Crazy Taxi offers the quintessential SEGA arcade aesthetic. It's presentation is so timeless. I would argue that with the Dreamcast, console 3D graphics/fidelity finally became "good enough".
Rayman 2 is maybe the best, and Super Magnetic Neo is kind of unique. Kao the Kangeroo is very generic.
3D Castlevania is shit though
But wasn't it decent at least? I know it got a sequel as well.
The funny thing is that Sega paid companies like KFC and Tower Records to use their likenesses, not the other way around.
3D Castlevania is shit though
- Tectoy, are there any plans to relaunch Dreamcast?
- (so so translation): Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Well, much like the Mega Drive they have the licence. But I highly doubt they could get the necessary parts.Tectoy would be teasing a Dreamcast re-release (using El Chavo del 8 memes):
Lords of Shadow wasn't all the bad, at least the first. Why did it make you lose faith in the industry?
Sell your body not your Dreamcast.
I need money so I am seriously pondering the idea of selling my Dreamcast + Shenmue I, Soul Calibur and Jet Grind Radio. What price should I ask for in your opinion?
Thank you 👍If you're selling it altogether, around $90-100. Separately:
DC = $45-65 depending on how many controllers/accessories and barring any really rare stuff like a Toro/hanzo, 1st party SCART cable, or 1st party VGA box.
Shenmue 1: $40-50 depending on condition
Soul Calibur: $10 cib
Jet Grind Radio: $20-25 cib
Castlevania is either a punishing action game with precise controls or an adventure game where every room is interesting. Most of all, it should have a fantastic soundtrack and monsters inspired by classic hammer films.
Redream is the most promising in development DC emulator currently. There's been some good progress on it lately: http://redream.io/posts/progress-report-july-2017Looking at the latest releases for DC emulators on EmuCR is a bit depressive, only thing that seems to be in development is Reicast (Android) and another one called ReDream which I never heard about, anyone tried it yet or have a better recommendation?
I'm thinking about buying another Dreamcast after mine broke a few years back but I'm totally ignorant to it. What's the best way to hook this thing up to an HDTV? My Samsung TV says it has AV inputs but I can't seem to find them anywhere on the thing.
Your friends better do some research. Not only 2X is arguably one of the best (if not THE best) versions of Street Fighter 2 but it's also one of the most collectible Dreamcast games and worth a pretty penny right now.I remember tacking on Street Fighter 2 X to an existing order years ago for like $15 to round out an order and get it to free shipping because no one really wanted it. My friends were like why are you buying that on DC, it won't even play online.
Everything is cooler on Dreamcast.
right but before people lost their minds about retro games it was just another SF 2 port & people weren't talking most places about which one was more definitive/etc, it was another classic no one cared about till they did years later
I'll try to get more clairvoyant friends in the future.
finally got 18 Wheel Pro Trucker for a good price at a con today - man, i love this game. the horn upgrades, the rival talking shit at me, all of it. kinda wanna get a wheel and a trucker hat & do this right.
