Lovely Atari Jaguar Emulation

The Atari Jaguar, Atari's final, slightly buggy and very 64-bit console, has always been an obsession of mine, even though I never owned one. Still, I managed to be a console-less Atari fanboy and still proudly am. Sad, I know. Just like the Jaguar, really, which despite some excellent games like Aliens vs. Predator, Jeff Minter's Tempest 2000, Battlemorph and the original Rayman flopped impressively enough to seal Atari's coffin.

Yet, all is not lost. Rivendell (what?) still stands and the emulation scene has managed to decently emulate this most complicated of machines. All you have to do is follow this very link and download the freeware Virtual Jaguar, the best Jaguar emulator yet released. It can run most major games, many homebrew demos/games and even some of those rare Jaguar CD games. To grab a physical console you could do worse than hang around the Retro Treasures blog...

  3. I think I'll just wait until I see a real physical Jaguar at a car boot sale. Then I'll buy it for a fiver. Then I'll send it to you Gnome, and you can co-exist with it in complete harmony and we'll all live happily ever after...
