Dreamcast for $150, or even FREE!!
Yup, that's right, from now until the end of August, DC is only $150.
That is after you get a $50 rebate. All you have to do is access the
internet through your DC, and POOF, Sega will send you 50 bucks. If you
don't have access to the internet, you can sign up for a free month of SegaNet.
Speaking of SegaNet, anyone who signs up with SegaNet for two years gets a $200
rebate and a free keyboard. So added together, that's a free DC, a free
keyboard, and a free game! Isn't Sega generous... For more
information check out dreamcast.ign.com.
That's right folks, the makers of Bleem!
are creating a version for DC. What does that mean? It means you can
play PlayStation (PSX) games on Dreamcast! The Bleem! disks will be sold
as four separate 'packs' (about $20 each), and each one is compatible with 100
games (usually grouped together by type of game). Of course the games will
be 'enhanced' by the DC. Games now run at twice the resolution (640x480),
use anti-aliasing, and bi-linear filtering. Sweet... Soon all you'll
have to do is pop in a Bleem!Cast disk, load it up, take it out, insert your PSX
game, and you have a working PSX.
How it will work with games that use the Dual-Shock, has yet to be seen (once
again the 'limited' capabilities of the DC controller are far too obvious...).
But Bleem! will be releasing there own controllers
for the DC, that are basically Dual-Shocks, called BleemPads.
A video game fan's dream console. Once Dreamcast
is online at least. Oh,
you can chat online right now, how could I forget... Still, the Dreamcast
(DC) does have its fair share of cool games. Sports games are one of my favorite type of
games, and Sega Sports sure knows how to make
them. Visual Concept's NFL2K was a masterpiece. It's what sold me on
the DC. It's a shame EA isn't on the DC:(, it will be interesting to see
how Sega Sports stacks-up against EA on PS2 this year. But Sega Sports has
one advantage that EA doesn't have right now, the DC is
online, Baby!! And of course DC has those cool VMUs
ODCM (The Official Dreamcast Magazine)
I would suggest you subscribe to this magazine, it's only like $15 for a year
(6 issues). Not for its content (which is just O.K. since it's only
bi-monthly, and hence the information in it can be somewhat dated at times), but
for the "FREE" GD disk that it comes with. You not only get
demos of upcoming games (it's what sold me on ChuChu), but you get updated
versions of the web browser. Not to mention it is where you can get Sega
Swirl, which is a cool (and FREE) puzzle game like Tetris. So, fill-out
that card that came with your DC today... or check out www.dreamcastmagazine.com
for more information.
This is Sega's latest take on the classic game of Tetris. While it does
not come close to Tetris' greatness, it's still loads of fun. Best yet,
it's FREE (beat that Sony!)! The game can be found on the GD's that come
bundled with issues of ODCM if you did not get it with your DC. You can
also download a PC version of the game
and check out high scores that have been submitted.
