It’s another one of these!
More Saturn Videos!
Yo, you’re a gamer, right? You probably know about Digital Foundry already and may have read some of the graphical comparison articles that they’ve done. They typically cover new games, but they cover older games as part of the Digital Foundry Retro series on YouTube. One of their recent videos looks at Castlevania: Symphony of the Night:
This is, by far, the best explanation of the issues with SOTN’s Saturn port that I have ever seen. Oh man, there were a tons of problems with that port!
SOTN’s port on Saturn makes me kinda sad, so, uh, here’s a more positive Saturn-related video:
In a sense, you could play Saturn games on your PC! But not really. There were some PC ports of Saturn games that were best enjoyed with the Diamond Edge 3D. Watch the video to learn more! Lazy Game Reviews uploaded this video some time ago. Maybe you already watched this video and almost forgot about it like I did! Either way, enjoy a history lesson in weird, Saturn-related computer hardware.
Goldeneye 007 XBLA Footage
I’m sure you’ve seen it by now, but someone was able to upload 30 minutes of footage from Goldeneye 007… for XBLA! Which was never released!!!
I don’t know if I believe it. I mean, Unseen64 reported on it (GoldenEye 007 Remake [Xbox 360 – Cancelled]) back in 2010. And this video looks like the screenshots and looks like a legit work-in-progress game. But I grew up in the 90s, and there were some truly insane Goldeneye-related rumors out there.
Here’s one that I remember from the playground back in elementary school: someone claimed that you could into a tank on Streets (like, physically get inside of the tank as opposed to riding on top of it) that was full of babies.
Since I heard that rumor, I take anything related to Goldeneye 007 with a grain of salt.
One of the cool things about the video is that the person playing it zooms-in on the island in Dam. It was a tiny little island with a guard tower and turret that you could not reach, but I remember there being a whole ton of speculation about it. Why was it there? Was it involved in some content that didn’t make it to the final game? If so, how were you supposed to reach it? It was very mysterious, and all you could do with it was look at it.
