You're not the only one who longed for those shitty Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon SNES games. I remember finding the Ranma 1/2 game when I was vacationing in the poconos at a video store up there. I don't think I have ever seen another copy of that game in the wild. The first time I got to play it was in emulation, back when they didn't even have the SNES down. Games ran at like 15 fps. I usually had to turn off some of the layers just to make it playable. I remember playing FFV when the first beta translations were coming out. That 5 minute opening scene took like 20 to get through, but I sucked it up and played it anyway.
I really like that Dreamcast magazine with Claire from RE drawn in the style of Power Stone. Cool beans.
I actually owned the Ranma 1/2 game for a day believe it or not. Well, I didn't, but my brother did. I'm pretty sure SF2 was already out so my brother was hyped on that plus the cool anime art, but he ended up bringing it back to work and getting something else in return (which the replacement actually escapes me). It was a terrible game, but I did remember loving the way it looked. I kind of wish he didn't get rid of it, it would surely be in my collection still. Well, maybe. I sold off a couple of SNES games that I must have been insane to sell like Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ninja Warriors. Whoops.
Anyway yeah, I finally did play a lot of those games on emus years later. My PC also ran SNES ROMs at a snails pace then too so I didn't play many at first, but I played a ton of NES stuff which ran great. I remember getting a new PC and being able to play all the emulators finally and being blown away. The good old days.
And thanks Stillies, good to know someone else knows what it's like!
