A brand new Dreamcast game came out this week. SEGA's swansong has proved a fertile grounds in its abandonment. People keep making things for it. Next up is a remaster of Kojima's Snatcher, the game he did after Metal Gear.

The enhanced visuals and remixed soundtrack of the SEGA CD title come courtesy of CollectorVision. It will " take some time to complete," so anyone who dusted off the Dreamcast to play Redux: Dark Matters will have some time to wait.

I appreciate the sentiment. I've always wanted to play Snatcher. That and Blade Runner. This won't help, mind, because I don't have a Dreamcast. But I appreciate the sentiment. My problem, though, is the work in progress Dreamcast shots.

Maybe it's just me, but the "enhanced visuals" look worse. Not only was detail sacrificed, but all the saturation and color balancing seems to have gone a bit overboard. Give me the bright, slightly pixelated CD shots over their counterpart any day.

Review: Neo XYX

The shoot-'em-up genre will never perish, and neither will the Dreamcast. No matter how niche it can get at times, shooters old and new come out of the woodwork in the most unexpected of places, from Steam to legacy consoles. 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. Many details, images, and concepts were shown for the first time ever, which was a total thrill for me as a huge fan of the game and Suzuki's other works. more
