how is every single dreamcast game so goddamn expensive! i thought i'd be able to get sonic adventure and hydro thunder right off the bat but they're 50 bucks each! jet grind radio is 75!! i get bangai-o costing a hundred but d2 and illbleed? what a shitload of gently caress!

i don't actually mind taking longer to build up a library because i don't spend much time on games anyway but boy howdy i had no idea that of all the dreamcast games i wanted to play exactly one of them (sega gt) would be under $50 on ebay

I bought a Dreamcast a few years ago and all the local retro shops near me had like 3 copies of NFL 2K and nothing else, which was a shame.

I had some trouble getting some games to run but I had some luck putting the console upside down, which felt deeply perverse.

if you have money to blow, the way to go is add the SD card slot to the dreamcast and play games through the system right off the card, skip the disc altogether

i had a dreamcast that i would have wrestlers sign. it started in 2005 when kurt angle was doing an autograph signing near me and i just kinda kept up with it. eventually more wrestlers had signed it, diamond dallas page, glacier, molly holly, virgil signed it without me rly asking him to but i didnt want to be rude. i wanted hardcore holly to sign it but he said it was rly pathetic for a grown rear end man to lug his video games outdoors. the biggest name i had sign it was mick foley who drew a little socko under the disc tray. i had a chance to get it signed by chris benoit but chickened out while i was in line and saw how yoked he was irl. it wound up being stolen in 2009 but i occasionally browse ebay to see if it ever pops up again.
