It Lives!!!

By the power of Limewire, the ledgendary Sega MegaDrive lives on - on the Dreamcast! I've tried downloading Dreamcast stuff through Limewire loads of times, but every time it comes down, my trusty AVG pops up to tell me it's actually a Worm or a Trojan Horse cleverly disguised as a ROM for a defunct console. What an ingenius way of trying to infect the world. Here's a few poor quality shots of a DC immitating a MegaDrive, and not a sign of MacReady anywhere...

This download actually worked though (obviously) - 450 MD Roms and the emulator. It took about 2 hrs to download, but it was definatley worth it. All the classics are on the disk that I burned with Diskjuggler - All the Sonics, Flashback, Outrun...you name it, it's here. The people that created it (Obsidian) have even included a clever joypad converter that maps the MD buttons to the obscene DC pad. Cool.
The sound emulation in some of the games is very Amstrad (ie basic bleeps instead of the true sounds from the cart), but there are a few interesting things included, such as a Beta of never released sequel to Zero Tolerance, er...Zero Tolerance 2. for the uninitiated, ZT was basically the Mega Drive's answer to DOOM, but nowhere near as good.

On the evidence of this emulator, I wonder if a Saturn emulator/boot disky thing would be feasable for the DC. Something a bit like Bleemcast! but obviously with the added bonus that you could play NiGHTS...

Which kind of owner are you? The hardcore megadrive 1 owner or the sell out megadrive 2 owner?! You get double brownie points if you've got either a megadrive 3 or a multimega. Or a nomad. Geez, how many versions are there?!?!

I have the Multi-Mega one. HA.
Still, dreamcast emulaton is fun. I've burnt discs full of NES, SNES, mega Drive and even Amiga games (although the latter is far from prefcet yet).

Streets of rage? Shinobi? Micromachines? Golden Axe? Please tell me its all available on my DC!! As for a saturn emulator bring it on! (Although I still have a Saturn and Nights, and Virtua Fighter 1 & 2, and Fighting Vipers and Virtua Fighter Kids so maybe I don't need one)...
