New member here, but certainly not new to the Dreamcast. My first DC model was purchased for my birthday in June of 1999....a few months before the USA release. I've been there through the Utopia loader, non-self boot games, then eventually self boot games, homebrew, emulators...well the whole nine yards. I did purchase many retail games though, so I was not just some dirty pirate
My relationship with the DC ended around 2002-2003, but I never forgot how much fun this console was. I recently picked up another console in order to revisit some games.
I really love this console. So much potential. Just playing it now 20 years after its release and the games still hold up and are just a lot of fun. Glad to be back!
