Aussie Dreamcast owner since the beginning :D

Post#1 » Fri Jan 06, 2017 11:04 pm

Hey hey!

My name is Robbie, and I joined the forums last year some time, but never got around to post until now!

I'm an almost 34 year old SEGA kid through and through. Grew up with SEGA from the Master System onwards (including the Mega CD/32X and Saturn), and I've been a Dreamcast gamer since launch here in Australia. Sold my original PAL Dreamcast many years ago, but quickly purchased another couple of region-free units online a short time after. My Saturn collection is my largest so far, but the last year or so, I've been building my DC collection back up quite nicely.

Most recent purchases for the DC have been JPN Outtrigger + Mouse Combo, US San Francisco Rush 2049 (hands-down my favourite racing game for the system) and a lot of 11 PAL games that includes Trickstyle, Crazy Taxi, MDK2, RE: Code Veronica and more.

If I had to boil down a top 10 for the Dreamcast, it would probably look something like this:

Tokyo Xtreme Racer 2
Shadow Man
Sonic Adventure
Soul Calibur
Dead or Alive 2
San Francisco Rush 2049
Metropolis Street Racer
EDIT: Outtrigger (recent acquisition and HOLY CRAP I'M IN LOVE)
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2
Grandia II

The Saturn and the Dreamcast are my favourite consoles of all time. Just below those two are the the Mega Drive and OG Xbox.

I've recently started a Retro, predominantly SEGA focused YouTube channel, though I'm still trying to figure out the best approach to take with my videos moving forward...

Anyways, thanks for allowing me to become a member here, I hope to get to know you all better from here on out!

Cheers!

Yep, I know you! Cheers! And yeah, I'm going to look into getting my unit online. It's awesome such a thing is possible in this day and age. I never got to try online play back in the day, so I'm looking forward to FINALLY giving it a go, haha!

It is a small world for sure! Yeah, that was when VGMix was still alive and kicking. And thanks, they're really old for me know, and hard to listen too, ha!

The curse of being an artist. :lol: Our old stuff we were once so proud of now seems horrible.
