Change The Fan In Your Dreamcast & Make It Quieter

Retrogaming reader, Mozgus knew I was looking into replacing the Dreamcast’s stock fan in order to make it quieter. Here’s what he wrote: Well, all the instructions for my fan mod were from the guy who posted in your thread already. DCMODDER or whoever. He linked you to a tutorial on how to make the […]

Meta-Review: Radilgy (aka Radirgy/Rajirugi) – Dreamcast Shmup

Radiligy is one of the two new Naomi-to-Dreamcast shooter ports to come out in 2006 and it will offer shmup fans a slightly different shooting experience for their Dreamcast. Radiligy does borrow many elements from its sibling, Chaos Field, but does have some unique features and a fresh graphical style. Overall, it does not seem […]

Games That Defined The Dreamcast

The Sega Dreamcast obviously was not a strong commerical success. However, that was not because of a lack of quality games. Sega excelled at having games that were unique, addictive, and just plain fun. (Watch G4’s Coverage of Dreamcast history) The Dreamcast also had some strong support from a number of big publishers such as […]

Dreamcast 2D Fighting Game Library

The Sega Saturn was a phenomenal platform for 2D fighters, but many gamers would not have expected that the Dreamcast would follow in the Saturn’s footsteps so well.

G4’s Icons: History of Dreamcast Episode

As one of G4/Tech TV’s only good shows, Icons does an excellent job of looking back at many of the great people, consoles, and game series that made an impact on the gaming community. I just got done watching the episode of Icons that looks back at the history of the Sega Dreamcast. I thought […]

Dreamcast Shmups Library – 2D Shooters Galore

You would think that it would be hard for the Dreamcast to follow in the 2D footsteps of its sibling, the Sega Saturn and its massive collection of 2D shoot-em-ups. However, the Dreamcast is the perfect complement to the Saturn and is a essentially a requirement in and shmup fanatic’s collection. While it only started […]

Review: Neo4All AES – Play Neo Geo ROMs on Dreamcast

They said it could never be done. The Neo Geo was too intense of a console and most Neo Geo ROMs were just too big for the Sega Dreamcast to handle. Just a year or two ago, skeptics insisted that because of these reasons, it wasn’t even worth the time to think about making a […]

Changing The Music in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 for Dreamcast

If you’ve ever played Marvel vs Capcom 2 on the Dreamcast, you can’t deny that the music is lowsy. It’s incredibly slow and borning and does not fit the game at all. (Read PlanetDreamcast’s review of MvC2 for good commentary) Because of this, there has been a number of people who have created their own […]

Review: Jet Grind Radio – Dreamcast

Jet Grind Radio (known as Jet Set Radio outside of North America) is one of my favorite games of all time, but as I realized my Dreamcast has been getting neglected as of late, I thought I would pull out this unique title and give it another whirl. Since I haven’t played the game in […]

Essential Imports: The Best Import Dreamcast Games

As we all know, Sega gave up fairly early on its last two consoles. In the case of both the Dreamcast and the Saturn, many of the great games came at the end of their life and many didn’t make it to the US. Here’s a rundown on ones that we missed out here in […]

How To Play Imports on a Dreamcast

If you’re looking to play imports on your Dreamcast (see the DC’s best import games), you have a few options. If you want a flawless importing experience and are willing to tinker with your Dreamcast’s guts, a modchip may be your best option. I have not installed a Dreamcast modchip myself, but it is supposedly […]

Meta-Review: Power Stone 2 – Sega Dreamcast

The original Power Stone was one of the most exciting launch titles on the Dreamcast. It built on many of the arena fighting concepts established by Poy Poy on the Playstation. Power Stone was also Capcom’s first successful attempt at bringing their quirky by killer style of fighting to the third dimension. Power Stone 2 […]

Want Wireless Saturn and Dreamcast Controllers?

I love my Sega Saturn and Dreamcast. That fact is easy to pick if you visit my site often. However, I don’t play the systems as much as I should. What keeps me away from these great systems? I am addicted to wireless controllers. I have a Nintendo Gamecube and have fallen in love with […]
