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 cake or something.

One such release is Neo XYX, a new (yes, in 2014) game for the Sega's last console, making this the second Dreamcast release this year. It's also the best.more

Shenmue: from peach tree prototype to Virtua Fighter RPG to final release

At Yu Suzuki's GDC postmortem of Shenmue, he fully detailed the classic Dreamcast game's development, from an early prototype to a Virtua Fighter RPG to its final beloved form.
