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.

The two became friends through chatting on the Dreamcast online service nearly 20 years ago.
The console was equipped with a standard telephone line-based modem for gaming, browsing the web, email, and of course group chats.

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

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

"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.

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).

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

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)

Yuji Naka Killed "Dreamcast's Star Fox" (Geist Force), Says Former Sega Producer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DTULx8RvME

Quote
The game in question is Geist Force, a Star Fox-style on-rails shooter which was first shown at E3 1998, prior to the Dreamcast's release in Japan.
The game was intended to be a launch title for North America, and prior to Subotnick's recent revelation, was believed to have been cancelled due to a lack of confidence in the game, missed deadlines and disagreements within the development team.
According to Subotnick, this isn't the whole picture.

Quote
"Reicast was a dreamcast emulator (2013 - 2021), derived from the nullDCe codebase
Reicast was maintained by Stefanos Kornilios Mitsis Poiitidis, and received several contributions from other developers over its lifetime
Reicast is now discontinued, due to large part on the libretro drama/fork of 2019, general community toxicity around emudev and open source, lack of interested developers and a wish on skmp's part to move on with other projects in his life.
We hope we brought you back fond memories, and/or that you got to experience the magic of the Dreamcast through this project :)
There are several other actively developed Dreamcast Emulation projects, with at least one of them a derivative of Reicast, which you can use."

The new Crazy Taxi has already been in development for over a year and the Tokyo-based entertainment group aims to release it within two to three years, the people said, asking not to be named as the information is not yet public.
It was named alongside Jet Set Radio in Sega’s annual report a year ago on a list of intellectual property assets that Sega wanted to recapitalize by bringing them up to date.
Both new games are in the early stages of creation and could still be canceled, the people said.

Wait... so Sega is coming to Fortnite? I dunno how I feel about that. ANd I'm not talking about the fact I just don't find the game that interesting to play.

From what I heard Fortnite is trying to be it's own Disney or something by collecting as many IPs as it can to adapt into it's own universe for marketable means. So I dunno how I feel about Sega giving Fortnite some of it's characters.

No.. no.. You misread the title.
SEGA is inspired to follow Fortnite's recipe for success.

Fortnite has become the role model for many game companies : free to play, it’s available across platforms, hosts large multiplayer contests and includes extras like vehicles, construction and social events on top of the usual combat, spurring player purchases of in-game items.
That's why they prepare Super Game initiative, with online version of Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio as the first entries.

The Simpsons Road Rage was a definite copy, but it sort of had the right idea.

I really do think that Crazy Taxi’s gameplay is fun and I definitely believe that it demonstrates pretty brilliant arcade game design. …That’s the thing: we’re dealing with an incredibly fun gameplay experience that desperately needs a game to be built around it.
Though Simpsons: Hit and Run may not have been considered a classic, it actually did a great job of taking the Crazy Taxi formula and putting it into an actual game. Once you did well enough in one level (a portion of Springfield), you’d unlock another level, which was a different part of the city, and so on.
This brought to the table a feeling of progression, something I think Crazy Taxi could use.

A Crazy Taxi game based on a rip off of a Crazy Taxi game? Why not at this point. =P
Does make me wonder if they'll consider a competitive multiplayer modes.
Or if they consider a story mode, how will that work?

A  multiplayer mode may where there is a competition on who could make most money on some period of time, or who brought the most passengers, or just simply racing between two cars (but that will be boring).

Story mode would need enemies or rivals... Because if the story's just an endless business management simulator like Crazy Taxi Tycoon (https://segabits.com/blog/2018/02/28/crazy-taxi-gazillionaire-changes-its-name-to/), it wouldn't be interesting at all for people who crave suspense and drama in the story.

Hm... remember Die Hard with a Vengence from the Saturn game Die Hard Trilogy (https://diehard.fandom.com/wiki/Die_Hard_Trilogy)? What if a story mode had something like that? Taxi drivers who have to make a living while also assign jobs to ram stuff and make them explode. Maybe an enemy coroprate... or just Uber drivers or something.

Competitive mode, I can imagine 2-6 drivers driving around the city. The aim of the game is to make more money than your competitors and ramming them is fairplay.

Publisher Tate Multimedia has announced that Kao (pronounced K-O, by the way) the Kangaroo will be launching on Switch on May 27th, 2022.
First available on the SEGA Dreamcast in 2000, the series went dormant in 2005 after the launch of Kao the Kangaroo: Mystery of the Volcano on Windows.
The new game looks to reboot the franchise with fresh visuals in Kao's biggest adventure yet.

I wouldn't go that far to make them spies, espionage or anything. Or at least they will occaisonally work for some law enforcement. Like some of your passengers to pick up can either be a cop, a terrorist or thrill seekers that will ask for an objective other than a destination. Such as "Stop that car!" or "Crash into that!" or "Drive off this ramp!" sort of thing.

As for a proper story, I dunno. I imagine most taxicab businesses hate Uber (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uber) so maybe a parody of Uber (I'm thinking "Oobre") made into an antagonist.

Yukawa Moto Senmu no Otakara Sagashi - English Translation Patch

(https://www.romhacking.net/translations/dc/images/6507screenshot1.png)

Quote
Former Managing Director Hidekazu Yukawa has lost his promotional Dreamcast material that he can’t possibly show to the public! It’s up to the player, unnamed Sega fan, to help him and search for his missing items! For some unknown reason, they’ve been split into six parts each, so here’s a shovel and good luck!!

Yukawa’s Treasure Hunt was a promotional game near the Dreamcast’s launch where players who solved a weekly puzzle between March 20th, 1999 and April 11th, 1999 could submit their victory online and be entered into a raffle. That raffle has long ended, so the servers do not work, but the game itself stands as an interesting piece of history.

The game is fully playable in English, including the VMU minigame, though a few menu times are missing translations. The README has a short glossary to reference.

Yep. Simpsons Hit & Run maybe a knock-off of Crazy Taxi but it had good idea that Crazy Taxi didn't do. If a new Crazy Taxi game had passengers that give objectives other than drop-off points it would certainly make the game more crazy.

Like, imagine if one of your passengers was one of these guys (https://postal.fandom.com/wiki/Terrorists) and they tell you to find a specific phone box, parked car or other street-side object and to ram it to cause an explosion... and depending on how fast you get to the target and how quick to make it explode they will give you the wage for it.
Or if one of your passengers is a police officer and they say "Follow that car!" and you must tail them to a certain location or something like that.
Or passengers who simply ask you to do stunts for them or jump off ramps and such and will pay if they're satisfied.

These kind of passengers can take up a third of regular passengers who want to go somewhere.

Yes, that's gonna be interesing, unique passengers with strange requests.
Just like on Elite Beat Agents,
then the story could be about the clients/passengers, not about the agents/taxi drivers.

You drive up to a passenger who turns out to be a grey alien wearing a hospital gown.

"Get me away from those black cars!"

Thus you must survive a high-speed chase throughout the city for a time limit and if you surpass the time limit without your taxi being pinned or destroyed the alien will give you a taxi fare.

I don't think a "good/bad gauge" would be needed. I mean I liked how Sega would put intricate effort of side details to a game, such as lives and society of Nightopians being subtly effected by how you play NiGHTS games, but for a Crazy Taxi game, I think it should be like Postal II (https://postal.fandom.com/wiki/POSTAL_2), a game where the town gets more crazier as it goes along.

It's developed and published by Capcom afterall.
But it was exclusive to Dreamcast so I understand if people misremember it as SEGA's.

I knoew Sparkster and Earthworm Jim were not SEGA franchises. I figured Cooking Mama was Nintendo given not just because she debuted on Nintendo consoles but looks like something from WarioWare or Rhythm Heaven in design.

And probably also because Cooking Mama is a family friendly game series.
SEGA also has games that looks like WarioWare or Rhythm Heaven in design,
but since they're not really family friendly games they won't be misremembered even though they're on NDS.

Capcom's Dino Crisis coming to PlayStation Plus Classics Catalog, PlayStation Store banner suggests

(https://segaretro.org/images/thumb/2/25/DinoCrisis_DC_US_Box_Front.jpg/601px-DinoCrisis_DC_US_Box_Front.jpg)

Quote
Users can see the banner by logging into an Asia-based PlayStation Network account with PlayStation Plus benefits on a PlayStation 5, as Asia is currently the only region where the new service is available, and accessing the “PlayStation Plus” section of “Game Library.”
Despite Regina being featured in the banner, Dino Crisis is currently not available as part of the PlayStation Plus Classics Catalog, which features emulated PlayStation classics playable on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

Rub Rabbits doesn't look WarioWare or Rhythm Heaven in design to me, though it is likely inspired by the micro-game genre that WarioWare is known for.

Graphically no, but gameplay it's kinda the same in core : collection of mini games.
Same thing to some of Rabbids games.
Games with this genre are mostly on Nintendo platform.

Kao The Kangaroo Artist Talks Redesigning A Mascot For The Modern Age

Kao has grown up. Almost. He is older now, for sure, but not much; just more stubborn, mouthy, and youthfully brave.
He was never a superhero, but rather an adventurous kid with pure motivations, and we wanted to keep it this way.

Dreamcast version of the game is what made him popular back then.

I just didn't had that game for the Dreamcast. I knew of Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, heck even Ty the Tazmanian Tiger. Just never heard of this kangaroo. To me he seems like he was inspired by Crash and Ty.

I never played their games back then when SEGA's still console business,
they were never in SEGA consoles or arcade.
But I did recognize them from game magazines.
Especially from ads of them trying to be edgy or cool.

SEGA considered a Dreamcast or Saturn Mini but it would have been "a difficult and expensive process"

(https://preview.redd.it/6pbiyq9jkul31.jpg?width=640&crop=smart&auto=webp&s=7a0a6c2ee22a68887915d6e52bae2ec09f81a7d4)

Quote
The company did "explore the idea" of a Dreamcast or Saturn Mini but ultimately decided not to pursue it when Sega discovered manufacturing mini consoles had become more expensive post-pandemic (and post semiconductor shortage, of course).
Okunari added that the Mega Drive Mini's internals "can't adequately handle Saturn games", and manufacturing new chipsets would be prohibitively expensive, joking that if they'd proceeded with the idea, the cost of buying a Dreamcast of Saturn Mini could rival that of a modern-day console.
But because the Mega Drive Mini 2 was based upon the existing Mini hardware, it seemed more "manageable".

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/756503521498759318/983188025712467969/RIP_Hidekazu_Yukawa.png)

Hidekazu Yukawa passed last June of pneumonia but his family kept the news private.
It is said he was sick for the past 5 years and was relaxing at home.

Those rumors on Hidekazu Yukawa, are they true?

About his death yes. Or is there any other rumour that I wasn't aware?

Just the rumour on his death. I hope he RIP. I remember his Japanese commercials how he strived for Dreamcast to succeed.

These Ken memes. Has Ken became poor or something?

Not confirmed yet, but judging from his unclean looks, he's either becoming poor or still rich but just don't want to stay in house anymore, becoming a street fighter literally.
According to the story leak, it's probably the later.
What's the point on going home if Eliza and Mel weren't there, for Ken his family used to be his everything, even the source of his strength.

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/756503521498759318/983924509373526026/Ken_leak.png)

This is anticlimatic since according to the official manga, in Street Fighter III Ken was the best character, he even could beat Gill.
He also beat Ryu when fighting in front of Mel because his love for family is source of his power (he usually tied or lose to Ryu if they're fighting alone).
After beaten by Ken, Ryu then had a new teacher (Oro) and becoming stronger he finally could defeat Akuma.
That's why Street Fighter VI's Ryu has a kinda similar appearance to Oro.
Street Fighter VI's happened after Street Fighter III btw, Street Fighter IV and V were happened before Street Fighter III.

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/c5/69/d5/c569d585cbd1bf4b590ccd9021c006de.jpg)

Ken's probably back on his feet again in Street Fighter VI ending but Americans do love a comeback story so may be that's why the meme is so popular.

I also thought Ken got really successful and settled for a material life while Ryu continued on with his vigorous training. In a way it exemplifies the difference in their moralities and interest but doesn't exemplifies a "one is right, one is wrong" choice of lifestyle between two who shared the same origins.

Yeah, but according to Akuma, Ken's way of embracing both training and material life is wrong.

"You are hindered by too many earthly attachments to ever be a complete fighter.
Is it a child? A woman?"
"Until you have nothing to lose, you will never fight without hesitation."

(https://i.ibb.co/5RkdBjz/Earthly-Attachment.jpg)

And somehow this was proven in SNK vs Capcom: SVC Chaos.

(https://i.pinimg.com/474x/6b/4e/de/6b4edefdb767fcf9da3e8a78d8d56071.jpg)

In that game (and comic version) there's a playable version of brainwashed Ken when he thought his wife and kid were dead.
With nothing to lose anymore, this Violent Ken is kinda a what if Ken's only walking in the training life.
The result is he's a lot stronger than the normal Ken but also more evil.

But if you think about it, Akuma's logic is only sound in Akuma's way. Yes he is correct to say that if he let go of his Earthly attachments he would be a more accomplished fighter, but it's also his Earthly attachments, that being his family and their wellbeing, is what both grounds him and give him strength.

When he thought his family was dead it looks like the Satsui no Hado got the better of him. So yes he's free from the burdens of family but also without the foundation they provided for him.

And of course, the "remove earthly attachments to be a better something or other" can be said for just about anything that involved enlightenment. As Avatar the Last Airbender has taught me, just because enlightenment means letting go of the things you love doesn't mean giving up on them or to no longer love them. Only then can you truly love when not tangled with obsession.

Akuma may sound convinced with his own thinking but the truth is he kinda also wanted to be proven wrong.
Akuma almost never smile or may be he never smile at all.
But he finally smile in the final battle with Ryu, when Ryu (afer become Oro's student) finally could beat him without Satsui no Hado.
It wasn't explained why he smiles though.

Still probably the strongest fighter in the Street Fighter series was Oro, strong enough to be Ryu's 2nd master.
He always restrict himself to fight with one hand (sealed the other one) so that others could have a chance in defeating him.

Did Oro let go of his earthly attachments too to become this strong?
Hard to tell.
While he's homeless and always train himself, he still enjoy watching beautiful girls and eating delicious food.

I always found the definition of "enlightment" an iffy deal to me. Don't get me wrong I'm sure it's as glorious as the monks and gurus say but it's like you have to give up most of your everything to be "enlightened" and "harmonized" which makes me ask what about self identity and personality? I mean yeah you're at ultimate peace of mind but when you let go of everything that grounds you what do you have left? Even if earthly attachments are regarded negative at least not everyone have the same attachments as everyone else. You know what I mean?

Then again, what do I know about enlightenment? I may be bound to my earthly attachments and personal vices but I am happy and at peace with how things are going for me.

Adyasanthi said Enlightenment is a destructive process.
It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier.
Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth.
It’s seeing through the facade of pretense.

Happy and at peace with current things.
In these modern times I think those are better than constantly struggling to find enlightment to the point it drives us crazy.
Time has changed a lot compared to the old times when human could live without identity or technologies.

Treasure Turns 30: Three Decades of Subverting Genres

Treasure might have made games for the hardcore devotee, but in actuality, their games are playable by anyone.
All that’s needed is the patience to learn the systems that differ so much from what many gamers were used to in more traditional takes on the genres Treasure was tackling.
Radiant Silvergun begins as a very difficult, very complicated game: give it the time it deserves, however, and the systems not only make sense, but reveal themselves to be both elegant and rewarding.

That's true. "Ignorance is bliss" is often regarded as foolish but at the same time it still has it's merits and comforts. I'd rather be ignorant at an on coming apocalyptic destruction that I have absolutely nothing to do about, that be aware everything and everyone I know will die.

Sound like Android 17 and her sister, Android 18, in Dragon Ball Super.
They just want to enjoy their life after becoming full human (their bombs got removed), not interested in saving/ruling the world or preventing the apocalypse.
They won't mind if the world came to end.
"If everyone gets erased because our heroes losing in Tournament of Power then it cannot be helped."

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/56/af/72/56af7251034fb9d067e291dacbba3b38.gif)

Goku has to convince or trick them to help him saving their universe in the Tournament of Power (the losing team would have their universe be erased).
Android 18 accepts after Goku lied to her and her husband, Krilin, about money being the prize.
Android 17 accepts to fight in the Tournament of Power after knowing Krillin will participate, as he feels he owes him a debt for asking Shenron to have their bombs removed.

In the end, surprisingly enough Android 17 is the winner of Tournament of Power,not Goku, not Freeza, not another stronger fighters from another universe.
He who at first doesn't give a damn about the fate of their universe make a sacrifice to save their universe.

They were more selfish than ignorant though.
If there was a meteor heading for Earth and I had the superpowers to stop it then I would. But if I was just as human as you and me and nothing can stop it then what's the point of knowing of our oncoming doom if it just makes our final hours full of misery and hopelessness?

The Androids simply believe "life is good enough as it is, why should I help save the world?" when logically if the world is doomed, so is their lives. They just figure "If you (Goku and his friends) can't do it then there's no point trying."
As the end of the Tournament of Power proves they made all the difference and they would of allowed the destruction of everything they attained if they just sit back and did nothing.

May be we don't even know ourselves, how good or bad we are, until we're being pushed in the corner or facing the pressure in the eyes.
Android 17 and 18 don't consider them as good guys, but then somehow they proved otherwise.
It's also thanks to Krilin though, he's the first one to show them kindness.

I've been busy for the past 72 days since my last update to the Nakoruru translation patch thread over on the Dreamcast-Talk forums.
The task? Implement a new, half-width font.
I'm not ashamed to admit I'm beaming with pride and joy right now.

Krilin is basically the strongest human on the earth.

Video game legend Bernie Stolar, former president of Sega of America, has passed away at the age of 75.

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/756503521498759318/990626140823617608/bernie-stolar.jpg)

Quote
I met him when he was president and chief operating officer of Sega of America, where he helped lead the development and launch of the Sega Dreamcast.
He was one of the more blunt and honest — as well as memorable — executives that I met in the game industry.
“When I got to Sega I immediately said, ‘We have to kill Saturn. We have to stop Saturn and start building the new technology.’
That’s what I did. I brought in a new team of people and cleaned house. There were 300-some-odd employees and I took the company down to 90 employees to start rebuilding,” Stolar said.
Stolar helped lead the development and launch of the Dreamcast.
One of Stolar’s top moves at the time was to acquire Visual Concepts for Sega of America and create 2K Sports.

All story dialogue, menus, and extra content is translated.
The only thing that isn’t translated is the names and the logo during the opening credits sequence.

They did make one.
It's called Pocketstation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PocketStation).
Only released in Japan because Japanese did love this kind of Mini / Micro things
(Tamagotchi is the popular example).

Chocobo World mini game.
It's like Chao but with Chocobo instead
and for collecting item instead of raising Chao.
This mini game compability of course was removed in Remastered or Port Version of FFVIII.

Yoot Saito, the Seaman creato,r would love to but all decision is SEGA's.
He didn’t rule out a spiritual successor but said the average player isn’t ready for a brand-new genre.
Still at leats this year the franchise's back as ASMR (http://segabits.com/blog/2022/05/14/seaman-is-back-introducing-seaman-asmr/)

Yep, even me (as a VS fighting game lover that hate SEGA ditch the 6-buttons Saturn controller for VMU-based controller) have to embrace Dreamcast due to its glorious VS fighting game library :

Marvel vs Capcom 2
Super heroes are huge things in that era.
This game went crazy with having 56 playable characters.

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/2e/4b/9b/2e4b9bc47b6cf37501666d15dce32848.png)

Street Fighter III
IGN (https://sea.ign.com/dragon-ball-fighterz/188953/feature/the-10-best-fighting-games) said this is the best fighting game of all time.

(https://i.pinimg.com/474x/17/9c/01/179c011347eff95e2d5e10104ce41373--street-fighter-iii-daigo.jpg)

Virtua Fighter 3tb
One of Dreamcast (JP) launch games, becoming one of the best-selling Dreamcast games in Japan

(https://segaretro.org/images/thumb/2/2f/VirtuaFighter3tbDCUSInlay.jpg/767px-VirtuaFighter3tbDCUSInlay.jpg)

Soul Calibur

The first perfect 3D fighting game in console with incredibly smooth 60 frame per second game engine.

(https://i.pinimg.com/564x/a5/f2/cf/a5f2cfd299797400e18b383731a5a288--sega-dreamcast-console.jpg)

Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000
Capcom vs. SNK 2 Millionaire Fighting

Crossover of the best fighting game franchises.
It even has Millenium in it title to represents the era.

(https://segaretro.org/images/thumb/d/d7/CvS2_DC_JP_Box_front.jpg/600px-CvS2_DC_JP_Box_front.jpg)

Also of course Power Stone series.
The Dreamcast brawler that foresaw Fortnite and Overwatch (https://www.theguardian.com/games/2019/aug/14/power-stone-sega-dreamcast-fortnite-overwatch).

(https://i.pinimg.com/736x/73/62/2c/73622c02dc94839da89dab3571d5732a--action-game-video-games.jpg)

I could still go on with Guilty Gear X, Project Justice, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Dead or Alive 2, Garou: Mark Of The Wolves, etc... etc...
But the point is Dreamcast is a "Jack of All Trade" system (all genres are there) and somehow it could master them all.

I think Saito should at least consider remaking Seaman 1 first. And given Seaman 1 ends up your seaman leaving you for a jungle hidden behind the tank and clips of Seaman 2 taking place on a tropical jungle, I can imagine he can easily combine both games into one.

Though wouldn't be the sake without Nimoy.

If I'm not mistaken, he proposed one for Nintendo 3DS back then but SEGA said no.
Guess after that he just moved on and focus on something else.

The NDS or N3DS would of been ideal for Seaman due to the stylus and microphone.

I was thinking, what about Seaman for VR? Able to stand in the dark room with the tank, tap on the glass, talk to your fish, pick 'em up, feed 'em grubs etc.

Maybe add instruments and toys to entertain your seaman with.

If any third party company interested in publishing it, sure.
SEGA themself weren't interested in VR, it wasn't that popular in Japan.
Even Space Channel 5 VR, VR Figure From Shining, and the postponed Panzer Dragoon VR weren't published by SEGA.

It is dissapointing that the classic Sega games that are getting remakes are from third party developers and not Sega themselves. Like "I can't be bothered, you do it."

But it is nice Sega still putting their names on them and calling them legitimate, even if all they did was say yes.

Yeah, and I love that almost all of them are a success.
Wonder Boy: Dragon's Trap, Streets of Rage 4, Monster Boy, Asha in Monster World, HotD Remake, and Panzer Dragoon Remake.
Especially The House of the Dead: Remake
It has earned the highest post-premiere sales revenue in Forever Entertainment's history thus far (https://twitter.com/wiki_dead/status/1559994248732319746), according to their Q2 2022 report.

Sadly the VR games aren't sold as good as them.
The reason is simple : the platform is too limited.
Wonder Boy: Dragon's Trap, Streets of Rage 4, Monster Boy, Asha in Monster World, HotD Remake, and Panzer Dragoon Remake are multi platforms, available almost anywhere.

I believe there is high potential for the VR market, but I believe in order for their to be a successful market VR developers should consider marketing towards one another than competing towards one another.

Take Blade & Sorcery (https://store.steampowered.com/app/629730/Blade_and_Sorcery/) by WarpFrog for example. It's mostly a sandbox game. Just basic maps to fight in and that's that. Barely any story mode. That's because the developers have gone all in on the VR physics and gameplay being as realistic and as satisfactory as possible.

Then there's games like Corrupted Hospital (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1440870/Corrupted_Hospital__Part1/) and Silent Mansion (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1437030/Silent_Mansion__Part2/) by MINO ENTERTAINMENT INC. These VR games do have a decent story but the VR experience is horrible and in truth the developers are struggling with a small team.

Now instead of WarpFrog keeping their VR build to themselves while other VR games struggle with their own build, what if WarpFrog release their build on the Unity Asset Store? They can still put a price on it but allow other game developers to use it for their projects. That way developers like MINO could concentrate on the quality of their game more and simply download B&S VR Asset to build around it.

If VR developers help one another out than be competitive with one another, then the VR market can have a more sturdy leg to go on. And once the VR market is in full swing then these developers can go back to traditional competitive business.

On a Sega-related suggestion, this is why I believe Sega should consider a "Sega Superstars VR (https://sega.fandom.com/f/p/3100000000000000319)" game, a selection of Sega-themed games for VR, and maybe include some demo's to genuine Sega VR games.

This proposed adaptor was not meant to be a physical cable linking the two systems, like with the Neo-Geo Pocket Color-to-Dreamcast cable which did release.
Rather, this was a scanner that would be attached to the side port on a GBC, normally used for the multiplayer link cable.
This would scan the TV screen for special bar codes that would appear at certain points in the Sakura Wars Dreamcast remake, which would then unlock extra content in Sakura Wars GB.

It's more working with Erik Feig, rather than Picturestart.
He's more known than his company.
Btw.. Picturestart's also working on adaptations of Naruto and Borderlands

Pokemon is very popular.
Imagine what happened if there was an official VMU-based Pokemon game.

But why.. I don't like Naruto but I still would prefer if it's success and could help more anime (like Uncle from Another World) to be made live action...

If this was in VMU and could save Dreamcast back then I had no problem with it.
A little sacrifice to make SEGA still in console business.

I dunno, I mean, I think some anime is better off as anime and may not translate well into live-action.
There's a few reasons why Naruto never clicked well to me, why I find it an obnoxious, loud, colourful mess that's an insult to ninja culture. But not they're gonna put that colourful mess on the big screen. Good luck getting Sexy Technique (https://naruto.fandom.com/wiki/Sexy_Technique) pass the "woke" audience.

I detest the thought of it... but the fact the GameCube did the exact same thing with Sega prooves it's success. But not like Nintendo needed Sega anyway.

Besides the VMU was still the more popular micro-handheld console over Pocket Pikachu and PocketStation.

Yeah, the shared photos are all kinda have a dark theme, definitely not as colorful as the anime.

Has Nintendo ever need anyone?
Other than 1995 (https://mdshock.com/2022/05/09/a-second-atari-shock-the-decline-of-the-16-bit-console-era/) and Wii U, it feels like they're always standing strong.

Pretty much yeah. I believe the only two reasons Nintendo only allowed Sega to release games on their console is because:
But way I see it, whenever Sega and Nintendo have a partnership, Nintendo is quick to push Sega down the stairs and when everyone asks, Nintendo just says how clumsy Sega is and that they had nothing to do with it.

The partnership they had during the Wii U is an example of this. If they were suppose to be partners, they would of helped one another out wouldn't they? But it seems the only favoured games out of the three that were collaborated were Sonic Lost World which many fans compared to Super Mario games, Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics which was half a Super Mario game and Rise of Lyric which Sega entirely got the blame for and no one blamed Nintendo over quality control. How is that a fair partnership where one partner gets all the praise and the other is treated as a fiasco? Nintendouche if you ask me.

  • Sonic is just as popular as Mario. Why have one major mascot on your console when you can have two of them? Profit off the Sega fans.
  • Sega and Nintendo have been rivals throughout the '90s and Nintendo technically won against Sega. The fans will regarded as in good grace to allow Sega to continue on their consoles over stomping them out. "Look how merciful and fair Nintendo are towards their competitor!"

Nintendo was busy with their own problems,
WiiU was disappointing when it's compared to Wii, 3DS, and their competitor.
They were busy trying to make WiiU relevant but failed over and over again.
Nintendo wasn't getting any praise too during this era.

But the partnership they had with Sega was big news at the time. If they were to have had helped Sega with quality control over their games then we would of had more quality games for the Wii U which would of improved the reputation of the console greatly.
Rise of Lyric was simply not meant for the Wii U due to it's different engine so the game was a rather brunt import and was mostly a rushed job built from the ground up. BigRedButton aren't entirely to blame given Sega bullied them into this production nightmare. And Nintendo was breathing down Sega's neck instead of intervening to help.

That's not how it worked.
They're not the publisher, they have no say in how the game be.
They helped with marketing and gave SEGA their IPs to use for DLCs.
That's it.

QC is another thing.
QC is usually just playing the game for an hour or so, if it's not buggy during that time then it's okay to be released.
Telling the game is bad, let alone intervening, is not part of the job, it could be interpreted as an insult to the publisher.

Isn't a publisher someone who puts the game out there? Nintendo "publish" the games on their console!
Nintendo are also game developers. They could of send someone to assist Sonic Team in the development. You know, as "partners" do when they "collaborate".

Instead it was more like "We will publish your three games as long as  your main installment to Sonic series practically worships Super Mario."

No, publisher is more than that.
They usually do the funding, worldwide licensing, rating approval process, and marketing.
Sometimes they take care of IPs too since maintaining IP is not cheap.
Developer only focus on one thing : making the game.

For example Demon Slayer game.
Aniplex and Cyberconnect could only do so much in Japan market.
They have no resources to release it worldwide.
That's where SEGA step in as publisher for worldwide release.

Unless SEGA asked for their help, they won't do that.
As I said before, Platform holder's suddenly interfering what the publisher do could be interpreted as an insult to the publisher.
This happened quite often with Sony lately with their new censorship policy.

Teppen Jurassic Rampage tells the tale of what happens when Dino Crisis‘ resident mad scientist Edward Kirk gets his hands on the powerful “Third Energy”.
Spoiler: The result is dinosaurs.
Pulled in from beyond time and space, invasive dinosaur species have invaded and disrupted the island’s ecology.
Government agents from all over have converged on the island to duke it out for possession of the new power.

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS) – 6/7/7/7
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice (3DS) – 9/8/9/8
Sonic Mania – 8/8/8/8

Japanese Anniversary version of the game is even bundling it with 3D Crystal merchandise.

I'd rather not talking bad about Boom franchise since it's kind of like adult talking bad about Barney, Paw patrols, or Thomas The Tank Engine.
Those are shows that definitely weren't aimed at me.
Aaron already said Sonic Boom was supposed to be a branch of the franchise aimed at younger kids.
At Younger Kids.
Even in Japan they rename "Sonic Boom" title into "Sonic Toon" to make fans know that it's targeted for kids.

Oda said that the collaborative promotional posters featuring both SNK and Capcom games sold at EVO 2022 in August “reconfirmed” the public’s interest in a potential revival.
“We haven’t really talked in detail with anybody at Capcom about it. It might have come up as a vague comment.
However, we have a lot of experience (in crossovers) with things like Akuma and Geese in Tekken, Terry (Bogard) in Fighting EX Layer, Terry in Smash Bros., and Baiken in Samurai Showdown…"

I maybe an adult but I still think my criticisms are fair against Sonic Boom. Especially when comparing the story writing and comedy of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Like Sonic Boom, AoSTH was more catered for younger audience in comparison to it's SatAM counterpart. Thus it used Looney Tunes=like slapstick humour while still having stories around adventure and heroics, two kinds of genre we rarely see combined in children cartoons back then.

To me, Sonic Boom "tries to be funny". It uses rather spontaneous humour in order to appeal to the audience in entertainment. Such as spontaneous dancing or trying to be the next meme for all the internet kiddies. It just didn't work. It just felt like dumb "shovel humour", just whatever funny to make kids laugh. The kind of shovel humour Teen Titans Go! is notorious for.

AoSTH, it was more fun to watch than funny but still had it's moments of humour that made it worth while. It silliness was not spontaneous and felt natural which complimented the overall comedy of the show.

Because of that, AoSTH became a great kids show for Sonic fans and it was a meme-starter.

Sonic Boom just felt blatant, forced and at times cringe. Even going as far as ripping off memes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86c0EsyTdZ0 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86c0EsyTdZ0)

In all honesty, Dr. Eggman was perhaps the most entertaining character in Sonic Boom, going as far as stealing the show in most episodes. Which is ironic given in comparison to AoSTH Dr. Robotnik and Sega's Dr. Eggman he was a poor excuse for a villain.

You got a point and I agree with most of it.
Not to mention the scope is just in that isolated island,
hard to think that Eggman is a threat of the world.
Still Mike Pollock did his best as Eggman.

What I meant were more on the games though.
Games that are based on kids' show.
It's kinda hard to give reviews for them.
Both my kids love Shattered Crystal and Fire & Ice while I thought the game are just okay.
But they also love these games too ....

... so guess they are really the target.
They still don't like Barney game though.
The game is really weird,
it started playing by itself if we don't touch it for some minutes.

Still waiting the day where they'll play Street Fighter, Virtua Fighter, or Marvel VS against me,
but so far they still have no interest of them.

The N3DS games I can't complain about that much because they were less humor, more gaming so it has it's own entertainment value.

Though will say making the player go through all the effort collecting those badges just for a dance party is just so Boom TV show cringe.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJNgZymZX_M

Why do children TV shows these days think making characters dance is funny? It's not. It's just dancing. And not even good dance moves.

Klay Thompson Is Not Happy About His Three-Point Rating On NBA 2K23: "Doo Doo Since Sega Dreamcast..."

With the first week of September almost in the books now, the wait is almost over for the latest installment of NBA 2K. Each year, in the weeks leading up to release, the game is advertised and teased to build hype and generate some buzz about the project.
The process has been the same this summer as well, with 2K releasing trailers, gameplay footage, and player ratings ahead of the 9th. And while it has mostly been successful in building up anticipation, this year's three-point ratings also brought back some criticism from a powerful NBA voice: Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson.
After finding out what 2K gave him for his three-point rating, Thompson took to Instagram to express his feelings.

True but the reason why I would like to mix-and-match Avatars is so that I could make a more accurate reputation of my character.

For example, here's what my Avatar in Sonic Forces look like:
(https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/875249337832490680/0D87229AA0943A8306AB52FF706E1A87A205A1E8/?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false)

Now on GMod and Source Filmmaler, you can get a mod (http://y2u.be/C3NiRoJnqhk) that allows you to not only recreate your Sonic Forces avatar for GMod or SFM but also allows you to compile any body parts available in the mod pack. And with some ingenuity I know on retexturing and compiling existing models I manage to come up with this:
(https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/bbf62728-d510-43de-bd21-1c5471c0f74c/dekgvkp-2a96209e-9933-4254-a61c-f2da358f8719.png/v1/fill/w_1280,h_720,q_80,strp/sfm_mystic_monkey_by_mysticm_dekgvkp-fullview.jpg?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm46YXBwOjdlMGQxODg5ODIyNjQzNzNhNWYwZDQxNWVhMGQyNmUwIiwiaXNzIjoidXJuOmFwcDo3ZTBkMTg4OTgyMjY0MzczYTVmMGQ0MTVlYTBkMjZlMCIsIm9iaiI6W1t7ImhlaWdodCI6Ijw9NzIwIiwicGF0aCI6IlwvZlwvYmJmNjI3MjgtZDUxMC00M2RlLWJkMjEtMWM1NDcxYzBmNzRjXC9kZWtndmtwLTJhOTYyMDllLTk5MzMtNDI1NC1hNjFjLWYyZGEzNThmODcxOS5wbmciLCJ3aWR0aCI6Ijw9MTI4MCJ9XV0sImF1ZCI6WyJ1cm46c2VydmljZTppbWFnZS5vcGVyYXRpb25zIl19.D1HGYclM0pgW2WoqBrIA9DjooLx5OjL7ykGTPJbot7Y)

The SFM picture is much more accurate to my monkey character and that's because he has the mouth of a rabbit, ears of a female bear and tail of a cat.

If there was such a mod like this for SFM, I would make a Let's Play of sorts around it.

Rayman in Rabbids I get given Rabbids started off as a Rayman spin-off.

Who would guess that Rabbits could respect their elderly.

True but the reason why I would like to mix-and-match Avatars is so that I could make a more accurate reputation of my character.

For example, here's what my Avatar in Sonic Forces look like:
(https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/875249337832490680/0D87229AA0943A8306AB52FF706E1A87A205A1E8/?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false)

Now on GMod and Source Filmmaler, you can get a mod (http://y2u.be/C3NiRoJnqhk) that allows you to not only recreate your Sonic Forces avatar for GMod or SFM but also allows you to compile any body parts available in the mod pack. And with some ingenuity I know on retexturing and compiling existing models I manage to come up with this:
(https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/bbf62728-d510-43de-bd21-1c5471c0f74c/dekgvkp-2a96209e-9933-4254-a61c-f2da358f8719.png/v1/fill/w_1280,h_720,q_80,strp/sfm_mystic_monkey_by_mysticm_dekgvkp-fullview.jpg?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm46YXBwOjdlMGQxODg5ODIyNjQzNzNhNWYwZDQxNWVhMGQyNmUwIiwiaXNzIjoidXJuOmFwcDo3ZTBkMTg4OTgyMjY0MzczYTVmMGQ0MTVlYTBkMjZlMCIsIm9iaiI6W1t7ImhlaWdodCI6Ijw9NzIwIiwicGF0aCI6IlwvZlwvYmJmNjI3MjgtZDUxMC00M2RlLWJkMjEtMWM1NDcxYzBmNzRjXC9kZWtndmtwLTJhOTYyMDllLTk5MzMtNDI1NC1hNjFjLWYyZGEzNThmODcxOS5wbmciLCJ3aWR0aCI6Ijw9MTI4MCJ9XV0sImF1ZCI6WyJ1cm46c2VydmljZTppbWFnZS5vcGVyYXRpb25zIl19.D1HGYclM0pgW2WoqBrIA9DjooLx5OjL7ykGTPJbot7Y)

That looks a lot better.
A lot.
Aiai's ears feel too cartoonic and the lack of the long tail doesn't help too to make it monkey-ish.
Now it really looks like a monkey.

Will it be sold on the Sega Store if funded?

I doubt it since it's not officially approved by SEGA.

What Was The Last Official Sega Dreamcast Ever Released?

Quote
NSega’s last hurrah for first-party Dreamcast games was the Tetris-like Puyo Puyo Fever, which was released in Japan in March of 2004.
However, that wasn’t the de facto final official Dreamcast game ever.
In March of 2007, several days before the PlayStation 3 launched in Europe and Australia, Japanese Dreamcast owners also received the shoot ‘em up Karous.
So while many remember 2002 as the Dreamcast’s last year of even minor market relevancy, the console did live on for quite a few years beyond that.

Yeah. I wish there was such a mod for Forces to allow me to recreate my monkey.
Or better yet, have the animals that were cut from the game return.(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E_B4rlcXsAoZ0ab?format=jpg&name=900x900)

The horns are cool.
Why do they remove them?
May be because it's deemed devil-like appearance (that could change the ESRB rating)?

My guess Sonic Team had the Chinese zodiac animals in mind at first but figured dragons would be too OP of a choice.

Not confirmed yet, but judging from his unclean looks, he's either becoming poor or still rich but just don't want to stay in house anymore, becoming a street fighter literally.
According to the story leak, it's probably the later.
What's the point on going home if Eliza and Mel weren't there, for Ken his family used to be his everything, even the source of his strength.
