The Sega 32-bit fan-people (Ed: that’s very politically correct of you!) may have their SaturnDay, but the diehard Atari fans also have their Jaguars purring on SatAtariDay!
There is great pleasure in sharing the intoxication of nostalgia with like-minded gamers. Weird and Retro’s Aleks ‘Serblander’ Svetislav definitely captured the nostalgia to provide the Atari Jaguar hit I was seeking.
With a huge Jaguar banner greeting me upon arrival, I knew I was in for a treat. Like a kid in a candy store, it was difficult to focus on any one thing that Serblander had in his awesome Jaguar collection.
My attention was quickly grabbed by the mouth-watering Jaguar gaming bling on show – from the never released Tiny Toon Adventures, to the ever-rare BattleSphere Gold! Oh yeah, let’s not forget the hardware bling, from the BJL’ed Jag, Pro-Controller and M.A.S. Super Pro-Stick, to the the beautiful CatBox connected to the back of the Jag with its eerie red eyes glowing when the big cat was purring.
With the Atari’s big cat out to play, it was time to get down to business and do the math – play some games! SatAtariDay truly was purr-fect!
Let the SatAtariDay shenanigans begin!
The Jag Bling!
Let’s get cracking then!
The Jaguar loot in box 1 (of many many boxes!)!
The ‘better’ Jaguar controller. And it’s Pro!
Ello ello ello, what do we have here then, aye?
More Jaguar loot! Woohoo!
Shhh, this is top secret stuff!
Are you an extremist?
Setting up just a few Jaguars!
Oh yes, games!
Oh yes, more games! Virtua Fighter, I mean Fight For Life anyone?
Forget Super Hang-On, go Super Burnout!
The sublime Impulse X – on cart and CD
Serblander smashing it on Impulse X! A rotary controller is the only way to go!
Value for money – Impulse X (cart) comes with two additional games!
*wipes drool* BattleSphere GOLD baby!
Awesome rare platform action on Tiny Toon Adventures!
Let’s kick some ass!
