I thought you had a Dreamcast, ExedExes? Isn't DC "technically" the same console generation as PS2?

You serious? I thought DC was bundled in with PS1 and the rest of them...

*looks*

DOH!

Ack! By-jove! It is a 6th gen.

Ok.... semi - retro but I still don't have what all the cool kids play these days. Just a DC collector at heart -- waiting for my latest purchase to arrive (Confidential Mission)! That's my TR feature for this month :wink:

PC?! Works out well...

Then, purchase our strategy guide -- you won't be able to get through the game without it! Finally, as a special bonus, please consider our optional cleaning kit and disc rewinder. Game$top 4 Life"

no don't worry -- when it says GS as publisher, I'm pretty sure that just means they didn't know the publisher at the time the game was added to their database.

but strangely, I can't really find proof elsewhere that a PC version exists. Maybe it was canceled?

Might have to ditch this one guys, I only have the GC release and GC games look like smeared poop on my HDTV through AV, still waiting to get a Wii for cheaper component someday.

That said I am a huge fan of the game and there needs to be more stuff like this, like that old XBLA 3D ball game... I forget the name, anyone ever play it? It was straight up just like Super Monkey Ball and a lot of fun.

I'm blanking on the name, but someone ported it to Dreamcast too.

I only have 2 on the GC. Does that count for together retro?
