@Utena-mobile: The Sega Saturn and Dreamcast are two different systems. The Dreamcast was Sega's last system before they just went to software. Because it's a different system the DC can't play Saturn games but the DC has its own great library.

I remember playing a dreamcast... or it might have been a sega saturn. Target used to have game systems on display that you could mess around with. That's also how I played Mario 64. Anyways, what's the difference between a Sega Saturn and a Dreamcast? could the Dreamcast play Saturn games?

No, the Dreamcast couldn't play Saturn games (unfortunately!) It was the follow-up console to the Sega Saturn, more or less. I would loved to have played a few Saturn games on the Dreamcast, I must say. Burning Rangers, for one!

Anyways, I wish I had a Saturn for Lunar Silver Star Story and Revolutionary Girl Utena. Dreamcast just felt waaay too experimental to me, and a lot of the games just weirded me out (like the human headed fish one)

Yeah, Seaman was very, VERY strange. I still to this day don't understand why Sega put so much money behind that game. I get that it was trying to catch on to the Tamagotchi craze (a few years too late) but not only was it a really tough sell due to how weird it was, but it just wasn't a good game by any stretch of the imagination. "Look, you can talk to a fish voiced by Leonard Nimoy!" "Great! What else does it do?" "Well...."

Fortunately, the arcade ports and the likes of Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia made the Dreamcast a very worthwhile console.

Soul Calibur was tight.

I have yet to try that one, though I have played 2, 3, 4 and 5. The only one I really enjoyed was 2. Is there any point if you own 2 on both Gamecube and Xbox to get the first one on DC?

There's an older game than Soul Calibur. Apparently it started with a game called Soul Blade. I remember my cousin had a copy. It was a lot of fun. I always played Taki with her alt. costume...
and never won a match against my cousin.

Valkyrie 2, standing by.

Nah, 2 is the peak.

Yeah, Soul Blade! Never actually played the PS1 game, sadly

Always wanted to mess around with it.

@mindtwang: That's what I thought. I want to try one but honestly I don't want to pay the price for it if, 2 is just better overall.

@Utena-mobile: Yeah I have a copy of that somewhere. Some how it came into my possession, I never bought it, it's disc only meaning I don't even have a case for it. I think one of my"friends" that I use to hang out with left it my place years ago, not sure which one but whatever. It is an interesting game it hasn't aged well compared to say Soul Caliber 2.
