Witnessing the train wreck of a launch in had in Australia, followed by the drama of big name retailers dropping support for it a few weeks later. About six months after that the DC was dead and I was able to pick up lots of neat games in clearance bins. Best system ever.
Countless hours of SFA3, playing RE Code: Veronica for the first time, playing Soul Calibur for the first time, playing Sonice Adventure for the first time, looking at porn on my TV, playing Chu Chu Rocket online, so many memories...
I remember the day I got my dreamcast... 9/9/99. It was a thursday. I remember because I skipped school that day to pick up my preordered dreamcast along with Sonic Adventure. I remember it was a thursday because my mom also let me skip the following day of school, so I had a 4 day weekend.
I didn't buy a VMU. However, I beat Sonic Adventure that weekend. In one sitting.
It is probably my all time favorite gaming memory.
EDIT: The only memory which can possibly compete is the day I got my sega CD. That was fucking MAGICAL. But I'll save that story for another day...
Anyone know of a good VGA>Component converter that keeps progressive modes active? I'd really like to capture good quality video off the Dreamcast, but my capture card is component. I've gone through two now. The first cut off 29 pixels on the left, and the second one is just some shitty one that kills black levels and makes the signal 480i :|
