Doesn't the Dreamcast output in NTSC mode when 60hz is selected anyway? My TV overscans the image as it does when running imports, yet on my Gamecube it'll run 60hz no problem as that's PAL60

So if the game supports 60hz, then it should run fine - you'll just need a boot disc

Four swords adventure comes with anohter game as well, but i think tetra's trackers was canned becasue the ability to read the player's name out loud would only work in japanese (as it's a syllabic language).

I love FATA. They have an intense live show. I've seen them twice. Unfortunately there are hardly ever any good bands playing over here in Northern Ireland.

It's just a compact PC that can't be upgraded (there's even a keyboard/mouse)

Do you have to transfer games onto the harddrive? Thus requiring another PC anyway? or is there an external drive for this or something?

The DISCover allows you to play PC games, but no need to install etc first - you can just put the games in and play

It released the Game Gear, and pulled out of the handheld marker after it's "success" (well apart from the nomad)

That story is blatently fake!
