Terraonion_MODEFor a long time now have been thinking about getting a GDemu for the Sega Dreamcast.  This is a device that replaces the disc drive in the Dreamcast.  In it’s place you put the GDemu.  The device lets you run games off an SD card.  However just found out there is a much better option coming out soon-ish called Terraonion MODE (Multi Optical Disc Emulator).  It works the same way as the GDemu but with a lot better features.  Firstly it can be use in either the Saturn or Dreamcast.  It is all so simple as plug and play.  But the best part is you can attach a SSD or a laptop hard drive.  Can still you a Micro SD card if you want but hard drives can hold so much more.  Really thinking about getting on.  It is in pre-order at them moment (April 2020). With a estimated ship dates of June/July 2020.  You can check it out for yourself with the link above.

Test_Drive_V-RallyGot to play an old favourite Dreamcast game the other night thought emulation.  It was Test Drive V-Rally.   Has been many years since last played this.  It was and still is a great rally game.  For such an old game now it holds up well.  The gameplay is still fun.  Thinking I just might have to dig out my Dreamcast and play some more.  The game was all so on the PlayStation and PC under the tile Need for Speed: V-Rally 2.  Not sure if I every played that version.  Just might have to check that one out.

GDemuFor a few years how have been thinking about getting a GDemu for the Sega Dreamcast.  This is a device that replaces the disc drive in the Dreamcast.  You take apart, remove the drive and in it’s place you put the GDemu.  The device lets you run games off an SD card.  It’s is pretty cool.  The thing is they were very pricey.  However now there are some clones out there.  Some going for about $70.00.  You can find them on Amazon and Ebay.  Going to think on it for a bit.  If I do get one will be back with a post.

NBA_2K2_CoverThe other night a few friends got together to hang out and play some games.  We decided to dig out an old Sega Dreamcast to play some games we have not played in a very long time.  It was fun to re-see some old game.  While some of them don’t hold up that well.  But still fun.  Want to talk about one game we spent the most time on, NBA 2K2.  When we first got our Dreamcast we would get together and play this game because it was four player.  But the best part was you can make your own characters.  Then were was the mode we played all the time, two on two street ball.  Like I said we have not played this game in a long time so we kind of forgot what the characters we made looked like.  It was really funny to see them.  I can remember making my guy with a really big ass with very thin legs.  It was the silly looking thing.  But did work to my advantage because the guy big ass was great at blocking other players getting to the net.  We all ended up making all new characters the craziest we could make them.  Haven’t had the much fun playing an old game in along time.  Think we spent well over three hours playing this game.
