I had many backlog of games that I haven't touch too.
Sometimes buying and collecting games was more fun than playing them.


I know that feeling. I wish I had the motivation to play games more.

Uncle after 17 years waiting and finally knowing what's the most favorite SEGA Saturn game in Japan :















Uncle From Another World (Isekai Ojisan) anime adaptation is scheduled for a July premiere date in Japan

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZGuf4jqltQ



Quote
In the trailer, Takafumi asks Uncle what his friends in the other world were like, and Uncle remarks on the verbal abuse he received from one of his companions (shown to be a female elf).
Takafumi realizes that the elf was just being tsundere.
Unfortunately for Uncle, tsundere was a character concept that only really hit the pop culture mainstream around 2004, long after he had had departed to the other world.

Phantasm (SEGA Saturn) is Finally Translated
Trivia: Phantasm has the game on 8 separate discs (the largest of any Saturn game)




Phantasm  is a Sega Saturn full-motion video graphic adventure game developed by Infini Entertainment Technology and published by Outrigger.
A port of the 1995 Sierra On-Line title Phantasmagoria.

Digitizing unearthed VHS tapes of PHANTASMAGORIA 2 (Sequel of Phantasm / Phantasmagoria) Kickstarter is Up



Quote
5 VHS tapes containing all the movie scenes from Sierra Online's PHANTASMAGORIA 2 have been unearthed.
The good news is the images are full screen, uncluttered, and the quality is pretty decent.
The bad news is that there are some "static artifacts" that appear regularly.
Please help us digitize them.

Supper Releases Yumimi Mix Remix (SEGA Saturn) English Translation Patch



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faGGCUnrOnk

Quote
Yumimi Mix Remix is a 1995 adventure game for the Sega Saturn. A direct port of the 1993 Mega-CD game Yumimi Mix, it was created in a collaboration between developer Game Arts (of Lunar and Grandia fame) and well-known shoujo manga artist Izumi Takemoto, who wrote and storyboarded the entire game.
A happy marriage of Game Arts' technical skill with Takemoto's cute, whimsical artistry and inimitably eccentric sensibilities, the game is comprised entirely of fully-animated, fully-voiced, full-screen cutscenes coupled with periodic multiple-choice prompts, creating an experience almost exactly like watching an anime while still making full use of the interactivity afforded by the game medium.

This patch fully translates the game into English, subtitling all dialogue, songs, and important background text in the manner of a typical subtitled anime. It also adds new in-game options to show or hide Japanese honorifics, to partially or completely disable the subtitles, and to allow unimportant scenes to be skipped during gameplay.
