The season pass is free now, so there's that too.

All digital, by the way. I don't think that Battlefront has single-player content.

Ok, that sucks. My copy of Ys VIII for Vita didn't show. I didn't see it last week, but it shipped around when the previous report come out and thought it would be on this week's. Poop.

Via Dreamcast Live, 'Monaco Grand Prix: Racing Simulation 2 Online is back...online! Like most other Dreamcast games, you will need a DreamPi and preferable DC web browser, but connection is automatic. Monaco 2 supports up to six players in a race. There are still a few server bugs, but they are getting worked out. Check the OP for the link to the Dreamcast Live connection guide which has the necessary DNS server number.

I cleaned up some links above. Notably, Dreamcast Scene seems to have deleted everything from each of the site's pages outside of the homepage's news posts. I don't know why, because obviously the site is still up. They had a lot of good information.

I'm enjoying the Frontiersmen side-missions, since they have to do with urban legends. What is disappointing is that they just boil down to finding a clue or two, which is really easy, and it takes about twice as long to get to the spot on the map than to do the mission. I'm doing everything in the Frontier right now. The forts are pushovers (I'm not even an assassin yet) and the collectibles maps make things easy to find. But that's what I really like about AC games anyway. The Frontier is rather boring though, and there's less cohesion especially after Breath of the Wild, but I've always liked running around the cities in AC games the most. The swamp was my least favorite part of Liberation, and while the ocean was cool in Black Flag, the empty feeling islands didn't do much for me. But that's the nature of those environments, so I don't fault the devs on that.

I guess it just depends on how much you like those mini-games.

I may pick up Mario & Luigi down the line. It's the only entry in that series I've played, and I really enjoyed it.

Best Buy made available the Special Edition of Samus Returns this morning. It's sold out at Gamestop and only third party sellers are scalping on Amazon. Between the good reviews, GCU and a rewards cert, I made sure to order the SE this morning. I like that reversible cover. I wish the Samus amiibo was available separately.

Continuing my way through my backlog:

Assassin's Creed III Microsoft Xbox 360 - 8/10

I skipped this upon its initial release after the less than thrilled response it received. So far though, I am enjoying it quite a bit, and am enjoying the setting more than I thought (Boston in particular). I'm only through sequence 3, but the story, writing and acting are all solid. I'm glad there was a recap of Desmond's story at the beginning for a catch-up. I do have a few gripes, but mainly with the optional objectives: they aren't bad, but they aren't always clear how to accomplish them. I'd fail some without even knowing it. For example, after you ambush your former 'brother' early on, certain men of his can run off to alert cavalry, but there was no indication of this from the objectives, and I'd fail that portion. Likewise, the optional objectives are not kept on screen at all times, and are hidden two menus deep, which makes them hard to keep track of. I've also failed main missions because I didn't do exactly what the game wanted me to. Also, there's no crouching. Tough to sneak without it. Otherwise, it's classic AC gameplay to me, which is what I want. I'm still behind, with Rogue, Unity and Syndicate to play.


Breakers Sega Dreamcast - 4.5/10

This fighter was original released around 1999 on the Neo-Geo by Visco. JoshProd obtained the official rights to port the game to Dreamcast earlier this year. Something they are doing a lot, but their game choices are questionable.' Breakers' being one of them. It's a pretty standard Street Fighter II wannabe. The characters are similar (some blatant rip-offs), as are the stages and moves, to Street Fighter. I have a hard time pulling off complicated combos though. It's as if the game just doesn't register the button presses and stick movement (I'm using the official arcade stick), semicircles specifically. That's extremely frustrating, because the computer has no trouble with them. The computer also likes to fall back on a character's standard range move, and it's cheap. I tried going through the arcade mode, and got stuck on the third match with the Egyptian Dhalsim. Combos weren't being executed, and with that character's long range (and my character's lack of range EVEN THOUGH HE FIGHTS WITH A FENCING SWORD), I eventually gave up after roughly 20 attempts. The port job is decent, and I've never played the arcade original, but apparently it runs a little slow. I do notice this, along with slowdown.

So not the best fighter of the DC by a long shot, but a fun curiosity. But not a good curiosity at $40 (way cheaper than the Neo-Geo MVS or AES carts though). One point of praise: the physical production of the case, manual and disc are very high quality. They did a great job matching the Japanese Dreamcast-style packaging too. JoshProd's next Neo-Geo to DC port is 'Ganryu,' a 'Shinobi' wannabe, and while the port job is reportedly fantastic, the game itself is pretty bad. I'll probably skip that one for now.

I've been so busy with other things (namely the Irma that shifted course towards my grandparents), the 18 birthday of the Dreamcast slipped right by me. There were various celebrations around the internet to celebrate, so it's nice to see the DC is on the minds of gamers as a whole.

There are no pages up yet, but The Bit Station plans on stocking the JAP/USA-style versions '4x4 Jam,' and the re-releases of 'Alice's Mom's Rescue' and 'Ghost Blade.' They will also stock Retroguru's 'Hermes.' I'll make another post when those pages go live sometime this fall.

Alice Dreams Tournament is now available from the dev's official website shop. Both Japanese and USA style-packaging standard and collectors editions, as well as the PAL collectors edition are in stock for shipping. Previously, only Kickstarter backers were receiving their copies, but with shipping complete on those, the general public may purchase the game.

Video Games New York is also bolstering their stock of indie DC releases with some of Orionsoft's releases.

The OP has been updated with links.

It looks like Play-Asia will be shipping 'Flashback' and 'Ganryu' worldwide, without an address block. I was able to go all the way through the order process, though did not complete my order. It's also worth noting, for those that plan on purchasing both games, Play-Asia automatically adds a $5 discount when both games are in your cart. Shipping is a hair over $5 (less than Video Games New York too), so it's effectively free shipping.

I agree with you Admiral. The whole situation is icky.

I have a SNES preordered already, but I won't be getting the NES for myself. I'll get one for my sister, if possible, for her birthday next year.

If they've fixed navigation properly, I'd give Samus Returns a shot. I hated Metroid 2 as a kid. I was forever stuck running back and forth, and losing my bearings as to where I was. I never got anywhere in the original.

It often comes down to what type of area you're in and who can/chooses to afford one. I live in Grand Rapids, MI (a good size city with some wealth) and Switches are sold out pretty much everywhere. Yet, drive 20 mins down Fulton/M-21 to Lowell, a blue-collar town that non-residents may drive through if that, and their Meijer has had four in-stock for a couple of months now.

Pre-orders have officially opened at Video Games New York for 'Ganryu' and 'Flashback' (see two posts above for links). Each is $39.99 with a release date of October 13.

The Dreamcast Junkyard posted their review of 'Ganryu' yesterday. To some it up, it's a really good port of a really bad game. So would it be worth the $40? In my opinion, no. I'll probably skip it and I'm on the fence with 'Flashback,' but at least 'Flashback' has a widescreen mode and is basically the best version of the original game with everything that's included in it.

Time for an update on 'Henshin Engine.' The devs have released a new video update. Basically, a couple of the devs became seriously ill, and that set back completion of the game by a month. Back to being well, they plan on finishing the game in October, followed by bug testing and physical production of the discs. In the video, they showed off the final version of the Super Turbo CD game packaging and the physical soundtrack, which production as already completed. The DC version was always scheduled to come out after the Turbo version, but it shouldn't bee much long after.

Bioshock Infinite Microsoft Xbox 360

Spectacular. And I can't believe I avoided so many spoilers until I finally played it. It was nice to see sunlight in a 'Bioshock' game too. The graphics and aesthetics were awesome, and I spent much of the first couple of hours just walking around the environment and looking at everything (I still tried to find every nook and cranny throughout the game). The writing is just so good, and it hurts when I think about how we may never have another 'Bioshock' game, especially wone from Levine. As for Elizabeth, I enjoyed having her by my side, to have Booker converse with and just having someone else there unlike 'Bioshock.' That did take some of the suspense out that was present in 'Bioshock,' but she was legitimately helpful when I needed health or ammo. I'll wait for the season pass to go on sale again, but I'm really looking forward to playing the DLC.

Play-Asia has opened preorders for the Japanese/USA-style NTSC version of 'Flashback' and 'Ganryu,' with an estimated release date of next month. As with 'Breakers,' this seems to be a Play-Asia exclusive outside of Europe and the USA. As before, it looks like Video Games New York will be the USA exclusive retailer. The product pages for both games are up on VGNY, but not available to preorder yet. The OP has been updated with the following links:

- Play-Asia - Flashback (JAP/USA Case) Pre-Order
- Play-Asia - Ganryu (JAP/USA Case) Pre-Order
- Video Games New York - Flashback (JAP/USA Case) Pre-Order
- Video Games New York - Ganryu (JAP/USA Case) Pre-Order

I purchased 'Breakers' from VGNY because Play-Asia locked out USA addresses, and shipping was high at almost $8. I haven't tried pre-ordering either title from Play-Asia yet.
