Dreamcast

This is what I call "Playing Catch Up." I haven't made a post since October, but still I'm making videos. Due to the holidays, the release of the Wii U, and general laziness, I haven't made my usual rounds. So expect a few d...
Since we last covered Pier Solar HD's Kickstarter, developer WaterMelon has reached all five of its stretch goals for the campaign. As such, there will be a Japanese translation, extras for the Dreamcast version of the game, ...
2010's homebrew Sega Genesis RPG Pier Solar was one of those projects that was fun to watch from the sidelines, but I never got to actually play it myself. That's what was great about development team WaterMelon turning to Ki...
The Dreamcast may have been discontinued back in 2001 here in North America, but Sega's venerable machine continued to truck on for several years thereafter in Japan. While independent games still continue to be release...
11 seconds! That's how long this short, sweet trailer for Crazy Taxi will take to watch. Oddly enough, in that amount of time, we're told much of what we need to know about this release. The iOS version of the classic Dreamc...
[Read on for a description of every Resident Evil game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2012.] Why Resident Evil? This year, Capcom is pushing out three entirely new Resident Evil games -- it's also t...
Hey. It's late on a Tuesday night. We're about to enter the mid-week hump. It's time for some f*ckin' kung fu action up in here, am I right? Here is a very simple yet effective video from José Cardona. He though to hi...
[Header by Ashley Davis] Every other videogame franchise seems to be celebrating a major anniversary lately. However, there's one little series that seems to have slipped everyone's mind. Everyone except Dtoider TheManchild, ...
Alongside the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, Vita, and PC versions of Jet Set Radio due out later this summer, the beloved Dreamcast game will also be making an appearance on Android, iPhone, and iPad. I don't know th...
Happy Independence Day, dear readers! I am, of course, referring to AMC's annual marathon of the film Independence Day, starring Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith. Those two make a better couple than Bobby and Jamie Deen! (I assu...
It's been over a decade since Sega shut off the Dreamcast's life support and cut the system's life cycle tragically short, and yet, new games still somehow manage to find their way to the system. Thanks in large part to small...
Even though we were properly excited for an HD update to Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio, we were a bit worried about the soundtrack, which Sega said would be difficult to keep intact for licensing reasons.  Today we've ...
Jet Set Radio is yet another Dreamcast game that's destined to appear on digital distribution platforms, and at this point, I have to wonder how much further Sega is willing to go. In a recent interview with Gamereactor, the ...
It's been a while since we've had a quote from Michael "Stink Pouch" Pachter to infuriate the masses, so here's one of him being cynical towards a Nintendo product again. In fact, he thinks Nintendo is going to "Dreamcast" it...
YES! Are you set to jet?  I knew you still loved me, Sega.
Back when the creator of Seaman dropped a hint that the game might make it to 3DS, I wasn't sure what to think. It's easy to get your hopes up these days. As reported by Nikkei (via andriasang), Nintendo is looking to bring b...
Yu Suzuki, creator of the beloved Shenmue series, believes that his studio could finagle the rights away from SEGA. If possible, he could finally make the Shenmue III that fans have ached for over the years. "Shenmue's licens...
Between the recent digitally distributed re-release of Sonic CD on consoles, and the still-funny dumb running Sonic Tumblr, I'm in the mood to throw our hedgehog friend some love. Today, many of the well-remembered Sonic game...
Despite the fact that the Dreamcast and Neo Geo are essentially dead, owners of the classic consoles can look forward to a brand new title -- GunLord. It's a Euro-style platformer reminiscent of classics like Turrican. It fo...
Sega has the dates for two long-awaited digital re-releases, Space Channel 5: Part 2 and Sega Bass Fishing. For PlayStation Network, it's October 4th; the Xbox Live Arcade versions are coming a day later. Since these games ar...
Twelve years ago today, the Sega Dreamcast was released here the States. That one just slipped right by us! Sure, it's not the Dreamcast's true birthday -- that would be November 27 -- but at least we should have cut up some ...
[Every Friday, Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!] With yesterday being Sonic the Hedgehog's twentieth anniversary, it's been a bit of a SEGA-themed week for us at Destructoid To...
To celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog's 20th anniversary, I have undertaken the E.G.G.M.A.N challenge, and it's driven me into a state of almost comfortable insanity. In order to take the challenge, you play the above video, which...
Look, we all liked the Dreamcast. But it's time to get over that sh*t. I have one, in my closet, stacked with all those old games that I loved. The reality is that most of those great games have survived since the death of Se...
Today March 15th at 4PM PST, Sega will be stopping by the Destructoid live studio to play some Dreamcast classics and perhaps something a bit more modern. Join us today on Justin.tv to find out what mischief we are up to and ...
SEGA is so hilarious, but I got the last laugh.  Jim Sterling wins this round. SHUT UP I WON IT!
The recent Dreamcast Collection compilation disc for Xbox 360 featured Sega Bass Fishing, Sonic Adventure DX, Space Channel 5: Part 2, and Crazy Taxi. These games are now up on Steam, and can be purchased individually at $8.9...
The Sega Dreamcast Collection gets released this week for PC and Xbox 360, and includes old games you might have played. Games like Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure, Space Channel 5 Part 2 and Sega Bass Fishing. In actual widescr...
Mention Ikaruga, and watch as the ensuing comments sound like the giddy ramblings of pre-teen schoolgirls. If that describes you, then take a look at this model kit by Kotobukiya. Rather than simply giving it a good stare, th...
[Over in the CBlogs, Wry Guy shared his thoughts on video game collecting, what he enjoys about it, and how he believes the advent of digital downloads has changed the collecting scene. -- JRo] Videogames are becoming more an...
I see plenty of ass-y, sun-yellowed Dreamcasts on used game store shelves these days, so it's refreshing to see such a cool custom job. This particular system's story starts out in a similar way. A woman purchased t...
Today's episode of Destructoid is a special one. I say that every episode, but today I really mean it. Why, you ask? Because it's Friday, of course! But also because Max chose to wear his zebra print tie today and that can...
Following last year's rumors and subsequent confirmation, SEGA has officially announced The Dreamcast Collection for Xbox 360 and PC. It's due to launch in North America on February 22, with a European release comin...
I have all of those Sega collections. Have 'em and love 'em. There's some serious overlap in my game library, but I'm a sucker for a cheap disc that contains all of the old games I used to l enjoy so much. But I think I'm fin...
NG:DEV.TEAM is a German developer that is just putting the finishing touches on their newest game, a Dreamcast game. Coming out on December 21st is Fast Striker 1.5, which comes in both a regular and limited edition. No, r...
GameStop has listed a curious new title known only as the Dreamcast Collection. Priced at $29.99, no other details are yet to be revealed, but I'd advise against getting too excited yet.  The most likely speculation is t...
Today is September 9, and if you don't know how that relates to the Dreamcast, I'm sorry. You're missing out. News on the iDevice front is that the oft-forgotten Chu Chu Rocket will be making its debut sometime this October, ...
Redspotgames only sells a few thousand copies of their Dreamcast game releases, but at least someone is keeping the...dream alive. The good guys at Joystiq caught up with Redspotgames at gamescom and heard that they are looki...
A portable Dreamcast is already the stuff that dreams (see what I did there?) are made of, but adding in a VMU unit is liking icing on this little cupcake of a game system. No, it's not just a VMU slot, though it does includ...
Seaman is one of those cult classics that has never seen a rerelease despite how many people it would make happy. Nintendo's 3DS arguably provides a perfect environment in which such an odd game could thrive, and creator Yoot...
