Anyone play Gundam Side Story 0079 on the Dreamcast? I remember really loving it back in the day. 

That game was amazing, especially for the time. Main reason I bought a Dreamcast. The PS2 had a great line-up of Gundam games as well. Spent countless hours on Federation vs. Zeon and Encounters in Space. Also, those Battle Assault PS1 games were exceptional 2D fighters. 

 

Haven't been able to get into the new Gundam games as much as the older ones.

I'm sure this is posted in the Steam thread, but for those few of you here who don't pay attention to that thread and have a somewhat gaming capable PC, you can get Steam Link (+ ICEY) for $16.68 shipped within the US. It streams Steam games from your PC to whatever monitor/tv you have the Steam Link attached to within your household. A decent alternative for those of you who can't hook your PC up directly to your TV. Though you'd still really want to hardwire it into your network via an Ethernet cable. Here's a list of compatible controllers should anybody be interested. Since most people here have a PS4, you shouldn't need anything more.

Hopefully the steam link will help me get back on track with playing my steam games many of which are the very japanese niche games I enjoy.

I'm guessing they have some excess stock on Steam Links lying around, and are hoping to clear out some warehouse space.

 

Well, I have no problem taking some of that off their hands. The game has decent reviews, and getting ICEY + a Steam Link for less than $20 is a pretty good deal. And there are a sizable number of TV-style games in my Steam Library now.

I just had my Atelier Firis order from Gamefly cancelled due to the Paypal payment having an expired credit card. I guess streaming from PC is just as good.

Yes, Encounters in Space FTW. I still throw that one into the PS2 every now and then. The same with Battle Assault 2.

Bestbuy.com said Fire Emblem Warriors would be delivered on release date when I preordered it a few weeks ago. They just shipped it today and it's a few states away.

0/10. Will NEVER preorder or buy anything from Best Buy again.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Since it's not a Big Picture native game and has its own launcher, you'll have some slight issues initially figuring things out. It shouldn't be too bad, but I have heard that the game crashes if you try to use Borderless Window with Steam Link, so you'll need to make sure that checkbox isn't ticked in the launcher. Probably also run the DX9 beta build, though I'm not entirely sure how to do that through Steam Link itself.

Same thing happen to me with South Park Fat Butthole.  (My FE:W CE is coming through Prime today) 

Preordered weeks in advance, BB did not ship till monday.

Was supposed to arrive Wednesday, but got delayed in transit and didnt arrive till yesterday. 

 

All my recent packages from BB are being delivered by Fedex now. Maybe that has something to do with it, probably partners for the holidays? (Just an assumption) 

 

But if they pull this with Mario Odyssey next week, im gonna go bust a Cappy on their asses.  :twoguns:
