Dreamcast turns 15 in JapanPosted by cube_b3 on Nov 28, 2013 at 5:23pm - 3 Comments
Most of the world today is celebrating thanks giving, however Sega fans should associate this day with Dreamcast as it was launched today in Japan. The Japanese launch of the Dreamcast is indeed a historic date, unfortunately the day had more then a few hiccups most notably NEC was unable to produce enough PowerVR chips and Sega was unable to meet all pre-orders hence when looking back most of us seem to only associate with 9/9/99. That said, we have quite a few exciting things going on for the Japanese 15th Anniversary.
Gagaman over at Dreamcast Junkyard has compiled a list of Top 200 Dreamcast games based on a community poll. I just went through the list and I was happy to see most of the Indie games made it in to the list starting with Feet of Fury at 194 (injustice!) peaking to 36 with Sturmwind. With the exception of Cool Herders, Inhabitants and Maquipai, all other indie games made into the list.
Additionally to celebrate the 15th anniversary we reached out to the highest ranking indie developer on the list, Duranik for an interview. Unfortunately just like Sega encountered some delays with NEC, I've had some problems with time management and will not be able to share the interview with you today but it should be up soon.
Lastly, Hucast's remake of Dux, titled Redux: Dark Matters is scheduled for a release on Tuesday 3rd December 2013. So in addition to Sturmwind we have 2 new games to play this year.

Former SEGA VP has Passed AwayPosted by cube_b3 on Nov 21, 2013 at 9:47pm - 4 Comments
Originally posted at DCS
Former Vice President of Strategic Planning and Corporate Affairs for Sega of America Charles Bellfield has passed away on Friday, November 15th 2013. VentureBeat reports that his brother Edward Bellfield shared the news on Facebook. Since then several other video game websites have shared the news – most comprehensively by Gamasutra. Although the cause of death has not been shared with the press.
Former Sega President Peter Moore described Bellfield as “the quintessential Englishman Abroad” as well as “a great friend, a wonderful personality.”
“Together we would take on Sony, joust with EA, and even battle with our own parent company back in Tokyo,” Moore said. “All with a sense of irreverence and good natured competitive spirit that Charlie and I believed embodied what Sega needed to be about. He was smart and mischievous, with a dry humor and a classic sense of right and wrong. Long after we parted ways at Sega, we were (and are) friends to the end. He was a friend and mentor to my children.
Bellfield and Moore were notably responsible for working on a manifesto in September 2000 that suggested the company would have a more prosperous future as a software developer instead of a hardware manufacturer.
At the time Bellfield was also the most public face of Sega and I remember reading numerous interviews that he gave to the press. The most memorably one was the one he did with Anthony Chau of IGNDC. After Moore cancelled Shenmue 2 for Dreamcast. It was up to Charles Bellfield to justify that decision to the press. In the same interview he spoke of the last batch of Dreamcast and specifically the last Dreamcast which was supposed to be more valuable than gold. I remember this interview because it was later revealed to have been signed by everyone involved with Dreamcast at Sega of America.
Unfortunately it never made it to retailers or maybe it was just a marketing stunt. I would like to think that some passionate Sega employee still has it and maybe one day we will get to see a photo of it.
Officially Bellfield was with Sega from 1998 to 2003, however he stated in the aforementioned IGN interview that he has been involved with Dreamcast since August 1995. According to his LinkedIn profile he was employed by NEC prior to working at Sega. NEC did manufacture the PowerVR chips for Dreamcast and Naomi so perhaps this is how his involvement with Dreamcast precedes his employment at Sega. Post Sega he worked as VP of Marketing at Capcom and CodeMaster. In 2008, he left the video game industry and worked with various companies, at the time of his death he was employed by internet radio company PURE North America where he was working since November 2009.

SCUMM VM: The MoviePosted by Christuserloeser on Nov 16, 2013 at 10:56am - 0 Comments
On the 9th of October 2001, the very first commit was made to a CVS repository and thus the ScummVM project was born...
As I write this post, it is now the 11th of October 2013 and we have over 58000 commits in the ScummVM Git repository... but still based on that initial commit over a decade ago!
Thus on the project's 12th anniversary, I believed ScummVM deserved a present... Thus myself, James Wood$#@! and the ScummVM PR Team present "ScummVM: THE MOVIE"!

So get the popcorn and enjoy!

Shenmue HD coming to PlayStation 4?Posted by Christuserloeser on Nov 16, 2013 at 8:14am - 0 Comments

Sony's Adam Boyes explained that the company is working on trying to get games that have been requested by fans on to Sony platforms.
"We get a ton of requests for Yakuza, a ton of requests for Shenmue." Boyes said. "We have a person that compiles those lists and prioritizes based on how many requests we've gotten. And I think to date there's well over 10,000 mentions across like forum threads and stuff like that. So those are the ones we're focused on."
Boyes also commented on when fans should expect to start to see the result of Sony's work getting ports onto PlayStation platforms: "I would say within the next six months we'll have at least one if not a few announcements to make on that front."
