I just got a Dreamcast. What are the best games to get for this thing? Any multiplats that perform better on it or anything?

Elemental Gimmick Gear is a system exclusive.

It's a Action/Adventure (zelda like)
in that you collect powerups to continue traveling around the world.

The boss fights kinda suck as they're in 3D while the rest of the gameplay is top down 2D, but I love the game anyway.

Nobody else seems to like it as I'm the only person I've ever seen post it on 4chan.

>> No.1820173

I know it has the definitive versions of Rush 2049 and Dead or Alive 2 (also Chu Chu Rocket), but I can't think of any others at the top of my head.

I swear I have an image showing the difference between all versions but I can't find it, if someone here have it please post. Oh yeah DC version also has Mercenaries unlocked from the start.

>> No.1820638

For the RE3s: The PSX versions aren't ideal because of how gross the system's semi-broken 3D rendering is.
The GCN version is essentially a direct port of the original with no batshit 3D glitching.
The Dreamcast version unlocks the postgame mode and costume shop at the start as well as adding costumes.
PC port is just the original at highest res, but if I remember, it's tricky to run.

You'll have to look up RE2 on your own since it's so odd. Know that there is an updated PSX version that the PC and GCN ports are based on. The Dreamcast is perhaps the definitive port of that particular version, with other stuff added. The N64 version has loads of its own exclusive features including a lot of new files as well as a randomized-item playthrough option.

RE2 had a weird history.

>> No.1820691

In short, Dreamcast and PC versions of both RE2 and 3 are the best versions. Best graphics, smoother gameplay (no loading times between camera angles like on PS1), they also have the most bonuses (DC&PC versions have the Nightmare difficulty mode for RE2 which is the greatest thing ever).
The PC versions also have the advantage to you can skip doors.

But yes, GC versions are great.

>> No.1820775

>which is the greatest thing ever

>> No.1820796

Even if you know RE2 by heart, Nightmare difficulty will put you on the edge as if you were playing the game for the first time again.
Here is an example
>zombies take a random amount of bullets to die, which can range from 1 to 32 ; which can lead to fucking awesome situations
>lickers can perform a quick 2 hit combos (jump+small hit when they land) to take 100% of your HP

Tokyo Extreme Racer, almost as good as GT. Cars are awesome, the racing is like an rpg; while driving the city a challenger will appear and you race for pinks. You eventually create a racing team and logo and even more challengers become available. I love Japanese sport cars past and present (not civics, integras, or preludes; any front wheel drive shit).

Also the dream cast has some of the best sports games. Sega tennis 2k2 is the best tennis games I have played.

>> No.1821529

Star Wars Episode One Racer.
Crazy Taxi (both)
Tokyo Extreem Racing.
Anything that made it to the N64 also, it looks so much better on DC.

The Dreamcast was a damn fine console, my second favorite (5200 #1 I like the under dog). There are not that many bad games.

Sega got it so right, but too late.

I recommend a VGA cable as well. The DC runs Windows CE, at 640X480 Looks great on a monitor. Get an HDMI converter for your big arse TV's. This is the oldest console I will hook up to my main TV, my pre-crash 8 bit is on a different TV.

Don't let anyone tell you this system is shit, as they just released a brand new game for the system in Japan, this year.

Happy Gaming.

Daytona, both Crazy Taxis, Le Mans, F355 Challenge. Since they're mainly ports of arcade games that used steering wheels, it should work pretty well. I recommend a Concept 4 wheel over some others.

The official stick (Green stick & buttons w/ DC logo) works well for fighting games, shmups, arcade collections, and certain other games that map identical controls to both the analog stick and d-pad. (Ms. Pac-Man Maze Madness and a few others I've forgotten)
Some have modded their official sticks to improve it further, like adding microswitches to the buttons to match the ones on the stick itself, which I'm looking into as well.

Bothers me that this title is always overlooked when people mention DC games/exclusives when a lot of arguably poorly aged games get mentioned all the time.

PJ has a large diverse cast of characters, timeless stylised graphics, great music, great single player "story" mode, humour, board game/character creator feature and of course solid gameplay.

I'd suck a mans dick for a good sequel.

Does Shenmue works on a burned CD? Isn't there issues cause you know, it's a multi-CD games and everything? If it does work I'm gonna take back that bad motherfucker that has been sleeping in my sheelves for so long

I don't know I just figured that there would be some issues because you know my friends told me this and... ok I'll try...

Just do some google research on burning that game. If there is major problems, there should be info on it.

Nah. It´s like Resident Evil 2 - you just burn both disks and use them exactly as you would use the original two disks.

The only games that give trouble are those that are bigger than a CD and require overburning, which is not compatible with all burners and I´ve read has a chance to fuck up your recorder, although I don´t really have any idea about it

It's a Capcom fighter, during the golden age of Capcom fighters. That ALONE should guarantee that a good amount of people have played it.

Don't tell me that everyone skipped over this just to play Mahvel and Power Stone?

holy shit, george takei narrates that game

Wouldn't those old PC versions be difficult to run in Window 7 though? It is in fact easier to play them on the Dreamcast.

>> No.1844963

Yep, Soul Reaver is awesome on the Dreamcast. I'd also recommend Shadow Man and Blue Stinger. Blue Stinger only if you enjoy cheesy, so bad it's good games.

All of the official DC accessories were high quality. It just depends on whether or not you want all that plastic clutter. The arcade stick is well worth the investment since the standard controller is garbage for fighting games.

>> No.1844967

It's excellent. That was honestly a golden age for Capcom. The Dreamcast got arcade perfect ports of their fighters from that era.

>> No.1844975

I'd say that it's underrated in that Rival Schools never really achieved mainstream popularity, at least in the US. I bought a Dreamcast on 9/9/99 and I never played PJ until just a few years ago. Great fighter though.
