Game Sack explores the Sega Dreamcast
There's not much description outside of the title we can say about this episode. It's fun, watch it 50 times right now.
As mentioned in this episode, here is Games that Cause Polarizing Opinions.
Quite rare. Sega of America only made it available via their online store and the initial batch that was available sold out fast. Peter Moore claimed there might be more if there was a demand for it, but it never happened. Because of that, getting a BBA for an NTSC-U Dreamcast can cost you a pretty penny. Japanese ones are just as hard to find since they were also offered similarly online.
No, the Dreamcast was discontinued globally in 2001. The difference was that third party developers kept releasing Dreamcast games for a while until around 2004. Sega's last official Dreamcast game was Puyo Puyo Fever in February 2004. Since then, it's only been homebrew developers. Even then, the number of those has lessened drastically as Sega also discontinued making the GD-ROM discs later on.
I am elated that you guys showed footage from Grandia II, in my opinion that's the best game that no ones ever heard of EVER.
Man, I miss the Dreamcast. Another great episode guys.
While watching this video I looked to my left and what do I see, my Dreamcast O_O with no power cable DX. Nearly all the games they listed I own, even PenPen TriIcelon (some pretty fun and unique racing, too bad only 4 stages :P). I loved Toy Commander and Power Stone 2 was our favorite fighting game on the system, especially after our Marvel vs Capcom 2 broke. I also played the hell out of Sonic Adventure, Jet Set Radio (can't wait for HD release!) and Space Channel 5.
Sega Rally 2. The song is called Estrada Nova.
It was only discontinued outside of Japan.
Awww...I only saw two of the Dreamcast games that I own...I miss my Dreamcast. I have the actual console...but none of the cords!!
Ah, I feel like a boss now. I can say that I own all those games but three. But now I feel really excited to get Typing of the Dead.
Does anyone know the song from 14:30 to 14:40? I can't remember which game it's from and it's driving me crazy X(
The games kept coming so fast I didn't have time to drink my beer. Lol
Man, I missed you guys last week. I understand the reasons for the Bi-weekly posts but I'm so glad to see a new episode. Love your show and love what you do.
I love you guys for looking at the Sega Dreamcast. It is my bread and butter. Man, I still need to get Typing of the Dead. Great job, Joe and Dave. You better not leave ScrewAttack.
Wow online play, crazy peripherals, on disc DLC... the Dreamcast was ahead of its time. lol how fucking rare IS that dat broadband adapter lol, I've never seen one in person...
Great Episode :)
Even though this was the end SEGA console era, they couldn't have found a finer swan song to go out on...
You might be referring to Guilty Gear X. The song is Blue Water Blue Sky.
Btw, what's the song from the beginning (about 2:08) and ending credits? I tried looking up the soundtracks for the first three games you credit at the end but I guess I missed it. :(
I'm holding a late funeral for SEGA. I'm going to play the bagpipes.
Woah! Dave looks really different with the beard. Another great episode as usual guys and I don't think you give yourselves enough credit on the dialog. The bit at the end still had kinda wooden dialog but apart from that it's sounding really fluid and natural.
It is pretty unfortunate what happened to with Sega though. Let's take a moment of silence for the once-giant game maker.
