They still release new Dreamcast games in Japan. Might want to import some of the shooters, like Ikaruga, Border Down, Chaos Field, Trizeal, Psyvariar 2, Zero Gunner 2, with Bangai-O, Mars Matrix, Giga Wing 2, Cannon Spike, and Gunbird 2 being released here... Also, it has some excellent RPG's, like Skies of Arcadia, Grandia II, and Shenmue. Some good fighting games would include Project Justice, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike, Power Stone 1+2... Jet Grind Radio is good, too.

Buy anything Capcom made for the Dreamcast, they're the one 3rd party developer that put absolutely everything they had into it.

Interesting. Does EB sell this?

I cant wait to get the Dreamcast. I'm more excited about playing Dreamcast games than I am 360 for some reason. Any more suggestions about what games I should get?

EB used to sell it i'm pretty sure back when the Dreamcast was in its prime. now your best bet is ebay. here is what you want: http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem

you probably won't find it much cheaper than that.

Soul Calibur, Skies of Arcadia, Crazy Taxi, Tokyo Xtreme Racer are a few more you can look into. the nice thing about the Dreamcast is that, save for a few classics, most of the games are dirt cheap.

You can just download and burn a boot disc.

I'd also pick up a Dreamcast VGA box, the 3rd party ones work just fine. Forgot to mention Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves, Guilty Gear X, Gundam Side Story 0079, Last Blade 2, Record of Lodoss War, Sonic Adventure 2, Starlancer, Virtual On, and probably some more.

the Utopia disc which you can burn is illegal. it also has problems with certain import discs. and yeah Starlancer is a good game too.

I don't think Sega has cared for a good long while about the Utopia boot disc.

StarLancer is one of those games that was better on the console than on the PC for some reason.

I think you can play imports with this too, althought I am not familiar with it. MAybe someone else is.

i never played it on the PC. the DC-X disc used to be sold by EB but as you can see it's a more expensive option. Cheats 'n Codes Vol. 1 is the cheapest i've seen and it works great.

How does the Cheats 'n Codes Vol. 1 disk work to play imports? I'm curious as I would like to start getting imports as well. thanks for the help.

Its too bad Starlancer used the Windows CE libraries, the graphics suffered a ton because of it. Great game anyway though, and theres a sequel on PC called Freelancer.

haha, those were like THE games i went out of my way to pre-order back in the day, mainly because they were the games i wanted to play the most, maybe i was ahead of my time?


Unfortunately back in those times I just did a lot of renting. And since FF3 could be used for some who-knows-how-many-hundreds of hours of gameplay, the others weren't necessary to have at the time.

Darn, the one day I sleep in, and I miss the return of the Dreamcasts. I ordered Jet Grind Radio, Shenmue, and a VMU on Thursday and got them Monday. It's funny, I did the free shipping, and it was sent 3 day UPS and I didn't get charged extra. Sadly I have to return Jet Grind Radio though, it's deffective, but Shenmue did come complete.

Damn... I would have definately snagged Starlancer. I have it and Freelancer on PC, but I've always wanted to have it on DC. Of course I prefer games like that using a Thrustmaster joystick (I grew up on Wing Commander and was a Janes/EA flight sim freak), I've wanted to try it on the DC. How much was it?

all you do is put the disc in and then there's a button or something on the screen that says 'start game' or something like that. you hit that and then it'll tell you to put in your game disc. that's all there is to it.

Is this considered a good deal?

I bought Paper Mario complete with the original Nintendo strategy guide for less than $20 shipped on ebay about 18 months ago.

Of course I haven't played it at all :-)
