Oh yeah, Dragon Force is an awesome game! That's another one I enjoyed so much that I got the import sequel - Dragon Force II - but I ended up selling that as well since all the game text was in Japanese.
The Sega Saturn never really took off in the US, but it really did have a great collection of games. The Shining games, Dragon Force, Saturn Bomberman, X-Men: Children of the atom, Panzer Dragoon, Wipeout, Marvel Super Heroes, Burning Rangers, Virtual On, Virtua Cop, Sonic Jam, Guardian Heroes, Nightwarriors, Mr. Bones, Baku Baku, Nights and so many many more!
It's just too bad so many of these games are so damned expensive, my collection isn't half as big as I'd like it to be, but I just can't bring myself to pay the prices that some of these suckers go for.
I'm a huge fan of the Shining Force series, though I've been extremely disappointed by some of the newer releases. Shining Force II was actually the very first game I got for Genesis, so that will always be my personal favorite, though Shining The Holy Ark is a close second. I know a lot of SF fans didn't like some of the changes made in Holy Ark, but I think they worked rather well. I have the following Shining Force games in my collection:
Shining Force (Sega Genesis)
Shining Force II (Sega Genesis)
Shining Force CD (Sega CD)
Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya (Sega Game Gear)
Shining Wisdom (Sega Saturn)
Shining The Holy Ark (Sega Saturn)
Shining Force III (Sega Saturn)
Shining Soul (Nintendo Gameboy Advance)
Shining Soul II (Nintendo Gameboy Advance)
Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (Nintendo Gameboy Advance)
Shining Tears (Sony Playstation 2)
Shining Force Neo (Sony Playstation 2)
Shining Force EXA (Sony Playstation 2)
I used to have the Imports of Shining Force III Scenario 2 & 3, but ended up selling them a few years ago because I couldn't get into the game without being able to understand the story (The games are all in Japanese). I'm still hoping they'll release a Shining Force III collection with Scenarios 2 and 3 in the US, but it's looking less likely with each passing year...
Anyway, you can find the first Shining Force game on compilation discs like the Sega Smash pack, or as Omega said, through an emulator online. I also heard they were releasing a virtual console Shining game for the Wii, so if you've got a Wii that's well worth checking out, because the Shining Force series is truly one of the all time classics.
Ok, orange is a real guy. He lives a few houses past mine. His laptop won't let him post on nerfhaven for some reason. For this reason he does his business on another nerf forum, which we also share. Same with our youtube account. We work as a team. No offense taken. ~Blue
I don't mean to take this thread off topic, but what the fuck are you talking about kid? I don't know who the hell you are, so keep my name the hell out of your stupid little posts in the future...
The Larami Super Maxx 1500 Rapid-Fire Missile Blaster is just about the rarest Nerf gun out there. In fact that's the only known picture of it from an old eBay auction and that's the only time I've ever seen it before. It's my personal holy grail, the one gun I'd trade nearly any other item in my collection for, but as I said it's nearly impossible to find these days.
