I don't know about you but RetroforceGo! has an odd effect on me. It might be Chad's optimism or Topher's pessimism or possibly even Dyson's pizzarollism but when they talk about things I have a powerful urge to buy stuff I didn't even know existed before I started the podcast. Up till now it hasn't been anything too substantial, a couple of Snes cartridges here (how the heck do unicycles race by them self?) a couple old school rpgs there, ( Guilty?! Just because I picked up a damn locket before I talked to her?!) on the whole RetroforceGo! has pointed me toward a lot of great stuff I'd missed out on growing up as a PC kid.

As any regular listener knows each cast member has a few things they love that tend to be brought up on a regular basis. Dyson loves pizza rolls and the Goodwill, Colette loves chocobos, Chad loves dolphins and abusing the elderly, Stella loves Japanese rhythm games I've never heard of, and Topher loves slurpees and the Dreamcast. So after years of hearing how awesome the Dreamcast is from the gang at Retroforce I finally took the plunge and bought a used DC from my boss. For the reasonable price of $40, he sold me the console and game collection pictured below:



I've sampled most of the games and have to say I'm pretty happy with my purchase. The system seems to have a lot of heart and I can't wait to get a little deeper into some of these games. I'll throw out the generic "I've bought a new system what games should I buy" question, any suggestions are appreciated.

So once again thanks RetroforceGo! for continually broadening my horizons and keeping me endlessly entertained. Here's to you.



And now for something completely different.
