This will be the final feed post on SegaSaturn.co.uk in it's current guise.This marks our 5th year here at SS:UK! and later this year this site will be replaced by a brand new version.

The new site will be largely blog and article based while also featuring the same information contained here, including all the excellent reviews plus some new additions.

We will also introduce social media links enabling you to tweet, facebook or +1 any articles and/or reviews on the site.

It's been a long time coming but we're almost there.


The forums will remain largely unaffected apart from a change of layout (this has already happened)

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mick and the SS:UK team.

The times they are a changing...

The times they are a changing...Hi there Saturn fans, you may have noticed a lack of updates on the actual site at the moment, although our forum is going great guns as usual!
The site is currently undergoing a massive and complete redesign, this will include a totally new layout AND the addition of a proper database for our user reviews section.
It may be a few months before this new site is operational, but do take a look at our Community Forum which has already been updated with the new design.

Don't forget to come and join our community forums if you haven't already!

Mick and the SS:UK team.

Not just a website, a way of life.
31/03/2011
Not just a website, a way of life.It is with much regret, that this latest news update is to report the closure of what I considered to be one of the most important video games related websites ever to grace the interweb, Gary Cutlack's brilliantly satirical site UK:Resistance has finally closed it's doors after 15 years.

What was originally one of the finest Sega news and reviews sites, became a scathingly funny and intensely well written commentary on the games industry as a whole, as well as a repository for any interesting and/or amusing games related news, with Sega of course still taking prominence.

If not for UK:R and the already long departed Sega-Saturn.com, this website and the community it attempts to build would quite simply not exist.

This is a sad day for both myself personally and for all those that found a voice, thanks to the writings of Gary and many others at UK:R.
You shall be sadly missed by many, and on behalf of the five legged limping but determined spider that is SS:UK, I would like to salute a sadly fallen giant of planetary proportions.

The Super Quick March Update!
18/03/2011
The Super Quick March Update!Hi there Saturn fans!
As many of you already know I've been in very poor health these past few months, and life has generally conspired to derail any well laid plans I may have had.
However, we're rapidly getting back on track and we'll start off with plugging a few new reviews on the site:

As you will notice our current featured review of Shining the Holy Ark is a spanking new review by site contributor <martiniii> who has also written an excellent (and rather controversial) review of Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean, adding another great review to our U.S games section.

We also have a great review of the Saturn classic Wing Arms by long time forum member <Sonix>



The review section will be busy over the next few weeks but we still want your reviews, especially for titles not yet covered.

Keep living the dream,

Mick and the SS:UK team.

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Xmas!
11/12/2010
Ho Ho Ho! Merry Xmas!Yes it's that time of year again already, and to celebrate another Xmas here at SS:UK and over 1,000 registered forum members, we're having a little competition!
We want you to show us your individual artistic talents, by producing an artistic piece based on both Xmas and our beloved Sega Saturn.

This can take the form of a drawing, photograph, sculpture, film or anything remotely artistic, and most importantly original.
There are some pretty awesome prizes on offer for the top 3 entries, and perhaps another prize for the worst entry!

This contest is open to registered SS:UK forum members only, and all the details are available on our forum under the 'Site and Board' section at the bottom.

So go forth, and be artistic!

Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year from all here at Sega Saturn UK.

Busy, busy, busy!Well what a mad month this has been!
We've had some serious action going on in our reviews section, so a big thanks to all who have contributed there, please head over and check out all the new stuff being added.

Long time contributor Nick Ellingworth has written an excellent beginner's guide for anyone just starting out with the PAL Saturn, click here to take a look.
Our Hardware>Consoles page has had a big update correcting some errors by the original writer, and rest of our hardware section will hopefully be complete very soon.
Loads happening on our forums as usual so if you haven't already get signed up!

On a last note we now have an affiliate link for Game of Japan who have some awesome Japanese Saturn goodies in stock, do check them out as every purchase there through our link helps pay for our hosting ;-)

As always, thanks for all your continuing support, any site is only as good as the community behind it and all our regulars are fantastic.

Mick.
