SEGA Talk Podcast: Power Stone (1999)



Quote
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.

Capcom’s Hideaki Itsuno wants to make a new Power Stone on Nintendo Switch



Quote
“I still get messages from fans about the game.
People tweet requests to me to make another Power Stone, which I’d love to do if I got the chance.
It would be a particularly great fit for the Nintendo Switch.”

SEGA Memories: Remembering the launch of the Dreamcast



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



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.

Capcom leak reveals Power Stone Remake in the works



Quote
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




Quote
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.

Here’s the never-before-seen Simpsons video game dreamt up for Sega Dreamcast

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TC4nD0qxUM

Quote
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.

Circuit Gem is a handheld game system stuffed in a Sega Dreamcast VMU



Quote
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.

Streets of Rage 4 artists release Garou: Mark of the Wolves 2 concept art video,
now I want this to be real…




Quote
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.
