Makes me want to add this game to my Dreamcast collection!
i honestly don’t know anything about it haha. apparently it’s a crossover RPG or something.
i’ve just been downloading dreamcast games trying to see if they have any bonus content. stuff that gets hidden on the discs intended to be found by sticking the disc into your computer. (this one did and i threw a page up for it on TCRF. i’m sorta active there.)
tho i found those particular pics in the game files. i don’t even know if they’re used or not. i just thought they looked kinda cool or whatevs.
Found this old news article from the Chicago Tribune touting the Dreamcast’s internet capabilities. It was posted October 11, 1999. Thought it was kinda interesting seeing someone talk about this from an “outsider’s” perspective, from a time when the internet wasn’t completely ubiquitous yet. (Also a time when people still capitalized the word Internet.)
Sega of America Inc. knows the gaming audience wants entertainment that is hip and fun, not practical or mind-expanding, so the company isn’t touting Dreamcast’s Internet features.
If I’m right, and Dreamcast proves popular for on-line gaming, e-mail and Web viewing, you can be sure Sega’s competitors won’t be left behind. The Sony PlayStation II and a new Nintendo system code-named Dolphin, both due next year, would certainly offer some way of getting on-line.
Indeed, by 2001 or 2002, we may have a hard time remembering when video game systems didn’t connect to the Net.
Dreamcast fansite abandoned before the thing was even released. [archived version]
The “Most antisipated DC Game?” poll at the top mentions Resident Evil IV and Panzer Dragoon, which of course were never released on the DC. The news page mentions Turok 2 coming to DC but that never happened either.
Also there’s a 2MB preview video for Sonic Adventure hosted on there, which is pretty huge considering the 11MB limit Geocities had at the time.
And also notice for their URL they went for the “Dreamworld” suburb of the Area51 neighborhood. Nice touch.
