  1. Yeah, can’t believe it’s that shoddy. Especially as SEGA seem to be pouring a lot of love into other areas of this game.
  2. Isn’t that the exact reason why arcade racers don’t get made anymore? If even the fans of the genre don’t think it’s worth purchasing until it’s cheap. Looks like a banger. Will have to purchase it soon, been too long since we’ve had a good arcade racer.
  3. Origi’s form lady night was looking promising. Although he has always switched it on for Champions League games.
  4. He’s out for the season there. Our young players never seem to have any luck
  5. Definitely the collector in me bought that as I have it on the Xbox but… it’s one of those games I associate so much with the Dreamcast much like Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi, Rez etc, that it feels a bit off playing it elsewhere, so having it on the Dreamcast feels right. Loving Fast Striker, when I moved from Dreamcast to 360 years ago Last Hope had been hyped up then panned so I kind of ignored anything NGDEV made and let them pass me by as I was no longer a Dreamcast owner. Definitely should look up a few more of their games NeoXYX looks tasty if a bit pricey! Shane they are no longer around, the homebrew scene could do with a few more devs like them.
  6. Had a bit of the Dreamcast splurge. Nabbed a few off @strider Only got myself to blame when I’m skint later this month No more Dreamcast games! I’ll keep telling myself that
  7. I’m looking to change the battery on my Dreamcast soon. Get rid of the slight annoyance of having it display the time/date settings every time I power it on. The YouTube vid I’ve seen had made it look simple even for a complete soldering amateur like me. Question, is it actually easy or just deceptively easy?
  8. I can never work out on Amazon jp the differences between two versions they usually have that are only a few hundred Yen apart. So I usually give in and opt for Play-Asia.
  9. Pre ordered Death Smiles and Cotton Saturn tribute for Switch on Play-Asia.
  10. Started as a Kickstarter but DF got bought up by MS and are now part of Microsoft studios. The production values have definitely benefitted from the extra first party studio resources being sunk into it.
  11. Sony’s store would be for the PS4 version . Next gen tax
  12. Really liking it so far. Visually it’s the most next gen game I’ve played, it looks amazing and loving the art style most of all. Only downside for me so far is the amount of button inputs it throws at you from the off, I struggled to remember the right one to blast, strike, fire, jump, move objects, glide etc when things got more frantic. Which to be fair complex controls is something I’ve always struggled to get to grips with on modern games so might not be an issue for most.
  13. If I topped up the gold subscription for another year would the gamepass subscription extend with it?
  14. Upgraded to gamepass for £1 so I could play psychonauts 2. Never knew it would be for the duration of my gold membership which expires May next year. Mental value. I’m sold now.
  15. Best format is the Dreamcast as you get to look at its cute face as you play. The developer’s next game; Tapeworm, should be out for the Dreamcast (and NES) later this year.
  16. Intrepid Izzy is a must. I don’t hear much love for the Dreamcast homebrew scene here but there’s been some corkers over the last year with Xeno Crisis, Xenocider, Flea! and now this. It’s by Senile Team who made Beats of Rage and Rush Rush Rally but this is far superior to their previous games. Plays like a Metroidvania with a bit of a nod to sonic-like platforming and scrolling fighters. The animation is a fluid 60fps and stands as some of the best 2D graphics on the console. It’s also damn good to play, been on it constantly over the last few days. Pick it up, keep supporting new Dreamcast games in 2021 and add a banger to your collection.
  17. The beginning of that season I had Arsenal as favourites. They definitely had the best squad IMO but were never really in it, their second place finish was due to Spurs trailing off after they lost out on first, and hugely flattered them. Spurs definitely should have pushed Leicester closer and may even be the best chance they’ll ever have in a long time but that’s not to take away from Leicester who were remarkably consistent and who somehow managed to get the likes of Huth playing on Super Saiyan mode for the whole season.
  18. Apparently agreeing a transfer for Shaqiri was the requirement before the club make their final transfer move. So hopefully something happens this week.
  19. I find looking for VGA compatibility lists difficult. None I’ve seen is comprehensive. I just look for it at the back of any game I’m interested in. I think there’s only a handful of non RGB compatible games, so must be out there.
  20. Sorry to hear that. Condolences. I’ll look forward to any future DC homebrew content.
  21. Does Retrogamer ever look at homebrew Dreamcast games? Both Xenocider and Inprepid Izzy have come out in 2021 and been great releases, as good as any DC game in its prime.
  22. Keep meaning to pick up space invaders forever which has extreme and arkanoid vs space invaders on it. It’s only about £20, so much better. Loved extreme on the 360, another one of Taito’s that never got backwards compatibility.
  23. Especially as those Doom’s regularly go for a couple of quid in the sales
  24. Favourite game ever getting the next gen treatment? I’m in! I’m hoping that it’s given a thorough lick of paint, don’t want a lazy remaster.
