That's a disappointment.


R-Type Dimensions Microsoft Xbox 360 - 7/10

I'm slowly working my way through the Xbox credit I have, and picked this up during the big sale last week. I have the first two R-Types on my tablet, which this contains, but have never really played either game. This compilation includes updated 3D visuals, which fit the game and can be switched to the original graphics at any time. The first couple levels can be a cakewalk on either game, but damn does the difficulty ramp up after that. I feel cheated almost. The ships are slow, but so often I find myself seeing an enemy or enemy fire, but they move to fast and you don't, and I feel myself willing the ship to move faster but it just doesn't.


Guwange Microsoft Xbox 360 - 8/10

Another game I picked up last week, and have waited to go on sale for years. The hook with this shooter is that you're running along the ground, not flying, so you have to traverse the area (stairs, walls, etc.) like you would a run and gun, but under bullet hell pressure. The graphics and style are pleasing, though I wish the window was a little bigger. There's a few game modes including one made for the console release, and a nice selection of characters to use. I play all my Xbox 360 shooters with the Hori Real Arcade Pro V Kai, and it works well.


Toukiden 2 PlayStation Vita - 8.5/10

I tried the demo to 'Toukiden Kawami,' and didn't really care for the get-locked-in-an-area-until-you-kill-everything-to-move-on type of gameplay. The series is described as a 'Monster Hunter' clone, and the first game did feel like one. The second, however, has come into it's own. It's open world for the most part and the gist is that you hunt down Oni, which may attack your main village. The gameplay is solid, if a little simple. There are a couple layers of tactics here with the weapon you choose and the powers-based Mitama you can use, but there isn't much in the way of combos or attacking tactics. Depending on the Oni, battles can be longer than expected, and the specific Oni you have to face have a great visual design, but are not particularly tricky.

The part of the game that really surprised me is the story and characters. After the events of the last game, during a battle called the Awakening, you are surprisingly teleported ten years into the future and come upon the village of Mahoroba where the shrine maiden holds a barrier protecting the city from the Oni. There's layers of story about the Oni, the politics of the city between the Guards and the Insiders (those protected within the barrier) and the Samurai and Outsiders (obviously, outside the barrier), espionage, the Slayers and their advising unit, plus individuals' struggles and subplots. It's all well written, and the Japanese voice acting does a good job of not making it melodramatic (though sometimes they speak during action events and you don't know what they're saying). This is what's really driving my to play the game. The story and writing as a whole is so interesting.

Of course, there's the usual open world things to do, like uncover the map and side quests. The game looks really good on the Vita, and this is what the Vita was meant for. Battles can get really hectic with large Oni and a party of up to four using their demon hands and specials, but the game maintains at least a 30fps with no slowdown. The story missions supposedly last over 15 hours, but there's a lot of optional content and a post-credit chapter to play. 'Toukiden 2' was released at a bad time, just after 'Breath of the Wild,' 'Horizon: Zero Dawn' and 'Nier Automata,' but I would say it's much more than a 'Monster Hunter' clone. I encourage any PS4 owner to give this a look, and definitely any Vita owner to pick it up.

eBay should send out emails or something, because I always miss these too.

PC posted an overview on his Dreamcastic Channel of how to mod a Dreamcast with an IDE Hard Drive. Essentially, and with quite a bit of soldering, he removed the GD-Rom drive and installed a hard drive with DreamShell. He used 'Soldier of Fortune' as an example of how it cuts down on load times, from around one minute to 15 seconds! Also a nice alternative if your laser dies and you'd rather not hear the disc drive reading your games.

I think they usually wait until they have them in hand. The Bit Station does that anyway.

Yeah. I actually got the listing to have the preorder button, but I might have gone through a UK link since The Dreamcast Junkyard is out of the UK. I'd rather support Video Games New York anyway, to help encourage them to carry more Dreamcast indie games. It's basically them and The Bit Station for US-based retailers now.

Hucast has gone quiet on Redux 2. On their website and Facebook page they don't even mention the Dreamcast anymore. But it's probably not much of a loss given everything surrounding Dux, Redux and all the re-releases.

Has anyone picked up 'Breakers' yet? The Dreamcast Junkyard did a great write-up on it not long ago. Right now only the PAL-style version is available through Rush on Game, but Play Asia has the reversible North American/Japanese-style version up for pre-order now, and Video Games New York will have pre-orders go up soon. VGNY has exclusive distribution rights in the US and Canada, while Play Asia has the rights in the rest of the world.

The game seems like a good port of the Neo-Geo original, and I'm looking forward to a new fighter on the Dreamcast.

According to The Dreamcast Junkyard, the Japanese and North American-style versions of 'Breakers' are actually reversible. Kind of cool. The Play Asia listing is now live for preorder, with a ship date of May 31st, with preorders going live at Video Games New York in the near future. Apparently, Video Games New York has exclusive US and Canada distribution rights, whereas Play Asia has distribution rights everywhere else.

I wonder then if Play Asia is allowed to ship to a US or Canadian address. In theory they shouldn't be able to. I'll probably wait and get my copy from Video Games New York.

Did that change remove older topics from all forums? All but six topics in my personal forum have disappeared and I noticed that in all the other forums, like the marketplaces, too.

It'll be region-free, so if you have a Dreamcast that can play CD-Rs and MIL-CDs, you'll be fine. Just the packaging will mimic Japanese-style Dreamcast cases. At least, it's supposed to when JoshProd first announced it, but the Play Asia listing makes it sound like either both or a mix of the Japanese-style and North American-style cases. Though I think they're just referencing the jewel case itself rather than the artwork.

That's the nice thing about these professional, commercial DC indie releases: the discs are region free but you can choose what region the case/artwork looks like (NA, PAL or Japanese). I usually choose the North American style, because most of my games are NA and I live in the US, but some look better in the Japanese-style. I think 'Breakers' looks better in the Japanese-style case/artwork, which is why I forwent the PAL-style release from March. Plus PAL cases take up twice as much space and are more fragile.
