I always thought that Dynamite Deka/Die hard Arcade was a solid game (at least with 2 players), but the regular loading (at least on the Saturn) always spoiled the whole experience somewhat as far as I'm concerned. Still, good to see it getting some love on the forums.
IT IS A... cool game, however, the DC version is a good improvement. I sort of struggle with how DHA/DD only plays out in 2D, as opposed to 3D in the sequel. Shame they dropped the Die-Hard license for the DC sequel though...
"One of the FINEST third party 3D fighters on ANY 32-bit system!"
"Pick this one up and I PROMISE you won't regret it. After two polarising [Toshinden] games, they finally got everything RIGHT. Call it a case of third time lucky, if you will!"
"MORE Saturn owners should take greater PRIDE in this exclusive…"
Got myself an ST-V board a year or so ago and got the multi-region bios for it. But never got round to getting any games. I have tested out a few games on MAME to see which ones I'd like best, although I haven't played a huge amount of them.
My favourite was Astra Super Stars, which I just put an offer in for on eBay and it got accepted, so I'll pay tonight, and hopefully I'll have that soon...
I also really enjoyed playing Die Hard Arcade, so I'll be looking into buying that too.
Other games I think I'd like to get further down the line are Virtua Fighter Remix, Columns '97 and Puyo Puyo Sun. So those might be my top 5 I guess. I would say Virtua Fighter Kids as that is my absolute favourite game in the Virtua Fighter series, but I have only played the Saturn version which I own, but since I have it on Saturn I am not sure I'd bother getting the cartridge version.

How much did you pay for Astra Superstars Sploit? Hopefully it worked out cheaper than picking up a copy for the Saturn?
Great game though - a good choice. There's a chance that Groove on fight might be worth picking up for the ST-V too - now it isn't up there with the 'classic' 2D fighters from Capcom & SNK tbh, but it's the crippling loading times that REALLY kill it on the Saturn more than anything else (something you won't have to endure on the ST-V.
'...are you going to tell me no modern games are that good and we should be playing the Saturn's back catalog forever more?'
Astra Super Stars arrived today, works great when all set up with on my Supergun, only downside is that since my Supergun is only set up to run 3 button game, I'm missing 3 of the attacks from the game, haha. Never mind its something to work on. I think I'll go for Die Hard Arcade next, not sure when I'll get it though.
