HALF LIFE FOR DC / BLACK & WHITE FOR DC / TAKE THE BULLE

Post by DreamcastUK » Mon Mar 10, 2003 3:15 am

hi there right as the title says....

Half life is now out on Dreamcast which you can buy from ebay .... so will BLACK & WHITE be getting finished and how about take the bullet.....

There was so many games that was left unfinished i can name sooooooo many if you walk into the arcades most of the new games in there were due on dreamcast....

remember SAVAGE QUEST????? a game where you had to sit into the arcade machine had a joysitck and the whole thing rumbled when you attacked or was to eat something...

I know my stuff about the dreamcast and sega and i have been fans of them for years........ i have the dreamcat pod used in game shops....... dreamcast printer / dreameye / dreamcast bba / the surf and play unit / dreamcast zip drive phototype... all the rare games even the DVD one.....just a big fan so i am willing to help if anyone knows if there is source codes out there for unfinished games..... :)

regards

Wow. That's all I can say, really. Just wow.

Black & White for dreamcast? Uhh, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't make money off of that. Take the bullet? What's that?

Yup, so many games left unfinished. It's hard to have faith in a console that the manufacturer (sega) gives up on, isn't it?

The DVD game for dreamcast? What game is that? That would be spectacular - if it could be read by the dreamcast. From what I understand, the GD-ROM can't handle DVDs.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I think he is referring to the Dreamcast DVD add-on that was never released. And if that is the case, where did you get it? can I get one?

If that is not what you are referring to, then just because a game is in a DVD case does not make it a DVD.

And BTW, the Half Life being sold on eBay is a burned copy, not an original.

There WERE genuine GD-ROMs of Propellor Arena and HalfLife for sale on eBay a while back - that guy from oldergames bought them both and then about a week later our mods had a nightmare with all the warez topics springing up.

I highly doubt there is a copy of Black & White for DC knockign around as as best I remember it had just been delayed before it was pulled - both Half Life and Propeller Arena were actually totally finished, just never released due to publishing reasons (Valve: not enough money in it and Sega: a wee bit too political at the time)

Id say its likely any that are NOW on sale are CDRs though :|

Funny, I 've been reading the forums since January again and I have not seen such a topic, with the exception of one topic of Half Life but that's it. There was only one of each being sold?

I think this guy's lying... it's be nice to believe but doesn't seem true (many try to pull something like this). Take pics and post em on here (and u better not use pics taken off assembler or other places ont he net.. we've seen those) and you got our respect. If u cant prove having rare stuff liek that then dont claim too please.

Uhh.. no... OlderGames was the one selling ONE GD-ROM, not BUYING two of them. He was selling Propellor Arena (you might have misunderstood it for both because the picture was a picture of Half-Life, Propellor Arena, and a GD-ROM boot disc). The auction was then pulled, and OlderGames said on Consolevision that he was going to arrange a sale with someone else, off of eBay. He also mentioned that it was very likely that Propellor Arena was going to be ripped by the guy he was selling it to.
It's thinking...

I have seen copies of Half-Life all over Yahoo. There all bootleg though.

Is this going to be a legit release or bootlegs?
