Hey there wizfrens where should I go to buy a working Sega Dreamcast system. Ebay, Amazon or Facebook marketplace? I plan on selling my Original Xbox and PS2 and go buy me a Sega Dreamcast system after playing it at my friend's house. My friend won't sell me his. So any ideas?


what year is this, 2002? anyway the dreamcast is an overrated system imo, it is a cool thing to like for street cred


I think the Dreamcast is underrated. It was very powerful for its time and brought online gaming in to so many homes.


I heard somewhere that the Xbox was originally planned to be able to play Dreamcast discs. In a sense, Xbox is the successor to the Sega systems. Segas were really comfy, though I would almost say that SEGA would've done better as a record label or something. They have so much amazing music in their games.

Nice Choice Wizpal, i have two of them.
one HKT 3000 and one western version that can't read discs anymore
i would probably import one from japan by ebay if i were you, but the Facebook marketplace seems a good option too


Had a dreamcast back in the day and my brother convinced me to exchange it for a nintendo 64 with a few games, I'll always regret that.

I love the DC, it's 100% worth it imo, the problem is buying used consoles with lasers, it's a bit of a coin toss. I know there are people who can replace it, or maybe
you could replace it yourself, but I don't know how well that works.

Play Jet Set Radio HD for me. Its a fun graffiti and skate game.


Op here and I can say is that I definitely do not regret getting a Sega Dreamcast. I got one off a guy at a yard sale. Best decision ever. Lots of great games such as Shenmue and Sonic adventure.


I went and played this on my PC. I love the music, it's surprisingly hard with the momentum though.


Some people still like those videogames for the nostalgy.


I don't recommend it unless you can mod it to run off an SSD or flash drive, the GD-ROM laser dies quickly. Not sure why you'd ever sell a PS2 tho (assuming it's modded), you can never run out of games for that system, unless you're one of those normalfags who only plays sports and shooting games or w/e


Shenmue was a game I wanted to play for over a decade.
From game magazines to footage to reviews, it looked right up my alley.
Then I finally got a emulator and played it.
Boy was I disappointed. It just wasn't fun to me. Not even a little bit, not once.
Maybe it's because games have come a long way or because I played games that did what it did but better in every way first, but god what a let down when I finally got my hands on it.

That said a ton of other Dreamcast games lived up to the hype and were fantastic.
Makes me sad that Sega isn't even close to a major player as a developer and publisher anymore.
Now they are very mid in the industry and a bit too reliant on nostalgia and Sonic fanboys.


it's cool how sega was spawned from ww2 literally milking american veterans of their money with coin slot machines stationed in japan. from the time of that to when they released sega genesis, that is the same amount of time from when sega genesis was relased to now. time is crazy


Shenmue was never fun, it had the novelty of being some kind of realistic sims like/walking simulator, people like was "whoa" because you could live inside the game, but the gameplay itself is boring as shit.


You should play D2. It's a great horror game. Sorta like an FPS/RPG hybrid.


I knew some kids who had one. It was okay, I liked it more than the PS2 but the Gamecube and Xbox were more fun.


Why the fuck didn't you just emulate? There's so many neat enhancements now days with the games that there's literally no point in getting a Dreamcast with a pack of CDRs to burn games that are only going to fuck up because of the compressed data vs full emulation and not having to give scalpers all of your money that you could save for something better.

Interesting someone upped this thread. I've downloaded every single Dreamcast title ever released including JP ones and I'm currently exploring its game library. So far, to be brutally honest, I haven't found anything that interesting yet, but I've only just begun, we'll see how it goes. I've played about 8 hours of Evolution 2 and was unimpressed with it. Wrote a review of my experience here >>59642.

I've also played EGG some time ago and that game is really good. Unfortunately several threads on the archive are broken and you can't access my original post anymore but I did save my review of that one in an anon blog I used to save my game reviews, you can read it here; https://gameboy2017.wordpress.com/2019/08/08/206/. Definitely a game I recommend if you want to play some dreamcast stuff.

I've also played both Crazy Taxi titles for this console and they're really fun. I didn't write reviews on those because they're fairly popular titles even today and I don't think I have much to say about it. It's a very arcadey game and it works best if you play 30 min at a time, otherwise it might get a little bit repetitive. It's a very fun game though with a lot of replayability.

I've played a few hours of Radirgy, an interesting looking shmup with bullet hell bosses. I did enjoy it for its visuals and odd story (for a shmup anyways) but overall it's a shmup experience you can get with a lot of other games, from the Dreamcast itself and other consoles and PC. Nothing really stands out other than how it looks. Visually it's very unique and worth a shot because of that. I don't think people who really like and play lots of shmups will be impressed with it though. Its gameplay is really standard.

A game that did stand out to me is Rez, but I've only played a little of it at the time of this writing. It's a weird rail shooter where you can shoot enemies and they make a beat you can synchronize with the music. It felt a little gimmicky but I can't remember a game quite like it, especially from that era. I guess that makes it a unique gaming experience. I'll try to complete it sometime soon, I checked a video on it and it's a fairly short game.

Finally I’ve played a little bit of Bangai-O, a game I was looking for since I’m an admirer of many Treasure titles, specially the ones they did for the Sega Genesis. It’s a no-nonsense 'shoot everything you see on the screen' and it works really well. You’re this tiny mecha bringing down fire across every surface of the map. I think it deserves a full review, I’ll play more of it first. Btw if you’re emulating Bangai-O on the Dreamcast you’ll need the Dreamcast BIOS files, dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin otherwise it will lag a lot. With the BIOS in place it will run perfectly. You can find it on the internet archive.

And that’s that for now. I’ve watched a yt video quickly showcasing every single DC title and picked up about 50 that appealing to me for one reason or the other, I’ll be trying those first. We’ll see how it goes.


If you like JRPGs, Skies of Arcadia is p. good.

Forgot to say I've also played Rainbow Cotton and I don't know what it is with some of the Cotton games but a couple of them are completely broken. I'm a fan of the Cotton series but this one is virtually unplayable. It's hard to believe they had a chance to make a Cotton game for the Dreamcast and went to use the broken view of Panorama Cotton. Holy shit. Also hard to believe nobody noticed any problems during the production of this title. Look at this. Cotton completely covers your view! You can't see what you're shooting at, you can't see what's in front of you, can't aim, the notion of distance is really odd because you can't really tell how close you're to objects and even if you could, Cotton it so damn huge it's hard to navigate around anything anyways.

I don't get it how they would make the same mistake after the fiasco that was Panorama Cotton. What a pity.

Thanks, it's on my list, I'll try it eventually.
