Hello! First time on a forum

Post#1 » Wed Jun 24, 2020 9:31 pm

Hey everyone! I’m Dominic. But you can call me Dom. I love video games in general but sega is my most favorite company. I’m getting a Dreamcast on Friday! I can’t wait. Anyone have any suggestions on games I should get? Any accessories?

Welcome dude. Depends what type of stuff you like I definitely say sonic adventure is a must as I love that game. As for accessories, other than a few VMU, if you're planning on jumping online I'd suggest a keyboard and mouse for quake 3 and general chatting. Enjoy your time here!

Welcome! Always great to see new people join the community! More and more games are being brought online all the time. I suggest investing into a DreamPi if you do any online gaming at all. The system has dozens of active online games.

Welcome to DC-Talk. I do not know your gaming preferences but if you have a VMU and want an epic game with mystery, action and adventure, Shenmue (match your region) and Shenmue 2 (PAL version or look for the hard to find English Speech mod). I hate to say this, but if you have a PS4, you might be better off buying the Shenmue 1 & 2 combo game being new in the USA is under $30.00 My son just received it for his graduation last week for $23.50 new from Game Stop.

The rest of my game list:
1. Sonic Adventure.
2. Sonic Adventure 2.
3. Jet Grind Radio.
4. Crazy Taxi 2 (This is a blast to play).
5. Spider-Man.
Note: Online features for DLC and such exists for some of these games.

Online Game List:
1. Phantasy Star Online v2 (aka PSOv2).
2. Maximum Pool.
3. 4x4 Evo.
4. Internet Game Pack (Google Dreamcast-Live for details - free game).
5. Monaco On-Line Racing Simulation (be very careful which you get of this - there is a whole big story on this one at the Dreamcast Junkyard).

1. DC Keyboard (a must for online play).
2. VMUs (notably if you are to play PSOv2).
3. DreamPi (details at Dreamcast-Live).
4. DC Mouse (only if you want to play Quake 3 Arena).

Note: They sell adapters to use a standard PC keyboard and mouse if actual DC hardware is not an option.

Hi Dom and welcome. I am myself new to the forum as well. :)

I'm not going to be really original and re-iterate what has been said so far but great starting place for games would be Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi series. These are both instant fun games.

If you want a fighting game with neat visuals, Soul Calibur is a great candidate. Puzzle game wise I'd recommend classics such as Bubble Bobble 4, Puyo Puyo Fever or Sega Swirl. If you are looking for a more original puzzle game I would recommend Wetrix.

I agree with Bob Dobbs, Shenmue would be better off played on a PS4, if not exclusively for the long loading times. However I understand you just got a Dreamcast and would like to use it. Either way, the game offers a great adventure.
