I get ridiculed by all my mates about my DC...

One has a DC, but has given up on it now he has GCN, but I have talked one into buying one simply cos of the homebrew/emu scene :) He says he just needs to save the money.

I still dont belevie their is an aussie place that can be described as a "dreamcast hang out"...

Woah, Zickfun, I too am from Australia, and like, I am the only one in my school who has one, but a lot of my friends who own PS2s and Xboxs are not Anti Sega, infact most of the time they come round they enjoy a bit of Powerstone 2, Quake 3, Soulcalibour or DOA2......

Most of them just never knew about it when it was out

Yeah, my good friends realise the power of the DC... it beats PS2 for multiplayer so easily - 4 control ports to 2 :lol: They still pay me out about my Sega obsession but.

It is the uneducated who are missing out

Their isn't that many people at my school with a DC. Most people can't relize that they are so good. But when it comes to parties, nothing beats 4 player DC action

I think TTP EB still has one copy, if you really want it get your EB to ring other EB's and get it sent to your EB.

I'm EB outed :|
