In the days of the PlayStation, Sega Saturn and Dreamcast, game demo discs were all the rage. No demo is quite as memorable as this “Free Demo” from Nintendo that popped up online and in magazines in 2001.
Shinpi no Sekai El-Havard
is an adventure game for the Sega Saturn. A limited edition version of the game comes with a "secret book". 🤔is based off of an anime with the same title. The protagonist of the story is a young high-school student boy, Makoto Mizuhara, who finds himself, due to various circumstances, tossed into the fantasy world of El-Hazard. While the main character and the setting is based on the anime, this is a completely new story with certain changes and new characters. The game plays like an enhanced visual novel which is fully voice-acted and displays protagonist and other characters on the screen during dialogues. Event scenes and animations are quite common, and character poses depicting their current disposition is displayed in portrait images which are also animated. Unlike typical visual novels where the player is limited to dialogue and choices, players can explore various locations on the map and try to perform actions outside the dialogue window, such as initiating a talk to other characters, or look around the area or go someplace else.🤓
Im looking in to a way to play disc based games with a translation patch with out using an ISO etc. The whole idea is giving me a headacke 😂😂😂
I love the Saturn games look from Japan and specially when they have extras with them. What Odd ball game do you have that you are proud of? 🤓🤔👾🤔🤓

Part 4: Nuts for Nintendo. Here’s a really interesting look at the beginning of a “problem” that has become engrained in Nintendo’s culture. Are they notoriously bad at estimating demand? Is it a marketing scheme? Or is it just a product of their overly careful attitude?
