Saturn Winter Special (2)!



Wow! I'm absolutely thrilled and delighted to have the opportunity to present this most fantastic follow up to nebacha's original 'Saturn Winter Special' post...

Whilst I was just sat there at the computer, commenting on J's most recent offerings, the following email came through, alerting me to the following comment on the original 'Winter Special' post.

Hey, I'm the guy who created that video! Thanks for the publicity... it's just the kick in the pants I needed to finish the second half of the feature. You'll find that here, by the way:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4Ac48355W0Being a long-time Saturn fan, I really love what you guys are doing with this site. Keep it up! And for the wiseguy who said I sounded like Seaman in the intro... that was supposed to be James Earl Jones, but it's the lowest octave I could reach with my squeaky voice. :P"

By Segata! Our Lord moves in mysterious ways... For the God-like creator of the video that got me through that first post-Christmas downer, is actually here at the Junkyard, alerting us to the second cinematic oddyssey posted above! You see? January isn't all that bad!!

Segata! Bestow all your manifold blessings on dear ArugulaZ for the gorgeousity he has graced us with...

I loved steep slope sliders as a child.

but looking back at it now I guess I was easily entertained

Nice video again! The screen kicking Segata Sanshiro scared the shit out of me! xD

And what the hell. Steep Slope Sliders was made by Cave? How weird is that. I still want to buy it, even if it doesn't seem to be that hot. But then, I am a hopeless collector anyways.

It's also really nice to see, that our comments encouraged you to finish part 2 of the video. Very well done, mate. What about more videos in the future? :D

Hahaha @ the wiseguy comment!

Steep Slope Sliders wasn't that bad, it was worth it for the soundtrack and the huge collection of unlockable characters that ranged from Sliver Surfer to a penguin. There have been much better snowboarding games since, but it wasn't bad at the time.

I recently picked up my first Saturn. (I was a PSX guy back in the mid '90s.) I'm enjoying.

How can I come by Christmas NiGHTS? I'm in the states, btw. Thanks.

You can order it from eBay UK usually dear Blake. I got mine for around £10 and it was money well spent...

ArugulaZ said...

I got lucky, I'll admit... I bought my copy from Blockbuster about ten years ago for around five bucks. These days, however, your only option is an auction site like eBay, and you're sure to pay more than that. Or you could hold out for the Playstation 2 port of NiGHTS, which contains all the Christmas content as an unlockable bonus.

Annnyway, I've started a Revver account, which both of these videos will be uploaded to as soon as they're re-encoded. I was tired of all my videos looking like cack on YouTube, so I've decided to take advantage of Revver's higher quality video playback. As soon as the videos are up, I'll hit you with the links.

Here are the hi-fi versions of the videos as promised...

Stay tuned to the web site. I've got plans to bring back The Lost Rings, a page dedicated to the Sega Saturn.

Here's a small taste of what I have planned!

elend said...

Thanks for the higher quality versions of the videos! :D

And yay, bringing back the saturn rings, would be really nice, too. The sample page looks nice.

Do you know some guy called Bloodflower? I remember he had a (quite decent) Sega Saturn page, too. I think it was also called Saturn Rings or something with that.

Sorry for being late, guys!

Thanks Father for posting the video. By the way, here's the link for my (more positive) review of Steep Slope Sliders, where my journey into the SJY began:

And thanks arugulaz for finishing the 2nd part. When I posted the first part I had no idea that it would be the incentive you needed to finish part 2. Please don't stop making this videos and pass by anytime :)

You DO sound like the fish from Seaman!

Don't fight it!

L.N. is cool.

An excellent follow-up to an excellent video. BTW, hope the post-Xmas thing is getting better Father...
