It's probably worth just playing it. These rumours of Shenmue HD have been going around for years and still no sign of them. I hope they come out, but who knows.

PULSEMAN!  I love how you can travel using currents of electricity to get around platforms, very original style of gameplay. Even bouncing off walls is fun!  I like how you can charge up attacks too.  The level select gives it a Mega Man vibe.  Only downfall is that there isn't much variety of levels but it makes up for quantity with quality.  The game is short but sweet.  Music is very energetic and electric sounding straight out of Pokemon in some places (it is made by the same people after all), but totally fits the Genesis/Mega Drive.  Digitized voices are on par with if not better than even Comix Zone, full lines of dialogue too.  Visuals are stunning but loud.  Colors can be harmful to your eyes if you stare at the game for too long, especially if you are sensitive to seizure inducing flashing.  Other than that, it's gorgeous.


ASTAL is easy as a platformer, but beautiful and very detailed.  It's a Saturn game that is easier on the eyes too when compared to Pulseman, it's also not as fast paced.  I know it seems weird to compare the two back to back but this is how I experienced both.   ASTAL being on a disc based console has anime-esque fmv cutscenes with chibi style characters with loads of personality and charm.  Music is pretty ambient too, very 90s.   Like a lot of Sega's games in the 90s, it's weird, but cool. 


I don't have any current gen systems so playing newer titles difficult at the moment.  Meanwhile I've been hunting down older titles that I missed over the years for consoles I already own and I'm finding a lot of good ones.

I've been tempted to start up Shenmue 2, but after the HD rumors surfaced, I think I'm going to wait.

Clocking at a good 55 hrs, I've come to Valkyria Revolution's end. Not giving anything away, just that the ending was a bit of a tear jerker. I'm not going to bash critics or anything, I just think VR is probably one of SEGA's most underrated and misunderstood games this year. Like I mentioned before, it had the Resident Evil 6 problem. It's clear that SEGA wanted to use some elements from Valkyria Chronicles in a much more action RPG oriented fashion, but focus groups and early demo reactions mentioned that game was much too different from it's cousin, so to speak. Hence this strange hybrid that takes a while to get used to but perfectly playable. And pretty fun once you. Use of magic, in the form of weaponized ragnite makes pistols and rocket launchers almost useless, but they still serve a purpose in combat. Characters are clichéd, true but varied enough that I care  not to have them die on me.

TGS in a few days time. So, I'm guessing if there's anything, it'll be said here.

http://www.dreamcastlive.net/blogs/post/Monaco-Grand-Prix-Online-Is-Revived/

 Shuouma is back with another online game resurrected! This time it's Monaco Grand Prix Online (or Monaco Grand Prix: Racing Simulation 2: Online if you want the ridiculously long official title). This is a version of Monaco Grand Prix that was released exclusively in Europe and added online multiplayer. It's actually a very rare game so you may need to break out the CD-R spindle if you want to give this one a go.

The game features 17 tracks, two modes, and supports up to six players. The modes include both single race and championship. The latter will likely appeal most to hardcore fans of the game as it can take up to an hour to complete. The game also has online leaderboards so if competing for the fastest time on any given track is your thing, this should appease you.


This server is still a work in progress so there may be some bugs that have yet to be squashed. Also some features such as the online rankings are not yet implemented. Regardless, Monaco Online will make a nice addition to the Dreamcast's online library, especially for simulation racing enthusiasts. Be sure to send a thank you to Shuouma for expanding the Dreamcast online gaming library once again!


If you'd like to jump online for some high-speed simulation racing, be sure to check out the Connection Guide  for instructions on how to connect.

Firewatch

Am I missing something here? I don't quite understand all the praise this game has got as it felt very light on story and content. Sure, it looked pretty and started by hitting the right notes for a big absorbing story, but it just seems to fizzle out at the end to a really generic explanation. Sure, it's still decent, but nothing more then that I'd say.

You know what's really good though?  The Firemen for Super Famicom.  Other than that, maybe Backdraft for Sega CD?  :p
