DtoidEurope's Latest Event Recap: *limited* SEGANARP

Ok I'll be honest, not many people knew about it on time, but it was just a minor one... However, too give everyone a chance to join in for the big one at the end of the summer ( end of august beginning of september depending on a few variables... I just want to let you know that the EURONARP-scene is still very much alive :-)

Based on a last minute whim, Po0ky and I organised a SEGANARP in Teh Lairē. The rules were simple, anything was alowed, as long as it was playable on a SEGA-system :-) Since SEGA hasn't really released any recent consoles, all HDTV's were banned as well :-) Just plain old oldschool fun...

The first joy of RETROGAMING:



As usual Po0ky and I made it to teh Lairē first, after we picked up ReX and ZubZub at the nearby trainstation... We hadn't had time to unload the car yet so they were squeezed in the back of the car, together with 3 CRT-TV's and a whole bunch of crap. The first hour was spent connecting everything up and searching through huge stacks of cables for the right ones... the downside of having about 30 consoles in one place. ReX and ZubZub settled in on the Master System II, while Po0ky was trying to get the Mega Drive working ( the Genesis for the US'ians )... While I gave the dreamcast a testdrive with a round of Le Mans 24 Hours. Even though it has been more then 6 years since I last played the full 24h race in that game with 3 of my friends, I still remembered the track like it was yesterday and won my first race in an instant. After the good workings of the DC were established, we turned our attention to the Genesis, since none of the 2 available ones were displaying an image on the TV's.

A few hours of frantic DC, Saturn and Master System gaming, Viersee, Simon and Viersee's Girlfriend joined us for the remainder of the night. We fired up the dreamcast for a quick set of rounds on powerstone 2, at the same time Viersee and ReX were trying to destroy eachother in X-Men Children of The Atom on Saturn... The dreamcast was switched to Rival Schools 2, Project Justice and Simon, a PSX-veteran of Wipeout finally saw the light as he tried out the Saturn Version of this brilliant game.



So again a few lessons learned, one-type-NARPs are brilliant, since it limits the choices of available games, and thus there are less hiati between games :-)

The next one will be a Nintendo-only-NARP.

so be sure to keep an eye on this blog or join the DtoidEurope group
