Games to get/look out for:
virtua fighter 2
house of the dead
last bronx(get jap version, contains training mode)
panzer dragoon zwei 2
panzer dragoon saga$$
rockman 10th aniversary colection(seperate games)
psychic killer taromaru$$$$$(posibly the rarest game on the saturn. You’ll only see this game mabes once a year and hitting the $400 mark)
sonic jam(best quality sonic compilation out)
waku waku 7$$$(4mb)
twinkle star sprites$$$(4mb?)
nights into dreams+3D/analog controler
christmas nights(cheap but rare LE)
sega touring car
super puzle fighter 2 turbo
daytona usa cce
virtua cop 1+2
steep slope sliders
sfa2 gold(includes cammy)
I can’t really think of any others right now. Now we talk about this I really need to bulk up my collection.
