20 years... I feel old :D
I remember back in the days I only knew one or two guys in school who had the Dreamcast. Never had my hands on it before 2001. I really hated the Playstation or N64 3D rendering and when I first saw Sonic Adventure and Shenmue I was blown away :shock:

Me and my brothers saved money during months in order to buy one of the BigBen pack with 3 or 5 games at Virgin Megastore. Unfortunately, once we got the funds (in June 2002) it was to late and we could only find a used one with Soulcalibur, Shenmue, 2 controllers, 2 VMU, a keyboard and a mouse. I invited a good friend in order to test the beast and he stayed the whole weekend. He was so amazed by the graphics of Soulcalibur he nearly sold his PS2 :lol: (had Pro Evolution Soccer been released on the DC maybe he would have done it).

Happy birthday to the blue swirl Dreamcast, the one and only ! 8-)

Edit: Who's in for a little online birthday gaming tonight ?

I remember carrying nearly £300 around school all day, praying I wouldn't get mugged! Ran out the doors straight to Electronics Boutique (RIP) to collect my preorder along with Sonic Adventure.

How this was 20 years ago, I have no idea. I'm still 16, right?

My first EU/UK import for the Dreamcast (which was something like seven years ago) was Project Justice (Rival Schools 2) due to the immense price for an American copy. Now both variants are *even more expensive!*

The next one I imported was Shenmue II... to continue the adventure from Shenmue I to the next just as G... I mean, just as Yu Suzuki intended. :-D

Finally and most recently, I imported Planet Ring which I purchased online this year if I recall correctly. Why? To play online with our dear SEGA Dreamcast, naturally!
  1. New Dreamcast game in development: Simon and the Aquatic Mystery (pre-alpha)
  2. New utility: DV Icy, the Dreamcast VMU Icon Viewer and Converter (0.9)
  3. Support Nz17 Productions on Patreon to help finance new software for the Dreamcast!
