That's awesome!  I wonder what they'll do with this. Laugh it off or take it seriously?

You'd think Sega would say something eventually, even if it is just to say no. It's not a terrible idea though.

Wow - it's a bit quiet in here!

Getting into Gigawing DC-wise this week. Using that lovely arcade stick too....

Thought I'd wake up this thread with this video from Gaming History Source looking at artwork for Dreamcast Games...

That is one heck of a collection of cover arts there. Can't imagine going out in the wild to track down all of those so maybe he had them all already and decided to put together a video showcasing them.
Some of the art is ridiculously good and I miss that about the DC. So many Japanese games that I'd like to have. So many American titles, at that.
Could always go the repro route but since I'm down to one working unit, think I'll leave it under glass for the time being and continue pouring all my resources into the Jaguar :D

The Dreamcast 2 would've been incredible. Too bad it's shut down.

Lots of covers indeed.  I set this video going while doing stuff on my desk to enjoy the music and the images. 

Regarding the Dreamcast 2, Rerez had a video recently talking about why there shouldn't be a Dreamcast 2.  Looks like that came to happen anyway given what you posted.

Good video minus that crybaby on the right. Jeeze, the video would have been half as long if he would have stopped whining. Hope Rerez redoes it without that guy.
Fun to revisit the system and talk about the games. DC is one of a kind. Never liked the cd+g disks they used and all the pirated versions do suck but still have a lot of love for the real thing.
If only I had some backup units I could still be enjoying the library outside of emulators.

Glad you liked it.  I know that guy is whining but some people can't be helped!  LOL

The Dreamcast Junkyard is having a competition where they are giving away 3 copies of the unreleased DC game Propeller Arena. They made very professional looking packaging for them and they look great. Details on how to enter are in the link :)

What a gorgeous looking game from that screenshot. I didn't read up on the article as to why it was canceled by Sega, but sure is a pity considering what a piece of work it is. Would like to get my hands on a copy. Might be enough to take my last remaining DC unit out from under lock and key to play it. :D

Yeah, really bad timing! The game is available online for free and there's repro sellers who offer physical copies of it too. The real draw here is the packaging.

I just grabbed a couple of PAL versions. (I guess it's PAL only?) Will see if either can be used in Chankast or similar.
I'd like to experience it but don't know if a physical copy is the way to go. Fantastic looking game, though. Thanks for the heads up.
