Are They Still Making Games?

Post by Green Ranger » Sun Nov 24, 2002 2:11 pm

Am I to assume that they are still making games for the Dreamcast in Japan? Or is it truly dead in all parts of the world?

Yes, games are stilll being made in Japan, within the recently months Ikaruga came out in Japan. Sometime after Christmas, i believe, King Of Fighters 2001 comes out. Some other games are planned to be released between now and then in Japan also i have been hearing.

http://www.Sega.co.jp has all your Dreamcast of Japan news you'll ever need. Your only hope for new good games is if playmore desides to keep porting NeoGeo titles to Dreamcast. Plus maybe DC RPG mite be good.

HAHA my little cousin ended up getting that Space Channel 5. He hates it even more then me. He can beat Sonic Adventure 2, but he can't even get past the control tower of level 1.

Thats 4 out of 4 people I know who hate this game locally.

After visiting the Magic Box today, it appears that NEC Interchannel has 3 games comming out in January, but they are all listed as adult titles requiring the purchaser to be atleast 18 years of age. I am not sure as to how far these games are going with respect to content or display, but games are still comming. Be sure to mark December 26th on your calendar as that is when King of Fighters 2001 comes out.

As for Space Channel 5...it is a game requiring rhythm. When I first started playing it, it took me quite a while to get the hang of it. However, once I got the rhythm and finally beat the game, it was quite a rewarding experience for me just because you cann't "fake" the skill of having deft rhythm. Plus, it was a lot of fun when Ulala was able to get Michael Jackson to join her dance supporters.

sadly enough sega of japan contiues to support a system that makes it los emore money...sega of japan has great developers...but the worst finacial problems i've seen..... the amount of money wasted on stupid things just baffles me.... i think sega might be dieing soon and being bought... probably split up..i can see nintendo picking up the sonic team.

The sad thing is that all we've got to look forward to is another 2D beat em up. The DC was all about original ideas, oh well at least we got Ikaruga.

btw, has anyone ever actually seen Midway Arcade Hits Vol 2?!?

I'd prefer a decent DC Mame that could emulate Kung Fu Master...

Post by Dbztrunks1020 » Wed Nov 27, 2002 1:26 pm

:D it looks to me like sega is gonna sit back for a while and buy out all the good games then they will release a system that will have the best games and not give the rights to them to the other, aka SONY, Microsoft, nintendo, but until then they will allow the others to use them
