Power Stone was the go to party game, just invite a few friends over and take turn beating the crap out of each other.
Nothing like dodging a chair thrown at you, stopping your friend from getting a Power Stone on the map and transforming into a beacon of ass kicking badassness.
A must have for anyone with a Dreamcast.

SEGA Memories: Remembering the launch of the Dreamcast

(https://thumbs.gfycat.com/DopeyThreadbareAmericancicada-size_restricted.gif)

Quote
I don’t think I’m overreacting when I say that the Dreamcast had the best game US launch line-ups ever.
Sadly, the Japanese got screwed over with Pen Pen Trilcelon, Godzilla Generations, July, and a bad port of Virtua Fighter 3tb.
But we here in the US, well we got lucky, SEGA announced they would be launching with 19 games that you would be able to pick up day one!

The Untold Story Of The Bug That Almost Sank The Dreamcast's North American Launch

(https://i.imgur.com/aiUqdu5.gif)

Quote
Former Sega tech staffer John Byrd discusses a bug which, he claims, has never been spoken about before now.
Days before the machine's North American launch in September 1999, he was getting feedback from journalists that certain games were causing their Dreamcast consoles to crash randomly, and that the games in question were all created by the publisher Midway.
While only Midway's games were encountering the crash, if Byrd couldn't find out exactly what was causing it, there was the danger that it could potentially be present in other launch games – or future ones.

Recently someone hacked Capcom and got terabytes upon terabytes of hidden company data, including the source code to a lot of Capcom games.
It looks like the hackers will slow drip information on Capcom games and one of the new updates is some of the games that the company is working on.
One of the big ones that most SEGA fans will be into is a ‘Power Stone Remake’ which was slated to release in Q3 2024, so years off.

Rez Producer Tetsuya Mizuguchi Working on
a “New Adventure with Synesthesia” with Enhance Games

While Mizuguchi’s works have focused on music-puzzle games, he has also been the producer on a hack and slash game (Ninety Nine Nights), and several racing games (Sega Rally Championship, Manx TT Superbike, and Sega Rally 2).
As such, when Mizuguchi says “adventure,” he may very well be hinting at the game’s genre.

Today, the DreamcasticChannel on YouTube (via Kotaku) is showcasing an unreleased tech demo from the year 2000 for a title tentatively called “The Simpsons: Bug Squad!”
It’s from the long-defunct Red Lemon Studios, and it’s remarkable how much the game’s cel-shaded graphics look like the show.

By scooping out the insides and replacing them with a color screen and a Raspberry Pi Zero, the makers of the Circuit Gem have kept the classic design while enabling support playing games designed for the NES, SNES, Game Boy Advance, Sega Game Gear, Mega Drive, and Master System, and other game consoles.
Before pulling out your wallet to buy one though, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Its interesting because they really got the game to resemble the original game in tone of colors but the art style that has now become signature Lizardcube is still there.
I think they did a good job of having a great blend and personally would be stoked if Lizardcube made Garou: Mark of Wolves 2.

Today marks 20 years since SEGA left the home console business

Quote
Back in 2018, SEGA hit a milestone as a company when on December 18 they had been in the third party business for as long as they were in the first party home console business.
Some fans have clung onto those early days, bemoaning what has since become of the company, though if you have been following SEGAbits for the past ten plus years you’d know that while we have fond memories of those glory days we believe SEGA is still a great company.

Happy 22 Years Anniversary for Akihabara Dennou-gumi Pata Pies !

(https://segaretro.org/images/thumb/5/53/ADKPP_DC_JP_Box_Front.jpg/605px-ADKPP_DC_JP_Box_Front.jpg)

Quote
A breeding game based by a popular SF school comedy serialized in Kodansha’s shojo manga magazine “Nakayoshi” and aired on TV anime.
The player is a first-year student attending Akihabara Junior High School.
The purpose is to expand the friend network by letting your pet robot “PataPi” play with your friend PataPi in the game.
By “playing” with friends, a fun cartoon-style event occurs.
Sub-events such as receiving e-mail are also available.
It also supports visual memory, and you can enjoy mini-games where PataPi gives you “fortune-telling” and “tell you”.

Digital Eclipse is looking into re-releasing Marvel vs. Capcom 2 following online campaign from Maximilian

Quote
Stephen Frost, executive producer for Digital Eclipse, said that he "would love to work on an updated release of MvC2."
This of course is still far from a guarantee that it'll end up happening, but maybe with enough support and noise we can help it become so though it'd be premature to start celebrating now given the series' complicated history.

Nobody is really sure what to make of this at the time of writing, as Luigi is (and always has been) Nintendo's intellectual property.
It's likely some sort of joke or perhaps he was even a placeholder - but it's certainly there and we're guessing this was never intended to be shown outside the walls of Sega.

It's the earliest example of good party brawl game, people have fond memories of it.
Especially if the game was played with family or friends, the nostalgia factor would be more impactful.
Just like Super Smash Bros, the fighting game's was designed to multiple people playing together.

Power Stone 3 does indeed need to happen.
But no representative in MvC series was kinda sign how Capcom think about the series.
Capcom now had stuck to Street Fighter and Monster Hunter.
Even I as Darkstalkers fan, that its characters got representative in MvC series, already gave up my hope on Darkstalkers' sequel.

Maybe they regard it too kiddy of a fighting game to take seriously? Despite that Smash Bros ain't all blood and muscle-rippled men (most of the time).

Khinsider Has Removed 500+ Albums Related to Sega

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/SpaceChannel5CD20anniversary.png)

Quote
"Segapocalypse!
Wave Master, the company that manages Sega's music, has contacted me and asked me to remove lots of albums related to Sega.
At the end of the day, over 500 albums were removed, including Sonic, OutRun, and others.
Unfortunately, this even included fan made compilation albums for games that have no commercial releases, which, quite frankly, makes absolutely no sense.
If you were wondering why some albums have disappeared on the site, this is why."

How did characters like Ruby Heart, Amingo, Cable and Marrow come to join Marvel vs. Capcom 2's iconic roster?

(https://c.tenor.com/BfldKvRCF2IAAAAC/capcom-marvel-vs-capcom.gif)

Quote
"As for Amingo, we noticed the Capcom side didn't have any non-human characters capable of really crazy movements, so he was designed in order to fulfill that role," continued Nakae.
The developers also wanted a brand new character to serve as one of the game's protagonists similarly to how Ryu and Cyclops were poised before, which is where Ruby Heart came in.

If you own any of these 5 retro fighting games,
you might be sitting on some good money and not know it

Originally released back in June 2000, Marvel 2 continues to grip the attention of fighting game community members and fans everywhere, with initiatives to see it make a return still going around right now.
Even buying disc only, you're looking at somewhere between $110 - $130 for this gem, but if you're a completionist and want the whole enchilada — game, case, manual, and registration card — you can expect to pay upwards of $200 (as much as $250 in some cases).

Incredible mod puts Psylocke in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
and gives the X-Men rep a unique bag of tricks

(https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/001/514/837/5d6.gif)

Quote
It's demonstrated during the short clip that Psylocke is capable of hitting all 3 level 1 hypers together in a single combo without assistance from other characters.
Her level 3 hyper creates illusion shadows that mimic the properties of her attacks, but all of their attacks can be blocked as mids to prevent solo unblockables.

Castlevania: Resurrection prototype for Dreamcast unearthed after 22 years

(https://i.ibb.co/0hcF8LN/Sonia-Belmont-from-Castlevania-Resurrection.jpg)

Back when the SEGA Dreamcast came out, there were a lot of games that never got actual releases.
Over the years some of these games leaked and fans have been able to experience “what could have been”.
Now, 22 years after its initial reveal, Castlevania: Resurrection for Dreamcast has finally had its prototype leaked to a French Dreamcast preservation website.

Damn, Agartha looked beautiful. I'm imagine it was an adventure treasure hunting game like Tomb Raider but perhaps with some survival elements.. though survival games did not had a well known scene back then so Agartha might had been Sega's idea for a Tomb Raider answer.

Dunno much about Castlevania but it looks good. Reminds me of that N64 game I only played a bit of.

I imagine Geist Force was Sega's "answer" to StarFox.

I played a lot of Half-Life, so dunno how to comment that.

I wonder how that Emulator would of worked? Like, would it come with some sort of cartridge port?

I guess a generic dogfighting game? I dunno enough about planes to comment. Though would of been cool if the Tornado was an unlockable plane.

If I had to guess, Scud Racer would of probably been a cross between Daytona USA and F-Zero.

Indeed. The title alone isn't interesting, but the game turned out to be cool.

I wonder how that Emulator would of worked? Like, would it come with some sort of cartridge port?

I think the emulator was first meant to be used by SEGA themself.
The one in SEGA Smash Pack.
But then came out the idea,
since it could be used to play other Mega Drive games too,
then why not showing them to third party companies?
In case they wanted to make their own (officially released) Smash Pack
(Capcom Smash Pack, Namco Smash Pack, Taito Smash Pack, etc)

Eno's use of limited edition runs was unheard of in Japan at the time.
“There's a disconnect between Japanese developers and fans in the ‘90s … and it was uncommon for developers to interact with fans,” explains George Perez, founder of SEGABits.
