    So some of you may know my love of all things Sega. I am a firm supporter of all the indie devs on the system and this year looks to be another bright one. After being kicked over and over again as one of the first backers of the game being released on the Dreamcast only to see the PC, OSX, Steam, 360, XB1, PS3, PS4 and Wii U get this game after all being announced well after. The first announced system has finally seen the light of day. I was getting worried the Vita port would have come before the DC variant. We have seen some truly great games like Gunlord, Ghost Blade, Sturmwind and my personal favorite DUX 1.5 (as well as DUX & ReDUX) games to the "dead" system. Teams like HuCast, Senile and NG Dev have kept the system very much alive. Only one year since 2001 when the system was cancelled by Sega we didn't get one new indie game, though we did see two unreleased retail games that year. One being the fabled Giest Force which I helped release a vastly improved image of back then. We finally have something totally different a RPG. And boy did Watermelon come through!! The extras like the directors cut and mini games have renewed my faith in the team and I eagerly await seeing Saber Riders now.

    I wish the best console i've ever owned was still alive and kicking...

    I knew I knew you from somewhere else atreyu, I was the one who made the PC to DC lens conversion over at Dreamcast.es, elotrolado and some other forums... I also remember playing on some forum's PSO servers... Good times

    Yes I stepped away from the DC scene once ReviveDC disbanded. A lot of bad stuff in the scene. Seemed toxic at the time so I focused on the PS1/2/3 & PSP/PSTV scene now. I'm doing a review of the game tonight. Looks amazing running via xRGB Mini upscaled to 720p using a scanliner in 16:9 anamorphic display.



    Yes I have the PS3 version but have been holding off for the DC version. Its the directors cut with tons of extras and mini games.
