Indie dev's angry rant demonstrates the stress after being Kickstarted

Having never heard of Elysian Shadows -- a 2D RPG that was Kickstarted for PC, mobile, Ouya, and even Dreamcast -- I stumbled across the above video of one of the developers, Falco Girgis, seemingly going off. Apparently one of the te...

Happy 16th birthday, Sega Dreamcast

Twenty years ago on this day, Sony released the original PlayStation (at least in North America, anyway, because never you mind anything that happens in other parts of the world). Also celebrating a birthday today (its 16th) is the Sega Dre...

The Shenmue III reveal triggered a huge spike in Dreamcast sales

Six months ago, if you wanted to buy a second hand copy of Shenmue or Shenmue II on eBay you could do so for in some cases as little as $15. The games seemingly kept low resale value online due to the second game ending on a pretty nasty cl...

Grandia II HD Edition renamed, probably because it doesn't look very HD

Grandia II may be pretty good, but it is not pretty. Not even the recently-announced "HD Edition," which (based on these screenshots) looks hardly any better than did the original Dreamcast version. Perhaps cognizant of this, GungHo has "ch...

This Sega Dreamcast theme for 3DS is legit

The first time I booted up my Dreamcast with The House of the Dead 2, I believe it was, I thought the machine was broken. I'd ordered it along with a bundle of used games and controllers on eBay, so that was a real possibility. But, no, th...

Neo XYX review

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.   read
