I got an Atari Jaguar!
3:28:13 PM

As you may or may not know (or cared, for that matter), I ordered an Atari Jaguar off Amazon on Saturday for £50. The question that's poping into mind right now is probably "Why the f*ck would you want a Jaguar!?" Well, to be totally honest myself, I don't know exactly myself, the console itself, you have to admit, looks awesome, it has a nice flat design, and I'm intrested to see if how "bad" the controller was, but anyway, I ordered one along with a game (Iron Soldier) for a total of £60 excluding P&P, which isn't bad considering how much Jaguars go for these days.

I got the game yesterday, before the Jaguar itself, and it was sealed and everything, but it was a US copy, I think, because it had the ESRB thing on it, and on the bottom, it said "Made and Distributed in the United States by Atari", but after a little more examination, it found out it was actually a PAL copy, they were just too lazy to take out the ESRB thing, just as well no other game has this problem, but even if this was a US copy, it'll play anyway, as the Atari Jaguar isn't region locked, like the 3DO.

The day after, the Jaguar had arrived, it looked just as cool as the images I've seen of it, if not cooler, so I sent and set it up, and disaster struck, no picture, just sound, I was really mad, as I thought I had just wasted £50, half of my savings, on something that doesn't work, but it turns out the scart cable that came with it was actually an RGB, and I plugged it into an S-Video socket, so I changed it, and it worked! So I've been playing Iron Soldier for the last good few hours now.

I've just ordered another Jaguar game, but this time off ebay, it is none other, than Tempest 2000! I've played this before, and loved it, this alone I thought was worth buying a Jaguar, however, when I was ordering the Jaguar, the game was £45, yeah, ouch! However, I just got a boxed copy of Ebay for £27, I love finding a good bargain, I really do!

Anyway, I might do a Jaguar review on this website, but I'll post a part 2, the conclusion, after I play enough games, in this part, I will be looking at the hardware itself, so stay tuned for that!
