First Two Panzer Dragoon Games Coming To GameTap

by racketboy Thu Apr 12, 2007 9:49 pm

Panzer Dragoon and PD Zwei are coming to GameTap

Maybe this confirms the port/emulation theory since AFAIK, there was not a PC port of Zwei.

This trend could be interesting, but I'm guess it would be limited to games that Sega has full rights to.
NiGHTS and maybe Shining Force III could be a reality, but not sure about Treasure's games like Guardian Heroes and Radiant Silvergun.

I'll believe it when I actually see footage of Zwei running on it. It's funny as hell. We all said they were just ganna go with PC ports of Saturn games, and what did they pick? Bug. Over half the guessers at Evil Avatar said it would be Bug. Have they ever released a Dreamcast game that didn't also have a PC port? I havent checked lately.

I just check the list...
Here's the Dreamcast games:

GAME TITLE TYPE SYSTEM PUBLISHER
Chu Chu Rocket Puzzle Dreamcast SEGA Corporation
Crazy Taxi™ Racing Dreamcast SEGA Corporation
Hydro Thunder™ Racing Dreamcast Midway Home Entertainment, Inc.
Mr. Driller™ Puzzle Dreamcast Namco Limited
Prince of Persia®: Arabian Nights Action Dreamcast UbiSoft
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Sports Dreamcast Activision Publishing, Inc.
Toy Commander™ Action Dreamcast SEGA Corporation


Most of those don't have PC ports that I'm aware of.
Maybe they are going for the ones that emulate easiest...

Chu Chu, Mr Driller, Hydro Thunder, and Toy Commander are the only ones that aren't on PC. Amazing if it actually is emulating those two 3D games. I'd like to see it.

That's pretty impressive that a website can run 128-bit games, must take a lot of work to make that happen.
