They might have a few new units in japan, and a few new games are still being released there.

But yea, its a dead system.. too bad alot of great games got the axe when sega made the anouncement they were pulling out of consoles. I am sure 100 games were in development.

I am also getting a Sega Saturn from another guy (It has been like 2 or 3 months I've been trying to buy one)

I can tell a few games that I would like to have if I get this Dreamcast.

Ikaruga (Either the greatest shmup ever or the most overrated game ever .. anyway it's from Treasure, and I am yet to see a bad game from them.)
Bangaioh (Again , stuff from Treasure)
Crazy Taxi 1&2 (Fast, Furious and Fun.. never played 2 though)
Virtua Tennis 1&2 (Can Tennis be a fun sport? yes, it can )
Mars Matrix (Another shmup I've never played but I keep hearing about)
Power Stone (cool 3D fighting game, that takes real advantage of being in 3D)

Was Marvel Vs Capcom 2 published for the DC? If it was, that's other one I would like to have.

There are probably lots of other games I don't know.. I admit I don't know many DC games...

Have any of you (modded) DC owners tried the homebrew stuff available at places like DCEmulation.com?

I've been trying out things like Doom DC, Quake DC, original games, and a whole lot more! It's great!

I just play the original DC games and the console emulators. Quake is best plated on a PC

I dont think anybody said it's the best shooter ever except you But it IS the best Dreamcast shooter in existance, IMO.

You must, MUST get Jet Grind radio, Chu Chu Rocket and Sonic Adventure!

BAAAH, I am tired of reading people drool about Ikaruga in the shmups forum....

Oh yeah, Chu Chu Rocket! That's another one I really want to try out.

And Jet Grind Radio, heard only good things about it too.

Now I gave a quick go at Sonic Adventure, and I didn't like it too much at first, Mario 64 seemed to be a better 3D platformer. But I only played for like 10 minutes, so I can't judge it properly


Hey, now I regret posting this in the off-topic forum.. could we put it in the General Discussion or maybe in the Nostalgia & Memories ? (Well.. the Dreamcast is a dead system after all )

As long as it is an OLD DC model. New models can't read CDRs and need modding.

Now we could rename the thread to "Dreamcast Thread" or something

My friend did not get the Dreamcast... he said he wasn't sure if the dreamcasts he saw were in good condition or not, so he thought it was better to not buy it.

Damn...
