Episode 91: Sega Saturn Around the World

Download Episode 91: “Sega Saturn Around the World” here!

The Sega Saturn was a very unique machine. Practically ill-fated from the start at its surprise North American launch in 1995, gamers chose to flock instead to the more affordable and better-marketed Sony PlayStation. Unfortunately, those gamers missed out on a library of quirky and fun titles with terrific soundtracks. The Saturn gained a lot more traction in Japan, so there was a much wider variety of games on the import market. In today’s episode, Mike and Ed share the best (and weirdest) that the Saturn had to offer in both regions. Get ready for some funky jams, with soaring brass sections and crazy bass lines!
