The Jag Bar

Recommended Posts

Thanks gang,

Really great sight, some beautiful pics on here.  Looking forward to to showing some Jaguar love here.  But I also have a lynx 1 & 2 and 7800.  All originals from when they were purchased upon original release, this is all my stuff and I can't wait to get them in the game so to speak.

Dude what an awesome concept for a YouTube show! "The Jag Bar." That's even a good title. Will you be doing many more episodes? I really enjoyed this it was cool, I'll subscribe and keep an eye out for new episodes. Jaguar guys will love this.

 

Thanks so much!  Yeah Im having a good time making them and showing off the system to people who've never even heard of it.  I have about 30 games, so thats 30 episodes right there.  Then I plan on getting the games I don't have, plus peppering in the Lynx from time to time.

Myst was the reason I bought a Jaguar CD.

 

People like to hate on that system, compare it to a toilet, whatever. If you played Myst on the Jaguar when it was first released you knew it was the best version of Myst you could get your grubby hands on.

 

The Jag Bar is awesome btbfilms76, keep it coming!

The Lynx version Blue Lightning was largely an excellent After Burner clone that took advantage of the Lynx's sprite scaling capability to great effect. It did everything a pack in should do: a solid, fun gaming experience that demoed the power of the system. By contrast, Jaguar CD Blue Lightning didn't have the fluidity and arcade action of its predecessor, nor did it play to any of the Jaguar's strengths. As it is, Blue Lightning is just "ok". Its a shame that ATD and Atari did not put the level of care into this title that they did into Battlemorph. That was a real showpiece for the Jag CD.

 

if you want to see great aerial arcade action from the time, After Burner for 32x is one of that system's stand out titles. Its all 2D sprites and it absolutely roars.

True story about Battlemorph - They should have just made that the pack-in seeing as how Cybermorph was the original pack-in... I think having several games that required game saves would have definitely pushed more people to go out and pickup a Memory Track at the same time of purchase or soon after. It took me some time before I could afford a Memory Track from what I remember. I did however feel you were getting a pretty good deal for the upgrade at $159 with basically 2-games, demo of Myst and the soundtrack to Tempest 2000 and the VLM was just an awesome bonus!

 

Video was cool btw! You don't realize just how badly Blue Lightning has aged on the JagCD... still really cool music though! =)
