Look, we all liked the Dreamcast. But it's time to get over that sh*t. I have one, in my closet, stacked with all those old games that I loved. The reality is that most of those great games have survived since the death of Sega's last console. I play ChuChu Rocket! on my phone, and there's that nifty DC collection that was recently released on Xbox 360. It's time to move on!

Someone in Japan hasn't moved on. They've created this ugly portable that has Dreamcast innards. It may also have the same buttons and logo sticker, but it's not official. No, Sega would never green light anything this chunky and knoby. 

If you simply can't get over the past, Andriasang says that Pachimon TV will begin selling these things in June. They're asking 38,000 yen (about $470) for one of these monsters. I'd say wait and save that money for Sony's NGP or PS Vitamin Water or whatever it's called.

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
