    Default HAPPY BIRTHDAY DREAMCAST

    Someone pointed out in an earlier post that today is the Dreamcast's 5th birthday.



    I still remember the ads for 9/9/99

    The DC may be dead in America, but games are still being made for the Japanese market... the "Loaded" (PSone) style shooter Baldr Force EXE is coming out in October (it's a port of a PC hentai game with much of the hentai stuff removed) and there are still several dating simulators still on the release schedule. I'm waiting for another 2-D shooter!

    I doubt the DC will ever REALY die for some time... the DC homebrew market is quite active!

    Cheers

    Fish Sandwich

    I played Crazy Taxi, Gunbird 2, and Metropolis Street Racer for the first time in several months last night, and I didn't even know that it was the Dreamcast's b-day.
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    Caught an episode of "The Steve Harvey Show" last night. One of the characters mentioned that he was saving money to buy a DC.

    Yes! The Dreamcast Lives on!

    I actually just played an awesome Homebrew for DC last night called "Megaman - War of the Past". Any megaman fans should NOT miss this one. It's a bare knuckle style game, ya know Final fight and all that beat em up arcade style. But you can play as Rockman, Zero, Protoman, Roll or Duo! and you fight all the megaman baddies. The levels are awesome and the music is awesome remixed versions of old megaman tunes. Really good stuff.

    if interested just do a google search for it. It's public domain, so should be hard to find not is it illegal.

    And I just got my Sonic Adventure japense import in the mail today from Play asia! What timing!

    Don't forget the Playstation and SNES. 9 and 13 years old today! I've been playing DC all day. Brings back a lot of memories. I bought 2 DC's at launch. Dreamcast is an awesome system. hell yeah!

    Happy B-Day DC!!

    This means that the only games I will play today are DC games. I have a pirated version of the pba bowling 2001 prototype I will have to try out to say happy b-day to my dc.

    Agh, same here man. I'd be having a huge dose of SF3ouble Impact right now then.

    Ahg, only having a PS2 is making me go nuts. I needs my video games.

    I don't know about you guys, but I plan on going to dcemulation.com to get myself a homebrew just for today. everybody that has their dc and is posting on this topic should do the same. just to show our boy dc some love and let him know that we haven't forgot about him.

    EDIT:

    go there and get the ninja turtles sga. sga=single game arcade. they now have a 2-player version working on dc. i have no affiliation with this site, so I am not trying to advertise for them. This thing is just awesome though. Show the dc some love today and get her something new. I, for one, will be downloading a couple multiplayer sga's as well as others games.

    I missed out the DC in its heyday. Got one about a year-and-a-half ago in a trade and it quickly became my favorite "modern" system - yeah yeah I know it's "dead" in the U.S. but hardware-wise its still comparable to the PS2 so I say it rates modern console status. It's not even really "dead", it's more like missing in action.

    Anyway I have two DC's now: one to play and one to sleep with under my pillow. Great system. Happy Birthday to the little white box that should....

    Gonna break me out some Soul Calibur (real Soul Calibur, kids) and Sonic Adventure tonight...

    HOLY SHIT! I can't believe I didn't remember this. I was even at a few stores and had to ask the clerks what date it was when I was writing a couple of checks at a few different stores, I guess I just didn't notice.

    I sure as hell can't believe it's already been 5 years ago!!!!!!!!!!! Yep, 9/9/99!!
    I remember we me and my friend both waited til each other got off school, we went to different schools, and I reserved mine at Toys R Us, and he reserved his at FuncoLand. We both got about 3-4 games each, extra controllers, and memory cards. We both picked up Soul Caliber and Sonic Adventure. I remember it was a little bit colder day and we went and celebrated at Taco Bell after we got our systems. That's when Creed was really popular and remember a couple of their songs at the time where being played on every ROCK station around here. WOW, the memories. I am going to call him up after this and see if he remembers.

    Sorry if this post is too long. It's just when I started to just write Happy Birthday to the DC it brought up too many memories. It was even my Senior year in high school as well, so it even brings up more memories there.
    Other than the Gameboy Color, the DC is the only system on launch day I have bought. So it was my first major system I got on launch day.
